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

Ask

 

If we need wisdom
we can ask

for our Father
freely gives it

and there’s no shame
for the fact

only thanks
as we receive it.

**********

Lord, I need Your wisdom each and everyday. Help me remember to simply ask.

**********

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” James 1:5 NKJV

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
