Righteousness and peace // 07-11-22

Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.” Psalms 85:7-10 NIV

I’ve been thinking a lot recently about the relationship between righteousness and peace. It’s not talking here about our righteousness, our human ability or futile attempts to behave in a right way, that leads to peace, but the righteousness of God that He imparts to us. This whole Psalm reminds us that it’s He who blesses, He who restores, He who forgives and covers our sin, He who revives us, He who shows us unfailing love and grants us salvation. It’s all Him – How? “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” 2 Corinthians 5:21 NIV. Now that’s where we find peace! Lord thank You that I can stand in Your righteousness today, free from guilt, walking in the peace that I have as I believe and trust in You. Amen 🙌🏼😊
