No food should be received without it be received with thanksgiving, for it's sanctified by the Word of God and prayer. See? If you eat it, say, 'Lord Jesus, You prepared the food for me. Now, with faith I sanctify this food to the strength of our bodies.
When you go to praying for somebody, something goes to taking place. There is where we fail, friends, not praying. Prayer is the keynote. 'Ask and you shall receive. You have not because you ask not; you ask not because you believe not. Ask abundance, that your joys may be full. Ask and believe that you receive what you've asked for.' Then hold onto it. Don't leave it. If it's a promise in the Bible, and it's been revealed to you that God is going to give it to you, hold to it.
You're a Christian. You have rights to any redemptive blessing that Jesus died for you for. It's all yours. It's already paid for; you just have to believe it, not imagine it; but believe it, and know that it's yours, and you can possess it. Oh, that's the conquering faith.
You that have been truly baptized into the Holy Spirit, and you have the Token to display, you have a right to every redemptive blessing that God promised. Everything that He promised is yours. Hold your Token over your unwavering faith as you pray, and over his Word.
We are then perfect, through Christ. And we are free from judgment, through Christ. We shall never die, through Christ. We have lost death and found Life, through Christ; not through any church, not through any denomination, not through any fantastic, not through speaking with tongues, not through shouting, not through shaking, not through dancing in the Spirit, but by grace.
Always stay with that Word. Always check out your motives and objectives, if it is according to the Word of God. If it isn't, leave it alone. See? But if it's with the Word of God, and lines up with the Word of God, then, that, you hold to that.
Listen. Oil and water don't mix. And many time, a many a good life has been completely wrecked by your associates. Show me your company, I'll tell you who you are. See? That's right. It's an old proverb, but it's the truth. Associate with people who believe God.
