The Just Shall ‘LIVE’ by Faith Pt3

Gal 2:20-21 The life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.    (NKJV)

In our last Blog we saw that every Christian needs a revelation of the righteousness (right standing) of God by faith. As we meditate on the truths of righteousness, God gives us the revelation of it and releases faith in our hearts to believe that revelation and put it into practice in our lives.

Example: We still carry the guilt of mistakes we made in our former life of sin. Satan reminds us constantly with his accusations and condemnation. But our revelation of right standing with God causes us to see that all our sin past, present and future was forgiven, washed away and cleansed from all unrighteousness.

Armed with these truths we can now exercise our faith by standing on God’s Word and throwing off all guilt and condemnation and silencing the voice of satan; And because we’ve stood in righteousness, our hearts experience peace and joy. Rom 14:17  for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. (NKJV).

By exercising our faith it has now grown and become a living faith, a fluid faith, not a stagnant faith; and the growth in our faith equips us to to believe God for bigger issues in our life so that we grow from faith to faith.

Rom 1:17 For in the Gospel a righteousness which God ascribes is revealed, both springing from faith and leading to faith [disclosed through the way of faith that arouses to more faith]. As it is written, The man who through faith is just and upright shall live and shall live by faith.    (AMP)

This is what it means to, ‘live by faith’, so that daily we are able to put this revelation into practice and in doing so experience the life of God pulsating through our whole being, releasing motivation for today and expectancy for tomorrow.

Meditation point: As I feed this revelation of righteousness it will grow bigger and bigger till it touches every area of my life.
