Prayer 2021 - June 10 - Walking in the Light of God's Word pt 1

Scripture For Today:

 Romans 15:30

“I urge you, brothers and sisters, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me.”

 Walking in the Light of God’s Word pt 1

Jesus said in John 15:7, “If you abide in me and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it should be done unto you.”

We have been studying about “God’s Word Needs to Abide in Us” for several days, but today I want to pivot a little bit and talk with you about “Walking in the Light of God’s Word.” 

We covered yesterday that the Word of God is a light unto our path – and it is. Psalm 119:130 says, “The entrance of your Word gives light.” 

As I shared yesterday, if you have God’s Word in your heart, it will shine a light onto your path. You are then able to walk in the light and you can make progress on what you are trying to do and achieve the results you are seeking. His Light shines into the darkness and reveals the plots of the devil as he is trying to trip you up.

But that can only happen when you have His Word in your heart. Not in your mind – in your heart. Amen!

If there is no action on your part to put God’s Word into your heart, then your path will be dark and it will be easier for the devil to trip you up or send you down a wrong turn. Light on your path only comes through God’s Word and the Word only comes through your eyes, your ears and into your heart. There is no other way. 

You cannot tattoo the Word of God on your body, proclaiming your faith and think that is impressing Jesus or will get you into Heaven. It does not work that way. 

Also, notice there is nothing in this verse talking about STANDING in the light. Nothing. First John 1:7 says, “If we WALK in the Light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another.” It does not say, “If we stand in the Light.” It does not say, “If we look at the light.” It does not say, “If we think about the Light.” It does not say, “If we memorize the light.” 

It says “IF WE WALK in the Light…” 

God’s Word IS a light unto our path. A path is something we walk on. To walk implies action on our part – not God’s part. To walk down that path, only with the Word of God shining a light on the next step – takes Faith. Faith in the Light. Faith in the Word of God. Faith in God Himself. Amen!

So, if we put together the last several different sessions we have been studying, you come to this realization. To get ANYTHING from God, we must do several things…

First, we must pray TO THE FATHER 

When we pray, we do so IN THE NAME OF JESUS

We then must ASK for what we desire

Then we must BELIEVE WE RECEIVE our prayers as answered.

Then we must ACT as if we have received the answer.  Not looking for the answer in the natural – just believing we have already received it and that it will respond in the natural based upon the Spiritual answer we already have

When we do that – we WILL see the results! We have Jesus’s promises on it – as we have already discussed. Several scriptures – I’m not going to go back over them, but let just leave you with Mark 11:24, praise God!

“Therefore, I say unto you, whatever you ask for, in prayer, believe that you have received it and it shall be yours…”

Amen!  

Let’s Pray!

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.
