The Effects of Righteousness:


How to Manifest All That Grace Has Made Available

We are the righteousness of God. We can think that with our intellectual minds, but we won’t get the results in our lives until we let that sink into our psyche and believe it in our hearts. Our righteousness didn’t come as a result of anything we did, but through the finished works of Jesus. If we believe this strongly enough, it will show in our thoughts, words, and actions.

Make peace with God, and He will make you secure.
We are justified through faith, so we can be at peace with God (Romans 5:1, 2).
When we have peace, we have security in turmoil. Nothing is broken or missing in our lives.
By faith we are granted access to grace through the righteousness of God.
One man brought death. But another man, Jesus Christ, brought life (Romans 5:17).
When we believe we are the righteousness of God, we begin to see grace rule in our lives.
The devil tries to attack our identity by getting us to question and doubt that we are righteous.
Sin brings death, but grace brings life through Jesus Christ (Romans 5:21).
Living our lives through Jesus and letting Him live in us gives us not just mere existence, but abundant, eternal, everlasting life.
Confessing what we believe is an important component of manifesting what grace has already made available.
We must profess our righteousness, which is of faith (Romans 10:6-10).
Whatever our heart is full of, will find its way into our mouths. Our confession and our believing are connected.
We must believe with our hearts that we are the righteousness of God.
Instead of saying what we see or do not see, we should declare what we have through our identity as the righteousness of God (Matthew 6:33).
Be of a different spirit than the world. Have a spirit of faith (2 Corinthians 4:13).
We believe, therefore we speak. The mouth has power.
The tongue can bring life or death, and the results of what we say manifest themselves in our lives (Proverbs 18:21).
In the Word of God we are taught that whether we confess our faith or profess it, we should hold fast to our belief that we are the righteousness of God.
Jesus is our High Priest who will intercede with God on our behalf. His grace is sufficient in our time of need (Hebrews 4: 14-16).
Jesus ministers to our profession. Our profession is how we make our living.
The Amplified Bible uses the word “confess” instead of “profess.” So our confession of faith is our profession.
In the Old Testament, God declared Abraham righteous, and Abraham obeyed Him (Genesis 22:1-5).
When God told Abraham to sacrifice his son, Abraham acted by faith and declared to his servants that both he and his son would be returning together from the sacrificial altar. This behavior was a powerful form of worship.
Confessing our faith and thanking God for what has already been done in the finished works of Jesus encourages us to trust God.
When Lazarus died, Jesus came four days later, gave thanks to God for what was already done, and raised Lazarus from the dead (John 11:38-44).
Jesus confessed His faith when He accepted the five loaves and two fishes from a young boy, gave thanks and praise for what was already done, broke the bread, and fed 5,000 people, with plenty of food left over (John 6:11-13).
Abraham believed God when He told Abraham that Sarah would have a son, and his faith was reckoned to him as righteousness (Romans 4:17-22).
Relying on God rather than trusting in our own wisdom has multiple benefits.
Our stress levels will decrease and our overall health will improve (Proverbs 3:7-9, AMP).
We should honor God with our money, and this honor will attract grace.
Give cheerfully, not grudgingly, and He will make all grace abound. This grace is sufficient for every good thing (2 Corinthians 9:7, 8, AMP).
