3 Keys To Living the Right Life

We can live a life and live it wrong or live it right.

If you want to live the right life…

1. The right atmosphere – creating the right atmosphere with praise.

2. The right energy source – The power of the Holy Spirit

If you’re fighting the flesh with the flesh you’re not going to win.

Ephesians 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness.”

A. The problems, challenges or addictions that we try to “fight” we will always lose.

But we have a Energy Source

1. We have a supernatural energy source — for the believer THE Holy Spirit

PRAYING IN AN UNKNOWN TONGUE,

PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT,

A LANGUAGE THAT GOD GIVES will give us the energy, the

1 CORINTHIANS 14:2 “FOR ONE WHO SPEAKS IN A TONGUE SPEAKS NOT TO MEN BUT TO GOD.”

WE BYPASS THE NATURAL MIND, AND OTHER OPINIONS when we pray in the spirit

PAUL SAYS IN 1 COR. 14 “I THANK GOD I SPEAK WITH TONGUES MORE THAN YOU ALL”

WHEN YOU PRAY IN AN UNKNOWN TONGUE — IT’S THE BELIEVERS ENERGY SOURCE.

It disrupts the enemies plans short circuits

ISAIAH 28:11 “WITH STAMMERING LIPS AND AN UNKNOWN TONGUE HE WILL SPEAK TO HIS PEOPLE, IT’LL BE A REFRESHING. IT’LL BE A ENERGY SOURCE…”

IT’S WHERE WE GET OUR ENERGY FROM! It’ refreshing, it will edify the Believer!


ROMANS 8: “WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO PRAY, THE SPIRIT HIMSELF WILL INTERCEDE FOR US.”

HE WANTS TO PRAY FOR THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD THROUGH YOU…

HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

  • YOU GET BAPTIZED IN THE Holy Spirit
  • YOU GET FILLED WITH THE Holy Spirit

AMERICA NEEDS TO BE FILLED WITH THE Holy Spirit

⁃ IT WILL MAKE YOU LOVE EVERYBODY

⁃ WOULD’NT BE ANY RACE ISSUES

⁃ IT WOULD MAKE YOU LOVE ONE ANOTHER

⁃ BE FOR ONE ANOTHER

⁃ ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER

⁃ THERE IS TOO MUCH HATE

⁃ TOO MUCH FLESH

WE NEED THE POWER OF THE Holy Spirit BACK IN OUR LIVES!

Ever After Me

I find myself speechless at times when I think about the love of the Father, the reckless, fanatical all consuming father who was there before it all was made, or created. Bible says that He knew us even before we were conceived. He knows the plans, He has the blueprints to our lives and by trusting Him He will unveil those plans as we walk by faith as we do the Will of the Father. In this story we see the pursuit of the Father and His love for mankind.

Here is a story of a man who was blind from birth. Who has never seen the sunrise or sunset. He’s never seen the birds of the air or anything that moves nor has he seen the handiwork of God’s creation, until now.

We don’t have to know everything about God before we come to Him. He is a mystery. But yet in the pursuit of Him, He unravels the mystery before our eyes so that we may see the works that He displays in our lives!

Ever Before Us

John 9:1“As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth.”

‭‭Jesus knew him without asking any questions of when or how he was blind. Jesus seen Him available for a miracle.

“Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him.”

‭‭John‬ ‭9:3‬ ‭ESV‬‬

I believe when we lose the wonder of God we begin to be blind to the opportunities of what God can do in our lives and as well as others.

Always After Us

“Having said these things, he spit on the ground and made mud with the saliva. Then he anointed the man’s eyes with the mud and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which means Sent). So he went and washed and came back seeing.”

‭‭John‬ ‭9:6-7‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Being sent in order to be healed was the least that this man could do. Just imagine the anticipation, the hope that was stirring inside of this man and the enthusiasm as he washed his face in the pool.

“One thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.””

‭‭John‬ ‭9:25‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Always After Me

“Jesus heard that they had cast him out, and having found him he said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” He answered, “And who is he, sir, that I may believe in him?” Jesus said to him, “You have seen him, and it is he who is speaking to you.” He said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped him. Jesus said, “For judgment I came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and those who see may become blind.” Some of the Pharisees near him heard these things, and said to him, “Are we also blind?” Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would have no guilt; but now that you say, ‘We see,’ your guilt remains.”

