“…that you made a fatal mistake when you sent me to the Lord your God and said, ‘Pray to the Lord our God for us; tell us everything he says and we will do it.’”
The Most Important Thing pt 1
We have been sharing a lot lately about praying for our loved ones; about standing on the promises of God’s Word; about not negating our prayers with our unbelief…
I just want to emphasize the “Most Important Thing” or the “Most important denominator” in all of these sessions lately.
I say “the most important thing” – not to exclude ANY part of God’s Word – but to make you think about what I’m about to share. IF you hold onto this one aspect – EVERYTHING in your life will begin to change…
And it will begin to change IMMEDIATELY.
What is that most important thing?
That is KNOWING your prayers are answered – even before you pray – but especially once you pray! AMEN!
How do I know that I have the petitions that I desired of Him? Because I KNOW He heard me! How do I know He heard me? Because I prayed according to His Will.
How do I know I prayed according to His will? Because I prayed what was in His Word! And God’s Word IS God’s Will. Amen!
So, when you pray according to God’s Word – you are AUTOMATICALLY praying according to God’s Will. Glory to God!
Let’s look at the opposite perspective for a moment to show you how self-centered we can be…
If God does not keep His promises in His Word – every single one of them – the HE IS A LIAR and not God!
Don’t think I’m being blasphemous right now – I’m not. I’m saying, if God’s Word does not work ALL OF THE TIME – Then there are some areas where the Word of God will not work.
And if God’s Word does not work ALL of the time – then there are some areas of life where someone else is God in those areas, namely – the devil.
Which would then mean that Jesus did not completely defeat the devil. Which means there is still the possibility that your sins are not paid for…
See how silly; how stupid, that perspective sounds?
Do not accept that lie from the devil. Find a promise in God’s Word and STAND on that promise. If the devil or if your mind or your body tries to tell you “It didn’t work this time…” Just say out loud “Devil – YOU are a liar. God’s Word says ….” And then quote the scripture you are standing on… amen!
We will take it up here tomorrow as we are all out of time for today. But I want to encourage you to read the Word of God and find the answer to your problems in the Word of God and STAND ON THOSE SCRIPTURES!
Praise God! Do not compromise! EVER!
