Vs. 137 — Righteous are You, O Lord, And upright are Your judgments.

Charles H. Spurgeon:

God is always right, and he is always actively right, that is, righteous. This quality is bound up in our very idea of God. We cannot imagine an unrighteous God.  … That which comes from the righteous God is itself righteous. Jehovah both saith and doth that which is right, and that alone. This is a great stay to the soul in time of trouble. When we are most sorely afflicted, and cannot see the reason for the dispensation, we may fall back upon this most sure and certain fact, that God is righteous, and his dealings with us are righteous too. It should be our glory to sing this brave confession when all things around us appear to suggest the contrary. This is the richest adoration—this which rises from the lips of faith when carnal reason mutters about undue severity, and the like. (Spurgeon, C. H. (2009). The treasury of David: Psalms 111-119 (Vol. 5, p. 390). Bellingham, WA: Logos Bible Software.)


Righteous are You, O Lord, and upright are Your judgments. May I never question the actions that You take, and therefore, may I never question that You are sovereignly acting though I do not see Your judgments carried out with my eyes. You, O’ God, are righteous and just in all that You do and there is nothing that exists that You are not over and in control of. Help us, as Your saints, to rest in Your sovereignty.
