I AM A NEW CREATION READY TO BE CHALLENGED

"The righteousness based on faith speaks...'The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart.'...that is the Word of faith that is made knownfor with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation."
II Corinthians 5:17
I am a new creation - a new person altogether in Christ Jesus. Old things have passed away; all things have become fresh and new!
I am already cleansed because of the Word Jesus has spoken to me.
Romans 5:1, II Corinthians 5:21
I have been made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I am completely justified by faith apart from the works of the law. Therefore, I have peace with God today, and I can stand in His presence guiltless, unashamed and with a sense of superiority.
Jesus has reconciled me in the body of His flesh through His death, to present me to the Father, blameless, justifiable, and irreproachable. Therefore, I will honor Him by continuing in faith, firmly established, steadfast, and unmovable from the truth of God's Word that I have heard.
The Father has qualified me to share in the Divine Inheritance with other saints in light, and has drawn me unto Himself, into His marvelous light, having transferred me into the kingdom of His dear Son.
Since I have been raised with Christ to a new life, I aim at, and seek the rich eternal treasures that are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. I set and keep my mind on those heavenly things, and not on earthly things. As far as this world is concerned, my new exalted life is hidden with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:5, 8
Therefore, the members of my body are saturated with morality, purity, benevolence, contentment, honesty, holiness and righteousness. My life is synchronized with the will of God. It depicts peace, generosity, humility, gentleness and thoughts of blessings,
Colossians 4:6, 1 Peter 3:15, Colossians 3:12
I let my speech at all times be gracious, pleasant, and winsome, seasoned with salt, so that I, with meekness and reverence, would always be equipped to give the right answer to anyone who questions me about the reason of the hope that is in me. I clothe myself, as God's chosen one, purified, holy and well loved by God Himself, by putting on behavior marked by tender heartedness, humility, meekness, compassion, mercy, kindness, a lowly opinion of myself, gentleness, patience which is tireless and long suffering, and the power to endure all things with temperance.
I let all men know, perceive and recognize my unselfishness, politeness and forbearing spirit.
I look carefully how I walk. I live purposefully, worthily and accurately. I am a wise, witty, sensible, intelligent person, making the very most of the time, buying up each opportunity because the days are evil. Therefore, I am definite about decisions I make, I am thoughtful, I fully understand and firmly grasp, what the will of the Lord is.
I have strength for all things in Christ who empowers me. I am ready to face any challenge and I am able to do anything through Him who infuses inner strength in me. I am self sufficient in Christ's sufficiency.
I am established in the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, I am liberated and I am constructive. I have indwelt power, my life is lavished with love and I am securely attached to God in Christ Jesus.
I listen to God's Word, I'm protected in its truth and its power, therefore, I live securely in Him, and His goodness is continuously overshadowing me.
I thank You Lord, that my love abounds still more and more in all knowledge, understanding and spiritual discernment. I approve all things that are excellent. I will remain sincere and guiltless until the day of Christ.
I am a child of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
I am renewed in knowledge after the image of God
