You are supposed to resist all of Satan’s attempts to get you distracted and to get you from obeying the Lord. Resist those attempts, you don’t have to fight with him. He’s already been defeated.

Romans 13:11-14 ~ The Principles of the New Life

“Paul is telling believers that they are lazy, lethargic, half asleep and half awake as they live life.  They are not alert to what is going on around them nor what is happening in their life with all of its influences and where it is taking them. He says we are to put on the Lord Jesus Christ and that means His influence. Christ is already there but I can choose to ignore Him and give myself to other influences. I am to choose to put that off and put Him on.”

James 1:13-18 ~ The Explanation of the Philosophy of Faith

For every believer every single circumstance is designed by God. We get frustrated because we set aside certain times for the study of the Word or fellowship or our version of seeking the Lord and then we pursue our own goals and desires. We have our own things we want to do. But the Lord only has one purpose, to develop our relationship with Him.

Hebrews 4:1-10 ~ Entering His Rest

The persuasion of God to persuade us to surrender to Christ, to trust Him with our whole heart. Not dedicate, not commit, surrender. Some refuse to surrender. They will believe, they will go to church, they will believe everything the Bible says but they will not surrender their life to Christ. They won’t enter into His rest.

When you hear His voice, you shouldn’t harden your heart. We should fear lest we have come right up to that point and never entered in. The same thing is happening to us that happened to the children of Israel, we are hearing but how are we responding? Are we of the persuasion? Do we live by faith?

Ephesians 4:21-24 ~ What It Means to Put on the New Man

Our lifestyle is pagan and we are a hedonistic society. Our culture promotes the very thing Jesus delivered us out of. That is why Paul says, ‘Follow Christ and walk in the light; not in the darkness like the rest of the Gentiles.’

Ephesians 4:19 ~ The Spiritual Sensitivity of the Believer

The Bible isn’t there to draw me to itself. The Bible is there for God to use to draw me to Himself.

Ephesians 4:17-19 ~ Don’t Walk as the Non-Believers Walk

God’s Spirit grieves in us when we choose to go by the way of the human and the flesh and the world instead of the surrender to the Spirit of Christ. When we live according to the flesh, we live as people who cannot perceive.

Job 2

I’m reminded of what Paul said in the book of Romans about his flesh, do you remember what he said about his flesh? ‘There is no good thing that dwells in me, that is, in my flesh.’ So, really, what is a God of love harming by allowing the physical realm to be touched?

II Timothy 2:1-7

You have to approach life with the discipline of a soldier: take care of whatever you can whenever you can and just leave the rest. But we get ourselves involved, we allow ourselves to be interwoven into the various issues of life and that violates what Jesus told us. ‘Be not anxious for your life. Seek first the kingdom of God.’ You don’t have to get all obsessed with it; the Lord will take care of it.

Joshua Chapter 7 & 8

He’s teaching us to go by His Word, not by what we think or how we feel or even what our judgments are; but to totally rely on what He says in His Word. If you are going to cross over the river Jordan and into Canaan you have to be obedient to God’s Word in order to have the victory. If you are disobedient to God’s Word, you lose the battle. That is very important to understand.

Ecclesiastes 9:13-18 ~ The Application of Wisdom to History

The spirit realm and the physical realm are opposites as far as reality and truth goes. Spiritually there is not a thing Satan can do to the believer, not a thing. That is why he works through the physical realm, in order to appeal to our human senses, and to make us forget the reality of spiritual position in Christ.

Ecclesiastes 9:1-6 ~ The Application of Wisdom to Injustice

Solomon says, “The righteous and their works, they are in the hand of God.” He directs our steps. It is His sovereignty; it is His providence that leads and guides us. Enjoy and rejoice in that relationship, rejoice in that over your life, rather than fretting and worrying about life working out for you, because it won’t.

Hebrews 13:1-6

The manner of life that we live in response to Christ is with the promise that He is never going to leave us nor not ever forsake us. He will always be with us. It is living in a constant state of confidence and boldness (not arrogance) that God is with me and He is never going to fail me.

Joshua Chapter 1 ~ What it Takes to Walk with the Lord

Constantly meditating on God’s Word keeps our mind focused on the Lord because when our mind gets focused on other things we get drawn away by temptation. What did it take to walk with the Lord? Meditate. Keep your mind focused on the Lord through His Word day and night. But notice also, the meditation is in order to do it. It’s not just listening, it’s not just reading, it’s doing the Word of God.

Matthew 14:22-36 Part 2 ~ The Lesson of Peter Walking on the Water

Now, there are people who teach from these texts that if Peter had enough faith, he would not have sunk into the waves. What they’re really saying is that if Peter had enough faith, he would have no need to call to Jesus. He wouldn’t need the Lord. Peter says, ‘Lord save me!’ That is what the Lord is there for. It exhibits the weakness of man. It exhibits the faithfulness of God.

Ephesians 2:13-14 ~ Jesus is our Peace

In the human realm, as we live out life and circumstances become very disturbing for us – psychologically, emotionally, physically – we’re looking for an infusion of some kind of peace, tranquility in the area that is all worked up and messed up and worried and afraid.  But it is being spiritually minded – it is in the spirit – that we experience life and peace.  The life of Christ and the peace of Christ.

Ephesians 6:6-8 ~ The Spiritual Perceptions for Serving Christ

These are not psychological principles. It’s a relationship with Christ. Have the correct perception here, because you are not serving men by obeying your master, you are serving Christ. It’s not me taking my orders from the Lord and going over here and having this human relationship. No, this is between me and the Lord. I’m serving the Lord; I’m not serving people.

Acts 20:17-24

I’m going to suffer at the hands of people things that I never would have suffered had I not received Christ. Well, that is not very inviting except for the fact that loving the Lord and receiving the Lord is responding to what He did for me. He suffered at the hands of sinners for me and now He asks me to follow Him suffering at the hands of sinners.
