Righteousness is that standard that pleases
God. You and I are righteous when our actions seek
to conform to the truth. So coming out of the truth, we’re told to
have on our hearts righteousness, that is, a set of actions that are implementing what
God has revealed to be true. When we act right based on the truth, we protect
our heart because the enemy is after the heart. I mean, if you do a blow to the heart, that’s
death. Why? Because the heart is the pump, it pumps blood
throughout our body, our physical heart. Well, what the physical heart is to the bloodstream,
that brings oxygen and life to the body, our spiritual heart is the pump that brings the
life of God throughout the soul because we’re living in right relationship with him. That is, we’re seeking to please him with
our decision making. When the truth has been informed, and then
we seek to please God in our actions based on that truth, well then we are guarding our
hearts and the pump can keep pumping the guidance of God, the will of God, the presence of God,
the power of God into the life source of every believer’s soul. Cause remember, the body only does what the
soul dictates to it, so you need good pump pumping the right nutrients through the spiritual
bloodstream by the Holy Spirit into the life of the believer so that our souls our whole
so that our bodies function differently. The breastplate of righteousness is critical
because demons are drawn to unrighteousness. So when unrighteousness prevails in our lives,
we not only have the problem with the issue, we have the problem with the rodents, the
demonic infestation that has come because of that issue that they’ve been drawn to. Whenever you see a stagnant water, you’ll
draw mosquitoes. Wherever you see garbage, you’ll draw roaches. And now you’ve got two problems: you’ve got
the stagnant water or the garbage and what they drew to them. So that makes it a double problem you have
to overcome. Not only the problem itself, but the infestation
of evil that had been drawn to it. Guard your heart. Act on the truth. Clean up the environment by the Spirit. So that God’s victory can be yours.
