The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever.
This verse reassures me so. Sometimes my faith is not as strong as I would like. I worry about too many things. This verse reminds me of the times I make the right decision, and do the right thing. I know God is pleased at those times, and I have an assurance in my heart that can only come from the Holy Spirit. Communication with God is difficult for me sometimes, but I am so thankful for the times it is loud and clear.
Holy Father, help me to live a righteous life, and to make good, Godly decisions. When I live a righteous life, you give me assurance. I am thankful. Amen
