Sometimes I look in a mirror, eyeball to eyeball with myself, and I point to myself and say, “Andrew, God loves you. You’re holy. You’re pure, just as if you’ve never sinned.” It’s possible that when you first say that the hair will stand up on the back of your neck because you’re thinking, “Oh God, don’t strike me dead for saying this.” But after a while, as you keep saying it by faith, knowing it’s God’s word, it will minister to you and you will begin to believe it. You will begin to believe God really loves you and you’ll get to the point where you can’t wait to go right into His throne room!
If an angel stood in your way and said, “What makes you think you’re worthy to come in here?” You could rebuke him and tell him, “Get out of my way! Through the blood of Jesus I’m righteous, I’m holy, and I’m pure, and I’m God’s child. You have no right to stop me.
