"…and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. "
It’s wonderful how, this verse reminds of the true definition of faith in Hebrews 11:1 which says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Faith is the quiet, confident assurance of what we hope for and the reality of things yet unseen.
That’s the reason Jesus said, “…If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you” (Matthew 17:20). As a Church if we understand this, we will to do mighty things for God!
The fruit and effect of righteousness is faith; A Faith which can move colossal mountain; with which you affirm that all things are possible unto you, living without fears, worries, conflicts, and agitations. Isaiah 54:14 says, “In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.” When you’re established by God in His righteousness, you become unshakable and immovable (1 Corinthians 15:58).
In the verse above which is Isaiah 54:14, the word “for” means because or whenever. In other words, you shall be far from oppression because you shall not fear. Why will you not fear? Because the fruit effect of righteousness has produced quietness, assurance, and confidence in you forever; it has secured you completely in Christ.
You’re no longer in the arena of those who’re oppressed by circumstances, situations of life, demon spirits; you’re not under the oppression of the enemy. Rather, you’re in charge and in control. In our order to live Christ like life, Every Believer should walk in the consciousness of His righteousness. To walk in the consciousness of God’s righteousness is to walk in glory, dominion, and the strength of God.
