10 KEYS - THE POWER OF UNDERSTANDING
LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF PSALM 119:144
"The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live."
UNDERSTANDING : Simply means your ability to see (picture) what God is saying in His word . Catching the Rhema behind the logos .
1.The power of understanding is what enables your faith to fly high above the storms of life . Jesus said in scripture Matt 9:28b " Believe ye that I am able to do this ? They said unto him , yea lord " . they saw it , understood/caught the rhema and it happened . Once you can catch the rhema behind the logos , heaven cannot deny you your testimony . Prov 11:9"An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered."
2.The power of understanding gives you an uncommon peace in the midst of your storms . While others are shouting and complaining , you are at rest because you have being privileged to receive divine secrets from the lord , that all is well . Amen . (Isaiah 3:10) .It was only Paul that heard this divine information in the ship , others where not privileged to hear this in the book of Acts 27:24 (NLT) ."and he said, 'Don't be afraid, Paul, for you will surely stand trial before Caesar! What's more, God in his goodness has granted safety to everyone sailing with you.' .
3.The power of understanding , brings you into the realms of the "impossible" . What people say is not possible , you laugh and you begin to praise God with joy , because you can see it ( catch the revelation) that with God all things truly are possible . Luke 1:37 (NIV)"For no word from God will ever fail."
4.With the power of understanding in your life , one thing will become obvious to the people around you . "your exceeding joy " .1 Peter 4:13 "But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy."
5.When you have the power of understanding you prayer life becomes stress free , Amen . you no longer struggle with your prayer life. why ? just like a son talks with his biological father , you talk with the Holy Spirit , you just discuss with God . Why? you can see/understand when He reveals His word to you and you discuss with Him via His word. Matt 13:16 (NIV)"But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear."
6.The power of understanding produces rest on every side .understanding has levels . The more you understand the higher you grow in grace . so even if you have not seen the answers to your prayers yet, just like father Abraham , you are fully persuaded that the lord has done it . Amen. Roms 4:21(NIV)"being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised."
7.The spirit of offence is a robber . the power of understanding helps you to live above it . How ? you know anytime you refuse to become offended for the word sake , you are blessed !! Luke 7:23"And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me."
8.With the power of understanding you can endure the pain for the word sake , knowing very well your suffering is not in vain .your day of celebration will definitely also come . Amen. Roms 8:17(Msg)"And we know we are going to get what’s coming to us—an unbelievable inheritance! We go through exactly what Christ goes through. If we go through the hard times with him, then we’re certainly going to go through the good times with him!"
9.In the beginning when I was still a young believer , I use to struggle with understanding the word , but the more I read it , listen to Men of God preach and teach, I began to understand the word and from then with that "power of understanding" , reading my bible gets me excited each time I catch the rhema behind the logos in it .Jer 15:16 "Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts."
10.When you have that power of understanding at work in your life , you can just go on and on and on appreciating God for His goodness , kindness , love , provision , protection because you can see it/understand His ways and know how faithful God is. Come on now appreciate Him , He is good and wonderful . Amen . Psalm 50:23 (Amp)"“He who offers a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving honors Me;And to him who orders his way rightly [who follows the way that I show him],I shall show the salvation of God.”
"The power of understanding , makes the impossible become possible"
Prayer : Father help me to understand your word in Jesus mighty name , Amen .
