WOMEN ARE BRAVE to believe Jesus when they can’t SEE results immediately and they don’t whine and complain rather STRETCH their faith deeper and more DETERMINED. read about these Gentile women.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Most people quote only the first part of Hebrews 11:6—“without faith it is impossible to please Him”. Yet, it goes on to say, “for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him”. In other words, the faith that pleases God is the kind of faith that believes that God exists and that He is a rewarder.
The Bible also says that “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”. (Hebrews 11:1) So even in times of difficulty, when we don’t see good things happening in our circumstances, we are to believe that God will turn things around and reward us.
God turned things around for Ruth, the Moabite widow, when she believed the Lord and made Him her God. (Ruth 1:16) The Bible tells us that she was given a “full reward” by the Lord when she came under His wings for refuge. (Ruth 2:12) Not only did He give her protection, He also gave her abundant provision, exceeding favor and a glorious redemption. (Ruth 2:9–17, 3:11, 4:10–13)
When Rahab, the harlot of Jericho, heard reports of how the Lord had opened up the Red Sea for the children of Israel, she believed that “He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath”. (Joshua 2:9–11) Though Rahab had not personally witnessed the miracles, she believed God and hid the Jewish spies from their pursuers. (Joshua 2:4–6) Because of her faith, she not only did not perish with those who did not believe (Joshua 6:25, Hebrews 11:31), but she was also given a place in the “hall of faith” in Hebrews 11.
God was so pleased with the faith of these two Gentile women that He not only blessed them in their lifetimes, but He also put them into the genealogy of His Son Jesus Christ, the great Redeemer and rewarder.
Beloved, when you come to the Lord with your needs, believe that He is God, and that He is a rewarder. God has pleasure in this kind of faith. He wants to be the rewarder of your faith in Him!
And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “I have heard the complaints of the children of Israel. Speak to them, saying, ‘At twilight you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread. And you shall know that I am the Lord your God.’”
Blessed Based On God’s Goodness
Many years ago, when I was studying God’s Word, the Lord spoke to me, saying, “Before the law was given, none of the children of Israel died when they came out of Egypt. Even though they murmured and complained against God’s appointed leadership, not a single one of them died. This is a picture of pure grace.” I had never heard anyone teach this before or read it in any book, so I quickly went through that portion in my Bible and indeed, I could not find anyone who died before the law was given!
You see, when the Israelites journeyed from Egypt to Mount Sinai, they were under the Abrahamic covenant of grace. They only came under the law when the Ten Commandments were given to them at Mount Sinai. Therefore, in spite of their sins, God delivered them out of Egypt and provided for them supernaturally, not based on their goodness and faithfulness, but based on His goodness and faithfulness.
Beloved, the good news for you and me is this: Today, we are under the new covenant of grace (unmerited favor), and God’s unmerited favor is upon us. Therefore, His blessings and provisions for us are based entirely on HIS GOODNESS and HIS FAITHFULNESS. Hallelujah!
1 CORINTHIANS 1:30
But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God…
It is believed that there has never been a wealthier king than King Solomon. God gave him wisdom that not only made him wise in matters of justice, but also brought him gold and silver. (1 Kings 3:12–13)
According to a report by the Illinois Society of Architects in 1925, the cost of Solomon’s temple in terms of existing values would have been about US$87 billion! The priests wore garments costing more than US$10 million! These amounts only cover what Solomon spent on the temple and not his personal assets.
We can go on talking about the riches of King Solomon, but the Bible tells us that there is one greater than Solomon. (Matthew 12:42) His name is Jesus, and He is the most prosperous Man who ever lived and who will ever live.
If there was a need to feed the hungry, He simply multiplied whatever food was placed in His hands. On one occasion, He multiplied five loaves and two fish to feed 5,000 men, not counting women and children. And incredibly, there were 12 baskets full of leftovers. (Matthew 14:15–21)
If any of His own faced lack, it was not long before abundant provision flowed to them. Once, when His disciples caught nothing after a whole night of fishing, He merely spoke a word of command and schools of fish obeyed, swimming toward His disciples’ boat so that they received a net-breaking, boat-sinking load of fish. (Luke 5:1–7) In another incident, He provided the money for the temple tax, even if it took a fish to bring it to them! (Matthew 17:24–27)
My friend, this same Jesus has become for you wisdom from God. If you are a businessman, with Christ in you, you have wisdom that is greater than the wisdom of all the world’s business gurus put together. And if you are a student, Christ in you will manifest wisdom that is greater than all the wisdom of the brilliant minds in the academic world.
