And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness-.-.-.-but-.-.-.-the righteousness which is of God by faith. —Philippians 3:9
Oh, if I could, by God's grace, pour into you the difference between our every day righteousness and that attitude of a living faith that dares claim and believe in Him! For I perceive there is something after the righteousness of faith that you can never get by the righteousness of the law.
There is something in imputed knowledge and righteousness of God which is greater than all beside. David speaks about it. Paul often speaks about it. But I want to bring just a touch of it on the lines of faith in Abraham's life.
Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. It was an imputed condition. God came forth and said to all the demons in hell and all the men on the earth, "Touch not that man."
You can count on God to bring you through on all lines for "no weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper" (Isa. 54:17).
Lord, by faith impute Thy righteousness that
I might stand even against
the forces of hell. Amen.
