Greetings in the trustworthy name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Word: Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:12 (NIV)
For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. 1 John 5: 4-5
Thought: Oh the wonders of prayer!
Abraham’s servant prays… Rebekah appears. Jacob wrestles and prays and prevails with Christ…Esau’s mind is wonderfully turned from the revengeful purpose he has harbored for twenty years. Moses cries to God…the sea divides. Moses prays…Amalek is discomfited. Joshua prays…Achan is discovered. Hannah prays…Samuel is born. David prays…Ahithophel hangs himself. Asa prays…a victory is gained. Jehoshaphat cries to God…God turns away his foes. Isaiah prays…the dream is revealed. Daniel prays…the lions are muzzled. Daniel prays…the seventy weeks are revealed. Ezra prays at Ahava… God answers. Nehemiah starts a prayer… the king’s heart is softened in a minute. Elijah prays… a drought of three years succeeds. Elijah prays… rain descends like lightning. Elisha prays… Jordan is divided, The church prays fervently… Peter is delivered by an angel.
The weapon of prayer against the forces of evil prevails. It brings power. It brings fire. It brings rain. It brings life. It brings God! There is no power of prevailing prayer.
Dare to be definite with God like the heroes of faith.
