As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.
Isaiah 59:21 (KJV)
God’s Word is to never depart from our mouth because our words release spiritual authority. Whatever we say long enough we will ultimately see. And so let us boldly say what God has said about us in His Word—He has already called us victorious!
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)
The grace of God works best when we acknowledge our need for Him, when we learn to trust in Him and depend on Him. When we stop relying on our own might, we will find He always supplies us with the strength, wisdom and ability to do what He has called us to do, and to walk in the victory He has already made available.
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
Ephesians 1:7 (KJV)
In Christ we have been forgiven of past, present and future sins. Regardless of where we may have fallen short or what our past may have looked like, the riches of His grace are more than sufficient to cleanse us from it all. Knowing our perfect redemption empowers us to live right and overcome in every arena of life!
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
John 17:3 (KJV)
We taste and enjoy the fulfillment, blessings and benefits of eternal life through having an intimate heart-knowledge of God which comes through receiving Jesus into our hearts. Eternal life can start right here and right now, and it includes being healed, redeemed and delivered from the darkness of the world.
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.
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.
