SCRIPTURE: Colossians 1:22, NLT
Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.
JOEL OSTEEN MESSAGE FOR TODAY WEDNESDAY 22ND NOVEMBER 2023.
Friend, it’s so important that you learn to forgive yourself. We have an enemy who loves to accuse us of our past failures and the times we got off course, bringing condemnation and guilt to cause us to be against ourselves. The accuser will tell you that you’ve given in to temptation so many times that you aren’t worthy of God’s forgiveness, that you’ll always be guilty. Don’t believe that lie. The apostle Paul says that God sees you as holy, blameless, and without fault. We see our faults and all we’ve done wrong, but when you asked God to forgive you, He cleared your record. He sees you without a single fault.
The question is, do you see yourself without a single fault, as holy, as blameless? As long as you’re still beating yourself up for what was in your past, as long as you’re living condemned, you are your own enemy. You have to get in agreement with God and believe that what He says about you is true. You are holy and blameless in Christ.
PRAYER FOR TODAY – JOEL OSTEEN 22ND NOVEMBER 2023.
“Father, thank You that when the accuser tries to dump a load of guilt on me, I can say with authority, ‘Condemnation is not acceptable here. Jesus paid the price.’ I am far from perfect, but I will not drag yesterday’s failures into today. I am holy, blameless, and without a single fault. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
