Preparation for success in 2011

What many fail to realize is success comes with a price, and a heavy price at that. Whatever area or expertise you are pursuing will cost you plenty if you want to be succeeding at a higher level. Especially if you are doing something good that will help and improve other people lives.

If you think that the enemy will just give you free course to exceed and promote good without any interference, you are in for a heart breaker. This is why he is called the enemy, because he will throw everything, even the kitchen sink at you, so you could give up.

Okay, you want to be successful, do you know what success it?

The achievement of something planned or attempted like fame, wealth, or power. This may not be your intention, but when you are successful, these attachments come with the package.

When you are pursuing success, the strangest things seems to always come up, money problems, not enough time, my family and friends don’t agree with me, it’s to much work, I going to quit, maybe I was wr…

Mediate on the WORD day and night.

What is Meditation:

This means to think carefully about something. If you look around, you will certainly be exposed to many ways to meditate; however, the main objective is to create mental discipline in whatever you do. All you need is a small space for you to sit comfortably, preferably in a quiet location. Close your eyes and “observe” your thoughts. Whatever thoughts enter your mind, simply let them go.

Although you may find many ways of meditating, the best way to meditate is through prayer. Prayer is a good example of spiritual meditation, though it does not have to be religious and is certainly not specific to any kind of religion. Anybody with a relationship with the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit can practice this by asking spiritual guidance, wherein God ‘speaks’ and you ‘listen’. In this type of meditation, we can start by asking a particular question, and we clear our minds so that we can ‘listen’ to the answer. This is referred to as two-way communication between you an…

LIFE IS COMMITING TO SOMTHING

So many people run away from the word commitment. I often wonder what makes this word seem so dangerous to some people. If they only knew how important and valuable this word is when you commit to the right thing or person, more and more people would choose to make a commitment.

In the words of Marcus Tullius Cicero (c. 106 ~ 43 BC) “What one has, one ought to use: and whatever he does, he should do it with all his might.” So the question is: Are you using your gifts and talents, and all of your God-given resources with all of your might? It is going to take this and more to withstand true commitment.

Let’s look at this.

Building life is just like structuring a building. You want to build it so it can stand from generation to generation, functioning and operating as normal. You want to build it so that when the wind and the rain come, it will never move from its position. For far too long, we have been given a picture of quick and fast, in and out, with no expectation of a solid futu…

WORKING OF THE MIND

According to science, the mind records data using mental image pictures. Such pictures are actually three-dimensional and contain color, sound, and smell, as well as other perceptions. They also include the conclusions or speculations of the individual. Mental image pictures are continuously made by the mind—moment by moment. This is a prime example that, even in the realm of science, the mind is the central part of the body and contains the information needed for life. This is why is so important to regulate and control your mind.

For example, Jesus Christ is symbolically the mind, or leader, of the church. Those who follow him are the body. Therefore, Christians’ entire lives should exemplify him and take direction from him, because the mind is what leads the body. Wherever the mind goes, the body has no choice but to follow. You want to first program your mind before you make an attempt to do anything. If you have to pray, then pray. If you have to repeat yourself until it programs…

COMMITMENT

Commitment, so many are running scared when they here this word. I often wonder what make this word seems so dangerous to some people. If they only know how important and valuable this word is when you commit to the right thing or person, I believe that more and more would make a commitment.

Listen to the words from Marcus Tullius Cicero (c. 106 ~ 43 BC) “What one has, one ought to use: and whatever he does he should do it with all his might.” So the question is, are you using what you have, your gifts and talents and all you resources, and using them with all your might? Because it going to this and more to a seal stamp of approval when it comes to commitment.

Let’s look at this.

What love have to do with it

As I went to my Pastor appreciation on the first of a four days event, celebrating and honoring someone for the things they do to help others is a good thing. There was singing, dancing, worshiping and praising to God for the honoree, a great woman in the name of Pastor Angela Giles.

It was time for the main part of the event, the word of God. The word coming from Pastor Kevin Williams said, would you still love me the same way when I get on your last nerve by telling you the truth? When we have a disagreement, would you still love me? When I tell you right from wrong would you still love me? In other words, would you love me tomorrow the same way you love me today after I have corrected you.

Corrections come to help and build up, and not to separated and move backwards. Embrace correction and accept the right words when it comes to help you. Criticism could be a blessing if you accept it for what it is and use it as a stepping stone to build on.

