How has this month been for you? Was it challenging? Glorious? Depressing? Sad? Filled with laughter? No matter how this month has been, let us thank God that we are alive and well and seeing the end of September and eagerly waiting for October to come through and be a blessing to you and I.
For the Bible reminds us in Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
As September is drawing to a close, I am conscious of the fact that without prayer and faith, this month could have had the upper hand over my life. The month started well and as it rolled by and came to the middle of the month, the enemy attacked me and I was unable to stand my ground for a moment.
Thank God for the Holy Spirit in me, who reminded me of the power of prayer and the power of having faith even when the odds are stacked against you and I. I am talking about this much loved verse of the Scripture: Mark 11: 22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
This month saw me praying like never before, I am in a new season and it is a season of prayer. Because the Bible tells us and also reminds us that sometimes, we have to pray like a warrior: Matt 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.
Rms 12:12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
Prayer and faith works; do not let the enemy have an upper hand in your life; God has the final say and as such, stand your ground in prayer and have faith that it shall come to pass as you want it to be.
Prayer point: Read Isaiah 41:10 – God uphold me with your right hand of power even as this month is coming to an end in Jesus name.
