Righteousness Makes You Audacious – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional January 12th



(Understand The Emboldening Power Of Righteousness)

TO THE BIBLE: Romans 3:22
“Even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference.”

When God wanted to judge the excessively sinful city of Sodom, Abraham presented a bold argument before Him.

He said to God, “Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” (Genesis 18:25).

Wow! How could a man have such incredible audacity to speak to God like that?

He wasn’t trying to be disrespectful or impudent; no! He was expressing the power of the gift of righteousness from God Himself.

Genesis 15:6 tells us, “And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.” Hallelujah!

It was with the gift of righteousness that Abraham was able to intercede for Sodom when God wanted to destroy the city.

God had said, “…Shall I hide from Abraham [My friend and servant] what I am going to do” (Genesis 18:17 AMPC).

The Bible says Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him for righteousness, and he was called the friend of God (James 2:23).

As a result of his faith, righteousness was bestowed on Abraham as a gift, and he could boldly engage God in an intercessory discourse.

Righteousness enables you to stand in the presence of God without a sense of condemnation or inferiority. This righteousness, according to our opening verse, is “to all and on all.”

That’s to let you understand the bestowal—the imputation of God’s righteousness to all men—the legal perspective of this righteousness. With this gift, you can decree a thing and have it established unto you.

Our righteousness is on the basis of a legal claim, yet because many aren’t aware they struggle with their faith, not sure whether or not their petitions would be granted.

But when you stand on His righteousness, you have no such doubts, because you have the pass! Your claims can’t be refused, because you stand in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Glory to God!

A righteousness from God—that divine acquittal by faith—has been manifested, and it’s imputed to my account! With this gift of righteousness, I have the boldness and confidence to stand before God without guilt, condemnation or inferiority, and pray to Him and expect answers. I have peace with God through the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!
