Father, today I pray that you grant me a fresh anointing, reenergize me in your strength. Guide me to your perfect will through the searching of your word in order to stir revelation unto my readers and I of your great truths. -Amen (Thus it shall be)
Proverbs 15:4 Gentle words are a tree of Life; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit. v.7: The lips of the wise give good advice; the heart of a fool has none to give. v.14: A wise person is hungry for knowledge, while the fool feeds on trash. Jeremiah 29:13 You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. Proverbs 4:23 Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
The heart is the central location in which your life supporting blood is pumped every second of every day. The spiritual meaning of your heart can be described like this, the heart is the core, the central place where hopes, dreams, and the most important things to us are stored. In other words the place in which those things that are dearest to us are kept safe. A sort of treasure chest containing our personal human desires. Ideally that perfect place of having the mind of Christ and our heart and its contents beating right along with the rhythm and purpose of God’s heart. That is when God begins answering our prayers. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you. Place your mind on things that are of the heavenly nature, and those heavenly things begin to become the very desires that take root in our hearts. The Bible reveals a close relationship between prayer, fasting, and authority. Food was the privilege that God gave Adam first. So giving up our own first privileges in a self-denial act allows for God’s presence to draw closer to us. Authority in prayer? Think about that for a minute. Ephesians 6:18 Pray in the spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. My first response is, how does one stay in constant prayer? Well, one way I have recently discovered is brief prayers, as a habitual response to every situation. Second, is that deep level of constant contact in your spirit with God. Consciously staying in touch with the voice of the Holy Spirit, allowing for yourself to stay in step and in tune with the mind of Christ.
Ephesians 5:1 Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. 2: Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God. To imitate God, means to study his character and his thoughts, and then to duplicate the example Christ left for us. The word of God gives us clear cut examples of exactly how we are to live. I recently explained to a good friend of mine, that truth is simple. It is very simple. The truth is never really complicated. We as humans come to this idea that in order to be powerful, something has to complicated. That somewhere deep inside us we search for this long drawn out complicated equation to be the answer to our problems. Yet, it is exactly the opposite. The power lies in the beauty of the simple truth. The Truth will set you free, as we have all heard it said so many times. Jesus Christ, The Cross, The Resurrection.
Romans 2:16 And this is the message I proclaim-that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone’s secret life.
-Branson James- All authority is in the name of the Lord, and all power is in the Holy Spirit, I pray that you discover these truths. -Amen (Thus it shall be)
