How THE BIBLE BECOMES YOUR ANSWER BOOK!
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
1st - Find the promise that fits your need.
The Bible is just the right size.
It is as big as LIFE: "The Book of Life." It answers to every situation.
The promises are awesome:
Let's say that there is a promise for that job that you need:
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33)
- i.e. Look to His Word in the Bible and Pray with True Faith and Blessings will come to you!
There are many promises for the guidance you are seeking:
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (Romans 8:14).
Another is Philippians 4:6,7. Consult the Lord, not horoscopes!
He will answer your "request" with "peace"-His inner green light, His go-ahead.
Do you lack joy?
For more "faith" read Hebrews.
Are you suffering? Look up 1 and 2 Peter.
Are you tempted?
Dig into Matthew 4 and Luke 4.
Need encouragement? 2 Corinthians is loaded with help.
James 5, and many other Scriptures, like 3 John 2. Find also the many Scriptures that spur you on to pray for, and help the poor, the needy, the fatherless, the widows: like James 1:27, Psalm 41:1, Matthew 25:35.
Are you praying for revival and renewal?
See 2 Corinthians 7:14, Habakkuk 3:2, Acts 2:17. Revelation 1-3.
How about "prayer meetings?"
Are you clear on the Scriptures here-the Bible basis for the congregational prayer meeting?
THE WHOLE BOOK OF ACTS, THE "BOOK OF THE CHURCH."
ON AND ON LIKE THIS, until we learn to do "everything by prayer and supplications with thanksgiving" and learn to "live by every Word of God". Philippians 4:6,7; Luke 4:4).
Someone has said that we should never pray without reading the Bible, and we should never read the Bible without praying.
It all adds up to this: we must learn to make the bible our prayer book!
We hope you enjoyed this inspiring article!
Now that the author has your attention, do you find yourself wondering what promises are in the Bible for you to "plead"?
Listed below are a few examples of some of the Bible promises that God has made to His children.
As you read these verses, think about each verse as if it were written directly to you. When you pray, acknowledge to God that His word is true, and that this truth is a promise that you "claim" as His child. You will be amazed at the joy and comfort you will have when you agree with God and His word concerning you!
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.
Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
DO you get it yet/ Amen!
Our God is GOOD and Merciful...
