The Righteous

One of the images I use to keep me focused is the vision of Jesus placing His Robe of Righteousness around my shoulders and then wrapping His own arms around me and holding me to keep me warm. He gave me this image while in a training and it's been ingrained in my mind and has helped me many times to get through some difficult times. Because of His Righteousness, He declares me righteous. I cannot do anything on my own, but through Him, there is the ability to do right! He has me covered.
This morning I read in Psalms, chapters 34 and verse 17 says this: "The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles."
I know this is true. I am righteous in Him. I cry out to Him all the time, and I have experienced His deliverance. Sometimes, it feels like it's not going to come, but in time He always delivers. His Robe is wrapped around me, and I am warm.
I received a message from someone dear saying that I was being pruned. I replied and asked how long pruning lasts! No one can really answer that question, but I can continue to cry out to God and Say That Again, and know that He will deliver me from my troubles. For He is good all the time.
