I was meditating on this revelation today.
For the longest time, I would work so hard to ignore or undo bad thoughts, bad feelings, bad memories.
If I remembered something that made me mad, angry, or I felt upset that some event or circumstances transpired a way that I wish had not happened, I would feel so bad that I was remembering that sentiment again.
Then I learned about what it means to be established in righteousness. This status we have in Christ Jesus cannot be asailed, no matter what happens to us, what happens around us.
"In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee." (Isaiah 54:14)
We are established in His righteousness (Isaiah 54:17)
In fact, we are made the righteousness of God in Christ!
That's where we are today, and all the blessings that come upon the righteous, come upon us because of Jesus.
I started to realize more and more that it didn't matter what I was feeling, what I was thinking, where I was going, or what was happening to me.
I have been made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:21).
That's where I am, and that's where I shall rest and remain blessed, no matter what happens to me.
With that, I both know and believe that I am defended, protected, prepared to be overcome, no matter what attacks may come my way!
