It’s day 2 of 21 Days of Affirmation! How has it been going? Have you been saying your affirmations? I have been saying them aloud and there are times when I think yeah, this is actually believable and other times it’s just words coming out of my mouth. But the point is to get the words out of your mouth so they can be spoken over you. Good job for sticking with it!
We have redemption in Him through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace. -Ephesians 1:7
He forgives all your sin;
He heals all your diseases. -Psalm 103:3
He adds: I will never again remember their sins and their lawless acts. -Hebrews 10:17
Of all the affirmations that I can say, this one is one of the most believable there is for me. Just like it says there in Ephesians 1:7, through His blood, we are forgiven. Sometimes I think that we make mistakes here on earth and our flesh longs for fleshly forgiveness. We may feel guilt or remorse for doing something wrong and ask for forgiveness from a person. Sometimes we may get it and other times we may not. In that time no matter what happens here on earth, Christ has forgiven us.
Not assuming you are a compulsive sinner or anything (cough, we all are, cough), but chances are you probably sin each day not even realizing it. The absolute beauty of God’s amazing grace is that even those sins that we do not repent for or acknowledge have been cleansed by the blood of Christ and completely forgiven. That’s so amazing I could jump up and down right now just thinking about it. But I won’t because the neighbors downstairs really hate when I do that.
We are given such mercy. The ultimate approval has been given to us. So much so that He says he will never again remember our sins. FOR REAL? Have you ever had one of those friends (maybe even back in high school) that held a grudge against you? Sure they might eventually start talking to you again. They might even be your friend on facebook, but will they ever really forget the issue they had with you? You’ve heard that saying “I can forgive, but I’ll never forget”.
Nope, not with Jesus. He said that he will never again remember our sins viagra. Now that is one incredible friend. Who cares about Johnny Johnson back in 10th grade anyhow? Jesus totally forgives me!
Lets work on claiming this very affirmation for ourselves because it’s huge.
The challenge: each day that I post a new affirmation, say them to yourself OUT LOUD at least 5 times that day. This can be when you first wake up, when you’re driving down the road, when you’re laying down to sleep, when you’re feeling low, when you’re feeling great about yourself, or at anytime you please. Even if all 5 have to be said in the same minute! There is power in words.
Each time a new affirmation is posted, add that one to the list! And at the end of this little challenge, I pray that you begin to believe these truths about who are you are not only to yourself, but to Christ.
Day 1- I am accepted.
Day 2- I am totally forgiven.
