Psalm 37: Part 13 - The Righteous

Psalms-37--Part-13I literally just woke up. It's after 4pm, I'm hungry and need to get up, but the sound of my little one's coughing led me to pray. 

'Father, you said that healing was for the children. He's coughing. So Lord, I ask that healing be manifested in him now. Why? Because I'm righteous. And because I am righteous, then until my children know on their own, they are righteous. So because we are righteous, he is healed.  In Jesus name. Amen. '

One may ask why do I point out that I am righteous and because I am righteous I deserve this. Well, that an instruction from God: to remind and prove him. 

Remind Me [of your merits with a thorough report], let us plead and argue our case together; State your position, that you may be proved right.  Isaiah‬ ‭43:26‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.  Malachi‬ ‭3:10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

In these two verses are two very direct instructions: remind God of what you have done and plead your case...litigate if you will.  Throughout the Word, we are shown that there are indeed Courts of Heaven and the devour is there trying to use everything against us!   So state your case.   

Prove me... He says in Malachi.  Follow the instructions and see won't He do just what He said.  Each time we are to prove a spiritual law or principle, we must follow all the steps that come with it. If you haven't figured it out yet, I love spiritual science experiments. 

Lord, you said the if I...then you would do....

Doesn't these often daily reminders remind YOU of what he said?  It gives you extra ammo to use against your thoughts when negative thoughts began to bombard your mind

So as I lie here, thinking about my case, this lead me to recall our next lesson. This tiny portion of Psalm 37 has rang out in my ears many times in a loud voice.  It's a song I heard so many times during my childhood. Sang by Janet Paschal, her voice is booming even now!  (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=h5aBuiJuRJk)

I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed. Psalms‬ ‭37:25-26‬ ‭KJV‬‬

But here I am praying. Pleading my case.  I am righteous. And because I am righteous, I shall have what I ask: healing to manifest because it's part of the bread for children. 

Let's start with righteousness briefly. Being righteous means being in good standing with God. You've asked. You've begged. You've pleaded. You've stated your case.  But the jail cell door has seemingly been shut on you. Why didn't your request manifest. Well it wasn't God. 

Did you prove His word. Remind Him of his promises. Follow the entire equation?  This equation includes a self-check: am I righteous??

I've been hearing lately that we cannot lose our righteousness because:

For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.  II Corinthians‬ ‭5:21‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

But where there is sin, He cannot be!  So always do a self-check and remain in Him. 

Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.  II Corinthians‬ ‭3:17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Galatians‬ ‭4:7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

On to the bread. In your own time, read and study Matthew 15:21-28. Basically a woman from a people who worshiped idols came for healing for here daughter. 

But He answered and said, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.”  Matthew‬ ‭15:26‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

The children's bread?!?! Little dogs?!?!  Well the dogs here refer to the people the woman came from but what is this bread Jesus refers to?!?!  Well, the woman wanted healing for her daughter and Jesus told her it's not good to take children's bread (what belongs to the children of God) and throw it to the dogs (dang that's harsh!). So healing is for the children of God. 

Because I am righteous, and my seed will not have to beg for healing!  My baby will be two soon, not only do I keep him in the Lord, but at his age, he is definitely a child of God. Healing is for him. My seed will never have to beg for bread!  

The second part of the 'bite' is there. You can read it at your leisure and see what revelation you can get from it. It is verse 25 that I focus on. But if we must, my seed will be blessed with every spiritual blessing (bread; Ephesians 1:3-4) because I am merciful and deal graciously. 

With love,
Keiyia JOYet George

  • I love your article. It is so important to know who we are. I believe that when we do not that we take anything. I enjoyed how you explained being the righteousness of God and how you claim it for your family therefore there is no need to beg. Our children don't have to beg for bread. Thank you for this wonderful article.

    • @Danyel: Most of our problems stem from the fact that we aren't sure who we are. We become who people think we are rather than who God says we are. Being righteous is who He says all that believe and live according to His word are. Once this is known, then we understand that there is no 'bread' he'd keep from us!
