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

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!

Faith Accesses What Grace Has Provided (Romans 5:2)

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 has made available anything we will ever need through the finished works of Jesus. Faith is how we access what grace has provided. And so let us embrace by faith that the solution to every challenge has already been provided. When we believe this and live out from it, we will see the evidence of it manifest in our life.

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.

You Are Living In God’s Favor (2 Corinthians 6:2)

Let us remember every day that we are living in God’s favor and that, as a result, everything we need has been made available to us. And so as we head into the new year, let’s approach it with the confidence that we can trust God to show Himself strong in all of the different areas of our life.

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

Psalm 115:15 (KJV)

God: The Source Of Our Provisions (Psalm 37:19)

They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

Psalm 37:19 (KJV)

When God has become our rock, our trust, and the source of our provisions, we need not be concerned with what may be happening in the world. We can rest confidently that all our needs shall be supplied regardless of how it may seem in the natural. It is this faith and confidence that enables God’s unmerited favor to manifest in the most unusual ways.

God Created You With A Purpose (Ephesians 1:11)

It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for.

Ephesians 1:11 (MSG)

As we grow in our understanding of our identity in Christ, we come to discover that God has created each of us with a unique purpose. The more we identify with how God sees us—righteous, healed, delivered, sound, equipped for every challenge—the more do we place ourselves into position for Holy Spirit to guide us into God’s purposes for our lives.

Instruments Of His Love (2 Thessalonians 3:5)

And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.

2 Thessalonians 3:5 (KJV)

As we place our trust in Jesus, Holy Spirit works in our hearts molding and shaping us more fully into becoming the instruments of His love. Key here is to understand and receive God’s perfect love for us; and the more we receive His perfect love, the more will His love become alive in our hearts and, ultimately, flow out through us.

The Greatest Gift (John 3:16)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 (KJV)

At the heart of Christmas lies this truth that God has already given us the greatest gift we could ever receive in bringing forth His Son into the world. By simply placing our faith in Jesus, we are delivered from everything that leads to destruction, and we receive the free gift of everlasting life. This life that Jesus came to give includes wholeness, peace, joy, soundness, safety, and every need met in spirit, soul and body.

Holy And Blameless Before Him (Ephesians 1:4)

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

Ephesians 1:4 (KJV)

In Christ we are holy and blameless before the Father in love, not because of our actions or performance, but as a result of having been made the sons and daughters of God. Now it is God’s love that compels us and enables us to live right. Chains are broken and darkness loses its grip over us, as guilt and condemnation are replaced with the goodness and mercy of God.
