"This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh." - Galatians 5:16
How many times I have struggle senselessly over some temptations. If I were faithfully reading and studying God's Word, memorizing His Word, and praying like I ought to, I wouldn't be near as likely to struggle so much!

"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:19
Never at any time will I be without anything I NEED. Granted, I may be without things I want or feel I need at time, but God knows exactly what I need, be it physical, emotional, or spiritual. It can also be singleness, a married life, children, a career, spiritual dryness, or a time of refreshing in the Lord. God will always provide what I need to lead me on to His perfect will for my life. Praise the Lord for His bountiful provisions!

"And be found in Him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:" - Philippians 3:8
How blissfully relieving to realize that I am not dependent on my own righteousness for salvation or good standing with God, but through faith in my Lord Jesus Christ. God no longer sees me in all my filthy righteousness and sin, but instead sees the clean and clear righteousness of Christ that covers me. Oh what amazing change a little faith in the right One will do!
