Prayer 2021 - July 15 - Think About the Right Things pt 1

Scripture For Today:

Psalm 88:13

“But I cry to you for help, Lord; in the morning my prayer comes before you.”

Think About the Right Things pt 1

We have been studying about Refusing to Worry and how we need to “…but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the Peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” That is Philippians 4:6-7.

Then we studied 1 Peter 5:7 that says, “Casting all your care upon Him; for He cares for you.”

God has shown us in our study that we should be praying, “with thanksgiving,” which includes having the Joy of the Lord and that we are supposed to receive “peace that passes all understanding.” Amen!

But, as we proceed now to verse 8 in Philippians chapter four, we read, “Finally, my brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of a good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

Notice verse 8 goes right along with what we have been studying about prayer. 

After we pray and cast our cares over on the Lord, we receive the Peace of God that guards our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  But we are not finished yet. There is still something else we must do. 

It is outlined in verse 8 – THINK ON THINGS THAT ARE “true, honest, lovely, of a good report, are of virtue and praise.”

When the devil tries to come along and create negative thoughts in your mind, just say out loud, “I’ve cast the care of that over on the Lord and now I claim the Peace of God belongs to me. It passes all of my human understanding and now I’m only going to think on things that are HONEST and TRUE. His Word is True. I’m only going to think on things that are honest. Devil, you’re a liar. His Word is Truth. That is as honest as it can get. I’m only going to think on His Word. I’m only going to think on things that are PURE AND LOVELY. God is pure Love. His Word is lovely in my eyes, ears and heart. I’m only going to think on His Word. I’m only going to think on things that are of a GOOD REPORT. His Word is a good report as I share what the Lord has done for me. Therefore, I will share my testimony of how God has delivered me from this situation, too! Praise God!

When you start talking back to the devil like that – talking back to situations you find yourself in – and speaking the Word of God over those situations, you will see the difference!

God’s Word works every – single – time. It never fails!  If there is a situation in which it fails, 100% of the time it is because of something we did. God NEVER FAILS. His WORD NEVER FAILS. Jesus IS the Word – and Jesus never fails! 

Even if we die – His Word worked!  “Absent from the Body and present with the Lord!”  

Praise God! Shout AMEN somebody somewhere!

Bob Thibodeau

Pastor Robert Thibodeau has been in online ministry since starting his own podcast in mid-2009. Within about six months, he was offered a slot on nationwide Christian AM radio. His broadcast was heard in four major markets for one year.

He then started what today is called, "Evangelism Radio" and went live 24/7 beginning on October 4, 2010 and continues to this day. Now with over 50 broadcasters submitting programming on a weekly basis, Evangelism Radio has listeners in over 160 nations and all 50 states. It was also ranked by Shoutcast.com as #1 in the world in the Christian Talk genre on many occasions.

In late 2017, Pastor Bob began an interview style podcast called "The Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast." On this podcast, Pastor Bob interviews Christians from various walks of life on how they use their Faith to achieve success. Authors, recording artists, business CEO's, non-profit leaders and pastors and ministers frequent the show and provide amazing insight to build your faith. In only 3 years time, The KCR Podcast has published almost 900 episodes and Pastor Bob conducted over 700 interviews!

In early 2018, in response to the lack of any Christian themed podcast hosting platform in the market place, Pastor Bob coordinated with the iconic Mark Asquith and his team, with the result being "FaithCasters.net." A "Christian podcast hosting and marketing company created by Christians for Christians."

Due to the immense success Pastor Bob has achieved in the online ministry world, he is often asked by others "How to start a podcast." Not wanting to refer Christian brothers and sisters back into the world for help in establishing a Christian themed podcast, he started to develop the "Podcast-Training" platform offered through our ministry. He conducts training on a weekly basis to assist others in the development of their own personal podcast as well as ministry related podcasts that can air on Evangelism Radio.

Now, he has placed all of this information under one website location, "Podcasters for Christ." This makes it easier for other Christians to find the services they need in one spot rather than having to visit several different websites.
