The mystery of powerful prayers.

 The quality of our prayer is dependent on how much of God’s word is inclusive in our prayer. We are commanded to always pray, Luke 18:1. Why! Because spiritual battles are consistent and never ending, we are of the view that if things are good the invisible war (spiritual war) is done. No my friend, this thinking can be deadly and at best misleading.

Our weapons become even more powerful when we pray the scriptures. Scripture says, "The word of God is quicker, powerful and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing and dividing asunder of soul and spirit and of the joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" Heb. 4:12.  Now you tell me what earthly weapon can do such a thing?

Usually when I pray I imagine while I am praying the word as a sword being wield and inflicting  damage in the world that we cannot see but very much exist. No wonder why God said to remind him of his word. Not that he had forgotten his word, but that we must use it to cause more damage in the spirit world. So even though we’re praying words those words become weapons.

Let us look at another scripture, James 5:13-15, isn’t it interesting when James said that if any among you are afflicted let him pray James 5:13? However in James 5:15 he not only speak of prayer but the prayer of FAITH!

Now, as a reminder, God said that it is impossible to please him without faith, Hebrews 11:6, so clearly faith is a necessity as it relates to our prayers, but what is faith? Well guess what? Faith is God’s word. Scripture tells us that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God, Romans 10:17. So if faith comes by hearing and what one is hearing must be the word of God, then it is clear that faith is the word of God.

I beg you on this wonderful morning, read the scriptures frequently so that you would have no problem retrieving the word when it is time to pray. I have found it to be most effective. In praying the word you are literally coming in agreement with God's word and according to scripture (Hebrews. 11:6) this is what pleases him.

Words of wisdom: What do you see?Because It will determine what you do.

If perception ultimately determine our actions, then we must manage or control what we are perceiving in our environments in order to produce the action we desire. Scripture tell us, "As we think in our hearts it is those thoughts that we become" Proverbs 23:7. The outcome of our day is not dependent on people, events or things but on the sole concept as to how we perceive these things that will ultimately determine our response to them.

Words of wisdom by: Minister Kevin L A Ewing

We are not Grasshopper in their sight!

I am a firm believer that our perception about anything will determine our actions towards it. Perception in its condense form, is the mental images, ideas, and thoughts that we produce when calculating or forming an opinion about someone or something.

Unfortunately, our perceptions are seldom based on facts but for the most part whatever it is that we perceive. Therefore if our actions are to be positive or negative, its origin will always be found in the foundation of our perception of whatever it is we are responding to.

The ten of the twelve spies that went to spy out the land of Canaan said to the children of Israel upon their return, “We were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight”, Numbers13:33.

This is such a powerful scripture, because the essence of it suggests that, how we perceive ourselves is how we assume others view us , also we behave according to how we see ourselves in the sight of others.   Even more amazing, others will treat us according to the perception that we have of ourselves that is evident in our behavior.

There is someone on your job, in your family, in your network of friends whom you believe is smarter than you, more confident than you, friendlier than you, but hold on a second, these are your thoughts, ideas and images that you’ve manufacture, and unknowing to you, you are behaving according to what you are thinking (so a man thinks so is he Prov. 23:7) and now you are subliminally placing a demand on them to treat you according to your behavior, that all began based on your own conjured mental images and thoughts.

My words of wisdom to you on this beautiful morning are to believe the report of the Lord. That reports states that he has made you a little lower than the Angels but has crowned you with glory and honor and has made you to have dominion over the works of his hands, and has place all things under your feet, Psalm 8:5-6.

Now, proceed to the nearest mirror that you can find take another look at yourself, and begin to form images in your mind of a confident, beautiful, smart, kind and awesome person. Secondly, grab a hold of your bible and seek every scripture that speaks to your person, such as you are fearfully and wonderfully made, Psalm 139:14. Meditate on what God has said about you repeat it over and over again into your understanding until you literally see the images of a new person in your mind. Scripture reminds us that if we meditate upon the word day and night, then we shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water. Make no mistake your life is the sum total of the way you view yourself.

Heavenly Father, I appreciate that there is no other God beside you. It is my prayer this morning that you inspire your people to put aside that condescending mindset that they have of themselves, and that you will in them to think of themselves according to what you’ve said in your word of them, in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen!

There is a fight in the spirit realm attempting to prevent or delay your breakthrough!

Time is advancing many of you to the greatest breakthrough of your life. The intense opposition against you even as you’re reading this is evidence of that.

Have you noticed that things that seem so simple for others, turns out to be most difficult or prolonged for you? Does it seem as if everyone else is getting ahead or being promoted except you? Are you frustrated and confused, because folks who wants nothing to do with God, don't pay tithes, work overtime for the devil, seem to be the ones being blessed?
 Well my friends this is the reality of Christianity, IT ALWAYS SEEMINGLY GETS WORST BEFORE CHANGE SHOWS UP. As a matter of fact do you recall Daniel’s record of how The Angel that God had sent to him, with the answers to Daniel’s prayers was hindered due to the prince of Persia (A high ranking demonic spirit) resisting him, Daniel 10:11-13?