Beloved, believe that because Jesus, God’s wisdom, is in you, there is no reason you cannot prosper today, and astound the world in the same way Solomon did!
Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him.
When you sow apple seeds, you get apples. When you sow seeds of friendship, you get friends. If in the natural, you receive in the area in which you sow, how much more will you receive in the supernatural when God blesses you!
The Bible tells us that when Isaac sowed in the land, he reaped a hundredfold even though there was a famine in that land. (Genesis 26:1) The reason was that “the Lord blessed him”.
So if you are believing God for a breakthrough in a particular area, sow in that area. A brother wrote a note to me at a conference I was preaching at in London. He shared with me how he was one of only two employees promoted in his department and given a substantial increase in his salary despite the economic downturn in England and retrenchment exercise at his workplace. The sum of the increase in his salary was “more than 10 times” what he had sowed into God’s kingdom at the same conference the year before. It could only be the Lord blessing him. And He “is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think”. (Ephesians 3:20)
Whatever money or time you give to the Lord, He will multiply it back to you. For example, you have 24 hours a day like everyone else, but the Lord can make your day very fruitful. And even after doing all that needs to be done, you will find that you still have time left to rest.
Even when you have nothing to give but prayers, your prayers will not return to you void. God can answer them exceedingly above what you have asked. When Job lost everything that he possessed, he prayed for his friends, and the Lord not only restored his losses, but He also “gave Job twice as much as he had before”. (Job 42:10)
So start sowing seeds in the area that you are believing God for, and know that before long, you will be reaping your harvest!
For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You are about to step onto the road when something pulls you back just in time to avoid being hit by a speeding car. You are shocked. When you come to your senses, you ask yourself, “Could it be that an angel just saved me from a fatal accident?”
I believe that angels walk with us. The verse tells us that God has given His angels charge over us to keep us in all our ways. And in their hands they will bear us up, so that not even a stone will trip us up.
But we may not know it when we encounter an angel. (Hebrews 13:2) This was probably the case with a couple in our church who were holidaying at a beach resort on Penang Island when a tsunami struck at about 12.30pm on 26 December 2004.
It was slightly past 11am when the wife suddenly had a craving for food from the mainland. The couple decided to check out earlier, so that they could reach the mainland in time for lunch. While loading their luggage into their car at the hotel driveway, a man impatiently motioned to them to hurry up and get moving.
Annoyed by his impatience, they quickly loaded their stuff and drove off. The minute they reached the mainland, they heard that a tsunami had struck Penang Island at the same beach where they were just a while ago. While thanking God for their narrow escape, it suddenly dawned on them that the impatient man could have been an angel charged by God to hurry them off!
God tells us that we have an innumerable company of angels. (Hebrews 12:22) And He has given them charge over us to protect us from accidents, natural disasters, terrorist bombings and other dangers. So don’t fear these things and lock yourself at home. Go for that holiday! Go for that lunch appointment! Believe that God loves you, and thank Him for His angels who walk with you and watch over you!Joseph Prince
This lesson is possibly the BEST lesson ever… ha … confrontational YES; FREEDOM in Jesus … YES IN DEEDY…
Teaching the Word of God with much honor at Womens’ Conferences; also to lead and teach a beautiful legacy discipleship group for the next generation of BRAVE YOUNG WOMEN. With that all said, teaching the Word of God is THE GREATEST thing and yet the most challenging. Whew.
There is NOTHING like it When women GRASP the Word of God,
BRAVE WOMEN is what they should be Called…
The Word of radically changes their lives and moves them to a NEW LEVEL in their relationship with JESUS…
Women stop being TOSSED around by their EMOTIONS and by what others are saying about them or what they are doing or not doing…
The FOCUS becomes JESUS and making HIS NAME FAMOUS instead of their OWN NAME…
This lesson has RIVETED MY SOUL and HEART and MIND. I JUMP with excitement (you might have heard me shouting the Victory early this morning ha ha)
My prayer is that ALL OF YOU BEAUTIFUL WOMEN Shout the Victory all over the world after you read this Short yet POIGNANT LESSON the Lord is BREAKING BREAD in front of you today.
Read every word of this lesson and read it again.
