Meditate The Word (1 Timothy 4:15)

Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that they profiting may appear to all.

1 Timothy 4:15 (KJV)

To meditate means to think, ponder, consider, or mull over in our minds. Worrying is a negative form of meditation, and it will yield fruit accordingly. Yet when we meditate God’s Word, when we give ourselves wholly over to His promises, we become more receptive to seeing His goodness and glory coming to pass.

Christ Is Our Sufficiency (1 Corinthians 1:30)

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

1 Corinthians 1:30 (KJV)

Jesus has become our wisdom, our righteousness, our sanctification, and our redemption. And so let us remember to not look to ourselves, but to Him. Being in Christ means that He has become our sufficiency unto whatever need may arise. As we meditate daily on this truth, accepting it in our hearts by faith, we will see the fruits of it showing up in our lives.

Keeping Our Minds Filled With Truth (1 Peter 1:13)

Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 1:13 (ESV)

To be sober-minded is to be filled with what the Word declares over us. It is to keep our minds actively focused on the truth of God’s Word, and to be actively on guard against the lies and deceptions of the enemy that would seek to invade our thinking. Our confident expectation is set fully upon what the grace of God has made available to us in Christ Jesus.

Perfect Peace (Isaiah 26:3)

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Isaiah 26:3 (KJV)

Perfect peace is the kind of peace that cannot be shaken by circumstances. This is the kind of peace that comes from knowing whose we are and whom we have believed. Today, keep your mind stayed on Jesus. Trust Him, and let His perfect peace fill every fiber of your being.

Trust In God (Psalm 62:5-7)

My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

Psalm 62:5-7 (KJV)

When we place all our trust and expectation in the goodness and faithfulness of God, we will not be disappointed. While God often works through other people, let us remember always that He alone is the rock of our salvation and our strength.

Faith In The Power Of God (1 Corinthians 3:19)

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, he taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

1 Corinthians 3:19 (KJV)

Let us place our faith only in the power of God, and not in what we might consider the wisdom of this world. Worldly wisdom will oftentimes try and get us to doubt the promises of God, yet we are called to realize that no amount of worldly limitation can prevent us from receiving what God has already promised us in His Word.

Christ Is Our Sufficiency (1 Corinthians 1:30)

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

1 Corinthians 1:30 (KJV)

Jesus has become our wisdom, our righteousness, our sanctification, and our redemption. And so let us remember to not look to ourselves, but to Jesus. Being in Christ means that He has become our sufficiency unto whatever need may arise. As we meditate daily on this truth, accepting it in our hearts by faith, we will see the fruits of it showing up in our lives.

Secure In The Covenant Of His Peace (Isaiah 54:10)

For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

Isaiah 54:10 (KJV)

No mistake or shortcoming on our part can remove us from God’s covenant of peace. Knowing this frees us from the condemnation that came with the law, and it reminds us that the foundation for our right standing is never our own performance but the finished works of Jesus Christ. This enables us to grow in our walk with the Lord, and to always become more fully who He has created us to be.

Be Expectant In The Wilderness (Exodus 16:10)

And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud.

Exodus 16:10 (KJV)

Anytime we find ourselves looking toward the wilderness—facing situations and circumstances to which we do not know the answer—let us be expectant that the glory of God will appear in the midst of it! Those moments where it seems like there’s no solution in the natural are in actuality the greatest opportunities for God to show up and manifest His power in our lives.

Christ Is Our Sufficiency (1 Corinthians 1:30)

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

1 Corinthians 1:30 (KJV)

Jesus has become our wisdom, our righteousness, our sanctification, and our redemption. And so let us remember to not look to ourselves, but to Him. Being in Christ means that He has become our sufficiency unto whatever need may arise. As we meditate daily on this truth, accepting it in our hearts by faith, we will see the fruits of it showing up in our lives.
