  • -LEON FONTAINE: When you speakGod's Word, it must impact what
  • 00:00:37.787 --> 00:00:42.325
  • you see, what you feel, what youdream, what you envision.
  • 00:00:42.358 --> 00:00:47.530
  • -ANNOUNCER: In John 10:10, itsays that Jesus came to give us
  • 00:00:48.832 --> 00:00:51.568
  • life, and life more abundantly.So, why is there such a
  • 00:00:51.601 --> 00:00:55.171
  • disconnect between this biblicalpromise, and how most Christians
  • 00:00:55.205 --> 00:00:58.908
  • live today? Why have so manybelievers become spiritually
  • 00:00:58.942 --> 00:01:02.479
  • weak, and ineffective at sharingJesus' message of love? THE
  • 00:01:02.512 --> 00:01:06.950
  • SPIRIT CONTEMPORARY LIFE is theanswer. It's being led by Holy
  • 00:01:06.983 --> 00:01:11.121
  • Spirit, but in a contemporaryway. It's being Jesus and
  • 00:01:11.154 --> 00:01:15.024
  • demonstrating His love in wayspeople can understand and
  • 00:01:15.058 --> 00:01:18.528
  • appreciate. Spirit Contemporaryis unique for everyone. It never
  • 00:01:18.561 --> 00:01:22.999
  • compromises the truth, and itnever makes others feel
  • 00:01:23.032 --> 00:01:25.969
  • uncomfortable. It's freeingyourself from religious
  • 00:01:26.002 --> 00:01:28.638
  • constraints, and walking freelyin God's amazing grace, for His
  • 00:01:28.671 --> 00:01:32.675
  • purpose. THE SPIRIT CONTEMPORARYLIFE is absolutely crucial if
  • 00:01:32.709 --> 00:01:36.646
  • the global church and her peopleare going to change the world.
  • 00:01:36.679 --> 00:01:40.250
  • - Later in the show, we'll tellyou how you can reserve your

  • copy of today's resource.
  • 00:01:43.253 --> 00:01:44.787
  • - And now, from Calgary,Canada, pastor Leon Fontaine.
  • 00:01:49.259 --> 00:01:52.929
  • -LEON: Hey, everybody. Welcome!It's so good to have you with
  • 00:01:54.898 --> 00:01:57.000
  • me. I've been working on aBeliever's Healing Kit and just
  • 00:01:57.033 --> 00:02:00.403
  • helping believers to understandhow to walk in supernatural
  • 00:02:00.436 --> 00:02:04.574
  • health, to receive incrediblemiracles when you need them, not
  • 00:02:04.607 --> 00:02:08.344
  • as once in a blue moon but as aregular flow in your life. And
  • 00:02:08.378 --> 00:02:12.949
  • so we've covered two topicsalready. How do we know God's
  • 00:02:12.982 --> 00:02:16.553
  • will, and then what is newcovenant faith? What is it
  • 00:02:16.586 --> 00:02:19.989
  • anchored in? Because it'sanchored differently and I
  • 00:02:20.023 --> 00:02:22.892
  • shared a couple other ways thatMatthew, Mark, Luke, and John
  • 00:02:22.926 --> 00:02:26.396
  • faith is anchored, and then theOld Testament faith was
  • 00:02:26.429 --> 00:02:28.398
  • anchored. But this is newcovenant faith and I see a real
  • 00:02:28.431 --> 00:02:31.067
  • difference as I look into God'sWord. So we've talked about
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:34.103
  • God's will. We've talked aboutfaith. And now I want to
  • 00:02:34.137 --> 00:02:37.173
  • introduce you the word, grace.The word grace in the Bible. You
  • 00:02:37.207 --> 00:02:41.945
  • know, grace is an amazing word.Most people, now today's word
  • 00:02:41.978 --> 00:02:45.815
  • grace is not accurate as to whatBible grace means. Now, most
  • 00:02:45.848 --> 00:02:53.289
  • people today, "Ah, give him somegrace." It means let him mess up
  • 00:02:53.323 --> 00:02:57.727
  • and you'll still forgive him.That's actually mercy in the
  • 00:02:57.760 --> 00:03:00.997
  • Bible. When someone's messing upand not doing well. Ah, give him
  • 00:03:01.030 --> 00:03:04.367
  • some grace. Now, that's actuallymercy. Grace in the Bible, okay.
