Mark 9:22-23 (KJV)

And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do anything, have compassion on us, and help us. Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

The Aim of this Study:

Whatsoever that is seen is the manifestation of the works of faith.

The Word:

When it is certain that all things obtained or received from God come by simply believing God then our new walks should be on how to believe just this because he is JUST THAT GOD. First of all, what does he really mean by believing him, and does it mean that we don’t believe?

Every honest Christian that wouldn’t want to be wrecked with by these false Prophets should come all out to understand what it takes to believe in God.

The first thing that we need to consider is to acknowledge that there is a God. The Lord said that whosoever comes to him must believe that he is. This is quite an ambiguous statement and may not be easily done as said. Meaning that we must know that the Lord is constantly behind his every word written or said.

In Numbers 23:19, the Bible quoted that God is not a man of lies, neither the son of man and that he should repent; Hath he said he should not do it or had he spoken and shall he not make it good?

Hath he said he should not do it or had he spoken and shall he not make it good?

To make it good is to go ahead and perform his word.

He used the word for the son of man to connote limitations. The son of man may have real willed to accomplish his will but unfortunately his just MAN. Now to repent means to go back on his word because we as man fall short of the accomplishment and last word. Meaning that if he said it, he will do everything to HAVE IT DONE.

THIS IS WHAT MAKES HIM GOD! MY GOD! YOUR GOD! OUR GOD!

He passed a comment that says, “he that believeth shall not make haste. Therefore, don’t be quick to conclude that he is not a God of his word and will not do it.

No matter the specific time we appoint ourselves, does not determines God’s time!

May God give us the Grace to persevere as we wait and learn to believe in him while we stand on his word!

And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.
Luke 5:16 KJV

Are you contemplating on a place to pray? Have you or are you still searching for a place to talk to God?

I used to struggle with the thought of finding the perfect place with less or no disturbances. I thought that if I was somewhere too loud he wouldn’t hear me to speak or if I am too quiet he’d want me to speak up. But as I grew up in my late teens my pastor told me before I left for basic training around the summer of June 2007.

He will always hear a humble heart and his child no matter what or where you are. Take heed to Luke 5:16 and study it. You will begin to understand why. Jesus often withdrew to lonely places to pray my dear!

From that day forward I started to put my best foot forward in studying his word. No I didn’t understand, so I had to do a little bit more researching and asking others of their opinions that they had grasped from the word. I wanted to know what it meant to them. I wanted understanding on what my pastor was trying to tell me.

But at the end of the day, I came to realize after calling my mom from basic training just to tell her, “I got it”. I had finally understood what he was trying to tell me, but I had to go off on my own to actually understand why. When she asked me “what is it”.

I told her the verse of Luke 5:16, and that all Pastor was trying to tell me was:

“If Jesus often withdrew himself to quiet places to pray, then God is all around us. He can hear our pleas and our praises wherever we happen to be. But even though he hears US any and everywhere he stills wants his time with us to himself. Never stop seeking a solitary place for solitude because he still loves his intimacy with his children.

She was a shocked and told me that she would let the pastor know at the next service. It only took me about 4weeks in between basic training to get it. Lol. Since then I have loved my time alone with him to hear, to speak, to grow in him, and flourish my relationship with him.

I am an emotional worshipper, that withholds nothing from him. I let down my flaws, dislikes, and imperfections at his feet for him to correct on a daily without any regret to be a better me. But I wasn’t always that way, I had to learn, with a heart and mind “willing” to learn and grow.

Since my knowledge and growth of that understanding, I’ve been going off on my own away from my kids, my former spouse, friends, or even family members just to have that quiet time with him. To be heard and to also hear!

You may even see me talking to myself, but I’m really just praying. I have no shame of where I am at or go to get that moment with him. I prefer silence to hear him rather than noise, distraction, or over anyone else. My quiet moments with God helps me regain my sense of peace while seeking his peace. And we all know his is better than ours.

To hear his words of guidance and signs shine through my darkness, he will receive my undivided attention!

Nothing or no one will ever change that!

Where is your most intimate place to pray with God?

Prayer:

Lord, help me to always place our time alone above all else to seek you in quietness and not in the midst of chaotic storms. You deserve my full attention for all that you do, have done, and yet to do or doing in my life. Thank you! In Jesus name, you have my undivided attention, AMEN!

In this episode Ms. Chrissie shares her raw truths on standing alone while depending solely on God while following through with his word. She shares how handling life tasks before you that may mean to stand alone before you see change happens, becomes a task not only for one to do but others as well to come together in unity. If standing alone means you will be wrong, then stand in right will mean to stand in unity!!
