2 Timothy 3:16 - STUDY TO SHOW YOURSELF APPROVED
Colossians 1:29 tells us to work according to God’s working, which is supposed to be working in us mightily! Walking in love does this. Living by faith does this. Praying effectively does this. Another way to do this is to STUDY God’s word! When Paul came to Berea to preach in Acts 17, those who listened to him didn’t just accept or reject his message. It says they SEARCHED THE SCRIPTURES to see if what Paul was saying was accurate. This is what we must do too, since everything God does is always in line with what His word has already said. You owe it to God, to yourself and to the world to STUDY! And guess what? Study takes time and effort. You don’t just sit down casually and read a few verses and then expect to become mighty in the Scriptures! No! If you want to be approved by God, you’re going to have to devote much time to reading and studying your Bible. Do you do this?
If you study the New Testament, you’ll find that there are plenty of false teachers and false cults out there. For every legitimate ministry gift or church, Satan has a counterfeit. God has Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers. Satan has false impersonations of all of them. God has anointed churches teaching the uncompromised word of God. Satan has false churches and denominations built on lies and deception. How can you tell the true from the false? KNOW THE WORD OF GOD! Don’t believe anyone, and don’t believe signs, wonders or miracles unless they can be proven and supported by the word of God. Most of the time, people are led astray not because they don’t love God, but because they were ignorant of the scriptures, and didn’t recognize the deception they were being exposed to until it was too late. Over the years, I’ve seen good preachers become deceived with false doctrine, and firmly believe they’re totally right in what they believe! This is the power of deception. They that are deceived don’t think they are , that’s why you have to study and know the scriptures so the devil can’t deceive you, either directly or by using false teachers. God can’t work through you mightily until you get a firm foundation of Bible knowledge under your belt! Period!

Ephesians 6:18 - PRAY ALL THE PRAYERS YOU NEED TO PRAY
We’re learning how to let God work through us MIGHTILY, according to Colossians 1:29. We’ve looked at walking in love, and living by faith so far. Another way to do this is through prayer. Not just some religious exercise disguised as prayer, but real New Testament praying, where we take our proper place of authority on earth, and join forces with God to get the job done in Jesus’ name. The verse today tells us that part of our spiritual armor to wear everyday is praying with ALL MANNER of prayer. That means there are different kinds of prayers, depending on what the situation may call for. Christians must learn the different types of prayers to know which prayer is the right prayer to pray at any given time. That’s why many of us have experienced frustration in prayer because we haven’t prayed the right prayer at the right time.
There is the prayer of faith. Then there’s intercessory prayer. Then there’s the prayer of praise and worship. Then there’s the prayer of binding and loosing. Then there’s the prayer of agreement. Then there’s prayer in tongues. Then there’s the prayer of consecration. Then there’s the prayer of consecration. Then there’s the prayer of importunity. Different types of prayers for different situations, but all designed to produce VICTORY in Jesus’ Name. Do you know which prayer to pray each time you decide to pray? Most Christians do not. But if you’re to come to a place in life where God works in you and through you mightily, you must become proficient in prayer. There is no substitute for this, because prayer is the greatest exercise of authority on earth! Remember friend, WE have the dominion on this earth, not God! God gave it to man in the garden at the beginning back in Genesis 1:26,27. Through Jesus, we have had that dominion restored to us, so that now, when we pray in the name of Jesus, things MUST respond to our prayers for the glory of God. So get busy and study about prayer. The more you know, and the more you do it, the more you’ll come to a place of victory in Jesus’ Name.

1 Timothy 6:12 - FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH
Paul told Timothy to fight the good fight of faith. Living by faith is one of the ways we let God be God in our lives. The decision to trust God is a daily discipline we must develop if we’re to let God be God in our lives. In many places with many verses, God commands us to live and walk by faith. Why? Because He is a Faith Being Himself, and because we’re made in His image and likeness, He EXPECTS us to learn how to function like He does. According to Hebrews 11:1, faith is the evidence of things not seen. Taking that one step further, faith is believing that God will do what He’s promised in His word, no matter how things may look otherwise. In life, there is a God-side and a human-side to every victory we enjoy against the devil. God expects us to do what we can do, and we are to believe that He will do what we can’t do. What can we do? Choose to believe! That’s the essence of faith!
When we choose to believe God, like Abraham did in the book of Genesis, we’re calling things that be not as though they were. God does it, and He wants us to do it too. Read Romans 4:17-21 carefully. Abraham is called the father of our faith because he chose to believe God’s word instead of what he saw in the natural that contradicted the promises of God. He knew he and his wife were too old to have children, but since God promised it, he chose to believe it anyway! That’s faith. And by doing that, the world of the IMPOSSIBLE opened up to Abraham, and what was not possible became reality in his life. God wants to do the same for you , He’s no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). In Mark 9:23, Jesus said that ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE to him who believes. What you need to know is that not every Christian is a true believer! Using faith for salvation is the first step, but what about after that? We should be using faith every day for the rest of our lives , choosing to take God at His word even when our circumstances or feelings don’t agree with what God has said. Its your choice, but if you want to let God work in you MIGHTILY, you’re going to have to choose His word over any other word. The doctor may say you’re sick and dying, but God says your healed now (1 Peter 2:24/Matthew 8:17). The checkbook may say you’re broke, but God says that He will supply all your needs by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). The devil may say you’re defeated, but God says you’re more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37). In every area of life - you choose! God’s word, or everyone else’s word. That’s what the good fight of faith is all about!

