21 February 2024: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS – JEHOVAH TSIDKENU (1) – Jeremiah 23:5-6

Today we shall look at one of the most special names of the Lord – JEHOVAH TSIDKENU. Have you ever been in a situation that justice is being denied you and you looked for someone to take your case but such a person is absent? God has not left us at the mercy of the devil; He has revealed Himself by the covenant name Jehovah Tsidkenu; the Lord that is the righteousness, the justification, the justifier, and the defender of His people.

There are two sides to God – James 2:13: the judgment side of God and the merciful side of God. When man sinned, the devil thought he had cornered man, and he started his accusation: ‘God must send man to hell.’ But God said, ‘My mercy will find a way’ and the mercy of God finding a way, sent Jesus Christ into the world to die. Once you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, any time you make a mistake, and you tell God “I’m sorry, I have sinned”; the Bible says Jesus Christ our advocate will appear before the Father for you and plead your case and you can be free from the accusation of the devil.

It is when you don’t come to God that the devil accuses you successfully and holds you in bondage.

There is a huge difference between accidentally falling into sin and deliberately living in sin and not changing, (and I am not talking of God justifying people that are living in sin without changing) but if you make a mistake, the Holy Spirit will convict you in your heart and you lose your sense of peace. When you immediately confess your sins, the Lord appears for you as your advocate before the Father.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for Jesus is my righteousness and justifier. I receive grace to walk daily in this reality in Jesus name.

Leviticus 11:1-12:8, Mark 5:21-43, Psalm 38:1-22, Proverbs 10:8-9
