The people will declare, "The LORD is the source of all my righteousness and strength." And all who were angry with him will come to him and be ashamed. Isa 45:24 NLT
When you find yourself failing, in the midst of reoccurring sin; can you say this and believe it?I Am The Righteousness of God in Christ!If you cannot say it and believe it when you have just sinned, you do not believe you are saved by grace alone through faith EPH 2:8-9. You still think it is somewhat about you and your actions.In opposition to what the Bible teaches, you are sin conscious instead of righteousness conscious, Jesus conscious. This grieves the Holy Spirit because he convicts believers of their righteousness HERE. The enemy has deceived you into looking at yourself instead of the perfection of Jesus, who paid for all of your sins once and for all. Think about it. If we are focused on our sins, we do not really believe they have been forgiven. We are saying what Jesus did was not enough to wash me clean. If you want to stop sinning and what you have done to date has not worked, try Gods way instead. All the time and especially the next time you fail, in the midst of your sin, make this your declaration:I Am The Righteousness of God in Christ!The enemy will try and stop you, trying to get you to look at yourself and away from Jesus. Don't let him! Keep your focus on the spotless lamb that took your place and exchanged your sinfulness for His righteousness. Stating this firmly when the enemy and every religious bone in your body try to fight you, will transform you by faith into the image of Christ. It lets God know you really believe it is all about Jesus. It lets satan know you really believe God and slams the door shut on his attacks. Who can condemn those who God has justified? It lets you know that God's love for you is not dependent on your actions. He sees you in the perfection of Jesus.
It takes little or no faith to declare our righteousness in Christ when we are doing everything right. On the other hand, it takes sound and sincere faith to declare it when we fail. God wants us to live from faith to faith, walking in faith even when we fail.
I guarantee that if you do this, transforming your core belief, all the false beliefs that have been built upon this false core belief will fall away too. You will reign over sin instead of sin reigning over you. This is the way to the freedom Jesus died to give you my friend. Say it now by faith, keeping it constantly on your mind and lips until you really believe it: I Am The Righteousness of God in Christ!
Once you believe it Peace and Joy along with everything else you seek will follow.
