Dear friend, today the Lord is blessing you with His promise which is taken from Isaiah 54:14 where He says, “In righteousness you shall be established; You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; And from terror, for it shall not come near you.” What a beautiful affirming promise of God!
How can God establish you in righteousness? Our God has the heart of a mother. We all have the experience of our mothers being concerned about our character and wellbeing, waking us up in the mornings and making sure that we have read our Bibles, isn’t it? The same goes with our Lord too. He is also concerned about our character and wellbeing. This is well said in Isaiah 50:4: “The Sovereign Lord has given me a well-instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed.” This is the motherly heart of God! In this manner, the Lord establishes you with righteousness. So, my friend, be sensitive to God. Always be willing to listen to Him and obey His Word.
When you thus obey God, He will fill you with a new tongue. In Zephaniah 3:9 the Lord says, “I will purify the lips of the peoples, that all of them may call on the name of the Lord and serve Him shoulder to shoulder.” Yes, my friend, the Lord Himself will purify your lips. When you cling on to this loving God, Who cares about you constantly like a mother; Who has a covenantal love toward you; Whose character never changes with time, He will lead you into righteousness. My friend, today, may this loving Lord bless you with His righteousness. The good news is our loving Lord Jesus has already exchanged His righteousness so that you can lead a clean and pure life before Him. Yes, He who knew no sin gave Himself for you so that you will have His righteousness. When you have God’s righteousness you will fear no more. You will see oppression no more. You will no more be put down. But, instead, you will walk with your head lifted high above all the people. This is how the Lord establishes your life. So, rejoice and be glad!
Loving Lord Jesus, thank You for speaking to me through Your Word. Lord, thank You for exchanging Your righteousness on the cross for me. Lord, I commit my life into Your loving hands. Change me from within and help me to lead a pure life before You. Lord, as You have promised, establish me in Your righteousness. Lord, purify my lips and fill me with a new tongue. Help me to experience a difference in my spiritual life, every day. Lord, grant me a close walk with You. I love You, Lord Jesus. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
