Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;
Psalm 106:4 (KJV)
When we receive salvation through placing our faith in the finished works of Jesus, we enter into the unmerited favor of God. This means that the blessing is on our lives, not because of our works or our efforts, but because of our faith and trust in Jesus.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 14:27 (KJV)
Jesus has already given us the gift of His peace. We received His peace when we received Him, and we access His peace as we keep our minds and hearts filled with His Word. And so rather than allowing circumstances to dictate where our attention goes, let us purpose in our hearts to focus on the One who is our peace. We will find ourselves walking in His wisdom and guidance in any given situation.
But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
1 Thessalonians 4:9 (KJV)
God indwelling us by His Holy Spirit compels us to want to love one another. As we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit who is at work in us, we will find ourselves being led more fully into living a life of love, kindness and compassion as we receive God’s love for us in Christ.
Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
Psalm 68:19 (KJV)
We can expect to be loaded with the benefits of salvation every day. In Christ God’s unmerited favor has been made available to us, and so we can always live in confident expectation that something good is going to happen regardless of any circumstances or conditions. The benefits of salvation include healing, deliverance, peace of mind and heart, and all of our needs being supplied abundantly.
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.
