He Freely Gives Us All Things (Romans 8:32)

He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Romans 8:32 (KJV)

Consider the greatness of God’s love in that He did not hesitate to give His beloved Son to the world so that we through Him might have life. Now the Holy Spirit asks through the Apostle Paul, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? And of course the implication is that a love so great withholds absolutely nothing! Friends, let us be glad in knowing that God in Christ Jesus has freely made available anything we need. Our task each day is to receive His love, to walk in His love, and by faith take hold of what His grace has already provided.

Casting Down Wrong Thinking (2 Corinthians 10:4-5)

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (KJV)

Each day we are called to get our thoughts aligned with God’s thoughts. Rather than accepting whatever thought comes to us, let us be quick to check it against the Word of God. If it does not line up with what God has to say, our task becomes to cast it down and replace it with the truth of God’s Word. As we consistently cast down wrong thinking, changing our perceptions to see more as God sees, we are opening ourselves to a greater inflow of God’s peace and wisdom in our lives.

The Full Benefits Of Salvation (Hebrews 6:9)

But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.

Hebrews 6:9 (KJV)

Notice that the Word says there are things that accompany salvation. Salvation not only affects our eternity, but it is to also powerfully impact our life right here and right now. The moment we receive Jesus as Lord we are to embark on a journey that will forever change our life for the better. The way we receive the full benefits of salvation is through placing our trust and faith in Him through His Word. This makes us receptive to the promises of God which include healing, deliverance, soundness, peace, protection and provision.

Humility Leads To Success (Matthew 23:11-12)

But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whosoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

Matthew 23:11-12 (NKJV)

God’s ways are in direct opposition to the ways of the world. And so the kingdom path to success begins with humility. In all that we are called to do we never seek to exalt ourselves, but much rather are we to realize that we have been simply called to serve. Maintaining this servant attitude assures we do not lose perspective, and God has promised that those who set their hearts to follow His ways, in due time, will be exalted.

Maintaining A Grateful Heart (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV)

God’s will for us is that we always maintain a grateful heart. Notice that the Word says we are to give thanks in all things, not for all things. This means in all circumstances and conditions—whether they be good or bad—we can be grateful. In fact, practicing gratitude in the midst of adersity is a powerful statement of faith which says that we know that we have already been given the victory in Christ. And so whether we are on the mountaintop or in the valley, let us be thankful as we look to everything God has provided for us by His grace.

The Power Of Words (Proverbs 18:21)

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Proverbs 18:21 (KJV)

The words we speak are so powerful they will determine whether what we bring about is life or death, victory or defeat. Speaking words of fear and unbelief will yield fruit accordingly, whereas words of faith enable God’s promises to come to pass in our life. God in His great love has given us authority in this earth realm, and one of the ways we excercise¬†this authority is through the words we speak. Speak God’s Word, and be expectant for His goodness to show up in your life!

Instruments And Vessels Of God’s Glory (John 11:4)

When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

John 11:4 (KJV)

A profound truth is revealed in the words of Jesus, that sickness—or any other form of hardship—is not unto death, but it is to become a means whereby which the glory of God may be made manifest for all to see. God’s glory is never revealed separate and apart from His people. It is the will of our heavenly Father that His glory be made manifest in and through His people, that we be the instruments and vessels of His glory. And so whether it be sickness, lack, anxiety, or anything else, God wants to use our challenge to manifest His glory. This means healing, deliverance, provision, soundness and protection.

Our Sufficiency Is From God (2 Corinthians 3:4-5)

And we have such trust through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God.

2 Corinthians 3:4-5 (NKJV)

To walk in the victory that has been made available to us, we must let this principle deeply take root in our hearts: our sufficiency is not from ourselves! Worldly wisdom teaches us to rely on ourselves—be it our own understanding, our own level of education, our past experiences, our own resources—whereas godly wisdom reveals the futility of any such approach when it comes to the things God has called us to do. When we rely on ourselves, we will always bump into limitations; yet when we rely on God, we open ourselves to a life that surpasses natural limitations. God does not want His children to be limited by the things of this world, and so let us be sure that our trust and our reliance are in Him.

The Importance Of Renewing The Mind (Romans 12:2)

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will, of God.

Romans 12:2 (KJV)

The most important thing after getting born again is the renewing of the mind. When we renew our mind in the Word, we are bringing our thoughts into alignment with God’s thoughts. We are learning to no longer speak the words of the world, but to boldly proclaim the Word of God. Scripture tells us that it is through the renwing of the mind that we prove what God’s will for us is. To prove it is to see it made manifest. I can believe that God’s will for me is to prosper and be victorious in every sphere of life, yet the only way I can prove it is to see it come about in my life. And so let us remember the importance of renewing our mind daily, of getting into agreement with all that God has said is true about us in Christ.

He Freely Gives Us All Things (Romans 8:32)
