You Are Righteous
…not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith. Philippians 3:9
Kenneth Copeland Devotional 5th January 2023 MESSAGE
I don’t care how badly you may have messed things up yesterday or how many mistakes you have made, I want you to begin this day knowing you are righteous! Not because of anything you’ve done but because you’ve received, by faith in Jesus, the very righteousness of God.
Just look at the kinds of benefits the Word of God says that righteousness will bring:
“The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree” (Psalm 92:12).
“When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth” (Proverbs 11:10).
“The seed of the righteous shall be delivered” (Proverbs 11:21).
“For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers” (1 Peter 3:12).
“For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield” (Psalms 5:12).
“The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles” (Psalms 34:17).
“I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread” (Psalms 37:25).
“The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever” (Psalms 37:29).
“The Lord loveth the righteous” (Psalms 146:8).
Don’t let the devil rob you of even one of these blessings by telling you you’re unworthy of them. Run him off. Shout out loud, “I am the righteousness of God!” Then step out in faith and enjoy the privileges God has prepared for you!

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
