Surely

Josh.14:6 “…Caleb said to Joshua, “Remember what the Lord said to Moses, the man of God, about you and me…”

 

God made a promise through Moses. Moses died. Caleb said, “The promise did not die, bring-it-on! Moses may die but the promise of God remains. Bring-it-on! Num.23:19 “God is not a man, so he does not lie. Read the rest of this entry

Persistent Promise

Psalm 89:1-2 (NRSV) “I will sing of your steadfast love, O Lord, forever; with my mouth I will proclaim your faithfulness to all generations. I declare that your steadfast love is established forever; your faithfulness is as firm as the heavens.”

 

My prayer for you this year is that God will do that which eyes have not seen, that which ears have not heard, and that which has not even begun to enter the hearts of men. And that the Name of Jesus alone will be glorified in your life, in Jesus Mighty Name. Read the rest of this entry

Confident Petition

Gen.32:24-26 “…Jacob was all alone in the camp, and a man came and wrestled with him until the dawn began to break. When the man saw that he would not win the match… the man said, “Let me go, for the dawn is breaking!” But Jacob said, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.”

God is saying to you and I, ‘don’t stop calling’. However, we have learnt that the first reason we stop calling is Lack or Loss of Burden. The second reason we stop calling is Lack or Loss of Knowledge. Read the rest of this entry

Audacious

Isa.62:7 “Give the Lord no rest until he completes his work, until he makes Jerusalem the pride of the earth.”

Mark 7:27Jesus told her, “First I should feed the children—my own family, the Jews. It isn’t right to take food from the children and throw it to the dogs.” Even after getting such a response from Jesus, Read the rest of this entry

Face It

Luke 11:10 (TPT) “Every persistent person will get what he asks for. Every persistent seeker will discover what he needs. And everyone who knocks persistently will one day find an open door.

We see in this passage of scripture how Jesus defines faith. Jesus defines faith as knocking on a door and staying there until the door opens. In fact, it is a lack of faith to knock on a door and back off. Read the rest of this entry

Tracking

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, Read the rest of this entry

Stay There!

Dan.10:12-13 “…Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, 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.”

Matt.6:8 (KJV) “Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.” This is another scripture that a lot of people struggle with when it comes to persistent prayer. Read the rest of this entry

Citizenship

Isa.62:6 “O Jerusalem, I have posted watchmen on your walls; they will pray day and night, continually. Take no rest, all you who pray to the Lord. 7 Give the Lord no rest until he completes his work, until he makes Jerusalem the pride of the earth.”

The widow kept asking not because the judge had not heard, but because the judge had not acted. We keep coming to God not because He has not heard, Read the rest of this entry

Keep Asking

Gen.32:28 (KJV) “And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.”

In Isaiah 38:1-5 [please read], all Isaiah did was to deliver God’s message, he did not even intercede for the king. Which is why you must have power with God. Read the rest of this entry

Look – Listen Up!

Rev.4:1 Then as I looked, I saw a door standing open in heaven, and the same voice I had heard before spoke to me like a trumpet blast. The voice said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must happen after this”.

 

We will continue to focus on the four things necessary for stepping up spiritually outlined in Revelations 4:1. Read the rest of this entry
