Meditate On 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)

Whatever we meditate on the most will yield fruit in our lives. 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 on God’s Word, when we give ourselves wholly over to His promises and what He has said is true about us in Him, we become more receptive to seeing His goodness and glory coming to pass.

Claim The Promises Of God (2 Corinthians 1:20)

For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.

2 Corinthians 1:20 (NKJV)

In Christ we have been given the right, by grace, to claim all of the promises of God in scripture. In other words, because Jesus has become our righteousness, we can lay hold of the promises of healing, provision, soundness, protection and peace. Yet we must know this truth in order for it to become effective in our lives. And so no matter what the need, find what God has to say about it, and then boldly declare His Word over your life!

The Promise Of Rest

Friends,

I hope you will join me for a great time in the Word as we continue in this series of living in the finished works of Jesus. Today I will be getting into learning to rest in the promises of God, which enables us to have peace of mind and heart no matter the circumstances and conditions. When we are at peace through completely trusting, depending and relying on Jesus, we are in a place of being receptive and available for God to work mighty miracles in and through our lives.

Many blessings!

Maintaining Our Confidence (Hebrews 10:35-36)

Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:

Hebrews 10:35-36 (NKJV)

As we maintain our confidence in the finished works of Jesus, we will receive the reward which is to see the promises of God come to pass in our lives. Endurance enables us to remain faithful to God’s will, which puts us in a position of receiving everything He has already made available to us in Christ.

Labor To Rest (Hebrews 4:11)

Let us labour therfore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Hebrews 4:11 (KJV)

Laboring to rest is to get to where our our mind, our will and our emotions rest confidently in the finished works of Jesus. We do not labor get victory, we labor to get to the place of truly believing that Jesus has already won us the victory. We fill our minds and hearts with the Word of God until God’s promises become so real to us that all unbelief is cast out, and we rest in confident assurance of seeing God’s goodness 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.

Nothing Hid That Shall Not Be Revealed (Mark 4:22)

For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.

Mark 4:22 (KJV)

These words of Jesus describe a principle that is always at work: there is nothing hid that shall not be made manifest. This means that sooner or later God will bring to light the hidden things of the heart. For us specifically this means that as our hearts are filled with the Word of God, as we allow the promises of God to take root in our hearts, sooner or later we will see the manifestation of all that God has put in us. Our role is to remain faithful, to not waver in the face of opposition, and to give thanks for the coming harvest of manifestation.
