Are Your Prayers Effective?

Are Your Prayers Effective?
Author: Pat Aman

When we abide in Christ, our prayers are effective, we glorify our Father God in our fruit bearing we demonstrate our discipleship, and our joy become full through experiencing Christ’s own joy with us.

Also, when we obey the Lord and align our will with His will we receive understanding of His Word, and many other areas of our lives.

I know, some of you are saying, “Oh, that name it and claim if stuff.” Well, in away yes. When you spend time with Father God daily, and read His Word, then your will, shall become His will for your life.

But notice, that little but big word, “if.”

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.”
‭‭John‬ ‭15:7‬ ‭

In other words, plainly written, the more you know of your Father God, the more you will know of yourself. For we are made in His image and His ways.

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Genesis‬ ‭1:27‬ ‭

As you commit more to God and His Word, then you will soon find out that you are only asking Him in prayer what you know that He has promised you that He would do for you, by and from your obedience to Him.

Learn to do it God’s way.

Let’s look at Moses.

Moses was told the first time to strike the stone with the rod and water would flow. He did what was asked of him, and God gave them water.

The second time around, Moses did not listen too well. God told Moses to speak to the rock and water shall come out, but instead he decided to strike the stone twice with the rod to get water instead of following God’s direction.

Well, we know what happen then, the people disobedience caused them not to be able to enter the Promise Land.

You cannot always do something the same way all the time. Sometimes you must take a chance. Dare to try a new idea.

We must learn to listen to God and do what He requires for us to do. If Moses had just spoke to the rock as God said, everything would have been okay, but instead he wore himself out by hitting the rock twice and doing it his way. Speaking would have taken less time and energy than picking up the rod and hitting the rock. That took a little muscle on Moses own part. It would have been much easier if he had just obeyed God in the beginning. So, his disobedience lost him the goal, plans, and ministry God had for him to do in the Promise Land.

Now the question, are you ready to listen to God and enter the Promise Land, or do your own thing the hard way?

If you decide to do it your own way you may succeed just as Moses did after hitting the rock twice and doing it his own way, but he lost his Promised Vision, and he became tired and weary.

How about asking God what He wants for your life. I promise you that it will be better than any plans that you have come up with on your own.

Get in God’s Word, Pray, and study to show yourself a workman, then you can ask what you will, and it shall be.

“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
‭‭II Timothy‬ ‭2:15

Do not let your own stubbornness keep you from receiving Father God’s blessing from Him.

Proverbs 29:1 He who is often reproved, yet stiffens his neck, will suddenly be broken beyond healing.

Romans 2:5 But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.

Psalm 81:11-12 “But my people did not listen to my voice; Israel would not submit to me. So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts, to follow their own counsels.

Philippians 2:3 Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.

John 5:30 “I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me.

Father God wants the best for Hus children….

Being Job was a job!

Being Job was a job!
Author: Pat Aman

Job 1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

Job 42 1:13 Then Job answered the Lord, and said,2 I know that thou canst do everything, and that no thought can be withholding from thee.3 Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.4 Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.5 I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.6 Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.7 And it was so, that after the Lord had spoken these words unto Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.8 Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job.9 So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as the Lord commanded them: the Lord also accepted Job.10 And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before11 Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the Lord had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and everyone an earring of gold.12 So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.13 He had also seven sons and three daughters.14 And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch.15 And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.16 After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons, even four generations.17 So Job died, being old and full of days.

Trying to have the patience of Job is a job for sure. But, as they say, and you’ve heard a thousand times, “There is always a test before the testimony.”

In reading Job, I saw that God trusted Job enough to know that his servant would never fall away from Him.

We all have read, that Job was deeply approved and blessed by God. God’s assessment of Job is, “That there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that fears God, and eschews evil” (Job 1:8).

From it, we can see that Job has borne a resounding testimony for God, and brought comfort to God’s heart.

