A Prayer of Power

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go. -Psalm 32:8

God is raising up an army of warriors that pray a very dangerous prayer, dangerous to the powers of darkness that is.  This prayer is so simple but yet so powerful.  The key to revival lies in three simple words:

Thy will be done

Pray it, mean it and yield to His will.  Watch God work in you and through you.  

Raise em up Lord!

Abundance of Rain

In California we’ve been experiencing a drought. Last winter we barely had any rain and even now that it’s November we have still yet to see much at all.  Through this literal drought I myself have experienced a spiritual drought.  It’s been a time of dryness, hiddness, aridity or whatever adjective you want to call it.  But what it comes down to is not a backslide, just a season where I have not been hearing from the Lord and experiencing His presence like I have in past seasons.  

Lately though, the weather is starting to change.  The weather experts are predicting massive rain fall this year and God is predicting the same spiritually.  There’s a stirring in my spirit that says an abundance of rain is coming! That is literal and spiritual rain. We’ve only had some light storms so far but God is speaking again and I expect this to build and build through the coming months.  So be of good cheer! There is a reason for every season… as cheesy as it sounds it’s true. God has not left you nor I. He’s been teaching us faith. Many great times of fullness of joy in His presence are on the forecast.  

“Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain.”” -‭‭I Kings‬ ‭18:41‬ ‭NKJV‬

Rest While You Wait

There are many seasons in walking with God where we are called to wait on Him.  His timeline often looks much different than ours.  If you’re in a season of waiting take advantage of this time and rest in Him.  Don’t fret.  Rest and wait patiently. He will carry out the good work He has begun in you to completion. 

Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him… -Psalm 37:7

We Change, He Remains the Same..

Because we change we often get a false theology that God changes.  We believe He changes His feelings toward us as we do toward Him.   We think one day we are close to God and another day we are far from Him.   We think one day He is mad and another day He is happy.  It’s just not true.  These thoughts are based on our own feelings which change daily as we go through an ever changing life. It is us who change, not Him.  He is the One constant we can always count on. 

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. -Hebrews 13:8

Lord grant me that no matter what my mood or feelings of the day may be, that I could be anchored in the truth of who You are. 

God is Love and no feeling, thought, anxiety or depression can change that. 

Have Faith

“Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you.”” ‭Matthew‬ ‭9:2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Faith activates the miraculous. The paralytic was healed because of his friends faith.  They had the faith that Jesus could heal him and brought him to Jesus.

“…then He said to the paralytic, “Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.” And he arose and departed to his house. Now when the multitudes saw it, they marveled and glorified God, who had given such power to men.”  Matthew‬ ‭9:6-8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

What if they had chosen the doubting route that day and stayed home?  

Have faith that God’s will may be done in and through your life. 

Life is Difficult

“Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”-‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7:14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Jesus never said life would be easy.  In fact He said difficult is the way which leads to life.  When we run into a difficult situation which seems impossible often our instinct is to run away, but the only running we should be doing is straight to God for help.  This is living by faith.  When we turn to Him in impossible situations He works through us and makes them possible.  David did not run from Goliath. 

“Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” -‭‭I Samuel‬ ‭17:45‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
