Matthew 6:33 “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and HIS righteousness; and all of these things shall be added unto you.” Sin does not unravel God’s righteousness, it unravels your life. The Lord’s righteousness is undeserved favor given to all who seek and accept. We cannot “earn” God’s righteousness but we can “receive” it by accepting Jesus. The devil will try to attack the righteousness given to you through condemnation of every sin. Because of Jesus and The Cross, we are living under grace and mercy not under the law of the Old Testament. Because of Jesus we have the Holy Spirit who guides, strengthens and comforts us to take that next step in God’s plan. Jesus pleads intercession for us to God because He believes in us. God rejoices when we listen and yield to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Lord IS NOT condemning us, He is our #1 cheerleader. Condemnation is not of God. Don’t let the devil steal your righteousness through condemnation when God is still standing there with his best robe, a ring for your finger and shoes to wear (Luke 15:22) cheering you on to keep trying. Get up, glorify the Lord and go forth in His plan!!
