Rule In Your World.
“For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:17
Righteousness is not right “doing” but right “being”. In other words it is not what you have done right. You cannot really do right until you are made right. That is why God gave you His righteousness- Nature-Character-Right-standing so that you can do Right – conduct, once you have been made right or conduct yourself rightly. The text says the gift of righteousness causes us to reign in this life.
What a beautiful revelation from Paul. This gift gives me boldness to approach God without any fear of inferiority, condemnation or guilt. I expect Him to honour every request I present before Him. The gift of righteousness also causes you to stand boldly before the devil without any fear or intimidation. There is a knowing that the devil will have no choice than to obey.
I know you have probably been conditioned to earning righteousness; but let me burst your bubble if you are in that category – you cannot earn God’s righteousness. Try as much as you can, do all you know to do, you cannot earn a right standing with the Father by your works. It was the complete failure to earn righteousness that brought Jesus to the scene – He became sin, who knew no sin, that you might be made the righteousness of God. So He carried out a divine exchange – exchanged His righteous nature for your own sinful nature and nailed it eternally on the cross that you might have His righteousness.
When you have this understanding, it will cause you to rule in your world. Celebrate the gift of righteousness.

Habitation Of The Lord. RCCG Open Heavens. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye.
Memorise: If thou wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous. – Job 8:6
Read: Psalms 97:10-11 (KJV)
10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.
Bible in One Year: 2 Corinthians 10-13, Psalms 15-16
The characteristics of the habitation of the Lord attract our attention because of the blessings awaiting us there. The qualification of those who can be part of the habitation of the Lord is worthy of note. Our memory verse says:
“If thou wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.” – Job 8:6
The habitation of the Lord is the place where God blesses His people with diverse kinds of blessings – spiritual, physical and material. Only the pure and upright can enjoy the blessings of God’s habitation, one of which is security.
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” – Psalms 91:1
The issue of holiness is not a subject of debate for those who know that they stand to gain by living holy. If you live holy, you live holy for yourself as the Lord watches over the righteous (Psalms 5:12). Also, there is promotion for those who abide in the habitation of the Lord (Hebrews 1:9). Moreover, the Bible says;
“1 LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? 2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.” – Psalms 15:1-2
In other words, the habitation of the Lord is not an “all comers” affair, even though whoever chooses to be there can be there if the fellow is ready to pay the price. The price of living holy is what those who want to abide in the habitation of the Lord must pay. Our text for today emphasises the necessity of righteousness vis-a-vis divine protection:
“10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. 11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.” – Psalms 97:10-11
Nobody is careless about his precious possession. Anybody who chooses to live a consecrated life will enjoy divine protection. Such are precious stones in the sight of the Lord. The Lord watches over His heritage, i.e. His saints. This is why Psalms 125:3 says:
“For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.”
He keeps them under His protection and ensures no evil befalls them. My prayer is that you will live under the watchful eyes of the Almighty.
Action Point: Search the scripture and find out all you must do to be able to abide in the habitation of the Lord.
