POWER KEYS FOR SUCCESSFUL RELATIONSHIPS
I have now been ministering for over 40 years. Through these years I have discovered seven (7) Power Keys for successful relationships. If you will adhere to these keys outlined in this newsletter, you will have an unshakeable foundation for your life, your family, and your ministry.
KEY 1 - BE COMMITTED FIRST TO GOD.
This commitment starts with daily Bible reading and study. God will lead you in whatever commitments you need to make to, or with, people.
KEY 2 - GIVE POSITIVE SUPPORT TO THE ONES TO WHOM YOU COMMIT.
Tell the people you're committed to: God will fight for us! Criticize the devil ... NOT people!
KEY 3 - BE ENCOURAGED IN HOW GOD HAS WORKED THROUGH YOU, AND THROUGH OTHERS, IN THE PAST.
Forget disappointments: in people or events. Do NOT look back, except at the successes and the good.
KEY 4 - MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN CONTROL - ALWAYS CONTROL:
Activities - have a plan! Remember to plan for recreation and rest
KEY 5 - GIVE - HAVE FUN GIVING - A LIFE OF SERVICE.
Stay under the anointing by giving out to others in the name of Jesus. As you minister to others, you will be ministered to! Look for needs to meet: people who need healing; people who need help, counsel, or prayer - and then meet the need.
As you pray for others, or help them, or minister to them, you will between them and God. You will be under the anointing! As you pray for the sick, the healing power of Christ will flow through you. As you encourage others, you will be encouraged. Also, you will reap what you sow. As you give to the poor, God will give back to you!
KEY 6 - BE RESPONSIBLE - HAVE A BASE OF OPERATIONS.
Always have a place where people can contact you: where the LIFE of Christ can flow through you to help them or to follow up with them - you want them to GROW and become POWERFUL and PRODUCTIVE in Christ!
KEY 7 - PRAY IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND IN YOUR LANGUAGE.
Build yourself up continually in your relationships with God and with people by praying! Start and continue your day praying in tongues and in your language. Let the Holy Spirit build you up and, also, pray intelligently in matters for which you do NOT know what to pray.
See Jude 20 and Romans 8:26-27. Study Lesson Two How To Talk To God in the Free Bible Studies (Go to www.realmiracles.com and select Bible Studies from the BLUE navigation bars on the left of any page.) Also, study DCC Lessons 8 through 14 in the Advanced Studies.
You need to have strong relationships with God and with those people with which God will lead you to work. Appreciate the people with which God has chosen you to work. However, do NOT try to force relationships: do not make commitments to every person you meet. God will show you those people to whom you should be committed when you are FIRST committed to Him!
Give positive support, or reinforcement to those people to whom you are committed - whether:
They are OVER YOU in a position of authority;
You are OVER THEM; or,
You are on the same level (working or ministry associates).
Remind each other that God will fight for us! Give your associates REWARDS from time-to-time for:
The good work they do;
Their consistency and faithfulness; or,
These rewards do not (always) have to be monetary. Sometimes a pat on the back, or a word of encouragement, is really meaningful: letting them know the good they are doing is not going unnoticed. Let people KNOW you are THANKFUL and APPRECIATIVE of their association with you. Maybe an invitation to dinner, or just spending time alone with them or their family, whether it is a few minutes or a day or two.
It is also important for a man to give positive support to his wife. There are so many ways a wife serves a husband in his ministry that may go unnoticed by him. We need to appreciate those nearest to us, and never to take them for granted. This is where family altar is so important: do not neglect ministering to your own family! They may be your GREATEST DISCIPLES! Read and discuss the Holy Bible together, and then pray together.
It is good to spend time refreshing your mind thinking about all the successes God has given you in the past. God has NOT brought you this far to make you fail. God is FOR you! One time the disciples of Jesus were in a ship in the middle of the sea where the waves were rough and the wind was strong. They became fearful until Jesus came to them on the water and told them not to be afraid. They FORGOT that the Lord had commanded them to GO to the other side. He did NOT intend them to sink or to fail. Jesus intends for you to SUCCEED!
Take time to study in the Holy Bible how others have succeeded: Abraham, Joseph, Daniel, Esther, Mordecai, and the Apostles. Study Militant Church History by Apostle Handley and see how many other Christians have become successful in the Church. They were HUMAN just like you! Do not meditate on past failures; it is a trick of the devil to form a failure image on your mind. Forget past failures - do not look back, except at the SUCCESSES and the GOOD! (Philippians 4:8.)
Looking back at past successes (and NOT looking back at past failures) is easy if you learn how to CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS. Do NOT allow Satan to put bad images on your mind; and do not allow him to use the bad imaginations (image-thoughts) you can put on your mind.
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds); casting down imaginations [of your own and arguments of others], and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every though to the obedience of Christ. - 2 Corinthians 10:3-5
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report: if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8.)
To be a good steward you must be IN CONTROL of the areas, domains, facilities, and personnel:
Over which God has placed you; and,
Over which God has given you power and authority.
The reason you must exercise control is so that you may carry out the work God has given you to do. You must do it the way God has told you to do it. You must CONTROL not only your thoughts, but also your ACTIVITIES. Have a plan.
Jesus gave you POWER:
Over the demons (see verse 20);
Over Satan, himself.
