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.
Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.
Isaiah 43:7 (KJV)
We were created for the glory of God. This means our purpose as Believers is so that we may be vessels and instruments through which God’s goodness can manifest in this world. We live not for ourselves, but for Him who has called us into a magnificent purpose and destiny.
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.

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!
What shall we say then to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
Romans 8:31 (KJV)
Knowing that God is for us gives us a confidence and an assurance that, no matter the situation, victory has already been made available. We can now move forward with boldness, fully expectant that we will see the goodness of God showing up in our lives. There is not an obstacle in the world that can stop a Believer who knows their right standing with God as a result of the finished works of Jesus Christ!
Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
Psalm 116:7 (KJV)
Our soul is at rest when we are confident that God is handling everything that concerns us. We rest in our confidence that God has already made available what we need, and out of this assurance will we see His goodness showing up in our lives. God works when we are at a place of peace.
