The reality of righteousness is definitely a key to victorious living, for the Word of God states in Romans 5:17 (AMP), "...those who receive God's overflowing grace and the free gift of righteousness reign as kings in life."

We are to reign in this life as kings instead of life reigning over us. We have been made the righteousness of God and because of this, we are guaranteed success.

Many people have said, "Well, I know that I am the righteousness of God, but I'm not successful." The problem here is that this person has never made a quality decision to win. As the pressures of the enemy come, they always give up and quit. You must realize this fact— failures are not God-made! If you follow God's instructions, you will win!

As you awake to your right-standing with God, then sin becomes a thing of the past. The greater the revelation of righteousness, the less sin occurs in your life. The word "sin" just simply means "to miss the mark." When you sin, you miss the mark for God's best in your life.

The sin most committed by Christians is not murder, adultery, or stealing, but compromise. So many miss the mark because they refuse to stand strong on the Word. When pressure comes, they look for an avenue to compromise.

Compromise usually occurs when you have done all to stand, and it appears that nothing is working. You should realize that at this point you have the best opportunity to lean hard on your right-standing with God. This is where you can excel and rise above the problems and difficult circumstances in your life.

I believe the following Scriptures will be most rewarding for you, if you'll begin to make them a daily confession. As you confess them, it will build a new awareness of your right-standing with God, and the fact that you don't have to be beaten any longer, for you are the uncompromisingly righteous!

Proverbs 10:3 (AMP) says, "The Lord will not allow the (uncompromisingly) righteous to famish..."

Proverbs 10:6 (AMP) says, "Blessings are upon the head of the (uncompromisingly) righteous."

Psalm 34:19 (AMP) says, "Many evils confront the (consistently) righteous; but the Lord delivers him out of them all."

Psalm 37:25 (AMP) says, "I have been young and now am old, yet have I not seen the (uncompromisingly) righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread."

Psalm 37:39 (AMP) says, "But the salvation of the (consistently) righteous is of the Lord; He is their refuge and secure stronghold in the time of trouble."

As you read these Scriptures, you will note that God intends for you to win. How? By taking an uncompromising stand on your rights as a child of God. God will back you!

Today's Scriptures: 1 Cor. 15:34; Eph. 6:10-16
