God’s verdict on your life
Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. (Romans 8:30)
What does it mean to have predestinated? It means to have a predetermined outcome or destination. It means God, in His infinite wisdom, in the counsels of eternity long before He laid the foundations of the world, had already made up His mind about you. Think about this for a moment.
There are those who will try to convince you that you need to plead your cause in the courts of heaven for your deliverance, your healing, your provision, or whatever other thing you have need of, but the Bible very clearly says God’s verdict was already set before you were ever born. How can YOU personally know this for sure?
Did God call you? If so, He predestinated you. If He called you, he justified you. To be justified is to have already been acquitted, to have already been vindicated in ‘the courts of heaven’ if you want to call it that.
The verdict already reads ‘JUSTIFIED.’
The verdict already reads PROVIDED FOR.
The verdict already reads HEALED.
The verdict already reads SET FREE.
The verdict already reads LOVED.
It also reads GLORIFIED. Some measure of God’s glory, which He does not give to another (Isaiah 42:8), has been appointed to YOU because Christ lives in you.
So, how then do we see this glory? We find the answer in the first verses of Romans 8:
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
The simplest surrender to the Holy Spirit will set you free from the law of sin and death, and once free, you are not only free for His use, but free to be able to see His glory in your life.
