But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.”
Whatever you may have been told about God, this verse makes it plain: no one will qualify for God’s favor based on their own efforts.
Most church people have been taught to come to God based on whatever they have done, good or bad. Yet as soon as you do that you are under the curse that is rooted in self effort.
God went to great lengths to redeem us from the curse attached to operating by a list of do’s and don’ts that made us jump through hoops to be blessed. He bought us out of that place totally and utterly. There is no one else who has any kind of stake in our lives, because Jesus paid the full price for us.
The whole purpose of that redemption was so that we could live every day in the blessing. Wherever we fall short, it doesn’t alter a thing. We still qualify since it isn’t even us that is paying the price – Jesus already did. Wow!
It is hard to abandon the conviction that you have to earn good things. But the blessing will cause you to walk into promotion and increase without working for it. Just because of your decision to BELIEVE that God is THAT GOOD!
I am asking you to disregard even your own experience to date. Although certain things may be available to you, unless you think rightly about them, you cannot access them.
Have you ever felt that when you needed God the most He was silent? You wanted to cry, “God, where are you?”
Yet this thinking and behavior is part of the Old Covenant. God is not held back from us even by our own foolishness.
You can say to God at those moments, “I don’t have to feel you to know you are with me. your Word says you never leave me nor forsake me. I know that you haven’t left.” This is an example of learning to think rightly about your situation, because God responds to our faith, not to our desperation and crying about how wretched we are!
Every day is blessing day for us. We are not clogging up the system regardless of our issues.
Let every consciousness of the curse leave. Every plan and scheme of the devil over your life is cancelled. It is time for a BLESSING EXPLOSION!
