1 CORINTHIANS 4:20-21
“(20) For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power. (21) What do you want? Shall I come to you with a rod, or in love and a spirit of gentleness?”
GOD KNOWS WHAT YOU STRUGGLE WITH
“(21) However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”
God knows what you are dealing with and He is more than able to deliver you. God will heal you, deliver you, and set you free as in JOHN 8:36, “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” He knows your struggle with anger, lust, or perversion. God knows you struggle with doubt. GOD IS ABLE TO DELIVER YOU!
“(22) But the LORD has been my defense, And my God the rock of my refuge. (23) He has brought on them their own iniquity, And shall cut them off in their own wickedness; The LORD our God shall cut them off.”
God saying, “NO”, is protection from the devil and his yes. GOD may have told you no to some people, places, or things and you may not understand why but it is because he is protecting you in the long run…. Follow God before you follow man.
“(12) There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.”
Some things GOD may have told you no from is keeping you from death… Some things like……
“(20) He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will be destroyed. (21) Evil pursues sinners, But to the righteous, good shall be repaid.”
Some friendships are not GOD ordained. Sometimes we are friends with people from childhood, military comradery, and sometimes even church. Then all of a sudden, you get this feeling that you are not supposed to be friends with them… You start noticing comments that are a little shady, you start noticing looks, or small things of those sort… That feeling is the HOLY SPIRIT warning you to leave them…
They may have the spirit of envy… The spirit of envy was behind our LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST BEING CRUCIFIED.
“(18) For he knew that they had handed Him over because of envy.”
Although you are The Lord’s child, you are not JESUS. Although The Lord has told you to pick up your cross to follow HIM,
“(24) Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”
You are not The Lord and somethings are unnecessary for you to go through.You do not know their hearts or their true intentions for your life, but GOD does. GOD KNOWS THE HEART!
1 SAMUEL 16:7
“(7) But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance but the LORD looks at the heart.”
Heed GOD’s warning.
GOD could be warning you about a relationship with a boyfriend/girlfriend/fiancé/ husband/wife
1 SAMUEL 15:22-23
“(22) So Samuel said: Has the LORD s great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, As in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams. (23) For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry, Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, He also rejected you from being king.”
“(1) O LORD, You have searched me and known me. (2) You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. (3) You comprehend my path and my lying down , And are acquainted with all my ways. (4) For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold , O LORD, You know it altogether. “
GOD is the Chief Musician, God knows music. GOD’s music is glorious and it glorifies HIS NAME. He deserves all the praise.
“(40) But He answered and said to them, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.”
Music is worship to the LORD.
With that being said… if the music you are listening to does not glorify The LORD… why are you listening to it….
If you are struggling with lust, pornography, pre-martial sex, or fornication and you need deliverance because The Bible says,
1 CORINTHIANS 6:18
“(18) Flee sexual immorality, Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.”
You shouldn’t listen to certain type of music that spreads the spirit of perversion..
Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Rihanna, or Nick Minaj are not people you should be listening to if you are struggling with this ….. WHY? Their lyrics and music are contrary to GOD’s Word
“(1) What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? (2) Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? (4) Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”
Verse To Remember:
Ephesians 4:12-13 – 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the [a]edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ
Hosea 2:3-4 – 3 Lest I strip her naked And expose her, as in the day she was born,
And make her like a wilderness, And set her like a dry land, And slay her with thirst.4 “I will not have mercy on her children, For they are the children of harlotry

“(2) So he prayed to the LORD, and said, “Ah, LORD, was not this what I said when I was still in country? Therefore I fled previously to Tarshish; for I know that You are a gracious and merciful God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, One who relents from doing harm.”
“(14) Therefore the LORD has kept the disaster in mind, and brought it upon us; for the LORD our God is righteous in all the works which He does, though we have not obeyed His voice.”
