40: God’s rule of right and wrong is woven into your being.

All [our Lord] does is just and good, all his commandments are trustworthy. They are forever true, to be obeyed faithfully and with integrity.
Psalm 111:7-8 NLT

Created in the image of God, all of us have God’s basic morality written on our hearts. Evident through our conscience, all peoples know and recognize injustice, inhumanity, and cruelty… especially when it happens to them.

Even Gentiles, who do not have God’s written law, show that they know his law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it. They demonstrate that God’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right.
Romans 2:14-15 NLT

Simply because He is God – our Creator and Keeper – His rule of law is to be obeyed. Check your spirit, today: Where are you acting out in rebellion?
