Text: Psalms 37:25
I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
Righteousness is an all-encompassing word that speaks of living approvable to God. Show me a being who is righteous and I will show you someone in whom God resides and therefore blossoms. To live a righteous life is to obey and do all the things the Lord commands including not collaborating with sinners, the scornful or the ungodly. Every such person obtains his supplies directly from the Lord who remains his Source. Righteousness enables you to turn from failure to success like Peter after toiling as a failure all night, who through righteous indignations caught a draught. He simply obeyed the Word of the Lord. It does not matter the level at which you operate currently, your life can have better meaning if you will resolve to live righteously in God. A successful person is one who leaves an heritage for his descendants. What you do today has effect on your future, upon your descendants. Those who live a righteous life are cared for by God: He provides for them, defends them, fights their battles, guides them and promotes them because He has preference for them and they give Him pleasure. Does your life give God any pleasure? That negative manifestation may be as a result of unrighteousness. Please check and make amends. God is faithful to bring His promises to pass concerning you. Your righteousness is hinged only on love. Some believe it is not possible to live in righteousness. It may not be easy for the carnally minded, it is however easy for those who look unto Jesus our eternal example. Look unto Him: whatever He will not do, don’t do. Remember, there is no greater love than for a man to lay down his life for his friends. Live right.
Father, I want to enjoy your comfort through my generations; Please keep me in righteousness till I meet with you in Jesus name.
