To put it pure and simple, righteousness means doing what is right.
What are the results of doing what is right in all areas of our life? Isaiah 32:17,18 puts the answer in a short and simple manner ~
" The work of righteousness (doing what is right) shall be peace,
and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance forever.
And My people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation,
and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places."
I will keep doing what is right in every area of my life. These promises from God are as steadfast and as sure as the fact that water is wet! Feed the poor when we see them, pray for and visit the lost, lonely, and sick. Give God's work a portion of what we have.
On occasions when the enemy tries to get a foothold and gain ground, and he always will try, we can show him the door and tell him that there is no place for him in our home or in our life.
Our destiny is now, and will forever be, reaping our promised reward for the works of righteousness ( doing what is right) .
AND QUIET RESTING PLACES They are promised from our Father.
