Wednesday Weapon {08.31.11}

James 5:16-18 "...prayers of the righteous avail much."

Prayer is such an awesome force when done correctly. Do I mean it can be done wrong? O yes! It has to be fervent and heartfelt. We seem to think that a prayer is just a prayer. Not according to the Word. Elijah prayed and it didn't rain for three and half years, prayed again and the rain came. We sure are dry around here! I believe when we get a revelation of the power of the Word on the inside, it can change things on the outside. When you were born again for instance, that was a heart felt prayer. It changed things forever, it was so real to you that no one can take it from you. You know that you know.

We are going to learn tonight at MCC how to get this to work in our lives. I don't know about you but I would like to see some things change. Join us in our mid-week service at 7pm! Have a blessed Wednesday!

Father thank you for Your Word that gives us instructions to have an effective prayer life. You said that our prayers can avail much and cause explosive, dynamite power to come forth. We believe as we get Your Word on the inside, that it rises up bigger than whats on the outside. Amen.

I Corinthians 2:9-14 "....the natural minded man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God."

Verse 14 "...he cannot know them for they are spiritually discerned..."

What we are connected to in life is so important. If all we do is stay, “Hooked Up” to natural things, we are going to miss out on so many thing that God has in store for us. God has placed so many principles in His Word for us to follow. When acted upon, they can be productive in our lives. God’s ways do not always make sense to our minds, yet if they are from Him, they are for our benefit. Giving, praising, faithfulness to church, all these things open the door to blessings from the Lord. God is not trying to make sense. He expects us to walk by faith. Hook up to Him, allow the Holy Spirit in you to be your guide. When you do this, I believe you will experience those things that can only come through obedience to Him.

Wendesday Weapon {08.10.11}

Joshua 1:8 "This book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day & night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success."

We find in this scripture that God is giving instructions to Joshua, but I think also to us. Prosperity and success may have different meanings to people. It could be wealthy, or healthy. It might be a place of peace and rest. It could be a life with out worry or care. The point is, He tells us our part to do. Then you will MAKE YOUR WAY prosperous and be a success. Obedience to God always pays great dividends. Here is a “breakdown” of what He says to us: 1. Keep a watch over your words. 2. Think about what you think about. 3. Be a doer and not just a hearer. 4. And you will MAKE YOUR WAY prosperous and be a success.

Thank you Father that you care enough about me that you would give me instructions to cause me to be prosperous and successful. I am willing to make adjustments in my life that will cause things to turn around for me. I choose to be a doer of Your Word and not only a hearer. Amen.
