What does it mean to be righteous? You can look it up, and you will find something along the lines of “being morally right.” In God’s case, it means that all He does is right — He is the creator of what we call “right,” because it is an extension of who He is. It is not something He made up or a list of rules He came up with. Rather, it is a way of describing God’s character and identity.
Can you think of a time when you were truly scared? Now try to imagine the same situation with the all-powerful creator of the universe standing next to you, His hand on your shoulder. This is His promise to us, in the simple words, “I am with you.”
