LFM – Nov 15
- Pastor David talked on a teachable spirit
- I talked on the names of God as I AM or Jehovah / Yahweh
- The name reveals all that God can be to us
- I AM means that God can be to us what we require Him to be according to our need.
- He can be our Jehovah Jireh – our Provider, Jehovah Rapha – our Healer, Jehovah Shalom – our Peace
- We should not underestimate the power that are in the names of God
- Romans 10:13 – Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved
- Psalm 91:14 – we are set on high because we know His name
- Example of Pastor David – he is called by many different names depending on the situation / person: Pastor, Daddy, Husband, Prophet, Mr.
- There is an expectation and a way he will respond when called by a certain name.
- When we receive Christ, we should not defile ourselves with sin – spiritual defilement.
- Time spent in God’s presence should always transform us. We should have a teachable spirit and not a hard heart for that transformation to manifest
- Like Able, we should leave a legacy that glorifies God by the way we lived our lives
- Understanding God requires that we spend time with God, learning His ways especially how He speaks to us.
- The more we spend time with God, the more we carry Him and His light in us. That Glory Light will transform our households and others we interact with. All that is associated with with us is now set apart for holiness.
- We should learn to focus on the promise of God and not the problem of the enemy.
- What we focus on is what is magnified in our lives
- God works with those who carry His Word and not the word of the enemy (negative) and guides them into the promised land.
- When God is for us, we take possession of Gods promises in our lives no matter the obstacles / mountains / giants
- That presence of the Word of God in us requires good soil so that the seed can be nurtured, watered and feed until it grows and produces fruit – Parable of the sower
Last Sunday — The bitter waters of Marah
- Jesus is the solution to all our bitterness or uncomfortable situations that we may find ourselves in.
- He not only heals the physical, but also the defects of the heart – bitterness, pride, anger
- Exodus 15:24-25 (NKJV)
24 And the people complained against Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” 25 So he cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet.
- Galatians 3:13-14 (NKJV)
13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”[h]), 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
1 Peter 2:24 (NKJV)
24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed
