Hebrews 11:5 It was by faith that Enoch was taken up to heaven without dying-“he disappeared, because God took him.” For before he was taken up, he was known as a person who pleased God. When all is said and done, will He have a glorious testimony about us?We all have an opportunity to please God. In our walk with Him, are we directed by Him? Run a perfect race with a perfect testimony. 2 Timothy 4:7-8 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. And now the prize awaits me-the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.
When you are a worshipper and you are neglecting worshipping God, God can also put your career on hold. You can act religious yet deny the gift within you. 2 Timothy 3:5 They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that! The bible says prosper first in the spirit. Take care of God’s things and He’ll take care of yours. Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
When you are a husband or wife and serving your spouse, it affects your growth and God can even allow divorce or separation for you to feel the pain of being alone. Marriage is a gift else everybody would be married. The bible says don’t deny the other except when you both and agree and it must temporary.1 Corinthians 7:3-7 Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. But I say this as a concession, not as a commandment. For I wish that all men were even as I myself. But each one has his own gift from God, one in this manner and another in that. God commands blessings where there is harmony
When Jonah ran away from his responsibility he not affected himself but put others in danger. Jonah 1:14Then they cried out to the LORD, Jonah’s God. “O LORD,” they pleaded, “don’t make us die for this man’s sin. And don’t hold us responsible for his death. O LORD, you have sent this storm upon him for your own good reasons.”
You are not called unto yourself but others.1 Timothy 3:13 Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus
Prayer is communion with God and communion with God is a heart issue. A prayer offered in faith brings results. Ephesians 6:18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. You cannot see results when your prayer is controlled by a schedule. The Spirit must inspire your prayer. You cannot have a spirit led prayer life when the flesh controls you. Pray as you can’t.
Psalm 115:3 Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him. Everything happens according to his will and time. Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is a time for everything,and a season for every activity under the heavens. When you think it’s the man and woman of God who heals sicknesses, delivers from demon or perform miracles and wonders, you’ll call them powerful. It is God who works through them and He does as He wills. Acts 19:11-12 God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them. Though Paul had the gift of healing, he left the sick Trophimus because he was not authorized to heal him or his time for healing had not come. 2 Timothy 4:20 Erastus stayed in Corinth, and I left Trophimus sick in Miletus. Let’s learn from our master that to everything, we must be led by the Spirit else we will do things to entertain people and grieve the Spirit. John 2:4 “Woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.” Those who don’t understand ministries where there is deliverance and healing often say “I also went and they prayed for me but I came back with the pain” Philippians 2:25-27 Meanwhile, I thought I should send Epaphroditus back to you. He is a true brother, co-worker, and fellow soldier. And he was your messenger to help me in my need. I am sending him because he has been longing to see you, and he was very distressed that you heard he was ill. And he certainly was ill; in fact, he almost died. But God had mercy on him-and also on me, so that I would not have one sorrow after another. God does not do things because we want it to happen. Exodus 33:19 The LORD replied, “I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will call out my name, Yahweh, before you. For I will show mercy to anyone I choose, and I will show compassion to anyone I choose.
Psalm 139:7 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? Ask God to take out anything that is not right in, things that you fail to stop on your own. Psalm 139:24 See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ephesians 4:23-24 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
1 Samuel 17:45-46 David replied to the Philistine, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies-the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. Today the LORD will conquer you, and I will kill you and cut off your head. And then I will give the dead bodies of your men to the birds and wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel!
When you disobey God, He can allow your enemy to defeat you. Nahum 1:12 This is what the LORD says: “Though the Assyrians have many allies, they will be destroyed and disappear. O my people, I have punished you before, but I will not punish you again.
No amount of studying can help you understand spiritual things, it’s only through revelation that you get the insigt. Today there are committees formed to deal with satanic killings. How do you prevent future killings by studying a crime scene of occultist killings using a carnal mind?
1 Corinthians 2:13-14 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
Looking for answers only God can provide leads to frustrations.
