Fruit Of Righteousness

 

The fruit of righteousness
is sown in peace

by those who make
peace too

born of His wisdom
pure and gentle

full of mercy
through and through.

**********

Lord, I desire Your righteousness to be sown in me and bear fruit, by the wisdom that only can come from You.

**********

“But where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing will be there.”

“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy, and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.”

“Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.”

James 3:16,17,18. NKJV

Swift To Hear

 

Oh Lord, may we all
be quick to hear

but not so fast
to speak

and even slower
to show anger

for its Your righteousness
we seek.

**********

Lord, I want to listen much more than I talk, and ask that anger be an emotion that I rarely rise to.

**********

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” James 1:19-20. NKJV

Sharing His Holiness

 

God disciplines us
for our good

so we can share
in His holiness

and while at the time
it seems sad

yet it yields the fruit
of righteousness.

**********

I can share in Your holiness through discipline , for You are with me.

**********

“For our earthly fathers disciplined us for only a short time as seemed best to them; but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness.”

“For the time being no discipline brings joy, but seems sad and painful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness [right standing with God and a lifestyle and attitude that seeks conformity to God’s will and purpose].”

Hebrews 12:10,11 AMP

Quenching Fiery Darts

 

Lord help me tuck Your truth
inside of me

as I prepare
for each day

keeping my emotions in check
with Your righteousness

and by faith sending satan’s
barbs away.

You are with me and provide me with all I need to face each day’s challenges.

“Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,”

“and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace,”

“above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.”

Glory In The Lord

 

In Your presence
there can be no glory
of anything of
the flesh

for its You
who give me wisdom
redemption and
righteousness.

**********

You are with me and are my glory.

**********

“For you see your calling brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.”

“. . . that no flesh should glory in His presence.”

“But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God – and righteousness and sanctification and redemption -“

“that, as it is written, ‘He who glories, let him glory in the LORD.’ “

1 Corinthians 1:26,29,30,31  NKJV   /    Jeremiah 9:34  NKJV
