26 March 2017 - Good Things Happen to Us When We Have Peace - Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes Online - New Creation Church Sermon Notes Online
This sermon was originally preached back in 2006.
The anointing of God is timeless, so the power of God that was present and available back then is still available for you today!
Man's way is based on the avoidance-mentality.
Books on health talk about avoiding types of food - almost like saying we need to become vegetarian and eat only fruits and vegetables.
Those who advocate that are implying that the earth has not fallen.
We cannot trust in creation, we must trust in redemption.
Romans 5:1-2 - If you are saved, you have peace with God.
Once you believe in what Jesus has done for you at the cross, you have been justified by faith.
In Greek, it also says "Let us have peace", let us possess that peace with God actively.
Many people have more faith in the devil's ability to hurt and destroy them than in God's protection.
Faith can be defined as having a good opinion of God.
Abraham was strong in faith because he had a good opinion of God.
If God shuts a window it's because He's about to rip off the roof!
If God closes a door, he's about to open the gate -
If you are successful at a smaller calling, you won't go pursue a higher calling. God wants to take you higher!
“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” (Romans 5:1-2 NKJV)
Abraham had such a good opinion of God that he brought his beloved son Isaac up to Mount Moriah to be sacrificed.
He couldn't see God leading the ram up to the mountain too as Isaac's substitute.
The world thinks that they have to watch their own backs and fend for themselves.
They don't have a good opinion of God.
God watches over His beloved, even when they are sleeping.
One of the most beautiful creations made by God was made when man was sleeping - the woman.
When you have this peace, you will have access into God's unmerited favor.
