TEXT: Proverbs 14:34

MEMORIZE: “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. ” (Matthew 5:6)
Our God is the embodiment of holiness. Whoever wants to walk with Him, must have the same nature of holiness. God’s dwelling is a holy abode. Therefore, having a right standing with God brings us into the Father/son relationship with Him. God delights in the righteous — to be their Father, provide for them, fight, heal, protect and bless them. Jesus during His earthly ministry made us to know that the Father had not left him because He was always doing those things that pleased Him. Therefore, to have the presence of God abiding with us today and always, we must endeavour to do those things that please Him by following after righteousness in every aspects of life. Righteousness is a symbol of holy living and having a right standing with God. Remember, God’s blessings for those who keep His commandments always have no limit.
Abstain from sin. Sin is destructive and brings reproach, curses, shame and eternal damnation. No sin is little in the sight of God. He is too holy to behold sin or be with someone who indulges in it. How is your relationship with God in your office, business, home, marriage, on the road, in your closet, etc? Are you a chosen in the town and a palm wine drinker, cigarette smoker, fighter, confusionist, etc, in the village? Are you serving God because of what to eat and drink, for promotion, marriage, etc? Remember whatsoever a man sow, he shall reap. If you are living in compromise, not obeying the totality of the word of God, how do you expect him to bless you? Yearn to live an upright life; cease to do evil and then you will be exalted by God Almighty.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. I repent from all forms of unrighteousness in my life, in Jesus’ name.
2. Lord Jesus, I pray for the grace to live a holy and a righteous life and to please you always, in Jesus’ name.
3. Holy Spirit, let the seed of righteousness planted by your breath in my life; begin to experience growth, in Jesus’ name
4. Lord, I pray that you increase the level of faith and righteousness upon our G. O and Mummy in the Lord every day by day, in Jesus’ name.
