Word for Today: Righteousness (5)- Let righteousness flow.
Ministry of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality
“But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream” (Amos 5:24).
The good Lord wants righteousness to flow out of us like a mighty stream. Do everything possible to stand for what is right as contained in the word of God. Many people compromise easily, believing it’s for the sake of peace. Any peace that is not founded on truth, justice and righteousness in the word of God, can not be true peace. Prophets Jeremiah noted faulty peace at his time: “For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace” (Jeremiah 8:11). It’s better to war war than ‘enjoy’ peace that is not based on the righteousness of God.
In everything you do, let your life promote the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus on earth. Where the righteousness of God flows, it attracts justice, fairness, mercy, integrity, divine abundance and love.
God is pleased when you promote His righteousness on earth. Without righteousness, it’s difficult to please God. Everything works well with the righteousness in the word of God, including our faith. The just or the righteous shall live by faith.
“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant” ( Psalm 35:27).
“For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith” (Romans 1:17)
Please, keep your thoughts and mind healthy and ‘cleanse it with the washing of water by the word’ (Ephesians 5:26). Your destiny is dependent on your predominant thoughts, beliefs , confessions and actions.
Have a blessed new day.
Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
Thank you Jesus for a brand new day of perfection.
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Our Father and our God, please help us in our desire to let your righteousness constantly flow out of us in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
