Joy In Us

Joy In Us
Author:Pat Aman

When we abide in Christ, our prayers are effective, we glorify 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.

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

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

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. 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 good. 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 have to take a chance. Dare to try a new idea. Pat Aman)

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.

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 become 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, Prayer, and study to show yourself a workman, then you can asked what you will, and it shall be.

Blessings, Love and Prayers,
Pastor Pat
