Transformation Today: A Daily Devotional with Victor Adeyemi
Topic: Affirm Your Righteousness
“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” 2 Cor 5:21
Everyone behaves according to the image he has of himself. Each person is a product of his thought and a reflection of his self-concept. Whoever sees himself as a fornicator would act like one. “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…” Proverbs 23:7
A child of God ought to see himself in the light of the word of God. The word of God says we are the righteousness of God and as we focus on our righteousness in Christ Jesus, we begin to live our lives as the righteousness of God that we are.
Sometimes you need to separate your actions, shortcomings and mistakes from who you really are in Christ Jesus. See yourself living a victorious life over sin and standing strong in the face of every temptation that comes your way. Affirm your victory again and again until it becomes your reality.
*Confession: I know who I am, I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus!