  • 00:03:04.400 --> 00:03:08.471
  • This word grace, it isundeserved favor is what -, It
  • 00:03:08.504 --> 00:03:14.711
  • says when you look up the word.And so people think that grace
  • 00:03:14.744 --> 00:03:17.513
  • is undeserved favor. Okay, but Ican take another step further
  • 00:03:17.547 --> 00:03:20.450
  • and go, "Well, what is theundeserved favor?" Well, the
  • 00:03:20.483 --> 00:03:24.754
  • undeserved favor that you get isrighteousness because of Jesus,
  • 00:03:24.787 --> 00:03:30.360
  • become born again because ofHim, and so grace isn't just
  • 00:03:30.393 --> 00:03:36.165
  • putting up with you. Grace isthe power of God, the strength
  • 00:03:36.199 --> 00:03:41.004
  • of God. Grace is the ability ofGod. And so when you talk about,
  • 00:03:41.037 --> 00:03:46.376
  • you know, faith is not thepower. Faith is this confident
  • 00:03:46.409 --> 00:03:50.280
  • expectation. It's this confidentknowing that it's yours. But now
  • 00:03:50.313 --> 00:03:55.118
  • grace, grace when you begin tobelieve in it, it just flows
  • 00:03:55.151 --> 00:04:00.590
  • naturally, easy. It's somethingthat is amazing. And so when we
  • 00:04:00.623 --> 00:04:06.296
  • look at grace, we have tounderstand like in Ephesians 2.
  • 00:04:06.329 --> 00:04:10.166
  • It says there that by grace areyou saved. So this salvation.
  • 00:04:10.199 --> 00:04:13.736
  • This powerful rebirth is donethrough grace. This ability of
  • 00:04:13.770 --> 00:04:18.675
  • God comes and renews you. Theold you dies. You become alive
  • 00:04:18.708 --> 00:04:26.349
  • spiritually. It's grace. Butgrace doesn't work unless you
  • 00:04:26.382 --> 00:04:32.088
  • believe in it. Grace doesn'tflow unless you believe the
  • 00:04:32.121 --> 00:04:37.560
  • Gospel, the Good News. Mostchurches today that I talk with
  • 00:04:37.593 --> 00:04:42.432
  • no longer have good news. It'sbad news. And they just preach
  • 00:04:42.465 --> 00:04:45.702
  • bad news, bad news, bad news,bad news, bad news. And they say
  • 00:04:45.735 --> 00:04:48.604
  • preach this bad news. Peoplestruggle to believe. But the
  • 00:04:48.638 --> 00:04:52.308
  • Gospel is good news. And thisgood news is that salvation is a
  • 00:04:52.342 --> 00:04:58.281
  • gift. That you are going to berighteous, healed, protected,
  • 00:04:58.314 --> 00:05:02.552
  • peaceful, healthy, whole, andenjoying Jesus, okay, with no
  • 00:05:02.585 --> 00:05:08.424
  • barriers because Jesus made theway. Jesus qualified you. And
  • 00:05:08.458 --> 00:05:13.796
  • because of that, this ability ofGod, okay. He's in you. In fact,
  • 00:05:13.830 --> 00:05:20.603
  • these words that help me getthrough. I speak for hours on
  • 00:05:20.636 --> 00:05:23.106
  • this but He's within you. Andthis grace just flows
  • 00:05:23.139 --> 00:05:27.310
  • effortlessly out of you. It willheal physical bodies, stop a
  • 00:05:27.343 --> 00:05:31.514
  • horrible accident. I don't careif it's 40 tons of steel coming
  • 00:05:31.547 --> 00:05:34.784
  • at you. When you believe inGod's protection, your faith.
