If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
John 15:7 (KJV)
Abiding in Jesus and letting His Word abide in us sets us up for victory and good success. Our heavenly Father is not withholding anything from us, and our part is to let His Word abide in our hearts. Having the Word rooted in our hearts makes us receptive and available for the favor of God to manifest in our lives!
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28 (KJV)
God is using all things together for our good as we accept this principle by faith. At all times we may live in a continual confident expectation of seeing God’s goodness in our lives. And so regardless of where we find ourselves, let us declare with boldness, “Lord, I can’t wait to see the good You have in store for me today!”
For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
Romans 6:14 (KJV)
The purpose of the law of Moses was to bring people to an end of themselves. The law was given to recognize our need for a Savior. Grace, on the other hand, liberates us from all guilt and condemnation, thereby enabling us to live right. Grace transforms us from the inside out, teaching us to live godly and victorious lives. And grace is not a curriculum or a doctrine; grace is a Person, His name is Jesus.
Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;
Psalm 106:4 (KJV)
Salvation is directly tied to the favor of God. When we receive salvation through placing our faith in the finished works of Jesus, we enter into the favor of God. This means that God blesses us, not because of our works or our efforts, but because of our faith and trust in Him. Today, receive the unmerited favor of God that has already been provided for you!
For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
Romans 5:17 (KJV)
Righteousness is a gift we receive, not a reward we work for. When we receive this unspeakable gift through our faith in the finished works of Jesus, we enter into the abundance of God’s grace—His unmerited favor. His grace being abundant means it is sufficient to wipe out all of our past mistakes, and to supply us with everything that is needed in order for us to live a successful and overcoming life.
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:8 (NKJV)
It is the will of God for us to have all sufficiency in all things. This includes but is not limited to finances. When we know that our heavenly Father wants us to prosper in every area of our life, we are free to give and share knowing that it shall always be given back to us. The more we see ourselves as vessels through which God can bless others, the more of the blessing we tend to see in our own lives.
God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Corinthians 1:9 (KJV)
Jesus through His finished works has already provided everything we will ever need. Our greatest breakthroughs come when we rest from struggling and striving, and instead fellowship with Jesus, enjoying His presence, praising Him for what He has already done. We will bear witness of His faithfulness in our lives.
I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your works; I muse on the work of Your hands.
Psalm 143:5 (NKJV)
It is powerful to bring to our remembrance all that God has already done for us. When we meditate on how good God has been to us in the past, it strengthens our faith in what He will do in our future. Let us never take for granted how far He has brought us, and we will rejoice in anticipation of all the good that is yet to come.
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
Isaiah 61:10 (KJV)
In the eyes of God, through the finished works of Christ, we have been clothed with the robe of righteousness. This means that when the Father sees us, He is not looking at our flaws and mistakes; He is looking at us in His Son, covered with His righteousness. This brings joy to the heart; a boldness rises up in our spirit. We find that, through the gift of His righteousness, we have been empowered to live victoriously in every arena of life.
And to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Ephesians 3:19 (KJV)
Being filled with all the fullness of God is to know His love in and through Christ Jesus. This surpasses intellectual knowledge and must be known in the heart. When it sinks into our hearts just how much He loves us, our lives cannot help but overflow with His goodness.
