Intimacy with God

By smooth words he will turn to godlessness those who act wickedly toward the covenant, but the people who know their God shall be strong, and do great exploits.  Daniel 11:32 

 

6 Blessings of Intimacy with God

  1. You will have the power to overcome Satan’s Temptations…
    1. The Word of God will teach us what is right from wrong…When Satan tried to tempt Jesus, Jesus simply used the word of God to overcome him…Matt 4:3-4
  2. Your mind will be washed from worldly patterns and transformed to divine mindsets
That He might sanctify her, cleansing her by the washing of the water in the word. Ephesians 5:26

 

  1. Your faith will grow
    1. Faith is given to us in the form of a mustard seed, then it grows!!! This empowers us to receive answers to our prayers and command life to situations and they obey. Matt 17:20
    2. Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ Rom 10:17
  2. You Will Know the Will of God for life
Ephesians 2:9-10 Paul says, “God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.”

There is a plan for our lives that God has ordained for us to walk out. God’s great salvation & Holy Spirit empowers us to actually do what God has predestined us to do.  

I don’t believe for one minute that He saved us so that we can live our lives unto ourselves. He saved us to complete a mission for which we were created. When we enter into that we will find a great sense of significance and great fulfillment. Let’s be all that we can be by the grace that has come to us in Christ.

 

  1. You will be prosperous and successful in all you do
    1. Psalm 1:2-3 his delight is only in the Law of Jehovah; and in His Law he meditates day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivulets of water that brings forth its fruit in its seasons, and its leaf shall not wither, and all which he does shall be blessed.
    2. I have prospered in times that others could understand…retail shop closed Sunday..etc
  2. You will learn to hear the voice of God
    1. I say learn, because many people struggle with this…hearing the voice of God, start with what His written word already says and then what you have, more will be given and he will have an abundance…but do nothing and what you have will be taken away…

Example…how we treat the poor, our wives, our family, our kids..integrity at work..Matt 13:12

 

7.  You will become a mighty son’s & daughter’s that plunder the enemies camp

  1. New Living Translation 2 Tim 3:16-17
    All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 17 God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.
