Somebody reading this message, wherever you are, it is time for you to know that you need to lay a solid foundation for your Christian life. A very solid foundation for your leadership; A very solid foundation for your church; A very solid foundation for your members; A very solid foundation for your Christian life; A very solid foundation for each individual around you and in general:
This is the time that you need to assign your foundation into the things of God. Let me take you quickly to the book of 2nd timothy chapter 2: 19 down.
FOUNDATION OF A REAL CHRISTIAN (BY Apostle Paul Johnson Asamoah) How does the foundation of a building start? The foundation of a real Christian can be compared to the foundation of a building. If a building’s foundation is strong, the building will also be strong.
In the book of psalms, the bible says, if the foundation be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
When you lay a good foundation it will affect your life. When you lay a bad foundation in life as a Christian, so will your life be.
Sometimes, as you struggle in life, people may suggest things for you. As you go in for the suggestions, you are taking their suggestions for your foundation.
WHERE YOU ARE TODAY, IT IS THROUGH PEOPLE, IT IS THEIR INFLUENCE!
In Christ, everything is quality, so I want to take you through some things/ scriptures you need to build your foundation as a believer. 1. Walk not in the counsel of the ungodly, morally bad people, the wicked, the unjust, sinners etc. psalms 1:1 2. Stand not in the way of sinners. 3. Do not sit in the seat of the scornful.
For you are to be able to attain a good foundation, and having fulfilled psalms 1:1, you also need Jesus as your foundation. When your foundation is being laid in God, it does not matter where you are, you will do well. The whole world will look for you.
Having a solid foundation is having pillars. Let your pillars be Jesus Christ. When you have enough pillars you stand well, let me elaborate on the pillars. 1. One of the pillars you have is a pillar of prayer: but we will give ourselves continually to prayer. Acts 6:4. When you lay a foundation of prayer, you will be fruitful.
Laying a foundation of prayer in Jesus is going to be easy for you; you will have peace, joy, favour and many more.
Peter tried it and it worked for him. Jesus laid a foundation of prayer and it worked.
Mark 1:35 ‘’ and in the morning, rising up a great while before day, went out and departed into a solitary place and there, prayed…’’
Lay a foundation of a prayer for your children and your life and you and your household will do well.
2. Lay a foundation of good reputation/report. Acts 6:3 …look among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, which we may appoint over the business.
3. Lay a foundation of the Holy Ghost…full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, which we may appoint over this business. Acts 6:3
4. Lay a foundation of wisdom.
BLESSINGS OF LAYING A GOOD FOUNDATION OF PRAYER IN JESUS CHRIST:
1. You will be like a planted tree planted by rivers of waters and he shall be like a tree planted by the river of waters, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season. Psalm 1:3
You will flourish as life. Whatever you may do will end up well. You will not encounter failure in life.
2. They shall not test of time. …shall not stand in the judgment… john 10:2, psalms 1:5.
WHAT WILL CAUSE YOUR FOUNDATION TO STAND 1. Your prayer life must not stop. Daniel laid a foundation of prayer, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego also laid a foundation of prayer. If you will lay your foundation in God, you will not know poverty, shame, difficulties.
1. Peace col 1:21 2. Fellowship with God, 1 john 1:3, Isaiah 51:2, matt 26:28 3. Be saved (born again) 2. You will not fail or die before your time. …his leaf also shall not wither and whatever he doeth shall prosper. Your ministry will not fail before it time, your business will not fail before its time.
3. Anything you do shall stand and stand well. …anything and whatever he doeth shall prosper. Psalm 1:3.
THE FOUNDATION OF THE UNBELIEVER: 1. The unbeliever will fail quickly. The ungodly are not so; but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. psalm 1:4
They start nicely but for some time. The success of the unbeliever is not safe but full of suffering and depression. Please, do not fret over their riches, fret not yourself because of evil doers, neither be thou envious against the works of iniquity for they shall soon be cut down like the grass and wither as the green herb.
As a Christian, in order not to be like the ungodly, begin to start your day with Jesus. Lay a foundation of prayer in Jesus Christ.
Stop saying I did it, I am going, I take care of the children. I think now what you need to do is to look better when you say God did it, God will take me there, this is what you need to do. Begin everything with Jesus. Prayer: dear God, we pray to you to help us concerning our heart desires in Jesus’ name. Psalm 37:1-2 ‘’fret not thyself because of evil doers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall be cut down like the grass and wither like the green herb.’’ WEBSITE: WWW.JESUSFM921.COM EMAIL:POWERLIFEPROPHETICMINISTRIES@YAHOO.COM TEL: +233303930762

Their purpose and function is for “the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the son of God, to a perfect (“mature”) man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children (immature), tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine (“teaching”), by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up (mature) in all things into Him who is the head – Christ – from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love” (Ephesians 4:11-16, NKJV).
I DECLARE UNSTOPPABLE BLESSINGS ARE COMING MY WAY. I WILL MOVE FORWARD FROM BARELY MAKING TO HAVING MORE THAN ENOUGH. GOD WILL OPEN UP SUPERNATURAL DOORS FOR ME. HE WILL SPEAK TO THE RIGHT PEOPLE ABOUT ME.

