Letter to a friend on divine healing and prayer

20160207_135004 copy
Walking by faith and not by sight

Dearest friend:
My own experiences with God and His reality in all aspects of my own life have emboldened me to share and pray for others. I shall continue to pray for them every day as led by the Lord.
Nowadays I kneel down when I take Holy Communion and pray. I find that it’s natural to do so. My spirit leads me to be more clearly aware of the presence of the invisible great and holy God.
The trouble with some who feel that they do not experience God is that they may have taken God’s holy and awesome majestic presence for granted. I have not read anywhere in the Bible that says that God has changed from the Almighty Holy God to a man-like Santa Claus. I am convinced that God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He has revealed Himself in the Old Testament clearly the matters about Him and what He demands of His worshippers. Other religions bow and kneel to their gods. What makes Christians think we are exempted from physically showing our respect and honor to our God?
My spiritual breakthrough came when I learned to bow down (kneel down) before God many years ago. The physical act of faith is real in the spiritual realm. I join the angels and elders in heaven to kneel and worship the real God. Up there.
I pray the words of God by faith for healing and receiving healing. I live by faith in the words of God. No need to reason out why God’s words work. Just believe by faith and receive by faith.
I believe that’s why I have progressed faster in my spiritual walk with the Lord. By faith I carry out the act of Faith. Keep reading the words (especially what I have in my the position in Christ) and proclaiming them. Believe as I proclaim. Do every day as I wake up to face a new day, I kneel down, worship and proclaim the greatness of God and His worthiness to be worshipped and praised; I focus on Him and not on me; I don’t have to keep saying what He has given me. It’s already evident. Even if He hasn’t given me anything or I haven’t received them yet, I give Him praise and thanks. Because he is my Creator and Owner.
Yesterday the young pastor said the same thing. He has broken through in his spirit! Because he has followed the Holy Spirit when he preached. The Lord has confirmed to me what he was going to speak through this pastor’s sermon yesterday before I heard him preaching what I already knew and practiced in my spirit before I went to church and also during the first worship song, “How Great thou Are”. During the singing of this hymn I knelt down despite the fact that no one kneels down in this church. Tears streamed down my cheek when I knelt before the great God in heaven.
My God is real.
I have prayed for the gift of faith for you and for me. We heal others by faith. I ask for the faith of the Son of God to manifest in us. We walk by faith, by the Spirit and by the Word of God in the Bible.
I have started praying for your direction for third year. I asked the Lord which option is the one He has assigned you. So far my answer is W____. I have no definite confirmation yet. I shall continue to pray for you to choose the right place for the right motive and purpose and at the right time with the right co-workers and resources. You too ask the Lord.
Ask and you will receive. Ask for accurate hearing and obeying His will for you, and ask that He confirms in the Bible words. Don’t let human limitations limit God’s best plan for you. Do not follow the old pattern (your past ministry in teaching and sharing the words of God in divine healing, familiar cultural environment, and the language you are already good and comfortable at). You may be called to learn and experience a new ministry and currently seem not to have significant natural resources for it. God will supply you with the gifts and resources in ways you never imagine or dream of. If it is God’s will for you ta take up that new ministry, He will make all arrangements smoothly and open the door for you with good godly mentors and brethren to help you and make way for your internship all the way. He will give you more than sufficient grace and favor from heaven and from earth.
Your role is to ask God, hear Him, and listen carefully and receive confirmation.
I am learning the same too. I have asked the Lord to continue to open each new door, send invitations, hospitality and resources to me through trusted Christians, confirm such initiatives with His words, signs and wonders too. I asked the Lord to finance all aspects of my ministry and assignment in His plan. I asked for divine health to carry out. I asked for Psalm 91 protection. I asked for full armor of God. I asked for His similar blessing for my loved ones.
Ask and you will receive. Ask according to His will and your prayer will be granted.
Love, your brethren in Christ.

