Your Prayer of Faith WILL Change Things.

Contend for YOUR Blessing!!!

We are quickly coming to the close of 2013.  As we prepare for Christmas celebrations, parties, time with family and friends etc., I think it is very important for us to pause and reflect on the things God has blessed us to achieve this year along with the promises of God we have seen manifested in our lives.

It is equally important for us to think about the promises that we have not yet seen.  I don’t know about you, but I refuse to read and study the Word of God, confess the Scriptures and NOT HAVE A SERIOUS EXPECTATION FROM GOD OF SEEING THESE BLESSINGS MANIFESTED IN MY OWN LIFE.

We know that God cannot lie and that He does not make mistakes.  In Chapter 10 of the book of Daniel, we read about a vision that was given to Daniel.  The Scripture tells us that Daniel had been fasting and praying for 21 days.  On the 24th day, he alone saw a vision of a man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold. Verse 6 says his body was like the beryl and his face as the appearance of lightning.  His eyes as lamps of fire and his arms and feet like in color to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude (KJV).  The angel goes on to tell Daniel that from the first day he began to fast and pray, his prayer was heard.  He also said that he had come because of his words.

The next thing the angel says gives us insight into the warfare that takes place when we pray.  The angel said the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood him 21 days.  Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help him.  With Michael’s help the angel was able to overcome the demonic warfare (in the heavenly realm) to successfully deliver the message from God to Daniel.

Often times, we need God’s wisdom to overcome obstacles and to move forward.  There are times when it seems that we are “roadblocked”. We don’t understand why we have not been able to move forward or why negative situations have persisted.  There can be many reasons but we are able to discern demonic interference when we take the time to fast and pray about the situation.

Isaiah 58: talks about the fast that God has chosen.  In this passage of scripture we understand that the purpose of the fast that God has chosen is to LOOSE THE BANDS OF WICKEDNESS, UNDO THE HEAVY BURDENS, TO LET THE OPPRESSED GO FREE AND THAT YOU BREAK EVERY YOKE!  This is what I love about fasting and praying.  God said that we would break every hindering force!  If the devil is holding onto your blessing, as you fast and pray and command him to loose your blessing, he will have to obey you.

During a time of intense prayer with fasting, we humble ourselves before the Lord and allow him to show us areas of our lives we need to change.  The results of the fast are clarity, direction and  a true understanding of the problems we  face from a divine perspective.  If there is a hindrance to our prayers being answered, we can ask for and expect God to show us where we need to repent and make adjustments.  We are told that our health will spring forth speedily.  Verse 11 says “And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and make fat your bones: and you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water whose waters won’t fail. (KJV)”  You won’t feel dry in your heart and mind.  The Spirit of the Lord will water, refresh and strengthen you.

So what has God promised you in 2013?  Have you received it?  If not, is it because of disobedience or procrastination on your part?  Whatever the case may be, I encourage you to set aside some extra time to pray, study the Word and seek the Lord regarding His promise to you.  If you get serious with God, like Daniel, the angel of the Lord will be released from heaven with your blessing.  I guess the question is:  Do you want the blessing enough to get alone with God in prayer and fasting? Some of you may need to fast and pray for 3 , 5, 7 days and some for even 1 day.

As you continue in prayer and praise, ask God to release the angelic help that hearkens to the word of the Lord.  Ask God to release the amount of angels needed to cause your angel to arrive at your house with your blessing.  Do not become discouraged. Many believers do and it causes their faith to wean.  Begin to boldly decree the Word of the Lord out of your mouth by faith daily.  Praise Him for performing His word.  You can begin to say like Mary the mother of Jesus said, “It shall be done unto me, according to your Word.  There shall be a performance of these things in my life.” Every devil better get out of my way or get run over!  IN ALL these things, I am more than a conqueror!

I pray that the spirit of prayer, warfare, praise and worship begin to fill your heart and mind like never before.  Pray fervently.  Pray according to the Word from a heart of faith. Be specific. Don’t complain or pray the things you see. Pray what you want to see.  Pray the will of God expecting to hear from Him and see the desired results. Decree a thing and it shall be established.  You don’t have to see 2013 end without seeing your prayers answered.

Mark 11: 23-24 says “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he says.  Therefore I say unto you, what things soever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them and you shall have them.” (KJV)

Contend for Your Victory!  Pray until your blessing shows up THIS YEAR!
