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

“In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.

2 Corinthians 6:2 (NIV)

The moment we received salvation through receiving Jesus as Savior and Lord, we entered into the favor of God. Let us remember every day that we are now living in God’s favor and that, as a result, everything we need has been made available to us. We can trust God to show Himself strong in the different areas of our life.

Remember His Goodness (Psalm 143:5)

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!

Trust In The Finished Works (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 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.

Secure In The Covenant Of His Peace (Isaiah 54:10)

For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

Isaiah 54:10 (KJV)

No mistake or shortcoming on our part can remove us from God’s covenant of peace. Knowing this frees us from the condemnation that came with the law, and it reminds us that the foundation for our right standing is never our own performance but the finished works of Jesus Christ. This enables us to grow in our walk with the Lord, and to always become more fully who He has created us to be.

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.

Set Your Mind On Heavenly Realities (Colossians 3:2-3)

Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

Colossians 3:2-3 (NKJV)

We set our minds on heavenly realities through the Word of God. It is the daily renewing of the mind in the Word that makes us open, receptive and available for everything that has become true about us in Christ to manifest as our day to day 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 made available. When we believe this and live out from it, we will see the evidence of it manifesting in our life.

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.

Receive The Blessing (Acts 3:26)

Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

Acts 3:26 (KJV)

God has sent Jesus into the world to bless us. To be blessed means to be empowered to prosper. And so all of us who have received Jesus have received the blessing, and as a result of being in Christ we are now set up to overcome and have victory in every arena of life. The blessing is a gift of God’s grace, and it starts working in our life as we receive it and walk in it by faith.
