Scriptures are there to help you in every area of your life!
2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
As you meditate on this scripture have these things in mind:
- Doctrine means the established order of God.
- Reproof means dismantling of erroneous thinking.
- Correction is the assimilation of truth in thought process.
- Instruction is the systematic application of God’s word in your life.
When you read a scripture look for doctrine, reproof, correction, or instruction. Ask yourself, “Is God giving instructions in this scripture or maybe even correction?” The scriptures are there to help you in every area of your life. So as you go about studying and meditating scriptures, search for understanding in them to see exactly what it is that God has inspired for you to know!

Praying in tongues creates an environment for God to work on your behalf.
Romans 8:26 - Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Praying in the Spirit, or in tongues, gives you the mind of the spirit. The Spirit makes intercession for you when you speak in tongues because He knows exactly what you need. You become able to understand what God is saying and only God can understand what you are saying. You begin to think God’s thoughts and come into full agreement with God!
Sometimes, while you are praying in the Spirit, your emotions will rob you of experiencing the real presence of God. When God has to work around you and your own abilities, it blocks the flow of His presence, because He wants to be present in His wholeness. You must recognize that you have infirmities. When you do that, self will move out of the way and you will be open to receive what God wants to do on your behalf.
See, praying in tongues creates an environment for God to work on your behalf. But just because the power of the Lord is present doesn’t mean you will automatically receive anything. You have to have expectations beyond the ability of self and just receive! Nothing can stop you when you are in God’s will. Be consistent in praying in tongues and creating an atmosphere for the presence of God and you will be setup for one of the biggest breakthroughs in your life! Just yield and receive.

God has a fresh personal blueprint for what you are going through.
Genesis 28:15-16 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not.
You can create an atmosphere for God in your home, in the car, on your job….anywhere that you are. When that presence is made available supernatural things like miracles, signs, and wonders, will begin to start happening. God will show up and start making things happen on your behalf, so much that you’re going to know it’s Him! Enlightenment and empowerment comes when the atmosphere is manifested.
Putting your eyes on God permits an atmosphere to give us enough power to make something happen. This is an atmosphere for the impossible to become possible. God has a fresh personal blueprint for what you are going through. Don’t try and get it like someone else has. Take your eyes off of their testimony and let God create yours. God has a special way of doing it just for you! That other person’s testimony is just to encourage you. I want you to know that some of the things you haven’t been getting are now headed in your direction!

Praying in the spirit creates an atmosphere for God.
Romans 8:26-28 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Creating an atmosphere will take constant preparation. You can block the presence of God by your emotions so keep your eyes on him and you will have a fresh experience. Praying in the spirit creates an atmosphere for God. You have to admit that you have infirmities. When you know that He is present participate at all costs. In order to create an atmosphere you have to press in the spirit. You can press in the spirit realm with praise and meditation.
Ways of Creating an Atmosphere:
1) Constant Preparation
2) Recognizing His Presence
3) Release Your Faith
4) Rest in His Power
5) Participate at all Cost
Say this, “I’m putting my eyes back on God and He is going to do something for me that He has never done for me before!”

When you’re fully under grace sin has no more dominion over you.
Acts 20:32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
The word of his grace makes the word of faith work right. Operating in only the word of faith makes you think that you are doing it. You can’t earn it, it has to be believed. Your one obligation is to operate in faith with grace. Embracing grace helps you to realize that’s it not something you can do because Jesus has already done it for you. The combination of grace and faith can get you anywhere. Grace and faith comes together and covers all condemnation, guiltiness, and being judgmental about something.
All you have to know now is I’m forgiven by Christ’s life. The covenant of grace and embracing grace is giving honor to what Jesus Christ has already done for us. Grace gives you strength and strengthens righteousness. You don’t have to seek righteousness because you already are righteous. When you’re fully under grace sin has no more dominion over you. The word of grace is what saved you!
So go today embracing grace by faith! Knowing that no one can pull you from the grace of God. Grace brings life, freedom, and joy into your life because your righteousness works by faith! When grace truly impacts you, you will see our Father in a completely new life! You are called by the Lord to be a success and to enjoy health, wealth, and victory!

