Behavior is a Reflection

“Answer this question; Does God, who lavishly provides you with His own presence, His Holy Spirit, working things in your lives you could never do for yourselves, does He do them because of your strenuous moral striving or because you trust Him to do them in you? Don’t these things happen among you just as they happened with Abraham? He believed God, and that act of belief was turned into a life that was right with God.” Galatians 3:5-6 MSG

Righteousness is not about behavior. Righteousness comes from faith (Romans 4:19-25).

Behavior is a reflection of what you believe about God and what you believe about yourself.  When you focus on the goodness of God, how much He loves you, that you are accepted & beloved, and as you grow in understanding of who you are in Christ; the behavior will begin to change automatically. It may take time but it will change.

In Christ:

You cannot be separated from God’s love (Romans 8:31)

You are a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17)

You have eternal life (John 10:28 & Romans 6:23)

You are free. (Romans 8:2 & Galatians 2:4)

You are a joint heir with Christ (Romans 8:17, Galatians 3:26 & Ephesians 3:6)

You are established and anointed (2 Corinthians 1:21)

You are triumphant (2 Corinthians 2:14

You are able to see and understand the truth (2 Corinthians 3:14 & 1 John 5:20)

You are justified by faith (Romans 5:1 & Galatians 2:16)

You are reconciled to the Father (Romans 5:10, 2 Corinthians 3:14 & Ephesians 2:13)

You are blessed with every spiritual blessing (Ephesians 1:3)

You are sitting in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:6)

You were created for good works (Ephesians 2:10)

You are sanctified (1 Corinthians 6:11)

You are accepted (Ephesians 1:6)

You are strengthened to do what needs to be done (Philippians 4:13)

You have abounding grace (2 Corinthians 9:8, Ephesians 2:8 & 2:18)

You are free from condemnation (Romans 8:1)

It’s good to remind yourself daily who you are in Him. If you’d like an expanded list to read and confess daily check out this link from Joyce Meyer Ministries.
