A mighty good leader is on the way

Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will raise up for David a righteous branch. This is the name by which He will be called: "The Lord is Our Righteousness." (Jeremiah 33:15)

He shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.

Jehovah Tsidkenu means "The Lord, our Righteousness." God's judgment would be terrifying were it not for God's mercy. Abraham believed God and it was accounted to him as righteousness. Jesus is that righteous branch of the house of David, we can stand before God because of His righteousness, not our own. That should give us all hope.
