KEYS TO OPEN DOORS (PART 2)

Title: KEYS TO OPEN DOORS (Part 2)

Almost all people want to be successful. But not all succeed. Last Sunday we’ve talked about Key #1 which is FAITH and key #2, PRAYER. Have you applied them yet? Today we’ll talk about the two remaining keys that we can use to open the right doors.

If there is one thing that you want you settle in your life, it is your key #3. What do you value the most? Is it your career? Is it your family? Your key #3 is PRIORITY. In the Bible it is stated that you must seek God first, and all these things shall be added unto you. Our priority is God” when we are right with God and our hearts just prioritize seeking Him then we are certainly bound for success. What you value, you seek.

Faith, prayer and priority are keys 1, 2, 3. Lastly, our key #4 is PERSISTENCE. When we pray, God always answers our prayers. But sometimes we tend to box God’s ways in our terms. God answers prayers in His own terms. You just don’t understand because you fail to acknowledge God’s ways are far better than yours. Our job is to be persistent in our relationship with Him. We become persistent because we know that God will surely answer our prayers. We are persistent because we know our God is a God who values us. We are very sure and confident. For if we are certain about something we will not give up. Don’t give up! Be persistent, set your priorities, have faith and treat prayer like the air that you breathe. Then you will enter God’s open doors and experience God’s work all throughout your life.

Matthew 7:7-8, NLT, "Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”


KEYS TO OPEN DOORS (Part 1)

Title: KEYS TO OPEN DOORS

Matthew 6:25-33, NLT, “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? 28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? 31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”

To open the door of your house, you need to use a key. To get in your car, you need to use a key. To unlock doors this Year of Open Doors and have them opened, we need to have keys as well. They keys are very basic yet very essential as we about to engage ourselves in this year of open doors. There are four keys that we will dig deep into. But we’ll just be talking about two of these for now so we may savor every bit of them.

The first key is something that we can’t ignore and we can’t live without. And this key has been emphasized in the Bible for so many times. The first key is faith. How do you know if your faith is firm? One manifestation of unwavering faith is joy and confidence in the promises of God even if we can’t see them as of the moment. On the other hand worry is the enemy of faith. A person with little faith worries a lot. But Jesus said not to worry, for our heavenly Father takes care of even the plants and animals that He created. Just imagine what God has in store for you, his children. Worrying makes you stagnant while faith makes you a creative problem solver.

They second key is so basic that sometime most of take this for granted. We tend to overlook its power and impact in our relationship with God. And sometimes it becomes our last resort where in fact it should be our first response. This second key is prayer. When we sometimes work very hard for something to the point of exhaustion, we get frustrated simply because this something is not materializing. And we wonder why. With all the effort and energy, why do we fail? It’s because this door that you are trying so hard to open is not from the Lord. You didn’t pray about it that’s why you just worked for it and it turns out that it’s not they right one for you. When you work, you work. When you pray, God works. There is power in prayer because in God’s system when you submit to Him and acknowledge that he is the source that’s the time when God is working best! Do not worry about anything. Pray about everything.


Faith and prayer are two of the four invaluable keys that we must take seriously to open God’s vast doors for you

MIRACLES TAKE PLACE WHERE THE WILL OF GOD COLLIDES WITH FAITH OF MAN

Title: Miracles take place where the will of God collides with faith of Man
Vision Day 2016
By: Pastor Anthony D. Martinez

We may be overwhelmed by the circumstances we are experiencing. To tell you the truth. What’s more important is what God is doing. Do not rely on what you see. Rely on God and His promises to you. You have to realize that God’s will for your life is far bigger and far greater than all your plans combined. If you are sure that whatever is happening around you is the will of God then you will start seeing miracles happen. We are not to be influenced by the natural things we see but we see through a supernatural life perspective with God.

God can do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that you can ask or think of. When you experience something that is bigger than you, ask yourself if you can do it. If you can’t do it, you are right because only God can. All you need to have is an unwavering faith like that of Abraham’s. Because whatever God has promised, he fulfils. When God asks you to do something, you have to do it even if it means getting out of your comfort zones. And to be able to do that you have to be firm in your faith. God’s promises are not just meant to be underlined, they are meant to be practiced.

Romans 4:16-21, NLT, “So the promise is received by faith. It is given as a free gift. And we are all certain to receive it, whether or not we live according to the law of Moses, if we have faith like Abraham’s. For Abraham is the father of all who believe. 17 That is what the Scriptures mean when God told him, “I have made you the father of many nations.” This happened because Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing. 18 Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping—believing that he would become the father of many nations. For God had said to him, “That’s how many descendants you will have!” 19 And Abraham’s faith did not weaken, even though, at about 100 years of age, he figured his body was as good as dead—and so was Sarah’s womb. 20 Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. 21 He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises.”

Isaiah 43:16-19, NLT, “I am the LORD, who opened a way through the waters, making a dry path through the sea. I called forth the mighty army of Egypt with all its chariots and horses. I drew them beneath the waves, and they drowned, their lives snuffed out like a smoldering candlewick. “But forget all that— it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”


Now that you have established your unwavering faith, you are now ready to receive what God has in store for you. Because this year is the year of Open Doors! Be ready to enter God’s wide open doors this year!

For God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable. – Romans 11:29, NIV
