Are you making the right connection?
If you are not having results in prayer, ask yourself-AM I MAKING THE RIGHT CONNECTION? I know that many reading this may be frustrated. Others may have given up! Accepting your circumstances and becoming mad at God! Don't get mad at God because he is not your problem! A lot of times when we get mad at God, it hinders our prayers. Why, because the word tells us to get angry but sin not, let not the sun go down on your wrath. (Eph 4:26)
How many Christians accept what they think is God's will and get defeated in life? How many are praising God for sickness,lack and poverty when it doesn't come from God? How many in their hearts are, secretly, mad at God for their troubles? Let's face it, we live in a "microwave" generation and forget that we need to develope patience to receive God's promises. (Heb 6:11-12)Why? It's not because God is taking his sweet time. Far from it!
The word of God says that he hastens to perform his word.(Jer 1:12) When you think about it, that was in the Old Testament. Think about this for a moment. The New Testament is called the GOOD NEWS! Why? Because we have a better covenant based on better promises. The Old Testament says that God hastens to perform his word. Are you ready to shout? Look at the following verse-
" According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue" (II Peter 1:3)
Shout because he has (Past tense) given you ALL things that pertains unto life! That means every challenge, every debt, every sickness,etc. has been covered thru the word. He has given us victory,prosperity,healing! It's already done in the Spiritual. What you need is a breakthrough. In order to get a breakthrough, you need to make the right connection!
Years ago, When I was in the Navy, our company commander promised us a radio if we worked hard to win a flag. In order to win a flag, we needed to pass inspection in our barracks. That meant that we needed to clean our floors. We spent all night and all day working for a radio. You need to understand, we were in a "Prison" at boot camp, away from the real world and the radio was our way to be in contact with the latest news and music.
We won the flag and there was rejoicing. We jumped up and down, acting like maniacs. Finally, we had the radio. To the victor's goes the spoils, right? We tried to turn on the radio. No sound. We scratched our heads, wondering why we had no sound. We looked to see if there it was battery powered and it was not. We looked all around the radio and nothing. The Company Commando comes inside the barracks with a cord in his hand saying that it will come extra, if we win another flag. In other words, the cord was the missing connection to our contact to the outside world.
How may Christians upon finding out that God will met their needs and heal them, jump up and down rejoicing in the Lord. We've had teachings on faith and healing and again, shouting and dancing, praising God but when it comes time to receive the manifestation to the promises, we scratch our heads and ask ourselves what happened? Healing was there! Prosperity was there! Peace was there! What happened? THE CORD WAS MISSING! YOU NEED TO MAKE THE RIGHT CONNECTION!!!
