I feel that there is a major mistake we often do while praying: we pray to such an extent only for God to listen to us. How mistaken! Supposedly, we must pray to such an extent so we can hear Him!
1. Our Father in heaven always listens to our prayers
He even knows what we need before we express it, and He has prepared all of them beforehand!
So actually, when we ‘recount lengthily’ about our problems, situations, and needs before God, we are ‘merely’ convincing ourselves that we are ‘involving God’ in what we are facing. Although it’s not something wrong, it’s actually inaccurate, especially from the word perspective:
Matthew 6:8 (NASB) So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
So, this is what we should do every time we pray:
Firstly, align the spiritual frequency in our lives with heaven’s frequency. Because when under pressure, we will naturally focus on problems and look for a quick way out.
The longer we ‘dwell’ in our problems, the more we’ll become ‘overwhelmed’ and ‘swallowed’ by them. Although the problem is objectively small, it could look big in our perspective, and automatically makes us feel small! That’s why Apostle Peter emphasized for us to quickly ‘cast away’ all forms of anxiety to God (1 Pet 5:7). The longer we hold on to our anxiety, fear, restlessness and inner conflict, the weaker, smaller, and powerless we will feel.
Resist them, firm in our faith! Realize that every form of problem comes because we still have inaccuracy in certain life aspects. And the Devil will always try to use our inaccuracy to ‘hit’ us. Regardless of all, in His love & sovereignty, the Father will always ‘limit’ the Devil’s space to move in our lives. And even more, He is always with us to give our needed strength and a way out (1 Cor 10:13, 1 Pet 5:9-10).
Worship and reading the word will help calm our mind and align our spiritual frequency with heaven’s frequency.
2. What we wait upon is the word from The King
When our life’s frequency is aligned with heaven’s frequency, we could feel and know for sure that we are in the throne room. There, we are face to face with the King who is also our Father! This is our true habitat as New Creations!
The Father knows everything about our life, and He will give His word regarding the situations and circumstances we face. One word from The King is all we need! Because whatever situation, condition or facts we are facing will simply transform when we receive His word!
By declaring His word, we will receive the power to change natural facts to be aligned with His word!
Matthew 8:8 (NASB) But the centurion said, “Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed.
That’s the reason we must align our lives’ frequency to heaven every time we pray; so we could hear Him!
Our prayer is for God to keep fixing His eyes on the islands of Indonesia. Let Him lift this nation gloriously above other nations, so Indonesia could become a pattern! Let her join hands with the other nations to realize world peace and social justice for all citizens of this world. God bless Indonesia! #iLoveGod