Above all, love each other deeply, be…

WHAT'S ON THE MENU

Have you ever found yourself saying, “If I could only find a solution to deal with these symptoms from the infirmity in my body, I would have a better chance of fulfilling my heart’s desire”?

Have you ever felt that a situation was so deep and hard to get past that it seemed as if your life had stopped right that very moment? Ever felt like all inspiration and hope was lost?

In such a time as this, where the mind, body, and soul are affected by the countless attacks by the fiery dots from the enemy, only one such program could dissolve and cancel the enemy’s plans—The Menu. http://amzn.to/cZLEO0

Why attempt to perform an impossible task with mere shallow power, and yield little or no results. The time has come to tap into the power source that cannot fail.

Most people deal with their problems by relying on other sources for help and support. While other people may be critical and necessary to make it through certain situations, when it comes to your healing, the main thing is for you…

HAVING A GOOD NAME

The line that separates eternally from carnality is called having a good name, or better yet, a good reputation. I started to wonder what would be spoken about me if I let this situation diminish my life. Was I worthy of having my name mentioning forever and ever? Did I want my name to be spoken with a good and positive attitude, even after the Lord called me home? If not, then I was not going to achieve success in my situation. But I certainly did not want anything negative to be said about me, especially when I had three boys to take care of. This was a vital point in taking control of my situation. A good name would transient my ability to achieve the unattainably.

Is your name worthy to be spoken around good company?

A question you must ask yourself.

FAITH OR FEAR

Faith and fear, what a combination, they are like oil and water, they will never agree on anything. Faith goes forward, but fear move backwards. While fear makes you timid, faith makes you believe. These two are like freedom and bondage, victory and disaster. They will always battle against each other. This brings us to good and evil, God and the devil. They will never roam in the same environment, because they have different views. While God deal with integrity and the quality of life, the devil focus is on lust and temptations.

The spirit and the flesh battling for control of the human body, which one win is up to you, which one is greater in your life, faith or fear? Some people say I have faith, but on the other hand they are afraid to attempt such a huge task. Choose FAITH.

BE THE BEST IN WHAT YOU DO

It was an early Sunday morning, just finish taking a shower and preparing for Sunday worship. As I began to get dress for Church, I realized that there are many things about my self that I’m not satisfied with, and yet still so many things that were threatening my soul.

I begin to reminisce and said, what would make someone envy me and want to be like me, could they travel the path and the road? Could they light keep shining in a dark hole? If they only knew how far I have come, they have no idea what lies ahead of me, and they surly don’t know how sometime I get dissatisfied with my self. So, I begin to ask myself, why someone would want to wear my garment.

People don’t know the troubles that you’ve had, and the price you had to pay to get where you are. They don’t comprehend the scripture that said, “much is given much is require” for to know a person is to tread their path. However, all they want to do is where your garment and look like you.

When you ware your garment for a while…

RENEW YOUR PRAYER LIFE

I send a message for prayer.

I called on you prayer, but you did not respond. Why not? I am in distress and need you very much. I would be grateful if you could come to my rescue. Prayer is your name isn't it; prayer is what you do, right. When I call for you, you suppose to come and fulfill my request. That's how it supposes to work. However, you are ignoring me, why? Prayer, do you really work.

Prayer responded

I am busy and cannot come at this moment. My time is precious and important, so what do you need from me anyway. Remember last year when you needed me for peace in your mind, did you get it? Yes. And when you needed me to help your son out from trouble in the streets and gangs, did I come true? Yes. How about when you ask me to provided food for your family, did I make your day? Yes. So why are you asking me if I really work. If I work last year, don't you think I would work this year also? However, I will tell you why you think that way about me now. If you want …

7 life lessons to use to turn your situation of being the victim to the victor.

Learning from the adversities that we face in life, and allowing God to birth His purposes in us, is proof that the victory is truly ours. As is the case in "LIFE is What You Make It: seven steps to moving forward" where new author, Carl Mathis spells out 7 life lessons that God taught him to use to turn his situation of being the victim to the victor.

Carl Mathis' life took an unsuspecting turn, when the death of his wife, leaving him to raise 2 sons on his own, left him devastated and looking for someone or something to rescue him. Grieving, stressed and in disbelief of his present situation, Carl Mathis had to come to grips with his new reality and through prayer, God gave him the will and steps to move forward.

