Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Romans 8:37 (KJV)
Receiving the unconditional love of God in Christ Jesus makes us more than conquerors no matter what may be coming against us. It is never our self-effort or performance, but receiving His love and mercy that sets us up for success and victory in every area of life.
[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.
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.
Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
Psalm 143:10 (KJV)
God’s Spirit in us teaches us to do His will. He helps us to have a revelation of the love, the grace, and the goodness of God, which in turn empowers us to live victorious and godly lives. It is powerful to be led of the Holy Spirit into the land of uprightness.
It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
Psalm 18:32 (KJV)
God supplies us with strength and He leads us into His will for our lives as we trust Him and depend upon Him in all things. We limit God by trying to do things according to our own ways; yet when we trust in His leading and in the guidance of the Holy Spirit, He will make our way perfect.
I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.
1 John 2:12 (KJV)
In Christ we are not hoping that maybe God will forgive us someday, the truth is that forgiveness is already a finished work. All of our sins have been forgiven, and it is up to us to receive this gift by faith. This lifts the burden of condemnation, and it enables us to live in total victory.
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
1 Thessalonians 5:24 (KJV)
Whatever promise God has put in our hearts, we can confidently trust in His faithfulness. When we no longer believe we have to make things happen through our own efforts and struggles, but learn to rest in His faithfulness, we become receptive and available to seeing God’s miracle power working in and through our lives.
