Remain Persistent (Galatians 6:9)

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Galatians 6:9 (KJV)

We are not fainting when we remain persistent in doing the right thing, even if it seems like nothing is happening. We maintain our confession of God’s Word, we believe that the finished works of Jesus Christ have already made available to us what we need, and we keep looking for opportunities to be a blessing. We may be certain that before long we will see the breakthroughs we have been looking for!

Perfect Redemption (Ephesians 1:7)

In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Ephesians 1:7 (KJV)

In Christ we have been forgiven of past, present and future sins. Regardless of where we may have fallen short or what our past may have looked like, the riches of His grace are more than sufficient to cleanse us from it all. Knowing our perfect redemption empowers us to live right and overcome in every arena of life!

Witness His Faithfulness (1 Corinthians 1:9)

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.

Confident Expectation Of Good (Proverbs 4:18)

But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

Proverbs 4:18 (KJV)

In Christ we can always have a confident expectation of good. As we open ourselves to the favor of God that is in Christ Jesus, we may be sure that—no matter whether we find ourselves in the valley or on the mountaintop—good things are always coming out way. Let us take hold of this promise and rejoice in the goodness of our God!

The Gift Of His Love (Romans 5:5)

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Romans 5:5 (KJV)

The love of God has been deposited in our hearts through the Holy Spirit dwelling on the inside of us. This means that as born again believers we have been gifted with the ability to love even the unlovable, and to extend grace rather than condemnation. Yet in order for us to do so we must first fully receive into our hearts God’s love for us. When we realize just how much He loves us—even to the point of sending His Son to die on a cross for us—we cannot help but extend His love to others!

The Gift Of Righteousness (Isaiah 61:10)

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.

Faith In The Finished Works (2 Peter 1:3)

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

2 Peter 1:3 (KJV)

Jesus, through His finished works, has already made available to us everything we will ever need—all things pertaining to life and godliness. And so anytime a difficulty or a challenge arises, let us declare boldly that Jesus has already taken care of it. One of the highest ways we can exercise our faith is to believe that because we are in Christ, no matter what it looks like in the natural, it shall always be well with us.

Our Strength Comes From Him (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)

The grace of God works best when we acknowledge our need for Him, when we learn to trust in Him and depend on Him. When we stop relying on our own might, we will find He always supplies us with the strength, wisdom and ability to do what He has called us to do, and to walk in the victory He has already made available.

Expect His Goodness (Colossians 1:27)

To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

Colossians 1:27 (KJV)

The word hope can also be translated confident expectation. Biblical hope is to look to the future with confidence and expectancy, always expecting God’s glory to manifest in our lives. And it is because of Christ in us—indwelling our born again spirit—that we can have this confidence that no matter what is going on in the natural, something good is happening to us today.

Live In The Finished Works (Matthew 12:28)

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 12:28 (KJV)

Jesus gives us rest because when we enter into Christ, we enter into a finished work. The moment we put our faith in Jesus as Lord of our lives, all things pertaining to life and godliness are made available to us. Our task as born again believers is not to struggle and to work hard to try and get God to bless us, but to live each day open and receptive for the blessings we already have in Him to manifest in our lives.
