But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  Matthew 6:33 King  James Version

His righteousness.  His righteousness.  His righteousness.  Take a moment to really absorb that.  It’s His righteousness.  We have been made the righteous of God of “in Christ Jesus.”  The righteousness that we have, and more accurately that we have been made is really His righteousness.

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 King James Version

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:  I Corinthians 1:30 King James Version

Righteousness is so AWESOME.  Why?  Because it has done so many things and it is sitting there waiting to be received by ALL men and women everywhere.  The main thing about righteousness is that Jesus put us  back in right standing with God the Father.  The restoration of our relationship with The Father is the primary reason for righteousness and Jesus being crucified and resurrected.  His sufferings and beatings paid the price necessary for us to have peace with God and the restoration of all things to us His adopted children.  The Word of God declares that with Jesus we have been given all things.

He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Roman 8:32 King James Version

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33 King James Version

For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.  Romans 14:17  King James Version

So when we seek first the Kingdom of God which is righteousness, peace (or Shalom) and joy in the Holy Ghost AND understand that it is His Righteousness which is a gift, we then walk in the complete and total victory that Jesus has already won for us at the Cross.

Take a look at all the things righteousness does in the book of Proverbs.

Proverbs 10:2  Righteousness delivereth from death.

Proverbs 10:16 The labour of the righteous tendeth to life:

Proverbs 10:21 The lips of the righteous feed many:

Proverbs 10:24 The desire of the righteous shall be granted.

Proverbs 10:25 The righteous is an everlasting foundation.

Proverbs 10:28 The hope of the righteous shall be gladness:

Proverbs 10:30 The righteous shall never be removed: 

Proverbs 10:32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable:

Proverbs 11:4 Righteousness delivereth from death.

Proverbs 11:5 The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way.

Proverbs 11:6 The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them.

Proverbs 11:8 The righteous is delivered out of trouble.

Proverbs 11:23 The desire of the righteous is only good.

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life.

Proverbs 11:31 Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth.

You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.  Because of Jesus and His righteousness given to you, your desire is granted.  You are delivered out of trouble.  You are delivered from death.  You will never be moved.  Your desire is only good.  You see all these benefits of the righteous and righteousness?  THEY ARE AWESOME!!!  It would do you well to study and know these because the truth that you KNOW is what makes you free.

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
