I’m just going to type this up as it is in my phone for ya’ll. It you have questions I can try my best to answer them, but as always I will not debate anything. Here we go:
*Unanswered prayers are both a MYSTERY and a FRUSTRATION.
Psalm 84:11 Amplified Bible (AMP)
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord bestows grace and favor and honor; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
*Our problem is we question the HE instead of the WHO. God is HE and You are Who.
*We judge God more than we judge ourselves!
*Upright means integrity, whole, complete.
*An upright person has every area of life and day under Jesus Lordship.
*Upright doesn’t mean perfect, it means nothing is off limits.
*Your life and your prayer life work hand in hand.
James 5:16 Amplified Bible (AMP)
16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another [your false steps, your offenses], and pray for one another, that you may be healed and restored. The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power].
Ephesians 5:18 Amplified Bible (AMP)
18 Do not get drunk with wine, for that is wickedness (corruption, stupidity), but be filled with the [Holy] Spirit and constantly guided by Him.
*God teaches us how to speak in English before he teaches how to speak in tongues.
Proverbs 18:22 Amplified Bible (AMP)
22 He who finds a [[a]true and faithful] wife finds a good thing
And obtains favor and approval from the Lord.
So How Do You Find A Good Thing?
*Not by going after good thing but to go after GOD. (unrighteousness)
**When God gives you something he wants you to be able to SUSTAIN IT!**
*The gift was bigger than the character.
*Premature good things eventually turn into bad things.
Here is a prayer to start praying: GOD MAKE ME READY FOR THE GOOD THINGS YOU WANT TO GIVE TO ME.
Luke 15:12 Amplified Bible (AMP)
12 The younger of them [inappropriately] said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of the property that falls to me.’ So he divided the estate between them.
Notice how he says “Father GIVE me”.
Luke 15:19 Amplified Bible (AMP)
19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; [just] treat me like one of your hired men.”
Need to stop asking GIVE and start asking for God to MAKE you like what he wants you!
*Delay may be me and not God at all.
Proverbs 11:23 Amplified Bible (AMP)
23 The desire of the righteous brings only good,
But the expectation of the wicked brings wrath
*The trouble is I’m in a hurry but GOD IS NOT!
