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 4:2
