Take your walk with God seriously!
So much depends on our walk with God than we actually realise. God is a giver (John 3:16; 16:15) and any revelation or insight He gives us would benefit us massively. More importantly though, it would benefit others.
Last week, I learnt a practical and important lesson on the power of the prayer of agreement based on Matthew 18:19:
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
JESUS wasn’t lying when He said that, it really works! 😃
Reeling off the miraculous testimony God gave me that faithful morning as a result of the prayer of agreement, I pondered why I had to go through such. I later on understood why when a cousin who was in desperate need of help called me in tears by night. My faith level was on a high, as I had shared what God had done for me that morning with at least two people then and was awestruck! I assured her that God would make a way, and we brought the situation before God in prayer with my Mum, produced our case before God based on His Word (Isaiah 41:21:43:26), declared our expectation and stayed in faith as we waited to hear the good news. Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! (Psalm 34:8; Hebrews 6:5)
By the power of the prayer of agreement, God turned her situation to a testimony and I was humbled to be a part of the process. What took two months trying to resolve, God got it fixed within a matter of hours via the power of knowing your rights as a child of the kingdom and the prayer of agreement!
Prayer, in agreement with God’s Word – His will – and offered up in faith ALWAYS gets answered!
As Kenneth E Hagin says, “Faith begins where the will of God is known.”
1 John 5:14-15
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
I share this to re-emphasise my earlier point, TAKE YOUR WALK WITH GOD SERIOUSLY!
So much depends on it that is beyond you. Oh, makes me wonder how many miracles of people you and I have carried, that have been missed due to carelessness, ignorance or insensitivity to the Holy Spirit; when we couldn’t be bothered to get out of bed to pray, read the Word, go to ‘Church’ or listen to that Word teaching on a topic or subject we need clarity about.
There’s no point crying over spilled milk though, LET’S MOVE FORWARD! Let’s resolve to be vessels of honour unto God (2 Timothy 2:20-21) and allow our Heavenly Father to use us as channels of His blessings towards others. God gave us His best, JESUS, He deserves NOTHING less in return.
Yep, we’re all learning but let’s resolve to grow more in maturity in God everyday of our lives.
Father, help us to daily present our lives as living sacrifices to You, be ever sensitive to Your voice, and represent You adequately in all situations and circumstances; may our lives count for You Lord and help us to all do our roles in seeing Your kingdom established on earth, as it is in heaven in JESUS name, amen.
A very helpful mini-book on prayer that I recommend is called “Prayer Secrets” by Kenneth E Hagin. Can be read in one sitting and so full of the truth of God’s Word and illustrations on prayer.
God bless you,
