KEY SCRIPTURE: 2 Samuel 22:21. “The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me”.
The opening scripture reveals God our father as the one who rewards holiness and by the cleanness of a man’s hands he would be recompensed. We continue with the rewards of Holiness.
8.The heart of the righteous shall never reproach him or her. Job 27:6.
“My righteousness, I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live”. Job says he would maintain his holiness and his heart will never accuse him. The heart which is the seat of your conscience would not accuse you so long as iniquity is not found in you. The man with a clean heart has nothing to hide and has no fears of any future accusations.
9.The righteous God loves righteousness. Psalms 11:7
“For the righteous LORD loves righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright”. This statement means God has a special affection towards the righteous man. This man has a special audience with the Lord. It may seem, certain men are favorites of God because of the way He responds to them. . He attends to them with outstanding passion. . The bases of this is the heart that seeks to always please the father. The father testified about the Son that, my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased. It was his uprightness that endeared the Father towards Him that way.
10.The holy man shall dwell with the Lord on His holy hill. Psalms 15:1 & 2
“A Psalm of David. LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. The upright in heart with clean hands shall abide in the holy hill of the Lord. The holy hill of the Lord is a symbol of authority and power. It is a place of God’s glory. You would surely walk in power, authority and manifest God’s glory as lead a life of holiness. Remember that one of the symbols of holiness is beauty which is synonymous to glory.
11.The holy man shall receive the blessings from the Lord. Psalms 24:4&25
“He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation” It is a great blessing to keep yourself clean from all wrong ways and keep a clean heart’. Every child of God is blessed with all blessings in the heavenly places, yet the man with clean hands and an upright heart experiences the manifestation of God’s blessings in his life
12.Your holiness will cause you to shine and God shall judge all the enemies that fight against you. Psalms 37:6
“And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday”. Your righteousness is your glory. Nothing can keep you in the dark so long as you lead an upright life of holiness. The scripture also said your enemies shall be judged by the Lord. Certain hindrances must be dealt with for your light to break forth
Dear child of God, choose the way of holiness, it is the path to reigning in this life. You can be sure of this fact Satan may find opportunity to dwell around a man under so many conditions, but can never live in the life of a holy man.
I walk the path of the upright. My hands are always clean from all wrong. My heart is filled with light. I have power and authority. I have true dominion in this life in Jesus name
Psalms 37:7—9. “Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
