5 Moses writes about the righteousness that comes from the Law: The person who does these things will live by them. 6 But the righteousness that comes from faith talks like this: Don’t say in your heart, “Who will go up into heaven?” (that is, to bring Christ down) 7 or “Who will go down into the region below?” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). 8 But what does it say? The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart (that is, the message of faith that we preach). 9 Because if you confess with your mouth “Jesus is Lord” and in your heart you have faith that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 Trusting with the heart leads to righteousness, and confessing with the mouth leads to salvation. 11 The scripture says, All who have faith in him won’t be put to shame. 12 There is no distinction between Jew and Greek, because the same Lord is Lord of all, who gives richly to all who call on him. 13 All who call on the Lord’s name will be saved. (Romans 10:5-13, CEB)
Trusting with the heart leads to righteousness.
You see are we told things everyday, and some you believe and some you don’t and some you take to heart. And that is where the promises of God should reside in your life. Because God stepped off the throne and came to dwell with us. God cam as a baby in a manger and lived a life to see our fear, to see our anxiety, to see the evil we combat every day.
God left the throne and was born in human flesh and lived among us to show us love and how to vanquish fear.
So hold God’s promises in your heart and know them to be true. For faith/trust in the heart leads to righteousness, and righteousness vanquishes fear and hope over comes evil and love will rule the world!
So live in the hope that overcomes evil and fear and show God’s love to the world.
