I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness

Only a wise person knows how to recognize the justice that comes from God, from the Most High, that is why we must praise His name for His justice and not for our own justice.

The psalmist David praises the Lord because he recognizes that his own righteousness could not surpass that of our God. That is why we see this prayer from the psalmist, in which we notice that this man asked for vindication:

I will praise the Lord according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the Lord most high.

Psalm 7:17

If you read that complete psalm you will see the psalmist raising songs to the Lord for His justice, it is clear that David clarifies that it is not for his own justice, but for the Lord’s.

In this chapter in some verses we could see that this man asked God for those men who were evil, whose hearts were in darkness, but despite all this, David did not stop praising the Lord.

It is good that, like the psalmist, we can say: “I will praise you Lord according to Your justice and not my own.” Let us take our causes before the Lord just as David did and trust Him faithfully.

Flee from fornication
The Lord will carry out His sentence on earth with speed and finality
