There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. —1 John 4:18
I remember watching television news reports in 1991 as the nonviolent revolution took place in the streets of Moscow. Russians who had grown up in totalitarianism suddenly declared, “We will act as if we are free,” taking to the streets and staring down tanks. The contrast between the faces of the leaders inside and the masses outside showed who was really afraid, and who was really free.
Watching the newsreels from Red Square on Finnish television, I came up with a new definition of faith: paranoia in reverse. A truly paranoid person organizes his or her life around a common perspective of fear. Anything that happens feeds that fear.
Faith works in reverse. A faithful person organizes his or her life around a common perspective of trust, not fear. Despite the apparent chaos of the present moment, God does reign. Regardless of how I may feel, I truly matter to a God of love.
What could happen if we in God’s kingdom truly acted as if the words of the apostle John were literally true: “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). What if we really started living as if the most-repeated prayer in Christendom has actually been answered—that God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven?
Far, far above thy thought :
His counsel shall appear,
When fully He the work hath wrought
That caused thy needless fear.
Feeding your faith helps starve your fears.
EXPECT RESULTS :
Ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss. – James 4:2-3
Are all your needs met today? If not, why not?
According to the Word of God, it’s either because you’re not praying about them at all or because when you do pray, you’re praying wrong.
What does it mean to pray wrong? In many cases it simply means to pray without expecting results. Many believers do that, you know. They use prayer as a kind of spiritual wishbone. They just play around with it. “This probably won’t do much good,” they think, “but who knows? It won’t hurt to give it a try.”
If that’s been your attitude, then change it! Start getting serious about prayer. Stop praying just because it’s proper. Stop praying just because you always pray at this point in the church service. And start praying to get results.
Start praying in the Name of Jesus, according to the Word of God, and expecting to receive what you ask for every single time. Isn’t that a little presumptuous? No, but it is bold, and you have a scriptural right to be bold.
According to the Word of God, you have a standing invitation from your heavenly Father to “come boldly unto the throne of grace, that [you] may obtain” (Heb. 4:16). That word obtain is a word of certainty. The dictionary says it means “to get possession of.”
So pray, expecting to get possession of what you need, not just once in a while, but every time! When prayers do go unanswered, don’t just wander away saying, “I guess you never know what God’s going to do.” Tackle the problem with both hands! Go to God in prayer and in the Word and find out where you missed it and get the problem corrected.
When you go to God in accurate, Word of God based, Spirit inspired prayer, you do know what He’s going to do. He’s going to answer you. He’s going to meet your need exactly as you asked Him. Start expecting Him to do it today.
OUR LOVING FATHER :
Luke 11:11 – “If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?”
The most loving Father in the world cannot compare to our heavenly Father and the love He has for us. And yet, many times, we find it easier to believe in the willingness of a father or mother or mate to help us than in the willingness of God to use His power on our behalf. Relatively few people really doubt God’s ability, but rather, it is our doubt of His willingness to use His ability on our behalf that causes most people to do without. Jesus is assuring us that God’s love, and His willingness to demonstrate that love, is far greater than we can ever experience in any human relationship.
The Lord didn’t just save us out of pity or a sense of obligation as our Creator. He saved us because He loved us (John3:16). It was the “good pleasure of his will” for us to become adopted sons (Eph.1:5). We are wanted and accepted by our Father! What a wonderful thing this is! It would have been more than any of us deserve to be forgiven by God. Then to be given certain rights and privileges would have been more than we could have expected. But the Lord went further than that. He has actually accepted us.
The dictionary defines “accept” as “1. to receive gladly; 2. to receive into a place or a group” (New American Heritage Dictionary). The Lord does not just tolerate us; He actually loves us. He even likes us. He rejoices over us with joy (Zeph.3:17).
THE REASON MOST CHRISTIANS ARE FAILURES AND USELESS IS THAT THEY ARE DEMONIZED AND HAVEN’T RECEIVED DELIVERANCE BECAUSE THEIR CHURCHES DON’T BELIEVE IN IT OR PRACTICE IT LIKE JESUS AND HIS DISCIPLES DID
Matthew 4:24 Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them.
Matthew 8:16 When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick, 17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: ” He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses.”
Matthew 10: 7 And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.
Luke 8:1 Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with Him, 2 and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities — Mary called Magdalene, out of whom had come seven demons,
YES IN ORDER FOR CHRISTIANITY TO PROSPER AND FLOURISH TODAY WE NEED TO GO BACK TO THE SUPERNATURAL AND THE POWER OF GOD
1 Corinthians 2:
1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God.
2 For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
3 I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling.
4 And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,
5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
THE BIBLE SAYS JESUS HEALED A PERSON BUT IT WASN’T COMPLETE?
MARK 8:22 Then He came to Bethsaida; and they brought a blind man to Him, and begged Him to touch him.
23 So He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the town. And when He had spit on his eyes and put His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything.
24 And he looked up and said, “I see men like trees, walking.”
25 Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly.
PRAYER FOR THE DAY :
“Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” (Ephesians. 6:13)
Dear Lord God, I praise You. I honor You. I see Your face in every sunrise. Your smile breaks through the cloud with splendid sunshine this morning. The sun bursts forth like a radiant bridegroom after his wedding. The angels of the Lord clap their hands and sing joyously around the throne of grace on this glorious day. Let the light of God shine upon me and show me the way I should go. Put on me with the full armor of God in order for me to resist all evil’s power and achieve all good deeds for the glory of God at this End-time period. Bless me O God! Remember me with favor for all I do in Your name.
Gratefully, in Jesus’ holy name. Amen !!!
