meeting with our man of God Pastor Chris. Watch this! PASTOR CHRIS TEACHINGS BEGINS
Ephesians chapter number 3 and I want to read to you from verse 20. Ephesians chapter 3 from verse 20 it says ‘’Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. And everybody said Amen! (Crowd response: Amen!) Yeah, it says now unto him; It’s talking about the power of God
and His ability to do mighty things, Beyond our thinking, Beyond all that we can even ask, It says now unto Him that is able to do exceeding
abundantly above all that we ask or think. Nothing that you want God to do for you
that He’s unable to do, The bible says He has the ability to perform
exceeding abundantly above! the new international version says
“now to him who is able to do immeasurably more…” So He can do far beyond all that we could ask for, All that we could think of, But here is something to notice, I’d read it fully and I want you to notice, ‘’now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that worketh in us. You see even though God has got all the power, He is got all the ability, He can do all that we ask or think, He says he does it according to the
power that works in us. What’s God is going to do for you will be
according to the power that works in you… How important this is; So just because He has got all the power
doesn’t mean that He moves in on your behalf, Or moves in into your situation and performs
things according to his discretion, somebody what, isn’t God sovereign? Yes! He is sovereign, very sovereign. But in His sovereignty;
He chooses to do it this way. He says according to His power that works in us. The power of God works more in some of us
than in others, why? Ok, let’s look at it again, “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, According to the power that worketh in us, According to the power that worketh in us, He is able to do
according to the power that works in us. He is able to do
according to the power that works in us. This will explain why certain Christians
even though they are God’s people, Go through some situations, that destroys them. In spite of the fact that they were praying. They prayed and prayed, and prayed, But trouble still came, Or they were in trouble already and
they were praying to come out of it And it destroys them, Destroy their business, Destroy their finances, Destroy their bodies. Some prayed and prayed, When they were attacked by certain kind of sickness, It didn’t go till it kills them. You say why do such things happen?
That is what I am showing you now. It says God is able to do more than we could imagine; More that we could even ask for; But that He does it according to the power that works in us, Not according to His power in heaven. According to the power and that is God’s
power that works in us, in us. So how much of God’s power is working in you? It did say according to the power that is in us, But that works in us. It must be working in us, Remember something in the book of Acts chapter 1, Just before the ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ, He spoke to His disciples,
and He said to them, Tarry in Jerusalem until the Holy Spirit comes, And He said
“because you shall receive power when He comes” “when He comes upon you, you shall receive power” So to receive the power is the first thing, But how much of the power is working in you? It’s not enough to receive that power, It’s whether that power is working. It says according to the power that works in us; According to the power that works in us. You see there are sockets,
for electric power all over this building; Some of them right now are not working
because they are not connected. You have to connect! It’s not enough to have the power, You may have a generating plant, A power generating plant that switched off, It has the potential, But it is off, until you turn it on. You may have the potential; in fact you have the potential if you have the Holy Spirit. A potential refers to the power, But the point is, How much of that power is working in you? How much of it are you putting to work? Because God is going to do for you, According to the power that is working in you; It explains why many pray without effect, And that is why some say that the days of miracles are past And they are so wrong, It’s like saying God is dead, It’s like saying God has changed, Yet the bible say
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” His name still has power, The Holy Spirit is still working in our lives
the same way He did in bible days; Otherwise our salvation is inferior, But if we have the same salvation that
they had in bible days, That the Apostle had and the other believers had, And the salvation Jesus spoke about? Then we have all that they have. Hallelujah! (Crowd response: Praise the Lord!) Hallelujah! (Crowd response: Praise the Lord!) Yeah!
According to the power that works in us And that is what I gave you an outline for yesterday And we want to begin to discuss that. Alright? The first thing I said, was number one mediation, And I want to teach you how to put that power
to work in your life in an increasing measure, So that continually in your Life,
You have the power of God working in you. And you find that you are able to do more and
more and more and more in your life continually. Mediation I said is number 1 and I want us to look at the book of Joshua
chapter number 1 and verse 8. Joshua chapter 1 and verse number 8. STAY TUNED PASTOR CHRIS WOULD BE RIGHT BACK!…. ADVERT
Our walk with God, Requires a deep understanding of his
declarations about us And the liberty of His presence Pastor Chris-
What does God said about Himself? What has he said about me? What has he said about the Church? What has he said about us? He said my son give me your heart and
let your eyes observe my ways. How is that going to happen, only through His word. The word of God is for doing, Not just so you can hear it and then say I believe it, You’ve got to do it! So you are hearing about fellowship now… Fellowship is something you do, As we worship together, as we pray together… We are having fellowship and that means
there is a communion, And that means there is protection,
There is impartation, Think about it! There is growth, and that means that we are on our way fulfilling our destiny in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah! In this special teaching on fellowship you’ll learn in very practical terms, what it means to fellowship the Lord and One another To place your order please call or visit www.christembassyonlinestore.org Also you can download on mobile through the Pastor Chris Digital library app available on Google play store and I-store.

