Jehovah Tsidkenu: The Lord Our Righteousness

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

Don’t you just love getting a good deal or making a trade for something you need? Well, this month’s name of God reveals the greatest exchange in all eternity. We give God our sin, and He gives us His righteousness! Isn’t that amazing? It’s also incredibly comforting when you come across verses like Leviticus 20:7, “Be holy, for I am the Lord your God.”

One thing is for sure: No matter how hard we try, our efforts always fall short of His holiness. Isaiah 64:6 and Romans 3:23 confirm this eternal truth – we are not righteous on our own. We can’t be. And that is all God wants us to recognize.

God’s desire is both simple and profound. He asks us to consecrate (set aside) the days of our lives to Him, so He can wrap His holiness around us! You are precious to God, and it has always been His desire to be intimately involved in your life. Isaiah calls it a robe of righteousness (Isaiah 61:10), and Paul lists it as part of the Christian’s armor (Ephesians 6:14).

The gift of righteousness is the gift of GOD HIMSELF – it cost the very life of Jesus Christ. Knowing God as Jehovah Tsidkenu helps you understand just how much you mean to Him: He was willing to die to be with you!

Like any gift, it is not earned. It is only enjoyed. Will you welcome Jehovah Tsidkenu into your days so that:

  • His glory can protect you
  • His power can flow through you
  • His wisdom can guide you
  • His purposes can fulfill you

Let’s rejoice over the precious gift of Jehovah Tsidkenu together.

I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For He has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of His righteousness (Isaiah 61:10 NIV).
