Listen To The Holy Spirit (Romans 8:16)

The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,

Romans 8:16 (NKJV)

The Holy Spirit is continually whispering into our hearts that we are children of God, that we have His favor and blessing. The more we listen to the Holy Spirit who speaks to us through the Word of God, the less receptive will we be to the voices of fear, doubt, confusion or condemnation. Let us spend some time every day with the Holy Spirit as He guides us into all truth.

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.

God Is For You (Romans 8:31)

What shall we say then to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

Romans 8:31 (KJV)

Knowing that God is for us gives us a confidence and an assurance that, no matter the situation, victory has already been made available. We can now move forward with boldness, fully expectant that we will see the goodness of God showing up in our lives. There is not an obstacle in the world that can stop a Believer who knows their right standing with God as a result of the finished works of Jesus Christ!

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.

Identify With Who You Are In Christ (Galatians 5:16)

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

Galatians 5:16 (KJV)

To walk in the Spirit is ultimately a mindset. It is to identify with who we are in Christ rather than with who we used to be in the flesh. When we remember who we are in Him—redeemed, healed, blessed, forgiven and righteous—we gain victory over the fleshly mindset and walk in the good that Jesus has already made available.

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.

God Has A Calling For You (2 Timothy 1:9)

Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

2 Timothy 1:9 (KJV)

Every Believer has a call of God on their lives. Notice that our calling is not according to our works, but according to God’s purpose and grace. This means that, no matter what our past may have looked like or how unqualified we may feel, God has not only called us but graced us to step into His purposes for our lives.

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.

Motivated By His Love (John 15:12)

This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

John 15:12 (KJV)

Everything we do ought to be motivated by the love which we have first received from Jesus. As we come before God knowing He loves us just as we are, His love on the inside of us begins to transform us, and it will flow out through us into the world.

God Wants To Exceed Your Expectations (Ephesians 3:20)

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

Ephesians 3:20 (KJV)

When we walk in faith and trust God working on the inside of us, we may rest assured that He will lead us into the life He has purposed for us to live. God wants to exceed our expectations and do above what we can ask or think.