  • 00:05:34.817 --> 00:05:39.689
  • Okay, it's faith believes andtrust in the finished work of
  • 00:05:39.722 --> 00:05:44.093
  • the cross and then grace justflows to fulfill all of His
  • 00:05:44.127 --> 00:05:48.498
  • promises. And so the favor ofGod is upon your life. And I
  • 00:05:48.531 --> 00:05:53.536
  • love declaring that every day.That because of Jesus, God's
  • 00:05:53.569 --> 00:05:57.240
  • favor is on me. Things I don'tknow about. Things I can't pray
  • 00:05:57.273 --> 00:06:01.344
  • about. You know, when I begin tounderstand this, things I never
  • 00:06:01.377 --> 00:06:04.714
  • prayed about just started cominginto my life. You know, this was
  • 00:06:04.747 --> 00:06:08.017
  • hand -, I never even prayedabout getting an entire
  • 00:06:08.050 --> 00:06:11.854
  • Christian station. You know,just given to me. Well, I've
  • 00:06:11.888 --> 00:06:15.258
  • never even prayed about it. No,it's just the favor of God. Take
  • 00:06:15.291 --> 00:06:18.761
  • this and let's go touch theworld with it. And I could share
  • 00:06:18.795 --> 00:06:21.063
  • story after story after story ofthings I never prayed about,
  • 00:06:21.097 --> 00:06:23.900
  • never spoke about, never eventhought about. But I love
  • 00:06:23.933 --> 00:06:27.170
  • praying on a regular basis.Thank You that the favor of God
  • 00:06:27.203 --> 00:06:30.740
  • is on my life. The favor of Godis on my marriage. The favor of
  • 00:06:30.773 --> 00:06:34.477
  • God is on my family, on my home,on my kids. It's on my
  • 00:06:34.510 --> 00:06:37.847
  • generations. It's on SpringsChurch, MIRACLE CHANNEL. It's on
  • 00:06:37.880 --> 00:06:41.517
  • Springs Christian Academy. It'son all those around us. The
  • 00:06:41.551 --> 00:06:44.787
  • favor of God is mine. And what'sbeautiful is so many people are
  • 00:06:44.821 --> 00:06:49.158
  • intensely praying trying torelease their faith as though
  • 00:06:49.192 --> 00:06:52.929
  • it's the power. No, it's thisfaith is trusting the finished
  • 00:06:52.962 --> 00:06:57.767
  • work of Jesus. And because ofthat, the grace of God. It's
  • 00:06:57.800 --> 00:07:03.739
  • this undeserved favor. You know,if I was to say to you, "Hey,
  • 00:07:03.773 --> 00:07:08.110
  • I'm going to do you a favor."Now, the word favor means
  • 00:07:08.144 --> 00:07:12.448
  • unearned, okay? Say, "Hey, I'mgoing to do you a favor." Your
  • 00:07:12.482 --> 00:07:16.185
  • next question could be, "Well,what's the favor?" Yes, I'm
  • 00:07:16.219 --> 00:07:20.456
  • going to do you a favor. What'sthe favor, Leon? Oh, I'm going
  • 00:07:20.490 --> 00:07:23.359
  • to give you a favor. What? Andthat's where people have not
  • 00:07:23.392 --> 00:07:27.129
  • thought past grace. Well, ifgrace is God's undeserved favor.
  • 00:07:27.163 --> 00:07:32.301
  • What? It's His ability in everyarea of your life. Your
  • 00:07:32.335 --> 00:07:35.972
  • emotions. Your mind. Your bodyand health. Your relationships.
  • 00:07:36.005 --> 00:07:42.945
  • You know, the jobs, yourcareers. Your knowing Him. You
  • 00:07:42.979 --> 00:07:47.917
  • just pick an area on thisplanet. Anything that pertains
  • 00:07:47.950 --> 00:07:51.153
  • to life is what He said is allgiven to you. What? It says that
  • 00:07:51.187 --> 00:07:55.191
  • He's -, All things are given tous already. They're within me. I
  • 00:07:55.224 --> 00:07:59.962
  • no longer. If the Bible saysthis is a promise from God, then
  • 00:07:59.996 --> 00:08:05.101
  • Jesus has qualified me for it.Now, this grace. This is really
  • 00:08:05.134 --> 00:08:10.506
  • important you understand thisbecause this is number three.
  • 00:08:10.540 --> 00:08:12.808
  • This is the third area thatpeople need to understand is
  • 00:08:12.842 --> 00:08:15.545
  • this grace. This grace, okay,comes when you begin to believe
  • 00:08:15.578 --> 00:08:20.583
  • at the heart level. We've talkedabout faith. Now, the Bible
  • 00:08:20.616 --> 00:08:24.620
  • talks a lot about believing fromthe heart. Now, the heart is
  • 00:08:24.654 --> 00:08:29.425
  • this deeper part of yourbelieving. You know, the Bible
  • 00:08:29.458 --> 00:08:32.662
  • says in Proverbs 23:7, as a manthinks in his heart, so he is.
  • 00:08:32.695 --> 00:08:39.302
  • If a man believes he's healed atthe heart level, he just gets
  • 00:08:39.335 --> 00:08:43.439
  • healed. If he believes at thehead level, it just means
  • 00:08:43.472 --> 00:08:46.108
  • nothing. Okay? It's a start. Butuntil it gets into the heart.
