“The truth that you stand under affects how you stand.”
The authority we have is based on the truth that God has already fought and won the battle. We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. As a man believes in his heart, so is he. So, if we believe that we are less than what God has said we are, we are only doing ourselves a disservice. Our identity in Christ stands on His finished work on the cross and not on our ability to be righteous. That’s why we shouldn’t rely on our own understanding of a situation. We should rely on the faith that Christ has already won the war. “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” (2 Corinthians 5:7)
Have a blessed day?
