5 Steps To A God Pause

5 Steps To A God Pause


5 Steps To Pause


Pray


Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT) – (6) Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. (7) Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ.


There is no better bodyguard than the PEACE of God.


Philippians 4:8-9 (NLT) – (8) And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. (9) Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me – everything you heard from and me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.


“In the circle of successful living, prayer is the hub that holds the wheel together. Without our contact with God we are nothing. With it, we are ‘a little lower than the angels, crowned with glory and honor.’  “ – Conrad Hilton


Affirm


Psalm 34:1 (ISV) – I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise will be in my mouth continuously.


(GNB) – I will always thank the LORD; I will never stop praising him.


Utilize


Ephesians 6:16-18 (ESV) – (16) In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;… (17) and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,… (18) praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.


Submit


James 4:7 – Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.


You will NEVER be able to RESIST the devil if you can’t SUBMIT to God.


James 4:6 – God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.


James 4:8 (NLT) – Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world.


Encourage


1 Samuel 30:6 (KJV) – And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.


1 Samuel 14:6-7 (KJV) – (6) Jonathan said to the young man who carried his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised. It may be that the LORD will work for us, for nothing can hinder the LORD from saving by many or by few.” (7) His armor bearer replied, “Do all that is in your heart. Go ahead; I am with you heart and soul.”
