Develop A Total Dependence Upon God In Prayer
To have a successful life, ministry or business, you must make prayer your lifeline! Instead of worrying about how to get ahead, develop a total dependence upon God. Spend time in prayer. 6 Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Phil. 4:6. When you face circumstances and challenges that seem impossible, instead of wracking your brain or looking to other sources, get on your knees. Pray. Ask God for wisdom. God has promised that:
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
The key to having the power that was manifested in the Early Church is to make time for sustained, dedicated, and self-sacrificing prayer. The apostles and disciples lived a lifestyle of being in constant prayer. The fate of the Church was at stake! They faced the awesome challenge of laying a strong foundation for the Church that would endure through and overcome the onslaughts of Satan. Their commitment is revealed in: 4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the Word. Acts 6:4.
You will find that the disciples prayed in times of crisis, before choosing deacons or ordaining elders, and before any major undertaking. We read about Paul’s unceasing prayers for the believers: 2 We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers. 1 Thess. 1:2.
It is God’s will for you to prosper! His Word in your mouth is the key to prospering in all that you do. As you develop your life, ministry or business, set standards according to His Word, and obediently walk in His precepts, He will direct you and enable you to make wise decisions. We are going to have to know that….
Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedth out to the mouth of God.
REMINDER: DEVELOP A TOTAL DEPENDENCE UPON GOD IN PRAYER!!!!
Love you and the Blessings of God be upon you.
