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.

Remember His Presence (Exodus 33:14)

And He said, “My Presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.”

Exodus 33:14 (NKJV)

When we remember God’s presence with us, there is a rest that comes even in the midst of turmoil. Keeping our minds and hearts stayed on the One who never leaves us enables us to be at peace regardless of any circumstances. Our peace is our most valuable asset and the more we rest in Him, the more will we see His supernatural ability showing up in our lives.

God Has Become Our Salvation (Psalm 118:21)

I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.

Psalm 118:21 (KJV)

We can always maintain an attitude of praise knowing that no matter where we find ourselves, God has become our salvation. Salvation includes wholeness, peace, deliverance, provisions, as well as physical and emotional healing. Regardless of circumstances, we can trust that these fruits of salvation will manifest in whatever way necessary.

Trust Your Unseen Partner (Zechariah 4:6)

Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

Zechariah 4:6 (KJV)

Victory is not accomplished in our own might, but by the Spirit of God working in and through us. Trust your unseen Partner who is the Holy Spirit—He will enable you to do what you cannot do on your own, and He will supply you with the strength, wisdom and ability you need.

Live In The Finished Works (Matthew 12:28)

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 12:28 (KJV)

Jesus gives us rest because when we enter into Christ, we enter into a finished work. The moment we put our faith in Jesus as Lord of our lives, all things pertaining to life and godliness are made available to us. Our task is not to struggle and to work hard to try and get God to bless us, but to live each day open and receptive for the blessings we already have in Him to manifest in our lives.

Enduring Faith (Hebrews 6:15)

And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.

Hebrews 6:15 (KJV)

To endure patiently means we keep our faith on the field—no matter what. We continue to believe that we have received, and we keep acting in faith. When we purpose in our hearts that we will believe God regardless of what it looks or feels like, we will come to see the manifestation of what grace has already made available.

God Makes Our Way Perfect (Psalm 18:32)

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 the guidance of the Holy Spirit, He will make our way perfect.

Hold Fast The Confession Of Your Faith (Hebrews 10:23)

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

Hebrews 10:23 (KJV)

To “profess” can also be translated to “confess.” We are to keep confessing our faith in the promises of God, our hearts assured by the fact that He who made the promise is faithful. So let our words be filled with faith, and let us declare boldly what God has said about us. He has called us to live victorious in every area of life!
