| I hope you had a stellar weekend! It’s that time of year here where the leaves are turning those beautiful shades of gold, red, and brown. Love it!
“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in your sight, O, Lord, my Rock (Strength) and my Redeemer.” Ps 19:14
We want the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts to be acceptable in the sight of God. But what is that?
What are those words and meditations that God finds acceptable?
Here I’ll choose one for you today … Next time you find yourself worrying about something you have said or done, or something you failed to say or do, and you are now worried about the consequences of that – meditate on this truth:
you are the righteousness of God in Christ.
Do not be tempted to think of this in only doctrinal terms… this is real!
Being His righteousness means that you are filled with everything that is deemed right by God. Indeed, it is WHO YOU ARE!
You have the right heart, the right thoughts, the right solutions, the right wisdom, the right attitude, the right power, the right authority to use that power, the right creativity…. need I go on?
Because of Christ, it is all there within you. Meditating on this truth and speaking it out loud, will RELEASE it into your mind, your heart, and in your circumstances. Faith will rise. You will find the right and favorable outcome to the thing you are concerned about. If you need to change your heart and mind about something, you will know that and doing it will come easier. But don’t dwell in that position! Move on.
Worry will only cloud your judgment and confuse your efforts. This kind of worry also causes us to doubt ourselves and that makes us feel insecure and unstable.
By declaring that you are God’s righteousness, you will put the devil on notice that you can not be accused and condemned because you are all right with God and He is all right with you!
And if God is for you, who can be against you! Being His righteousness entitles you to all kinds of benefits, not the least of which is the authority to use His power.
So, rather than use the power He has given you to worry, use it for good. Meditate on life giving thoughts and speak life giving words.
If you would write and tell me what you are going to meditate and speak on this week, I would love it! If you want me to hold you accountable, let me know. I will be happy to do so!
