The Righteousness in Me

Do I have any righteousness in me?

Then he (Abraham) believed in the Lord ; and He reckoned it to him as righteousness. Genesis 15:6 NASB

For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” Romans 4:3 NASB

It takes belief in the One true God to have any righteousness at all. As stated above,  “Abraham believed and it was credited as righteousness”.

The good news is:

If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. Romans 8:10 NASB

Christ’s righteousness in you. Him in you makes your spirit alive. Now that is good news!

having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:11 NASB

and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, Philippians 3:9 NASB

How’s your faith? Faith in Christ means you are righteous in Him.

ūüĆĻ God is the righteousness in me.

From Beginning to End

God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.                                                 Genesis 1:16-‬19 NASB

God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also.
Genesis 1:16

There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.                    Genesis 1:19

The first day of creation God said, “Let there be light”, Genesis 1:3. God separated the light from the darkness.

In verses 16 and 19, God created the sun, moon and stars on the 4th day. 
(Thank you Shellie for sharing this revelation).

So what was this light that God spoke and said that it was good on the first day of creation? Well turn from the beginning of God’s word, Genesis, to the end of His word, Revelation.

And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it. In the daytime (for there will be no night there) its gates will never be closed; and they will bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it; and nothing unclean, and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Revelation 21:23‚Ä≠-‚Ĩ27 NASB

“the people who were sitting in darkness¬† saw a great light, and those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death, upon them a light dawned.”¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Mark 4:16

The glory of the Lord! The Lamb of God. Heaven will have no darkness. Only the Light of God.

O the things we have to look forward to as the faithful children of God. . .

“No longer will you have the sun for light by day, Nor for brightness will the moon give you light; But you will have the Lord for an everlasting light, And your God for your glory. “Your sun will no longer set, Nor will your moon wane; For you will have the Lord for an everlasting light, And the days of your mourning will be over.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Isaiah 60:19‚Ä≠-‚Ĩ20 NASB

And there will no longer be any night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever.                                            Revelation 22:5 NASB

ūüĆĻ Are you looking to the everlasting, eternal light?

Feast on Jesus

“Your words were found and I ate them, And Your words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart; For I have been called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts.”
Jeremiah 15:16 NASB

Jesus is the word made flesh.

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14 NASB

Jesus is the bread of life.

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst. John 6:35 NASB

God calls us to grace and mercy found and granted by Him alone. Called unto salvation. Called to a loving relationship with Him. Called to obedience that exudes out of our love for Him.

Are you missing the joy and delight of the Lord? If so, could it be that you are starving yourself?

He said to me, “Son of man, feed your stomach and fill your body with this scroll which I am giving you.” Then I ate it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth. Ezekiel 3:3 NASB

The word of God is important to our spiritual health. Without the word to nourish our souls we are walking a misdirected path in weakness and Ill health. Just as our physical bodies need nourishment so does our spiritual bodies.

Let us not neglect the importance of God’s word. Feed in it daily. Chew on it throughout the day.

God’s word keeps us on the straight and narrow.

“I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.
Job 23:12 NASB

“How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” Psalms 119:103 NASB

Feast on His word everyday. Not only will they be sweet to the soul but you will get to know just how sweet our Lord is.

ūüĆĻ “O taste and see that the Lord is good;” Psalm 34:8

Morning Perspective

Give ear to my words, O Lord,
Consider my groaning.
2 Heed the sound of my cry for help, my King and my God,
For to You I pray.
3 In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice;
In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch. – Psalm 5:1-3

Ever wonder or even tried talking to God through prayer in the morning and then eagerly watch for the movement of God in your day?

If you want to see God and His glory you ought to try. Walking daily with Him, beginning with conversation, brings about a whole new perspective on your day.

Psalm 146

Hallelujah!
My soul, praise the Lord.
I will praise the Lord all my life;
I will sing to my God as long as I live.

Do not trust in nobles,
in man, who cannot save.
When his breath leaves him,
he returns to the ground;
on that day his plans die.

Happy is the one whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lordhis God,
the Maker of heaven and earth,
the sea and everything in them.
He remains faithful forever,
executing justice for the exploited
and giving food to the hungry.
The Lord frees prisoners.
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord raises up those who are oppressed.
The Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord protects foreigners
and helps the fatherless and the widow,
but He frustrates the ways of the wicked.

The Lord reigns forever;
Zion, your God reigns for all generations.
Hallelujah! — Psalm 146

The Glory of The Lord

Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the¬†glory of the¬†Lord¬†filled the tabernacle.¬†Moses¬†was not able to enter the tent of meeting because the cloud had settled on it, and the glory of the¬†Lord¬†filled the tabernacle. — Exodus 40:34-35

It happened that when the priests came from the holy place,¬†the cloud filled the house of the¬†Lord,¬†so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the¬†Lord¬†filled the house of the¬†Lord. — 1 Kings 8:10-11

Can you just imagine the glory of the Lord from these verses? His glory FILLED the tabernacle! His glory so great that no one could enter into the tabernacle.

In 1 Kings the priests were already in the tabernacle when God’s glory filled the place. His glory so great the priests, God’s chosen to serve Him, could not stand before His glory.

Do you ever wonder what it will be like, what you will do, when you actually see God in all His glory?

Lord, Show Us

Then¬†Moses said, ‚ÄúI pray You, show me Your glory!‚ÄĚ — Exodus 33:18

Have you ever asked? Have you ever seen the glory of God manifested in your life?

I have seen glimpses of His glory and look forward to seeing my Lord in His full glory one day. Can you say that?

Oh God, show us your glory, I pray!

Wake up Americans!

The¬†Lord¬†will establish you as a holy people to Himself, as He swore to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord¬†your God and walk in His ways.¬†— Deuteronomy 28:9

‚ÄúThe¬†Lord¬†will send upon you curses, confusion, and rebuke, in all¬†you undertake to do, until you are destroyed and until¬†you perish quickly, on account of the evil of your deeds, because you have forsaken Me.¬†— Deuteronomy 28:20

‚ÄúSee,¬†I have set before you today life and¬†prosperity, and death and¬†adversity;¬†in that I command you today¬†to love the¬†Lord¬†your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you¬†may live and multiply, and that the¬†Lord¬†your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it. But¬†if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them,¬†I declare to you today that¬†you shall surely perish. You will not prolong¬†your¬†days in the land where you are crossing the Jordan to enter¬†and possess it.¬†I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death,¬†the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your¬†descendants,¬†by loving the¬†Lord¬†your God, by obeying His voice, and¬†by holding fast to Him;¬†for¬†this is your life and the length of your days,¬†that you may live in¬†the land which the¬†Lord¬†swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.‚ÄĚ — Deuteronomy 30:15-20

Look at the United States of America’s history and then tell me that Jesus doesn’t make a difference in the lives of people and nations. God will get the glory! How do you want to participate in that glory?

O Lord

¬†Yours, O¬†Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O Lord, and You exalt Yourself as head over all.¬†¬†Both riches and honor come from You, and You rule over all, and in Your hand is power and might; and it lies in Your hand to make great and to strengthen everyone.¬†Now therefore, our God, we thank You, and praise Your glorious name. — 1 Chronicles 29:11-13

And forgive us when we do not acknowledge that You are. Open our eyes to see your splendor that we may be reminded that you are worthy to be praised, thanked, exalted, and revered. Only You are head over all. All things come from You. All we need is You! Help our lips to speak Your praise, not only to others but to You, O Lord,.

Amen.
