Nothing Can Remove Us From The Covenant Of Peace (Isaiah 54:10)

For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

Isaiah 54:10 (KJV)

God has made it clear that nothing, no amount of mistake or shortcoming, can ever remove us from His covenant of peace which is in Christ Jesus. Knowing this with confidence frees us from the bonds of fear, guilt and condemnation, and it reminds us that the foundation for our right standing is never our own performance, but the finished works of Jesus. And so be assured that God longs to reveal His kindness in your life, He wants to shower you with His peace. Having this assurance in our hearts enables us to grow in our relationship with Him, and to become more fully who He has created us to be.

New Roads And New Rivers (Isaiah 43:18-19)

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

Isaiah 43:18-19 (KJV)

To take hold of the newness of life that is available to us in Christ Jesus, we must let go of the old. Scripture tells us we are to not even consider the things of old, but instead focus on what God is looking to do right here and right now. Let us realize that we serve a God who wants to continuously take us down new roads and lead us into new rivers of His goodness. Our role is to lay hold of this by faith, and to then live each day expectant of seeing God’s goodness and grace in our lives.

We Have Access To The More Abundant Life (John 10:10)

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

John 10:10 (KJV)

Jesus has come to give us access to the more abundant life. This more abundant life becomes available to us the very moment we are in Christ—we are to experience God’s goodness in our relationships, in our health, in our livelihood as well as in the area of our finances. Yet the only way to receive anything from God is by faith. We must believe in our hearts that it is God’s will that we be blessed. The thief may make an attempt to steal, kill and destroy, yet we must always stand firm upon the promises of God. Let us be sure that each of us are called to be blessed and therefore to be a blessing unto our world.

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.

Forget Not All His Benefits (Psalm 103:2-4)

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

Psalm 103:2-4 (KJV)

Let us remember every day the benefits of salvation, which include healing, redemption from all forms of destruction—physically, emotionally and spiritually—as well as us receiving freely out of the bountiful love, kindness and grace of our God. All of this is available to us. It is God’s desire for us to be made every whit whole, to show forth the fruits of salvation in all of the spheres of our life. As we meditate on and confess this truth daily, thereby reminding our soul, we are making way for God’s goodness and glory to manifest in and through our lives.

Faith Enables The Glory Of God (Matthew 9:28-29)

And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.

Matthew 9:28-29 (KJV)

Faith enables the glory of God to be made manifest in our lives. When healing the blind men, Jesus implied that it was their faith that enabled Him to do so. And so in our walk with the Lord, we are called to continuously excercise our faith. As we do this, let us remember that we serve a God who can do what no one else can do, and His desire is to bring wholeness into all of the areas of our lives. Today, live in the confident expectation of God’s goodness, and be on the lookout for the evidence of His grace and favor to show up in your life.

God Sent His Son To Bless Us (Acts 3:26)

Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquties.

Acts 3:26 (KJV)

How comforting it is to know that God’s purpose for sending His Son into the world and raising Him from the dead was to bless us! And so let no one ever doubt that it is God’s desire for us that we be blessed in every area of our lives. God has willed that in Jesus we be set free from the bondage of inquity, and that we enter into faith-filled and victorious living. All of this has already been freely provided for us in and through the finished works of our Lord Jesus, and all that is left for us to do is to receive this precious gift by faith. So today, let us rejoice as we consider the enormous blessing that is upon our lives, and may we purpose in our hearts that we will take hold of this glorious victory that was won for us two thousand years ago.

Forget Not All His Benefits (Psalm 103:2-4)

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

Psalm 103:2-4 (KJV)

Let us remember every day the benefits of salvation, which include healing, redemption from all forms of destruction—physically, emotionally and spiritually—as well as us receiving freely out of the bountiful love, kindness and grace of our God. All of this is available to us. It is God’s desire for us to be made every whit whole, to show forth the fruits of salvation in all of the spheres of our life. As we meditate on this truth daily, thereby reminding our soul, we are making way for God’s goodness and glory to manifest in and through our lives.

Continual Praise (Psalm 98:4)

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

Psalm 98:4 (KJV)

Praise is powerful because it announces that the victory has already been won. When we praise God and rejoice in Him, mountains melt away as we open ourselves more fully to seeing God’s glory manifest in our lives. Let us live in a heart space of continual praise; let us rejoice in Him on the mountaintop and in the valley, for He is infinitely worthy of all praise!

Nothing Can Remove Us From The Covenant Of Peace (Isaiah 54:10)

For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

Isaiah 54:10 (KJV)

God has made it clear that nothing, no amount of mistake or shortcoming, can ever remove us from His covenant of peace that is in Christ Jesus. Knowing this with confidence frees us from the bonds of fear, guilt and condemnation, and it reminds us that the foundation for our right standing is never our own performance, but the finished works of Jesus. And so be assured that God longs to reveal His kindness in your life, He wants to shower you with His peace. Having this assurance in our hearts enables us to grow in our relationship with Him, and to become more fully who He has created us to be.
