Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Sunday 22nd August 2021

Every child of God is a king in this life, and called
to reign in righteousness. Righteousness gives
you the ability to stand in the presence of God without
condemnation to stand in fellowship with God, having
His rightness in your spirit. This is where our audacity
of faith comes from.
This is the reason we’re bold to make demands
in His Name, decree a thing and have it established.
It’s because our righteousness is of Him, not what you
did or didn’t do, but what Jesus did. God declared
you righteous freely, and declared Himself to be
righteous by so doing: “To declare, I say, at this time
his righteousness: that he might be just, and the
justifier of him which believeth in Jesus” (Romans
3:26). Hallelujah!
Righteousness makes us masters it gives us
dominion. You’re not a victim, but a victor in Christ
Jesus. John knew this and declared, “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” (1 John 4:4).
God has imparted His nature of righteousness to
you, and that’s what makes you like Him. That nature
makes you think, see, and talk like Him. You’ve been
raised to His level through Christ. Our opening verse
says, “…they which receive abundance of grace and
of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one,
Jesus Christ.” You’ve received grace to reign over and
above Satan and the elements of this world.
The Bible says He’s made us kings and priests
and we shall reign on the earth. Kings reign by issuing
decrees and pronouncements Ecclesiastes 8:4 says,
“Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who
may say unto him, What doest thou?” No wonder
the Bible says you shall decree a thing, and it shall be
established unto you (Job 22:28).


Holy and righteous Father, thank you for giving me your righteousness, granting me the ability to boldly stand before you without guilt, condemnation, inferiority or blame. In righteousness, I reign and rule in life, bringing glory to your Name. I walk in perpetual victory, manifesting your glory in every place, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
