Today I believe the Lord wants to remind His people of the absolute sufficiency of the finished work of Christ. You do not have to live with guilt or condemnation or shame because, on the cross, Jesus took it all. He paid for it all completely.
Today you stand before God completely righteous, pure and holy. Nothing can ever change this or separate you from his love. You are a new creation, your spirit has been reborn, the power of the resurrected King resides within you.
Don't ever let the enemy deceive you into believing that you are anything less than God says you are. He tries to forfeit your destiny by attacking your identity.
It doesn't matter what you've done, what others say about you - God's declaration over your life is the only Truth that matters. You are loved, chosen, called, forgiven, free, secure, blessed and empowered. Walk confidently in the full authority of your Christ-purchased identity as a son/daughter of the King.
Ephesians 1:3-8 NLT
“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.”
Ephesians 3:16-21 NLT
“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.”
