We've GOT The Power...
When we humbly kneel in prayer, no evil force can even stand against us. It must crumble and disintegrate before the presence of Jehovah... As we yield and submit our hearts to God, humbling ourselves in intercession, He "takes over" the situations and circumstances around us and works them out for our good.
"Can you imagine the fighting going forth in the spirit realm for the people we are praying for?"
Now a lot of Christians are saying to me, "Hold On, the battle has already been won." My brother and sister, you can say that all day until you are blue in the face.. thinking that way and walking in defeat!! Do not be a hypocrite, for the enemy of your heart goes around roaring like a lion seeking "whoever" he may devour...That is for another blog at another time.
Our carnal minds are not capable to grasp in the flesh what is really going on behind the scenes. We have to see what is going on in the spirit realm by walking in the HOLY SPIRIT...
"I see a vision of a person yielded and humbled before God. I see a person kneeling before God. and I see a golden sword wielding around this person who is intently gazing upon the face of God. that person is intently praying for God to move... "
I just looked up the word wielding in the online dictionary and there are two really good definitions:
1. To handle (a weapon or tool, for example) with skill and ease.
2. To exercise (authority or influence, for example) effectively.
To handle our "weapon" we have been given effectively and skillfully, I believe that is when we are bowed before Jesus in prayer, for that is the greatest weapon against the forces of darkness in our lives. When we go forth into intercession before God we go as a well equipped soldier of the King exercising the authority we have been given in Jesus' name!!
The enemy would like nothing more than you and I "not" praying. I believe that is the one thing that he battles with us the most is to "Render us prayerless instead of prayerful."
Do you need more ammunition? Prayer is the key that unlocks the throne-room where our greatest weapons of warfare are found. Not only that but the vast riches that the Father God has given us as our inheritance.
I have been there and not been able to muster up a prayer, and at times struggle with not bringing every need before God. I can't preach to someone something I have not been through. I must confess I have been through many seasons where I did not pray, and the enemy wrecked havoc upon my life. Are you sincerely praying in the Spirit? Its time to start seeking to be filled with the Spirit of God, pouring out our hearts to the Father in Heaven!!
Saints, now is the time to "take a stand and bow before the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob," in humility and battle in the Spirit . I believe that is satan wants to blind us to this truth.
"Prayer is the greatest weapon you can use in your Christian life."
Whether or not you realize it my friends, you are in a spiritual war. God has anointed "you" to get the victory over the devil!!
The only hearts that will not become casualties of this spiritual war are those who are sold out to the King of Kings using our weapons to intercede like never before.
I pray that God gives us hearts that are so intensely focused in that force-field of intercession that nothing can penetrate our hearts. I pray that you are so full of the Holy Spirit, that you cannot keep silent..."and the things of this world will go strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace!"
