Righteousness is more than living right in the eyes of God. There are major benefits to giving up your past life for a new one. When Jesus went to the cross, heaven discussed spiritual benefits that will help His children walk circumspectly into their divine purpose. I find it so amazing to know that God loves us so much that He wants to reward us for living right for Him.
When I speak of rewards, I’m not talking about anything monetary. What I speak of is God’s protection and His ability to hear us when we pray. To know that God is watching over us and hearing our deepest most private feelings is something money can’t buy. To have a Supreme Being (God) who is omnipresent in our life should cancel all fear of being alone.
Now that you are aware of the wonderful benefits of a loving Father, what changes will you make to ensure that your walk with God is one that is holy and righteous? Take some time during prayer to tell God all about it.
Prayer: I thank you Lord for being such a kind and loving Father. I know that I am not a perfect child, but I choose to live a life that is well pleasing to you. Amen
Scripture: For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” 1 Peter 3:12
