“I have called upon You, for You will hear me, O God; Incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech.” Psalms 17:6 NKJV
- Do you know that you can have a confident and powerful prayer life? - Even if your prayer life is currently weak or nonexistent. - All it takes is humbling yourself before God, and speaking to Him. - Psalm 17:6 was a prayer of David. - David was confident that when he prayed to God that God heard him. - And since he knew that He heard him, He also was confident that God would answer Him. - It all comes out of a relationship with Him. - John 15: 7 says, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you." - They Key to answered prayer is remaining in Christ. - You get close to Jesus by getting into His Word. - As you get into His Word, daily, His Word gets into you. - And as His Words get in you, you will begin to see your attitude, desires and actions change. - They will begin to line up with His desires. - All of a sudden we will begin to see that His "wants" become our "wants". - His purposes become our purposes. - His desires become our desires. - The more we hang out and get to know Jesus through His Word, the more our prayers will fall in line with His nature and His words. - Then we will see effective prayers. - In John 14:13-14 "Jesus says, “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” - And the end result of this kind of praying is that God gets glorified. - So today, turn to Him, humble yourself before Him and spend some time in His presence. - Get to know Jesus and watch what He can accomplish through you! - Today is a great day to pray! - Have a great weekend!
