HAVE A TEACHABLE SPIRIT
Acts 28:27 New Living Translation
For the hearts of these people are hardened,
and their ears cannot hear, and they have closed
their eyes—so their eyes cannot see, and their
ears cannot hear, and their hearts cannot
understand, and they cannot turn to
me and let me heal them.
Mark 7:7-9, 13 New Living Translation
JESUS is speaking:
"Their worship is a farce,
for they teach man-made
ideas as commands from GOD.
For you ignore GOD’S law and
substitute your own tradition.”
“You skillfully sidestep GOD’S law
in order to hold on to your own tradition.
And so you cancel The Word of GOD in
order to hand down your own tradition."
FAITH IS ALWAYS NOW!
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.
Heb. 11:1 NLT
So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. 2 Cor 4:18 NLT
Faith is simply believing what GOD says rather than what you see or feel here in this natural realm. You'll find that faith is always now. It is not "GOD is going to do something for me." As long as your words put it off in the future, it will always be in the future because you haven't yet received. Your faith brings it from the spiritual realm where GOD lives, into this natural realm where you live.
If you abide in ME, and MY Words
abide in you, you will ask what you
desire, and it shall be done for you.
John 15:7 NKJV
FIRST: Abide in JESUS. This means you must be born again. When you are born again you are in CHRIST.
SECOND: HIS Words abide in you. Find, study then go over and over the Scriptures that pertain to your desire. Sow them into your heart by speaking them aloud. This is how you get GOD'S Word to abide in you. Not only must we abide in HIM, but HIS Word must abide in us.
THIRD: When GOD'S Word abides in you, you don't have to worry about whether or not what you're praying is TheWill of GOD. GOD'S Word is HIS will, and when you pray The Word, you are praying out GOD'S Will for your life.That is how you know that what you ask in prayer shall be done.
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know
that He hears us, whatever we ask,
we know that we have the petitions
that we have asked of Him.
1 John 5:14-15 NKJV
