Doing More Than Listen:



Receiving Godís Promise
Godís promises are received when His people live in the reality that God is faithful.

Homework:

Read - Revelation 17-19
Memorize - Revelation 19:11
Apply - Living on the promises of God is to trust the Word of God more than physical sight and human logic. The first step is learning what God has promised to those who love Him. Here are some Scriptures to get you started studying about Godís promises: Proverbs 1:33; Isaiah 40:29-31; Matthew 11:28-29, John 14:1-4, 27; Romans 8:37-39; Philippians 4:19; 2 Peter 1:4; Revelation 22:12-14. Read each passage and write down what God has promised in His Word. What is one way that you can act upon each of these promises in what you do, how you think, and how you communicate with others? Try to find more promises of God in His Word. Write them down as you find them and identify how you can act upon them in your daily routine.

Receiving Confidence in Prayer
Prayer is essential for Godís people to know they belong to Him and are forgiven.

Homework:

Read - 2 Chronicles 5-7
Memorize - 2 Chronicles 6:40
Apply - Prayer is something that a person must be dedicated to doing. It cannot be optional in the life of Godís child but a necessary thing as important as eating, drinking, and even breathing. Pray for one another to be drawn closer to the Lord. Pray that God would reveal sin as soon as it springs up in your life. Pray for the sinful actions and words of fellow brothers and sisters in Christ for the Lord to help them stop doing and saying those things and start honoring God instead. Pray for those who are lost rather than judging them and condemning them. Ask God how He would want to use you in telling them about salvation through faith in Christ.

Being A Sufferer with Christ
Jesus calls His followers to bear His reproach so people can see His power and grace.

Homework:

Read - Psalm 7-9
Memorize - Psalm 9:2
Apply There must be daily, measurable change in a personís walk with the Lord. This can only be tracked by understanding where you are presently in your journey with the Lord so that you can know when things change. It is like tracking the physical height of a child as they grow by placing a mark on the wall to show a difference in height. Spiritually, this can be done by writing down all that you know about God, His Word, and things he has done. Each day record new things that you have learned and have seen for a wonderful record of how you are growing in Christ.

Being Confident in Fear
Threats are continually present but Godís power is sufficient to save.

Homework:

Read - Revelation 4-6
Memorize - Revelation 5:9
Apply - Prayer is appropriate but necessary in all situations. We are called to pray continually by God through the Apostle Paul in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 so that we will know how to handle all things in a God honoring way. Start the day with praise for rest and the provisions God has provided for you in the coming hours of the day. Pray throughout the day for wisdom in responding to the events and circumstances each hour brings. End each day with praise, recalling all the Lord has done, and asking Him to prepare you for the next day with sweet rest.
