"The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever." NIV
"And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever." KJV
It is important to know the meaning of righteousness. It is to possess all good qualities in perfection and perfect balance. When we think about that, we can't help but be filled with joy, peace, and hope. How blessed we are to have a merciful and gracious God who allows us to wear His righteousness. Without that, where would we be?
Heavenly Father, we can't praise You enough for the boundless love and grace You so freely give us. We ask that You will keep us wrapped in Your righteousness so we will bring glory to You and know Your peace. In Jesus' name, Amen.