Power of effective prayers: New Testament examples

20160130_151531 prayersEffective prayers have helped me. Lately I am more and more aware of my prayers being answered and granted. I have gathered below several New Testament prayers and the condition of the prayerful hearts that God looks for, as recorded in the Scriptures. I pray that many too will find strength and wisdom from the prayers.

What Jesus (and also as testified by the Holy Spirit in the Scriptures) has thus taught His disciples and believers:

  1. Matthew 5:1-12 God is pleased to bless this heart and attitude. God likes a humble heart.
  2. Matthew 6:5-8, 14-15 God looks for the right attitude and motive. God likes a forgiving heart.
  3. Mathew 6:9-13; Luke 11:2-4 The prayer Jesus teaches His disciples to pray to our Father in heaven.
  4. Luke 11:5-13 Jesus teaches His disciples on the prerequisite of prayer: be persistent; take the initiative to pray-ask, seek, and knock; trust God as our Father in heaven who gives good gifts through the Holy Spirit.
  5. Hebrews 11:1-3,6 God is pleased with faith. God rewards faith. We cannot fake faith.
  6. Hebrews 10:35-39 We are saved by faith. God says that we will live by faith. Hold fast to the confidence that we shall be richly rewarded.
  7. Matthew 6:19-34 Jesus teaches us how to set our priorities. Focus on God’s things first.
  8. 1 John 5:13-15 For prayers to be heard, we need to pray according to the will of God. The prerequisite is that we must first know God and know Jesus, the Son of God He sent. Then we shall know His will, and have the confidence to approach Him and ask and know He will grant us those requests.
  9. 3 John 2-4  John’s all powerful and encompassing prayer for believers: Prosperity (success) in all aspects, health and spiritual strength.
  10. Ephesians 1:3, 1:15-23, 3:14-21 Paul’s all time prayers for the believers. To be spiritually open to know God, the hope of His calling, the greatness of His power toward those who believe, to be strengthened with power through the Holy Spirit in our inner men, to be rooted and established in God’s love (the love of Christ).

Power of effective prayers

a better way to prayPrayer is one of the most powerful defensive (and offensive) weapons in the full armor of God that Jesus has left with us. Before He left this earth He repeatedly urged the disciples to watch and pray. Jesus knows the power of prayer and prays all the time. He still prays (intercedes) for Christians while sitting at the right hand of God today. (Romans 8:34)

I have found many good teachings on prayers over many years. I have learned from them and been transformed in my prayer life and living before God.

I put some of the good stuff on a plate now and hand to you: Here are some good prayer teaching resources from Andrew Wommack for Christians. I pray that readers will be encouraged to listen to them: http://www.awmi.net/audio/audio-teachings/#/awm_y03_kindsI.mp3

Managing anger and emotions (resources)

We have seen many patients who suffer the symptoms to physical and mental (including emotional) illnesses with the root traced back to uncontrollable anger (and other emotions) and prolonged inability in coping with the related stress. Today this blogger is led to share this teaching by Andrew Wommack. I take the liberty to share the the links for audio download.  We all need this teaching. Let’s listen together and be rid of the lies and deceptions that have hurt many of us for so long. By now many are aware that substance (alcohol, drugs, many forms of addictions including excessive food, other forms of excessive and immoral sensual gratifications, anything that hurt and harm your own conscience, that some have resorted and to which are bound in bondage) abuses can only bring further damages in your bodies and your souls. Please listen and be healed from uncontrollable anger (rage) and unharnessed emotions. One very good related teaching is Andrew Wommack’s teaching on Spirit, Soul and Body too.

Anger Management by Andrew Wommack
Every person deals with anger. There is no escaping it. But are we dealing with our anger the way God’s Word instructs us to? There is a type of anger that is godly, but even the more common, ungodly anger is very misunderstood. It’s not people and circumstances that make us angry. In this teaching, Andrew shares truths from God’s Word on the subject of anger that are as rare as gold. An ungodly anger is the social norm today. Psychology’s diagnosis of the cause and treatment for anger is totally off-base. God’s Word tells us all we need to know to manage our anger in a godly way.

