My beloved child…You are made righteous before God through your faith in Christ My Son’s Blood, shed on your behalf for the forgiveness of your sins. You are justified before Me by faith in Christ Jesus alone, independent of and distinctly apart from obedience to the Law. The observance of the Law has nothing to do with your status of righteousness before Me. [Father God…Rom 3:21-28]

**        **, the Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of the Blood of My Divine Son Jesus, poured out on Your behalf on that cross at Calvary, brought forgiveness for all your sins …past, present, and future…and conferred upon you the judicial status of eternal righteousness before God as an accomplished and finished fact. I have forgiven you of all you have done, and have blotted out the entire record of transgressions proven against you…erased the entire record of your sins. I have removed your sins from you as far as the East is from the West, and have cast your sins into the depths of the sea, never to remember them against you again. I have expunged all your sins from the record; there is nothing written against your name in My Book, just as if you had never sinned!  Sin can never again stain your soul and separate you from God, because the Blood of Christ My Son envelopes your soul, and sin cannot penetrate it.

Abba Father…thank You for washing my robes anew in the Blood of the Lamb…for continually washing my garments as they become soiled with sin and I bring them before You in confession and repentance, making them clean again…dazzling and white. Thank You for Your promise, thank You for Your assurance, that whenever I acknowledge and confess my sins to You, You are faithful and just to forgive me my sins. You are faithful in that You never fail to do so, and just to do so, by virtue of the Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of the Blood of Your Divine Son Jesus, poured out on my behalf on that cross at Calvary for the forgiveness of my sins. Thank You for washing my feet with pure water…for washing the dust of sin off my feet, enabling me to stand before You, to abide here with You in the Holy Of Holies, in the inaccessible Light of the Glory of Your unclouded Presence, having been washed in the Blood of the Lamb, dressed in the white robes of His Righteousness, pure and holy now in Your sight, without spot or wrinkle or blemish. And thank You for giving me fine, radiant linen to wear…dazzling and white…which are the righteous acts that Your Holy Spirit has wrought in me as I have given Him free reign to do so…that my light would so shine before the souls of men that they would see the good deeds, the righteous acts, the moral excellence wrought in me by Your Holy Spirit, and thereby give glory to You, Father, in Heaven.

Thank You, Father, that at this moment in time, after all my years of sins and failure, mistakes and imperfections, I stand before You just as pure and innocent and helpless in Your sight as I was on the day I was born. The most intense desire of my heart going forward is to be pure, holy, and righteous in living out my every day life…in living out my visible physical life, my unseen physical life, and especially my hidden life in my heart… in my mind, my thoughts, my imagination.

Blessed Jesus…You assured me, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled” [Mt 5:6]  Blessed, You said, are those who, in living out their everyday life, hunger and thirst for a purity, holiness, and righteousness of their own that comes from obedience to the Law.  You assured me that my longing will be completely satisfied, and I will be filled up to the measure of all the fullness of God…to the richest measure of Your unclouded Presence, a soul wholly filled and flooded with God Himself!  I delight myself in You, Lord…and You promised to grant me the desires and secret petitions of my heart that are in agreement with Your will. You promised that if only I would just commit my way to You and trust in You, most assuredly You will do this: You will make my righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of my cause like the noonday sun! [Psalm 37:4-6]  Hallelujah!

There is Power in the Blood of the Lamb:
