Keeping Our Minds Filled With Truth (1 Peter 1:13)

Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 1:13 (ESV)

To be sober-minded is to be filled with what the Word declares over us. It is to keep our minds actively focused on the truth of God’s Word, and to be actively on guard against the lies and deceptions of the enemy that would seek to invade our thinking. Our confident expectation is set fully upon what the grace of God has made available to us in Christ Jesus.

Start The Day Right (Psalm 5:3)

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

Psalm 5:3 (KJV)

How we start our day will usually determine how it will go. When we make it our practice to turn to God first thing in the morning, when we set aside quiet time for prayer, reading and meditating the Word, we tend to find ourselves living in a greater sense of His presence all throughout the day. And so let us start the day right, seeking God’s will and direction, and reflecting upon what His Word has declared over us.

Be Fed By His Word (1 Peter 2:2-3)

As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

1 Peter 2:2-3 (KJV)

The Word of God is the spiritual food for our born again spirit. Just as we require physical food in order to be physically strengthened, so too our recreated spirit requires spiritual food in order to become strong within us. And so let us be fed and nourished by His Word daily, and in so doing may we taste of the joy and the fullness of life that is in Him.

Forget Not All His Benefits (Psalm 103:2-4)

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

Psalm 103:2-4 (KJV)

The benefits of salvation include healing, redemption from all forms of destruction—physically, emotionally and spiritually—as well as total and complete access to every promise of scripture. As we meditate on and confess this truth daily, thereby reminding our soul, we are making way for God’s goodness and glory to manifest in and through our lives.

According To His Word (Luke 1:37-38)

For with God nothing shall be impossible. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.

Luke 1:37-38 (KJV)

This is the attitude we are to have when it comes to the promises of God: “May it be unto us according to Your Word.” When it comes to the various areas of our life, may it be unto us according to His Word. As we allow the Word to enter into our hearts in faith, we are planting seeds and watering them. The seed of the Word sown into the good ground of a receptive heart will yield a rich harvest of manifestation.

Feed Your Recreated Spirit (Matthew 4:4)

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Matthew 4:4 (KJV)

We do not live by bread alone because there is more to us than our physical bodies. Just as our body requires physical food, so too our recreated spirit requires spiritual food. We are being fed spiritually anytime we receive the Word of God, when we meditate on it and take it into our hearts. The more that our spirit is fed, the stronger our spirit becomes. And when our spirit is strong, our ability to be victorious over the flesh increases.

Start The Day Right (Psalm 5:3)

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

Psalm 5:3 (KJV)

How we start our day will usually determine how it will go. When we make it our practice to turn to God first thing in the morning, when we set aside quiet time for prayer, reading and meditating the Word, we tend to find ourselves living in a greater sense of His presence all throughout the day. And so let us start the day right, seeking God’s will and direction, and reflecting upon what His Word has declared over us.

Be Fed By His Word (1 Peter 2:2-3)

As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

1 Peter 2:2-3 (KJV)

The Word of God is the spiritual food for our born again spirit. Just as we require physical food in order to be physically strengthened, so too our recreated spirit requires spiritual food in order to become strong within us. And so let us be fed and nourished by His Word, and may we taste of the joy and the fullness of life that is in Him.

Abide In Him (John 15:3)

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

John 15:4 (KJV)

We abide in Jesus through abiding in His Word. As we mediate on the Word of God and what it says about us in Christ, old strongholds are broken, worldly beliefs and perceptions are dissolved, and we become more fully receptive to all that God is seeking to do in and through our lives. Each of us are called to bear much fruit in His name; let us be sure to abide in the vine.