  • 00:08:46.142 --> 00:08:50.112
  • And here's where a lot ofChristian struggle with faith
  • 00:08:50.146 --> 00:08:53.716
  • and God's grace and the heart.Is that God's Word, you meditate
  • 00:08:53.749 --> 00:08:57.820
  • on it and you need to begin tosee His Word done. And His Word
  • 00:08:57.853 --> 00:09:02.592
  • is -, In other words, forexample if I say, "I can do all
  • 00:09:02.625 --> 00:09:06.596
  • things through Christ whostrengthens me." Cool! That's a
  • 00:09:06.629 --> 00:09:09.632
  • great verse. Yeah. So where areyou believing that? What do you
  • 00:09:09.665 --> 00:09:15.371
  • mean? I'm just quoting, "I cando all things through Christ who
  • 00:09:15.404 --> 00:09:17.773
  • strengthen me." When you speakGod's Word, it must impact what
  • 00:09:17.807 --> 00:09:23.212
  • you see, what you feel, what youdream, what you envision. When
  • 00:09:23.245 --> 00:09:28.884
  • you begin to speak the Word ofGod, okay? So, then if I was to
  • 00:09:28.918 --> 00:09:33.222
  • say, "I can do all thingsthrough Christ who strengthens
  • 00:09:33.255 --> 00:09:35.558
  • me." If you're afraid of publicspeaking and yet you know you
  • 00:09:35.591 --> 00:09:38.894
  • want to go teach kids forexample. And you're confessing I
  • 00:09:38.928 --> 00:09:42.031
  • can do all things through Christwho strengthens me. As you speak
  • 00:09:42.064 --> 00:09:45.301
  • that, you must meditate on it,okay? And as you meditate the
  • 00:09:45.334 --> 00:09:50.906
  • Word of God begins to buildimages within you. The Bible
  • 00:09:50.940 --> 00:09:54.977
  • says that I'm not moved by whatI see. While we look not at the
  • 00:09:55.011 --> 00:10:00.650
  • things that are seen but at thethings that are not seen. So
  • 00:10:00.683 --> 00:10:08.024
  • what are you looking at that isnot seen in the physical world?
  • 00:10:08.057 --> 00:10:11.694
  • It's what God's Word promises.See that promise as done. And as
  • 00:10:11.727 --> 00:10:16.565
  • I begin to confess that I can doall things through Christ who
  • 00:10:16.599 --> 00:10:20.236
  • strengthens me. As I pray thatand confess that and just
  • 00:10:20.269 --> 00:10:24.173
  • meditate on that each morning. Isee myself standing before kids
  • 00:10:24.206 --> 00:10:27.610
  • confidently laughing, themenjoying me speaking. Because
  • 00:10:27.643 --> 00:10:32.048
  • the Bibles says Holy Spirit, andthis is Jesus teachings in the
  • 00:10:32.081 --> 00:10:36.552
  • book of John, will show youthings to come. He takes the
  • 00:10:36.585 --> 00:10:41.290
  • Word and He begins to reveal itto us. We begin to dream and
  • 00:10:41.323 --> 00:10:44.960
  • have visions and yourimagination is involved here. As
  • 00:10:44.994 --> 00:10:48.631
  • I begin to see myself teachingchildren. If that was what I
  • 00:10:48.664 --> 00:10:50.866
  • believed I want to do, but I'vegot too much fear. So just to
  • 00:10:50.900 --> 00:10:55.037
  • confess, I can do all thingsthrough Christ who strengthens
  • 00:10:55.071 --> 00:10:57.006
  • me isn't enough. Every versethat you pray and meditate
  • 00:10:57.039 --> 00:11:01.811
  • should bring to you a vision ofthis miracle done, completed,
  • 00:11:01.844 --> 00:11:07.583
  • finished. And then, you're goingto find that it drops into this
  • 00:11:07.616 --> 00:11:11.620
  • heart and it now becomes a heartbelief. And everything that you
  • 00:11:11.654 --> 00:11:15.157
  • believe at the heart level, isan identity belief. For example,
  • 00:11:15.191 --> 00:11:20.663
  • when I was going to be a seniorpastor, I've never been a senior
  • 00:11:20.696 --> 00:11:23.566
  • pastor. I've only been anassociate pastor. When God
  • 00:11:23.599 --> 00:11:26.435
  • called me to do that, I began topray about it. And I began to
  • 00:11:26.469 --> 00:11:30.473
  • see myself in this identity isI'm a senior pastor. It wasn't
  • 00:11:30.506 --> 00:11:36.245
  • just can I do it? Am I that? Soyour identity which, you know,
  • 00:11:36.278 --> 00:11:41.317
  • is always focused on God, notyour gifts, not your possession.
  • 00:11:41.350 --> 00:11:44.754
  • It's focused on God. Then what Ibelieve has to come from the
  • 00:11:44.787 --> 00:11:49.825
  • heart. And so heart beliefs,they come from repetition and
  • 00:11:49.859 --> 00:11:53.763
  • high emotion. It comes frommeditation. And so this heart
  • 00:11:53.796 --> 00:11:57.833
  • beliefs are crucial. And if youdon't spend time in God's Word.