Mr. Mathis does a fine job in detailing the steps that he used to get his life back on track; steps that the reader will be able to apply to their own life. The applications of these biblical truths are key and Mr. Mathis backs up his theories with a wealth of…

Moving forward

We sometimes choose to hang onto things in our life that are not helping us at all—the things that at some point have hurt us, angered us, made us feel sad, or depressed us.

Its funny how we so intending on not letting go of the bad memories and those discomforts in our past is be on my comprehension, what I can say is, holding on to misery is very bad for your health, and is hindering your forward movement.

When we choose to hang on to a bad situation, we never move forward, and we even create physical or medical damage to our bodies. To prevent this from happening, we need to let go.

We really don’t know the extent of the damage that could cause from trying to keep what not good for your well been, it could reach where it can cause serious health problem for you body. The body functions are very delicate and work according to the feeling that is generated from how the mind thinks.

Taking charge of your life

Sometimes we find our self saying things that we regret latter on in our life. In the heat of the moment is when most of the things are said out of anger and frustration, stepping back and taking some time to think about what you are going to say could make the different between you being able to accepting the situation.

What are you saying? Are your words good or bad, Positive or negative, happy or sad? The words from your mouth are they leading to failure or success. Do you ever wonder how you got into that mess? All these contribute to accepting the situation.

You are in charge of the words that you speak. Will you be strong, or will you be weak? Do you speak words of sickness, or words of health? Do you speak of poverty, or are your words of wealth? Speaking over your situation is a great way to dissolve any situation.

What you say each day is what comes to pass in your life.

(Life is not what it used to be)

Life is just not what it used to be. There was a time when little boys and girls would play street games like kick-the-can, stick-ball, and tag. Those days have come and gone. The quality of television programs seems to have diminished. If you are not saying something profane, sexual, or degrading to somebody, then you are not popular. It seems like the world took a three hundred and sixty-degree turn in a negative way. Nobody wants to work anymore. It’s all about a quick fix, microwaved products, and fast food. Where are we heading by racing down this superhighway? It’s all about sex and degrading the wonder of God’s creation of the female figure. Innocent boys and girls are being violated on a regular basis. And then we have to worry about the terrorists, whose intention is to destroy those who stand for good. There was a time when the family was the most important thing to a person after God. Now you find mothers fighting against their daughters, fathers fighting against their sons…

I WANT TO BE HAPPY:

Do you see yourself in this?

I WANT TO BE HAPPY:

I look around and I see so many smiling faces. I see couples walking down the boulevard hugging and kissing each other. Even at the ballpark people are cheering for their favorite team, while I walk around with a sad face. Well, enough is enough; from this day on I decided to make it my duty to have a smile on my face. God made me in his image, and I do not think God would appreciate me walking around with a sad face. I deserve to be happy, I want to be happy, and I am going to be happy from this day on, because I now know, with God, all things are possible.

CARL MATHIS
Cutler Bay resident Carl Mathis, a minister and elder at Holy Ghost Tabernacle Ministries in Goulds, brought out his first book in March of last year after overcoming a personal tragedy. That book was Life Is What You Make It: Build a Better Life for You and Your Family.

“When I lost my wife in December of 2005, my life took a dramatic turn for the worse,” Mathis said. “Trying to raise three boys while grieving was not an easy task, so in a sense, I could sympathize with someone who may need to know that if I could tread the path of difficulty and come out victorious, they could also.”
His new book, Life Is What You Make It: Seven Steps to Moving Forward, will be published on Aug. 17 by Tate Publishing. The 104-page paperback will be available through Amazon.com and other booksellers.

“As I look around I see so many people who have lost a loved one or somebody who is close to them, and they are having such a difficult time coping with the separation that …

BOOK REVIEW by Anita Finley

BOOK REVIEW: LIFE is What You Make It...
seven steps to moving forward

Author: Carl Mathis — Reviewed by Anita Finley

Carl Mathis writes about the dramatic change he experienced when suddenly his wife died. He said that he waited a long time hoping someone would come to his assistance but that didn’t really happen. And it was at that defining moment that he found out that life is what you make it, and that another cannot make your life for you. There is so much motivation on the pages of this small, but powerful book, that it requires re-reading to absorb the excellent messages. One of his chapters, “Accept the Situation” probably affects each and ever y one of us at some time of our life. Mathis continually reassures us that we have the ability to achieve anything we want or need. One should ask if hanging on to negative past events makes everyone feel better or worse?

