Not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection. (Philippians 3:9-10 NKJV)
When you believe you are who the Word says you are, you will expect every adversity to turn into a victory. Only when you see yourself the way God sees you, will you begin to expect success.
As long as you are looking at your own merits, you will have an element of self-doubt. You will question whether God is going to show you favor in life.
What you have done and who you are has nothing to do with favor and success. That is good news, because without Jesus we are nothing!
God’s favor and God’s honor can’t be earned. You didn’t earn His favor, you didn’t earn His honor, Jesus earned it for you!
Even though Jesus earned it for you, it is still your responsibility to walk in it by faith to see God’s favor become a reality in your life.
God sees you as righteous, above reproach and worthy to be blessed with success. He delights to crown you with glory and honor. Why wouldn’t He give you abundant favor and success in life?
Believe who the Word says you are. See yourself as He sees you. Then you’ll expect every adversity to turn into a victory. You’ll expect success today.
Confession: I have favor and success, not because of my works, but because I believe Jesus made me righteous and earned them for me.
