Trust Me and I Will Bring it to Pass

Think Small and You’ll Stay Small

Magnify the solution – GOD’S WORD

My people are in survival mode and it is not God’s Best.  Ruling and reigning is God’s Best.

There is a difference between survival and overcoming.  When God restores HE does not bring back to original condition.

Restoration – Multiply; increase; improve, and make better.

God is unlimited, but man can limit Him by continually asking can God do . . . Say “God Can”.

God wants me to remove the limitations I’ve placed on God and myself.

Desire – intense longing; it is easy to imagine myself having it.  I will go into action and will not quit until I possess it.

Process is as follows:

See it in the Word.

  1. Seeing it causes you to desire it.
  2. Imagine having it in my thoughts.
  3. I believe I receive it when I pray.
  4. I shall have it.

I’m increasing my ability to receive by increasing my thinking.  If I can conceive it, I can receive it.

I can shape for myself a better future by reshaping my thoughts NOW!!!

Poverty – a mental and spiritual disease.  What destroys the poor man is his inability to see himself any other way but poor.

My life tends to go in the direction of my most dominant thoughts.

If you can’t imagine it, you’ll never experience it.  Negative imaginations attract negative situations.  You get in life exactly what you sow, and it begins with a thought, idea, and concept.

Most successful people are those who have acquired the ability to see the possible although it looks impossible.The greater your capacity to see possibilities, where others see impossibilities, then the greater your success will be.

The Hearing Ear

June 1, 2018

  1.  Hears

The Hearing Ear is anointed by God to hear His voice. So the hearer can be a voice for God. It attunes itself to spiritual knowledge and understanding, so it can put into practice what it has heard.

 

Like faith comes by hearing the Word of God so living a faithful abundant life comes from recognizing and hearing the voice of God, and doing His will pursuant to His instructional manual – The Holy Bible.

 

“Now the just shall live by faith, but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.” (Hebrews 10:38)

The key to hearing from God is “FELLOWSHIP”. When we fellowship with God, we position ourselves to hear from Him, by taking the time to quiet our minds and hearts through reading, studying, and meditating on the Word of God.

2.  Listens

When you enter into the presence of God through praise, reading, studying, and meditating on the Word on a consistent basis, you will not have any fears and insecurities because you know that God is always with you, and He constantly protects you.

“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:” (James 1:19)

“He that hearkens unto the Lord shall dwell safely, and shall be quietly from fear of evil.” (Proverbs 1:33 NIV)

“MY son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; (Proverbs 2:1-2)

3.  Obeys What it Hears and Understands

The Hearing Ear not only hears God’s voice through His Word, but also follows the Word in his/her life.

“But be ye doers of the Word and not hearers only, deceiving your ownselves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.” (James 1:22-24)

How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:14-15)

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” (Ecclesiastes 12:13)

When we hear, listen, and follow the Word of God, we are executing wisdom, and availing in ourselves under the protection of the blood of Jesus Christ. The blood not only protects, but also cleans and sanctifies unto perfection.

Don’t delay, get into position to hear from God, so you can be a voice for Him – His messenger to the people.

“Draw nigh to the Lord, and He will draw nigh to you . . .”  (James 4:8)

IN HIS PRESENCE

In His Presence there is love

That ascends upon you like a dove.

 

It surrounds you with comfort like a blanket.

 

In His presence you have immeasurable peace that removes all of your doubts and worries of the day.

If only you will take the time to enter into God’s presence everyday.

 

He is waiting for you to open the door;

And receive all the things He has for you in store.

 

Enter His presence today.

Enter His presence today.

And you will experience love, joy, and peace God’s way.

 

Don’t Delay!!!

Enter His presence today.

Once you have sought God, and you believe He is leading you to start a business, then He will prepare you, guide you, and carry you through.

You must exercise faith at all times. You must believe, rely, and have confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ; in the Word of God; and the promises of God.

 

 


Stretching Forth His Hand

April 20, 2018

God is seeking and stretching forth His hand of blessings to those who are sincere about Him (those who are 100% committed to Him – who are steadfast in their faith).

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch, as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” (I Corinthians 15:58)

Those who are established and firmly settled, God will:

1.             Deliver them from all their troubles;

2.             Bless them beyond measure to be a blessing to others;

3.             Answer their prayers; and

4.             Take them to higher spiritual heights through greater wisdom and revelation.

God is calling you to enter into His kingdom today.

