Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 1st – Embrace God’s Righteousness

(True Righteousness Is From The Lord)

TO THE BIBLE: Romans 10:3-4 NIV
“Since they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.”

LET’S TALK
Righteousness isn’t something you achieve by the things you do or don’t do; it’s a gift you receive freely from God when you’re born again. He justifies you and declares you “not guilty” of all wrongs the moment you come into Christ Jesus (Romans 3:24).

Apostle Paul talked about this righteousness in Philippians 3:9: “…That I may [actually] be found and known as in Him, not having any [self-achieved] righteousness that can be called my own, based on my obedience to the Law’s demands (ritualistic uprightness and supposed right standing with God thus acquired), but possessing that [genuine righteousness] which comes through faith in Christ (the Anointed One), the [truly] right standing with God, which comes from God by [saving] faith” (AMPC).

You see, this righteousness from the Lord comes by faith in Jesus Christ, and when you’re conscious of it, you can cast out devils with ease. All you need to say is, “I’m the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus!

Devil, get out of here, in Jesus’ Name!” However, if you’re ignorant of this truth, the devil can deceive you, and even go as far as threatening you, because you don’t know who you are.

So what? Know who you are and what you have; you’re the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus! Your human perfections and righteousnesses are as filthy rags before God (Isaiah 64:6); so just embrace His righteousness. Jesus paid fully for you to have it, and with it, you rule and reign in this life (Romans 5:17).

Go Deeper
Isaiah 54:17; Ephesians 2:4-7; Titus 3:4-7

Pray:
Dear Father, I’m confident in Jesus’ sacrifice on my behalf, by which I’ve been made righteous. Now, I can stand boldly before you, in love and fellowship, without guilt, condemnation, or inferiority! By abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness that I’ve received, I rule and reign over the devil and circumstances, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
