ENFORCING OUR VICTORY THROUGH PRAYER

Feb 23, 2023

You cannot seek God in vain because whatever He speaks happens. Prayer is one of the best investments you make on earth. It is better than investing in US stocks because these fail but prayer will bail you out.

Isaiah 45:19(AMP) I have not spoken in secret, in a corner of the land of darkness; I did not call the descendants of Jacob [to a fruitless service], saying, Seek Me for nothing [but I promised them a just reward]. I, the Lord, speak righteousness (the truth–trustworthy, straightforward correspondence between deeds and words); I declare things that are right.

Prayer goes into your future and prepares the way for you, that’s why some of the things you pray for will happen twenty years from now. Don’t be only locked in the “now” because the moment you step in prayer, you become omnipresent.

Joshua 21:45 Not a word failed of any good thing which the LORD had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass.

Every word that God spoke to the Israelites came to pass. If God did it for Joshua who was living under the old-testament, what about you who is under the new covenant?

There are certain things we are not aware of but God is working on them; these things sustain us. So don’t base your faith on only what you feel and see, there is much more going on than you know that’s why you should not drop prayer.

Exodus 34:6-7 And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing [the guilty,] visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”

You can bring an end to inequity and guilt by clinging to the mercies of the Lord. He is only waiting for you to be broken and accept that you sinned, stand in the gap like Daniel and interceded for a nation (not that he sinned but he took responsibility and interceded). We suffer, not because there is no help but because we do not know the God we serve.

James 2:13 For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

Every judgment that has been responsible for the evils going on in your life can be stopped by the cry of mercy because it silences judgment. The devil is always fighting so you have to make sure you enforce your victory (Hosea 4:6, Proverbs 11:9).

Colossians 2:11-17 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with [Him] through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead…

This truth must be inside you because if you do not know your position in Christ, it will be difficult to enforce your victory. Knowing your position in Christ will drive devils out of your life even before you pray.

God gives us victory through Jesus Christ. In any area of your life where you need a victory, it has already been given to you at calvary. We are not trying to be victorious but enforcing the victory that was already won by Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:57)
