10 Essentials for Spiritual Growth and Development Pt 2

Ok, here are 5 more essentials for our Spiritual Growth and Development as promised.

6.    There is power in the name of Jesus!
The Name of Jesus is the key that will set you free. Make a choice to start walking in the authority that is yours by delegation, and use the Name of Jesus to receive what belongs to you!

  • “For where two or three are gathered together in MY NAME, there am I in the midst of them” (Matt. 18:20).
  • “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In MY NAME shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues”  (Mark 16:17).
  • “And whatsoever ye shall ask in MY NAME, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son” (John 14:13).
  • “For whosoever shall call upon THE NAME OF THE LORD shall be saved” (Rom. 10:13).
  • “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS…” (Col. 3:17).
  • “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in THE NAME OF THE LORD” (James 5:14).

7.    Know Your Authority in Christ Jesus
The Authority of the Believer. What does the bible say about this subject? Paul said we “reign in life.” We have the authority to rule and reign and have dominion in our life—in the life we have here and now! Romans 5:17 says we can reign in life—in this life—by Christ Jesus.

Maybe you say , “Well, I don’t see very many people ruling and reigning in life.” That’s right and one reason is that this truth hasn’t been proclaimed or taught as it should be. Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge . . . .” Notice this verse doesn’t say sinners are destroyed for lack of knowledge. It says God’s people are destroyed because of their lack of knowledge.

This tells us that if you and I had knowledge of who you are in Christ and would make divine choices of the rights and privileges of their dominion—they wouldn’t be destroyed. One reason Satan is often able to reign, or rule, in the life of Christians is because those Christians do not realize the authority that has been given to them.

8.    We Gotta Watch the Words We Speak and Say What the Bible Says
If life and death are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21), how are you applying that power in your everyday life? The Word is like medicine, but it is most effective when applied properly. If I have a headache, I don’t put a Band-Aid on my head. 🙂

Every day we speak countless words, often paying very little attention to the words themselves. However, it is important to realize that we are creating our world by the words that we speak. Proverbs 18:21 in The Amplified Bible says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].
So, if you want to change your life, change your words. Make that choice in your life; TODAY!

I found this scripture this morning: “You have tested my thoughts and examined my heart in the night. You have scrutinized me and found nothing amiss, for I am determined not to sin in what I say“.Psalm 17:3

9.    Choose to believe the healing scriptures in the bible.
Divine healing is an accomplished fact. It is a gift, like salvation, already paid for at Calvary. Have you accepted God’s gift of healing? Are you experiencing it in your life in full? If not, it’s time for you to possess the promise of healing and enjoy complete health in every area! One of the paramount questions believers ask today is not whether God is able to heal, but whether He is willing to heal. Is it always God’s will to heal? The answer is, “Most assuredly, yes!”

10.    Practice to pay your tithes.

When people set aside a set portion of their income for the Church, this is known as tithing.God Himself is speaking in Mal.3:10 and He is saying, “Prove Me in this.”This is the only time in the Word where God instructs us to prove Him, and it is the one area where most people have withdrawn from proving God.

When we stand on our covenant with God and exercise our rights as tithers, we lay a foundation for success and abundance. Satan has no chance against us. Tithing the tithe rebukes the devourer! When we resist Satan in the Name of Jesus, God’s rebuke is in action. God told the Israelites their words were stout against Him. They were confessing lack and want. It is important to speak our redemption in order for the tithe to produce.

Ok, today we came to 10 essentials; you can read the first essentials here. If there is one that you yourself like to add, write it in a comment and we might come to 100 essentials for our spiritual growth and development. The power of choice is to act upon these truths and to be doers of the word is always at hand. Our life is truly choice driven.
