Has your thinking changed as you’ve been in the Word? Are you seeing yourself as a child of God rising above the things that had defeated you before? Are you getting a new picture of yourself IN Christ? You’ll continue to grow stronger as you continue to let the Word transform you. Paul says in Romans 12:2 to be transformed by the renewing of your mind—your thoughts. If you don’t change your thoughts, you’ll be stuck where you are allowing the same old thoughts of defeat to direct your paths. Renew your mind. Allow your thoughts to be overwritten by the Word of God. After all, those are His promises for you. But if you don’t receive them, they won’t change you at all. Establish yourself in faith—believing and trusting God/His Word because the truth is: you’ve been redeemed from the curse of sin. Live in that reality.
I am redeemed from the curse of sin, sickness, and poverty (Deuteronomy 28:15-68; Galatians 3:13).
I am firmly rooted, built up, established in my faith and overflowing with gratitude (Colossians 2:7).
“9 And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:9-10). Jesus was walking through Jericho and saw Zacchaeus up in the tree watching Him. Jesus told him to get down and invited himself to Zacchaeus’s house. In the presence of Jesus, Zacchaeus responded by getting his accounts square for he was a tax collector and they were notorious for cheating the people. Jesus told him that salvation had come to his house that day. Most then conclude that Jesus was saying that Zacchaeus was saved. Jesus did put him in the category of the lost. The main point we need to see is that Jesus is salvation. We often see the slogan that Jesus Saves, but we don’t see Jesus as the salvation Himself. When Jesus walked into the house of Zacchaeus, salvation walked in. Wherever Jesus is salvation is. You can’t separate them. Jesus went to the cross to save. That was His mission from the start. He is salvation.
