“Practical Ways to Please God”
“Six Things that will change your life”
March 10th, 2018
When “a man’s ways please the Lord”, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him. Proverbs 16:7
At first glance, this verse appears only to be saying that if we are pleasing to the Lord, our enemies will be at peace with us. However it implies much more! The word “even” is quietly declaring that there are many other previously unmentioned benefits derived from our ways pleasing the Lord. In other words, there are many unspoken blessings that just naturally occur when our ways please Him.
About a month ago you received an article titled, “Preparing for the Supernatural”. The primary reason was to share with you the very real possibility of Angelic activity in my home but it was also to make you acutely aware that you too have these same activities occurring in your own home. Simply saying that Angels are the Lord’s messengers to us, His Saints.
Additionally, heard the Lord saying to, “Prepare to Live in the Supernatural. It is now time to begin walking in the Spirit, our lives wether we consider these things or not, we are about to take on a metamorphic change.
I am an expectant man!
And I believe it will become absolutely obvious to the Church on a massive scale very soon! Believe the change will arrive on one of the Feast days, perhaps Passover, Pentecost or even Tabernacles. There is good cause for each of these specific Feast days for it to begin.

I am expecting to see a great repentance fall upon the True Church! I am expecting to see a Great Release from Bondage off the Saints! I am expecting to see the Glory and the Power to settle upon the True Church. The Kingdom is not word but it is Power!
I am expectant from All I see and hear and feel. Dear Saint, do not think as most saying, “where is the promise of His coming?”  You are in this world but you are not of it, do not act like it!
But God hath chosen (us) the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things (us) of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 1 Corinthians 1:27
Within that same article, I gave “Six things that will change your life.” Some years ago, I began taking communion each day, many days I made open out loud declarations and sought the Lord. Dear Saint, I can tell you for certain it began to change me! In fact I had dreams where the Lord spoke to me regarding these acts saying, “because I had chosen to engage Him, the enemy was losing his fight against me and he had to call for reinforcements.
In all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. Romans 8:37
Oh the laziness of man!
Though I knew this I got away from doing these things. Only in this last month have I again begun making open out loud declarations that are based upon the Word of God. Making righteous declarations even at times reading them from the Word but primarily out of the Spirit within me. It is of extreme importance that you hear right words and statements of truth spoken over your mind and spirit. This is akin to blessing your spirit through God’s Spirit and Word.
Only in this last month have I been taking communion each day as before. Each day I have worship music on in the morning. Each day I have been seeking the Lord in prayer with understanding and each day I pray in the Spirit. I now for the most part, leave the radio off when driving. I have been praying in the Spirit. Dear Saint, learn to redeem your time, it is for your highest benefit; build up your inner man.
The results have been nothing less than astonishing!
In this last year, I have been struggling with some severe heart issues. Have a history of two 8-hour long heart surgeries and taking four meds. And we were on the verge of another heart surgery. Saying that to say this, these last few weeks, I have been having so small an issue with the heart I rarely think of it. I am sleeping better and with better rest also comes a better attitude.
These are benefits (I believe according to Scriptures) that come when a man’s ways are pleasing to the Lord. Please understand, I am not saying we can work our way to heaven, we know better than that. However we can do things that facilitate a righteous behavior and attitude and spirit. Faith without works is dead.
Giving more permission to the Spirit to bring to mind when I should pray, I try not to grieve or quench Him, I am learning to obey in a greater measure. I encourage you dear Saint, the closer you choose to be to Him, He will replicate. He is a Rewarder to those who diligently seek Him.
If we truly desire for our ways to please the Lord, we know from Scripture just how to achieve this change. Just as we know that “He is the Way, the Truth and the Life, so too we know that there is a very “distinct way” for us to please Him.

These are practical ways, nothing new with the exception of instituting these six things into our daily lives. Please we are not advocating a ritual or methodology. We sincerely want them to be meaningful to both the Lord and also to us and through them to cause us to draw closer into relationship with Him.

When we truly commit ourselves to these six things, we will see results and they will be life changing. They cause you to meditate upon the Lord, soon He becomes a much larger part of your life.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14
“The Six Things that will change your life”
1. Reading the Word Daily
Even a few verses and meditate upon them throughout the day. They will renew your mind from all the chaos that surrounds you.
2. Taking Communion every day
You can use common elements in your kitchen. Do not hesitate to take communion if you are alone, if we put off taking communion until we are with others, it will not happen often. Therefore, take it every day even if you are alone.
The elements are symbolic, therefore do not think in any way it is  not approved of the Lord. This does not have to be a “formal” thing; it can be a very loving offering with an open  heart. 
3. Making godly declarations out loud
The devil cannot read your mind, it is up to you to make sure he
hears your spiritual voice and knows your 
Intentions. But more importantly, you have great need to hear words of truth and the intentions of God declared over you. So allow the Spirit to move your mouth to speak right things over you!
4. Praying in tongues
 Cannot stress this enough! This is the Spirit within you making   intercession for you, this is “Pure Prayer”.
 The Word states: There are times when the situation is so grievous  that we do not know how to pray as we should. Therefore when we begin to pray in the Spirit, the Spirit knows exactly the will of the Lord and will join with your voice in praying the will of the Father.
The more you pray in the Spirit, the stronger your faith will become! You are joining with the Holy Spirit as He hears and does only the intentions of the Father and the Lord Jesus. There is perfect Unity in the Household of God. 
5. “Saying, singing and praying the name of Jesus!” 
Know that some will prefer Yeshua as His Name but I have found during attacks in several dreams over 35 years, the Name of Jesus Works!

Every knee has to bow at the Name of Jesus! When the devil comes at you with an attack, you should respond by “saying, singing and praying the Name of Jesus” out loud! Again, he cannot read your mind. In so doing, you are making it very Unprofitable for the enemy to come against you!
6. Playing worship music
Change the atmosphere in your home, begin your morning with worship music playing. Use your iPod, CDs or a 
Christian radio station. Saint I say to you, your attitude towards the Lord and your view of life situations will change for the better. Even when we are not aware, the Word of God does not return void, it has impact!
Allow the Spirit to minister to you especially when you are tired and weary and have much on your mind. If you allow your spirit and your heart to be open and receive, your perspective will come into alignment with the Lords’.
Blessings to you and your house,
