A Prayer Life that ABIDES

A Prayer Life that Abides
1 Corinthians 13
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
Faith, Hope and Love are the things that abide, so work them on daily basis. How to integrate faith hope and love into your prayer life:
FAITH :
1. Give God thanksgiving and praise for everything – This builds up your faith in Him.
2. Then speak Gods Words, blessings, and promises over yourself – Faith comes by hearing the Word.
HOPE:
1. Read the scriptures Genesis to Revelation – they comfort us and give us hope.
2. Pray and ask your personal petitions and questions to God – Ask for the things you hope to know and the things you hope for him to do for you.
LOVE:
1. Worship God – Show love to God.
2. Intercede for others – Show love to others in prayer.
If you practice Faith, Hope, and Love in your prayer life, you will have a communication relationship with God that abides.

Jesus is Timeless and He Inhabits Eternity

Jesus is timeless, so seeking Him encompasses equal elements of historical research, present obedience, and future faith and vision. Jesus is omnipresent and He inhabits eternity: past, present, and future. He is the Alpha and the Omega, Beginning and the End, Everlasting.

Fight the Good Fight of Faith

It’s better to lose the right battle than to win the wrong one.

If your enemy can’t deceive you he will distract you. Most likely with useless decoy battles.

CONNECTION: Relationship, Discipleship, Fellowship

FAITH=God/Man CONNECTION: God is looking for an opportunity to show Himself strong on your behalf if your heart is perfect towards Him! Relationship.

2 Chronicles 16
9 For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him…

Discipleship & Fellowship : they are what makes it possible for your talk and your walk to reach the finish line at the same time… So your walk ain’t dying while all your talk is flying! Stay CONNECTED.

Hebrews 10
24 and let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching

Single Minded Faith is Maturity, Double Mindedness is Immature

Single Minded Faith is Maturity, Double Mindedness is Immature

Double minded men don’t receive anything from the Lord so they must steal from others! Hold onto God’s wisdom with a single minded focus in faith, and obey His instructions. Be stable, don’t waver back & forth. Don’t waver between trusting in men or trusting in God.

God rewards real faith with real instructions. Doubting God is not a sign of maturity, its a sign of instability because you would rather rest in man’s approval than obey God’s instruction of wisdom. This instability shows up in other areas of your life as well.

Be single-minded in faith and wisdom!

James 1
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Don’t Get Settled: Believe Something!

Zephaniah 1:12
And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The Lord will not do good, neither will he do evil.

Its not godly at all to sit back think that God isn’t going to do anything. God is pleased by faith and by people that live by their faith – what they believe. God is pleased by people that believe He is real and active, not by those that just want to get settled down in comfort and wait for nothing to happen.

You’ve got to believe that God is going to do something good in response to obedience, and/or that He is going to do something evil in response to disobedience. The closer you get to God, the more you know how active He is.

Be a Hebrew in Christ: “One Who Crosses Over”

Be a Hebrew in Christ: “One Who Crosses Over”

Many people fail because they are scared to change. Abraham was a friend of God, and he wasn’t afraid of change. In fact, the word “Hebrew” comes from a word that means “one who crosses over.” This is the man God chose to bring the Messiah through and bless the earth.

Isaiah 51
1 Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.
2 Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.

Genesis 12
1 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

Are you afraid to “cross over” or are you of the character that God can choose to bless increase and multiply all over the face of the earth? Don’t be afraid of righteous changes!!! Don’t let your past hold you back from obedience. Listen to God! Be a true Hebrew in Christ: “One who Crosses Over.”
