Psalm 27:14 (TPT) “Here’s what I’ve learned through it all: Don’t give up; don’t be impatient; be entwined as one with the Lord. Be brave and courageous, and never lose hope. Yes, keep on waiting—for he will never disappoint you!
Daniel could remain in the place of prayer and not get discouraged because he understood how the spiritual works. Sometimes you do not need to know what is going on, you just know how it works and,operate it. How many of you know how your phone works? Do you know the radio frequency it uses? Do you know the operating system that is running on your phone? Do you know the amount of code that went into getting your phone to work? You have no clue, but you just dial, and you talk. Do you need to know how it works for you to use it? The same thing with the supernatural, just know how it works and, operate it.
See your prayer as tracking a package. Imagine ordering something from an online store that is to be delivered in location F. You are issued a tracking number to help you track the package. Day one, the package is on course. It was shipped out and moved from location A to location B. By day two, the package is now in location D, it is making progress. Then on the third day, you see the package has moved to location K. Something has gone wrong, you flag it immediately. God wants us to understand that there are different kinds of prayer. The disciples of Jesus came to Jesus with a concern. Jesus, You taught us what to do in deliverance 101, so how come we could not cast out this demon. Jesus responded, “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.” (Matt. 17:21, KJV). There is a kind that will not shift until you lock down and blast it through. The reality of life is that there are situations that require more prayer. So, when you face a situation, you should ask which kind is this?
Start with gear one; if on gear one you are making progress, but you are not there yet, what should you do? Change it to gear two. If on gear two it is still in progress but no destination in sight, then change to gear three. If gear three delivers progress but not the desired results, then change to gear four. If you used up all your gears and you are not where you want to be, what should you do? Keep pressing on the throttle, keep moving. One misconception that folks have is, if I have faith, once I ask, I do not need to ask again, just thank God. Well, there is a place for that. If that is what the Holy Spirit tells you to do, please do it. But if that is not what God has told you to do, you better keep knocking on that door.
Prayer: Father, You alone are my strength, my confident hope, the One I put my trust in, and the answer to my petitions. Teach me how to maneuverer, in Jesus Name. Amen!
