When You Come

Psalm 27:7-8 “Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud; Be gracious and compassionate to me and answer me. When You said, “Seek My face [in prayer, require My presence as your greatest need],” my heart said to You, “Your face, O Lord, I will seek [on the authority of Your word].” (AMP)

To have power with God and man, the first thing is, you have to Learn To Pray By Yourself Without Relying On Someone Else To Pray For You. The second thing is, you have to Pray To Your Heavenly Father And Not To Anyone Else. 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

About Tongues, I

Eph.6:18 “Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.”

There is no way you can pray at all times if you do not pray in the Holy Spirit. If you are not baptized in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues, I pray that you will open your heart to the Holy Spirit today and He will fill you to the overflowing. Read the rest of this entry

The Practice

James 5:17 “Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.” (KJV)

Once we understand prayer and we can stay in the place of prayer, we can look at an Ahab and like Elijah say, ‘There will be no rain except at my word’. You lock the heavens, put the key in your pocket and you go for a stroll. Read the rest of this entry

His Ways

Isaiah 55:8-9 “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.”

1 Sam.17:49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.” (KJV, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

Be Present!

Phillip.2:8 “He humbled himself and became vulnerable, choosing to be revealed as a man and was obedient. He was a perfect example, even in his death—a criminal’s death by crucifixion!” (TPT).

To get up and to walk in resurrection power, to be all that we were made to be, to arise and to shine in the brightness that God has made for us, firstly we must know the Living Jesus, that Jesus Christ is alive. Secondly, we must know the King Jesus, that Jesus Christ is King. Read the rest of this entry

Significant Turn

Ps.126:4 “Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the south.” (KJV)

Different events trigger turning points. In the life of a prophet called Isaiah, God had to take away king Uzziah for Isaiah to experience his turning point and for Isaiah to see properly [please read Isaiah 1:6-8]. Read the rest of this entry

Invaluable

1 Chr.21:24 “David replied to Araunah, “No. I’m buying it from you, and at the full market price. I’m not going to offer God sacrifices that are no sacrifice. I will not present burnt offerings that have cost me nothing!” (MSG & NLT)

From the way David carried the Ark of God into Jerusalem in 2 Samuel 6 [please read], we can see what true worship really is. True worship happens When I Take Extreme Measures To Do It Right. Read the rest of this entry

Man’s Way vs. God’s Way

Mark 7:7-8 “Their worship is a farce, for they teach man-made ideas as commands from God.’ For you ignore God’s law and substitute your own tradition.”

John 9:16 “Some of the Pharisees said, “This man Jesus is not from God, for he is working on the Sabbath…” (emphasis added). It is interesting that as part of their laws, the Pharisees actually forbade spitting on the Sabbath. Read the rest of this entry

Found To Find

John 4:28-29The woman left her water jar beside the well and ran back to the village, telling everyone, “Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could he possibly be the Messiah?”

The Psalmist said in Ps.84:10A single day in your courts is better than a thousand anywhere else! I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God than live the good life in the homes of the wicked.” (emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry
