Hello, my brothers and sisters in Christ. Welcome to this episode of the Speak Life Today Podcast. On this episode of The Speak Life Today Podcast. I would like to share with you an outline of a prayer.
THE LAW WAS GIVEN AS A RESTRAINT FOR SIN. (EX.21.:24. (Rom. 13:1-9) You see beloved saints of God the spirit of the law was to teach us that we are to treat others with the same love and respect that we desire for our self. Not to exact revenge.
I am learning more and more that it’s the hard stuff that stretches us and causes us to grow in our relationship with God, and others. I believe that if we can begin to view suffering from God’s perspective and not our own we would be the better for it
This week I’m pressed to go a little different route. This week I would like to share with you a few paragraphs or excerpts from the book E M Bounds on Prayer in hopes of encouraging us and imparting in us a desire to evaluate or re-evaluate our attitudes or views when it comes to the business of prayer.
Now, do you think that I said all of that to convince you that the things that I say, and the way that I say them are always aright? And that everything that comes out of my mouth rejoices the heart of God?
I believe deep down in our souls we all know the importance of prayer. And yet it seems to be the furthest thing from our minds until trouble comes. And for a lot of us, it’s the hardest thing to get around to doing.
Should we be proud of certain things in life? How do we determine what to be proud of? What does the bible have to say about pride?
Before we explore the answers to these questions let’s look at…
1. We are a chosen people. It was the Lord who initiated or first pursued a relationship with us. 2. He ordained us as kings and priest bring forth fruit. 3. The Lord promises that our fruit should remain. Beloved it’s an eternal fruit that remains. 4. We have power of attorney and the use of his name. Which leads us on to the next declaration.
If we don’t have security in our relationship with the Lord Jesus how can we possibly get anything accomplished, and what will we as believers have left to stand on? In the first part of this study lesson series “Acceptance” the statement was made that instead of us asking “who am I in Christ”? We should be declaring “Who we are in Christ”. Well, let’s start declaring our security in Christ just as well as we have declared our acceptance in him.
Accountability causes us to not be so self-centered but forces us to be more outward centric. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Sowing and reaping comes to mind. God is so wise. He has this thing called life all mapped out and He really wants to share it with us.
