DIG for Thursday the 1st of February…..feeling condemned, well you have gone under law…..Romans 6 v 14

I was listening to some amazing teaching last night and heard a really interesting statement.

The teacher said that God cannot condemn us, the devil cannot condemn us and we even cannot condemn ourselves.

There is only one-way to receive condemnation, and that is to put ourselves under law!

If we are not under law there is nothing anyone can say or do so that can make us feel condemned.

If we feel condemnation we have, in one way or another, put ourselves back under law.

As born again believers living under the New Covenant we are now under grace, and not under law (Romans 6 v 14).

This can be a truth that can set us free if we truly realise its implications.

If we feel condemned we should attempt to find out what part of our lives is under law; what are we striving for and trying to achieve through our own strength.

We can then change this situation, remind ourselves that we are under grace and free ourselves from condemnation and guilt.

We can rest in the finished work of Jesus Christ, putting ourselves back under grace.

Under grace there is no condemnation, EVER!

When we trust in Jesus and His finished work (that is live under grace) we are not relying upon our own efforts and strengths so there can never be any condemnation.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus and thank you that I live under grace”.

Romans 6 v 14…..For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace


DIG for Wednesday the 31st of January…..what are you allowing though the gates into your life…..Proverbs 23 v 7

I’ve been pondering another verse this morning that I’ve used in my teaching series on how our thoughts are very important, and this is the ‘signature’ verse for the series.

Proverbs 23 v 7 tells us that as a man thinketh so is he.

This is a fundamental spiritual and natural law put in place by God the Father.

He has given us power over our lives through our thought patterns.

If we think we are a loser we will fail, however if we think like a winner (and then believe and put in place appropriate actions) we will succeed.

The word ‘thinketh’ literally means gatekeeper in the Hebrew.

This is a wonderful picture of how our thoughts allow various things into our lives.

If we are pessimistic and think about sickness we will get sick; our thoughts will allow sickness to come in through the ‘gate’ and into our bodies.

This confirms the verse we looked at yesterday, that merry thoughts are like a medicine (Proverbs 17 v 22).

However if we are optimistic and think on the things of the Lord (such as healing Scriptures) we are far more likely to live in health.

In our spirit we have everything we need for health, prosperity and everything else associated with a life of abundance.

Our soul (mind, will and emotions) is the gate (or valve) through which this abundance can flow into our bodies and the physical world around us.

It is our thought patterns that allow us to work out this goodness; it is also our thought patterns that can keep this abundance shut away in our spirit.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you lord that I already have all I need for life in abundance in my born again spirit”.

Proverbs 23 v 7…..For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee
