Prayer, Faith and Obedience

  1. 1. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE Important Keys in Hearing the Voice of God
  2. 2. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE Have you ever heard the audible voice of God speaking directly to you? How did I made God moved in His thrones and talks to me? When I was a baby Christian I kept asking God on how some men of God gets their direct guidance from the Lord.  Why doesn’t he talk to me like that?
  3. 3. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE I used to think that God only spoke to the chosen few – so they could relay his messages to the masses. That’s why Joyce Meyer, Beth Moore and Lisa TerKeurst tell stories of receiving direct instruction from God.  But what about the rest of us? How are we supposed to feel when we listen for the booming voice from the heavens or the gentle whisper of God.
  4. 4. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE You see, you can’t hear God’s voice if you don’t have a personal conversation with Him. In fact, every positive thought filled with encouragement, creativity, compassion and generosity, comes from him. So essentially, if you’re having thoughts like this, you are hearing His voice him, right?
  5. 5. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE KEYS IN HEARING GOD’S VOICE: PRAYER is the open divine communication to our creator. We believe that when we are praying, we are talking to God. Philippians 4:6 “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God”
  6. 6. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE FAITH is belief with strong conviction; firm belief in something for which there may be no tangible proof; complete trust in or devotion to. Faith is the opposite of doubt. Faith is possibly the single-most important element of the Christian life.  That faith increases the ability and the efficiency of prayer is true; but it is likewise true that prayer increases the ability and efficiency of faith. Prayer and faith, work, act and react, one upon the other.
  7. 7. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE Hebrews 11:1 states, “Now Faith is the assurance of the things we hope for, and certain of the things we cannot see” Hebrews 11:6 "Without faith it is impossible to please God, for whoever would approach him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him”
  8. 8. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE OBEDIENCE means we are willing to obey or follow orders. Obedience to God as our Father is vital in Christian life. We maybe walking in prayer and faith, yet we continue in known disobedience with God. We maybe always inside and active in our churches worshipping and praising God, Yet we don’t have a real holy fellowship with God. Deuteronomy 6:18 “And you shall do what is right and good in the sight of the Lord, that it may go well with you, and that you may go in and take possession of the good land that the Lord swore to give to your fathers
  9. 9. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE  Prayer is obedience.  Faith is the fruit of prayer.  Obedience to God makes it easy to believe and trust God.  Jesus taught that obedience and answered prayer are related: “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you” (John 15:7, NASB)
  10. 10. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE “God becomes a divine vending machine, into which we must place so many units of obedience before pulling the lever (through prayer) that causes answers to drop into our hands.” (Quotes from unknown author)
  11. 11. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE Five Ways to Practice Hearing God’s Voice
  12. 12. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE 1. Set aside time…(Reading Bible, Spiritual Diary/Devotion, Quiet Time) (Matthew 4:4) “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’
  13. 13. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE 2. Be still with the Lord
  14. 14. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE Stillness is not a physical state. The kind of stillness that open our heart to God is a stillness of the mind. So whatever it takes for you to quiet your mind, find a way to do it every day, which means learn not to worry of anything because God is always in control of situations. FAITH is in Him: enduring the pains without complaints, responding righteously in life's persecutions.
  15. 15. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE 3. Stop demanding answers. Do you have an agenda every time you speak with God? Maybe you show up with praise and gratitude sometimes. Having a true personal relationship with our Creator means we are relating to Him as our best friend, sharing our different phases of emotions… When I am sad or in a happy mode, I talk to Him, Praise Him and Thank Him.....and just allow Him to lead the conversation and be with you in whatever situations. God always want to embrace us, He is longing to be with us always…
  16. 16. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE 4. Expect to hear from him Be always excited with the Lord…Expect great things from Him….And do not doubt that you’re probably not going to hear him. But if you open up to the possibility that he converses with you all day long, it’s more likely you will be paying attention when he speaks to you.
  17. 17. PRAYER, FAITH AND OBEDIENCE 5. Be on the lookout for his angels Who says God has to speak directly to you in his voice? The Bible tells us he sends messengers all the time. Who are the people in your life who encourage you, inspire you, challenge you to live in Christ-like character?. could they be angels placed in your path for a specific purpose
