From the Kitchen Table
Victorious Living Day 35
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Romans 5:1-5
We’ve been justified by faith! We’ve been made just because we’ve become convinced in the work, words and will of God. We now live convinced in and convicted by God and His word through Jesus. Convinced & convicted, we hold to God and His word as absolute truth and now we live in His peace, His promises, His power, His perspective, sharing His personal qualities. That’s how deeply we are convinced and how powerfully we are convicted by His word, work, and will. Our spirit lives by faith, what it believes to be true, not what we feel about truth. Our spirit operates in what it believes to be true and if what we believe isn’t true, it won’t be trusted. It’s a principle in life that we can only trust in what we believe in. This all begins in our spirit and it happens through what we hear to be true. Let’s live today in what God has said so that we can live today in what God has done. It is our peace and prosperity.
