FORGE YOUR FUTURE
The Transforming Power of Prayer
October 9, 2021
Today it would seem that the entire world stands in desperate need of Divine Intervention during these dark and dangerous days of one disaster after another.
Our greatest weapon to combat the darkness is prayer! We must grasp the need to cry out to Almighty God for transforming power.
Beloved, never doubt the prayers of the Saints are awesome in power. Almighty God has given us the authority to bind and the power to set free. Only as we join in prayer following the pattern released in 2 Chronicles 7:14 can we expect to see Divine Intervention.
“If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14 AMPC
First and foremost is we must humble ourselves. Scripture is clear “God resists the proud.” We are clearly instructed to: Submit to God, Resist the Devil.
Likewise, you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another and be clothed with humility, for
“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.”
Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.
1 Peter 5:5-6 NKJV
Scripture states we have not because we ask not (see James 4:2-3).
Through Prayer, God Reveals Mighty Things
‘Call to Me, and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV
Another translation of this passage reminds us that God has mighty wonderful things hidden away for us when we are willing to pray them into our present.
Call to Me, and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).
Jeremiah 33:3 AMPC
Yes, it is true God does hide things from us for us.
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, but the glory of kings is to search out a thing.
Proverbs 25:2 AMPC
Now is the time to unlock the true treasures of God. These are generational blessings.
The secret things belong unto the Lord our God, but the things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all of the words of this law.
Deuteronomy 29:29 AMPC
Scripture states, “make-up your mind what you want, tell God what that is, and He will get it for you.”
You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you, and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways.
Job 22:28 AMPC
You shall decide - “make-up your mind.”
You shall decree - “tell God what it is.”
It shall be established for you!
Beloved, we can do nothing more powerful than praying! God bless you and your family (see Psalms 115:14-15).
During these days, keep your focus upon Christ the King. He is the Prince of Peace. Only as we keep our eyes and heart firmly focused upon the King of Glory do we have this perfect peace and tranquility (see Isaiah 26:3). Never forget it is the God of Peace that crushes the devil under our feet. (see Romans 16:20).
