Hi Good Thing,

The book of Romans is the book of the Bible I’m studying for the month of December. I’ve been using a plan from the Bible app, YouVersion. This verse definitely stood out to me.

This particular Bible plan had me read Romans chapters 1-5 two days in a row. At first I thought why? Then as I read the chapters the second time, the word Faith kept jumping out at me.

“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.””
‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:17‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭3:23-25‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“And to the one who does not work but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness,”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭4:5‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭5:1‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Looks like faith is important! How is your faith today?Are you placing your faith in the Lord Jesus, or in yourself and your abilities? No judgment here, because I’ve struggled with my faith too. But no more! According to the book of Romans, I’ve sinned and come short of the glory of God. My sins are worthy of death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. I’d rather place my faith in a Savior who died for my sins and rose again, than in myself or any one else!

Let’s resolve to take ourselves down from being the queens of our lives, and place Jesus Christ in his rightful place in our lives as Savior and King 👑

He’s worthy of our faith! Sister, in your prayer time today, will you relinquish control of your singleness, your marriage, your entire life to Jesus today? If you’re afraid of letting go, read the book of Romans and see who you’re placing your faith in 💕
