“Your mind your life” 6

“Building your shield of faith”

Matt 4:1 Then Jesus was led up by the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And after he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he then became hungry. 3 And the tempter came and said to him, “if you are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” 4 But he answered and said, “it is written, ‘man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’”

Ps 119:11 Your word I have (Hidden) treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against you.

The word in you becomes your shield of faith in the time of temptation, test or trial… Battle!

Prov 4:23 Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life.

Luke 6:45 The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.

IN YOUR STORM, YOU BRING FORTH WHAT YOU’VE STORED IN!

James 1:21 Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility (Teachable) receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls.

you can never change your actions until you change your thinking.

How do we implant the word into us?

Josh 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.

The most important way of getting the word in your heart is by keeping it in your mouth.

meditate comes from the Hebrew word: to chew, mutter…

Ps 119:130 The entrance of your words gives light

James 1 BEGINS WITH “Counting all joy when you going through”

“Lift up the shield of faith and ARE ABLE TO quench all the fiery darts (Flaming missiles) of the evil one”

DOUBTS WILL ARISE IN YOUR HEAD BASED ON THE DARTS THE ENEMY BRINGS AND YOU HAVE TO HAVE SOMETHING IN YOUR HEART

IN TRIAL YOU DON’T HOLD ON TO A BELIEF BY BELIEVING… YOU HOLD ON BY SPEAKING…

THAT’S WHY JAMES SAY’S, “Your tongue is the rudder”

YOUR CONFESSION IS WHAT PULLS YOUR MIND INTO COMPLIANCE!

“Your mind your life” 5

“The Bridge To A Successful Life”

The difference between success and failure is coming, hearing and doing.

storms reveal the real you.

what you do demonstrates how good your foundation is.

The word of God is final authority.

Luke 16:1 Now he was also saying to the disciples, “there was a certain rich man who had a steward, and this steward was reported to him as squandering his possessions. 2 “And he called him and said to him, ‘what is this I hear about you? give an account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.’ 3 “And the steward said to himself, ‘what shall I do, since my master is taking the stewardship away from me? I am not strong enough to dig; I am ashamed to beg.
4 ‘I know what I shall do, so that when I am removed from the stewardship, they will receive me into their homes.’
5 “and he summoned each one of his master’s debtors, and he began saying to the first, ‘how much do you owe my master?’ 6 “And he said, ‘a hundred measures of oil.’ and he said to him, ‘take your bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.’ 7 “Then he said to another, ‘and how much do you owe?’ And he said, ‘a hundred measures of wheat.’ He said to him, ‘take your bill, and write eighty.’ 8 “And his master praised the unrighteous steward because he had acted shrewdly; for the sons of this age are more shrewd in relation to their own kind than the sons of light.

There is a system that God has established called seed time and harvest that will last forever.

Jesus said, the unrighteous are wiser than sons of light in this age.

The children of light have not meditated on this system long enough to work it.

The kingdom that you are the strongest in is the kingdom you run to in challenge.

2 Tim 3:15 say’s the scriptures make us wise unto salvation.

When you meditate on the word of God you preview your future.

Every time you start meditating on the word of God you are painting portraits of your future.

Heavenly meditation produces a prosperous destination.

Meditating on the word builds the bridge between knowledge and action.

Joshua 1:7-8 The key is doing what you meditate on.

When you and I meditate on the word of God we build a bridge between where we are and where we need to be.

God always thinks about you in terms of where your suppose to be, not where you are at.

MEDITATING ON THE WORD BUILDS THE BRIDGE FROM WHERE WE ARE TO WHERE WE NEED TO BE.

Mark 3:22 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, he hath beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.23 And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, how can satan cast out satan?
24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand

25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

26 And if satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

“Developing Your Foundation”

NKj Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.

