Moments of Faith Daily Devotional 24 March, by Prophet Frank Udoh

Title: Righteousness: The Pathway to God’s Presence.

Scripture Reading: Matthew 5:6 (NIV)

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”



In a world where morality seems to be shifting, the concept of righteousness remains a timeless beacon of truth. As believers, we are called to pursue righteousness, not as a mere virtue, but as a lifestyle that aligns us with the heart of God. In this devotional, let’s explore the profound significance of righteousness and its role in drawing us closer to the presence of God.



Reflect on the words of Jesus in Matthew 5:6, where He declares that those who hunger and thirst for righteousness will be filled. Righteousness is not merely an outward behavior but a deep longing of the heart—an earnest desire to walk in alignment with God’s will and character.

Consider the significance of righteousness in your own life. Are there areas where you’ve compromised your moral integrity or neglected to pursue God’s standards? Take a moment to confess any areas of unrighteousness and ask God to renew your hunger for His righteousness.

As you meditate on the concept of righteousness, remember that it is not something we can attain through our own efforts but is imputed to us through faith in Christ. It is His righteousness that covers us and empowers us to live holy and upright lives.



Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of righteousness through Christ Jesus. Help us to hunger and thirst for Your righteousness, and to walk in obedience to Your word. May Your presence be our greatest desire, and may we reflect Your righteousness to a world in need. In Jesus’ name, amen.