Thus says the Lord: I am painting your life’s picture. I Am putting the details of your life into it. I know how it best fits for you. I Am rounding things off and harmonize them. Do not force anything. Let nothing stress you out. My hand moves the brush, putting the right color combination into your life. I Am drawing you in profile. I Am showing you how to live and walk in MY word. I Am placing you in front of situations and challenges, helping you with the outcome. Watch how I do it. Do not allow to let it bog you down. Learn to filter-out the negative. Recognize My ways of handling your challenges. MY wonders are hidden within your problem. MY victories are hidden within your fights. MY word has the answers to all your questions. Study MY word. Learn to know and understand Me even better through My written word. Do not doubt My revelations. If they were My promises, they will also come to pass. Were they not from Me, than I will hinder their fulfillment, for I only want your best. Do not allow for people to manipulate you. Prove the spirits. Stay steadfastly on My way.
DAY 11: 1. Thank God that the plans He has for you are for good and not for evil; ask Him to order your steps 2. Surrender your thoughts, words and actions to the Lord; ask Him to use your life to show forth His glory to the world 3. Pray for spiritual sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s leading; ask God to open your spiritual eyes and ears to His voice 4. Ask God to give you understanding into His word so that anytime you read the Bible, His light will shine on your paths Bible Verse: Psalm 119: 9-16
Thus says the Lord: You have to make decisions amongst inner conflict. You have many questions. You have a hard time to handle the many changes. You observe so much pain and suffering without having an answer for it. Know this! Mankind lives now in the “End-Times”. Everything is rushing toward the fulfillment. Look out for yourself and your salvation. Strengthen yourself in Me; become mature and grow in the inward man. Do not waste your time; use it to the best of your knowledge. Soon the doors of eternity are swinging open and the redeemed are going home. The time of the harvest is upon us. Become part of the harvesting team, helping Me to bring My harvest in.
Reap What You Sow Have you ever been guilty of speaking to your wife or children more harshly than anyone else? Some people think that I should be able to act like a feel around my family. I have to ask you to think about it. Is that fair? You are supposed to love them the most and yet you treat them like you love them the least. If you think about it, it is unfair. It is kind of like when you are driving in a car when someone pulls out in from of you. The driver yells at the other driver or curses him. Did it do any good for the bad driver with the windows closed and their backs turned? Only the person in the front seat was subject to that outburst. They didn’t do anything. Is that fair? Another thing I have to remind you of is that the harsh words that you might speak set your person into the course of action that line up with the words that you spoke. First of all, they have been proven scientifically that negative words and emotions are unhealthy for your physical body. Speaking your words in faith aloud is called framing your world. You will be building a frame for your actions as you become doers of the Word. Think about the harsh words that you are saying to those you love. Do you really want them all to come to pass? (Rom 4:17… and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Do you really believe them? Another thing is I have heard people say, well, they should love me, why should I have to work at being so polite around them? Please, that is a poor excuse. The ones that you love deserve your effort at politeness more than anyone else. If a man told you that he was madly in love with you, then said to you what a dumb idiot you are, would you believe that he was madly in love with you? We are instructed to live peaceably together. (Romans 12:18) If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Harsh Words stir up anger and begin wars. (Proverbs 15:1) A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.(Proverbs 15:2) The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness. Do you recall they story of Jacob and Esau? They sent greetings and gifts to Esau when he was coming to deal with Jacob for stealing his birthright. It was the soft answer that turned away wrath. It totally turned that situation around. It is important that we watch our words. (Ephesians 5:4) Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. Words are important. They are what we live according to. What you say is what you get. (Matthew 4:4) But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Corrupt=means impairment of integrity. When you allow your words to be corrupted, you impair your integrity. (Ephesians 4:29) Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. You are commanded to only allow good words come forth from your mouth which will be found good for the use of edification and minister only grace to those you hear it. Harsh words never help. When I was first married many years ago, the Lord led me to this scripture. (Ephesians 4:26) Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath. You see, you will have differences of opinion, but differences can be expressed without anger, harshness, or rudeness. And if you do find your temper rising, be sure to forgive each other before you go to bed. Do not ever let it hang on and hang on. Let it go. Anger which is left to fester will turn to bitterness. Unresolved anger between husband and wife can hinder prayers from being answered. (1 Peter 3:7) Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered. Acting on the

Beware of falling into religious structures; trust for an anointing to come forth that will overthrow all old structures that have stopped you in the past. Memorize and meditate on Isaiah 10:27.

Let Him prune away your sin teach you His ways daily in Jesus name. Reading John 15. DAY 2: 1. Pray for God’s Love for you without doubt. – The greatest demonstration of love the world has ever seen was when Jesus willingly died for us. His love not only can satisfy you, but also flow through you and make you a blessing to others. Reading John 15, Romans 5:8. 2. Ask God to make His plans clearer to you Proverbs 16:3. DAY 3: 1.

"Ask anything in MY NAME and I will do it!" Stop and celebrate over these verses. We must see a manifestation of the Lord and His Glory in our midst so we can see our future. To manifest means to reveal or cause something to shine or illuminate. The Lord is saying, "I will cause your way to shine!" Rejoice each day as you speak this word forth into your atmosphere. Read these verses three times a day. Don't stop at your last blessing, but keep looking for new manifestations of God's blessings in your life. Break any mindset that says, "This is all there is. I cannot see the Lord blessing me in new ways!" DAY 6: Read Matthew 24:32-36. Watch the NEW BUD that is coming forth! See what the fig tree teaches! How will what has dried up and not blossomed in the past begin to bear new fruit in your life? List on a sheet of paper what you wish to see blossom in your life. Review what has dried up and ask the Lord to show you a new "bud." Also read Isaiah 35 and Haggai 2. Be willing to be shaken and pressed so the latter glory will be greater than the former. Feel the weight and pressing of His glory that will produce the oil for your future.
Friends, there is absolutely no substitute to hearing and knowing the voice of God, and obeying whatever He says! That way opens to us a life of supernatural provision, direction and calling, that enables us to impact thousands of people with the truth and reality of Jesus flowing in and through us.
Foundations are all-important! The whole structure of life is determined according to how we build on the foundation. Success or failure is the direct result of what we do with the foundation Jesus has given us!