Joshua chapter 1 and verse number 8… It says ‘’this book of the law shall not
depart out of thy mouth; Did you notice it didn’t say out of thy heart? Now… that is, I mean that goes without saying; It shouldn’t depart from our heart of course, But God is trying to get a point across to your spirit. It says ‘’this book of the law shall not
depart out of thy mouth; That means… Keep talking it! Don’t stop saying it! Is that right? (Crowd response: Yes Pastor) It shall not depart out of thy mouth. The word of God must be in your mouth! Alright “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth” But thou shall meditate therein day and night; “that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shall make thy way prosperous” You see, it’s your responsibility, You are to make your way prosperous… Did you see that? Now I like it when God gives me the responsibility, Because that helps me know, I can decide how successful I want to be. It takes the mystery out of Life. When we say well we don’t know what’s going to happen, No we know what’s going to happen. His word already said it! Or I don’t you know some people make an effort and say we’ll just see what comes out, We’ll just see what comes out? God doesn’t talk like that, No wonder what’s coming all over
the world is something bad. Look at the businesses, Look at the banks, Look what’s going on… Look at the economies of the world. Because they are been run by people who do things and say we’ll see what comes out. Well we are just going to do this and see what happens. And see what happens? You ought to see what happens before you start. Abraham saw what happen before he started; Joshua saw what happen before he started,
the same with Moses; David did
Solomon did, The prophets did,
The Apostles did, Jesus did,
That is the way to see it, You see it first.
God said to Abraham look! As far as your eyes can see that I have given unto you, He says look Before they went out to conquer the Canaanite, God said to Moses see I have given you the land, He said see I have given you the land. You see it first! You take a hold of it first! You don’t say well we are just going to do this
and ermmm we have this idea, We think is a fantastic idea We just going to do this and see what happen, And see what happens? No wonder after several years of seeing… By what happens, instead of seeing by the Spirit, You are seeing by what happens.
We don’t see by what happens, We don’t wait for things to show up,
We see and we do. It’s easy for me to understand, as an architect, It’s easy for me to understand that as an architect, You can tell whether or not that building is going
to stand before you start. You don’t build a house and say we’ll see,
We’ll see if it stands, (Laughs)
We don’t do that. I don’t understand the bankers, And a lot of business people who want to do things
and see what happens. Some of you are here you run parts of the government too, You run banks too,
You want to see what happens? Look what’s happening, Hallelujah! (Crowd response: Praise the Lord) So He says “this book of the law shall not
depart out of thy mouth: but thou shall meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe, You see, he says if you mediate; I want you to notice it says …thou shall meditate, This is your Job, it says thou shall mediate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe, He didn’t say listen he didn’t say and
thou mayest observe, He says that thou, that means if you would meditate, it would cause you to do. Oh Hallelujah! You see they are many who are struggling
to do the word of God; They don’t understand the word and that is why
they are struggling; He says if you would meditate
It would cause you to do it! So the secret is in meditation; When you meditate on the word of God, It would cause you to do it… You would not have to be trying;
Somebody says “I tried this thing and it didn’t work, you made a mistake” The word has power! If the word would get into you sufficiently
it would produce results… It says “when the cloud be full of rain, they empty
themselves upon the earth” It didn’t say “when the clouds be full of rain try and
bring them down” It says “they empty themselves on the earth” In Ezekiel Chapter 36 let’s go there, the book of Ezekiel… I want you to notice something beautiful, hmmm… From verse 26, Ezekiel 36 from verse 26 it says
“a new heart also will I give you” This was prophetic; this was before Jesus came… This over in the Old Testament the prophet Ezekiel spoke by the Spirit of God about things that are happening today, He spoke concerning the coming of the Spirit, The new creation….ok? Watch this! ’A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put within you: And I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh; And I will give you a heart of flesh; And I will put my Spirit within you… and cause you to walk in my statues. Oh Lord, Lord.
Did you see that? He said “I will put my Spirit within you, and cause
you to walk in my statues” He didn’t say “I will put my Spirit within you and you
shall try to walk in my statues” So why are you trying so hard? Because you haven’t recognized the Spirit of God in your Life, If you would meditate on the word, It says it would make you observe and do, If you’d mediate on the word, “so mightily grew the word of God and prevailed” If the word would grow in you, the bible says “let the word of Christ dwell in you richly” Richly! Now look at the Holy Spirit also says; “I’d put my spirit within you and cause
you to walk in my statues” So you see why is so important to have
the Holy Spirit in your Life… So studying the word is one part; Meditation is something else; Meditation means contemplation; It means cogitations; You contemplate the word of God. Now you remember in second Corinthians chapter 3
and verse 18 when it says “as we look the Glory of God in a mirror, as we behold the Glory of God in a mirror” What it says is “as we contemplate the Glory of God”, We contemplate the Glory of God in a mirror, Because we have to continue looking,
It’s not just a glance, You keep looking, You behold, you contemplate, That is why in James says
“the one who looks and continues to look” “not been a forgetful hearer” He keeps looking; he continues to look. So this is dealing with meditation, Look what he told Joshua;
Go back to Joshua chapter 1, So you want to be very successful in your
life in anything you do, You hear me saying all the time,
I say I’m a success, Yes! And I will always be a success, But why? Because of the word! The word has showed me how to be a success.
I’d never be a failure, I’d never be a failure,
I could never be a failure! You see that? And I go from Glory to Glory, It’s called ever increasing Glory… I’d show that to you shortly. Go back to Joshua Chapter 1 verse 8. (Music playing) Advert
