The Daily Fountain Devotional of the Church Of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) 9 June 2024 – Speak Of God’s Righteousness Today

TOPIC: Speak Of God’s Righteousness Today

READ: Psalm 71: 16-24 (NKJV)

  1. I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD; I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only.
  2. O God, You have taught me from my youth; And to this [day] I declare Your wondrous works.
  3. Now also when [I am] old and grayheaded, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to [this] generation, Your power to everyone [who] is to come.
  4. Also Your righteousness, O God, [is] very high, You who have done great things; O God, who [is] like You?
  5. [You,] who have shown me great and severe troubles, Shall revive me again, And bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
  6. You shall increase my greatness, And comfort me on every side.
  7. Also with the lute I will praise you — [And] Your faithfulness, O my God! To You I will sing with the harp, O Holy One of Israel.
  8. My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing to You, And my soul, which You have redeemed.
  9. My tongue also shall talk of Your righteousness all the day long; For they are confounded, For they are brought to shame Who seek my hurt.


Speaking about God’s faithfulness and declaring it is an important aspect of our Christian heritage. We must not stop speaking about the love of God that has led us to this height of beauty today. The passage for our consideration says “I will go in the strength of the Lord God: I will make mention of your righteousness, even of yours only. O God you have taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared your wondrous works”(vv.16&17). It is important to declare what we have experienced in God at all times. This is otherwise known as witnessing – telling others about the grace that enlisted us in the membership of God’s family (1 John 1: 1), and His care for us every day.

Beloved, as you go in the strength of the Lord to God’s sanctuary today and also into a new week, make mention of the love of God; speak about the righteousness of the Most High. God needs you to testify to His goodness and faithfulness. By so doing, you will encourage and show others the way of God.

It is your duty to speak of the faithfulness of God that led you thus far. Speak of the great things God has done (v.19). Do not withhold His truth; do not conceal His word. Speak as God’s child. Make mention of His love to someone today and this week (1 John 1: 1).

PRAYER: Lord, please give me the courage to share the message of Your love with people around me
