Jesus Made It Easy

Greetings My Friends
This message is almost like a sequel to the one on authority. Besides authority however, it involves faith.
First of all it takes faith in order to hear that little voice in your heart. When you hear the voice, you have to figure out if it is really God talking to you. Does the message line up with the word? If it does, ask the Holy Spirit about it. If it is the voice of God, ask the Holy Spirit for guidance and help.
Believe me, it is not as tough as it sounds. It gets to be something you do without thinking about. So now that you have that part of faith straightened out, we tackle the biggest part. Faith in action.
Some of us pray for someone to be healed. Then we anxiously wait to see if anything happens. We may even think that the sick person is someone who doesn't believe anything, so they probably won't be healed anyway. We may doubt for various reasons, and not even realize we are really doubting.
If you have authority in the workplace, you make a decision, and expect the proper results. Actually, that is the time you should be concerned, because you are dealing with imperfect people, including you.
Jesus makes it easy. When you proclaim even the most seemingly impossible thing in Jesus name, your job is done. Consider it as the best possible outcome. You are finished with that one. Move on to the next.
When you get authority in the world, you are responsible 24 hours a day. You are subject to all of the whims and twists and turns. It is like being in a never ending war.
When Jesus gives you authority, you do what you are led to do, and Jesus says, good job. Let's fix something else. At that point you have total peace, because He does everything else. A farmer would love to plant seeds, and do nothing else but benefit from the great harvest.
We have authority from Jesus that may seem impossible, but remember, Jesus is love, and He is truth. We have the easy part. Jesus says, I can't grow a crop, if you don't plant the seeds. We have to realize that Jesus doesn't just talk, He means what He says. If He says we are to plant the seeds, then plant the seeds. If we think of ourselves as seed planters, it is so much easier to have faith.
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation

Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