When satan asked God to let him test the trueness of Job, God allowed him to test Job. But, God said you cannot take his life. But stretch out your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse you to your face. The LORD said to Satan, Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life (Job 2:5-6).

As we all know the story, Job lost everything he had, all but a big mouth wife and three good for nothing friends.

And in the end if Job had not prayed for his friends, blessing his friends, God would have taken wrath against them. But Job still have compassion on them and pleaded to God for them.

God told Job’s friends, “8 Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job.”

Job’s friends talk bad against Job and against God. But, Job was a Godly man and did not want harm to come to his friends.
Job said, “But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold,” JOB 23:10.

Job was saying, My faith will be tried.


Will I obey under extreme circumstances?

Will I show love to my brethren even though they do not show love to me?

The Lord allows that trial to try our faith, so we have proof of the obedience of faith.

I will tell you now, sometimes my faith is not where is should be, but that does not stop me from seeking Father God, for I know He is the finisher of my faith.

Even when Job curse the day he was born, his so call friends still said, “just looked at the appearance of things, but they did not know how many sincere feelings that Job had toward Father God.

Job truly experienced Father God’s love for him during his trials. The reason why he said like this “Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived,” was that he neither wanted God to be pained by him nor did he want to see God worry about him. Job deeply felt that God is always right by his side and has been accompanying him from the very beginning to the end.

When he was harmed by Satan, Father God’s heart ached very much; when he was tortured and suffered pains, God’s heart was also pained.

As Job’s friends questioned why Father God did not heal Job, they did not realize that Father God knew the outcome of this test.

And Job’s friends like us asked Father God why are some healed and others are not?

We will never know that answer until we get to Heaven.

“Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭13:8, 10-13‬

We must keep our hearts and eyes on Father God. We must just must be faithful to what God has called us to do. And yes, I know God heals and will continue to do miracles in our lives.

God sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross for us. He died so we might live.

We like Job must be obedient.

I know know Father God is in control of our lives. That is why we have the book of Job, to show us that there are reasons for and purposes in these trials and sufferings that we do not see.

Job could not see what was going on behind the scenes, and neither can we. And yet God knows. He has a purpose, and it is a proper and right purpose that will end up manifesting more fully the love and compassion of His heart. The test of every trial is always to this end.

And God will never leave or forsake you. He would not have allowed this path you are walking if He did not know you were strong enough to handle it. In other words, He is kicking the old devil in the face and showing him that you are steadfast.

This should show you how important you are to Father God.

So, now I asked you this very important question?

Are you doing the job of Job?
It may be hard, but the pay and benefits in the end will be worth it all. Just stand still and know God is God.

And I will at another time list some Biblical reasons why at times some receive an earthly healing and some a heavenly healing. But, please know, I do not have all the answers and know one does. For now we see dimly, but one day we will see it clearly.

God bless each of you.

Spiritual Blindness

“Spiritual Blindness”
Author: Pastor Pat AH Aman

Spiritual Blindness, oh my gracious, these are Powerful Words.

But, as I look around I either see people walking around in a fog of spiritual blindness, are as they speak their words show just how spiritual blinded they have become in their lives.

As I pondered this question of spiritual blindness, it made me think, am I where I should be in my walk with God? Am I blind to the world around me and the service God has called me into?

I decided without hesitation that I do not know about you, but, I am on assignment for Father God and I am realizing I do not have time for junk are to play games. I do not beat around the bush. If someone needs Jesus, I will share the grace and mercy of His gift of Salvation with them.

I can share with them that they do not have to stay in a state of spiritual blindness.

I can share through my testimony what it is like to walk with dark shades over my eyes. Yes, if my own experience with my own spiritual blindness can help a soul not spend eternity in hell, so be it.

“Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” When He had said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay. And He said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing. And Jesus said to him, “You have both seen Him and it is He who is talking with you.” Then he said, “Lord, I believe!” And he worshiped Him.”
‭‭John‬ ‭9:1-7, 37-38‬

This is a story of blindness. A man had been born blind, forced to spend his entire life begging his livelihood. Then one day Jesus pick up some dirt, spit in it and put the dirt (clay)on his eyes, sent him to wash, and he saw!

I wonder why nobody at all, praised God?

Was it because they were too preoccupied with their own concerns to recognize Father God at work among them?

The disciples were wrapped up in a theological question: Why was this man born blind?

The Pharisees were worried by a legal question: What authority had Jesus to heal, especially on the Sabbath?

The man’s parents were anxious about a personal issue: How can we avoid being ostracized by the synagogue? Even the man himself was initially concerned only with what had happen to him.

This is a story of blindness, all right. Everybody in it is blind, to Jesus. Yet there He is, restoring sight!

I am blind sometimes too, so preoccupied with other issues that I fail to see the work of God around me.

One person in this story give me hope. The man who was once blind finally sees who Jesus really is an immediately he worships Him.

If I focus my own eyes on who Jesus is, will I be able to see what God is doing in the world and in my life, and praise Him for it.

Father God, as I turn my eyes to You, heal my blindness that I may praise You for all You good works. In Jesus Name I Pray Amen and Amen and so be it!!!!

Whose Knocking

Whose Knocking?
Author: Pat Aman

John 15:7 “If you abide in Me and My Word abides in you, you may asked what you will and it shall be.”

This week I told someone, hey, “when satan knocks at your door, ask Jesus to answer the door for you.”

But, if I put the quote the way I really would say it, well, “Be the type of lady or man, that when you arise in the morning, the devil says, OH CRAP! SHE’S UP! or HE’S UP!” (smile please)

I know you have hear part of this statement before: “If you do not embarrass sin, sin will embarrass you.

Sin will take you farther than you want to go.
Keep you there longer than you want, and cost you more than you will realize.

We as Christians should not ever be afraid of satan, but he should be afraid of us.

If we are reading God’s Word, Witnessing and Praying daily, satan does not have a leg to stand on in our lives.

Jesus defeated satan in the wilderness by saying, “satan it is written.”

“Then Jesus was led by the [Holy] Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After He had gone without food for forty days and forty nights, He became hungry. And the tempter came and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” But Jesus replied, “It is written and forever remains written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.’ ” Then the devil took Him into the holy city [Jerusalem] and placed Him on the pinnacle (highest point) of the temple. And he said [mockingly] to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written, ‘He will command His angels concerning You [to serve, care for, protect and watch over You]’; and ‘They will lift you up on their hands, So that You will not strike Your foot against a stone.’ ” Jesus said to him, “On the other hand, it is written and forever remains written, ‘You shall not test the Lord your God.’ ” Again, the devil took Him up on a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory [splendor, magnificence, and excellence] of them; and he said to Him, “All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go away, Satan! For it is written and forever remains written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.’ ” Then the devil left Him; and angels came and ministered to Him [bringing Him food and serving Him].”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭4:1-11‬ ‭

We should also be able to say, “satan it is written,” and quote the Word of God over anything that satan tries to throw at us.

We give satan to much credit. We give him to much rope in our lives and he hangs on.

It is time we cut that rope using Father God’s Word. His Holy Scriptures.

It is time to remember that any and everything that has a name has to bow down in the Name and by the Name of Jesus.

It is time for a change. It is time for satan to fear us waking up each morning, because he knows we are going to read God’s Word, Pray and Witness for Christ, which he does not want us to do.

It is time to scare the tarnation out of satan so much that he says, “OH Crap, they’re up!

Hey folks it’s time to get real. It is time to stand on our own two feet, and let satan and the world know we are children of God. The world is sick and tired of Holy then Thou Christians, who are acting like the world. Let the world know we are just sinners saved by the mercy and grace of God.

Remember don’t be so religious acting that you scare people away for God.
