Do you want to know God's Plan for you life? how to handle a tough marriage situation? finances? paying for kids college? relationship issues with family and friends? First thing to do is stop the fear ! Go to Gods' Word which contains the answer or plan for anything your are facing. Fear paralyzes your emotions and actions, God's Word fills you with faith, sets you free and gives you clarity. Remember, "Fear tolerated is faith contaminated!" If you chose to live in obedience to Gods Word, His Commands, knowing His Promises - fear has to leave! Stop being a "thermometer" which is fear based, to your natural circumstances that seem impossible and be a "thermostat" full of faith which is your supernatural right (righteousness) as a child of God. Speak the Word and "Fear Not" and open your eyes to Gods promises - with God all things are possible! This is Week 2 of 4 of the Sunday morning series "How To Know And Live In Gods Plan" by Pastor Grant.
The bible says you shall be known by your fruit or to the extent you allow God's Word to be manifested in your life. There are 9 characteristics to this fruit and as believers we are responsible to make sure our fruit is growing in all 9 areas. Self Control is one of those areas that is commanded by God that we exhibit and not only does self-control mean saying no to yourself, it also means doing what has to be done. One of the responsibilities the Holy Spirit has is make people do things they don’t want to do to achieve the results they want to achieve. That is done by bring God's Word, His Commands into our remembrance. Please listen/watch this Wednesday night teaching on Self Control.
All of us at some point in our lives have asked God "Whats The Plan?" or "I need to know what you want me to do". Just some of those "things" are: marriage, job, finances, relationships, raising children, relocating etc. Gods Word already has the plan for everything we could ever think of or ask. His Plan or Will is for us to be obedient to His Word or Commands and all of the other "things" will be taken care of. We often ask God on what to do when He has already told us, but we are looking for a different way, our way or the seemingly easier way. Gods plan, is not to harm us but to prosper us, His Word is the Plan for every single one of us. As we become more obedient we move along in the next phase or page of the blue print. Watch this Sundays message on how to know and walk in Gods plan.
This week we continue our Wednesday night series on Love (part 2). Love is 1 of the 9 elements of the fruit of the spirit, or the evidence that we are walking with Jesus. God's Word says if we love Him then we will obey or keep His commands. In His Word (the bible), He commands us to love others and He explains what that love looks like in detail. Jesus said if we are obedient to God's commands on loving people the way He says to love them, then in return, God will love us. Find out what it means to love others the way God says to love not what you think, but what He thinks. God is love! Each Wednesday night lesson begins with current events.
