Speak Good Things, King-Priest in Christ!

"12And the priest shall value it, whether it be good or bad: as thou valuest it, who art the priest, so shall it be." (Leviticus 27: 12)

We have a High Priest in heaven today, and He speaks nothing but good on our behalf before God the Father:

"31What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. 34Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us." (Romans 8: 31-34)

Not only that, but we are in Christ today, and God sees us in His Son, and we are now His own children:

"For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father." (Romans 8: 15)

and also

"Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world." (1 John 4: 17)

God the Father did not send His Son to die on the Cross for us to label ourselves with such demeaning, shameful identities.

He took away the sin, and made us all sons.

It is a deep shame that for so many years, I lived in a home where my other mother told me that I was an alcoholic, simply because she had been programmed to believe that garbage for so many years.

She also talked about how she was a flea, a dog, and a worm, as if there was any kind of humility in that.

We need to be freed from ourselves, and look at Jesus, the author and Finished of faith (Hebrews 12: 1-2).

Not at ourselves, but at Jesus, and we are saved (Isaiah 45: 22), for He is our salvation.

He has made us kings and priests (1 Peter 2: 9), and in the words of a king there is power, and the word of a priest determines value.

We need to speak God's word over our lives, our circumstances, not our thinking, nor the opinions of men.
