Philippians 3:3 For we are the circumcision which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. ~ Our confidence is not to rest in the things that we do or accomplish in our flesh. When we do, every time we fail, miss the mark, or go through struggles, our confidence will waiver and condemnation will come to beat us down and cause us to draw back. But when we put our confidence in Christ Jesus and the completed work of the Cross, our confidence should never waiver because it was finished, accomplished, and completed over 2000 years ago. That is why we rejoice in Christ. That is why we worship God in spirit. When we accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, he made us righteous and victorious, he made us holy and blameless, he justified us and accepted us at that very moment. When we gain an understanding of this, it will cause us to walk differently in this world. We will be the manifestations of the sons of God in the earth. No longer children tossed to fro but those who are unmoveable, unshakeable, and always victorious in Christ!
Jesus is our stay!! He is our constant, the one who saves, heals, and delivers. He is our help in the time of trouble and our peace in the midst of the storms. No matter what season we are in, we are his workmanship and can rest assured that he is working in us bringing us into perfection, even when we can’t see his hand moving on our behalf. In the midst of the waters, he is with us. The rivers will not overtake us and the fires will not burn us. We are being perfected and being changed from glory to glory.
We can rejoice today knowing that God has not left us to ourselves but has given us a promise in John 14:19 ….because I live, ye shall live also.
Lift up your eyes today. Your help cometh from The Lord. He is your strength and your joy. He has not forsaken the works of his hands. He is with us, yea even until the ends of the earth.
