Greetings to you in the wonderful name of Jesus Christ – THE Risen Saviour! What a beautiful morning in the Kingdom – so from the rising of the sun we begin to look for ways to praise God and to magnify His presence. What are the first ten reasons you have to be thankful? Today I will be praying for you, asking Father to release the promises of Isaiah 40:28-31 to you in abundance.
I read this quote on my daily calendar: Living a life of faith means never knowing where you are being led. But it does mean loving and knowing the One who is leading. It is literally a life of faith, not of understanding or reason–a life of knowing him who calls us to go. A life of faith is not a life of one glorious mountaintop experience after another, but it is a life of day in and day out consistency, a life of walking without fainting. – Oswald Chambers. As I pondered that, I was directed to the story in Matthew’s gospel where Jesus has been on a mountaintop adventure with three of his disciples and they return to the foot of the mountain. They are met with a man needing a miracle for his son and the rest of the disciples who couldn’t facilitate the healing.
In a moment of compassionate frustration, Jesus tells the disciples that they needed to use the little faith they had and not doubt…and he gives this promise – “…If you have faith inside of you no bigger than the size of a small mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move away from here and go over there,’ and you will see it move! There is nothing you couldn’t do! Matthew 17:20 TPT.
A good friend passed on this insight that fits here: If you are going to be a prayer warrior, the devil is not going to attack you while you are going to prayer. He’s going to attack you after you are finished praying – because he wants to challenge what God has shown you and he wants you to curse [and doubt] God. God said for our hearing – “There is nothing we can not do if we would walk out our faith. Don’t let the enemy steal away the power of my presence in the daily adventure.”
Something to ponder…be blessed!