Be sure to answer the call,

if you don’t tomorrow you will fall.

Seek God early while He may be found,

and the benefits of love, joy, and peace will abound.

So many people sit in churches and hear the message through God’s called and  appointed  messengers, but do not apply the principles and corrective measures in their lives.

“And you treated as nothing all my counsel and would accept none of my reproof, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when the thing comes that shall cause you terror and panic—When your panic comes as a storm and desolation and your calamity comes on as a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.  Then will they call upon me (Wisdom) but I will not answer; they will seek me early and diligently but they will not find me.” (Proverbs 1:24-28)

Some people go to church for the wrong motive – for example, to find a husband or wife with no interest and no respect for the Word of God.  They do not have a “hearing ear”.

“Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord, would accept none of my counsel, and despised all my reproof.  Therefore, shall they eat of the fruit of their own way and be satiated with their own devices.  For the backsliding of the simple shall slay them, and the careless ease of (self-confident) fools shall destroy them.  But whoso hearkens to me (Wisdom) shall dwell securely and in confident trust and shall be quiet, without fear or dread of evil.” (Proverbs 1:29-33)

The consequence of a non-hearing ear is that you will enter into a backslidden position and remain there until you decide to hearken to Wisdom.  Wisdom will protect you and guide you into a life of abundant love, joy, and peace.

WISDOM FORMULAKnowing the Word of God + Understanding the Word of God + Applying the Word of God = Wisdom

Listen to God and heed His Word.  Reverently honour and Worship Him, for this will save your life from eternal destruction, and keep you on the straight and narrow road that leads to an abundant life.

GOD’S PAVILION

In God’s pavilion He meets your every need.

If you will run to Him and make Him your Rock of Refuge with speed.

He knows your very heart and mind.

He is glorified when you open it and are kind.

Trust in Him with all your heart and He won’t lead you astray.

He will lead and guide you along the righteous way.

He is always there,

So don’t despair.

Just give Jesus your all, and know that you are in the Best of care.

Stir Up the Flaming Fire

April 6, 2018

Stir up, stir up the fire within you, that hearkens to share the truth because it is the Spirit of Truth that aims to comfort.

Take hold and lay hold (use) the power within you to counteract compromise, lies, and false doctrines that permeate this nation.  A nation plagued with corruption and wickedness that seeks to swallow up all men, women, and children that follow and yield to its evil dictates (ways).

However, the corruptive and destructive nature of the world can be overturned, if we as the Body of Christ, individually and collectively use the power (Holy Spirit) within us and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in thought and action.

You must rekindle the fire within you, and keep it burning by obtaining knowledge (reading), understanding (studying), and applying (meditating) on the Word of God.

Rekindle the fire and don’t let it go out, or else you will lose your power to discern truth from a lie.

Spiritual Recycle

February 9, 2018

Recycle – to change the molecular structure of a product

Our inner character is constantly recycled as God purges and molds us into a new creature, doing away with the old and creating the new.

Doing away with the old attitudes and habits, and converting them into positive and holy attitudes and habits.  However, we must have a desire and act on our desire to be recycled – constantly renewed spiritually, physically, and mentally.

Spiritual Recycle – our inner structure changed, molded, transformed by the absorption of the Word of God in our hearts and minds.

 In waiting on the Lord, there is believing, trusting, and depending on God for your every need.

In waiting on the Lord there is:

           Strength

Power

         Peace

Comfort

           Joy

Victory

         Elevation

Bountiful Blessings

Scriptures:

“I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.  Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].”   (Romans 12:1-2)

“But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.”  (Isaiah 40:31)

“Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.”   (Psalm 27:14)

MY CONFESSION BECOMES MY POSSESSION

January 26, 2018

Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.  (Proverbs 4:23 AMP

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it. (Proverbs 18:21 AMP)

For by your words you will be justified and acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned and sentenced. (Matthew 12:37 AMP)

 

If we confess faith-filled words, rather than doubtful words. You will experience the effects of your words because they will manifest in the physical.

