LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF PSALM 40:7 ( NLT)
" Then I said , "Look , I have come , As is written about me in the Scriptures.”
10 KEYS - THE POWER OF THE WRITTEN WORD
1. As a child of the Most High God , never allow people to tell you who you are not , your life has been written by God . you are still in the process of becoming like Him . Most times we get discouraged about what people think about us . Key - Don't be .Phil 1:6(NIV)"being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
2. Act the script . Be a doer of the word and not a hearer only. James 1:22)"Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”Key- The more you do what the word says , the more you become like Him (The word).
3. Believe the script. Jesus said in scriptures " Fear not: believe only , and she shall be made whole." Luke 8:50 (Amp)"But Jesus, on hearing this, answered him, Do not be seized with alarm or struck with fear; simply believe [in Me as able to do this], and she shall be made well.” Key- believe is a thought in your mind. if you can get this mystery I celebrate you in advance . practice holding God's thought in you MIND . It won't be long , you shall become a wonder to yourself and many.
4. Love the script . Key - If you are not in love with the word , you can't act it. Matt 22:37(NIV)"Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." love is the key. express it , speak it , do it , enjoy it .
5. If you don't know ,what has been written ,concerning you, Satan will always have you for "lunch.". that is why scripture has warned us to " Be sober , be vigilant; because your adversary the devil , as a roaring lion, walketh about , seeking whom he may devour :" 1 Peter 5:8 and Joshua 1:8 (NIV) says "Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” Key- when you do the word you become unstoppable.
6. Good news - what God has written , can never be changed. see how the NLT Version of the book of Isaiah 43:13 puts it " From eternity to eternity I am God, No one can snatch anyone out of my hand. No one can undo what I have done." , your part of the script is "only believe" what has been written. Scriptures say in John 11:40 it is written " Jesus saith unto her ,Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe , thou shouldest see the glory of God?". If you believe , you will see the manifestation of what has been written concerning you.
7. Satan has no access to what has been written , so he cannot change it . Psalm 119:89(NASB)"Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven."remember Satan has been thrown down from heaven , he no longer has access there , where the body of Christ is . (The third heaven). Luke 10:18 (NIV)"He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” NB: Satan's operation is only in the second heaven and here on earth . you child of God is seated with Jesus in the third .see Eph 2:6 . your position is higher than his.
8. What has being written , has being written , demons cannot not break it , Satan cannot change it . your work is to believe it and expect it to happen in your life . John 10:35"If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;”
9. Other people's opinion of you , what they think you are cannot be you if you are truly born again . past life is gone . you have a new one now , so stick to the new one and let God worry about your weaknesses not you . Amen.1 Peter 5:7(Amp)" Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, [once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.” Key- Look unto Jesus ."look" set your mind on Jesus . Heb 12:2(Amp)
10. Thank Him for what has been written concerning you, because "HE" can never fail in your life if you believe "HIM". 1 Peter 5:19(NLT)"So if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God, keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you."
" you cannot believe God and still fail in life "
prayer : father give me the grace to believe you in Jesus name , Amen"
you win ! Amen.
