Topic: SOURCE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
Bible Reading: Psalms 24:3-5
📖3….”Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
📖4….He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
📖5….He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.”
🔥The book of psalms, is one book that is full of only the real reason for forming man. God said in Isaiah 43:21 that, he formed man for Himself, primarily to show forth God’s praise. So, to have access into God’s righteousness, man’s vocal praises must not be lacking. Praise is compulsory because, the road to righteousness is spiced by either the people we walk with, stand with, or, those we sit with on the way. Note that the Psalms are not written for unbelievers to create faith in them, but for believers, for them to know how to walk with God to heaven.
🔥🔥The book of Psalms opened with a righteous man on his way to the Celestial City. This man has accepted Jesus Christ as his Saviour, but he was yet to arrive at his chosen eternal destination. To get there, he needed to be righteous. He needed to ascend the hill of God to receive righteousness… Psalm 24:3,5. Else, how would it be possible for him to produce righteousness, bearing in mind that God had said in Isaiah 64:6 that, whatever righteousness the man produced or worked out, is nothing but filthy rags? For this man to possess the righteousness required before accessing heaven, he has to go back to God to receive it.
🔥🔥🔥According to Genesis 15:5-6, this righteousness that is a treasure, which pilgrims must possess before the way to heaven becomes visible to them, is produced by believing the impossible. So, for us to possess righteousness, we must believe God for the most difficult tasks in our lives. God called Abraham righteous because, at the highest point of his sterility, he believed that his children will be as many as the stars in the sky. Apart from that, God also called righteousness in Isaiah 54:17, as an inheritance received by God’s servants. Beloveth, be a faithfully serving servant of God to be counted righteous.
🙏O Lord, accept the praises from my mouth as appreciation for all you have done for me, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Dearest Father, as I use your book as an anchor and compass, endow me with divine righteousness that is not mixed with dirt, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Thank you Father, for using Jesus’ righteousness to judge me worthy of your kingdom, in Jesus’ name.
