According to My Righteousness

David’s prayer in Psalm 7 is an amazingly bold approach to God. He asks God to judge him “according to my righteousness”, and explains that righteousness in terms of his own practical obedience to God’s law. This is not overweening pride or works-righteousness, but a realization of what it means to be a friend of God, a member of His covenant. David, by God’s grace, has kept the covenant, and now he is asking God to keep His side of the covenant. As we come to God today, we should use our faithful, faith-wrought obedience as proof to God that we really are His people, and we can be sure that God saves His own.
