Psalm 34:10, Rom 4:16, Matt 6:33, Jer 29:11-14, Matt 15:8-9, Prov 3:5-10
God has set up our blessings based on our faith so we can get his Grace and He can bless us exceedingly more! Seeking God pays great dividends. Jesus said if we seek, we shall find and if we ask, we shall receive.
Psalm 34:10 They that seek the Lord shall not be in want of any good things. God gave us his Word so we can find out the will and mind of God. We need to find out how He likes things to be.
Matt 6:33 Jesus said if we put God first, all of our things will be taken care of. Godís favor is a shield that protects us against the darts of the enemy.
Jeremiah 29:11-14 God wants us to seek him and He will bless us when we find him. God has good plans for us once we seek him with all our heart.
Matthew 14:8 We must worship the Lord with our heart and not with just our lips. Jesus doesnít want lip service! He wants our heart, our time, our faith and our lifestyle to be about God. We can tell what and how people really think and want by how they spend their time and money.
Psalm 3:5-9 Fear the Lord, honor the Lord, donít be conceited and depart from evil. We should trust God, believe God and not go by what we understand. Trust God on his instructions on how to live, talk, think and depart from evil. How we talk, what comes out of our mouth like doubt, unbelief and worrying is evil! Prayer will not work if we donít cast ALL our cares on the Lord!
Vs. 7 Be not wise in our own eyes. Go to the Word and go to God for instruction. Donít listen to other folk, listen to God.
Vs. 8 Depart from evil , seek the Lord and we will be healthy in our physical body. It will be health to our navel and marrow to our bones.
This health is Divine Health where we wonít have to have operations and take medications! When we fear the Lord and depart from evil we have Divine Health!
Prov 3:9-10 We can have Divine Prosperity by honoring the Lord with our substances and our first fruits. Vs. 10 Our barns will be filled with plenty!
