Lets look at some scriptures. Remember to check me out. This verse is very clear; my sheep are believers and Jesus is saying I know them and they follow me. Well, because we have the Holy Spirit within us we have the truth, the word, the living God and the power of his resurrection to help and guide us each and every day of our lives.
John 10:27 (KJV) 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me
We have studied Salvation, Grace, Obedience, Forgiveness and Works; along with why we should study the word (Bible). Why this week do we study hearing; it is the relationship we have with God though Jesus in Prayer. Prayer is just talking with God about our everyday lives; our family, our Job, our health and every thing we can think of that affects our lives. Look at this verse, remember that we didn’t bring anything into the world and we will take nothing out of it. We need to always be content with what we have at any time.
1 Timothy 6:6-8 (KJV) 6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
This verse brings something very important to mind; the ravens are taken care of, God feeds them and how much more will he take care of us. This is part of relationship that we have with Him; that is trusting Him with everything that we have and need.
Luke 12:24-26 (KJV) 24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? 25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?
This next verse sums up everything in our study; be careful for nothing. Sometimes we have so much worry about everyday life. Here is where prayer comes in; if you pray then you believe he exists. If we make our request known to God we then receive thepeace of God. It all started when we accepted God as our Saviour, knowing that He died, was buried and the rose from the grave by the power of God.
Philippians 4:6-7 (KJV) 6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
What is life all about; yes it’s family, yes it getting married, but it is knowing that there is a God and that He loves us and that he will take care of us.
Don’t forget to thank Him for what you have. Today it may not be enough but tomorrow we trust God will supply all our needs.
Remember that this verse is a must to believe:
Hebrews 11: 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
You must believe that God exists in order to trust God today and to leave the worrying to Him, He can handle it we can’t!
Have a great day in Jesus.
