Morning devotion: Read Psalm 119

Psalms 119:142  ¶Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.

Psalm 119:144  The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.

God’s righteousness and His word’s righteousness is everlasting. It will never lose its righteousness.

This one point of the everlastingness of God and His word, and the righteousness of it brings some very promising and very egregious consequences.

For instance: God tell us that Jesus is the only way to salvation and righteousness.

Romans 10:9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

His word is everlasting and righteous. If one attempts to circumvent that everlasting righteous word. They will never, ever, be saved.  Everlasting means everlasting, it will not change.

Secondly: when one trusts in the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal saviour, as mandated in the everlasting righteous word, they will have everlasting righteous salvation.

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Thirdly: If one refuses the everlasting righteous word of God. Their demise is also everlasting.

2 Thessalonians 1:9  Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

For the born-again believer these are comforting words. We know we will never lose our salvation nor will God ever forsake us. Since God is everlasting righteousness, those in Christ Jesus will be everlasting righteous. The promises of God are everlasting because He who made those promises is everlasting.

Just think, everlasting righteousness, everlasting salvation, everlasting heaven and an everlasting peaceful relationship with God in Christ Jesus. What a joy!

David said in Psalm 119:144  “The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.”

He wanted understanding of those principles of righteousness for that is life. He wanted to understand so he could live and operate according to God’s righteousness.

What about you, do you know the everlasting righteousness of God and His word? Do you have everlasting righteousness in Christ Jesus? Or are you facing another everlasting and devastating future? 

The choice is still yours,
