Son's Of The Kingdom Part 2
You will need your Bible and a pen & notebook to complete these lessons. You should be able to copy and paste these outlines to your word processor and print them without difficulty if you so desire. We recommend you record in your note book deep thoughts or questions that may arise as you study, and certainly record all things God reveals to your heart. Look over these notes frequently and use them even as you pray. God will cause you to grow in wisdom and understanding. Keep your note book with you throughout the day as much as possible to record all God reveals to you and to review the things you have learned. Look up all bible verses in this study. Highlight or mark them in your bible. It is Gods Word speaking directly to you.
We also recommend you make a habit of memorizing a scripture each week. This not only helps get the Word deep in your heart, but is also an excellent mental exercise.

THE FOUR INGREDIENTS OF A KINGDOM MAN PART 2
3. KINGDOM MEN PRAY WITH CONFIDENCE
1John 5:14 & 15
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
According to scripture our lack of receiving from God can be rooted in unbelief or possibly a lack of knowledge of God's will on the matter.
Our prayers are to be in faith not out of fear. PRAY EXPECTING TO RECEIVE!
John 14:13 reveas that Godis glorified when our prayers are answered!
THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE.
FAITH IN THE PROMISE OPENS THE DOOR TO THAT PARTICULAR BLESSING IN YOUR LIFE. THEN, FOLLOWING
THE DIRECTIONS OF GOD WILL INSURE IT'S (THE PROMISE) MANIFESTATION IN YOUR LIFE.
YOU CAN TRUST FULLY IN THE PROMISES MADE YOU IN THE WORD.
HOW DID YOU RECEIVE SALVATION? DID YOU NOT FIRST HAVE TO BELEIVE THEN SPEAK IT! THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE.
THIS IS THE METHOD TO WALK IN EVERY PROMISE MADE TO YOU IN GOD'S WORD.It is not a mechanical, step by step
procedure. It is revelation in your heart, confidence in God's Word and "that Word" coming out of your mouth. THIS IS WHAT ACTIVATES THE PROMISE.
JESUS OFTEN SAID "YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WHOLE" - NOT HIS FAITH!
James 5:16 says "the effective, fervent prayer of a rightous man avails much.
4. KINGDOM MEN WALK IN THE SPIRIT
For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
- not minding things of the flesh but your mind kept on spiritual things.
- notice also verse 5; Mind: pay attention to, think bout, focus attention upon, act according to.
THIS TAKES US FULL CIRCLE BACK TO WHERE OUR STUDY BEGAN
"You are My friends if you do whatever I command you."
"I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing."
God the Father is first!
YOUR RELATIONSHIP with Him must be your most heart felt, pressing priority in order to walk in His best.
This doesn't happen by process as much as by spending time with the Father. Once you get to know Him, you can't
help but love Him.
Constantly check your heart and motives; There is a permissable will of God, but there is also theperfect will of God.
- check your heart for carnel thought/attitudes (take every thought into the obedience of Christ)
- Choose to feed your spirit as a necessity, not just when you feel like it.
- Exercise your faith always; you should always be believing for something. You should always have a faith project.
(It may be for someone else's need, not always our own.)
Conclusion: Walking in the kingdom is finding God's will for your life. Try things!
Don't say "can't"!
Have a "can do" attitude.
In stepping out and doing what needs to be done in a church or ministry, trying different things, you may find that thing which sets your heart on fire! God has a perfect plan for your life!
You can do it! You can do what NO ONE ELSE CAN DO BETTER WHEN YOU FIND WHAT GOD'S WILL IS FOR YOU!
YOU ALREADY ARE A KINGDOM MAN, NOW IT'S TIME TO FIND YOUR PLACE IN GOD'S PERFECT PLAN!
