Amazing how our minds work! So much like the Disciples,that’s because of that ugly carnal nature in us. We also expect different
results when we pray. Most of the time we really do think we know what we need :) !
But of course we never will! Only God knows what we need,we know our wants. And some times our wants are so deep we just cannot hardly stand it. I know that’s how I am at times,God you promised this and that,but I don’t see it yet :) . Well a lot of the time we are lookinhg for God to do things our way and that never works. The Disciples Expected Jesus to lead a Great Army to win the Battles in the Flesh. But Jesus Won them in the Spirit!
And so must we 2 Corinthians 10
3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
Jesus does not intend for us to battle alone,He left uus a great helper the Holy Spirit,so we must use this :
Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly realms.
So then let’s pray and strap up so we can stand in these evil days,knowing whom we are battling against helps us recognize the real enemy. We Win because: 1 John 4
1 John 4:4 (NKJV)
4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
God’s word and prayer and praise are our weapons in this world stand strong in the Lord He will always come to our rescue.
Love in Christ Pat
