Hows Your Balance? September 18, 2011

Good Morning All,

Praise God , I am up early in Gods word and it is so good to start the day as we should. Sometimes our lives can get so unbalanced and nothing seems to work right. Even in our bodies, there are times we we are unbalanced and its not a good feeling and you may have to take medicine or vitamins to get regulated or balanced. Well in our lives with God it is very importance that we live a balanced life. Let look at a scripture and see why.

1 Peter 5:8

Amplified Bible (AMP)

8Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [[a]in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.

We need to be well balanced so that we are not opening a door for Satan to come in and bring destruction on us. We are the ones that have the authority over him and have the responsibility of keep the doors closed. Pastor Rick and I are teaching a course right now on the Believers Authority, it is so important in these last days for the children of God to know who they are and walk in the authority and dominion God has given us. You can catch us live Mon thru Friday at www.livestream.com/pathwaytovictorychurch at 7pm Eastern Time and Sundays at 2pm.

Balance is something you have to work on everyday, because there are constantly things coming at us to KNOCK US OFF BALANCE

Isaiah 33:5-6

King James Version (KJV)

 5The LORD is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness.

 6And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.

Once of the main ways you can keep you balance is to stay STABLE!! Wisdom and knowledge that come from the word of God shall be the STABILITY of your times!!!!! When you have the wisdom and knowledge of the word of God you can stay balanced and Stable and then you are able to STAND FIRM when an attack comes you way!

PEACE

Colossians 3:15

Amplified Bible (AMP)

15And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].

One of the ways you can tell if you are in BALANCE is by checking your Peace gauge. If you are out of Peace, something is out of balance.

Psalm 147:14

New King James Version (NKJV)

 14 He makes peace in your borders,
         And fills you with the finest wheat.
When you are walking according to the WORD and Gods plan for your life you with have that Peace from the Holy Spirit within, no matter what circumstances you may be going through. Its an internal Peace.
Psalm 29:11

New King James Version (NKJV)

 11 The LORD will give strength to His people;
         The LORD will bless His people with peace.God desires and has equipped His people to walk in Strength and Peace.If it is God’s desire for us to walk in Perfect Peace why aren’t we, what are some of the things that may be out of Balanced in our lives.

#1 Your thought life: Where is your thought life??

Isaiah 26:3

New King James Version (NKJV)

3 You will keep him in perfect peace,
      Whose mind is stayed on You,
      Because he trusts in You.

Here it tells us that we can be in that PERFECT PEACE (no matter what situation you’re in) IF Your mind (thoughts) are stayed on Him!!

Think of a couple of examples of People in the bible in peace when in the natural it was a bad situation….Daniel in the lions den, the Hebrew children in the Fiery Furnace and Stephen while he is being STONED TO DEATH!!

This is just one of the first teachings on BALANCE, but I want you to know something today, that NO MATTER what storm or trial you are going through today, GOD WILL BALANCE IT OUT WITH HIS PEACE, IF YOU BALANCE OUT YOUR THOUGHTS AND STAY YOUR THOUGHTS AND TRUST ON HIM!!

God Bless You my Friend

What are you full of? September 12, 2011

Good Morning all,

As I was preparing this morning for this message, I really wasn’t sure what God wanted me to share with you today, but as my morning went along, it became very clear to me where he wanted me to go.

We have been teaching for a couple of weeks on the Believers Authority. It has been a life changing time for those who have really received the word and acted on it. I know it has been changing me! One of the main points we have covered is that we are in a Spiritual Battle as we see here in

Ephesians 6:12

New King James Version (NKJV)

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[a] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

We as believers need to know who we are against and how we open the doors to allow the attacks to come into our lives. God has given us Authority and Dominion, but most of us are walking in ignorance of what that means and how to walk it out in our lives.

1 Peter 5:8

New King James Version (NKJV)

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because[a] your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

Here we see that we have an adversary that is seeking to devour us, but we do not need to be afraid because in the next verse it tells us what to do, WE NEED TO RESIST HIM AND HE WILL FLEE!  The problem comes from an ignorance of not knowing how to resist the devil. Resisting the devil means giving him no place in your life. No place in your thoughts, your words or your actions!

Philippians 4:8

King James Version (KJV)

 8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Let me tell you a key to living in peace and in the perfect plan of God for your life…. you need to take care of your thought Life and the words of your mouth!! I can’t do that for you, I have a big enough job doing it for myself!! You are responsible for the thoughts coming in your mind and what you choose to do with them!!!

2 Corinthians 10:5

King James Version (KJV)

 5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

James 3:16

King James Version (KJV)

 16For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

Isaiah 26:3

New King James Version (NKJV)

3 You will keep him in perfect peace,
      Whose mind is stayed on You,
      Because he trusts in You.

You have to be aware that Envy and strife opens the door to confusion and every form of evil, and when your heart and mind is stayed on Jesus he will keep you in perfect peace. So I guess what I am trying to say is, Yes there is an adversary roaming around to devour you, but you have the power to let him in or not. It is your choice if you live a life in envy and strife where you open up the door for satan to come in or if you live a life of love and peace where God reigns in all you do. One way you can see what is in someones heart, whether it be love and peace or envy and strife is to listen to the words of there mouth!!!!


Luke 6:45

New King James Version (NKJV)

45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart[a] brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

Whatever is in you will come out of your mouth!!!!! We cannot hide what is in our heart, it will come out eventually in the words of our mouth. Think about the words you have been speaking lately, are they words of faith or fear….Are they words of envy and a\strife or love and peace.

Ephesians 5:18

King James Version (KJV)

 18And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

We mainly spoke about love and peace, but as you are filled with the Spirit of the Living God you will be filled with all of the fruits of the spirit. We just a choice everyday of what we ALLOW in us. What are you allowing to fill up your time, your thoughts and your actions???

You can see our services live Monday thru Friday at 7pm Eastern and Sunday at 2pm or catch the recorded messages. We record the worship also, but make sure you don’t tune out to soon, get the word too!!
