Proverbs 28:1 tells us that “the righteous are as bold as a lion.” The only way you’re going to have the boldness God wants you to have is to know that you are righteous. When you know who you are in Christ, when you know that God is smiling down on you and your sins are forgiven, that’s when you’re going to hold your shoulders back and have the boldness and confidence that God really wants you to have.
Being made righteous doesn’t mean that we’ll always be perfect. It doesn’t mean that we’ll never make mistakes. But when you have a heart after God, when you have a desire to please Him, when Jesus is your Lord and Savior, then you are righteous by your faith in Him. You have been born into God’s very own family. You didn’t do anything to earn this righteousness; it’s simply a gift, and you have to learn how to receive it.
When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you are free from condemnation! Is there something that you feel guilty about? If you have repented, the Bible says He takes your sin and throws it as far as the east is from the west. He casts your sins into the sea of forgetfulness. God actually chooses to forget your sins! That means your sins are completely removed. In fact, they aren’t even yours anymore. Don’t let the enemy dig up your past or try to make you feel guilty for something that happened a long time ago, or even yesterday. The enemy is called the “accuser of the brethren”, and he works overtime to bring you down with false accusations. Be confident that God doesn’t remember your past. You are free from condemnation through the blood of Jesus Christ. The next time the enemy brings up your past, declare that you are free from condemnation in Jesus’ Name!
A Prayer for Today
Heavenly Father, thank You for setting me free in Jesus! Thank You for forgiveness. Thank You washing me clean and making me new today. I receive your grace and mercy so that I can be a vessel used by You today. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

If you close your eyes just as it crashes, you feel really relaxed because your brain thinks you’ve actually died for a second.
it scares me how relaxed my brain actually was when i closed my eyes wow
I’m actually scared of how relaxed I felt
maybe that is the glimpse of the peace of death.
I think it’s so amazing how far I’ve come.
God is working in my life and moving me. I don’t think I’ve ever seen how glorious He is until now and I know it’s because he’s opened my eyes.
I’ve made peace with my sister, my dad supports me in everything I’m doing, my heart however..
what is the condition of my heart oh Lord?
With love, I ask.
