Daily Word for Thursday, July 23, 2015
Among the many beautiful blessings of a life in Christ is freedom from condemnation. Guilt is a major challenge that people struggle with daily. The struggle continues in most lives because people remain vulnerable to Satan’s assault on their minds regarding past failures.
The Bible says in Isaiah 43:25 (God speaking), “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins.”
Now friend, if God chooses not to remember your sins, you don’t have to allow the enemy of your soul to torment you with daily reminders of your past.
Romans 8:1 says, “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”
We can live a life in Christ free from condemnation and guilt that cripples our forward momentum. It’s the benefit every believer receives from being “in Christ.”
All we have to do is to not “walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” To walk in this context simply means to have an awareness of what God has told you to observe and do.
So, we just find out what God wants us to do in any situation and we do it; that’s walking in the Spirit!
Friend, begin your freedom walk today and take authority over the attack to your mind by taking responsibility for what you are allowing to stay there.
II Corinthians 10:5 says, “…casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.”
Cast down anything that is not Christ-like and replace it with the Word of God.
Start today and enjoy your walk in Him.
Peace and blessings!
