He always acts rightly.

We should not question God. He is right and just in all He does. When we think God has acted wrongly, our understanding is flawed. God is God, and we are not. Why do we think that we can question Him? Is it not, because we think we understand the situation better than He does? How can this be true? It cannot because He knows all.

Because He is all-knowing, all-wise, all-powerful, and all-loving, we should accept and acknowledge He is always right regardless of how the situation appears to us.

God is just. He is right. All He does is just and right.

God rules in righteousness. To Jesus, He says, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;

A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions” (Hebrews 1:8-9).

God rules with a scepter of righteousness through His Son who loves righteousness. Righteousness is the quality of being morally right. Since God is the one who sets the standards of right and wrong, how could He be other than righteous? When we refer to God’s righteousness, we are referring to the fact that He acts according to the standards He has set. He is faithful to who He is and all that He has revealed about Himself in the Word. He keeps His Word.

We can trust His rule because His judgments are always according to His righteousness. He shall judge the world in righteousness, and He shall administer judgment for the peoples in uprightness (Psalm 9:8).

The judgment of God on sin is evidence of His righteousness. As He rewards those who accept His call to salvation, He will also judge those who refuse. We should not question this judgment. Is He not right to judge as He has said He would? This is what righteousness does. It lives and acts according to what is determined to be right. And, because He is God all He says is right. It could be no other way.

Since we have been chosen to be His children we should live according to His righteousness. It is not our place to decide what is righteous. We are to discern from Him what is right and do it. He has set the standards in His Word. We are to live according to all it said.
