Confess Success

I think everyone wants to be a success in life. You can try it without God and hope for the best or you can do it God’s way and become a guaranteed success in life. Those who try to be a success without God are limited because of the curse that is on mankind. The curses are everywhere and they keep us from being a success when we are outside of the covenant of God. Thank God you and I have been redeemed from the curse of the law. Before we were born again, we were under the curse of the law. No one has ever been able to keep the law. That is why we needed a savior, someone to take our place. Jesus became a curse for us that the blessings of Abraham would come upon us who believe. I am a believer. Are you? Jesus redeemed us from the curse according to Galatians 3:13.

 

We have redemption from the curse through Him. Colossians 1:14 says, “In whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” Ephesians 1:7 and I Corinthians 1:30 tell us the same thing: we have redemption through His blood. We are redeemed from the curse; that, in itself, has made us a success. We have this redemption through His blood. We didn’t have to earn it; we just believe we are redeemed and act like it. We are in Him. We do not have to work for success. We are successful because we have been redeemed from the curse. The curse is what causes us to be unsuccessful.

 

What is left for us to do to begin to walk in the God given success that is yours? Psalms 107:2 says to let the redeemed of the Lord say so. That is what we must do. We must confess our redemption: “I have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus. I have been redeemed from the curse of the law. I have been redeemed from what has made me unsuccessful, and now I am redeemed unto success. As a redeemed person, I am successful.”
