Y’all, I kinda read this verse that says: “Pray without ceasing…”
Ceasing or Season? Doesn’t matter – Rain, Shine, Blizzard, Monsoon, Winter, Summer…Whenever!
God is ALWAYS there!
And you know what? He listens AND acts when we ask in faith, realizing fact!
Our Father, Who are in Heaven praises we bring to Your Essence.
Y’all be careful when you pray this “On Earth as it is in Heaven.” Really? How is it in Heaven? EVERYTHING is according to God’s will! It is His Home.
Check this oft missed fact:
What was NOT done in Heaven? Think hard on this!
If Satan lived in God’s presence, how could he think he could defeat God? The clear biblical answer is pride. Pride can cause a person to view situations in an unrealistic manner, as was the case with Satan: “You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God I will set my throne on high; I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far reaches of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High'” (Isaiah 14:13-14).
Ezekiel 28:15-16 speak about Satan’s fall as well: “You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created, till unrighteousness was found in you. In the abundance of your trade you were filled with violence in your midst, and you sinned.” These verses note Satan’s fall included unrighteousness, violence, and sin. In his pride, Satan chose evil, sought to overthrow God from His throne, and sinned in the process.
Another reason Satan may have thought he could defeat God was because of his own greatness. Ezekiel 28:12-14 offer the following description of Satan prior to his fall: “You were the signet of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, sardius, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, emerald, and carbuncle; and crafted in gold were your settings and your engravings. On the day that you were created they were prepared. You were an anointed guardian cherub. I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; in the midst of the stones of fire you walked.”
The New Testament also clearly notes the great power Satan has. Jude 1:9 states the archangel Michael did not want to oppose him: “But when the archangel Michael, contending with the devil, was disputing about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a blasphemous judgment, but said, ‘The Lord rebuke you.'” John 12:31 calls Satan the “ruler of this world.”
In addition to his power, Satan is also intelligent. He was deceptive enough to deceive Eve in the Garden of Eden. However, his intelligence to oppose humans is limited by God’s permissive will. For example, God allowed Satan to tempt Job, but placed limitations on what Satan could do (Job 1:7-12). Satan also tempts believers today, even tempting Jesus for 40 days in the desert, though unsuccessfully.
Of course, the ultimate reason for Satan’s rebellion is evil. He holds the power of death (Hebrews 2:14-15) and harms God’s people (2 Corinthians 12:7). His end, however, is one of doom. The Bible clearly predicts Satan’s final defeat (Luke 10:18; John 12:31), with his reign ending in the lake of fire with eternal torment apart from God (Revelation 20:10).
I am moved to share this. When you pray, PRAY! You in asking shall recieve understanding:
“The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law.
‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
1 Corinthians 2:10
He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him
What is unknown for lack of desire to know, shall be known! We as believers see things through a ‘frosted glass window.’
“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”
1 Corinthians 13:13
Y’all this is ENORMOUSLY informative! We ARE known!
We were created! And BEFORE we were born we were known! Each is placed right where they are for reason. We may not understand why; but there is a reason!
We have shared on this earlier. Find YOUR reason! Pour yourself into it and be blessed as you do WHAT you were made to do.
Again, this is very deep! You have a REASON! Care to share? Or, I will ask “Do you know it yet?”
We ask God to bless us with “daily bread”. What is that?
To get straight to the point it is shared in the link above. But, for those without ‘time’, is it ‘grub’? Not grub alone, but spiritual provision.
This will knock your socks off!
“Forgive me, my trespasses as I forgive those who trespass against me.”
Really? Holding a grudge? Your sins are NOT forgiven!
This floors me! God IS Love!!! You are forgiven despite the fact that you did nothing to earn it!!
GET YOUR HEART RIGHT WITH GOD AND PEOPLE
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness
(1 John 1:9).
Ask God to check your heart and motives. Receive His forgiveness for any area that He brings to mind.
Forgive anyone who has offended you in any way. You can even forgive people in advance.
“…And do not lead us into temptation but deliver us from the evil one…”
ENGAGE IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms Ephesians 6:12.
Take your stand against the enemy and fight the good fight of faith. Every lie that the enemy has told you should be replaced with the truth of God’s Word.
“…For yours is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory forever.”
EXPRESS FAITH IN GOD’S ABILITY
“Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the Heavens and the Earth by Your great power and outstretched Arm. Nothing is too hard for you” (Jeremiah 32:17).
End your prayer time by reminding yourself what you must do to be blessed; and be b!