The Angel said that Daniel’s prayers were heard from day one, which was 21 days prior to the Angel showing up but the prince of persia (Demonic high ranking spirit) that ruled over the physical kingdom of Persia kept the Angel held up in the spirit realm along with Daniel’s breakthrough, but Michael one of the chief prince (a more powerful Angel of God) challenged the prince of Persia so that the Angel could bring change for Daniel. Who or whatever is oppressing you right now are only agents of a higher order, BUT THAT IS ABOUT TO COME TO AN END BECAUSE YOUR BREAKTHROUGH IS DUE FOR RELEASE!!!!!

What I found to be even more interesting in Daniel 10:20, the Angel Said to Daniel when it was time for him to leave he said, “Now I will return to FIGHT with the prince of Persia” However when he leaves the prince of Grecia (a prince is the highest order of Satan’s kingdom) shall come. Daniel’s prayer to God was so powerful that Satan had to send reinforcement after the angel. So what does this mean? EXPECT HATERS WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR BREAKTHROUGH THIS IS A PART OF THE DEAL. HOWEVER THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING THEY CAN DO, BECAUSE IT’S A DONE DEAL!!!!!!!!!

So as you can see, all hell is breaking loose around you because there is a spiritual battle between Angels and demons of the highest order IN THE SPIRIT REALM, with the demons attempting to prevent what God has already decided, and just like in Daniel’s case THEY WILL FAIL!

However no devil in hell can stop what God has already assigned for you, in fact like I said in my opening statement TIME IS ADVANCING YOU TO IT, THE DEVIL KNOWS THIS AND THIS IS WHY THE FIGHT HAS BECOME SO VICIOUS.

PLEASE I BEG YOU, I KNOW IT HAS BEEN HARD, TOUGH, EMBARRASSING, but again these are only the red flags or signs that your time of breakthrough is drawing close.

Heavenly father I pray for all that will read this re-assurance from you, I do not pray for a breakthrough for them because I am certain time is advancing them to it. What I do pray for is patience and endurance on their part. I now come in agreement with your word for them, and your word says that they ought to not grow weary in well doing for they SHALL reap if they faint not. I ask these things in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen!

Only God knows our path

Every matter has a particular path as a means for the believer to not only escape but to obtain victory and guaranteed success.

A path is not only defined as a way by which people or animals walk, but more importantly defined as a course of action. This definition is crucial to note, because it is about to be made clear to us as to whom we must acknowledge in order to discover our path. In Proverbs 3:6 it reads, “IN ALL THY WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM (GOD) AND HE SHALL DIRECT OUR PATH”. Even though we quote this scripture over and over again, I doubt strongly very few of us grab a hold of its revelatory understanding.

 The truth is, in order to discover our way out of those seemingly hopeless, dark and weary situations the key is we must acknowledge God in whatever it maybe that have us imprisoned. This is key as it relates to our way out.

The word acknowledge, means to notice, recognize or be aware of something. In this scripture we are being asked to recognize or be aware of God as a prerequisite to discovering our path out of our dilemmas. isn't it amazing when we receive bad news how we slip into depression or confusion and immediately forgetting about God, who is the beginning and end of all things? I found this scripture's revelation to be obvious when carefully meditating on it, but easily missed when just quoting it. People of God, God want to lead and guide you out of that frustrating situation that has plagued you for years.

However you have yet to complete the prerequisite and that is, recognizing him as God and Lord of your situation in spite of its apparent hopelessness. In recognizing him as God in our situations, two things occur and they are: 1) your spiritual eyes are open and 2) you become enlighten with wisdom that was always there, but the opening of your spiritual eyes illuminated the hidden wisdom that was always there, but has now been revealed to highlight the path that was carved out for you before the foundation of the world, Eph. 1:4. God says, “I will go before thee and make the crooked places straight. I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut asunder the gates of brass, AND I WILL GIVE THEE THE TREASURES OF DARKNESS, AND HIDDEN RICHES OF SECRET PLACES”, Isa. 45:2-3.

Folks, yes you are in a dark place right now, but it is only as dark based on your absence of not acknowledging God in your situation. Please, begin to recognize God in your matter so that he can reveal the treasures of your dark situations and unveil the hidden riches of secret places in an effort to give you victory.

Heavenly Father, I am thankful that you have etched out our paths before the foundation of the world. Thank you Father that you created our end from our beginning, therefore you are fully aware of every path that leads to victory and freedom for us. Help us to acknowledge you in all our way so that you will direct us to that pre-ordained path that only you know of. We ask these things in the matchless name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen!