When you accept Jesus in your life you are designed to see how God sees.
Ephesians 1:18-19 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power.
When you accepted Christ there was total forgiveness of your past, present, and future. This removes all guilt, shame, worry, and fear. Being blind to grace, trying to please God on your own, is one of the biggest ways Satan tries to mislead you. The spirit of grace will open your eyes. It’s not about how good or how bad you live, it’s about you being in Christ and how good He is. When you accept Jesus in your life you are designed to see how God sees.
Live in revelation so that the Holy Spirit can open your eyes to the glory of God in every situation in your life. You cannot and will not be defeated! Recognize that you are totally forgiven so that you can walk in power. God desires to release his full favor in your life. The days of all defeat come to an end in your life today.
If sin is controlling your life you’re not operating in grace at all. Just acknowledge the goodness, the love, and the mercy that grace brings. Give grace space and see the freedom in running this race!

Discerning the Lord’s body causes you to walk in health.
1 Corinthians 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
Holy Communion is where you get God’s divine help, healing, and blessings. When you take the bread you are receiving healing. Its God’s nature and part of who He is to heal you.
You might think that you’re not worthy enough to take communion because you feel like your not living right or deserve it. What if I told you that all you have to do is just receive? That’s right...Believe and Receive! All the people Jesus healed in the Bible were sinners, so that’s no longer an excuse! You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus!
Discerning the Lord’s body causes you to walk in health. That simply means knowing your infirmities and sickness were placed on Jesus on the cross.
Your sins have no more power over you because of grace! Where sins abounds, grace abounds much more!
Say, “I am healthy, I am strong, and I will live long!”

When you walk in what Jesus has provided for you, you walk ONLY in His grace!
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
All of your mistakes and shortcomings are already paid for by what Jesus Christ did on the cross. We must acknowledge our righteousness and acknowledge the truth. The truth is that Jesus has already set me free! You are living under Grace! Not bound under the law!
When you walk in what Jesus has provided for you, you walk ONLY in His grace. Not in condemnation. You must take the supply of grace and the supply of faith, mix them together, and simply RECEIVE!
Declare this with me today:
“I declare breakthroughs are coming in my life and a sudden breath of God’s goodness! Not a trickle, not a stream, but a flood of God’s power. A flood of healing. A flood of wisdom. A flood of favor. I’m a breakthrough person, and I choose to live breakthrough-minded. I’m expecting God to overwhelm me with his goodness, and amaze me with his favor. This is my declaration!”

You are in good standing with God by what Christ did at the cross...
Hebrews 13:8-9 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.
I love that verse. It’s a powerful verse. Jesus Christ is the same today, yesterday, and forever. I’m glad he doesn’t change. Are you glad he doesn’t change? But if you don’t understand grace, God’s goodness, and God’s favor on your life, there cannot be change. Grace can't be taken from you no matter what you do. It’s still there for you. And it was manufactured at the cross. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever!!
Then it says "be not carried about with divers and strange doctrine". Paul addressed this in Galatians 1, calling it a perverted gospel. A gospel without an understanding of grace is perverted. It cannot be gospel. It becomes commandments. It cannot be grace. It becomes law. It cannot become faith. It becomes performance.
You are in good standing with God by what Christ did at the cross.You have to know this to access full benefits of God’s grace. Knowing this activates God’s grace in every area of your life. God is not out to punish you. So live a life with no condemnation! Say this "I AM in Good Standing with God Now"! Believe it! Live it!

You have been adopted according to the good pleasure of His will.
Ephesians 1:4-6 ~ According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
The gospel of self reliance, which dismisses faith, is not God's will for his children. He desires for us to function through the operations of grace.
Remember God has chosen you, In Christ, to be holy and without blame before him in love.
You have been adopted according to the good pleasure of His will.
Now praise him for the glory of His grace! For he has made you accepted in the beloved!
