In meditating the Word I did one time, I was shocked by the revelation of the Spirit I received. The Holy Spirit suddenly seemed to deflect my reflection and He reminded me one verse:
Ephesians 3: 20 (NKJV) Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ASK or THINK, according to the power that works in us
Imagine, it turns out that our mind has the same quality and reach with our prayers! Meanwhile there has been so much energy and time that we have wasted in the aspect of using or maximizing our mind! Though our mind actually has the reach and strength equivalent to our prayers!
That’s why the Holy Spirit gave me a warning (and to all of us): Be aware of the attempts of the distraction of the enemy! The Evil will always attempt to make our mind distracted by kinds of negative data and facts presented before our eyes whereas our mind is supposed to be set on the promises of the Word or the revelation of the Spirit that He reveals to us! The enemy’s success in distracting our mind has blocked the power of prayer that should flow out of our lives!
Imagine if our mind keeps being focused on the Word and God’s promise or the revelation of the Spirit, we will find the power of prayer that we have multipled! When we actively use our mouth in prayer, the power of prayer is activated and ignited. When we stop praying, our mind can be actively set to imagine the fulfillment of the promises or the Word of God that we receive through our prayers!
1. Make sure we are not deceived by the wiles of the enemy
Continue to discipline ourselves to always focus or set our mind on His Word and promises only. The enemy will keep attempting with their great effort to make our mind focused on the negative data and fact. But believe, the more our mind is set on the negative data and fact, the more our power of prayer is declining.
But when we continue to strengthen our heart to ensure our mind always focused on His Word or promises, the power of prayer that we have will be strong enough to overturn all the evil plan and design that the Devil is aiming at us!
2. Continue to guard the position of truth, peace and joy that comes from the Holy Spirit in our lives
The kingdom of God is righteousness (the right standing before God), peace and joy from the Holy Spirit that works in our lives. As long as our mind is set on the truth so that we continue to have the divine access to speak before the Father and to activate the power of prayer, automatically the work of the Spirit in our lives will keep being blazed. The dynamic of the work of the Spirit that conditions our heart always overflowing with peace and joy secures or ensures that anything we are asking for and praying will surely be fulfilled in our lives!
So don’t let the enemy distract our mind from God’s Word or promises. Just as a bird or a plane needs a pair of wings to fly in the sky, so we need our mind and words to release the power of prayer.
By ensuring our mouths continue to speak what we believe then our mind or imaginations keep being focused on the fulfillment of God’s promises, the power of prayer that we have will be able to shake the heaven! #ILoveGod
