A reminder for today
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. (2 Thessalonians 3:18)
Just as we got to school this morning, it started to rain. It did not rain hard, but just enough to get you wet. I loved it, because it reminded me again that God works like that. When you expect it the least, He reigns down and blessings follows. Just enough to get you wet and to focus your attention on what lies ahead. God is amazing in how He knows when and where. So this short burst of rain just glorified Him, because we know that He acts and He is faithful. He hears our prayers and He knows what we need.
I like to call the devil the great divider. You see he wants to scatter us and bring us down so that we cannot unite. I read an awesome comparison last night.
They began saying to each other, "Let's make bricks and harden them with fire." (In this region bricks were used instead of stone, and tar was used for mortar.) Then they said, "Come, let's build a great city for ourselves with a tower that reaches into the sky. This will make us famous and keep us from being scattered all over the world." But the LORD came down to look at the city and the tower the people were building. "Look!" he said. "The people are united, and they all speak the same language. After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them! Come, let's go down and confuse the people with different languages. Then they won't be able to understand each other." (Genesis 11:3-7)
You see when people are united they are banded together with a common goal. Even God saw that when this happens nothing will stop them. Imagine the power we have in this and imagine when we unite in prayer what the impact will be on the earth. Our prayer chain will be impossible to break and we will bring more glory to God than ever before. We will totally end the enemy’s attacks and break his attempts. But he too knows the power that we have in unity and that is why the enemy works to break us up and cause division and disputes. He does everything is his power to stop Christians from uniting.
So today I want to challenge you in uniting us. Let us set our minds on God and focus our prayers so that we will build a chain of prayer. Imagine what we can do for the lost the fearful and the ones that seems to live for themselves. Imagine what we can do.
Lord, today I pray that we unite in prayer to glorify you and break the grip of the enemy. I pray that we will set a common goal to pray as often as we can for each other for strength and wisdom. I pray that you will unite our thoughts so that we will be one in prayer. Let us stand together as we put on your armour and face our challenges. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
