You may find praying a difficult thing to do. You may find that is does not work. You may find that everytime you come across a Christian who tells you to pray you feel like kicking them in the face, because you have prayed. You have prayed and prayed and prayed and heaven has not heard you. The angels have placed you on mute. Jesus has passed you by.
Why? It’s easy. SIN Did you know that SIN hinders prayer? Take for instance 1 Peter 3:7 “Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.” Wow! Husbands are your prayers hindered? How are you treating your wife? Are you sinning against her?
Let’s look at Isaiah 59:1-2 “Behold the LORD’S hand is not so short That it cannot save; Nor is His ear so dull That it cannot hear. But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear.” That’s Powerful! God has a mute button.
So if you desire to have power with God and see your prayers move mountains, you must take care of the sin in your life. Kill it. Do not deceive yourself about it. Just kill it and watch God move on your prayers.
You hear over and over that prayer changes things, but many refuse to pray both night and day. Waiting for a calamity or a disruption in your daily scheduled program.
Remember the Lord while you still have time. Call upon him in the good and bad seasons of your life. Spend the time in prayer and you will find the fire seasons less heated and they will produce for you far more revelation.
Prayer is needed more than ever.
The day is dawning where black women have a new threat to the plight of their singleness. It is often said, that the white woman is taking all the good black men and now white men may be added to the list. It is a sad day for the black family. The incarceration and effeminization is ruining the already impoverished black family.
Michael Sam has single handily glorified a function that is detrimental to our existence. Not only on a physical and natural level, but also on a spiritual one. This distortion does not maximize our functionality as so-called civilized beings, but causes us to retreat to animal like behavior not knowing this leads to extinction.
It is high time for believers in Jesus to pray. Pray that the Lord will protect our families from destruction. Pray that the Lord will cover our babies with the protection of Angels. Pray that the Lord will create a safe haven.
DELILAH: TELL ME! WHERE DOES YOUR STRENGTH COME FROM
SAMSON: FROM THE CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH
DELILAH: WHAT WILL YOU GIVE IN EXCHANGE FOR YOUR STRENGTH
SAMSON: AT FIRST THOUGHT NOTHING, AT SECOND THOUGHT NOTHING, AT THIRD THOUGHT SEX
DELILAH: SEX IN EXCHANGE FOR YOUR MIRACLOUS STRENGTH
SAMSON: YES! I THOUGHT IT OVER AND IT SOUNDS GOOD
When you look at this story it seems to be a no brainer. The devil will always tempt you with something you already can have, but in a way that defiles the man or woman. Psychologist tell us that sexual addictions are the most difficult to break. Why? The Bible says that when a man and woman outside the bonds of marriage have intercourse they are joined. No other sin joins us together. So refrain from joining with anyone that has not joined you in marriage. Otherwise why cheapen yourself and lose strength for nothing.
*The defilement of mankind with sexual sin is on the rise as you may or may not notice in the news, the solution, if we go back to the conversation we find the solution is found in the meditation. DO NOT MEDIATATE ON UNHOLY THINGS. Our flesh is weak and we will fall all the time if we do.
