Supernatural Strength & Ability (Isaiah 40:31)

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)

There is a supernatural strength and ability available to us when we place all our trust, hope and expectation in God. When we look to Jesus in all things, He enables us to do what we could not do on our own, and He will cause us to flourish and succeed in all He has called us to do.

Grace Builds Us Up (Acts 20:32)

And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

Acts 20:32 (KJV)

Grace will always build us up. Religion tends to be about what we must do in order to earn favor with God, whereas grace is all about what Jesus has already done for us. Each day our practice therefore must be to remind ourselves, to confess, and to thank God that He has already made available anything we might need. As we remember our identity in Christ—that we have been made righteous in Him—we open ourselves to receiving the inheritance grace has already provided.

Grace And Humility (James 4:6)

And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

James 4:6 (NLT)

As we receive the grace of God in Christ Jesus, we humble ourselves by removing ourselves from the center of our lives and making Jesus the center of our lives. Self-effort always springs out of pride, whereas grace flows out of this act of humility of totally surrendering our lives to the Lord Jesus. Today, let us humbly look to Jesus, depending completely on His grace as His Holy Spirit works in us, transforming us from the inside out.

Sanctified Through The Word (John 17:17)

Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

John 17:17 (KJV)

To be sanctified means to be set apart for God’s purposes.¬†We are sanctified through the Word because the more that we allow the Word of God to fill our hearts and minds, the more will our thinking and our words reflect the purposes of God. This is when we find that God’s purposes for us are to have victory and good success in every area of life.

Grace And Peace Multiplied (2 Peter 1:2)

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

2 Peter 1:2 (KJV)

The knowledge of God and the finished works of Jesus yields in an increase of grace and peace. The more we meditate on the truth that Jesus has done everything He needed to do to give us full and complete access to the riches and blessings of the kingdom, the greater becomes our peace in Him. This dissolves anxiety and feelings of doubt and unbelief, and we start to expect to see the manifestations of His goodness in our life.

The Father’s Good Pleasure (Luke 12:32)

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Luke 12:32 (KJV)

God is not reluctant when it comes to supplying our needs. In fact, it is His good pleasure to give the kingdom to His children. And so when we approach our Father, let us do so with boldness and confidence. Rather than being fearful, let us rejoice in faith; we may be certain that we will see God showing up mightily in our lives.

Overflowing With His Goodness (Ephesians 3:19)

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.

Grace And Peace Be Multiplied (2 Peter 1:2)

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

2 Peter 1:2 (KJV)

The knowledge of God and the finished works of Jesus yields in an increase of grace and peace. The more we meditate on the truth that Jesus has done everything He needed to do to make us righteous and to give us full and complete access to the blessings of the kingdom, the greater becomes our peace in Him. This dissolves anxiety and feelings of doubt and unbelief, and we start to expect to see the manifestations of His goodness in our life.

You Are Not Under The Law (Romans 6:14)

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. And so the law does exactly what it was designed to do: it keeps people in bondage to sin. 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, victorious and overcoming lives. And grace is not a curriculum or a doctrine; grace is a Person, His name is Jesus.

Super-Abundant Grace (1 Timothy 1:14)

And the grace (unmerited favor and blessing) of our Lord [actually] flowed out superabundantly and beyond measure for me, accompanied by faith and love that are [to be realized] in Christ Jesus.

1 Timothy 1:14 (AMP)

When we receive a revelation of God’s grace as His unmerited favor and blessing being made available to us superabundantly, our faith increases as a result as we come to recognize and embrace His indescribable love for us. Now, rather than working and performing to try to get God to bless us, we find ourselves resting in His love and in His finished works. And out from this place of rest we move ever more fully towards the manifestation of His promises in our lives.
