This is a word that I brought at The Well on Dec 10th. I hope it will bless and encourage you!!

What does it mean to be the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus? It simply means that when God looks at us, He sees us through Jesus Christ and His finished work of the cross. We are completely accepted by God and are clothed with Jesus robes of righteousness.

What are some things that we can expect from God when we choose to believe and accept His son, Jesus? The Word says, “WE ARE the righteousness of God IN Christ.” 2 Corinthians 5:21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Let’s take a look at a few of those promises in Proverbs 10.
V 3 The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry…
That any any lack of needful or desirable elements.

V6 Blessings crown the head of the righteous…
What struck me so profoundly here, is that we are NOT crowned with curses but BLESSING!! Blessing simply means that we are ALREADY granted happiness, health and prosperity; endowed with a talent, beauty and protected against evil or harm.

V7 The memory of the righteous will be a blessing…
How often do we relish the memory of those who have walked with God? The memory our lives are recorded in Heaven forever because our names are written in the Lambs book of life FOREVER.

V11 The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life..
V20 The tongue of the righteous is choice silver…
V21 The lips of the righteous nourish many….
V31 The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom..
V32 The lips of the righteous know what is fitting…
When we think about the LIVING God abiding within us, He is our reservoir, supply chamber, principal source and origin of ALL life. We have the power to release His life, every time we pray, speak, or sing!!

V16 The wages of the righteous bring them life…
V22 The blessing of the Lord brings wealth and He adds no trouble to it.
V24 What the righteous desire will be granted.
The recompense, return, and yield of all our labors, brings prosperity that is valuable and abundant. There is no lack in the Kingdom of God.

V25 The righteous stand firm forever…
That simply means, through HIS strength, we are not soft or yielding when pressed; we are settled and securely fixed in His grace. We are steady, steadfast and unwavering in His love.

V28 The prospect of the righteous is joy…
Joy is the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying that brings pleasure or elation. That’s because our hope and expectation is in the Lord who delivers our advancement and success. We can expect and anticipate ONLY good things that He has in store for us.

V29 The way of the Lord is a refuge for the righteous…
God’s characteristic and habitual manner is to ALWAYS protect and guide us in the concerns of our life. He is ALWAYS with us. He will NEVER forsake us.

V30 The righteous will never be uprooted…
God will not remove violently or tear you away from the place where you have been fixed, planted and deeply established. If He desires to reestablish you in another place, His grace, peace and provision will be upon it.

This is the truth of the living Word of God. Read, reread and let the transforming power of His truth revolutionize your life….from the inside out.

God bless you all!

    Loved your version of “Amazing Love” during your rehearsal. I would have thrown a four bar drum solo in. I’m not sure if I can convince the rest of our worship band to start doing the song this way lol. God bless and keep up the good work.

    • Glad you could watch the fun at rehearsal… we probably won’t ever do it like that. 🙂 … well, maybe. Blessings, Carl & Leann

  2. Greetings from the Philippines, Carl and Leann!

    You guys are a great blessing to the Church when it comes to worshiping Jesus.
    You’ve been our inspiration since the early times of Don Moen and Ron Kennoly.
    I was just looking for commentaries about being the righteousness of God in Christ, then i got to your blog.

    Just want to take this opportunity to thank you for shining your light to the world.

  3. Thank you for posting this. This blessed me. I will keep reading the Bible verses, meditate on them and confess them over my life.

  4. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering
    problems with your blog. It appears as if some of the written text on your
    content are running off the screen. Can someone else please
    comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This might be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Many thanks

    • So sorry about that… we’re not “tech savy” here, but agree that it would be good to try a different server… Safari; Chrome; Firefox are our top choices. Let us know if it works better in a different platform. Blessings, Carl & Leann.

    Amen!!!
