Laying hold of the Willingness of God

There is one word about prayer that makes the entire experience meaningful. It is the bedrock of what prayer is all about, firmly anchored in the character of God. Take it away and the worshiper is flooded with doubt. Take it alway and prayers hit the ceiling and bounce back. Take it away and the prayer life is sapped of all its enjoyment. This one word makes prayer possible. This one word brings the worshiper back again and again. This one word assures the worshiper that God hears and longs to answer. This one word causes prayer to soar to nights unknown This one word is the anchor for all the promises of God. #WILLINGNESS Martin Luther said it best: #prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance. It is laying hold of His willingness. — Walter Bright (@WaltBright) January 23, 2015 Everything is covered Salvation “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Luke 12:32 Healing “And a leper came to him, imploring him, and kneeling said to …

Victory in the face of Opposition

One of the fundamental truths about the kingdom of God, the church or believers is that that kingdom, church, the believer always seems to thrive or triumph or win even in the midst of intense opposition. Jesus left us these promises – He said: “I will build my church and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.” “The Kingdom of God shall advance and the voilent shall take it by force.” “If God is for us who can be against us?” Nehemiah reminds us in chapter 4 about a few things we need to do when faced with opposition.  And I looked and arose and said to the nobles and to the officials and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes.” When our enemies heard that it was known to us and that God had frustrated their plan, we all returned to the wall, each to …

Jabez, a man of travail

There are levels in prayer that we will never know until pain becomes a friend. Jabez was more honorable than his brothers; and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” 1 Chronicles 4:9 The name Jabez is a name associated with pain. He got his name from his mother while she labored in pain to bring him forth. Being a man of prayer, himself, I believe the knowledge of that experience left an indelible mark on Jabez’s life. It opened his eyes to see and understand something much deeper about prayer. He understood that nothing of immense value comes about without pain, suffering, hard work and travailing prayer. The birth of a child “Whenever a woman is in labor she has pain because her hour has come; but when she gives birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy that a child has been born into the world.” John 16:21 The deliverance of a nation “This is what Hezekiah says: This day is …

Pray like Jabez Prayed

Jabez ‘Called’ and God granted. The word call carries the idea of a heartfelt, passionate prayer. This kind moves us beyond the laid back, lackadaisical prayers we are often guilty of. Scripture says, “He rewards those who diligently seek Him.” May He grant you clarity of vision this next season.
