When you see the Cross, don’t just see your sin crucified in it. SEE YOUR VALUE IN IT!
Sometimes we take our lives for granted. I believe this happens when we don’t see how VALUABLE we are in the eyes of God. When we dig into the Word that even the number of hairs on our head He knows, surely He doesn’t miss a thing in us. That’s being awakened into RIGHTEOUSNESS!
When we’re late for our appointments and we are disappointed, BE OF GOOD CHEER, for somewhere along the way, the mysteries of God’s protection upon us are at work. That’s being awakened into RIGHTEOUSNESS!
When we are anxious for a thing or two and realize that the PEACE of God that surpasses all understanding will guard our hearts and minds in Christ, that’s being awakened into RIGHTEOUSNESS!
When we do something that we consciously know we missed it, stay hopeful for our God sees us through the Blood of Jesus. Acknowledge it and repent … that means change the way you think of about it that eventually changes our actions that will sooner or later align to God’s thoughts and ways! That’s being awakened into RIGHTEOUSNESS!
When we get tired, weary and sick, run into His Presence and be refreshed. Jesus didn’t die for nothing. He took all our sickness upon Himself that when His body was judged by the wrath of God, pierced, broken and beaten, He made us strong in Him. He made us healthy and whole in Him. That’s being awakened into RIGHTEOUSNESS!
Shame and condemnation put us into having a fearful heart. But when Jesus came and dealt with all our shame, guilt and condemnation and demonstrated His perfect love by dying at the Cross for us casting away all our fears, confidence rises up within us that we can now come boldly into His throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace in time of need. That’s being awakened into RIGHTEOUSNESS!
Jesus suffered, died and rose again! He suffered for our sake! He died for our sake! He rose again for our sake that even death has lost it’s sting! He shed His Blood for you and me that we get awakened to PURITY and CLEANNESS so that the PRESENCE and the POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT can live inside of us to empower us to live a VICTORIOUS LIFE! It’s NOT by might, nor by power but by the Spirit of God! That is being awakened to RIGHTEOUSNESS!
Our right standing with God opens ourselves up to Him making things right in our lives!
When you are Righteousness-Conscious, then you are living in the Kingdom of God!
“For the Kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but RIGHTEOUSNESS and PEACE and JOY in the HOLY SPIRIT.” Romans 14:17
