Day 166 - FOUNDATION STONES IN A YEAR
READING: Genesis 15
Can you see how very much God loves it when His people believe what He tells them? God was so delighted with Abram’s response of faith that He blessed him with the greatest blessing there is – He declared him righteous.
We may ask why this is so significant for Abram and, for that matter, for us. It is simply this. Sin separates us from God and all His blessings; but the righteousness that God gives is the same kind of righteousness that He has, a righteousness that is completely perfect. What a blessing that a man who is born into sin, and completely sinful in everything, should be told by the only true holy and righteous God that he has been made as righteous as God himself.
There is no greater blessing than this; there is nothing that God can give to us that can surpass this. It is this blessing that every person on earth should want more than life and breath itself.
Heavenly Father, grant me afresh the revelation of being declared righteous by you.
