Work And Effect Of Righteousness.
“And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.” Isaiah 32:17
When you finally come to terms with your righteousness in Christ, which is not by your works but simply by faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, you will enter into an arena of peace you have never enjoyed.
Notice the text for today tells us something very powerful. The work of righteousness – that is, what righteousness delivers to you is PEACE, SHALOM – nothing broken, nothing missing in your life. The effect it produces is quietness and assurance. You must understand that peace, quietness and assurance are not really absence of challenges. But rather a knowing that no matter the challenges you are guaranteed victory. When you have the peace of God, no matter the storm, you will be relaxed knowing that head or tail your win.
I remember the account of Jesus in the storm with his disciples in Mark 4; while the turbulence was on, He was fast asleep. The storm could not wake Him until His disciples called on Him. The disciples were so amazed that he could be asleep in the midst of the storm. They did not know what Jesus knew. Jesus knew that He was on an assignment at it was impossible for anything to kill Him before the assignment is fulfilled. Secondly, He also knew that His Father is in absolute control. Think of it: why should you panic when your Father, who loves you so much is in absolute control. That experience was a display of the work of righteousness, which is peace and the effect which is quietness and assurance, that is your portion today in Jesus’ name.
