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.

This Is The Lord’s Doing (Psalm 118:23)

This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.

Psalm 118:23 (KJV)

God wants to exceed our expectations as we trust Him and believe He will do what no one else can do. And when the promise shows up, it will be obvious that it was not of our own doing. All we will be able to say is, “This is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes!”

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, all things pertaining to life and godliness are made available to us. Our role 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.

God Leads Us By The Right Way (Psalm 107:7)

And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.

Psalm 107:7 (KJV)

God will always lead us by the right way. When we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, He will lead us in the way of God’s perfect will for us. Our role is to trust Him and to follow His promptings. And the will of God for us is to see His goodness and His favor coming to pass in our lives.

The Gift Of His Peace (John 14:27)

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.

Enduring Faith (Hebrews 6:15)

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

Hebrews 6:15 (KJV)

To patiently endure simply 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.

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 as born again believers 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.

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.
