THE BLESSING OF WALKING IN RIGHTEOUSNESS
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness (Isaiah 41:10).
The words we just read in our opening scripture are quite inspiring and profound; amazing promises for Israel. While the fulfilment for Israel would be during the millennial reign of Christ, we presently live in, and enjoy those blessings as the Church of Jesus Christ. They’re our reality in Christ Jesus, NOW!
We’re fearless and walk in dominion because the Lord is our God; He’s our strength; we’re marvellously helped by Him. We’re upheld by the right hand of His righteousness. The right hand of His righteousness refers to Christ. And Christ is our righteousness (1 Corinthians 1:30). Hallelujah!
Then in Isaiah 54:17, He says “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper….This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.” This is part of the blessings of being His righteousness and walking in righteousness.
There’s more. In Isaiah 45:24, the Bible says, “Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.” Think about that! It says all your adversaries shall be ashamed. Anyone who’s incensed against you shall be mortified; disgraced. It’s the Word of the Lord.
Then in the twelfth verse of Isaiah 41, the Lord says concerning your adversaries, “Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing…” This is your heritage because you walk in His righteousness!
Then in Isaiah 51:7, He tells us never to be perturbed by the reproach of men. The Word already declared the end of their actions: they’d be abased and brought to shame! Yours is to keep walking in righteousness, bearing fruits of righteousness. The Bible says, “In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee” (Isaiah 54:14). Glory to God! This is your life. Walk in the light of it.
I’m established in righteousness; I’m led by the Spirit in the triumphal excursions of life. Christ is my victory and my righteousness. He’s the glory of my life; in Him I live and move and have my being. Hallelujah!
“In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.
15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.”
“When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.”
“And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;
70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:
71 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;”
1 John 4:4
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

#KeepSayingIt Wednesday, 1st March 2023
I am a testimony and the inheritor of the blessings of Abraham through my association with Christ. I prosper and I live in the manifestation of your infinite blessings because I’m Abraham’s seed. I’m an heir according to the promise and a joint-heir with Jesus. I’m blessed in the city; I am blessed in the field, and in my going out and in my coming in! I am full of the joy of the Holy Ghost, and that joy gives me strength and vitality every day.
I have in me the indestructible life! Daily, I walk in health, victory, prosperity, and strength because the Greater One lives in me! Every fibre of my being, every bone of my body, and every cell of my blood is inundated with divine energy! I declare that my faith is alive and producing health in my body, therefore; I refuse to entertain doubts in my heart, for I know my faith always works. I’m not moved by what I see, feel or hear; I’m only moved by the Word of God. I’m living in health 24hrs a day, 7 days a week; no weapon formed or fashioned against me shall prosper. There’s life in my bones, tissues, muscles, tendon, and ligaments; I’m alive unto God. That same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in me; therefore, my entire being is vitalized. I dwell continually in health through the working of His mighty power in me, Hallelujah!
Jesus has made my life beautiful! I’ll never walk in sickness or defeat! The victorious and glorious life is mine now and always. The Word of God is working mightily in me. It doesn’t matter what may come my way; I’m a victor and I’ve overcome because I’m more than a conqueror. I’m born for health, success and the glory of God in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

Hebrews 8:10-11 says, ‘For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest’.
This blessing promised to Israel, which they’ll experience at the millennial reign of Christ, is a present reality to the Church. And so today, we pray fervidly in tongues of the Spirit, declaring the Scripture is being fulfilled in our day, and many more are coming to know the Lord and walk in His righteousness. Hallelujah!
