The Wealth of Wisdom Part 10

Sunday December 11, 2011

Offering message: III John 2. Your soul can prosper if you are in a prosperous place. God’s will is good and is for your body and soul to prosper. Aaron Ray Zimmerman reported on the purchase of properties in Ukraine for ministry use. A word was given about God’s joy in giving, our surrendering our giftings, obedience, standing, believing, being touched, released, and sent; understand who God is and who you are in Christ. Sermon message: The Israelites left Egypt, a place of bondage, and went into abundance. Getting out of debt is freedom. James 3:13-17 tells us that wisdom can be earthly, sensual, and devilish. If you have envy and strife in your heart, you don’t know who you are. If your faith isn’t working, check out your love walk. James 1:16 warns us to not be deceived. Everything that comes from God is good. Phil. 2:2-4 exhorts us to be like-minded, and the only way we can do that is by agreeing on the Word of God. James 1:2-6 Count it all joy when you fall into various trials. “Count” there means like balancing your books, and you do that by joy and praise. Set your thermostat in prosperity and health, and balance your account with praise. I Sam. 30:1-8 is the account of the captivity of David’s and his men’s wives and families. He wept until he couldn’t weep anymore, but he had the power to praise God. There comes a place where you have to balance your own accounts and encourage yourself.
