THE HOPE OF THE RIGHTEOUSNESS

Sis. Stella Dhinakaran
14 Feb
Search for a righteous living and to achieve this, get rid of all things both big and small which are abominable to Him. Yes! That is the righteous way! Then, the Lord will be our hope in all our difficult circumstances and make us glad and lead us wonderfully.
 
Are we not besieged by so many kinds of fears and worries that are unbearable in our day-to-day life in this world? Are we not struggling to overcome them? Yes! It is better, when in this state, if we choose the righteous ways that God loves and walk accordingly. But it will be impossible to walk in righteous ways if we become slaves to the world, the flesh and the devil. Therefore, let us seek the Lord with reverence and humility. “for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit”.( Romans 14:17).According to this verse, we have to clearly understand that the righteousness and the anointing of the Holy Spirit go together. So, it is necessary that we need to have the “thirst and desire” in our hearts to be filled by the Holy Spirit (Psalm 42:2).
In 1963, on this same day, the 14th of February, God filled me with His Holy Spirit, seeing my thirst for Him. I had some leisure time after finishing all my household work. I was alone and I knelt down in a room with the desire and thirst to praise the Lord. I started praising the Lord with thanksgiving and  I kept praising and thanking Him with my whole mind and whole heart. I usually pray in silence without making any noise. But that day, when I raised my voice in prayer, my husband Bro. Dhinakaran came in with much amazement from the other room. When he came to the spot where I was praying, he saw my face filled with the presence of God and found out that my heart was jubilant and happy. He knew at once that it was the reason why I was thanking the Lord with a loud voice. He then joined me in prayer. Then he was filled with the Spirit and he saw an angel standing beside me. That angel looked at my husband and said, “Place your hands on your wife and pray for her to be filled with the Holy Spirit.” He did likewise and as he placed His hands on me and prayed, I was completely filled with the anointing of the Holy Spirit along with the signs of speaking in new tongues.
 
Beloved, if you too ask with that same thirst and desire, the Lord who examines our hearts will likewise fill you too. To receive this hope and joy in your family, hold fast to the Lord Jesus Christ from this day onwards and trust Him with all your heart. If you do this, you too, will receive this divine joy in your life. “The hope of the righteous will be gladness” (Proverbs 10:28). Yes! As we put our trust in Jesus, the 'Hope of righteousness' we will also become righteous. We need to long for the presence of God that describes our hunger for righteousness. "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." (Matthew 5:6). When we invite Jesus into our hearts, He fills us with His Holy Spirit who will comfort us and show us the way to lead a righteous life.
Prayer:
Merciful Saviour! Deliver me from all evil and perils that are in this world. Give me the grace to walk in righteous ways. Through this, give me the grace to trust You at all times and receive joy in my life. In Your sweet name I pray, Amen.
