Matthew 5:6 (NIV)
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
To be righteous is to walk blameless before God. This process is possible through obedience to God’s word and this requires a desperate longing within your soul, spirit and body. There’s an element of the divine (Jesus Christ) which enables us to live by God’s standards. It is God’s will that you succeed and be prosperous so he will give you whatever you need including the ability to live and walk in his righteousness. Anything you desire and thirst for the Lord will give you. Desire greatly the riches and gifts of heaven.
Bless me O Lord and fill me up with the wisdom to learn how to be righteous. I thirst and hunger for your word. My righteousness means nothing without your grace. In Jesus' name I pray.
