TREM Devotional – Righteous Forever

Wisdom For The Day Devotional 21 December 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Righteous Forever


TOPIC: Righteous Forever (TREM Devotional 21 December 2022)

“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21 (KJV)


Righteousness is having right standing with God. It is being always right before God. It is standing before God as if Sin does not exist. It is standing before God without any sense of Sin, fear inferiority, accusation guilt, condemnation, or judgement.

Righteousness goes farther; it is standing on an equality with God knowing that He will never see any spot in you. Can you imagine that? What Jesus did on the cross for you brings you to the point where you can stand inequality because when God looks at you, He does not see you, He sees Jesus and the finished work on Calvary. So you can enjoy His goodness as your heritage.

Righteousness is standing before God with a sense of having been discharged, acquitted, case closed, and no appeal for any wrongdoing. Righteousness is not right doing. It is being right (or right -being). And knowing that it is who you are, will cause you to do right. Righteous people do right.

You became righteous the moment you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Romans 1:16-17, Romans 10:9-10. You never worked for it. It is a gift and will never be taken away from you even if you do wrong. 2 Corinthians 5:21- ‘’ For He hath Made Him to be Sin for us, who knew no Sin that we might be Made the righteousness of God in Him.’’

When you walk in the reality of your righteousness you will reign in life (Romans 5:17). When you lose that mentality of your righteousness, you will become fearful of God and Satan and remain in bondage forever. You are forever Righteous. “Awake to Righteousness and Sin not.”

As you celebrate Jesus in this season, celebrate Him with a clear understanding of all He did just for you. When you understand what He did, you will celebrate His birth, not like another holiday but in awe of all that His coming has made available to us.

The peace of God which passes all understanding keeps my heart and my mind through Christ Jesus and my thoughts are on things which are good and pure and perfect and lovely and of good report. I have been crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ lives in me and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. (Philippians 4:7-8, Galatians 2:20; Romans 8:2)

The Lord will comfort me in all sides, He will make my wilderness to blossom and my desert shall be like the garden of the Lord, joy, peace and gladness shall continually be in my house. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord will be a shield to me and my entire family (Isa 51: 3, Psalm 125:2)

Every day and in every way I am getting better: spiritually, physically, financially, mentally, morally, and in all my endeavours.

I am called for a purpose. I will fulfill this purpose and I will arrive at God’s ordained destiny for my life. Nothing will cut me short. I will make a formidable impact in my world for the Kingdom.
