Last night, I rewatched ”War Room” yet, for Sarai, it was her first time seeing the movie. I loved watching her come alive, as she declared that she needed a room dedicated to prayer. I stated that her bedroom would do just fine, as she went to get ready for bed
It’s incredible how something can awaken our Spirits to desire to do what they were created for – to draw closer to God, in prayer
Yet, I have found that the first battle we all find ourselves in, is the fight over our will, rather than God’s. There needs to come to a point in our lives when we say ”Amen” and mean it
Amen means ”so be it” in Hebrew, and I have been thinking about this word that we speak out loud, a lot
Do we realise that this word is complete surrender to God doing what He deems right, and not our thoughts and feelings over the matter at hand? Are we truly willing to put our complete trust in Christ as we say, ”Lord, I give this to you?”
God gave me the conviction this morning that there are still a lot of His children trying to shape and mould the outcomes of their lives. We want the victory but without the surrender
Friends, how many times must we pray biased prayers before we truly let go of our own agenda?
The Scriptures are there for us to declare God’s promises over our lives, and to reaffirm what God has done before, in others lives, but we can read time after time of the internal battles people have faced until they let go and allowed Christ to become the Lord and saviour over their lives
Victory is ours…but only when we pick up our cross and follow Jesus. He died so that we may live. Therefore, His thoughts need to become ours. So, just like Jesus completely surrendered to the Father at Calvary, so must we!
“overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.”Romans 8:37