We all know the answer, it’s just how to accomplish being positive and not letting t…

YOU HAVE THE THE POWER INSIDE YOU TO DO ANYTHING

"THE POWER LIES WITH IN YOU"

The greatest power you could ever acquire is the power to do what you want to, in the Bible its call free will. This incredible power lies inside of you. What happened is, God allows you to make any decision you want concerning you life. But you must understand that there will be consequence you will face. This consequence is control not by anyone else but you, not even God will intervene; He gives you the right away to do what you want to do. However, remember the result of your decision was you own doing, making the right decision keeps you from ever having to come to the conclusion of accepting the situation that you put yourself into.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE MOST

Lets simplify this, what you think about the most will eventually be the dominant force in your thinking capability, this will be the result of which direction you are going to take, or whether you will accept the situation and move forward with your life.

HOW TO LIVE A PEACEFUL LIFE

Living a peaceful life is what everybody wants out of life. Many people spend most of there time trying get a little peace in their mind. Worry free, stress free and able to do and go when and wherever you want to is not bad at all, but just the fact that your mind is clear of any turmoil and confusion could be called a peaceful life.

There is a way to obtain such a creator without spending half of your life trying to get it. In Romans 12:18 of the Amplified Bible, the author writes, If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

Finding peace comes from with in you, and how you react to the everyday situations that you cannot stop from happening. You cannot get away from life’s ups and downs, they will occur, but when they do occur, the defining moment to decide your peaceful life is at hand.

We all were created different with different ability and attitudes etc. So, we will have disagreements and conflicts with each other from time to time, handling the situ…

HOW TO LIVE A SPIRITUAL LIFE

Every human contains a triplex in its nature, the Body, the Soul and the Spirit. The body, or the outer part of a human, is what been used to demonstrate the actions of what’s going on inside of the body. In other words, the body is the part of the human that covers the real source of what life is all about.

In fact, everything in this world has a body. A vehicle has a body, a building has a body, writing or reading has a body, from music to even liquid has a body. So as we see it, not only humans but objects and things have a body also. But to live spiritually will take more than just the body because the body has no connection that links toward God.

Then there is the soul. Not everything has a soul. The soul is placed above, and is independent of all infirmities of the body. For example, a sick person showing signs of weakness is due to the hindrances that interpose themselves between his soul and his body.

Concerning the soul, after its separation from the body, it will continue to…

Is There Really a God Or is it All Baloney?

Is there really a God, or this whole talk about a higher power, or a supreme being all baloney? Imagine that you get on your knees and talk into the air. This is called praying to the person call God; however, you cannot see Him. The Bible itself says that no one has ever seen God at anytime. So what makes a person do such things for a God that they cannot see?

Some people say that they could feel His presence and even smell His aroma when He is around them. But still, I wonder if that sweet smelling Savior or the Ointment that runs down Aaron's beard is what they are talking about. I am curious to know, what does God smell like and how does His presence feel like. So the question is, is there really a God?

Many have confessed that God did this and God did that for them, and how He changed their life around, but yet they could not here Him speak a word. How could that be? Did He transform Himself into a human and perform helpful tasks for people, so how could they say God did it. …

HAVING A SOUND MIND

This may sound strange to some people, but your mind plays a very big part to the supernatural occurrence. Do you not know that if a person is completely healed, but their mind tells them that it’s not so, their psychical body will not perform accordingly, that is because every part of their body takes orders from their mind.

This works in any form of categorical subject, that whatever you convince your mind to believe will occur. This is why Christians were specifically commanded to change their thinking and realize that the way that they thinking is not of God but of the world.

Remember that we were born in sin and shape in iniquity. In other words, our minds would have been lost and have no way of focusing on anything that is correct or according to the word of God. But then Jesus came and provides the Spirit of a sound mind, which enables us to rely and stand firm on what God said through His word.

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a …

OUT OF CONTROL

Out of control is a dangerous road to travel, and it’s not a category that any individual should want to get themselves involved in. out of control is like a bad case of rash that you are trying to get rid of and cannot. Out of control gets into your mind and pushes you to do things that you eventually would be sorry for doing later on. This thing called out of control separates the stable-minded person from the influential by every situation or circumstance. If out of control is knocking at your door, please do not open it, because you might not like what will happen. Let him knock all he wants, when he gets tired of knocking, he will leave. But you don’t open that door.