IF it STINGS a little, then PRAISE THE LORD; If you get a tid bit frustrated, then Praise the Lord. That indicates HIS WORD IS DOING THE job it was sent to do… and that is to CHANGE OUR LIVES FOR THE BETTER for the KINGDOM OF GOD and FOR THE PURPOSE OF MAKING JESUS NAME FAMOUS… In our Weaknesses, Jesus then is MADE SO STRONG…
So encouraged So excited So prayerful So faithful So basking in Jesus love
Let’s meditate on the passage posted below today. I am posting several translations BECAUSE when this verse SOAKS INTO OUR SOULS AND MINDS WE WILL BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING.
This verse is radical. Not emotional. Radical.
Think how many times we CAST our cares on other people.
We THINK if more are praying then Jesus might do something.
It’s one simple act on our part.
And then we sometimes, not all the time, MISS INTERPRET scripture due to trusting a pastor preaching; a woman teaching; or due to NOT LOOKING up words and not searching OUT scripture just because. Ladies, this could be hazardous BECAUSE Then we BLAME GOD, we BLAME PASTORS; we say WE DONT’ GET FED - which is such a Lie because whenever the Word of God is preached, we are FED; Satan is the father of all lies and decption. KEEP that in mind.
The devil would love to lie and DECEIVE US by getting us to BLAME others, or BLAME our situation; or even BLAME the devil himself… WHY does he do this to us?
IT DISTRACTS US FROM THE TRUTH and then we remain in BONDAGE to the lies and deceit, instead of walking in the beautiful FREEDOM JESUS HAS FOR US ALL to live while on this earth…
THIS PASSAGE below is one you might find fabulous and convicting all in one.
There are times the LORD PUTS a Burden on us to sincerely Assist someone financially or to intercede/pray for someone/family…
These BURDENS are LIGHT because it always falls into place for the GIVER and the RECEIVER.
We “FEEL” right about it; We are not afraid when we ask others to jump in and help us with a family we DON’T HAVE to BEG rather ASK and those individuals the Lord has put on their heart to help will FREELY donate or give. THEY just freely give.
When we Take HIS YOKE upon us we SEE ANSWERS… THIS IS THE YOKE of the Lord, HIS Burden is LIGHT because it is SENT FROM HIM ….. He NEVER ever puts on us something that is going to WIPE US OUT. Generally we do that ourselves… you know what I mean ladies.
FOR EXAMPLE: (and ladies, I can testify to what you are about to read and if you are HONEST LOL you can as well):
Then there are MORE TIMES we BURDEN OURSELVES with UNNECESSARY WORRY and Concern.
Like taking on WAY too many Church, household, people hobbies;
OR we take on WAY too many friendships that are unhealthy,
Or way too many task in the church just to be accepted and because we CAN’T SAY NO,
Or we take on way too many burdens of others in the name of I WILL PRAY FOR YOU and thinking this is being HUMBLE … when in fact it is a BURDEN because WE FORGET TO PRAY (HA BEEN HERE) then GUILT over takes us along with forgetting to pray and then we LIE to those we promised to PRAY OVER by saying OH I HAVE BEEN INTERCEDING… and in reality YOU forgot to pray…
ummmmmmmmm who can testify right now LOL LOL
This passage Clears this up for us IF WE ALLOW IT TOO. It’s awesome.
========================================================= Cast thy burden upon Jehovah, and he will sustain thee: He will never suffer the righteous to be moved. (Psalm 55:22 ASV)
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. (Psalm 55:22 NIV)
Psalm 55:22 (EXB) 22 ·Give [Cast; Throw] your worries burden; [that which He has given to you], to the Lord, and he will ·take care of [sustain] you. He will never let good [righteous] people down [be moved].
Psalm 55:22 (KJV) Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. =========================================================
Here are a few words that BRING This passage to LIFE for each of us:
CAST: to throw or hurl; fling; to BRING DOWN
BURDEN: that which is borne with difficulty; obligations that are UNNECESSARY; to load oppressively; trouble; or something that is to be carried from one location to another - that is not negative rather heavy.
SUSTAIN: to undergo, experience, or suffer (injury, loss, etc.); .endure without giving way or yielding. To keep (a person, the mind, the spirits, etc.) from giving way, as under trial or affliction.
