Here is the teaching outline for SUNDAY NITE LIVE.
Every believer needs to manifest devil-chasing, debt-cancelling, bondage-breaking, yoke-destroying, mountain-moving, world-changing wealth-accumulating and ever-increasing faith. Here are seven keys to building your faith.
“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
1. Expand your boundaries. . .geographically and mentally.
“Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.”
1 Chronicles 4:9-10 NLT
“There was a man named Jabez who was more honorable than any of his brothers. His mother named him Jabez because his birth had been so painful. 10 He was the one who prayed to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and expand my territory! Please be with me in all that I do, and keep me from all trouble and pain!” And God granted him his request.”
Psalm 119:32 NLT
“I will pursue your commands,for you expand my understanding.”
“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”
Proverbs 4:23 NLT
“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.”
2. Elevate your conversation to a higher spiritual and success level.
Ephesians 4:29 AMP
“Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk [ever] come out of your mouth, but only such [speech] as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace (God's favor) to those who hear it.”
3. Expect divine appointments and supernatural connections every day.
1 Samuel 9:15-16 MSG
“The very day before, God had confided in Samuel, "This time tomorrow, I'm sending a man from the land of Benjamin to meet you. You're to anoint him as prince over my people Israel. He will free my people from Philistine oppression. Yes, I know all about their hard circumstances. I've heard their cries for help."
“But the Lord was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.”
“Father, I thank you that the irresistible charm of Jesus will flow through me. . .giving me supernatural favor with every co-worker, supervisor. . .and yes, with every person who can help me facilitate my goals for this year and my calling in life. In the strong name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.”
4. Develop a spiritual awareness of who you’re working for and how that relates to your goals.
First, you should get Colossians 3:17, 23 down in your spirit.
“17And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”
“23And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.”
Second, you must realize that everything you do on the job. . .you are doing as unto the Lord. He’s the one who will cover your employee evaluation.
Third, you must give your job to God. . .so He can deal with difficult supervisors and a lack of promotions, bonuses or benefits.
5. Energize your faith for a job or better job with action.
1. What can I do today to increase my value in the marketplace by sharpening my skill set?
2. Who should I call? Make a list of people you think can help increase your aptitude and attitude in the marketplace. Spend time with them.
3. Use the 7/11 formula for success. Pray seven days a week for at least eleven minutes each time.
4. Never go on an interview without praying.
5. Work on your resume.
6. Get up at your normal time….dress for work. . .do the things you would normally do when you were still on the job.
7. Visit appropriate websites…job placement sites. . .staffing sites. . .classified ad listings in newspapers.
“There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.”
“And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.”
6. Establish family time that is written in stone.
7. Energize your faith.
Galatians 5:6 AMP
“For [if we are] in Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith activated and energized and expressed and working through love.”
7 ways to energize your faith on a regular basis.
First, begin the day with Him.
“I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.”
Second, get the Word of God deeply into your innermost being.
Matthew 12:34 AMO
“…For out of the fullness (the overflow, the superabundance) of the heart the mouth speaks.”
Third, speak only the pure, the powerful and the positive from the Word of God even in the midst of adversity and trial.
Fourth, spend as much time as possible with people of like precious faith.
Proverbs 13:20 MSG
“Become wise by walking with the wise; hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces.”
Fifth, overcome attacks of the enemy by testifying of the things God is doing in and through your life.
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
Sixth, keep your eyes off your circumstances and on the Word of God.
Psalm 34:6-7 MSG
“When I was desperate, I called out, and God got me out of a tight spot. God's angel sets up a circle of protection around us while we pray.”
Seventh, never lose sight of your goals or His promises to you.
Philippians 3:15-16 MSG
“So let's keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision—you'll see it yet! Now that we're on the right track, let's stay on it.”