Harnessing Your Emotions by Andrew Wommack

We all have emotions, but do they rule us or do we rule them? Psychologists and Christians alike agree that actions are the result of inner thoughts and feelings, emotions. But that is where the agreement ends. The Word says that sin is conceived in our emotions. If that is true, then the Word must also give us a way to harness our emotions. Andrew’s teaching will present you with a new perspective on emotions.

Anger Management (original article by By Andrew Wommack)Have you ever been mad at God? Certainly, everyone has had anger rise up against a person. And there are a lot of people who are angry with themselves. Anger is a problem all of us have to deal with.

Many people come from backgrounds where strife was just normal. Our culture is so full of envy and strife that it’s become part of life. We don’t realize how deadly it is. But realize it or not, strife will kill you. Listen to what James had to say about envy and strife:

“For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.” (James 3:16)

Think about what this verse is saying for a moment. Envy and strife bring EVERY evil work. That is quite a revelation! You could be giving tithes and offerings and trusting God in the area of your finances, but if you’re living in strife, you are opening the door to poverty. You could be trying to take care of your body and meditating on healing scriptures, yet envy and strife will negate all of that and bring sickness and disease. No one who is trusting God for victory in any area of their life can ignore dealing with anger and expect to succeed. It’s that important.

This doesn’t mean we are supposed to be emotionless or totally passive people. There is a proper use of anger. If we don’t understand this and try to completely do away with anger, we will not succeed, and we will become passive in a way that allows Satan to run over us. There is a godly purpose for anger.

GODLY ANGER

Think of this: Every person on the planet has a temper. Why do you think that is? Do you think the devil created anger? No way! Satan never created anything. He doesn’t have the power to create. All he does is pervert the godly things God created.

It’s God who gave us the capacity to get angry. Anger has a godly function. But with most of us, it’s been perverted. We don’t need to get delivered of a temper; we need to learn how to manage that anger and direct it the way God intended — not toward people, but toward the devil and evil.

There is a well-known passage of Scripture that talks about a positive use of anger. Yet this passage is most often interpreted in a way that loses the true intent of what Paul was saying. Ephesians 4:26-27 says,

“Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil”.

This is usually interpreted as, “God knows you are only human, and you will sometimes get angry. That just happens. But it doesn’t become sin unless you let it persist. So make sure you confess and forsake your anger every night before you go to bed.”

There is no doubt that getting over anger quickly has great benefit. Confessing and forsaking anger before you go to bed every night is a good thing to do. But that is not what this verse is teaching. It’s nearly the opposite.

Paul is saying there is a godly anger that is not sin. God gives us a command to get angry with a righteous anger. Then he says, “Let not the sun go down on your wrath”. What happens when the sun goes down? Typically we stop working. The day winds down, and we rest and go to sleep. Paul is saying, “Don’t let this godly anger ever stop working. Keep it awake. Stir it up and keep it active!” Then verse 27 continues, “Neither give place to the devil”. If we don’t keep a godly anger active within us, we are giving place to the devil. What a revelation!

There is a righteous use of anger. Not understanding this has rendered many Christians so passive, they don’t get mad at the evil in this world. Therefore, Satan is having a free shot at everything we hold dear and holy. Our society is under attack, and our righteous anger that God has given us as a weapon is kept in its sheath and not used. This needs to change.

Look at what the Word of God has to say about a right use of anger:

“Ye that love the LORD, hate evil”. (Psalm 97:10)

“The fear of the LORD [is] to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate”. (Prov. 8:13)

“The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom”. (Psalm 111:10)

“The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge”. (Prov. 1:7)

“Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good”. (Rom. 12:9)

These are just a few of the scriptures that speak of a righteous use of hate and anger. Look again at Proverbs 8:13: “Pride and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward [literally, perverse] mouth, do I hate”. Do we really hate those things? We should, but Christians as a whole do not hate evil. We don’t like evil, but few would argue that we literally hate these things. Some Christians don’t believe that we are supposed to hate anything, but that’s not what God’s Word says.

