May the peace of the Lord be with you.
Topic: *FAITH IS A DEED OF ASSURANCE*
Romans 4:21-25 King James Version (KJV)
21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;
24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;
25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.
Hallelujah beloved, we serve a wonderful Jesus who has done every work we need to do for us and is just waiting for us to come to Him, believe in Him and enjoy every blessing and whatsoever that God Almighty has released to us or promised or declared that it's available for the righteous.
Beloved all good and perfect gifts are from the Lord and they are meant for the righteous to possess and enjoy. Some people who are not righteous may sniff it or have some drops because they relate with us or because they lurk around children of God.
We the righteous most of the time condemn ourselves and build in our minds a mindset of being sinners and or not being qualified for the good and perfect gifts God has given to us so we don't receive them and because we don't receive them, we don't possess them to enjoy them.
This is one of the major reasons why we find righteous people suffering and going through lack or need most of the time.
Beloved, please hear me out and even if you don't believe me, believe in the scriptures:
Abraham believed God beyond all reasonable doubts that He is able to do all things so if God has promised then He will deliver and he shall receive, possess and enjoy.
*Beloved, your faith in God Almighty is your deed of assurance that you will receive whatever He has promised without fail, no matter what happens or does not happen, no matter what you do or do not do, to the glory of His holy name.*
Beloved this thought and action of Abraham which is a sign of his faith in God Almighty tells us he had faith in God and the scripture tells us that because of this faith Abraham was imputed with righteousness.
A righteous man qualifies for all the good and perfect gifts from the Lord and Abraham qualified for them because he was righteous.
Now, he was not righteous because he followed some laws or set of rules or anything, *NO*. He was gifted with righteousness by God because he believed in God.
Beloved Abraham was righteous because God gifted him with it not because he lived a life of obeying laws.
The scripture says, this was not written only for the sake of Abraham but also for our sake so that we know that:
1. We are righteous not because of do's and don'ts or laws that we obey but because we have believed in the one who raised Jesus from the dead;
2. Because we have believed in God Almighty, we have been gifted with this righteousness. It is not payment for work done but free gift because we have believed;
3. Because of this righteousness we qualify for every good and perfect gift from the Lord;
4. So we have to accept and receive all the perfect and good gifts from God and enjoy them;
5. When we live this life, our lives would be encouragement for others to also learn from and believe God to be gifted with righteousness to also qualify for every good and perfect gift from the Lord to the glory of God Almighty in Jesus name.
Beloved, *ITS ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else. Jesus died for our offences and He was raised for our justification. If you believe in He who raised Jesus from the dead, you will be gifted with righteousness. Believe in God beloved as Jesus did and live the life of a righteous man.
Prayer: Daddy please help my unbelief. In the mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
