The Power Of Being Thankful (Psalm 100:4)

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Psalm 100:4 (KJV)

When we realize that there is always something to thank God for, we will naturally find ourselves giving Him praise. Even in the midst of a challenge or a difficult time, we can thank God that He has already provided the way out. When we know our God and His goodness, we really cannot help but be thankful.

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.

God Is Working In You (Isaiah 26:12)

Lord, You will establish peace for us, For You have also done all our works in us.

Isaiah 26:12 (NKJV)

The more we can trust in God’s Spirit working in us, the more will we find ourselves at peace. We come to find that in all we are called to do, it is really God working in us—always in proportion to our faith—who enables us to walk in victory and to live the overcoming life.

Let The Redeemed Of The Lord Say So (Psalm 107:2)

Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;

Psalm 107:2 (KJV)

As the redeemed of the Lord we are to say with boldness that we have been set free from any and all forms of bondage. When we confess our redemption and the finished works of Christ, we are releasing our faith to lay hold of the victory that has already been made available.

Rejoice In The Lord (Philippians 4:4)

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!

Philippians 4:4 (NKJV)

There is empowerment that comes when we make the decision to rejoice in the Lord. We are not moved by circumstances because our fellowship with Jesus has become the source of our joy! When we walk in His joy we walk in His completeness, and out of this supernatural breakthroughs can take place. 

You Were Created For The Glory Of God (Isaiah 43:7)

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 have been created for the glory of God, to be vessels and instruments through which God’s goodness can manifest in this world. Our greatest fulfillment comes when we fully yield ourselves to the Spirit of God in us who has called us into a magnificent purpose and destiny.

Let The Redeemed Of The Lord Say So (Psalm 107:2)

Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;

Psalm 107:2 (KJV)

As the redeemed of the Lord we are to say with boldness that we have been set free from any and all forms of bondage. When we confess our redemption and the finished works of Christ, we are releasing our faith to lay hold of the victory that has already been made available.

The Holy Spirit Guarantees Our Success (2 Corinthians 1:22)

[He has also appropriated and acknowledged us as His by] putting His seal upon us and giving us His [Holy] Spirit in our hearts as the security deposit and guarantee [of the fulfillment of His promise].

2 Corinthians 1:22 (AMP)

The Holy Spirit is God’s security deposit! This means it is actually the Holy Spirit’s job to guarantee that God’s purposes for our lives will come to pass. And so what is required of us is that we learn to live lives of complete dependence on Him where we no longer rely on our own efforts and performance, but we trust the unfailing working of the Spirit of grace in us.

Super-Abundant Grace (1 Timothy 1:14)

And the grace (unmerited favor and blessing) of our Lord [actually] flowed out superabundantly and beyond measure for me, accompanied by faith and love that are [to be realized] in Christ Jesus.

1 Timothy 1:14 (AMPC)

When we receive a revelation of God’s grace as His unmerited favor and blessing, our faith increases as we come to recognize and embrace His love for us. Rather than performing to try to get God to bless us, we find ourselves resting in His love and in His finished works. And out from this place we move ever more fully towards the manifestation of His promises.

You Were Created For The Glory Of God (Isaiah 43:7)

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 have been created for the glory of God. This means our purpose is to be vessels and instruments through which God’s goodness can manifest in this world. We live not for ourselves, but for Him who lives in us and has called us into a magnificent purpose and destiny.