Jesus was sinless, but He had hate and anger. In John 2:14-17, which took place at the beginning of Jesus’ earthly ministry, and then in Mark 11:15-17, which took place the last week of Jesus’ earthly ministry, Jesus drove the money changers out of the temple. He didn’t approach them meekly and say, “Guys, I’m sorry. I don’t want to hurt any of you, but I have to do this to obey my Father.” NO! He made a whip and beat the people and animals and turned over their tables. He was mad.

Where were the temple guards? I’m sure they were there, but Jesus was in a holy rage that paralyzed them from action. It’s certain that Jesus never sinned, but it’s also certain that He got very angry to the point of action. Therefore, there is a righteous anger. We need to discover the righteous use of anger and channel all of our aggression in the proper way. So, there is a right place for anger. But what about the wrong use of anger? All of us have to deal with getting mad at people. How do we overcome our unforgiveness and anger toward people?

UNGODLY ANGER

Have you ever prayed that the Lord would remove someone from your life who makes you angry? Have you ever prayed that your circumstances would change so that you would be delivered from those things that make you mad? If you have, you are not alone. But it’s not what others do to you that makes you angry. You will never be able to remove all aggravating things and people from your path. That’s unrealistic. Satan has more than enough people under his control to keep an endless parade of annoying people coming across your path.

You can’t always change circumstances, and you don’t have the authority to change others. But you can change what’s on the inside of you that makes you angry. That’s right. Our anger comes from the inside, not the outside. I know most people don’t like that. At first, it’s comforting to think that it’s what someone else did that made you angry, but that’s not true. If what other people do makes you angry, then you will always be angry because there will always be someone that treats you wrong. That makes you a victim and not a victor.

Accepting responsibility for your ungodly anger puts you in the driver’s seat. You only have total authority over yourself. You are the only one that you can really change. If you are trying to remove all the people and things that make you mad from your path, you will never win. But if you deal with the things inside you that cause your anger, you will never lose, regardless of what others do. That’s the example that Jesus gave us. He was able to look at the very ones who crucified and mocked Him and say,

“Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do”. (Luke 23:34)

Jesus not only suffered more than any of us ever have, He suffered more unjustly than we have. As God, He could have come off the cross at any time and wiped all of His accusers out. Yet He humbled Himself and even forgave His enemies. Some people think, “Well that was Jesus. I’m certainly not Jesus.” But Jesus wasn’t the only one who forgave those who wronged him. Stephen acted just like Jesus in Acts 7:60. As he was being stoned to death, he knelt down and cried with a loud voice,

“Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep”.

Paul commanded us to do the same thing in Ephesians 4:32:

“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you”.

Not only are we supposed to resist anger, but we are commanded to forgive those who trespass against us. We can’t control others, but we can control what’s inside of us that makes us angry. The key is found in Proverbs 13:10:

“Only by pride cometh contention”.

It’s not what others do to us that makes us angry; it’s the pride inside of us that causes us to get mad. I know that’s not what most people believe, but that’s what God’s Word says. This verse doesn’t say that pride is one of the major reasons for anger — it’s the only reason. What a statement!

I ministered this in Pueblo, Colorado, many years ago, and a man came up to me after the meeting and said, “I’ve got a lot of problems, but pride isn’t one of them. If anything, I have such low self-esteem that I hate myself. Yet I have a lot of anger. I just don’t understand how my pride is the source of my anger.” What this man was missing was a proper definition of pride.

Many people think of pride only as arrogance. But that’s only one manifestation of pride. Timidity and shyness are extreme manifestations of pride. Pride, at it’s core, is simply self-centeredness or selfishness.Timid and shy people are extremely self-centered people. I know this to be true because I was an introvert. I couldn’t look at people in the face and talk to them. I was so consumed with me that I was always thinking, “What are they going to think of me? Am I going to make a mistake and look foolish?” That self-centeredness made me shy.

