Established in Righteousness Week 3 Day 3 of Living Loved

You shall establish yourself in righteousness…; you shall be far from even the thought of oppression or destruction, for you shall not fear, and from terror, for it will not come near you. Isaiah 54:13

I am continually amazed at the freedom that the gift of righteousness brings to my heart. When I live in the awareness of who I truly am in Jesus, the devil may try to throw his oppressing, negative thoughts at me, but I simply say, "No! I’m not listening to your lies. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus and God’s promises are true in my life!"

Psalm 112:6-8 says, “ a righteous man will be remembered forever. He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. His heart is secure, he will have no fear, in the end he will look in triumph on his foes.”

NO FEAR, SECURITY, and TRIUMPH are the fruit of being established in righteousness. I can live secure and confident in this world because of Jesus!

For the last 19 years, I have continually established my heart in the truth of God’s promises concerning my children. Even though the enemy has used negative circumstances to attempt to oppress me with his lies, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said, Devil, I’m not listening to your lies! My Heavenly Father has spoken and what He says is true. His Spirit will not depart from my children and His Word will come forth from their lips (Isaiah 59:20,21)

Today I experienced the manifestation of that promise as I watched my children sing about what Jesus says about them in this You tube video.  Listen as 3 of my precious children and two of their friends sing the song, "Talk to the hand devil, cuz this heart ain't listenen." We can all live free from the thought of oppression by being established in the truth that we are the righteouness of God in Christ Jesus and what He says about us is true!

    Connie, yesterday I remembered this scripture while I was having some negative emotions. I'm now so accustomed to having only peace in my life that when peace seemed to be far from me, I knew it was a lie and the Holy Spirit reminded me of the truth about who I am in Christ Jesus. Not only is actual oppression, but even the very thought of oppression, is far from me because I am the righteousness of God. His peace flooded my heart and I was once again secure as I remembered that He loves me and chose me before the foundations of the world to live in His love and experience His great and precious promises. I do not fear bad news, because I know the good news of what God says about me because of Jesus!

  2. Michelle, I love what you said, "I do not fear bad news, because I know the good news of what God says about me because of Jesus." Now that will keep oppression far from us! All I have to say is WOOHOO! Jesus really does love us!