Never allow anyone except God to program your life.

never allow anyone except God to categorize your value.

nas Matt 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of my father who is in heaven. 22 “Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name cast out demons, and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 “And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from me, you who practice lawlessness. 24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine, and acts upon them, may be compared to a wise man, who built his house upon the rock. 25 “And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded upon the rock. 26 “And everyone who hears these words of mine, and does not act upon them, will be like a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand. 27 “And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and it fell, and great was its fall.”

mess Matt. 7:21“Knowing the correct password—saying ‘master, master,’ for instance—isn’t going to get you anywhere with me. What is required is serious obedience—doing what my father wills.
22 I can see it now—at the final judgment thousands strutting up to me and saying, ‘Master, we preached the message, we bashed the demons, our god-sponsored projects had everyone talking.’
23 And do you know what I am going to say? ‘You missed the boat. All you did was use me to make yourselves important. You don’t impress me one bit. You’re out of here.’ 24 “These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock. 25 Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the rock. 26 “But if you just use my words in bible studies and don’t work them into your life, you are like a stupid carpenter who built his house on the sandy beach. 27 when a storm rolled in and the waves came up, it collapsed like a house of cards.”

Matt. 6:19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 “But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal;
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 “The lamp of the body is the eye; if therefore your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light.

23 “But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!

When you meditate on the word your eye becomes single.

Matt. 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of my father who is in heaven. 22 “Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name cast out demons, and in your name perform many miracles?’

2 Cor. 4:6 For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the one who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. 7 But we have this treasure (LIGHT) in earthen vessels, that the surpassing greatness of the power may be of God and not from ourselves

IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO RAISE YOUR SELF IMAGE UNTIL YOU KNOW THE CHRIST IMAGE.

IF YOU ARE NOT BUILDING A CHRIST IMAGE BUT A SELF IMAGE YOU WILL NEED PEOPLE APPROVAL TO MAKE YOU SHINE.

Josh. 1:6 “Be strong and courageous, for you shall give this people possession of the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.

7 “Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which moses my servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go.

9 “Have i not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

WHEREVER THE KING IS RULING AND REIGNING THE KINGS WILL IS DONE

TO BIND MEANS TO IMPRISON, TO LOCK UP

JUST BECAUSE GOD KNOWS SOMETHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN DOESN’T MEAN IT’S HIS WILL OR THAT IT PLEASES HIM

GOD ALLOWS FROM HEAVEN WHAT MAN ALLOWS ON THE EARTH

“THE KEY’S TO RULING AND REIGNING ARE IMPORTANT”

WHATEVER “YOU” BIND ON THE EARTH WILL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN
WHATEVER “YOU” LOOSE ON THE EARTH WILL BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN

Luke 13:11 and, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. 12 and when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. 13 and he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified god.

16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?

JOHN WESLY, “IT SEEMS THAT GOD IS LIMITED TO OUR PRAYER LIFE, THAT HE CAN DO NOTHING FOR HUMANITY UNLESS SOMEBODY ASKS HIM TO”

2 But the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

Q. How do we mix faith? You do it by meditating.

you have to mix, not just get emotional or feel good

your own joy level is based upon your own mixing and determination to stay with the word and do what it says

BE AN ENTHUSIASTIC HEARER.

1. The word profit means: to cause one to gain or yeild a return

2. THE WORD PROFIT ALSO MEANS TO GIVE YOU AN ADVANTAGE OVER SOMETHING.

3. THE WORD PROFIT MEANS TO CONTRIBUTE TO; TO IMPROVE YOU BY REVEALING TO YOU HOW TO STRENGTHEN YOUR WEAKNESSES

Meditating on the word is a mental exercise.

Thinking on the word of God takes effort and discipline.

Ruling and Reigning

REIGNING IS OUR DESTINY

Rom. 5:17 for if by one man’s offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.

AMP Much more surely will those who receive [God’s] overflowing grace (unmerited favor) and the free gift of righteousness [putting them into right standing with himself] reign as kings in life through the one man Jesus Christ (THE MESSIAH, THE ANOINTED ONE).

Col. 2:10 and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority; 11 and in Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ; 12 having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; 15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Rev. 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

PAUL WAS PRAYING FOR THE CHURCH AT EPHESUS TO GET THIS REVELATION

Eph. 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Phillips Trans: that you may receive that inner illumination of the spirit which will make you realize how great is the hope to which he is calling you – the magnificence and splendor of the inheritance promised to Christians – and how tremendous is the power available to us who believe in God. That power is the same divine energy which was demonstrated in Christ when he raised him from the dead and gave him the place of highest honor in Heaven – a place that is infinitely superior to any command, authority, power or control, and which carries with it a name far beyond any name that could ever be used in this world or the world to come.

HE’S THE HEAD, WE ARE THE BODY

Eph. 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus
WE ARE SEATED IN A POSITION OF AUTHORITY IN CHRIST

Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power (authority) to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
