The Will of GOD

The Will of GOD

The Will of GOD

According to Eph 5:17, it is unwise if we do not understand what the Lords will is for our life.

While I was in prayer recently, I asked the Lord to show me his will for my life. His response was very quick “My will is in my word”. I committed myself to study the will of God according to his word, I found out his will not only for myself but all Christians. I decided to write this post to share what I have come to understand regarding God’s will.

Doing the will of God can be summed up in one word… OBEDIENCE! When you obey God’s word, you are doing the will of GOD. Your love for Jesus will cause you to obey his word John 14:15 (If ye love me, keep my commandments.)

We are advised in James 1:22 to not only be a hearer of the word but doers. We must be a Practitioner of God’s word. If we are hearers only, we are deceiving ourselves.

  • Psalm 40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
    Psalm 143:10 Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.

To know God’s will you must walk with him, build a relationship with GOD. This is done by reading the word daily, Prayer, Bible Study, Fasting, Worshipping. His promises, provisions and will are in his word.

Let’s look at some scriptures concerning God’s will for our lives:

Surrender: We are to present our body as a living sacrifice to God. (Surrender your all to GOD, your will, mind, emotions) You cannot be Lord over your life and expect Jesus to be Lord as well. You cannot serve two masters! You must surrender your all to the Lord. Romans 12:1

Renew Your Mind: Do not conform (fashion) to this world, but be transformed (metamorphose) by the renewing (renovation) of your mind this is the perfect will of GOD. Your mind is renewed in his word, this further shows the importance of reading Gods word. Romans 12:2

Suffering Servant: It is God’s will for us to suffer for well doing, rather than evil doing. 1st Peter 3:17
Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator. 1st Peter 4:19
For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? But if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God. 1st Peter 2:20

Pursue Holiness: We are to abstain (refrain) from fornication (porneia, harlotry, adultery, incest). Sanctification (Purity/Holiness), Know how to possess our vessel in sanctification and honour, God has not called us to unto uncleanness but unto holiness. 1st Thess 4:3-6

Joy, Praise, and Thanksgiving: Rejoice evermore, Pray without ceasing, and in everything give thanks! 1st Thess 5:16-18

Salvation: God is longsuffering toward us, it is not his will any should perish but that all should come to repentance. 2nd Peter 3:9
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1st Timothy 2:3-4
Live For Gods Glory: Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.1st Peter 4:12

These are only A few scripture’s concerning Gods will for our life. I encourage you to chase after the will of GOD. Make it your first priority (Matthew 6:33) But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness. Meditate on his word daily, we must meditate on his word to understand his will, promises, and provisions for our life.

I have provided some scriptural prayer points below:
Col 1:9 ~Pray to be filled with the knowledge of Gods will”
Col 4:12 “Pray to stand perfect and complete in all the will of GOD”
Heb 13:21 “Pray for the very GOD of peace, to make you perfect in every good work to do his will”

God Bless and Keep You All

The Benefits Of GOD 

The Benefits Of GOD 

Psalm 103:2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

Isn’t it a blessing to be a child of the Most High God? Think about all of the spiritual blessings and benefits he has for those who fear him. Recently I was reading Psalm 103 and I began to meditate on the benefits GOD supplies to his children. The most amazing thing about his benefits is GOD loads us daily. The Following verbs express the benefits of GOD: forgives, heals, redeems, crowns, and satisfies.

Let’s look at some of the benefits of the Lord:

·         God forgives ALL of our iniquities- (If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1st John 1:9)

·         God heals all of our diseases 

·         He redeems our life from destruction and crowns us with lovingkindness and tender mercies

·         The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

·         He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

In Psalms 116:12 the psalmist asks an important question… What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? God is the creator of the universe, we can only offer him our bodies as a living Sacrifice. Offer the Lord the sacrifice of thanksgiving and call upon his name, most importantly obey GOD. Obedience is better than sacrifice, Jesus told us if we love him we will keep his commandments. I wanted to share this psalm with you all, take time to read it in your personal time and I pray it bless you as well.

Most importantly remember God’s benefits daily!

