The Word of the Amen
Amen means “So be it”……and only God can speak and it is done.
All of us can only say…..”amen” after Him…..or say, “If God wills”. (James 4:13-15)
So we need to hear the Word of the Lord, if we want to have what He has for us.
Matthew 7:7-8 “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”
Now, is what you are asking for, according to His will?
Well, if it is….then it rests with the Amen God.
(There are times when what we ask for, is right before us.
But we refuse to see it because it is not what we think it ought to be….or the way it ought to be.
Are we receiving His Word to us?)
Then we are to seek. We seek the means to bring to pass that which we are asking for. How to obtain the promised thing.
Remember king David and the Ark….
1 Chronicles 15:13 “For because ye did it not at the first, the Lord our God made a breach upon us, for that we sought Him not after the due order.”
For that we sought Him not after the due order.
This was a very devotional act…..moving the Ark to Jerusalem. But David did not seek Him after His due order…..but had a meeting of his close associates.
God is a God of order and He always has His due order for us.
And what is His due order for us Christians?
Matthew 21:21-22 “Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
Believing obedience. He requires us to obey Him…..and believe Him while we obey Him.
This is His due order.
“But if ye shall say unto this mountain”. Mountains speak of things we cannot, of ourselves, do anything about.
And we are to speak …..what He wants said….in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Our words are important….they are not to be thrown around….but are to be used to honor the Lord.
Then knock…use His Word, in believing obedience and it shall be opened.
When the Lord Jesus has my will….then He will use my will to bring His Will to pass…because they are One.
I am to stay knocking, until it is indeed opened unto me.
(I want to remind every Christian here,…..that Christ Jesus has knocked on our hearts door for a long time.
He has stood….waiting, for us to open our hearts to Him……and our lives to Him. Revelation 3:20)
Let us then, not be weary in well doing. Not be tired of praying, and thinking we see no results….
….but let us labor on, asking of the Lord….and receiving.
Putting what we received to work by seeking the means of having it.
And then speaking what He wants…..in believing obedience to Him….
Keep using the means until God opens up the door that has been shut before us.
