Rhapsody of Realities 1 March
SCRIPTURE: Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness (Isaiah 41:10).
The words we just read in our opening scripture are quite inspiring and profound; amazing promises for Israel. While the fulfilment for Israel would be at the millennial reign of Christ, we presently live in, and enjoy those blessings as the Church of Jesus Christ. They’re our reality in Christ Jesus, NOW!
We’re fearless and walk in dominion because the Lord is our God; He’s our strength; we’re marvellously helped of Him. We’re upheld by the right hand of His righteousness. The right hand of His righteousness refers to Christ. And Christ is our righteousness (1 Corinthians 1:30). Hallelujah!
Then in Isaiah 54:17, He says “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper….This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.” This is part of the blessings of being His righteousness and walking in righteousness.
There’s more. In Isaiah 45:24, the Bible says, “Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed. Think about that! It says all your adversaries shall be ashamed. Anyone who’s incensed against you shall be mortified; disgraced. It’s the Word of the Lord.

Then in the twelfth verse of Isaiah 41, the Lord says concerning your adversaries, “Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing…” This is your heritage because you walk in His righteousness!
Then in Isaiah 51:7 He tells us never to be perturbed by the reproach of men. The Word already declared the end of their actions: they’d be abased and brought to shame! Yours is to keep walking in righteousness, bearing fruits of righteousness. The Bible says, “In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee” (Isaiah 54:14). Glory to God! This is your life. Walk in the light of it.
PRAYER: I’m established in righteousness; I’m led by the Spirit in the triumphal excursions of life. Christ is my victory and my righteousness. He’s the glory of my life; in Him I live and move and have my being. Hallelujah!
Isaiah 54:14-15 (AMPC) – 14 You shall establish yourself in righteousness (rightness, in conformity with God’s will and order): you shall be far from even the thought of oppression or destruction, for you shall not fear, and from terror, for it shall not come near you. 15 Behold, they may gather together and stir up strife, but it is not from Me. Whoever stirs up strife against you shall fall and surrender to you.
Psalm 27:2-3 (KJV) – 2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. 3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
Luke 1:69-71 (KJV) – 69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David; 70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: 71 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;1 John 4:4 (KJV) – 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
