Reap the Rewards of Righteousness
Righteousness is a subject many believers don’t fully understand. But if you want to walk in the favor of God, you must get a revelation that if you are saved, you are the righteousness of God in Christ.
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. —2 CORINTHIANS 5:21, KJV
Jesus was made to be sin so that you could be made the righteousness of God in Him.
This is an exchange. Jesus became sin; you become righteous.
…that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting people’s sins against them [but canceling them]. And He has committed to us the message of reconciliation [that is, restoration to favor with God]. —2 CORINTHIANS 5:19, AMP
Reconciliation puts us back in right standing with God, which is the definition of righteousness. Reconciliation restores us to favor with God. Our repentance followed by Christ’s forgiveness starts the process.
Favor comes to those whose sins are forgiven. So if you have repented, God has forgiven your sins, and He remembers them no more. You are now in favored status. Forgiveness and righteousness are received by faith.
This faith begins to release the favor of God into our lives. Free from guilt, shame, and
condemnation, we can now enjoy, confess, and walk in the favor of God, which is available to us by faith.
You can access God’s promises by faith. There are great blessings, benefits, and promises that come to us as children of God, and we
access them by faith. If you are not enjoying the fullness you have in Christ, your faith may need to be enlarged. I believe that by faith you can inherit the promises, rest, joy, peace, favor, glory, and all the great things that belong to us children of God. It is a spiritual inheritance. God wants you to enjoy His blessings and promises that are in Christ.
The more revelation and understanding you receive, the more you can confess this and believe and walk in this. Whatever your current situation, faith will turn your whole life around. Faith will cause you to move out of a place of poverty, lack, strife, heaviness, fear, and stress and into a place of victory, abundance, joy, shalom, favor, and all the promises of God that are in Christ, yes and amen, meaning “it is so.”
Don’t let any church, denomination, doctrine, believer, unbeliever, or family member keep you out of the fullness of what Christ has for you. Begin to confess and believe His promises, appropriating them by faith. That means you declare the promises, stand on the promises, and fight hell with the promises.
The enemy will work overtime on your mind and emotions to keep you in an exhausted and frustrated state so you will believe God’s favor is for super saints and not you. This is a lie. Like many people with mega potential, there may be times when you feel stuck outside of your promises because you have unconsciously partnered with the lies of hell. This is one of Satan’s strategies to get you to believe his lies, make vows and partner with him, and empower demon spirits to wreak havoc in your life.
How does this happen? You hear words such as, “Things will never work out for you,”
and then begin to agree with the deception and speak it over yourself: “Things will never work
out for me.” This is the work of the enemy, and as he influences what you speak, his demons will honor your word. They understand the realm of covenant and keep you on the outskirts of God’s best for you by sowing lies into your heart and mind.
You must rise up, break those lies, renew your mind, and begin to prophesy the blessings and favor of God. God’s favor is not just for others; it is for you! As a child of God you are loved, protected, and provided for. You have been stuck and depleted long enough. The enemy has sapped and drained you for far too long, but heaven has resources for every area of your life. Refuse to accept anything less than the promises of God. You have been made righteous in Christ Jesus and all the promises of God are yes in Him and amen. Rise up in faith and believe in the goodness of God. Decree that you will live in the favor of God. Stand on the Word of the Lord and move into the place of peace, promise, favor, and reward.
