Keep Moving Forward Advancing the Kingdom

“If you can? Said Jesus, everything is possible for him who believes” Mark 9:23
 
 

Most of the times in life we tend to become stagnate in the body of Christ when it comes to the things of God. Perhaps you are reading this article and you don’t feel like things are going as you need for them to go strive to move forward. Perhaps you may feel like you’re at a stand still while your zeal and passion seems to be fading away. As a word of encouragement to you from God he wants you to move forward and advance the Kingdom no matter what. As a believe who is in ministry or business leader, you may be facing a hard time in your life, which is a real place, just know that God still wants you to keep moving forward and advance His Kingdom so I say unto you press through.

Here are a few requirements to Keep Moving Forward and Advancing the Kingdom.
 
 1) Keep Praying the Word
 
The scripture says, “If you believe, you will receive what you ask for when you pray and all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive” (Matthew 21:22 KJV).  The interesting point in this scripture is, “what shall ye ask in prayer” we must understand that our asking must be aligned with the word of God with scripture as a support. If there is no alignment of scripture to support our asking then that prayer will not be answered and the kingdom will not be advanced in our lives. Even though, the scripture says “as Jesus was speaking to His disciples he said unto them, “When you pray, say: Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. Your will be done [held holy and revered] on earth as it is in heaven Luke 11:2 (AMP).  This is a main example as to praying in alignment with the word of God. The next requirement for advancing the Kingdom is to
 
2) Keep Believing God
 
there are several Christians who have just stopped believing God for the things of God due to negative circumstances and situations that occur in everyday life. We must remember that is was the “fool hath said in his heart, there is no God” (Psalm 14:1 KJV). In other words when we stop believing God for the reason of discouragement, distress or calamity we are subconsciously indirectly saying there is no god, in other words we are saying “I’m giving up and throwing in the towel”. NOT SO says the Lord Kingdom Citizens do not quit. We must remember that God can and God will work on your behalf. So, keep advancing the Kingdom. Although it may look bleak and dim we must strive to make every effort in pleasing God. Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) says, “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him (God) must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. In other words, the scripture is saying, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is the great I AM. You have to get that settled within your heart that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Therefore, we must return back to what he first told us to do; we must return back to the vision. Many of us sometimes get weary like the prophet whom the scripture says, “he was getting weary and discouraged” (Habakkuk 2:1) God answered his prayer with telling him to write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. God told him to go back to the vision because he was feeling discouraged and weary as his soul was not upright in him. In other words, his soul was not standing up in him. Having your soul upright on the inside is a must which will lead to the requirement for Moving forward and advancing the kingdom and that is
 
3) Keep Speaking the Word of God (Faith Talk)
 
We must continue to have nothing but Faith Talk come out of our mouth. God is pleased when we talk faith!!! We must keep speaking the word of God over our lives and in our situations. Jesus said, it’s not what goes into a man’s mouth that defiles him but it’s what comes out of His mouth which defiles. We must remember that the enemy will try stop you from speaking the word of God. Speak the word of God like never before. You have to speak the word of God every day. The enemies’ job is to silence the people of God, he wants to silence you by causing us to look at our present situations, and cause us to think God is not going to come through for you are you will not receive your breakthrough.

 

A major indicator that you are talking God language is when you speak, the carnal mind will say, “you sound crazy, or that does not make sense” anytime the word of God is coming out of your mouth and it sounds crazy to others you are speaking faith talk which is the language of the Kingdom (Faith talk will always be connected with (I believe). The enemy will tell you, “God is not going to come through for us”. On the contrary, “For without Faith it is impossible to please God” God is pleased when “Faith Talk” comes out of our mouth. What is “Faith Talk”?  Faith Talk is speaking the word of God over a situation just like God spoke the world into existence. An example, of Faith Talk is found in the scriptures as it says, (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, so shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith… He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform (Romans 4:17-21 KJV) God heart’s desire is to see men come to know him as believers, Ministry and business Leaders we must remain established in the faith according to Isaiah 7:9 is says, if ye will not believe, surely ye shall not be established. If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.

 

Isa 62:1 The LORD says, “For the good of Zion I will not keep silent. For Jerusalem’s benefit, I will not remain quiet. I will not keep silent until its people’s godliness shines like the sunrise. I will not remain quiet until they are saved and shine like a blazing torch. God does not want us to keep silent. He wants us to cry loud and spare not. It is a daily requirement morning noon and night he has stationed guards on the walls. They must never be silent day or night. You who call out to the LORD must not give yourselves any rest. Isaiah 62:6 (KJV)
 
In closing when you speak the word of God you’ve got to believe what you are speaking, keep speaking the word of God as you Move Forward Advancing the Kingdom.
