Day 5 – Judgment
Yes. You read it right. Judgment. I am happy dance grateful for judgment. I have come to understand that when a man or woman says ‘don’t judge me’ they are really saying ‘don’t tell me I did wrong’.
I would so like to say Dear One perish the thought! There is no need for me to judge, nor can I.
GOD already has.
It is recorded in His Word – the judgment is written there for us to read and believe for ourselves.
But that’s not what I am happy dance grateful about. Would you like to know?
Cause I really want to share it.
I am happy dance grateful that I am no longer afraid of judgment. Moreover, I am delighted to look my sins square in the face and hear them declared worthy of judgment. Why?
Because the next thing I hear is that JESUS PAID IT ALL for me and because I have accepted His sacrifice, I am free of guilt and condemnation.
I am happy dance grateful that nothing I think, say, or do is hidden from Father and He, the HOLY SPIRIT, is ever-present to nudge me, prod me, remind me, whatever it takes to get me to agree, and lay that unholy thought or deed at the foot of JESUS’ cross and be fully clean and un-condemned.
Oh yes! I’ll gladly take moments of horrendous painful judgment to receive the full pardon offered by JESUS CHRIST!!
Yes! Yes! HOLY SPIRIT tell me, convince me when I am wrong when I have sinned against You. I invite You to judge my thoughts and my deeds continuously. And, if You use the mouth of one of my brothers or sisters to speak that correction, thank You, LORD. Thank You that they and You love me enough to tell me. Amen and Amen in JESUS’ Name.

John 5:23-25 Amplified Bible (AMP)
23 So that all men may give honor (reverence, homage) to the Son just as they give honor to the Father. [In fact] whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, Who has sent Him.
24 I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the person whose ears are open to My words [who listens to My message] and believes and trusts in and clings to and relies on Him Who sent Me has (possesses now) eternal life. And he does not come into judgment [does not incur sentence of judgment, will not come under condemnation], but he has already passed over out of death into life.
25 Believe Me when I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the time is coming and is here now when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear it shall live.