  • 00:11:57.867 --> 00:12:00.536
  • You don't go to a life-givingchurch. You just, you know, pray
  • 00:12:00.569 --> 00:12:03.305
  • the kiddie prayers. Oh, God, Ineed this. You know, you don't
  • 00:12:03.339 --> 00:12:06.542
  • understand as a believer. TheBible says that we must
  • 00:12:06.575 --> 00:12:11.113
  • literally labor to enter therest, labor to know the truth of
  • 00:12:11.147 --> 00:12:15.317
  • the Gospel, labor to see Jesusand what He has done, labor to
  • 00:12:15.351 --> 00:12:19.822
  • renew your mind. And there willbe a rest and a peace that God's
  • 00:12:19.855 --> 00:12:24.493
  • grace effortlessly heals you,protects you, prospers you,
  • 00:12:24.527 --> 00:12:28.430
  • touches every relationship, yourfamily. Jesus said My yoke is
  • 00:12:28.464 --> 00:12:33.636
  • easy and My burden is light. ButHe is talking about a believer
  • 00:12:33.669 --> 00:12:38.541
  • following Him and what youbelieve is at this heart level.
  • 00:12:38.574 --> 00:12:43.646
  • This deeper level. How do youknow if you believe it from the
  • 00:12:43.679 --> 00:12:47.449
  • heart? When you believe it fromthe heart, it produces the life
  • 00:12:47.483 --> 00:12:52.254
  • of Christ. This grace just flowsfreely. So, you hear God's Word.
  • 00:12:52.288 --> 00:12:58.494
  • You learn what His will is thatrenews your mind. It begins to
  • 00:12:58.527 --> 00:13:02.798
  • grow faith. How? By showing anddropping into your heart, and
  • 00:13:02.832 --> 00:13:06.969
  • your heart begins to take HisWord and see it, imagine it,
  • 00:13:07.002 --> 00:13:10.906
  • prophesy it, dream it, envisionit. Now, this Word that is alive
  • 00:13:10.940 --> 00:13:16.245
  • is causing you to see. And inyour prayer time, it's more
  • 00:13:16.278 --> 00:13:19.448
  • powerful than even what you seein your physical world. And now,
  • 00:13:19.481 --> 00:13:23.853
  • you're in an incredible place asyou are, the grace of God begins
  • 00:13:23.886 --> 00:13:28.357
  • to flow and to heal you. So thisheart. Heart is the autopilot of
  • 00:13:28.390 --> 00:13:33.762
  • your life. If you have anegative belief in your heart
  • 00:13:33.796 --> 00:13:36.832
  • that, "Yeah, you know, moneydoesn't grow on trees." And
  • 00:13:36.866 --> 00:13:40.169
  • you're continually praying andconfessing you're going to
  • 00:13:40.202 --> 00:13:42.838
  • prosper but you never deal withthis heart beliefs. You can pray
  • 00:13:42.872 --> 00:13:47.610
  • all you want, confess all youwant, and you'll never get
  • 00:13:47.643 --> 00:13:50.279
  • anywhere because God's Wordtalks about believing from the
  • 00:13:50.312 --> 00:13:54.049
  • heart. Don't you doubt in theheart. Doubt will go in and out
  • 00:13:54.083 --> 00:13:57.653
  • of our mind. But when this doubttouches your heart, the Bible
  • 00:13:57.686 --> 00:14:00.923
  • teaches us in Mark 11 that youcan speak to mountains but don't
  • 00:14:00.956 --> 00:14:04.426
  • doubt in your heart. So anymisbeliefs and all of us have
  • 00:14:04.460 --> 00:14:08.631
  • them from growing up because ourparents are the ones who taught
  • 00:14:08.664 --> 00:14:11.467
  • us the beliefs of our heart. Youknow, that God's Word got to
  • 00:14:11.500 --> 00:14:15.371
  • come in and through meditationand the work of Holy Spirit.
  • 00:14:15.404 --> 00:14:18.207
  • He'll transform you. Not changeyou, transform you and then you
  • 00:14:18.240 --> 00:14:22.578
  • believe so beautifully, soeffortlessly. You know, as we
  • 00:14:22.611 --> 00:14:25.948
  • talk about the heart, now let'stalk about praying God's Word.
  • 00:14:25.981 --> 00:14:29.652
  • You see, prayer most peoplethink is asking God for
  • 00:14:29.685 --> 00:14:32.788
  • something and God making achoice. Should I? Shouldn't I?
