RIGHT WORD AT RIGHT TIME EQUALS RIGHT RESULTS
1 chronicles 4:9-10- 9 And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.
10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.- (KJV)
9 Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez,[c] saying, “I gave birth to him in pain.” 10 Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request. (NIV)
12 Then spake Joshua to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.
13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.
Lord Turn Ahihophels Counsel into foolishness
2 Samuel 15:31- 31 And one told David, saying, Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom. And David said, O Lord, I pray thee, turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness.
2 Samuel 17:14 And Absalom and all the men of Israel said, The counsel of Hushai the Archite is better than the counsel of Ahithophel. For the Lord had appointed to defeat the good counsel of Ahithophel, to the intent that the Lord might bring evil upon Absalom.
Mark 4: 35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
THESE FOUR STORIES INTRODUCE THE TOPIC
“RIGHT WORD AT THE RIGHT TIME EQUALS RIGHT RESULTS”
How can we too speak the right word at the right time for right results?- Four suggestions
The four suggestions
1. Humility- Jabez, Joshua, David- 1st Peter 5: and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Proverbs 22;4- 4 By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life.
2. Character- Integrity– doing what is right no matter the circumstances- or who sees you. Can God Trust you Proverbs 22:1- A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.
3. Dwell in the secret place or DEVELOP A very close relationship with God-recommendation- spend time praying in the spirit, AND speaking in tongues, why because you are in perfect agreement with the will of God when you pray in the spirit thereby allowing you to draw closer to God and to his will.
Psalm 91:1- He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
4. Faith and works
How can we do this?- Speak or pray a word in Due season
5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
Proverbs 15:23- 23 A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it! KJV
Speak the word in Due Season
Hebrews 11:1- Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
6:But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
James 2: 14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.KJV
Humility, Character, Dwelling in the secret place-(pray in the spirit- speak in tongues) Faith and workS
-Speak or pray a word in due season is understanding the mind of God for that time and moment
