• If God did something for one person, he’ll do it for everybody. God never does something for somebody that He won’t do for somebody else as long as they meet the same requirements. This is called the law of first mention. If something is mentioned in scripture and you qualify for what is mentioned, you can have it. As your faith is, so be it.
Around midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening. Suddenly, there was a massive earthquake, and the prison was shaken to its foundations. All the doors immediately flew open, and the chains of every prisoner fell off!
— Acts 16:25-26 NLT
• Your worship can help other people get free if they allow it. Your freedom can set others free. People watching you can experience their own freedom by the freedom you walk in.
The jailer woke up to see the prison doors wide open. He assumed the prisoners had escaped, so he drew his sword to kill himself. But Paul shouted to him, “Stop! Don’t kill yourself! We are all here!” The jailer called for lights and ran to the dungeon and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. Then he brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
— Acts 16:27-30 NLT
• If we truly believe in Jesus, our family will follow suit.
• If you share Jesus with someone, God won’t override someone’s will, but He will open their eyes to understand.
• God has a vision for our lives that is pre-Garden of Eden, before the Earth was cursed with sin.
• There will be times the curse of the earth will touch you, just don’t camp out there. Get back to praying “thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on Earth as in Heaven.”
• God won’t increase our faith, we need to ask Him to remove the doubt and unbelief. The surest way to do that is to stay in the Word.
• If we aren’t changing, we are in man-made religion.
• God doesn’t consult your past to determine your future.
But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.”
— John 4:23-24 NLT
• True worshippers worship God in spirit and truth. There are a variety of ways to worship God. He will meet you where you are.
• You need a door opened? Worship God. Need a breakthrough? Worship God. Bound by something? Worship God.
Worship opens doors, breaks chains and draws us closer to God. That’s what worship can do in your life.