  • 00:14:32.821 --> 00:14:35.491
  • Should I ask the angels? Hey,should we give Leon this?
  • 00:14:35.524 --> 00:14:39.228
  • Actually, God is not decidingmost prayer. God has already
  • 00:14:39.261 --> 00:14:44.466
  • decided. So when you go to Godwith and ask Him but in a way
  • 00:14:44.500 --> 00:14:49.204
  • that thinks He might say no, Hemight say yes. You're not in
  • 00:14:49.238 --> 00:14:52.808
  • faith. Now, it says to ask. Butto me it's like asking around
  • 00:14:52.841 --> 00:14:56.979
  • the table. If I got all my kidsaround the table and I say,
  • 00:14:57.012 --> 00:14:59.181
  • "Hey, you know, Sally pass methe potatoes." I'm not asking
  • 00:14:59.214 --> 00:15:03.619
  • her to, she has the right to sayno. We all know that it is a
  • 00:15:03.652 --> 00:15:08.691
  • done deal. That everyone sharesthe food, you know, and we just
  • 00:15:08.724 --> 00:15:12.194
  • pass it around as we ask. So youcan ask God or even the word
  • 00:15:12.227 --> 00:15:15.564
  • declare is within that sameword. So we need as we pray, we
  • 00:15:15.597 --> 00:15:20.502
  • need to pray in a way that it'sthanking God for what Jesus has
  • 00:15:20.536 --> 00:15:24.707
  • done. In fact, it's pretty rarethat I'm begging and pleading.
  • 00:15:24.740 --> 00:15:28.711
  • Well, I mean, I don't beg andplead with God for almost
  • 00:15:28.744 --> 00:15:30.779
  • anything. Oh, I know. What I dois I take His Word. I prayed it
  • 00:15:30.813 --> 00:15:35.451
  • out loud, "And I thank You,Jesus that my body is the temple
  • 00:15:35.484 --> 00:15:38.620
  • of the Holy Spirit. I thank You,that Jesus is the person who has
  • 00:15:38.654 --> 00:15:43.926
  • given me the gift ofrighteousness. That every
  • 00:15:43.959 --> 00:15:46.061
  • promise is mine because Jesusqualified me for it." See,
  • 00:15:46.095 --> 00:15:49.531
  • everything I've studied in theWord begins to come out my
  • 00:15:49.565 --> 00:15:51.934
  • mouth. And as you begin to speakit, you're praying the Word.
  • 00:15:51.967 --> 00:15:55.437
  • Prayer is not a monologue. It'sa dialogue. And the majority of
  • 00:15:55.471 --> 00:16:00.109
  • prayer and most of the men andwomen I know who walk in the
  • 00:16:00.142 --> 00:16:03.112
  • power of God, when I ask themabout their prayer life, they're
  • 00:16:03.145 --> 00:16:06.382
  • not praying to pull down demonicforces. They're not praying to
  • 00:16:06.415 --> 00:16:10.853
  • breakthrough skies of brass.They're not praying to get God
  • 00:16:10.886 --> 00:16:15.424
  • to move. They're not praying todestroy the devil. All of that
  • 00:16:15.457 --> 00:16:19.962
  • has been done. Jesus did that.What they're doing is in this
  • 00:16:19.995 --> 00:16:23.699
  • abundance of thankfulness.They're just praising God and
  • 00:16:23.732 --> 00:16:28.404
  • speaking God's Word. I thank Youthat Springs Church in Calgary.
  • 00:16:28.437 --> 00:16:32.441
  • If I pray over that SpringsChurch, that the Word of God
  • 00:16:32.474 --> 00:16:35.644
  • flows. That the wisdom of God istouching. If from the north to
  • 00:16:35.677 --> 00:16:38.881
  • south, the east and the west,they're lining up to come in
  • 00:16:38.914 --> 00:16:41.316
  • those doors getting healed,getting saved. I just declare
  • 00:16:41.350 --> 00:16:44.686
  • God's Word. Father, thank Youfor guiding me and leading me.
