Louise on the Area of Faith, Part 1, Thursday June 30, 2022

Part 1 of Lesson Today on Divine Healing and Faith to Obtain the promises like healing, salvation, peace, prosperity, etc. Read Romans 4:16- 23 for the story of Abraham and his faith.
The promise of God to Abraham. Before the promise comes to pass, Abraham and Sarah made some mistakes. And here the story of Hagar, Ishmael, etc.
Your way is not necessarily God’s way.
Abraham had to spend some time with God to find the truth of God’s message. Same with us. You have to speak what you believe and hope for.
Jesus said “come to me with a childlike faith,” or a simple faith based on the love of the father.

16 Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring—not only to those who are of the law but also to those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all.

17 As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.

18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”

19 Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead.

20 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God,

21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.

22 This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness.”

Thursday June 30 2022. How to Apply our Faith, Part 2

What is faith? This lesson on the spirit of God. The Holy Spirit is the
Generator. The light switch is “faith.” It turns on the power of the
Holy Spirit. Louise uses the metaphor of learning to drive a car.

See Hebrews 11:1 for the definition of faith.

Romans road to salvation beings with Romans 9:10. The process of believing
and confession. Power is Holy Spirit who energizes you. Next Scripture is Mark
11:22-24.

Have faith in God. Faith and speaking go together.

What is your mountain? Your trouble or need? Your mountain is your problem.
Speak to the mountain and believe what you say and believe.

Find in Scripture what addresses your problem–the mountain metaphorically.
Then claim it–or the answer–with your spirit and your words.

Jesus’s parables and words never change. What you say has to back up what
you believe.

Louise Teaching on Taking Offense, Part 2, Saturday June 25 2022

Study number 2 of Louise teaching on offenses. Started with unforgiveness and explained how faith will not work when one remains offended, and does not forgive.

In the list of areas of taking offenses (see Part 1), here is:

4. Unrealistic and unfulfilled expectations. You set yourself up for too high a goal, for example, and not one that God has set up for your. Louise employs analogies from rearing children and sports, and parents often living out their unfulfilled expectations by pushing their children.

5. Rebellion. Bible says a spirit of rebellion is like a spirit of witchcraft.

6. Critical spirit. Louise shared a story of her mother’s family, growing up with four sisters with a spirit of criticism among them which flowed into the children as well. Can you keep your moth shut when unforgiveness, hatred and a critical spirit all attack you, many inherited from her mother’s world.

7. Feelings that God has been unfair with you. The “blame game” started in the Garden of Eden. You have a free will. Neither God nor Satan can make you do anything. You are responsible for all your choices. God did not set you up to fail. God is for you, not against you. And he loves you so much.

Two Lessons on Offenses, Part 1, Saturday June 25 2022

Louise teaching on offenses in two lessons. First thing is forgiveness. With her girls in jail ministry, for example, they need to get past unforgiveness, bitterness, pain, etc. We all need to get past these hurts. Dr. Larry Ollison’s book on offcnses is very good. Great story about monkeys holding on to something, and calling down death on themselves. Just listen to teaching above. Do you have a chip on your shoulder? Need to throw it off. Offenses need to be set aside and than walk in love. Louise speaks that she has learned from her own experiences in getting offended and then walking in love. How do you get past offenses and then walk in love? “The girls in my jail ministry are surrounded by contentious, argumentative, condeming people.” How to deal with them? Ignore them as much as possible. God will defend you; you don’t need to have the last word in any argument. Seven reasons in the taking offenses lesson:

  1. Oversensitivity.
  2. Insensitivity. What crazy things pop in your mouth without being filtered. If you can’t curb your mouth, just don’t talk.
  3. Take authority over your thoughts. God isn’t going to jump in and correct you. You are the central guard of your thoughts and words.
  4. Tune into Part 2 for more.

Louise Teachings a Three Part Series on Love, Monday June 6 2022, Part 1

Louise teaching a three part series on Love, Monday June 6 2022. See Galatians 5 to start with. God wants us to act as he would act, not the way we might respond to insults, hurt, etc. We tend to make excuses and blame everything else.
We need to trust in the Holy Spirit, especially in your love walk. God wants to bring you up to his standard, rather than working, acting to your own standard, built largely upon the flesh.
You need to renew your mind daily to the word of God

Love Teaching a Three Part Series on Love, Monday June 6, 2022, Part 2

Louise teaching a three part series on love, Monday June 6, 2022 part 2. Let’s start with the Book of Matthew, 4:1. Why did Jesus have to be baptized and have the Holy Spirit come upon him? All of us–like Jesus–need to baptized and receive the Holy Spirit.
Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil. God will sometimes test us to see what is in our hearts.
We think we know it, and then are put to the test and in our own wilderness we learn to grow close, and totally dependent, upon God.
Have you ever felt God has abandoned you? He hasn’t. You need to keep reading and studying.
Jesus’s answer to temptation was the word of God.

Louise Teaching a Series on Love, Monday June 6, 2022, Part 3

Louise Teaching on Love, Monday June 6, 2022, Part 3. Read Matthew 5, the Beatitudes. Louise examines the meanings and teachings of the Beatitudes, beginning with “Blessed are….”
The areas addressed in the Beatitudes are 1. repentance, 2. the meek, “one who is teachable” and has a humble spirit. One who is willing to be taught. 3.Those who have a discerning spirit and only trust in the word of God. 4. We’ve become very complacent, comfortable in our ways. We need to change to hunger and thirst after righteousness. 5. We need to learn to be more like Christ. I want wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. 6. Blessed are the merciful. We need to find God’s mercy, invoked when God calls us to be merciful. 7. Blessed are the pure in heart. Read 1 John 1:9 to receive forgiveness and grow closer to God. 8. Blessed are the peacemakers. Do NOT hang out with disbelievers, liars, cheats, morally poor. You become more like them, than the reverse.
