(Kindly pray in the Holy Ghost as you read this)
Check through Scriptures, and you’ll notice one thing: The Scripture is a compendium of the boastings of God – what He is able to do, regardless of zero external interference. On this account, we call him ‘Jehovah; the I AM; the Self-Existent God.’
However, the devil, who is the father of lies (John 8:44), has vowed (in fact, that is his core assignment & ministry) Is to ensure that he makes God look like a liar and a scam, because he knows that if only he can fault the integrity of God before the believer, he has successfully attacked the faith of that believer, and when the faith of the believer is compromised, that believer has lost total guard, so much so that he can’t receive anything from God (even a divine intervention). Read Luke 22:31-32, Hebrews 11:6 & Ephesians 6:16.
So, you see the believer facing so much attacks and battles, in spite of his vast knowledge of the ability and capacity of God as contained in Scriptures.
You look at such believer, and you see a life of controversy and scriptural discord.
The goal is to insult the faith of the believer both in God and in His Word.
For this purpose, God is always searching for intercessors in every generation. You know, God will never joke with an intercessor.
An intercessor is one who understands the agency of priesthood.
An intercessor supplies witness for the legislation of the agenda of God.
An intercessor grants God the legitimacy to superimpose on the affairs of men.
An intercessor is a PRAYER (For one who sings is a singer; one who drives is a driver etc; much more, one who prays is a PRAYER).
Dear warrior, fight strong. Intercede strong. The devil is the father of lies. Whatever he is picturing to you is a direct lie and a contradiction of what God has in store for you. Remember, Proverbs 24:10, “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.”
It is not the adversity that should be your concern; your strength should be. Develop strength.
What prayers cannot do, more prayers can do it.
You must tarry to carry.
You must wait on Him so you don’t waste in Him.
Pray or you’ll be a prey.
Until you Travail, you can’t prevail.
If you don’t intercede, you won’t succeed.
Only men who pray through get the breakthrough.
God is not joking. Satan is not joking. You shouldn’t be joking.
Father, help our infirmity; teach us to pray!!!
