Deception versus rebellion
A quote from Patricia King's book, Overcoming the Spirit of Narcissism, (kindle version, at location 122 of 780): "When you are deceived you do not know it; that is the nature of it. Deception is different from rebellion. If you were to rebel, you would know what is right yet deliberately choose to do what is wrong. When deceived, you actually believe you are right. Deception creates blind spots in your perception so that you cannot actually see the truth. What you believe feels like the truth when you are deceived."
Meditation: If there is any part of your life that "isn't working" it may be because of a deception. Still yourself and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any deception to you. If its too difficult to be still, go prayer walking (especially pray in tongues) and ask for revelation of any deception.
our Relationship: JOY
1 John 5:14-15 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.
1 Thessalonians 5:15-24 See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to all people. Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. Do not stifle the Holy Spirit. Do not scoff at prophecies, but test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good. Stay away from every kind of evil. Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again. God will make this happen, for he who calls you is faithful.
Philippians 4:4-9 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
Galatians 2:19 When I tried to keep the law, it condemned me. So I died to the law—I stopped trying to meet all its requirements—so that I might live for God. My old self was crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not treat the grace of God as meaningless. For if keeping the law could make us right with God, then there was no need for Christ to die.
Proverbs 3:5-7 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will (know Him) in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.
Colossians 1:12 Your hearts can soar with joyful gratitude when you think of how God made you worthy to receive the glorious inheritance freely given to us by living in the light. He has rescued us completely from the tyrannical rule of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom realm of his beloved Son. For in the Son all our sins are canceled and we have the release of redemption through his very blood.
Spirit Mind Body
Discipline your mind to only think in line with truth (reciting God's promises to you, no fear).
Calm your body. Discipline your body. Build the right habits into your muscle memory and cells.
Keep your spirit open to hear/do with God.
Throughout the day, drop down into your torso area, check in with your inner man - what do you feel? It should be true peace and true joy and restfulness. If not, if there's any stress or fear or anxiety or anger or anything weighing on you, identify it and release it. Move to thankful joy.
Jesus's prayer for us
John 17: ...Jesus ...prayed:
“Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. For you granted me authority over all people that I might give eternal life to everyone you gave me. Now this is eternal life: To know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you sent. I brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. Now Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
“I revealed you to those you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they obeyed your word. Now they know that everything you gave me comes from you. For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory comes to me through them. I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.
“I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I send them into the world. For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you sent me. I gave them the glory you gave me, that they may be one as we are one-- I in them and you in me—so they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and love them even as you loved me.
“Father, I want those you gave me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you gave me because you loved me before the creation of the world. Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you sent me. I made you known to them, and will continue to make you known that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
The key to prayer is to know
Get totally clear in your heart, mind, body, soul and will - as to what is God's will or God's way - then PRAY FOR THAT - and you can absolutely know you receive it, which manifests it.
Consider these 2 scriptures (from YLT):
1 John 5:13-15 These things I did write to you who are believing in the name of the Son of God, that ye may know that life ye have age-during, and that ye may believe in the name of the Son of God. And this is the boldness that we have toward Him, that if anything we may ask according to his will, He doth hear us, and if we have known that He doth hear us, whatever we may ask, we have known that we have the requests that we have requested from Him.
The chapter then goes on to explain we can pray in confidence that God will give life to those for whom you pray and forgive, because you're praying and functioning in His will.
NIV: This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask--we know that we have what we asked of him.
Proverbs 3:1-8 My son! my law forget not, And my commands let thy heart keep, For length of days and years, Life and peace they do add to thee. Let not kindness and truth forsake thee, Bind them on thy neck, Write them on the tablet of thy heart, And find grace and good understanding In the eyes of God and man. Trust unto Jehovah with all thy heart, And unto thine own understanding lean not. In all thy ways know thou Him, And He doth make straight thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes, Fear Jehovah, and turn aside from evil. Healing it is to thy navel, And moistening to thy bones.
NOW, meditate on these 2 prayers of King David:
Invite the Holy Spirit into your being. Ask God to commune with you. Then pay attention.
