Word for Today
The Word (53)-the Word of righteousness.
“For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” (Romans 14:17)
If you want to work in the righteousness of God, there is no alternative but cleave to the word of God and meditate on the Word day and night.
Only the word of God can lead you on the path of righteousness. Without the word of God, you would be doing many things that seem right but the end of it is death (Proverbs 14:12). The word of God is always right and all the works of God are done in righteousness (Psalm 33:4).
If you are unable to make much progress in life or if it seems as if you are rotating in one spot, examine yourself in the light of the the word of God. The book of Proverbs says:
“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” ( Proverbs 14:34)
Father, please, give me the grace to work and walk in the righteousness of your word in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