  • 00:16:44.720 --> 00:16:47.756
  • I'm just praying the Word ofGod. I'm praying the promises of
  • 00:16:47.790 --> 00:16:50.826
  • God. I'm often praying whatJesus did on the cross and these
  • 00:16:50.859 --> 00:16:55.164
  • prayers are just amazing. And soas we look at what are the five
  • 00:16:55.197 --> 00:17:01.637
  • things that are so crucial. Allright, the first one that we
  • 00:17:01.670 --> 00:17:04.506
  • talked about is God's will. Idon't know what God's will is,
  • 00:17:04.540 --> 00:17:09.078
  • and then spend time in that.Which is what Jesus has done on
  • 00:17:09.111 --> 00:17:12.281
  • the cross and beyond. And thenas you find out God's will
  • 00:17:12.314 --> 00:17:16.985
  • through the Word, you begin tobelieve. Faith rises up. Now,
  • 00:17:17.019 --> 00:17:21.123
  • this faith is in God's grace.That it's already done. And
  • 00:17:21.156 --> 00:17:26.528
  • grace is God's ability. God'swill, then faith number two,
  • 00:17:26.562 --> 00:17:31.767
  • then God's grace, unearnedfavor. You can't earn it by
  • 00:17:31.800 --> 00:17:36.738
  • being better, acting better. Youcan't earn it by doing any great
  • 00:17:36.772 --> 00:17:40.109
  • thing. You can't do a thing.This grace is a gift.
  • 00:17:40.142 --> 00:17:44.113
  • Righteousness is a gift. Hisgrace is the power that flows
  • 00:17:44.146 --> 00:17:48.917
  • out of your recreated spirit.It's not in heaven somewhere.
  • 00:17:48.951 --> 00:17:52.654
  • Way up there God, help me. Asthough the power of God is
  • 00:17:52.688 --> 00:17:56.558
  • flowing from heaven. No, He'salready flowed from heaven and
  • 00:17:56.592 --> 00:17:59.394
  • He's within you if you've givenyour life to Christ. And so then
  • 00:17:59.428 --> 00:18:03.432
  • this grace as you believe fromthe heart begins to just flow
  • 00:18:03.465 --> 00:18:07.636
  • easily and effortlessly andhealed bodies. And so what do
  • 00:18:07.669 --> 00:18:11.974
  • you do? You just begin to prayand thank Him. When you study
  • 00:18:12.007 --> 00:18:14.676
  • His Word, look at these areas.So we talk about God's will.
  • 00:18:14.710 --> 00:18:18.914
  • Then we talk about new covenantfaith. Then we talk about grace.
  • 00:18:18.947 --> 00:18:24.019
  • God's ability coming to usunearned, that affects every
  • 00:18:24.052 --> 00:18:28.924
  • area of our life. That everypromise that Jesus has qualified
  • 00:18:28.957 --> 00:18:33.729
  • us, for us, is now ours. Thatthe heart is the place that we
  • 00:18:33.762 --> 00:18:37.366
  • believe from and that is wherewe see God's Word and Holy
  • 00:18:37.399 --> 00:18:41.303
  • Spirit helps us. He shows usthings to come the Bible says.
  • 00:18:41.336 --> 00:18:46.241
  • And Jesus teaches us that in thebook of John. That Holy Spirit
  • 00:18:46.275 --> 00:18:50.913
  • will guide us into all truth.And then once you find that
  • 00:18:50.946 --> 00:18:55.384
  • truth, He'll show you things tocome in your future, health,
  • 00:18:55.417 --> 00:18:59.488
  • healing. All of these beautifulthings. That's what He's going
  • 00:18:59.521 --> 00:19:03.225
  • to do as you and Him in theWord. And then we've talked
  • 00:19:03.258 --> 00:19:08.063
  • about prayer. So we've got God'swill. Then we've got faith. Then
  • 00:19:08.096 --> 00:19:12.634
  • we've got grace. Then we've gotthe heart, because the heart is
  • 00:19:12.668 --> 00:19:17.306
  • the autopilot. It is the controlcenter of all that happens in
  • 00:19:17.339 --> 00:19:21.743
  • your life negatively orpositively. It's the heart that
  • 00:19:21.777 --> 00:19:25.447
  • is attracting the negative orattracting the positive. The
  • 00:19:25.480 --> 00:19:28.417
  • heart according to Jesus'teaching in Mark 4. It says
  • 00:19:28.450 --> 00:19:32.254
  • there that whatever is sown inthe ground, the ground grows.
  • 00:19:32.287 --> 00:19:35.424
  • And it says there in Mark 4 thatyour heart is the soil. So if
  • 00:19:35.457 --> 00:19:39.228
  • you allow, if you don't protectyour heart and it sown with
  • 00:19:39.261 --> 00:19:42.965
  • bitterness and unhappiness andtruths that are wrong. Even
  • 00:19:42.998 --> 00:19:46.134
  • Bible truths that someone saysare but they're not right.
