This message is a continuation of yesterday’s message.

 

We are discussing the role of a prayer life that must be built by every believer in relation to being God’s partner in the outpouring of His Spirit in these last days.

 

a) By praying, we are continuously emptying ourselves of various forms of SELF, HUMANITY and WORLDLINESS.

 

b) By praying, we are working the qualities of our heart into good ground for His Word to grow and bear fruit (Matthew 13:23).

 

With the spirit of prayer and worship, it will automatically condition the attitude of our hearts to be like good ground, the fruit of which at least manifests a life that loves God whole-heartedly (Matthew 13:44-46). This means that there will always be a blaze of spirit that continues to burn within us to pursue and experience God’s reality for real.

 

In any situation, God really wants us to continue to be carriers of the reality of His presence. But sadly, our minds cannot endure things of the Spirit! It’s so easy to be distracted by the changes happening around us! Yet God is working WITHIN us!

 

Therefore, we should not be ‘fooled’ by external factors of change! Just keep the condition of our spirit so that it continues to burn. Do not be taken by the opportunity played by the devil to ‘extinguish’ our spirits. Because the devil knows exactly, when our spirits are extinguished because of the facts of life, then at that moment we are losing hope, until finally we take the decision to withdraw from the race of faith.

 

Continue to speak His Word and promises in all circumstances until our spiritual man is burning. And make it the only pattern to conquer all situations that are outwardly often unpredictable!! Because the pattern is ONLY ONE! If there are many other ways that we maintain, then the TRUE PATTERN will never be able to arise within us!

 

In these days God is constantly moving and working to take His chosen people who will be perfected by Him in Zion (Jeremiah 3:14), and make them the pioneers for the rise of a generation of prayer and worshipers, as prophesied in the Word of God.

 

Isaiah 56:7 (NKJV) Even them I will bring to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on My altar; for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.”

 

John 4:23 (NKJV) But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him..

 

c) By praying, we become a person who more easily conquers various negative emotions in our hearts.

 

Most diseases in the end times are often caused by heart and mind problems such as stress, depression, disappointment, bitterness, discouragement, and so on. Therefore, God wants as prayer and worshipers, our hearts continue to be cleansed from various hatreds and inner conflicts. Having an attitude of heart that is easy to forgive and forget the mistakes of others, so that we, too, can be shaped to be perfect just like our Father in heaven.

 

Matthew 5:43-44, 48 (NKJV) “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you. Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

 

The reality of God’s presence will continue to guard our hearts and emotions so that they can no longer be shaken by negative emotions, and are not easily trapped by various enemy works that aim to destroy or kill the divine life we have. It is always easy for us to always ‘move on’ and rejoice.

 

We find that the joy of God will always be a strength in our lives.

 

The joy of the Lord is my strength (Nehemiah 8:10 NKJV).

 

This message will continue again tomorrow.
