Confident To Rest (Psalm 116:7)

Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

Psalm 116:7 (KJV)

Our soul returns to its rest when we are confident that God is handling everything that concerns us. We rest in our confidence that God has already made available what we need, and out of this quiet assurance will we see His goodness showing up in our lives. God works when we are at a place of peace.

Led Of The Holy Spirit (Psalm 143:10)

Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.

Psalm 143:10 (KJV)

God’s spirit in us teaches us to do His will. He helps us to have a revelation of the love, the grace, and the goodness of God, which in turn empowers us to live victorious and godly lives. It is powerful to be led of the Holy Spirit into the land of uprightness.

Pray With Confidence (1 John 5:14)

This is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us.

1 John 5:14 (KJV)

The will of God is revealed through the Word of God. And so let us approach our heavenly Father with the confidence that as we pray according to His will, it is His good pleasure to give us the kingdom. God is withholding no good thing from us, and He is looking for each of us to be instruments and vessels through which His glory may manifest on earth as it is in heaven.

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. While the law was about what we had to do in order to earn favor with God, 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 His unmerited favor has already been made available to us. 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.

Know Who You Are (Galatians 5:16)

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

Galatians 5:16 (KJV)

Walking in the Spirit begins with right identification. We learn to identify with who we are in Christ rather than with who we used to be in the flesh. Jesus through His finished works has made us one hundred percent righteous in Him. When this becomes the reality of our hearts, it becomes the standard by which we live. Right believing and right identification leads to right living.

Mix The Word With Faith (Hebrews 4:2)

For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

Hebrews 4:2 (KJV)

The gospel is the good news of God’s unmerited favor in Christ Jesus. In order for it to profit us, we must mix the Word with faith. Mixing the Word with faith means we accept the Word as true even when our situation and our circumstances contradict it. We accept that through the finished works of Jesus we were healed, delivered, redeemed, empowered and prospered. And the highest form of believing is to enter into rest, to have a peace that cannot be shaken.
