Righteousness, Law, Fear, Salvation

July 14, 2014

Isaiah 51:7-8

“Listen to Me, you who know righteousness,
You people in whose heart is My law:
Do not fear the reproach of men,
Nor be afraid of their insults.
For the moth will eat them up like a garment,
And the worm will eat them like wool;
But My righteousness will be forever,
And My salvation from generation to generation.”


God is so Good! His Word is truly and alive and powerful. I was very blessed this morning to receive several awesome nuggets in my devotion time this morning, I wanted to share one of them with you.

As many of you may know there is only one interpretation of every scripture or passage within God’s Holy Word. But being that is alive, powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword; there are also many different applications for each verse.

This verse spoke to me today about the current state of believers, and our hearts, our fears and our struggles against an increasingly growing secular world. It seems to me that more and more people want less and less of God and the Bible. And it is completely natural for us as Christians to feel intimidated and hide our faith behind the walls and distractions of this world.

BUT, I believe the verse above is relevant for us today! Those who know righteousness, are those of us who know and believe in Jesus Christ as the Risen Lord who died for our sins.

His Law, God’s Law is on our heart. Not that we are held by the law, but we desire to observe the law or the commands within God’s Word because we know that they are guard rails for our lives.

We must not fear the thoughts of men. How they view us. What living out our faith may do to our reputation or standing. The Bible says,  if we are ashamed of Him, He will be ashamed of us. The Word also that when we trust in Him, and live according to His Word, we will find favor with God and man. So don’t fear man.

This verse gives us a picture of how everything in this world will fade away. Everything that man values and esteems in this world be eaten up.

But the RIGHTEOUSNESS and SALVATION of God is forever!! Not only for you but for your kids, your family and every generation after you!!

Sounds like a no brainer, but we all know easier said than done.

So call on God and He will answer. Knock and the door will be open. Seek Him first and everything else will be given to you. Open the door of your heart and let Jesus Christ come all the way in, not halfway, not when it’s convenient, but all the way in! When you see the fruit of this type of life you will never turn back!

Pray this from your heart…

Heavenly Father I ask that you keep my heart soft, and receptive to YOUR words that YOU will powerfully move in my heart. That YOU will give me an unquenchable desire and hunger for YOUR Word, YOUR Truth and YOUR Mercy. That I will seek YOU with all my heart and love YOU with all my heart, mind, body, and soul. In Jesus Name Amen!

    Amen, amen. Romans 8:38-39, “for I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
