May 29: Righteousness

Psalm 18:20-24

      The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; 
according to the cleanness of my hands
 He has recompensed me.

For I have kept the ways of the Lord, 
and have not wickedly departed from my God.

For all His judgments were before me, 
and I did not put away His statutes from me.

I was also blameless before Him, 
and I kept myself from my iniquity.

Therefore the Lord has recompensed me according to my righteousness, 
according to the cleanness of my hands in His sight.

David didn’t understand that God delivered David because of God’s covenant with Abraham not because of David’s righteousness.  People make that mistake even today, but the Bible says that our righteousness is ‘like filthy rags.”  Righteousness that will save us eternally can only come by and through the righteousness of Yeshua.