Our Authority with the Blood of Jesus (Prayer)

Our Authority with the Blood of Jesus (Prayer)

the-blood-of-jesus-01-e1320017017245

 

“Ephesians 1:7: Through the blood of Jesus, I am redeemed out of the hand of the devil. • Ephesians 1:7: Through the blood of Jesus, all my sins are forgiven. • 1 John 1:7: The blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleanses me continually from all sin. • Romans 5:9: Through the blood of Jesus, I am justified, made righteous, just-as-if-I’d never sinned. • Hebrews 13:12: Through the blood of Jesus, I am sanctified, made holy, set apart to God. • 1 Corinthians 6:19–20: My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, redeemed, cleansed, sanctified by the blood of Jesus. Therefore, Satan has no place in me, no power over me, through the blood of Jesus. If you really believe those words, the next thing to do is to praise the Lord for it. Here is a word of praise that you might use: Thank You, God, for the precious blood of Jesus. Thank You for the redemptive blood of Christ. Thank You for the justifying, sanctifying, precious blood of the Lamb of God. Blessed be the name of the Lord. I praise You,”

 

Actual Prayer without scripture. This is us testifying on behalf of what the blood of Jesus does for us. Rev 12:10 says we overcome satan by the blood of JESUS and the word of our testimony.

 

“Through the blood of Jesus, I am redeemed out of the hand of the devil. Through the blood of Jesus, all my sins are forgiven. The blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleanses me continually from all sin. Through the blood of Jesus, I am justified, made righteous, just-as-if-I’d never sinned. Through the blood of Jesus, I am sanctified, made holy, set apart to God. My body is a temple for the Holy Spirit, redeemed, cleansed, sanctified by the blood of Jesus. Therefore, Satan has no place in me, no power over me, through the blood of Jesus. I renounce him, loose myself from him and command him to leave me in the name of Jesus. Amen.

 

“Jesus, for You paid the price of my redemption. You shed Your precious blood on the cross. You are the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. And now, Lord, I have taken the blood from the basin and transferred it to my own personal needs by the hyssop of my testimony. Amen.”

Warfare

Sermons-Spiritual-Warfare-1030x687

We are in A spiritual war 24/7 rather we like it or not. As Christians we must exercise the authority Jesus left us while we are here on earth. There is a real enemy walking around seeking whom he may devour. (1st Peter 5:8) This is why our father in heaven provided us with spiritual armor. Ask yourselves “why do we need spiritual armor if we are not at war?” (Ephesians 6:10-18).

The kingdom of GOD has been deeply entrenched in a spiritual war. Like many other wars there are no neutrals, you are forced to support one side or the other.

There is a cost to follow Jesus and unless we bear our cross, and follow him we cannot be his disciple (Luke 14:27). If we are going to be a disciple of Jesus Christ we must utilize all of our weapons of warfare. If we are not utilizing our weapons of warfare, we will live a defeated Christian life. You should want to fight those attacks the enemy sends your way. Stop allowing the enemy to beat you at this spiritual war.

 A few weapons of warfare

Praise- Perfect praise SILENCES the enemy and the avenger.

The word of GOD (sword of truth) – When Jesus was tempted in the wilderness by Satan (Luke 4:1-13), He overcame the devil using the one weapon of THE WORD OF GOD.

The Blood of Jesus- Revelation 12:13 “They overcame him [the devil] by the blood of the lamb, by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their own lives unto death”

Prayer– We are told to pray without ceasing.

The power of our testimonyRev 12:13

The name of JESUS-The NAME OF JESUS is the AUTHORITY we have as we submit to Jesus Christ.

Fasting- Jesus fasted in the wilderness (in those days he ate nothing), and Satan came at the end of it to test Him. By speaking the Word in the face of great pressure Jesus defeated Satan and was qualified to move in the power of the Holy Spirit as a MAN. In this way He was our perfect example in all things.

It is also important to study Ephesians 6:10-18 We must use every piece of armor to resist Satan’s attacks and to stand true to GOD in the midst of those attacks.

Armor pieces:

    • Belt of Truth
    • Breastplate of Righteousness
    • Shoes of peace (Spread the good news)
    • Shield of Faith
    • Helmet of Salvation
  • Sword of Truth (Word of God)

We must continue to commune with GOD daily as he is pouring out his Spirit upon all flesh in these last days. Remember we have power over the kingdom of darkness!

Take back your authority in JESUS name!

Luke 10:19 (KJV) Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
