|Then Joshua spoke to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel: “Sun, stand still over Gibeon; And Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.” So the sun stood still,
And the moon stopped, till the people had revenge upon their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. And there has been no day like that, before it or after it, that the LORD heeded the voice of a man; for the LORD fought for Israel.
As a born again believer you have inherited the greatest and most powerful power in all of existence. That power is in and released through you when you pray in the name of Jesus. In John 14:13-14 Jesus says, “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” Many Christian’s prayers are not answered because they are not heard by the Lord Jesus Christ. Only prayers of faith and belief can enter into the throne room of heaven. In Mark 11:24 Jesus says, “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
When you pray you must believe your prayers are being heard. Many Christians religiously and half-heartedly pray without any belief that Jesus will hear or respond to their needs. In Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” A Christian who believes is one who has daily fellowship with the Lord based on a Divine Love for Him. Without the love of God flowing in your prayers, they wont be heard. In 1 Corinthians 13:1 Paul says, “though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.” A daily prayer life will keep you in the divine love and relationship with God Almighty and the Lord Jesus Christ. When you have daily fellowship with Him you can believe Him to answer all your needs and prayers! This is easy to do when you realize that God Almighty and the Lord Jesus Christ loves you so much, that they want you to come into their presence daily to pour out their love on you!
|Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.|
|You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.|
