Knowing God (John 17:3)

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)

Salvation at its very core is to know God. As we live in intimate fellowship with Jesus through letting His Word abide in our hearts, we will see the fruits of salvation showing up in our lives. The fruits of salvation include healing, deliverance, soundness, godly prosperity and peace.

God Makes Our Way Perfect (Psalm 18:32)

It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.

Psalm 18:32 (KJV)

God supplies us with strength and He leads us into His will for our lives as we trust Him and depend upon Him in all things. We limit God by trying to do things according to our own ways; yet when we trust in His leading and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, He will make our way perfect.

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.

The Spirit Of God In Us (Romans 8:15)

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

Romans 8:15 (KJV)

It is the Spirit of God in our spirit that draws us unto God, that enables us to fellowship with Him. And so let us approach Him as He truly is: our loving heavenly Father whose good pleasure it is to give us the kingdom. May we give up any fear or feelings of condemnation, and not doubt for one second that it is God’s will for us to be whole in every area of our lives.

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.

Nothing Can Separate Us From Him (John 10:28)

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

John 10:28 (KJV)

No one and nothing can ever separate us from the love of God. We have been joined unto Christ for eternity, and no amount of mistakes or shortcomings on our part can undo this union. Our role is to receive His precious gift of righteousness, and all that comes with it, by faith.

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.

You Are Light In The Lord (Ephesians 5:8-9)

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth),

Ephesians 5:8-9 (NKJV)

We have been set free from darkness, and we have been made light in the Lord. Remembering our identity in Christ becomes the foundation for strong and mature faith. As we simply trust in who Jesus has made us to be, we will see the fruits of the Spirit manifesting in our life.

In His Presence (Psalm 16:11)

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Psalm 16:11 (KJV)

Getting in the presence of God through His Word, worship, praise, prayer and simply talking with Him, takes us to a place of joy that is independent of any circumstances. Out of this fellowship with God that is available to all will come wisdom and revelation to guide us on the path of life.