If you have a testimony about what the Lord has done for you that could help someone, yet you would be timid about getting on radio or television and sharing it because everyone would be looking at you, then you have some pride issues that haven’t been settled. You may not be called to broadcast on radio or television the way I am, but we are all called to, “be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.” (1 Pet. 3:15)

So, pride is not only thinking we are better than others; pride can be thinking we are worse than others or just being self-conscious. It doesn’t matter if self is always exalting itself or if it’s debasing itself. It’s all self-centeredness, which is pride. Like it or not, understand it or not, pride is the source of all of our anger. As we deal with our own self-love, anger toward others will be defused. The only reason we are so easily offended is because we love ourselves so much. As we die to ourselves, we will be able to love others the way that Jesus did.

I have a lot more to share on this than what I was able to put into this article. I have a teaching entitled Anger Management. This is a three-part album that deals with truths I’ve never heard anyone else teach. I’m sure others teach this, but it’s certainly not common. The first teaching, entitled “Godly Anger,” will show you the proper use of anger. This is necessary in resisting Satan and his evil. The second teaching, entitled “Ungodly Anger’s Source,” will explain how self-love is the root of all of our ungodly anger. This is a must for anyone who struggles with a temper (all of us). The third teaching is entitled “Anger Toward God, Others, and Self.”

Harnessing Your Emotions (original article by By Andrew Wommack)

The Bible teaches us that our thoughts are the determining factor which controls our actions. Proverbs 23:7 says, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Romans 8:6 says, “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” Notice that carnal mindedness doesn’t just tend toward death — it is death!

No one can consistently perform differently than the way they think; therefore, we cannot change our actions without changing our thinking. It’s not just what we think about that needs changing, but we must change our thinking process. Our emotions are linked directly to how we think.

All people have a perception, or image, on the inside of them of what they are like. This image is not necessarily based on facts but on feelings. One negative experience can distort a person’s perception of themself for a lifetime.

For instance, some people who are beautiful may think of themselves as ugly or undesirable because of unkind words spoken to them as a child. Some who achieve great success still see themselves as failures, which becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

To a degree, psychology has correctly diagnosed this problem. Psychologists use terminology such as “self-esteem” or “identity” in relating these truths; however, today’s secular wisdom is totally inadequate to help a person change the inner self image.

First, most people shift the blame for bad self-esteem, or self-image, to someone else. It has become popular to blame others for every negative thing in our lives. People often say, “I came from a dysfunctional family,” “My problems came because I’m part of a minority group,” “It’s that woman you gave me” (Gen. 3:12). Other people are not our problem!

All of us have had negative experiences. The choice is ours whether we become bitter or better as a result of them. For every person who can claim some dysfunctional behavior because of a traumatic experience in their life, there are others who have had similar or worse things happen to them, yet they overcame their circumstances. Why? Because problems do not dictate failure; we have a choice.

Deuteronomy 30:19 says, “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” God Almighty gave us a choice. God doesn’t make the choice for us, and Satan can’t make it for us. We have the privilege and responsibility to choose blessing or cursing.

Placing the blame on others is denying the real problem, and it will prevent finding a solution. If other people are my problem, I’m in trouble because God did not give me the ability to control other people. The devil will always send someone across my path who knows how to hit my hot button.

If the problem is within me, then there is hope because through Christ, I can change. This is freedom. Regardless of what others do, I can prosper through Christ.

After psychology tries to place the blame for your problems on someone else, they try to bolster your self-esteem by having you focus on the positive things in your self and minimize the negative attributes. That’s not what the Bible teaches. Jesus said, “For without me ye can do nothing” (John 15:5).

“Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me” (Mark 8:34). Paul said, “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are” (1 Cor. 1:27-28).

The Bible teaches that there must be an end to self-esteem before true service can begin. Christians should not try and store up the feeble positive attributes of their personalities. That is like trying to stop the bleeding from an amputated arm with a Band-Aid; it won’t work for long.

Regardless of how successful or talented we are in ourselves, we will eventually fail. If nothing else, we will get older someday and will not be as productive as before. If our self-esteem is rooted in our accomplishments, then it will ultimately fail. All the security we have found in ourselves will then come crashing down around us.

