The Anchor

Col.2:7 “Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.”

To occupy until Jesus comes, you first have to take the territory and secondly, be planted. Every Christian should be planted in a local church. There is nothing like a floating or a roving Christian. It does not exist, check the Bible. Read the rest of this entry

Voice Plug

Dan.10:12-14 “…Since the first day you began to pray… your request has been heard in heaven… I have come in answer to your prayer. But for twenty-one days the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia blocked my way. Then Michael, one of the archangels, came to help me…”

When was the answer released? Immediately but when did Daniel receive it? Twenty-one days later. What do you think would have happened if Daniel did not tarry in the place of prayer insisting on an answer? Read the rest of this entry

Compassion

Rom. 15:2 “We should all be concerned about our neighbor and the good things that will build his faith.” (GW, emphasis added)

Our first lesson from the friends of the paralytic man in Mark 2:1-12 [please read] is they had compassion. These four friends became concerned for a hurting friend. Most times, people are just not concerned. Read the rest of this entry

Your Move

Rom.10:15 “And how can they hear if nobody tells them? And how is anyone going to tell them, unless someone is sent to do it? That’s why Scripture exclaims, A sight to take your breath away! Grand processions of people telling all the good things of God!” (MSG)

I pray that because you have come into the presence of God today, that God will breathe on you and teach you His Word by Himself. I pray that God will change your life and take you higher still. I also pray that what God needs to do in this season will be clear to you in Jesus Mighty Name. Read the rest of this entry

Power To Prevail

Hosea 12:3-4 “He took his brother by the heel in the womb, and by his strength he had power with God: Yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept, and made supplication unto him: he found him in Bethel, and there he spake with us” (KJV).

We are still on our meditation on prayer. So far, we have looked at the effectiveness of prayer, the different types of prayer, and praying in tongues. Have you seen from afar or experienced in your life something being changed literally by prayer? Our focus for the next few days is on having power, Read the rest of this entry

Place Of Burden

Luke 22:44 “He prayed more fervently, and he was in such agony of spirit that his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood.”

Years ago, my Pastor at that time had this routine of praying from Saturday night into Sunday morning, and from the prayer room, he goes to preach. One day, he invited me and a friend of mine to pray with him. Read the rest of this entry

Never Stop

Romans 8:26 “A similar thing happens when we pray. We are weak and do not know how to pray, so the Spirit steps in and articulates prayers for us with groaning too profound for words.” (Voice)

We began to explore the mysteries of prayer yesterday and the first is, Mysteriously It Seems That God Will Not Act Unless We Pray. How can the creator of the Heavens and the earth be limited to the prayers of a mortal man? Read the rest of this entry

Why Pray?

Luke 11:9-10 “…keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Why do we pray? We pray because God commands us to pray. We pray because prayer empowers us to resist temptation. We pray because we depend on God. We pray because we love Him. We pray because God loves us. Read the rest of this entry

It Is Time

John 4:10 “Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.”

How have you been responding to Jesus? The Samaritan woman got the gift God had for her and got to know who she was speaking to because she chose to be vulnerable. It is easy to look at this Samaritan woman and call her different names. But the question remains, Read the rest of this entry

DIY

James 4:10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.” (emphasis added).

For the next couple of days, we are going to be looking at an aspect of God’s heart for us. And when we let this aspect of God’s heart flow in us and flow through us, nothing will be impossible for us. Read the rest of this entry