‭‭John‬ ‭9:35-41‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Jesus was looking for this man? And He found him. In a place where Jesus knew where he would be. At His feet. It’s where He has found me and you. He is always ever after me.

3 Keys to Living the Right Life

KEY #1

Do you ever wonder if you’re living the right life? In Proverbs it talks about a way that seems right to a man but in the end it will lead to destruction. That’s the price we pay if we go our own way. But Jesus says in John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am lthe way, and mthe truth, and nthe life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Key # 1 – The Right Atmosphere

3 keys to living the right life

Psalm 34:1-4 “ 

We can live a life and live it wrong or live it right.

Psalm 34:1-4

 “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

2 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;

The humble shall hear of it and be glad.

3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me,

And let us exalt His name together.

4 I sought the Lord, and He heard me,

And delivered me from all my fears.

When we begin to magnify God and praise God that is the key to deliverance.The enemy chooses fear because it is so gripping.

In our life we create the atmosphere. 

Emotions create atmospheres 

If someone is sad angry, upset without a word being said from their spirit you feel whatever they are feeling.

But when we MAGNIFY

When you praise the Lord you confuse the strategy of hell.

When you praise the Lord you take control of the territory you are in.

From worry to worship.

From panic to praise.

How?

Praise is a divine invitation 

That’s How we get Gods favor and blessings and God responds to the atmosphere of praise, thanksgiving, of gratitude!

So whatever situation you may be in, press in to Him! Give Him praise and see how things can change!

Purpose of His Presence

There is nothing like going on vacation to see those who you haven’t seen in such a long time. Knowing the activities and adventures that you will embark on are priceless. The time that you will spend together laughing, maybe crying about stories that you have experienced in the past are priceless. Maybe it’s just a phone call to hear their voice that you haven’t heard in a long time. That time together is priceless.

That is how it is with the Lord, David says in Psalms 63:5

“Daily I will worship you passionately and with all my heart. My arms will wave to you like banners of praise. I overflow with praise when I come before you, for the anointing of your presence satisfies me like nothing else. You are such a rich banquet of pleasure to my soul. – Passion Translation

Q: So What is The Purpose of His Presence?

A: He, the Holy Spirit keeps you from wandering and causes you to separate (consecrate) anything else that is trying to take His place.

Matthew 4:18-22

18 While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen.19 And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”[a]20 Immediately they left their nets and followed him. 21 And going on from there he saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets, and he called them. 22 Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.

There was something about Him that made these men leave behind their lives their livelihoods all that they have ever know they threw it away for the cause of Christ. What was it? They saw His Presence so valuable.

Psalm 16:11

“You make known to me cthe path of life; 

in your presence there is dfullness of joy; 

at your right hand are epleasures forevermore.”

Do you see His Presence so valuable and so priceless?

Choosing to Worship

Psalms 103:1-4

“Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and all that is within me,
    bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
    who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
    who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,

David knew the grace and deliverance of God many times. In these 4 verses we see a fundamental truth.

Let me start out by mentioning that when we choose to rejoice, when we choose to pray no matter what circumstance, God is going to show up in a powerful way.

Rejoice no matter what!

This is sometimes the hardest thing to do is when your in the middle of something is to get your praise on. But it is very essential to keep focus on Him as He directs your steps.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 ” Rejoice always; pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

When you enter His presence with praise, He enters your circumstances with power.

You have the choice to give or withhold praise.

I see David’s heart in these scriptures it was like he was telling himself…

Self, I don’t care what you feel like right now, 

I don’t care what trials I’ve been through this week,

 I don’t care what the situation I’m in right now.

 I don’t care what others might think or say about me…

As long as I’ve got breath in these lungs, I’m going to bless the Lord, and all that is within me, I’m going to bless His holy name!

We are told in Hebrews 13:15 “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.

When we live a life fully surrendered to Him, I believe what may come will not be a total surprise to us. We know we are in His hands and everything is in control.

Psalms 107:1-2

“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!

“Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, in whom He has delivered from the hand of the enemy.”

Forget not His benefits

We bless Him because:

He’s good

He’s forgiving

He’s freed us

He’s healed us

He’s with us

He’s for us
