Moving Forward Through the Madness Pt. 2

Spiritual progress pt. 2

 

Kjv Psa 18:28 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. 29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.

 

Mess Psa. 18:29 I vault the highest fences

 

TRUST GOD; HE’S WORKING ON SOMETHING GOOD!

 

Phil. 4:11 I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. 12 in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret 13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

 

TPT “I’m trained in the secret of overcoming all things”

 

NOTHING CAN STOP YOUR SPIRITUAL PROGRESS

 

SPIRITUAL ACTIVITY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ACTIVITY THERE IS! 

 

NEVER LET NEGATIVE CIRCUMSTANCES ROB YOU OF YOUR CONTENTMENT & PROGRESS

 

MOVE THROUGH THE MADNESS

 

  1. PRAISING GOD IN DARK TIMES IS ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAYS TO TURN OUR CIRCUMSTANCES AROUND

 

SATAN WANTS TO STEAL YOUR JOY

 

Neh 8:10 the joy of the LORD is our strength.

 

“JOY IS NOT BASED ON CIRCUMSTANCES”.  OUR JOY IS BASED UPON WHAT WE KNOW

 

TO MAINTAIN JOY WE’VE GOT TO MAINTAIN A KNOWLEDGE OF GOD’S WORD

 

Kjv Acts 8:4 Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word. 5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. 6 And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. 7 For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. 8 And there was great joy in that city.

 

JOY COMES AS A RESULT OF HEARING THE WORD

 

Kjv John 15:11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

 

AMP Ps 94:12 Blessed is the man whom You discipline and instruct, O Lord, and teach out of Your law, 13 That You may give him power to keep himself calm in the days of adversity  (COMES FROM WORD)

 

THE WORD IS THE SOURCE OF YOUR FAITH.  FAITH IS THE KEY TO JOY

Kjv Phil 1:25 And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith

 

FAITH IS NOT A FEELING…  JOY IS NOT A FEELING

Kjv James 1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations

 

FEELINGS COME WHEN YOU FOCUS ON THE WORD.

YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO SPEND YOUR LIFE CHASEING FEELINGS!

FAITH ACCEPTS WHAT GOD SAY’S Vs WHAT YOU SEE

 

Kjv Acts 16:23 And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely

 

24 Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.

25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

 

THEY TOOK CHARGE OF THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES WITH SPIRITUAL PROGRESS AND KEPT GOING
