The law can NOT coexist with Christ in your life for righteousness!
The simple reason is this ALL Goodness comes from Christ in you and None from you! If you get this, if you really understand this and are secure in this – EVERYTHING else falls into place – if not – well as the old saying goes you are just spitting into a fan!
The next two devotionals in this series are dedicated to the idea that ALL Goodness comes from Him and resting in that IS True rest!
“I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” – Psalm 27:13-14
When you “die to Christ” you become alive to the eternal – but most never wake up to that reality 100% and in fact most never wake up to it at all. The main reason for this is that many are in fact religious Christians instead of grasping the reality of Being a spiritual beings in a physical body!
With this being said if and when a person wakes up to the “land of the living” they will see the Goodness of The Living God in every petal of every flower they see – “Wait for the LORD” and the scenery will Blow your spiritual mind – this is Grace!
One reason why this verse really clicked with me is this “I Remain Confident of This” – in my darkest hour and my weakest moment and my most painful reality when the air I breathed felt like sandpaper on my soul followed by acid being poured over it – I remained confident that God Is Good – I just had no idea how good until I left all my limited God in a box thinking behind for 7 simple questions and scripture!
Here is my spiritual prescription for you – SEEK! BANG on the door of the GOODNESS of God alone and keep BANGING till your fist are bloody and you can’t see straight – but the sooner you accept the GOODNESS you will find in this 7 question Bible study – the better your life will be – here is the link:
And as always I stand ready to counsel anyone who honestly seeks to find The True Grace of God!