The Christian should have Christ-esteem. Just like the Apostle Paul said, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Gal. 2:20).

The secret to victorious Christian living is not found in self-improvement but in self-denial so that Christ can live through us.

This does not mean that God wants us to have a bad self-image. It just depends upon which self we are talking about. You see, every born-again believer has become a new person in Christ (2 Cor. 5:17). (Eph. 4:22-24).

The old man is corrupt and, at his best, is incapable of living the Christian life. This is the self that most people try to patch up and feel good about. Give it up! We have to die to this old self life with all its good and bad, and find a new identity in Christ.

The new man is exactly as Jesus is (1 Cor. 6:17)! That’s right. We are a totally brand-new person in Christ. We have everything that Jesus has, in our spirits (1 John 4:17). We have a totally new identity in Christ. Why then would we want to fix up our old selves instead of just living in our new selves?

If we let the new man dominate us, we’ll walk in power and victory in every area of our lives.

How can you tell if your thoughts and emotions are coming from the new, born-again self or the old carnal self? God’s Word is the key. Jesus says in John 6:63, “The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” Any thought or emotion that agrees with what God’s Word says about you is from your new man. Any thought or emotion that violates God’s Word is from your old man or the devil.

If you are angry at someone, you’re in the flesh (old man). Just repent and get back in the spirit (new man) where you have love, joy, and peace (Gal. 5:22). If you are afraid, you’re in the flesh, “for God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Tim. 1:7). Instead of going to God and asking Him to remove the fear, just step out of the flesh and into the spirit where there is no fear (1 John 4:18).

This is so simple you have to have someone help you misunderstand it. The problem is that we have had a lot of help misunderstanding these simple, biblical truths, but we have a solution.

harnessing emotionsSummary:
Sin is Emotional
This teaching reveals that positive emotions are not optional. God commands us to take control of our emotions. In fact, sin is conceived in our emotions. A person who doesn’t master their emotions is a person who cannot overcome sin.
Self-Esteem
Emotions are a result of how we think. A person who has low self-esteem is going to be depressed. But how does this square with the statements of God’s Word about denying ourselves and becoming nothing in our own sight before God can use us? The answer lies in Christ-esteem, not self-esteem. Our born-again self is the only part of us that we need to esteem. Anything less is destined to fail.
Identity in Christ
We need to analyze and then identify with the new self that we have become in Christ. This teaching will give you a look at who you are in Christ that very few Christians have seen. This is life-changing and one of the major keys to a victorious life in Christ.

 Every person deals with anger. There is no escaping it. But are we dealing with our anger the way God’s Word instructs us to? There is a type of anger that is godly, but even the more common, ungodly anger is very misunderstood. It’s not people and circumstances that make us angry. In this teaching, Andrew shares truths from God’s Word on the subject of anger that are as rare as gold. An ungodly anger is the social norm today.

Andrew’s Book – Spirit, Soul & Body
This book contains the foundational revelation to everything Andrew teaches. It’s a must-read for every believer.

Book Description

Have you ever asked yourself what changed when you were “born again”? You look in the mirror and see the same reflection – your body hasn’t changed. You find yourself acting the same and yielding to those same old temptations – that didn’t seem to change either. So you wonder, Has anything really changed?

The correct answer to that question is foundational for receiving from God. If you lack this basic understanding, you’ll forever ask yourself doubt-filled questions like: “How could God love somebody like me?” and “How can I possibly expect to receive anything from the Lord? I don’t deserve it, I’m not good enough!”

Spirit, Soul & Body will help you to eliminate those and other doubt-filled questions that destroy your faith. If you have trouble receiving from God, this is a must-read!

how to maintain your healing – continue to fulfill God’s will

How To Find, Follow And Fulfill God’s Will? this is the whole process for a healed person. Not merely healed physically or mentally, but continues to retain divine health in all aspects of life. Jesus has given every believer abundant life. It is a gift of God. Know what He said. This health blogger strongly recommends to ever reader of this blog. You will find what you have been seeking.

Here is an excerpt of a testimony of a man who has sought and found God’s will.

