I will give thanks to the Lord because
of His righteousness,
and will sing praise to the name
of the Lord Most High. ( Psalm 7:17)
We might be thankful because of our families, our jobs, or our church. You might be thankful for material blessings or good health. We might even be patriotic and thank God for our great country or our freedoms. There are many reasons to be thankful. But, when was the last time you thought to be thankful because of God’s righteousness?
God’s blessings are manifest in your life because of His grace. Grace comes your way because God, in His goodness, sent His Son, Jesus, to pay the price for your sin. God’s gift is forgiveness of offenses through His Son, Jesus. That is His righteousness placed upon your miserable life. Thank God for His righteousness.
