Agree With The Word (Proverbs 30:5)

Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

Proverbs 30:5 (KJV)

Putting our trust in God means trusting in His Word. Each day we get to choose to either agree with the word of man or with the Word of God. Let us be sure to agree with what God’s Word declares about us in Christ, and we will see as it proves itself to be true in our lives.

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.

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.

Rest In His Faithfulness (1 Thessalonians 5:24)

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.

Supernatural Strength & Ability (Isaiah 40:31)

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)

There is a supernatural strength and ability available to us when we place all our trust, expectation and confidence in God. When we look to Jesus in all things, He enables us to do what we could not do on our own, and He will cause us to flourish and succeed in all He has called us to do.

The Father’s Good Pleasure (Luke 12:32)

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Luke 12:32 (KJV)

God is not reluctant when it comes to supplying our needs. In fact, it is His good pleasure to give us the kingdom. And so when we approach our heavenly Father, let us do so with boldness. We can be confident we will see God showing up mightily in our lives.

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, let us be expectant that the glory of God will appear in the midst of it! Those moments in which we do not see how something might happen in the natural are in actuality the greatest opportunities for God to show up and manifest His power in our lives.

Trust God (Psalm 34:8)

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

Psalm 34:8 (KJV)

We taste and come to know the goodness of God through our intimate fellowship with Him. The more time we spend in His presence through worship, prayer, praise and His Word, the more do we find that we can trust God with all of the areas of our lives. And out from this trust is birthed a life that leads from victory to victory.

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 Jesus. Being in Christ means that He has become our sufficiency unto whatever need may arise.
