No Formula ~ Just Relationship With The Father!


God is a Father and He does not work in formulas!

God works in relationship.

If there is no relationship with Papa, all of your formulas will only be manipulation and He does not respond to manipulation!

We have been teaching formulas in the body of Christ when we should have been teaching relationship and trust.

God is forever changing.  For example, the way He heals people, in other words.

He had rubbed mud in someone’s eyes and one woman had to touch the hem of his garment.

If we had been around in those days, we would of had the “FIRST CHURCH OF THE RUB MUD IN YOUR EYES FELLOWSHIP”

In other words, we try to take a formula and make a religion out of it!

And so it is with our giving I believe.  We try and do these formulas that people on TV advocate and it isn’t working for us.

But God is impressing me today, that we must go back to relationship and obedience as we trust God, not our formulas!

No Formula ~ Just Relationship With The Father! — 3 Comments

  1. This article is correct in saying that we do not need to use formulas but understand that God is about relationship. But this statement…God is forever changing… is not true. The word tells us that God does not change…He is the same yesterday, today and forever. We must be constantly learning the way God is and has always been. Just because it is new for us does not mean God has changed. For He does not. It is simply new for us. Psalm 55:19 God, who is enthroned from of old,
    who does not change… Leading people to believe that God changes can open dangerous doors for those less mature in faith.

    • Rebecca, we know God doesn’t change, but God might not heal you the same way He healed me. He is such an omnipotent God and we cannot put Him in a box. Just as one person is not the same and have not been created the same and have a unique fingerprint, so every situation is different, therefore every person’s testimony is different and our walk with God is different from another.

  2. So so so true!!!!!  So many preachers confuse the people today by complicating the Word of God. This is how you need to pray and that you must do to get results etc. They once again have laid so many burdens on the church Christ, and people are buying more books, running to this preacher and that preacher because they are scared they miss something they had to do to not miss the mark. And yes, we fell trap to these preachers as we do not have a relationship with God our Father.
