Corresponding Actions

Corresponding Actions

I love it when I go to church and know that my spirit has been fed with good, strong teaching that will change my life. Today, I come to share something I believe is already radicalizing my praying and harvesting life. Let's go. 

In this coming week, I encourage you to search out the precise word of God for that situation that has caused you sleepless nights. Write the scriptures down personalizing them.

Then pray to God about the situation using His Word to engage Him. God honours His Word even above His name. Talk to Him in His own words. 

Next, begin to plant your Faith-seeds by confessing God's Word out loud as if that were happening live; as if they are existing facts in your life right now. 

Regardless of what is going on around you, keep confessing God's Word because not only are you planting your faith seeds, you are also releasing the power of God into your situation!

While you are doing the above, be sure to ask God continuously to grant you grace to hear His Spirit's guidance on what your 'works' must be. Remember, Faith without Works is Dead. Many of us pray and confess non stop but we forget to ACT! 

Our confessions of faith must be followed by what Pastor Poju calls 'Corresponding Action'.

But so we don't fall into foolishness or  error, God must guide us on what our action must be via His Spirit in our hearts.  Once we hear Him and heed His instruction, the power we have released by our Faith Confessions above will manifest in the physical!!! We will see God move even as we have prayed and confessed! Glory to God!!

Examples abound in the Bible of Corresponding Action but this is one of my favorites: 

Acts 3: 4 -7

Peter and John looked at him intently, and Peter said, “Look at us!” The lame man looked at them eagerly, expecting some money. 

But Peter SAID, “I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!” 
(Prayer/Confession of Faith Releasing Power) 

Then Peter TOOK the lame man by the right hand and HELPED him up. 
(Corresponding Action) 

And AS HE DID, the man’s feet and ankles WERE INSTANTLY HEALED and STRENGTHENED. 
(Manifestation of the Power Released Power!) 

Think where would this crippled man be if Peter had only prayed but not acted by taking the man's hand?