1 Thessalonians 3:12 - LET GOD’S LOVE FLOW THROUGH YOU
The key word in today’s devotional title is the word “Let”. God’s love is the foundation for everything we are, and will ever become in Christ. 1 Corinthians 13:1-4 tells us that without love in manifestation, our lives are nothing more than hot air, wasted time and effort. The good news is that God’s love is already in you by virtue of the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. When you accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior, the Holy Spirit came to take up permanent residence within you. When that happened, you received the love of God, shed abroad in your heart by the Spirit of God (Romans 5:5). However, just having that love within you doesn’t automatically make you a great lover! No! Love must be practiced in order to develop, just like you have to exercise physical muscles before they grow and become stronger. Are you letting God’s love flow through you? Most believers are not, and that is what is preventing them from coming to the place in life where the power of God dominates in them and through them.
When God says that “Love never fails” in 1 Corinthians 13:8, He means exactly what He says. If you let the love of God have its way in you and through you, you’ll come to the place where the power of God flows through you unimpeded. Its take hard work and constant discipline to get to the place where the love of God dominates your life, but it can and must be done! Love will ALWAYS win out , if only we’ll use it, walk in it, and exercise it on a consistent basis. Like when you’re lifting weights in the gym. If you want to become stronger and look more muscular, you have to lift weights. The more you lift, and the heavier your weight routines become, the stronger you get. That’s the same way we let God’s love grow; by using it, practicing it and letting it develop within us. That’s why the Bible says to rejoice when you get persecuted for your faith (Luke 6:27-31). Why rejoice? Because you know you’re love is being exercised as you choose to love the unlovely. The more unlovely people are, and the more you show love to them in return , the faster your love walk will develop. And when that happens, you are coming to the place whereby God’s love becomes the dominate spiritual force in your life. Our verse today talks about loving in 3 ways. First, love God. Second, love other believers. Third, love the unlovely , the unsaved! When you do that, verse 13 says you will become established in holiness before God, and basically at that point, no man can harm you, no devil can touch you. Jesus proved it can be done, and He told us we could do the same as He did. Are you committed to seeing this love within you develop? If so, don’t whine and complain when difficult people come into your life. Rejoice, and leap for joy! You’re letting God work in you, and His work is MIGHTY!

Colossians 1:29 - HOW TO LET GOD WORK IN YOU MIGHTILY
This verse reveals one of the “secrets” to our success in life and ministry. Like Paul, we must come to the place where the work we do is done according (or in agreement with) to the power of God, which works in us MIGHTILY! I’ve meditated on this verse for years, trying to plum the depths of this simple truth. I’m convinced that herein lies the key to our success as Christians, and as ministers of the Gospel. We have to get to the place (and stay there) where God is flowing through us, and His anointing and power is able to express itself to confirm the things we say about Jesus. When that happens, we get into a “Divine Flow” that carries us to where God wants us to be. There is no struggle. We move beyond trying to work for God, and instead, let God do His work in us. There is a big difference between the two. Are you there yet?
As I’ve meditated on this truth, God has shown me certain ways whereby I can let the Holy Spirit work in me and through me mightily. Notice the word “mightily” here. God’s not just talking about a few answers in prayer to minor issues in our lives. He’s talking about a mighty and convincing flow of power that continues to manifest itself through us for ministry. We’re talking about miracles, signs, wonders and mighty deeds. We’re talking about the signs of the believer , as recorded in Mark 16:15-18. This is what Paul talked about when he told the Corinthians that God’s kingdom does not come in word, but in POWER! We must win this world to Jesus, and to do that, we must have His power in constant manifestation to confirm the things we say about the Lord. Without that power, our message has no life, and no ability to draw anyone to Jesus. So in the next few days, we’ll look at different ways to let God work in us MIGHTILY. You need to pay special attention to these teachings, because you’ll never realize your fullest potential until you learn how to let God’s working work mightily in you!
