Depend On The Holy Spirit (John 14:17)

Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

John 14:17 (KJV)

The Holy Spirit is the spirit of truth. He makes the truths of the Word of God real to us, He confirms the reality of the Word to our heart. We are called to live in complete dependence upon the Holy Spirit as He enables us and equips us to do what we cannot do in our own strength. Let’s fellowship and commune with Him daily, and draw on His strength, wisdom and ability as He works on the inside of us.

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 stand firmly and securely upon His righteousness.

Giving Glory To God Through Thanksgiving (2 Corinthians 4:15)

For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.

2 Corinthians 4:15 (NKJV)

The more we receive a revelation of the depth and the magnitude of the grace of God, the more will gratitude increase in our lives. A lifestyle of thanksgiving gives glory to God, and God’s glory always shows itself in and through the lives of His people as the manifestations of His grace, favor and goodness.

Set Free From Darkness (John 12:46)

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; our believing on Him is how we take possession of what has been provided.

Not Ruled By Our Emotions (Psalm 107:22)

And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.

Psalm 107:22 (KJV)

Thanksgiving becomes a sacrifice anytime we go against our emotions. When we refuse to allow negative emotions to rule us, and instead focus on the goodness of God and the many things we may thank Him for, we are offering up the sacrifices of thanksgiving. A grateful heart will lead to a heart filled with joy, and out of a joy-filled heart we find ourselves declaring God’s goodness over our lives.

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)

The Bible tells us that 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 saturateĀ 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.

Filled With His Joy (John 15:11)

These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

John 15:11 (KJV)

As we put our trust in Jesus, let us remember that His desire for us is that we are filled with His joy. There should be great joy in our walk with the Lord, for no matter what we face in the area of circumstances and conditions, we are joined to Him who has overcome the world. And as we abide in Him, we get to partake in that overcoming!

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.