James 4:7 “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (KJV)

Many areas could be potentially infected with a person getting the out of control disease. If you allow this disease to infect you, it will control you. This disease breaks up relationships and separates mothers from the…

FASTING AND PRAYER:

Fasting can be described as abstaining from food, or some types of food, especially as an act of religious observance. Fasting is an area where you would need to develop discipline and controlled to be accurate and effective. Your mind has to be spiritually conditioned to conduct an effective fast. You must pray when fasting. They both work hand and hand.

(Matthew 6:16) – “When you go without food so you can pray better, do not be as those who pretend to be someone they are not. They make themselves look sad so people will see they are going without food. For sure, I tell you, they have all the reward they are going to get.” (NLV)

Jesus fasted for forty days and forty nights. This brings Him into a place that when He is weak that’s when He is strong. The outer appearance shouldn’t resemble the inner appearance. The evil one observed the outer physical appearance of Jesus, which resembled hunger, but this was not a sign that the spiritual man was weak. While the adversary/devil tempted…

HOW TO OVERCOME FEAR.

Isn’t it very interesting that we were not given the spirit of fear, however, we still insist in adopting this character in our life. If reality shows his presence, then we will understand that we all were born with a sound mind, with no fear insight. Where did this thing call fear come from, and why is it lingering in our mind so much?

Fear is only a fake emotion that appeared to be real. Look at this.

A young baby comes out from his/her mother’s womb and signals that he or she in okay by making a crying loud noise. This pattern continued whenever a need is presence.

Then as he or she begins to grow, they crawl and crawl on the floor with no fear at all. Then they try to stand up and walk, even after many times of falling they still try.

Looking at this picture, where is the fear that we are trying to hold on to so badly came from, and how could we get read of it? The unpleasant feeling of anxiety or apprehension caused by the presence or anticipation of danger was not in your ori…

HOW DO YOU GET SAVED

Getting saved is not as default and confused as many may paint it to be. In fact, getting saved is a very good thing which changes your life to somebody with good value and integrity.

Look at it in this way, you are saved from the negativity and all the bad things that this world has. You are saved from going some place I believe you don’t want to go, hell. But the main meaning for saved is living a Christian life style. This life style symbolically represents how Jesus would life on an everyday bases.

According to 1 John 5:11-12, the Bible says: “God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. Let me sum this up for you, your eternal destination is all contingent on one thing, whether or not you have the Son of God. Not whether or not you have religion or Christianity, but whether you have Jesus

So how do you get Jesus? God’s pretty clear about that. He says, for example, in John 3:36, “…

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN SUCCESS IS ABOUT TO HAPPENED

To many time we give up at the brink of success. All who triumph to their ultimate goals in life had to face adversity. When you about to mention those famous words, I quiet. This is an indication that success is right around the corner waiting to see what the next move you will take is.

Change: When change begins to occur in your life in a positive way, don’t fight against it, grab a hold of it and don’t let go. When change makes you fell uncomfortable, don’t run from it, run towards it. When change makes you weep because of what you have to let go off, wipe your eyes and look towards where you help comes from. Towards God, because if He allows this change to occur in your life, is because He is getting ready to bless you in a mighty way. That means that success is coming in your direction.

Difficulties: It’s so unfortunate that this is where most of the mistake has been made when it comes to succeeding in life. Do you not know that hard times and difficulties only come to prepare u…

DEFINING LIFE PRINCIPLES

A PARABLE OF TRUST

Are you rich or poor? Do you want to stay or go? Your mind tossed to and fro, saying, is it another or me. I will open my heart and incline my ear; my mouth shall speak wisdom, the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding. What I lose I could win, and if I win I could lose. In my wealth, and my riches, I will not boast. For God giveth and He taketh.



THE MEANING OF THIS PARABLE OF TRUST

In life there are rich people and poor people. All sometimes have undecided minds, wondering where would their strength come from in the time of need. But if they open their ears and listen to the wisdom of the elders, they would get understanding, that to win, you sometime have to lose, so if you boast about your wealth and riches, remember, God not only gives you, but, He also could take it away

Never make a decision under pressure. Allow yourself to have clear and define understand of what you about to do or say. Take a moment to relax and mediate, and you will see the bigger picture.

