Welcome once again to “Abounding Grace”. We are busy with a study of the established heart and we have discussed that every believer owes it to himself to be established in “The Word of God”; we are to be established in “The Name of Jesus”; then we discussed what we are not to be established in, things like fear; sickness; a sin consciousnesses; lack or inability and all that Satan represents. To-day let us discuss being established in God’s righteousness.
2Cor.5:21. (Amp) For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness].
God has given His own Son; note the wording in the above scripture, so that in and through Him we might become the righteousness of God, what we ought to be. In Christ Jesus you and I are just as righteous as God is righteous. If this were not the case then we would not be able to fellowship Him, how can an inferior being fellowship with a superior being? In Christ Jesus you are on equal footing with the creator, we are in the same class as God the Father, if that were not so then neither is Jesus in His class, how could it be possible to be in Christ, an heir to the throne, seated with Him in heavenly places but be a sub species?
You must know who you are and what you are.
1John.3:2. (Amp) Beloved, we are [even here and] now God’s children; it is not yet disclosed (made clear) what we shall be [hereafter], but we know that when He comes and is manifested, we shall [as God's children] resemble and be like Him, for we shall see Him just as He [really] is.
You must know who’s backing you up; who’s protecting you.
Phil.2:13. (Amp) [Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.
No one can touch a branch without hurting the vine, the vine and the branch are one, you are part of Him and He is part of you; be established in this truth.
John.15:5. (Amp) I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.
If you are established in this truth you will never worry about finances again.
Phip.4:19. (Amp) And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
God the Father is meeting your needs.
Matt.6:27-34. (Amp) And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the span of his life? And why should you be anxious about clothes? Consider the lilies of the field and learn thoroughly how they grow; they neither toil nor spin. Yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his magnificence (excellence, dignity, and grace) was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and green and tomorrow is tossed into the furnace, will He not much more surely clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? Or, what are we going to have to drink? Or, what are we going to have to wear? For the Gentiles (heathen) wish for and crave and diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all. But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides. So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.
Have you ever noticed how many people seem to live in the future, living in the end of the month, waiting for a pay check and worrying about who to pay and who to pass over till next month, now they are living two months in advance, when Jesus said don’t worry about to-morrow the Fathers got that covered.
You and God the Father are partners; you are fellowshipping with each other.
2Cor.6:1. (Amp) Labouring together [as God's fellow workers] with Him then, we beg of you not to receive the grace of God in vain [that merciful kindness by which God exerts His holy influence on souls and turns them to Christ, keeping and strengthening them, do not receive it to no purpose].
Jer.33:3. (Amp) Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).
Listen to the voice of the Father here: You call to Me and I will hear you, I listen to you all the time, you are My child and I am your very own Father, Jesus, your elder brother is seated at my right hand making intercession for you and acting as your advocate, so come boldly to the throne of grace and receive all that you need, all that pertains to life and godliness. What a wonderful life we have in God.
That is all for now folk’s, so I’ll say “till next time” in the meantime have a blessed day and remember that JESUS IS LORD.
If you have never accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour then now is the time to do so, let to-day be the day of salvation for you by praying the following prayer from your heart and accepting the free gift that God is offering you:
“Father, it is written in Your Word that if I confess with my mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in my heart that You have raised Him from dead, I shall be saved. Therefore, Father, I confess that Jesus is my Lord. I make Him Lord of my life right now. I believe in my heart that You raised Jesus from the dead. I renounce my past life with Satan. “I thank You for forgiving me of all my sin. Jesus is now my Lord, and I am a new creation. Old things have passed away. Now all things become new in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
If you have prayed the above prayer then go and study the Eternal Life document for a greater understanding of what you have been given by God your Father.
