            The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence for ever (Isaiah 32:17).
            Bible says, God will keep in perfect peace those who trust in Him and whose mind is stead fast in Him (Isaiah 26:3). This peace comes through the righteousness, the righteousness of Jesus Christ. We may think that trusting God gives us healing, deliverance etc. But God is planning beyond what we are thinking of God, God wants to give us peace, His own peace. Jesus said, peace I give to you, my peace I give to you (John 14:27). This peace is the work of the righteousness. And there is an assurance that God is giving us in his righteousness, which stands forever.
            Psalmist says, “ The righteousness and the peace they kiss each other” (Psalm 85:10). Yes, they know each other for peace is the work of righteousness. There are three products of righteousness; namely they are Peace, Quietness and Confidence. To have all these three we should get the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Apostle Paul says that, the Kingdom of God is not just eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit (Romans 14:17). All these will come only from God, we can do nothing to get all these. If we feel that we can have peace without God, we deceive ourselves, for there is no peace without God. These all are the products of The Righteousness and that righteousness is only of God.
            When we really have the confidence that our sins are forgiven by the blood of Jesus, and righteousness by faith, we will find the true happiness. Then Joy flows naturally in our life, the peace comes to us without putting any effort and the confidence is present in our life. We should remember that the righteousness only flows through Christ, when we trust in him, then the work of righteousness we will have in our life.
            GOD BLESS YOU