NEVER: not ever; at no time, to no extent or degree
SUFFER: to undergo or feel pain or distress; to undergo a penalty, as of death; to endure pain; to tolerate or allow
RIGHTEOUS: acting in an upright, moral way; virtuous; morally right or justifiable
SHAKEN: to tremble with emotion; to dislodge or dispense
MOVED: to go from one place of residence to another; to sell or be sold;
NOW LADIES, Read this passage AGAIN KNOWING THE DEFINITIONS. WOooohoooo
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. (Psalm 55:22 NIV)
Cast any of your difficulties that you have brought on yourself; THROW all of your unnecessary OBLIGATIONS just to be accepted by people; TOSS all of your TROUBLES you brought on yourself or others brought on you; FLING any NEGATIVE HEAVY weights from Task you said too and call and be HONEST (righteous) and say NO.
GOD, JESUS HIS SON said, He will NOT EVER, AT NOT TIME, TO NO EXTENT cause us to undergo or FEEL PAIN or DISTRESS; JESUS DIED on the Cross for the Penalty of OUR SINS and we have ETERNAL LIFE (NO Death eternal) and HE called us RIGTEOUS - we are acting in an upright learning to say NO and telling the truth manner even if it means PAINFUL CONSEQUENCES because we have CHOSE JESUS and therefore JESUS ON THE CROSS has made us justifiable and virtuous and morally right; we will not TREMBLE with EMOTIONAL OUTBURST; we will NOT BE DISLODGED by painful words spoken to us because our RESIDENCE IS IN JESUS and we are NOT MOVED…
DEAR LORD I AM SHOUTING THE VICTORY….
SO Take Jesus burden upon you from NOW on; learn to SAY NO;
DISREGARD any unncessary negative tapes in your head from the past;
CAST, TOSS, FLING, THROW all of the burdens You have brought on yourself; or burdens others brought on you..
TOSS it all TO JESUS, study the Word of God and CONFESS HIM AS LORD…
Prayer is that invisible power, that invisible source, that invisible force that nations can’t stop it, governments can’t stop it. There is nothing there is nothing in this world, economies can’t stop it, prayer changes economies, prayer changes governments, prayer changes nations, prayer changes families, prayer changes things and no wonder satan doesn’t want you praying, no wonder satan doesn’t want you to know how much power you have, how much authority you have, how much ability you have in prayer because he wants to keep the nation in the dark
The devil wants us powerless the rest of our lives and if we remain ignorant to the power of prayer we will remain powerless to experiencing all that God has for us and all that God wants to do in your family, in your, life in your relatives, in your business, in your finances, in your health, in your home.
Prayer changes everything and Satan is robbing Christians of the power or prayer. You take your sick loved one to a doctor and the doctor says we’ve done everything we know how to do all that’s left to do is pray. In other words there is nothing else to resort to, they go to it and look to prayer as the last resort as if well there is nothing we can do so you might as well see if there is anything God can do.
How about just start with God we know nothing is impossible with you nothing is too difficult for you and I ask you right now to intervene in this situation and I thank you father that not only can I ask you and I do and receive it by faith and I also speak to this situation with the authority that you gave me to speak it speak to it and I command it to change in Jesus’ name. We all have problems. Get your problems out in the open. Don’t try to pretend you don’t have problems. Don’t try to act like you don’t have issues. Get them out in the open. Write them down on a piece of paper and then take them to God in prayer and watch them change.
You got people in your lives that are issues, you got people in your life that are problem people, everybody has got difficult people in their life right? Listen how do you deal with difficult people. It’s really easy. Pray for them. It’s loving in the spirit, prayer for others is loving in the spirit. But difficult people are easy to deal with in prayer. Go to God, they’re your enemy. When a person’s being difficult they kind of like your enemy.
The Bible says pray for your enemies, pray for that difficult person. God, Lord bless that person. Lord ease that person’s pain whatever is causing them to be such a difficult person in Jesus name I pray. You pray like that, God understands. You pray a blessing on them. Pray that God will speak to them pray that God will reveal something to them that God will open their eyes. That’s how you deal with difficult people. Every nation and every evil kingdom seeks for an invincible power but no one can find it because the only invincible power that cannot be quenched and cannot fail is the power of prayer. Amen.
To think that Jesus said pray that your joy may be made full tells us that prayer produces joy and happiness. That Paul said be anxious for nothing but in everything with prayer and supplication let the let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God with thanksgiving and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.
That the power of prayer produces joy, that the power of prayer produces peace. Well we could just go on and on. Pray the prayer of faith James said and it will heal the sick, how the power of prayer brings healing. Anything you need God has given us the power to pray and see it happen.
…great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all.
It didn’t matter who they were or what kinds of past these people had. As long as they sought Him for healing, Jesus healed them gladly and graciously. He never asked them what they had done or not done, or if they had repented. He never asked them to sign a pledge to follow Him and never told anyone that He would not heal them because they deserved to be sick.
