KEY SCRIPTURE: Galatians 1:4 KJV” Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:”
JOB, the servant of God, expressed his experience by writing that, man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. (Job 14:1). Trouble has become the daily experience of men. God shows us His answer in His word. Trouble seem to drawn mankind and even some Christians because most of them treat the Bible as an ordinary book. Your first step to lead a life of victory over troubles is to accept the Bible as inspired by the Spirit of God. Whatever it says is truth and God’s breathe and life is in His word. Approach it as a child would jump from a height into its Father’s hands.
God through Christ has given us answers to these many troubles. Our key scripture says our Lord Jesus gave himself that He might deliver us from this evil world. This is the grace of God answering man’s troubles. The Lord Jesus was judged in our place. Because of Him, God does not count the sins of any sinner against him. (2nd Corinth 5:19) When a sinner accepts that his sins has been washed away, and confesses that Jesus is Lord of his life he is instantly saved. The way out of trouble by grace is to believe and CONFESS in sincerity that what Jesus did is true and therefore yours.
IF a Christian finds himself in an uncontrollable sinful lifestyle, he must not agree with what the enemy may be doing by saying, ‘Satan has bound me’. He must keep declaring, “I’m the righteousness of GOD”. When you agree with what the adversary is doing through your words, it would be established.
You say in agreement with God’s word that you are the righteousness of God.
2 Corinth 5:21 KJV” 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. You are presently the righteousness of God. It is not tomorrow, not when Christ comes, or when you die to go to heaven. If you admit you are a sinner, then you are not acknowledging the provision of grace. If you fall a hundred times, say you are the righteousness of God hundred times and believe it. The power of the enemy would be broken. Faith is taking a stand with what God says. Faith is calling those things which be not as though they were. (Rom 4:17) Faith is that which overcomes the world (1 John 5:4). By faith you use the provision of grace to answer the questions of wrong habits and sinful ways.
Thanks be to God who has given me His Son as an exchange for my sinfulness. I am indeed the righteousness of God, no matter what comes my way, it can’t change that. I am what Jesus sacrifice brought to me.
