    4. Love. (John 4:8, 16). Agape, the love that is part of the essence
    of God, in nothing like the love that man produces.
    God's love is part of eternal Being and thus can never be increased,
    diminished, or changed.

    Long before God created anything, love existed among the three Persons
    of the Trinity. The love that God extends to man is an impersonal love in
    the sense that it is not based on the goodness or integrity of the person
    who is the object of love, but on the goodness and integrity of God.

    God does not love us because of who we are, but because of who He is.
    The love of God extended to man is not an emotion or a feeling. It is a
    divine passion for the ultimate good of men. It is not passive; it is not
    passive; it is active. It is not casual; it is sacrificial. God's love is
    exemplified in John 3:16 and Romans 5:8. God Himself was the initiator;
    He made the ultimate sacrifice not for those who were eager and ready
    to know and serve Hi, but for those in rebellion, for enemies. If we
    understand this love of God, we know that no matter how lonely or
    isolated or forsaken we may feel, God loves us. If God is love, then
    whatever happens to us is an expression of His love (Eph. 2:4; John 3:1; 4:9,16).

    5. Eternal Life (1Tim. 1:17). God always has existed and always will exist.
    He is the source of all life. He is not subject to time, because He existed
    before time was and is, in fact, the inventor of time. Therefore, God always
    sees everything from the eternal perspective. He always has our welfare in
    view, not only for time but also for eternity. If we understand this, we can
    be thankful under any circumstances because we know absolutely that
    God is working for our eternal good (Ps. 111:3; Isa 9:6; 2Pet. 3:8).

    6. Omniscience (1John 3:20). All knowledge belongs to God. He knows
    everything past, present, and future, everything actual and everything
    possible. He also understands all things. He has known and understood
    everything forever. He cannot be confused or surprised. Nothing is news
    to God. If we understand that God is omniscient, then we will always
    know that a wisdom greater than our own is in control of circumstances
    and situations. We will always know where to go with our questions
    and problems (Job 42:2; Pc. 139:3; Rom. 8:27; Heb. 4:13).

    7. Omnipotence (Rev. 19:6) God is infinitely, awesomely powerful.
    He is able to accomplish anything that He wills, but He never abuses
    His power and He never wills to accomplish anything contrary to His
    holy nature. If we understand this, then we need never doubt His
    ability to keep His promises, to answer our prayers, or to carry out His
    plan. We can be thankful in the face of our own weakness, because we
    know His strength (Gen. 18:14; Job 26:14; Ps. 62:11; Isa. 26:4; Col 1:11).

    8. Omnipresence (Jer. 23:24). god is always in all places. He fills the entire
    universe. This means He can see and hear everything all the time and is
    always present in every circumstance of our lives. Because God is
    Omnipotent and omnipresent and independent of time, He always has time
    for everyone. He can give full attention to each of us as if we were the
    only person on earth. If we understand this, then we know with absolut
    certainty that we are never alone, never outside the sphere of His care
    (Ps. 139:3,7-10; Prov. 15:3).

    9. Immutability (Heb. 13:8). God has never changed and will never change.
    He can neither increase nor decrease. His essence and attributes will
    always remain the same, no matter what. If we understand this, then we can rest
    in the fact that no matter how inconsistent or unstable or undependable we are,
    God will always be consistent, stable, dependable. When we feel like He no longer
    loves us or does not understand us or cannot help us, we can ignore our feelings
    because we know the fact of His immutability (Mal. 3:6; Heb. 1:12; James 1:17).

    10. Veracity (Ps. 33:4). Because God is truth itself, He always acts in veracity
    ("devotion to the truth" or "truthfulness") and in faithfulness toward man.
    Because it is impossible for God to lie, we know that His every word to us is true.
    The Bible is God's revelation of truth to man. We can always depend on His
    Word.
    If we know that God is true and that His Word is true, and if we claim His
    promises, then the essence of God will become a source of encouragement
    to us. We will be able to pray in faith, to pray without ceasing, and to pray
    with thanksgiving (Num. 23:19; Ps. 57:3; 100:5; 119:160).
    Всегда будь уверен, что мы здесь всего лишь
    странники в выбранном нами пути, но есть для
    нас Путь, Который не молчит на каждом нашем
    шагу, есть Дверь Призывающая без мёртвых для
    нас запоров и в этом есть Жизнь на всегда.

    Energized Prayer
    Prayer is like a lamp. We can turn it on and off, on and off, but it
    it is not plugged in to the power source, it it is not energized,
    nothing will happen. Every prayer we pray is either energized,
    or it is not. When it is, we are letting loose an earthshaking power.

    James 5:16 tells us that "the effective prayer of a righteous man
    can accomplish much." A better translation of that would be:
    "the energized prayer of any believer has great power." The word
    "effective" comes from energeo, the root of our word "energy," it
    means "to energize." The word "accomplish" is ischuos, the
    strongest of five Greek words for power. In means "applied power,
    demonstrated power." God will demonstrate His power through
    the energized prayer of His children.

    The "righteous man" is anyone who has been imputed with the
    righteousness of Jesus Christ. Because we are in Christ, we have
    access to God 24 hours a day for the rest of our lives (Heb. 4:16).

    In James 5:17, the Lord's brother reinforces the principle that
    anyone's prayers can be powerful when he says the "Elijah,
    was a man with a nature like ours." That is an extremely important
    little statement. It tells us that the prophet Elijah, known among
    Jews for his phenomenal prayer power and prayer ministry, was a
    natural human being. He had a sin nature; he struggled with areas
    of weakness; he knew what it was like to sin and to fail. But his
    prayer power was not based on anything in Elijah; it was based on
    God.

    So, how can we "energize" our prayer? Every time we stop to pray,
    we should ask ourselves two questions:
    1. Am I in fellowship (Eph. 6:18)? Sin throws up a barrier between
    God and us and short-circuits our prayer (Isa. 59:2).
    Self-examination and confession removes the barrier and restores
    us to fellowship (1John 1:9; 3:21-22). If we have unconfessed sins
    in our lives, if we are not filled with the Spirit, our prayers are works
    of the flesh and have absolutely no power.

    2. Am I praying according to the will of God (John 15:7; 1John 5:14-15)?
    How do we pray according to his will? We have to know His Word. Lack of
    study will rob us to the ability to pray effectively. Jesus said that whatever
    we ask in faith, we will receive. But what is "faith"?
    In is response to God's Word. We cannot ask for something in faith unless
    the Word of God declares that what we ask is the will of God. When we
    know the Word and our will is in line with His will, then our prayer will be
    powerful prayer.

    Paul tells us in Colossians 4:2 to devote ourselves to prayer, "keeping
    alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving." There are five dangers to
    which we should be alert:
    Failure to confess (Isa. 59:2),
    failure to study (John 15:7),
    failure to obey (1John 3:22; 1Pet. 3:7),
    failure to ask according to God's will (1John 5:14-15),
    and infiltration of personal lusts (James 4:2-3).

    If we are alert to those dangers and can say "yes" to those two
    questions, we can pray in faith-rest, knowing that what we ask
    will be done in God's perfect time. Jesus Himself said in John 15:7,
    "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you
    wish, and it shall be done for you."
    Всегда будь уверен, что мы здесь всего лишь
    странники в выбранном нами пути, но есть для
    нас Путь, Который не молчит на каждом нашем
    шагу, есть Дверь Призывающая без мёртвых для
    нас запоров и в этом есть Жизнь на всегда.

    "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you
    wish, and it shall be done for you."

    If you wish the reality, ask Him for that without counting what's known to you.
    He knows much more and what you need first of all to be real in your life.
