DON'T LOSE SIGHT ON YOUR SECRET WEAPON!
“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.
“Pray as if everything depends on God, then work as if everything depends on you” Martin Luther
We must take care not to miss the God of the present moment, and I want you to be aware that the God of this present moment is working on something very special in your life at this very moment. You have already been given the victory; all that remains for us to do is to live out this moment in time as best we can. This very moment in your life was deliberately planned out by God. I want you to keep your attention fixed on the presence of God and the changes that are taking place in your life as a result of his presence. I want to remind you that in it this season Prayer is KEY!
Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Stay focused on what you're doing and don't let your thoughts get distracted by the problems and events going on in the world around you. The stakes are high, so you need to keep your mind sharper than ever. To communicate with God, we must first pray. Communicating with God is possible through the practice of prayer. He longs to have personal conversations with each of us. By bringing one's whole self before God in confession and utter dependence, prayer transforms the one who prays. When we are truly reaching down into the depths of ourselves in prayer, admitting our weaknesses and admitting that we need help, there is nothing to be ashamed of. When we do this, we are able to experience God's presence in a way that is free from the noise of our own pride and anxious thoughts.
Colossians 3:2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things
"If you believe in prayer at all, expect God to hear you. If you do not expect, you will not have. God will not hear you unless you believe He will hear you; but if you believe He will, He will be as good as your faith." - Charles Spurgeon
Praying isn't some mystical process in which we appeal to an unseen power. Nor is it the ability to command God like a bellhop in Heaven by making things happen through the power of our words. Praying is talking to God and receiving answers from him. When our desires coincide with God's will, we have prayed sincerely. We should always keep the lines of communication open with God and with God with us through prayer.
When you have dominion over something, you don't need to pray over it; you need only speak the word, and everything must comply. I don't understand why, if God has given you and me authority, you and I should waste our time praying to something you were made to communicate with directly. When I want my children to do what I say, I don't have to pray to God for it; I just have to speak the word. We can better serve God when we act in light of our Father-Child relationship with him.
The two most important things for you to do right now are study and unwind. relax and take a chill pill God is in complete command of the situation. It's futile to worry about external factors when internal changes are within your control. That's why the Bible says to give God our worries, because he'll take care of them.
2 CORINTHIANS 2:14: Now thanks be unto God, who always causeth us to triumph in Christ and who maketh manifest through us the savor of His knowledge in every place.
Triumph is just "umph" added to try. Beloved I prophesy to you today if you just try God will add some umph to your life
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31 KJV)
Ephesians 6:10: Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Declarations are bold and clear. Neither are they confessions or suggestions. God is on our side, so we make declarations and proclamations. The power for the miraculous to occur in your life is yours to declare and unleash.
Pronounce it, order it, and proclaim it with the authority of a king, for the Lord God will support you.
