Prayer 2021 - July 17 - Think About the Right Things pt 3

Scripture For Today:

Isaiah 37:21

“…and when a prayer or plea is made by anyone among your people Israel—being aware of their afflictions and pains, and spreading out their hands toward this temple…”


Think About the Right Things pt 3

We have been studying about having the right mindset, or thinking about the right things, according to Philippians 4:8, which says: 

 “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.”

You see, right in the midst of trouble, instead of being overcome, we should be the overcomers! Amen! We should victors instead of victims. We should be happy instead of sad. Energetic instead of depressed. We should be encouraged and encouragers instead of being discouraged. Amen!

You can pray for people and help them temporarily. You can bring them into contact with God and His Power which can bring about immediate results. I’ve done it. Amen!  But, as long as they don’t change their thinking, they will be right back where they were and be defeated. In many cases, worse off than before…

Remember, Jesus talked about what happens if you cast an evil spirit out of someone and then they don’t invite the Holy Spirit in to take up residence. He said, in Matthew 12:43-45: 

When an unclean spirit comes out of a man, it passes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, “I will return to the house I left.” On it’s return, it finds the house vacant, swept, clean and put in order. Then it goes and brings with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and dwell there; and the final plight of that man is worse than the first. So will it be with this wicked generation.”…

I  have seen a number of people that were healed in meetings I was in – and I KNOW they were healed because I knew about their condition!  But then, several weeks later, in some cases days later, they were right back in the same condition.

Why? Mainly because they did not change their mindset. And when the devil came back, either through a thought or sometimes another Christian speaking unbelief, they lost their healing. They did not think on things of virtue, praise or anything like that!  Unfortunately, that is the way it is with many believers today.

I want to close today by reading, again, Philippians 4:8, which says: 

 “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.”

That is what we need to do. Anytime a negative thought pops into our minds, I want to encourage you and to pray for you to think about the Word of God and what the Word says about your situation.

Amen!

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.
