Important things to remember

Here are some important things I want to remember from the book The Lifestyle of a Prophet by James W. Goll.
1.      God is good! All the time!  Psalm 145:9 The Lord is good to all; He has compassion on all he has made. Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever
2.      All things work together for good for those who love the Lord. Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
3.      Keep your expectations high. Just because some people won’t get saved, don’t quit sharing the Gospel. Just because some people won’t be healed, don’t quit praying for healing.
4.      Rely on a trusted community of believers. 1 John 5:4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. “Our faith” not “your faith”. The body of Christ is Jesus with flesh on. Be a committed part of the community of believers called the church.
5.      Be open to change. Because it will come!
6.      Fear not! 1 John 4:4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. Fear is the opposite of faith.
7.      Never, never, never give up! Philippians 1:6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
8.      You are not a victim. You are a victor! 2 Corinthians 2:14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. And Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
9.      The best is yet to come!
10.  Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. The purpose of a lifestyle of intimacy, wisdom and revelation is so we can walk in all that “God prepared beforehand” for us.
