If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
James 1:5 (NKJV)
Wisdom is the ability to use knowledge rightly. It is a grace gift from God and it is freely available to us. Trust today that with the Holy Spirit’s help you will know what to do at all times as you walk in God’s perfect will for your life.
I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your works; I muse on the work of Your hands.
Psalm 143:5 (NKJV)
It is powerful to bring to our remembrance all that God has already done. When we meditate on how good God has been to us in the past, it raises our expectation for the future. Let’s never take for granted how far He has brought us, and rejoice in anticipation of the good that is to come!
And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately.
Acts 9:34 (KJV)
A key to receiving healing is this truth: Jesus is the one who makes us whole! This means we must know that sickness is not of God, but that God is the Healer. When we stand on this with confidence and with expectancy, we open ourselves to seeing supernatural healing in our lives and in the lives of people we are called to pray for.
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)
As we deliberately fill our hearts with God’s Word and as we allow the love of Jesus to saturate us, we will find our words coming into alignment with life and peace. Let us be mindful of the tremendous power of our tongue, and let us purpose in our hearts to speak only words of life.
By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:
Romans 1:5 (KJV)
Obedience in the new covenant is obedience to the faith. Rather than trying to live by the law, our obedience is our commitment to right believing. We are obedient when we believe what God says about us which enables the Holy Spirit to work on the inside of us, shaping us more fully into who God has called us to be.
Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto thee receive in thine heart, and hear with thine ears.
Ezekiel 3:10 (KJV)
God is telling us to let His Words take root in our hearts. As we hear the Word, meditate on it and speak it out loud, we are receiving it into our hearts. And the supernatural power of the Word of God becomes apparent once it has become a living reality in the heart of a Believer!
By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Romans 5:2 (KJV)
Grace is the revelation that God through Jesus has already made available everything we will ever need. Faith is how we access what grace has provided. And so let us rejoice that we can trust confidently in the finished works of Jesus, and be expectant for His goodness to show up in our lives.