Surely, none of them were perfect in their thought life or behavior. Surely, there were some who came to Him without strong faith. Yet, all this didn’t matter to Jesus. All that mattered to Him was that they had been suffering and needed to be set free.
Beloved, see this compassionate Savior when you come to Him for healing. He puts no demands and no conditions on you. He simply wants to heal you and set you free!
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun. It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is deprived of its warmth. The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the Lord are firm, and all of them are righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb. By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward. But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression. May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. (Psalm 19:1-14 NIV)
By David Wilkerson
God doesn’t want your home, your car, your furniture, your savings, your possessions. All He wants is your faith—your strong belief in His Word. And that may be the one thing that other, more spiritual-appearing people lack. You may look at another person as being more spiritual than you but that person may actually be struggling hard to keep up an appearance of righteousness. Yet, as God looks at you, He declares, “There is a righteous man or woman.” Why?
Because you have admitted your helplessness to become righteous and trusted in the Lord to give you His righteousness.
Paul tells us we are counted as righteous in God’s eyes for the same reason Abraham was. “Therefore it was imputed to [Abraham] for righteousness. Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; but for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead” (Romans 4:22-24).
You may claim, “I believe this! I have faith in the God who resurrected
Jesus.” Yet, here are some questions for you: Do you believe the Lord can resurrect your troubled marriage? Do you believe He can bring to life a spiritually dead relative? Do you believe He can raise you up out of the pit of a debilitating habit? Do you believe He can erase your cursed past and restore to you all the years that have been wasted?
When everything looks hopeless—when you are in an impossible situation, with no resources and no hope before you—do you believe God will be your Jehovah Jirah, seeing to your need? Do you believe He is committed to keeping His promises to you and that if even one of His words should fail, the heavens would melt and the universe collapse?
“For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: so shall my word be that goeth
forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall
accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I
sent it” (Isaiah 55:10-
GOOD MORNING. Short SUNDAY school lesson worth reading.
Last night my daughter and I were dissecting scriptures. Taking WORDS and looking up the definitions then putting the definitions in the scripture. Just like I taught in discipleship YEARS AGO and have done here so many times. WHEW WHEW. then we READ THE PASSAGE OUT LOUD as though praying it. HEALING FELL ON US. HOPE REVIVED. SO awesome when you truly study. Not just read but study. Disciples is defined as learner. Student.
SO. Read this long passage OUT LOUD. then read it again in silence. Close your eyes And picture this moment in Daniels life. And remember. The God Of Daniel is OUR GOD TODAY. Then PRAY OVER your family. Pray over communities. NO WORDS.
“On the twenty-fourth day of the first month I was standing on the bank of the great river, the Tigris. I looked up and to my surprise saw a man dressed in linen with a belt of pure gold around his waist. His body was hard and glistening, as if sculpted from a precious stone, his face radiant, his eyes bright and penetrating like torches, his arms and feet glistening like polished bronze, and his voice, deep and resonant, sounded like a huge choir of voices.
“I, Daniel, was the only one to see this. The men who were with me, although they didn’t see it, were overcome with fear and ran off and hid, fearing the worst. Left alone after the appearance, abandoned by my friends, I went weak in the knees, the blood drained from my face.
“I heard his voice. At the sound of it I fainted, fell flat on the ground, face in the dirt. A hand touched me and pulled me to my hands and knees.
“‘Daniel,’ he said, ‘man of quality, listen carefully to my message. And get up on your feet. Stand at attention. I’ve been sent to bring you news.’ “When he had said this, I stood up, but I was still shaking. “‘Relax, Daniel,’ he continued, ‘don’t be afraid. From the moment you decided to humble yourself to receive understanding, your prayer was heard, and I set out to come to you. But I was waylaid by the angel-prince of the kingdom of Persia and was delayed for a good three weeks. But then Michael, one of the chief angel-princes, intervened to help me. I left him there with the prince of the kingdom of Persia. And now I’m here to help you understand what will eventually happen to your people. The vision has to do with what’s ahead.’
“While he was saying all this, I looked at the ground and said nothing. Then I was surprised by something like a human hand that touched my lips. I opened my mouth and started talking to the messenger: ‘When I saw you, master, I was terror-stricken. My knees turned to water. I couldn’t move. How can I, a lowly servant, speak to you, my master? I’m paralyzed. I can hardly breathe!’
