“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” Romans 3:23-24, KJV.
To justify means to render innocent. It’s a legal term that declares you’re not guilty. When you know you are justified and made righteous through Jesus, it protects you every time the enemy comes to remind you of your past. It covers you to where those old triggers just don’t work anymore.
You are justified and cleansed through the precious blood of Jesus and nothing and no one can dump the trash of your past on you again. You are clean in God’s sight. You are justified in His sight. You are righteous in His sight, and it’s not because of anything you’ve done, it’s because of what Jesus did for you over 2,000 years ago.
God allows some experiences in your life to show you how much you’ve grown in Him and how deep your faith has become. Since you’ve come this far, keep going farther! Keep having faith in Jesus, the one who has justified you and made you right! Keep receiving His grace!
Prayer: Yes, Lord. I receive your word and I thank you. Thank you that I’m clean and justified in your sight, not by my works, but through Jesus. My slate is clean and there is no residue. Your grace and mercy washed it all away. Hallelujah! Because you’ve justified me, help me Lord not to behave like a condemned sinner. I’m justified and cleansed through Jesus and my name is written in the Lamb’s book of life. Let that awareness fill me with great joy! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
