In one of my last posts of the year (2017) I spoke about YAH wanting us to go to new levels
in life. In this post I want to continue on that thread.
Today I want to talk about a new level in prayer.
There is another level of prayer for us to go to if we so desire. As we advance in the purpose
YAH has for us we need to also grow in our prayer life. Without prayer the chance of failing
This week YAH has been showing me how important prayer is, in regards to the things
He has put on my heart, the dreams and desires He has put in me. He has been challenging
me to bring those things to Him constantly. He cares about the things on my heart, about the
desires I have, the dreams I have.
But there has been disappointment in the past. There have been things I believed Him for that didn’t
come to pass. There are things I am still waiting for and it’s been years waiting…..
I think that’s one of the reasons I have not been as vigilant in bringing ALL my desires, and dreams
CONSISTENTLY to Him.
But this is the thing, He knows everything in my heart intimately and love is what powers what
He does and does not do concerning the things in my heart.
What are some of the things that stop you from consistently bringing your desires and dreams to Him?
The Lord hears our prayers and answers them! Let’s look at a man I have spoken about before, Isaac.
“Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah as wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan Aram,
the sister of Laban the Syrian.
Now Isaac pleaded with the Lord for his wife, because she was barren; and the Lord granted his plea and
Rebekah his wife conceived. “
Genesis 25:20, 21
“Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau’s heel; so his name was called Jacob.
Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.”
Isaac prayed for Rebekah who was barren and the Lord answered his prayer. That is amazing, but
even more amazing is how long he had been praying for. Over a period of twenty years Isaac prayed
to YAH! He didn’t give up on his desire, he never shelved it. He kept going to YAH with his desire.
He had faith YAH was going to do something or else he wouldn’t continue praying.
(On a side note: Isn’t it interesting that YAH joined Isaac and Rebekah together knowing full well
that Rebekah was barren and also knowing Abraham’s promise would carry on through them??!
Once again, YAH didn’t chose someone who was “able” but used someone
who couldn’t have children to be a vessel of His promise to Abraham about giving him descendants
as countless as the stars!!)
That’s a story for another day, let’s continue with the post………..
What has YAH put on your heart? What are you believing Him for?
Keep bringing your requests to Him in faith. Don’t give up no matter how long its been.
If you have given up then it’s time to get back up. Trust Him again. There is a reason He hasn’t
answered your prayer. Remember, its love that powers every thing He does.
The time is now to go to another level in our prayer life. Look to Him for help. You can’t do this alone.
He wants to help you get there.
We serve a God who hears our prayers and answers them friends. Keep praying and keep hoping.
