Here are the main points we took away from our last study dealing with idolatry:
1. When we are experiencing discontent recognize what we are pursuing.
What we pursue and what we sacrifice for are important things to look at because they just might be serving as gods in our lives. Idols are insatiable, they always want more and are never satisfied. If we are feeling unsatisfied it’s a good time to ask God, am I pursuing the right things? With God, we can be content right where we are. It doesn’t mean we don’t desire more, but we are okay until God moves us forward.
2. Speak life over our situations and ourselves!
No down talking ourselves!!! We are ready for where God is taking us, he can supply all our needs, he has already supplied all our needs, we are great parents, employees, friends, and children of God, we are worthy, successful, favored by God…the list goes on.
3. Seek peace and pursue it
Always seek peace from God!!! The Holy Spirit lives inside us therefore we should always walk in freedom and peace! Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty! (2Corin 3:17)
4. Anything we ask for in Jesus name he will give us
God hears us! If we believe when we pray and ask for anything in Jesus name he will answer those prayers. I believe in the spirit realm God acts immediately! In many cases we have to respect the process and walk it out until we see the results in the natural! Our responsibility is to have faith!
- You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. (John 14:14 NIV)
- If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” (Matthew 21:22 NIV)
He is always with us because he never leaves us or forsakes us but maybe, just maybe he has already given us all the answers and directions we need…move forward in obedience and God will continue to speak when you are ready to hear more.
I hope this will help someone through the remainder of this week! And I pray that we see you out this Friday! Sign up to come out and grow with us!
