“When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” 1 Corinthians 13:11
As you pray, faith is at work; it accumulates strength, and will even move mountains if you let. However, today my warning to you is not to take it so hard if you believe that what you have asked for does not magically appear. Make your requests known with earnest prayer, and then be confident that you are heard-AND if you know that you are heard, then you must wait expectantly and graciously for the answer.
“14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” 1 John 5:14-15
HOW WE ADVANCE
“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.” Matthew 11:12
Never chastise the kingdom if what you want doesn’t instantly appear; there is an order to the workings and no amount of demanding will hurry it along. Your job is to stand before doubt & lack in defiance and speak forth positive words of power. The kingdom advances by force, and the praises of its people empower the advancement of anointing that fortifies the saints (you & me), to stem the scourge of the underworld and all its demonic workers of iniquity.
Reread the above paragraph & then ponder its meaning for a moment…
HERE’S THE NUGGET:
Put praise in your heart, and earnestly pray. Speak forth words of faith, for this is the shield that protects. Wait patiently, and you will see the answer arrive at its appointed time…step aside and favor will not find you.
Until next time,
Be mature in your faith and young in your heart 🙂
