The Righteous and problems do not get along
Psalms 37:30,31 -
The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom [wisely], and his tongue talketh of judgment. The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
It is very difficult to get into people's head that the righteous will never face problems in life.
No doubt the Bible does say problems will be there in the life of a believer living in this world but we need to differentiate between problems existing around us and problems affecting us.
One thing we need to understand when we use the word 'righteous' it does not mean we are righteous. By faith we are called righteous but in reality we will receive righteousness only when we are justified in Christ on the Day of Judgment. Righteousness is a free Fruit given only to those in Christ who believe in Him and keep the Words of His Father (The Holy Spirit). A person is called righteous when he or she pursues righteousness, meaning walks in the ways of the Lord with fear of the Lord.
When a righteous speaks it is not only the content but also the presentation (delivery and timing) which is perfect. A righteous will never compromise on the truth and will always be in right judgment.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord Jesus, it is only because of You that we are called righteous otherwise all our righteousness is like rags. It is only because of You that we have the Law within us and the Writer of the Law to help us. O Holy Spirit, Lord, You are the One Who helps us walk the path of righteousness and be called righteous. Help us Lord to be an example to this world and show how we are over all problems and how the problems are below our feet...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