  • 00:19:46.168 --> 00:19:48.604
  • They're misbeliefs. You'replanting them in your heart and
  • 00:19:48.637 --> 00:19:51.506
  • you're growing out thorns andthistles or choking out the
  • 00:19:51.540 --> 00:19:54.209
  • promises of God. So this heartis crucial and then prayer. Pray
  • 00:19:54.243 --> 00:19:59.548
  • God's Word. Pray, and especiallywhen you understand since the
  • 00:19:59.581 --> 00:20:04.286
  • cross. Everything you ever readin Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John
  • 00:20:04.319 --> 00:20:07.756
  • and in the Old Testament must betaken with the cross in mind.
  • 00:20:07.789 --> 00:20:12.261
  • Now, has the cross changedanything here? And then you can
  • 00:20:12.294 --> 00:20:16.531
  • take all of this beautifulteaching before the cross and
  • 00:20:16.565 --> 00:20:19.501
  • recognize how it apply to us nowas a new covenant believer. And
  • 00:20:19.534 --> 00:20:25.841
  • as you pray God's Word, this isa powerful thing because as you,
  • 00:20:25.874 --> 00:20:29.845
  • and pray out loud. You know, theBible says in James 3 that our
  • 00:20:29.878 --> 00:20:34.883
  • mouth controls our life. Like abit in a horse's mouth in James
  • 00:20:34.916 --> 00:20:39.521
  • 3:2 and on, controls the body ofa thousand to two thousand pound
  • 00:20:39.554 --> 00:20:43.859
  • horse. Like the rudder on a shipthat takes a huge ship in a
  • 00:20:43.892 --> 00:20:47.996
  • storm. The storm doesn't decidewhere the ship goes. The rudder
  • 00:20:48.030 --> 00:20:51.566
  • guides that ship. That's yourmouth. Now, we need to be
  • 00:20:51.600 --> 00:20:55.604
  • praying God's Word every day.Singing His Word, enjoying His
  • 00:20:55.637 --> 00:20:59.808
  • Word. I love reading His Word.There is something about. Prayer
  • 00:20:59.841 --> 00:21:04.579
  • is praying God's Word. Prayingin a faith way. That it's done.
  • 00:21:04.613 --> 00:21:09.184
  • Thanking Him in advance. Thisoverflow of thankfulness as you
  • 00:21:09.217 --> 00:21:13.088
  • believe for a child that needs amiracle. That Father, Your Word
  • 00:21:13.121 --> 00:21:16.558
  • says You already paid for thatdisease and it's got no right.
  • 00:21:16.591 --> 00:21:19.895
  • And that His healing isfinished, and it was finished
  • 00:21:19.928 --> 00:21:22.431
  • and decided 2.000 years ago.He's healed. And you're praying
  • 00:21:22.464 --> 00:21:26.068
  • from a possession of strength.Just thanking Him that my
  • 00:21:26.101 --> 00:21:29.004
  • children walk in health and instrength, and you stay there. So
  • 00:21:29.037 --> 00:21:32.607
  • this prayer is always a thankfulprayer. It is always this prayer
  • 00:21:32.641 --> 00:21:38.213
  • of thanking Him for the finishedwork of Jesus and that every
  • 00:21:38.246 --> 00:21:42.217
  • promise is mine. And prayingthese promises. I thank You my
  • 00:21:42.250 --> 00:21:45.787
  • youth is renewed like theeagles. This body is healthy and
  • 00:21:45.821 --> 00:21:48.990
  • whole. Every organ, all myblood, my immune system,
  • 00:21:49.024 --> 00:21:52.928
  • everything. My skin. I thank Youmy youth is renewed like the
  • 00:21:52.961 --> 00:21:57.032
  • eagles. It's a promise Jesusqualified me for. I thank You
  • 00:21:57.065 --> 00:22:00.969
  • that a thousand will fall at myside, ten thousand on my right
  • 00:22:01.002 --> 00:22:04.072
  • hand but it's not coming nearme. That's a promise and Jesus

  • in Psalm 100, enter His gateswith thanksgiving and into His
  • 00:22:43.578 --> 00:22:46.848

  • you thank Him. And the Biblesays where the presence of the
  • 00:22:50.552 --> 00:22:53.088
  • Lord is, there is liberty. Howdo you begin to see that
  • 00:22:53.121 --> 00:22:56.324

  • 00:22:56.358 --> 00:22:59.394
  • done. It is done. It is mine andI am praising You for Him. And
  • 00:22:59.428 --> 00:23:02.998
  • I'm telling you the presence ofGod is flowing here. And
  • 00:23:03.031 --> 00:23:06.668
  • wherever the presence of theLord is, there's freedom from
  • 00:23:06.701 --> 00:23:09.337
  • disease and sickness, fromcapture, from early death, from
  • 00:23:09.371 --> 00:23:13.141
