DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
No One Can Be Justified In God’s Sight
God is a righteous Judge. If He is to give to every man according to the multitude of his iniquities, there will be no man living on earth today. If He is to sit in judgment with you, do you think you can escape His wrath? David understood this perfectly that no one can be justified in His sight, that no one can fulfil the demands of the law for justification, he, therefore, pleads with God to answer him in His faithfulness and righteousness and not to enter into judgment with him (vv. 1-2). That is what God does when He justifies a person. He imputes His own righteousness on that person and restrains from delivering the judgment of death due to that person and change that judgment to eternal life with God. Have you received this from God?
Point of Emphasis: Always plead for God’s mercy to be justified?
Prayer Point: Lord, justify me by Your faithfulness and righteousness.
