Prayer

Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.
James 5:17-18


Prayer is the key to conforming ourselves to His image when the fires of life threaten to consume us. Only prayerful fellowship with God will always see us through and give us direction.

We are besieged daily by thoughts that try to sway us and situations that require God’s wisdom to move in His ways. Prayer is our lifeline. Elijah prayed and rain came; Moses prayed and the rock gushed water. Prayer has provided hundreds of people with miracles, even today! “Pray without ceasing,” says 
1 Thessalonians5:17.

Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”

You shall not be afraid

You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. (Psalm 91:5-6, New King James Version)




No fear! If we are abiding in the "Secret Place" there He will cover us with His feathers and not even terrorists or criminals, flaming arrows from the evil one or sickness and disease or any other pestilence or perils will be able to come near us. 

It is impossible for any of that to come into contact with God Almighty, but we can!  We can abide in His "Secret Place" and we can dwell in His shadow because He has given us mercy and grace through the Blood of Jesus. But we must come through Jesus as He has freed us of sin. We must come washed in the blood of Jesus. We can come no other way!

My prayer is: Dear God may I become the person you want me to be, no shadow of fear should be in my life!

Receive the promise of the Spirit through faith

Galatians 3:13-14 (New King James Version)

13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”[a]), 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Footnotes:
  1. Galatians 3:13 Deuteronomy 21:23


Just for this reason alone (His promises to us) we should live a glorious life, praising God for His plan for our life!

Read aloud the words of Christ

Romans 10:17 says, “Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.” 


And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.
Hebrews 11:6



Do you have faith that God is, and that He rewards those who seek Him? Do you believe in an infinite God? Do you just know about God or do you know Him personally…intimately?

What you believe will affect your ability to get your prayers answered. It will also determine if you can set the enemy to flight or if the devil will dictate your life.

Faith in God is the only way to receive from Him: “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).

Paul makes it clear that faith pleases God. If you have been doubting the reality of God…if you have been wondering if everything that is in the Bible is true…if you have been questioning “what if”—it is time for you to re-dig your well of faith.
