“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV)
The New Testament believer is under grace and not under the law. Under the dispensation of grace, God is not looking at you, He is looking at Jesus. The reason He does not see you is that you are in Christ. You are now in Christ, and all the goodness in Christ is now yours. Everything He has belongs to you. The way God sees Him is the way He sees you. He has accepted you in the beloved. Therefore, you are free in Christ. Stop looking at yourself. When you look at yourself, you will see struggle and you will see failure. When you look at yourself you will see that there is no boldness and no authority. But when you see yourself in Christ, you will say to the devil, where are you?
In Christ, God is no longer holding your mistakes against you. Why? Because all the mistakes you made, have been put on Christ. He has no more wraths to put on man. His entire wrath was expended on Christ on the cross. He has nothing but blessing for the new creation. I declare to you that you are blessed.
So you see, understanding this will make you wake up early in the morning and expect nothing other than good to come your way. Only good will come to your house. No evil is permitted to come to your house. If you have received Christ, that is all it takes. If you have received Christ, what it simply means is that Jesus took all your faults and you received all His goodness. It is the divine exchange. That is all! So enjoy what Christ has provided. That is what grace does. You are made so, not because you qualified, not because you did any good. From today, a new dimension of revelation comes upon your life. In the name of Jesus I command your eyes to be opened. No more defeats! No more failures.