Faith-filled Words Doubtful Words
I am more  than a conqueror through Jesus Christ I am defeated.
I believe I receive my healing for the high blood pressure. I’m not feeling well.
I am wonderfully made by God. I’m just a nobody.
God loves me. Nobody cares about me.
God blesses me. I’m hanging in there.
I have the victory through Jesus Christ. God is not answering my prayers.
The joy of the Lord is my strength. I’m feeling sad because . . .

When we confess words out of our mouth, we are sowing seeds.  Positive confessions yield positive actions and results.  Negative confessions yield negative actions and results. Therefore, it is essential that we watch what we say because “you shall have what you say.”  You shall reap what you sow.

All actions begin with thoughts.  As we continue to purify our thoughts by renewing our minds through the Word of God, we will see and experience positive actions in our lives, and sow positive actions in others lives.

Renewing our mind through the Word of God means reading, studying and meditating on the Word daily.  In doing so, we will reach higher spiritual heights in God, and grow closer to God.  A closer walk with God yields revelation, knowledge, and wisdom.

Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing the Word of Truth. (II Timothy 2:15 AMP)

 

 

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

By Kenneth Copeland

As born-again, Spirit filled believers, our stepping in to the overflow of God’s Glory and walking in it daily doesn’t just happen automatically.  No. In fact, it’s possible that we could stand in the middle of the greatest outpouring of God’s Glory this world has ever seen, and just watch it pass us by, never experiencing a drop of it.  What you and I experience in these days of overflow comes down to or mouths.  That’s right, the degree of overflow you and I experience in our lives these last of the last days will be determined by our mouths.  It will be the result of the words we speak.  You see, you and I are where we are right now because of the words we spoke yesterday …and the day before that … and the day before that.  That’s simply the way God created us.  The words we speak day after day carry the same degree of force behind them as the words God Himself speaks – even the same force as the Word that came out of His mouth and created the universe.

All the overflow in Jesus’ life and ministry did not begin manifesting until He began speaking the Word of God – not His own words, but God’s Word (John 12:47-50)  As believers, however, you and I now have God’s Word to speak and God’s Anointing with which to speak it.  . . . Our future is up to us, and it’s all based on the words that we use to  “bringeth forth” things – words to “bringeth forth good things,” or words to “bringeth forth evil things.”

I am the prophet of my own life.  My words – and God’s Word – in my life determine my future.  They determine my health, my wealth and my place in eternity.  My faith-filled words are alive and full of power.  They are enriched -–they are backed – by the Anointing of God, the very power that created the universe.  I am what the Word says I am.  I can do what the Word says I can do.  I can have what the Word says I can have. Out of the abundance of my Word-filled heart, my Word-filled mouth speaks.  Arise and shine!

 

Not a sick day.  Not a broke day.  Not a sad day.  But everyday, an overflow day!

 

By Kenneth Hagin – “ACT ON THE WORD”

For verily I (Jesus) say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.  Therefore, I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.  (Mark 11:23,24)

What you say is your faith speaking.  Therefore, you will always have in your life

what you believe for and say.

Did you notice that the word “say” in some form is in Mark 11:23 three times, and the word “believe” is in that verse only once?

My people primarily are not missing it in their believing, for they have been taught to believe and to have faith.  Where they’re missing it is in what they’re saying.

Jesus said, “When you pray, believe you receive, and you shall have it.  (Mark 11:24)

 

Kenneth Hagin was sick and began speaking doubt, because when his friends asked “How are you feeling?”  He answered “Well, some of the symptoms have come back on me.  Then he remembered that when he would talk about the symptoms, from my inward man would come the words:  I’m well, thank you.  The Word of God says Jesus took my infirmities and bare my sicknesses.He began to change his confession.

What you say, good or bad, is your faith speaking.  If you’re saying, “I’ll never make it,” you won’t.  Proverbs 6:2 says “Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.”

The problem with many people is they’re double-minded.  But the Bible says that we shouldn’t let anyone who wavers in his faith – a double-minded person – think that he will receive anything of the Lord.  (James 1:5-8)  That is why we must hold fast to our original confession of faith, right in the face of seeming defeat.  I know: I’ve done it.  I won’t tell you that it’s easy, because you have to fight your flesh and the devil to do it.  But when you hold your ground and act on the Word, you will see those things, which you say come to pass.
