Currents of favor begin to flow the moment you solve a problem for people in need. We have favor as we look after others! Under promise and over deliver. I’m a problem solver. Look to help others instead of only looking after ourselves.
The seed that leaves your hand, never leaves your life but enters your life to multiply. God sends you to fulfill things. YOU can be the answer to someone else’s prayer - then God will answer yours through being obedient. God wants us to be givers.
Each act of obedience shortens the distance to any miracle you are pursuing. Walk in the blessings. It should be continuous as you are obedient to the Father. Obedience brings prosperity to our life.
The quality of your preparations will determines the quality of your performance. So how well do you prepare.
Proverbs 11:1 - “Dishonest scales are an abomination to the LORD, But a just weight is His delight.”
“The (uncompromisingly) righteous is delivered from trouble, And it comes to the wicked instead.” Proverbs 11:8 NKJV
Proverbs 11:3 “The integrity of the upright will guide them, But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them.” Proverbs 11:3 NKJV
Being honest will keep you on tract. Being dishonest will take you in the wrong direction. It will destroy you! Be loyal to what the Word of God has to say to us.
Be people of honesty, integrity, single in heart - mindset of the Word. Singleness of purpose. You have to have self discipline. Follow instructions. Self discipline is doing without being told.
We have to have understanding of what integrity is about. It’s God’s plan for my life to live life to the fullest!
Nothing missing, nothing broken but I’m becoming whole in every aspect of my life. Integrity - firm adherence to a code of a special mode of value.
Uncompromisingly righteous is going to hold on to the Word of God and not let go of it. Unpaired position - soundness of mind. Integrity is wholeness and compares to be in sink on the inside and the outside.
It’s founded in no place between belief and action. Be what you appear to be and have no hidden agenda. If you say something, you will do it.
Opinions of fact or truth. The doctor says you have cancer; the Word says ‘by His stripes you are healed.’
Noah said it’s going to rain. “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations.
Noah walked with God. And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.” Genesis 6:8-10 NKJV
God will share things with you if you don’t compromise on His Word. Noah was a man of integrity. What would your friend so about you?
Noah was different and gave an escape plan to mankind.
God liked the integrity of Noah’s heart. It didn’t stop Noah from acting on what God told him. He walked with God. Today we don’t think we need God.
“When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him,
“I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless.
And I will make My covenant between Me and you,
and will multiply you exceedingly.”
Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying:
“As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and
you shall be a father of many nations.” Genesis 17:1-4 NKJV
“So the boys grew. And Esau was a skillful hunter, a man of the field; but Jacob was a mild man, dwelling in tents. And Isaac loved Esau because he ate of his game, but Rebekah loved Jacob.” Genesis 25:27-28 NKJV
Walk before God and be blameless.
“Now if you walk before Me as your father David walked, in integrity of heart and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded you, and if you keep My statutes and My judgments, then I will establish the throne of your kingdom over Israel forever, as I promised David your father, saying, ‘You shall not fail to have a man on the throne of Israel.’
But if you or your sons at all turn from following Me, and
do not keep My commandments and My statutes
which I have set before you, but
go and serve other gods and worship them, then
I will cut off Israel from the land which I have given them;
and this house which I have consecrated for My name
I will cast out of My sight.
Israel will be a proverb and a byword among all peoples.”
I Kings 9:4-7 NKJV
Always stand on the Word of God and HE will come to your rescue.
If you have integrity, it’s going to cost you something. It’s going to cost you something to love.
Unrighteousness will continue to bring you down. Righteousness will keep you in integrity and receive the blessings of God in your life. Turn from your wicked ways and ask God to forgive you like David did. God can turn things around for you.
“There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil.”
Job 1:1 NKJV
Beginning of Integrity - Fear God and shun evil.
“Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?” Job 1:8 NKJV
“Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity?
Curse God and die!”
But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks.
Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?”
In all this Job did not sin with his lips.”
Job 2:9-10 NKJV
God was speaking to the devil about Job.
““ If one attempts a word with you, will you become weary?
But who can withhold himself from speaking?
Surely you have instructed many,
And you have strengthened weak hands.
Your words have upheld him who was stumbling,
And you have strengthened the feeble knees;
But now it comes upon you, and
you are weary;
It touches you, and you are troubled.
Is not your reverence your confidence?
And the integrity of your ways your hope?” Job 4:2-6 NKJV
Your devoted life will bring you confidence and hope in God’s promises.
“Let me be weighed on honest scales, That God may know my integrity.”
Job 31:6 NKJV
Go the distance; be obedient to God’s Word. See how much He loves you and wants the best for you. Job begin to worship; he never sinned against God. He maintained integrity throughout his whole ordeal.
Job worshipped! We are going to have to worship. Humility is key for you to see what is happening.
Teachability - be teachable or are we going to change our perspective? Victory - stay focuses and receive victory. Purity of heart will
The devil doesn’t play softball - he plays hardball
Your seed is a photograph of your faith. Call up what the Word says. I receive my running over abundance. Don’t doubt the Word of God. It’s about your faith in Him.
What you repeatedly hear, you will eventually believe. South Carolina is our wealthy place.
God never consults your past to determine your future. If any man is in Christ, he is a NEW creation.
Satan always attacks those next in line for promotion. God is doing something nobody expects.
Luke 4:18 - ““The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.” Luke 4:18-19 NKJV
If you want to be blessed, learn about how to Honor. Don’t be ashamed of the gospel. Honor should be a lifestyle. Who are the poor in spirit, those who are financially broke, broken family relationships, sick, etc. People who don’t tap into the attention to overlook the opportunity that God has for us.
II Corinthians 8:9 - “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.” II Corinthians 8:9 NKJV
Recognize what God has to say to us. See how God wants us to receive things. Rebellion, correct it in our lives so we can be blessed.
“There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.” Jesus answered and said to him,
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:1-3 NKJV
“Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”
Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.””
John 3:4-8 NKJV
When God speaks to the wind, it has to obey.
“Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?
Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness. If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven.
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
John 3:10-17 NKJV
Trust and rely on God. Believe in, trust in, clings to and relies on will live forever. He gave His only son for us. Enter through His grace.
““He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” John 3:18-21 NKJV
“The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand. He who believes in the Son has everlasting life;
and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” John 3:35-36 NKJV
It is beneficial for us to believe in Him. It takes faith to believe these things and walk in these things. Salvation is all encompassing word of redemption.
5 basic aspects of salivation: Deliverance; salvation is in the Name of Jesus. Healing; I have healing in my salvation package. Generational curses will continue to hang over you if you don’t get saved.
Safety - Trust the loving safety of the Almighty God. We are covered in the blood. Perseverance - don’t quit! Stand on the Word of the living God. Exercise faith in the promises of God.
