Righteous by Grace
“When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.” Psalm 34:17 (ESV)
We are righteous in God’s sight because we personally claim the life and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. We are not righteous in our own doings or our being, otherwise we would have no reason to cry out in help. We are a people living by grace, day by day. We live by faith and not by our own works or reason, so in our need we call out to our Lord and He delivers us.
Let’s pray today that as troubles arise we turn to the Lord God Almighty for help and deliverance.
