TREM Devotional 18 December 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Deploy The Weapon Of Prayer
TOPIC: Deploy The Weapon Of Prayer
“So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees…” 1 Kings 18:42 KJV
Beloved, if anyone is to quit in life, it is not you. Your eyes must be focused on where you are going. You are a new creation and If Jesus did not fail, you cannot fail.
When Elijah told Ahab to go up because of the abundant rain that was coming, Ahab went to eat while Elijah went to the top of the mountain to pray about his revelation. When you know where you are going, after you have received focus, pray your revelation through. Our weapons of warfare are not canal; they do not have any margin for failure. They are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down every imagination and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and bringing to captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
One of the weapons we have is the weapon of prayer. Your prayer can penetrate any stronghold. If you meet with a brick wall in the pursuit of what God has designed for you, it is time to pray. If need be, declare some fast. And when you are praying, believe that you’re not praying in vain. The Bible says that, the righteous shall inherit the earth, which means that we have access into the throne room of God. So, when you pray, know that it must be answered. You do not doubt while praying because you know that by virtue of your status with God, the answer will come.
Can Jesus pray and His prayers will not be answered? Never! So, you too must receive answers. Why? You are in Christ. When you stand praying, God does not see you; He sees Christ and the prayers of Christ must be answered. When you stand rebuking the devil, the devil does not see you; He sees Christ. So, if Christ defeated him before, he knows He will defeat him again.