“Then this humanlike figure touched me again and gave me strength. He said, ‘Don’t be afraid, friend. Peace. Everything is going to be all right. Take courage. Be strong.’ “Even as he spoke, courage surged up within me. I said, ‘Go ahead, let my master speak. You’ve given me courage.’
“He said, ‘Do you know why I’ve come here to you? I now have to go back to fight against the angel-prince of Persia, and when I get him out of the way, the angel-prince of Greece will arrive. But first let me tell you what’s written in The True Book. No one helps me in my fight against these beings except Michael, your angel-prince.’” (Daniel 10:4-21 MSG)
God’s promise is going to carve through all that is wrong in your life right now and get you into God’s destiny. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit for the Spirit searches all things, the deep things of God, but then the Holy Spirit takes what is written and reveals these things to us.
1 Corinthians 2:9-12 says,
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard,and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets.
No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.So to walk in God’s purpose and begin to seize your destiny, you go through the door of God’s love. You go through the door of God’s promise, this day this scripture. And you go through the door of the Spirit of God.
What God has for you is BEYOND YOUR WILDEST DREAMS.You need the Holy Spirit to lead you into all that God has for you. Walking in the Spirit doesn’t mean trying to be more spiritual than somebody else. Walking in the spirit means being in agreement with God’s word because when you agree with God you’re in the spirit.If God were to reveal to you all that He has for you, one of two things would happen.You either wouldn’t believe it or you would believe it and you would be either in pride, “Aw, man, yeah, I’m awesome; I’m so great.” You’ll get puffed up with pride or you’ll try to force it and make it happen and God, He doesn’t want you to make it happen; He is really good at making it happen, amen? I don’t know what my life is going to look like five years from now. Five years ago I didn’t know. I mean, I had some hopes, I had some dreams. I’ve got some more hopes, I’ve got some more dreams but God doesn’t reveal everything at one time. He reveals it in pieces so we can digest it. He reveals it in pieces so we can embrace it one piece at a time. He reveals it in pieces so that we can have it done to us according to our faith.
TRUST HIM WITH YOUR DREAM!He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” Luke 4:21
There is so much more to this message I want to share with you, that I believe will truly bless you and unlock your God-given destiny and dream. I can’t share the whole life-changing teaching on this page… I want you to get a hold of the full message that not only explains that God has appointed truly amazing dreams and promises for you – but it will give you practical steps to see those dreams become reality! -

God has so much He wants to give you. His desire is to “open you the windows
of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to
receive it” (Malachi 3:10). He stand in a full storehouse, saying, “I am a

are not to be satisfied with what we think is a lot! Many Christians are
satisfied to sit in church and be blessed by God’s presence. Such people are
no more than “satisfied sponges” soaking up everything—but they limit God
in their lives, when He so wants to anoint them for service.
When the disciples marveled at Christ’s miracles, Jesus replied, “God has
an ever greater work for you!” Most of us are like the disciples. We see one
miracle, and we are satisfied to talk about it for the rest of our lives. Yet,
if we really knew God and let Him be God to us, we would ask Him for so much
* We would reach into the heavenlies by faith, believing God to bring down
the godless leaders in local, state and federal agencies. We would bring down
principalities and powers, as God said!
* We would believe God to help us saturate our city with the gospel of Jesus
Christ. We would stand up in faith against every weapon aimed against us, and
we would be putting down satanic stronghold in our families and churches.
Our vision would be limitless. We would believe God for even greater things for

Right now, there are hundreds of radio frequencies in the air, hundreds of television signals all around you. But, you don’t hear them all. The reason is that you’re not tuned in. If you tune a radio or television to one of those frequencies, then you would pick up the signal.
In the same way, God is constantly transmitting to us. He wants to lead us, guide us, protect us and give us insight. But too often, we’re not tuned to His frequency. You have to pay attention to Him and learn His voice. God doesn’t speak to us most of the time out loud. He speaks to us through subtle things. He leads us by peace inside.
The best way to “tune in to His frequency” is by reading and meditating on His Word. The more know His Word, the more you know His voice. It’s like when you constantly tune in to a radio station and learn that DJ’s voice, you’ll recognize that voice when you are in a restaurant or at the mall. It’s the same idea. Tune in to God’s Word, tune in to Him and let Him lead you and guide you into victory all the days of your life!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You for leading me and guiding me in Your truth. I choose to tune in to You, I choose to tune in to Your Word. Help me to hear Your voice so that I can follow Your leading all the days of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