“I graduated from high school and began college still with no clear direction. I was a math major because that was my best subject. However, I was still seeking the Lord with all my heart for His perfect will for my life. In the middle of my first year of college, I came across Romans 12:1-2, which says,

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. [2] And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

These verses changed my life. The last part of verse 2 promises that I would prove the good, acceptable, and perfect will of God if I would do as instructed. That’s what I wanted. I began a four-month study of what it meant to be a living sacrifice and to renew my mind. The results were more than I could have imagined.

Just four months after I got this promise from the Lord, God showed up. I had a life-altering encounter with the Lord on March 23, 1968, that I’ve never gotten over and never intend to get over. God did reveal His will to me. It didn’t come all at once, but it came. As Romans 12:2 says, you prove the good, acceptable, and perfect will of God. It comes in stages, or steps.

Within sixty days, I was led to make radical decisions that set my life on a course that has brought me to where I am today. Everything God has done in my life over the last forty-five years began with me seeking Him to know His will for my life. This is the starting line.

You will not fulfill God’s will for your life accidentally….The good news is that the Lord wants you to know His will for your life more than you want to know it. It’s not hard to know. But it does take effort. You aren’t going to discover God’s will until you search with all your heart (Jer. 29:13). As long as you can live without knowing God’s will, you will. But when you want to know and follow and fulfill God’s will more than anything else, then you will.

Knowing God’s will is a starting place, but that’s not the end…Some people have some revelation of what the Lord wants them to do, but very few are depending on God to accomplish it. ..

Our race should be supernatural, not just natural. It’s Christ living in us (Col. 1:27). We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us (Phil. 4:13). There is a way to finish strong (2 Tim. 4:7).

It would be a shame to come to the end of our lives and not have a sense of knowing we accomplished what the Lord created us to do, yet this happens every day. People are rushing toward eternity while letting this precious time we have here on earth slip through their fingers. This isn’t a dress rehearsal. This is the real deal. We have to make our lives count.

I pray the Lord reveals His will to you and how to accomplish it in a greater way than He ever has before. Together, as each of us does what He instructs us to do, we will make a big difference in this world.”  (http://www.awmi.net/extra/article/find_follow)

1 Corinthians 9:23-25 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

23 I do all things for the sake of the gospel, so that I may become a fellow partaker of it.

24 Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. 25 Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.

how to maintain your healing – continue to follow God’s will

How to know you are on the right track of life? Why do those already healed relapse in remission?

Here is my recommendation today. How to follow God’s will? A practical audio teaching series, which can be applied and carried out in all aspects of lives, including the healing you are looking for. http://www.awmi.net/extra/audio/1067

The contents cover: Following The Desires Of Your Heart;  Moses Missed God’s Timing; The Rod Of God; Follow The Peace; The Wisdom Of God In A Mystery.

Here is the link to the Bible commentary on verses used in the teaching: http://www.awmi.net/bible/col_03_15 (e.g. how to “Let the peace of God act as umpire in your heart.” )

quote from his article: “Finding God’s will for your life is essential, but it’s just the beginning. Once you start moving in God’s direction, you have a big target painted on your back. Satan will do everything he can to stop you. If you don’t bump into the devil, it’s because you both are headed in the same direction. You’re going to have all kinds of problems trying to follow God’s will. You can definitely learn from hard knocks. I certainly have. But I don’t recommend it. There is a better way. You can learn from somebody else’s hard knocks. This is exactly what the Scripture has to say:

Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. [7] Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. [8] Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. [9] Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. [10] Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. [11] Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come”….(read the full article at: http://www.awmi.net/extra/article/follow_will )

Here is the book for those of us who like reading at the same time we listen ! I find this a great at way to remember truth and truth changes lives. “One of the most important lessons of all is that you can’t fulfill God’s will any way you want. His strength and timing, and your obedience and patience are just a few of the things it takes. This book explains all this and much more, including how Andrew found, has followed, and is fulfilling God’s will for his life. This will help you on your way to doing just the same!” http://www.awmi.net/store/usa/books/335
