Our Ability Is From God (2 Corinthians 3:5)

Not that we are fit (qualified and sufficient in ability) of ourselves to form personal judgments or to claim or count anything as coming from us, but our power and ability and sufficiency are from God.

2 Corinthians 3:5 (AMPC)

There is strength and empowerment that comes when we no longer rely on our own sufficiency or ability, but instead put all our trust and confidence in God. We succeed, not because of our efforts or qualifications, but because it is God who has called us and who makes us well able to do what He has called us to do.

Remember The Blessing (Psalm 115:15)

Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.

Psalm 115:15 (KJV)

To be blessed means to be empowered to prosper and excel. When we remember that we have the blessing of God, we cannot help but live in an earnest expectation that we will see His goodness and favor showing up in every area of our life!

You Are Light In The Lord (Ephesians 5:8-9)

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth),

Ephesians 5:8-9 (NKJV)

We have been set free from darkness and we have been made light in the Lord. Remembering our identity in Christ becomes the foundation for strong and mature faith, and as a result we will see the fruits of the Spirit manifesting in our life.

Confident To Rest (Psalm 116:7)

Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

Psalm 116:7 (KJV)

We are 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.

Renew The Mind (Romans 12:2)

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will, of God.

Romans 12:2 (KJV)

When we renew our minds, we replace our thoughts with the thoughts of God, and we exchange our words for the Word of God. The more that we bring our thoughts and words into agreement with God’s Word, the more will we prove God’s good, acceptable and perfect will for us. And the way we prove it is to live it, to see it made manifest in our day to day lives.

Speak God’s Word (Proverbs 16:24)

Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Proverbs 16:24 (KJV)

The words we speak can either be pleasant to our soul and bring health to our physical bodies, or similarly our words can bring about sorrow and even sickness. Let us be in the habit of speaking God’s Word over our lives, over the people we encounter, and over situations and circumstances. God’s Word will always bring joy to our souls, and He always confirms His Word with signs and manifestations following.

Perfect Peace (Isaiah 26:3)

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Isaiah 26:3 (KJV)

Perfect peace is the kind of peace that cannot be shaken by circumstances and conditions. This is the kind of peace that comes from knowing whose we are and whom we have believed. Today, keep your mind stayed on God; trust Him, and let His perfect peace fill every fiber of your being.

Seek The Will Of God With Joy (Psalm 40:16)

Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.

Psalm 40:16 (KJV)

Seeking the will of God for our life is not a burdensome task, nor is it something that will put us in a place of sorrow. In fact, the greatest joy and and the greatest fulfillment lie in seeking and fulfilling God’s purposes for our lives. So let us magnify the Lord with joy in our hearts! He is our sufficiency, and He will always supply us everything we need to do what He’s called us to do.

Speak God’s Word (Proverbs 16:24)

Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Proverbs 16:24 (KJV)

The words we speak can either be pleasant to our soul and bring health to our physical bodies, or similarly our words can bring about sorrow and even sickness. Let us be in the habit of speaking God’s Word over our lives, over the people we encounter, and over situations and circumstances. God’s Word will always bring joy to our souls, and He always confirms His Word with signs and manifestations following.

Live In The Light Of Christ (Ephesians 5:14)

Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

Ephesians 5:14 (KJV)

When Christ gives us light we awaken to our identity in Him and we see that everything we need has already been made available by the grace of God. This year, determine to live in complete confidence in God’s purposes for your life, and as you trust, lean, and depend on the Holy Spirit working in you and through you, He will take you to places that exceed your imaginings.
