Read God’s written word.
If you are to serve God successfully and obtain your crown in Heaven, then you must read God’s written word on a daily basis.
Everything you preach must be based on God’s written word in the Bible. Sometimes inquisitive persons will ask you where you got the information you are preaching. You will simply tell them that you got it from the Bible.
Secondly, as God’s servant, you must live according to some set standard. This standard is the written word of God in the Bible.
A servant of God fights many spiritual and physical battles. The only way you can win these battles is through a life of prayer.
Pray as soon as you get out of your bed, pray before you leave your home, pray before you do anything, pray at mid-day, pray at sunset, pray before you go to bed, and pray at midnight.
When you live a life of prayer, God will always send you his angels to bless you and fight your battles.
When you become a servant of God, then you become an enemy of the devil together with demons. There are some demonic attacks you may never overcome except if you are fasting.
Read carefully this passage from the book of Mark to understand the power of fasting:
“When Jesus saw that the people came running together,
He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it,
“Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!”
Then the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and came out of him. And he became as one dead,
so that many said, “He is dead.” But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose.
And when He had come into the house, His disciples asked Him privately,
“Why could we not cast it out?” So He said to them,
“This kind can come out by nothing but prayer [a]and fasting.”
Mark 9:29 New King James Version
“You must do these three things” Jesus tells all God’s servants.
