Available To True Prosperity (Job 9:4)

God is wise in heart and mighty in strength. Who has hardened himself against Him and prospered?

Job 9:4 (NKJV)

A heart hardened towards God is a heart that has become cold and unresponsive towards His goodness, His ways and His promises. Yet as our heart is softened towards Him through His Word, we become available to true prosperity. And true prosperity is defined as success, wholeness and peace in every area of life with nothing lacking and nothing missing.

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.

Light Unto The Upright (Psalm 112:4)

Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

Psalm 112:4 (KJV)

We are upright in the eyes of God through our faith in Jesus. As a result darkness has lost its power over us, and even in the midst of challenges and opposition there will be light. We may rely fully upon the gracious and compassionate nature of our heavenly Father, and we may stand firmly and securely upon His righteousness.

Wisdom And Revelation (Ephesians 1:17-18)

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

Ephesians 1:17-18 (KJV)

May we always seek God for wisdom and revelation. Let us never get too familiar with the things of God, for we serve a God who is continually looking to take us to new places in our walk with Him. The more we have a revelation of the riches and glory of what Jesus has made available to us, the more will we rejoice in what the Apostle Paul called the hope of His calling.

Available To True Prosperity (Job 9:4)

God is wise in heart and mighty in strength. Who has hardened himself against Him and prospered?

Job 9:4 (NKJV)

A heart hardened towards God is a heart that has become cold and unresponsive towards His goodness, His ways and His promises. Yet as our heart is softened towards Him through His Word, we become available to true prosperity. And true prosperity is defined as success, wholeness and peace in every area of life with nothing lacking and nothing missing.

Rejoice In The Lord (Philippians 4:4)

Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice!

Philippians 4:4 (AMP)

What a blessing to know that we can continually delight ourselves in the Lord regardless of any circumstances and conditions! When we delight and gladden ourselves in Him, we consider His tremendous love for us. We allow this love to become a reality in our hearts, to take us over and saturate us as we meditate on His unmerited favor and the promises of victory we have in Him. This causes us to truly rejoice; and as a result, we are in a state of expecting to see His goodness and His favor showing up in our lives.

Walking In His Presence (Psalm 16:11)

Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Psalm 16:11 (KJV)

When we look to Jesus and faithfully walk with Him, He will lead us up the path of life. We discover in His presence a joy that cannot be taken away by the world, we will find the pleasures that come from knowing who we are in Him and what He has called us to do.

Speak Words Of Life (1 Peter 3:10-11)

For he who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit. Let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.

1 Peter 3:10-11 (NKJV)

If we want to love life and see good days, we cannot speak words of evil or deceit. Our words reflect what is in our heart, and so as we deliberately fill our hearts with God’s Word, as we allow the love of Jesus to saturate¬†us, we will find our words naturally coming into alignment with life and peace. Today, let us be mindful of this tremendous power that lies in our tongue, and let us purpose in our hearts to only speak words of life.

The World Has Been Overcome (John 16:33)

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

John 16:33 (KJV)

There is a continual peace available to us in Christ. Though the world may be filled with challenges, let us remember that Jesus has already overcome the world. And as we abide in Him, we get to partake in that overcoming. We abide in Him through His Word and through His Spirit, knowing that regardless of circumstances and conditions, the the victory has already been won. When we live in this faith-filled state of heart, we will have peace and be filled with joy.

Consider Heavenly Realities (Colossians 3:2-3)

Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

Colossians 3:2-3 (NKJV)

In order for us to live out of who we are in Christ, we are called to set our thoughts on the things above. We are called to consider heavenly realities by filling our hearts and minds with the Word of God. It is this daily renewing of the mind in the Word that makes us open, receptive and available to everything that has become true about us in Christ. It enables the wholeness, the peace of mind, the fulfillment and provision that is hidden in Him to become manifest as the day to day realities of our life.
