Forty Days of Prayer - Day 4

Thursday, January 9, 2020

 

Day Four

 

Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go! Let it be done just as you

believed it would." And his servant was healed at that moment.

(Matthew 8:13)

 

Hello sisters and happy Thursday . I am so delighted to be back

posting and sharing together.

 

I looked up the focus verse in The Message version. It says,"Go. What

you believed could happen has happened." At that moment his servant

became well." (Matthew 8:13). To me this version clearly defines

what's going on in this story. In both versions, we are commanded to

"GO". We are not told to try harder to fix the problem, pontificate

more on what the problem is, or tirelessly worry about the situation.

We are told to just GO! Directly after this command , we are told to

believe. Jesus is the One who has the authority to fix whatever the

problem is and all the spinning around we tend to do does NOT help in

any way. Today Kit has written "clearly identify the problem; then

hold it up to the power of Jesus and His authority." Are you starting

to see how BIG He is? Do you feel any freedom in that? He has got

this, ladies. He has got both the biggest of big problems and the

tiniest of tiny problems. It's our job to hold them out in prayer and

trust in His power. So give Him the impossible you have in your heart.

 

Our prayers may not be answered right away and they may never be

answered the way we think they should be. However we can be assured

every prayer we pray is heard by Him. Nothing goes unnoticed. The way

He chooses to answer is up to Him. He wants what is best for us

always. It's all in His timing and according to His will. Our job is

to identify the need and lift it up to Him. As we begin talking to Him

with our requests, we will experience a deepening in our relationship

with Jesus. We can be assured communicating with our Lord is indeed

His will. I believe one of the deepest needs all humans have is to be

KNOWN by someone. Really Known. If no one else in this world wants to

invest in you, You can be assured Jesus does. He wants relationship

with you. He already knows you better than you will ever know yourself.

He wants you to know Him; so spill out all those requests. Pour your

hearts out to him with the impossible. As Kit says, pray something you

have never dared or dreamed of praying. Pray over that stronghold that

you cannot seem to escape. Do it with the confidence that He hears, He

cares, and He answers.

 

What have you go to loose?

 

For further reading: Matthew 8:5-8; Ephesians 6:12; Isaiah 55:8-9;

Jeremiah 32:17.

 

Heavenly Father,

We come to you today in awe of how much You love us. You care about

every detail big and small and always want what is best for us.

Father, we ask today that You break these strongholds that we

individually bring to You. Your word says, "He brought them out of

darkness and the shadow of death And broke their bands apart"(Psalm

107:14). Today we ask You to do exactly that. We put all our trust and

faith in You, Mighty God. We claim You can and will do the impossible.

Amen