Never make a decision when you are in pain. As to the heat of the moment. For example, spousal disagreements, family feud, friends argument. Etc. When decisions are made out of your frustration and anger, it tend to be the wrong one, and end-up causing more harm that good.

Never make a decision to get revenged. Some may not believe this but good always prevail over evil. And when it does, you want to be in a good position to reap what you so. What you want to is commit to the LORD GOD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. (Proverbs 16:1 NIV)

When making a decision, you want to think ahead, in the future, in other …

PRAYER MASTER KEY

Whenever a person is praying for a particular thing or engaging in spiritual warfare, these attributes must be taken into consideration. Single minded is a must; it is the master key for prayer. In Matthew 6:24 the scripture said “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon”.(KJV) Your mind must be totality on one thing, which is God. Many times when we pray, we tend to focus on the negative that is happening in your life at that particular time, which will bring a hindrance in your pray. As I have said before, sometimes you need to prayer before you pray. This will give you a single mind to conduce your praying.
If God is to answer you prayer He wants all of you and not to share you with another person or object or things. In James 3:11, the scripture said, “Do a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter water or yield salt water and fresh w…

"WHAT DOES LIFE MEAN TO YOU"

If the race of life begins to get so heavy on you that you are thinking about giving up and getting out of control, remember this. The creator, who made you, is the one who controlled that weight that is heavy on your shoulder. His name is Elohim, meaning he knows what you are thinking. There is nothing that could happen without Him knowing about it and how to handle the situation. Try God before you get out of control.

Life is about something exciting; it doesn’t mean that situations and circumstances wouldn’t occur in your life. It doesn’t require being perfect and fault free. It does not require having all the wealth and education that you want.

Life is about being burden free, worry free, stress free, and able to have the time needed to serve God and help others etc. Life is about laying aside every weight, and the thing, which so easily beset you, so you could run the race that is set before you.

The things that occurred in your life that made you uncomfortable are there to detour …

THE ROAD TO SUCCESS

There are three stages in the path to gain success. These stages are growth (growing), develop and mature. (Maturity)

The first of these stages is growth. If you evaluate and investigate all things that were made by God, they have one thing in common, they have to grow. From humans to plants and animals, all starts young (small) and eventually must grow. If for any reason any of these things are not growing, they are looked on as deformed or possible abnormal. As a result special care has to apply in attempt to get them back on track. So how do you grow?

It takes food for growth. Whether spiritual or natural, food is the main ingredient for growth. When it comes to success, the food that ignites your growth process is information and knowledge. Success is not obtainable without good information. So you must put your self in right place at the right time. Go to the right function, and read the right book. Associate your self with knowledgeable and will educated people in reference to wha…

GOD ANSWER’S PRAYER

It is the answering of prayer which brings praying out of the realm of dry, dead things, and makes praying a life and power. It is the answer to prayer, which brings things to pass, changes the natural trend of things, and orders all things according to the will of God. It is the answer to prayer, which takes praying out of the regions of fanaticism, and saves it from being Utopian. It is the answer to prayer, which makes praying a power of God and for man, and makes praying real and divine.

To pray and receive clear answers, not once or twice, but daily, this is the sure test, and the gracious point of our vital connection with Jesus Christ. To get unquestioned answers to prayer is not only important as to the satisfying of our desires, but is also the evidence of our abiding in Christ. When prayer is answered, it is such, which glorifies God. Answer to prayer is the convincing proof of our right relations to God. We are rich good and holy by answer prayer. It is the answer sent dire…

THREE STAGES TO PUT PRAYER IN MOTION

1: Expectation 2: Listen 3: Action.When it comes to pray and getting result, your expectation is important. Do not expect anything natural from the spirit, or anything spiritual from the natural. Each one is different from each other. The natural things are the evidence of what occurred during the spiritual encounter. If you master this concept, you are on your way to seeing result.Prayer has been called old fashion and out dated, but to the one who has experience the wonderful result of seeing it’s worked in their life, it’s a working ability that changes lives in a dramatic way when it is use correctly. The first stage to experience result is your EXPECTATION. Expectation is the combination of faith and believes. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1 KJV). When you kneel down to pray, you must first have faith in what you believe will occur when you pray.Pray is like the coming of a storm. At first there is a clam in the air li…
