We should not base how we praise and worship the Father off of someone else. We need to base it on the foundation of the Word of God. Being led by the Holy Spirit and allowing Him to lead us in how He would have us to praise and worship the Father.
It is time. Not just because it’s 2015 and it’s a new year, but because as the body of Christ we have authority. We need to take authority and take back what belongs to us. Finances, health, joy, peace and anything that was stolen from us by the enemy.
Let us come into agreement according to Matthew 18:19, Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
Where there is agreement, there is power. It’s time to take back what the enemy has stolen from us in Jesus name!
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
(Philippians 4:13 KJV)
If God has called us to do something, He has anointed us to do it. Our obedience to Him will bless us and bless others. It will change our outlook on things and can change our life and others. What God has called you to do, you can do it. Just say, I can do it.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:10 KJV)
Jesus tells us in this verse that the thief (the devil) comes to steal, kill and destroy. The devil comes to try to steal the Word from us, he purposes to kill and destroy everything that we have that has been given to us, as in our life, our family and our belongings. The thief doesn’t want us to have anything, but destruction. It’s up to us to stand on God’s Word and overcome the thief. The thief will come, but it’s up to us to either allow him to succeed or for us to take a stand on the Word of God and overcome him. Remember, we are overcomer’s (1 John 5:4)
Jesus also says in verse 10, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
He has come that we might have life (it’s our choice to receive)
and have it more abundantly. It’s part of the Blessing. When we received Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we received the Blessing and its up to us to keep a hold of the Blessing.
The thief is going to try to take the Word that was sown in our heart from us, but we have to stand strong and refuse to let him have it. Guarding our heart and being a doer of the Word (James 1:22) keeps us in the Blessing!
Philippians 4:12-13 (KJV)
I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Philippians 4:12-13 (AMP)
I know how to be abased and live humbly in straitened circumstances, and I know also how to enjoy plenty and live in abundance. I have learned in any and all circumstances the secret of facing every situation, whether well-fed or going hungry, having a sufficiency and enough to spare or going without and being in want. I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].
Philippians 4:12-13 (NLT)
I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
An encouraging word for you:
You can do all things through Christ which “Who”, He is “Who” that strengthens you. Be blessed!
