Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
Psalm 68:19 (KJV)
We can expect to be loaded with the benefits of salvation every day. In Christ God’s unmerited favor has been made available to us, and so we can always live in confident expectation that something good is going to happen regardless of any circumstances or conditions. The benefits of salvation include healing, deliverance, peace of mind and heart, and all of our needs being supplied abundantly.
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
1 John 4:7-9 (KJV)
Everything God has done for us through the finished works of Jesus is rooted in His perfect love for us. To know and experience the love of God, we look to Jesus and receive the fullness of what His grace has made available. In this we will find ourselves blessed and being a blessing.
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:18 (NKJV)
The more we behold Jesus through the Word, the more are we transformed into His image. As we seek His will in all of the areas of our life, we will find ourselves being led from glory to glory through the wisdom and counsel of the Holy Spirit.
For we are fellow workmen (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God; you are God’s garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, [you are] God’s building.
1 Corinthians 3:9 (AMP)
Every believer has an assignment from God, we have a role to play when it comes to God fulfilling His plans and purposes in this earth realm. And as we yield to God’s plans and purposes for our life, we are shaped and developed in the process, the Holy Spirit working in us to make us more fully into all He has called us to be.
Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
Zechariah 4:6 (KJV)
Supernatural breakthroughs in our lives happen, not because of our might or effort, but because of our dependence and reliance upon the Holy Spirit who is the spirit of grace. The more we trust His leading and His guiding, knowing He is always working on our behalf, the more will we find ourselves walking into the manifestations of God’s unmerited favor.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
Philippians 4:6 (NKJV)
It takes a daily training of the mind to rid ourselves from the unproductive habit of worry, and instead take our needs and requests to God in simple and childlike faith. And so whatever need may arise, let us receive by faith the supply, the deliverance or the healing that God by His grace has already set before us.

And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
Mark 10:52 (KJV)
Faith is what enables God’s glory to be made manifest in our lives. While the grace of God through the finished works of Jesus has already made available anything we need, it is our faith that takes possession of it. And so when we approach God, let us do so with boldness and confidence, knowing in our hearts that our Father is ready to freely provide all that is needed. There are no limits to those who will approach God with bold and confident faith.
I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
John 12:46 (KJV)
Jesus has come to set us free from darkness. Believing on Him supplies us with the power and ability to break free from the bondage of sin, sickness, poverty and depression, and to lay hold boldly of the victory He has made available. His finished works have provided what we need, us believing on Him is how we take possession of what has been provided.
As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.
Isaiah 59:21 (KJV)
God’s Word is to never depart from our mouth because our words release spiritual authority. Whatever we say long enough we will ultimately see. And so let us boldly say what God has said about us in His Word—He has already called us victorious!
