When You Don't Feel Good Enough {Romans 3}

Since all have sinned and are falling short of the honor and glory which God bestows and receives.- Romans 3:23 AMP

Doesn't it happen to you? how we often fall into the trap of thinking we are the worst people on the face of the earth and that nobody does as many wrong things as we do. It happens to me. Specially as a mom. Most times I feel like such a bad mom. But Romans 3:23 says that ALL have sinned and FALLEN SHORT of the glory (excellence) of God. Every man, woman and child that has ever born or ever will, has already a problem with sin. The good news? God provided the answer to that problem.

Just as all have sinned, we are all justified an made righteous through the redemption provided in Jesus Christ. That means that all our "wrongness" has become "rightness".

I know that the enemy wants us to feel wrong, worthless and like such hopeless messes. He likes us to feel like "something is wrong with us". Our enemy knows that if he can keep us in the prison of self'hatred, self-rejection, or simply not liking ourselves we will never step out in faith to fulfill our God ordained destiny. After all, his main goal is preventing us from making progress or being a threat to him and the kingdom of darkness.

It is only when we believe we have been made the righteousness of God that we will start "behaving" rightly. The Bible says that man is as he thinks (Prov.23:7). We cannot produce the fruit of something for which no seed has been sown.

"For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him"- 2 Cor. 5:21

Have a blessed beautiful weekend, and remember, you are the righteousness of God!
