"The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles." Psalm 34:17
Something happens to those whose hearts are right before the Lord: righteous living is what He places in us. He gives us His rightness within us. We still must choose the rightness He has placed within and this is where the Holy Spirit gives us the power to do so.
The righteous are those who walk according to the rightness they should do. God hears those who walk in His ways. He is the companion to those who choose to follow Him. When we turn our back on God, it isn’t Him who chooses not to hear us. It is amazing what God gets blamed for when we are the ones who have shunned Him.
We don’t earn righteousness, but God gives it to us. We then in turn walk in what He has provided for us. He has shown the way, but the questions become: will we walk in the way? God hears and delivers those who walk with Him. Righteous living is choosing to do things God’s way, which makes for a peace-filled life. We all want God to hear and deliver us. The benefits of living righteously will not even compare to what the world offers.
