Access Into New Dimensions Of God’s Kingdom Through Prayer – 2016 February Fast (Day 16): Devotion By Rev. Geoffrey Muchai
Today morning, I woke up and the word God had placed in my heart was that the fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.James 5:16-18 (NIV)
Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit.
God has imparted to us His nature and by this nature we are distinguished as His sons. As sons, we are able to program natural circumstances to align them to a supernatural order. As sons, we can tread on serpents and scorpions, move mountains, crush giants, perform miracles and many more things in Christ. As sons, that which the world terms as miraculous becomes a norm because of our status.
God desires to grant us access into new dimensions of His Kingdom. He has already highlighted the dimensions of the miraculous with a particular emphasis on providential care. He has talked about healing, jobs, and businesses that will come in the form of divine opportunities.
My desire for us today is to push into this new territory by praise and petitions.
God is more than willing to grant us these realities if we only take time to lock in and become completely immersed in Him. God wants us to undress from every perception, bitterness, disappointment and expectation so that He can dress us in His robe of righteousness in order for the exploits to be manifested.
- Praise God for His work of salvation in your life and acknowledge every benefit He has provided to you as a believer.
- Commit your heart to God and allow Him to treat every wound in you. Receive His divine prescription for any ailment He will diagnose and respond in obedience to His instruction.
- Seek God for wisdom to access every divine benefit He has in store for you in this season.
As a community, I want us to commit every church programme we shall have this year to God.
Let’s pray for the Sunday Services, SOE 2016, Bible Studies, Foundation Class, Discipleship, League of the Prophetic training and the leadership trainings. May the work of God in moulding us as vessels of honour be accomplished through each of these forums.
Let us also pray for One Desire that God would imprint His essence as they reach out to affect the community in Nairobi.
