TEACH ME TO PRAY 5

When Adam and Eve sinned in the garden they didn’t really understand the consequences of their act. They didn’t know that both physical and spiritual death would fasten upon them.

Doing things without full consciousness of how it will reflect on you and on your relationship with GOD might activate both GOD’S grace and mercy on your behalf but the core issue must be dealt with.

Hebrews 10:21 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

This scripture is a wakeup call to all who are careless in their daily walk. While directed toward those who become apostate the words that stand out are that that say; and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace.

Ephesians 4:29-30 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not bring sorrow to God's Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, God has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption.

Focus your attention upon the word “Holy” in the title Holy Spirit what does this mean to you? 1 Peter 1:16 For the Scriptures say, "You must be holy because I am holy."

It sounds like there is a problem if we live in a way that causes grief to the Spirit of GOD.

What happens when you act in a way that is not acceptable in GOD’S sight?

There is discord between you and the Holy Spirit and guess who has to change to bring back harmony within you. Perhaps we should set up a hypothetical case; you are messing up and you need to pray. But you need help from the Spirit and there is discord between the two of you. Now you try to figure out to get GOD to act upon your behalf but don’t want to straighten up.

Well according to James you are out of luck, for you are double minded and you can’t expect to receive anything from the Lord.

If you want to know how to pray, then plan on learning how to live.

Prayer is not an option it is mandated. It is your greatest tool and weapon. It will buoy you up when the sea is rough.

IT WOULD BE WELL TO PREPARE IN ADVANCE FOR WHATEVER WILL COME YOUR WAY.
