June 1 Echoes of Eternity
But to him that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
Romans 4:5
I am your righteousness—the only righteousness that will ultimately count. Your righteousness is always sullied and mixed with unworthy motives. This I accept and cleanse, because of My own mercy.
I call you to rejoice in My righteousness. It is peace and joy. There is no striving or strain in it. It is. I know your frame, that it is dust. But I have not despised the work of My hands. I have not turned My back on My redemption. You are part of a redeemed people, and you have been purchased at a great price, because I have set My love on you. Don’t try to figure it out. You cannot. Let it humble you in the
right way. Let it free you in the right way. Let it lift you up in the right way. Learn to flow in My Spirit—casting aside the weights and sins— even the pride in your “righteousness.” My yoke is still easy and My burden is still light. Ponder what this means.
