For all the land that you see, I will give to you. . . Gen 13:15
The Bible Is God-Breathed
2Timothy 3:16, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
The Bible is important. It is the word of God. All scripture is given by inspiration of God (2 timothy 3:16). The Greek word is “theopneustos” means “God breathed.” The Bible is the heart of Christian faith. If you tear out that heart, as a Christian, your belief system is dead. As a believer the golden standard of your faith is the Bible. You find truth in its pages and the truth does not change or diminish over time. If your faith is what the Bible says, then you will have the God-breathed faith for your salvation. First Peter 1:23-25 says, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.” God’s Word endures forever and so will you endure forever with Him.
Abide With God
John 15:7, “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”
God doesn’t want you to visit with Him. He wants you to abide IN Him. Many people visit God once a week (on Sundays) or mid-week services (Wednesdays). They are happy to be in His presence for a couple of hours. They enjoy the singing and teaching of His word. But they do not abide with Him when they leave the church building. You may visit a friend, but you do not live with them. God doesn’t want you to visit Him. God wants you to be in His presence all of the time. He wants you to dwell with Him. He wants you to abide IN Him. John 15:5 says, "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing." And John 17:22-23 says, "And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me." To be made perfect means complete. When you abide in God, you are complete.
Use Your Key
Isaiah 22:22, “And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.”
God wants you to use the key He’s given unto you. The key is to open doors of blessing and lock doors to guard blessings. The mandate given you in Isaiah 22 is to use the key of the house of David to open doors which no man can shut and shut doors which no man can open. You know it’s important to use the key to access God’s blessing, but sometime fail to think about protecting the blessing. The key to protecting your blessing is faith, prayer and abiding in the secret place of God. Guard your blessing and lock them with the key given by God. Forbid the devil from coming into your storehouse to steal from you through prayer and decrees. Malachi 3:10-11 say, “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.” God expects you to use the key He has given to you to protect your blessings.
Your Strength Is In God
Psalm 84:5-7, “Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them. Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools. They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.”
God is opening a highway of His power and presence to bring you out of the Valley of Trouble and Tears. New levels of healing power are starting to manifest. Your strength is being renewed in the midst of trouble. God is sending answers to your prayers from the past. He is releasing additional angelic resources to quickly bring answers to your prayer request right now. In 2021, you will start seeing a fast turnaround in answered prayers. This is a time to step into peace that surpasses all understanding. God wants you to step up and out of the time of trouble. You may have to battle to get this, because the devil is trying to remove peace and replace it with fear. Therefore, you must break the spirit of fear and replace it with the peace of God.
