When My People Humble Themselves and Pray
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wanted to share a post about the ‘battle’ in ‘high places’. Was driving to a rather distant location for work and the Lord had plenty of time to get my attention. He just wanted to remind me that the battle in ‘high places’ is very real-and is currently being fought with great zeal. While one day the Lord will completely wipe away all evil and darkness from our world (Rev. 21:4, Rev. 20:11-15) until that time however we are to fight the powers of darkness with ‘intensity’, through prayer and obedience to Him.
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
He was showing me that battle in the heavens and on earth is ‘intense’ and so many are not aware of this…we lose sight of the battles that are truly going on around us (myself included-I needed to be reminded).
When we pray, the Lord sees our fight to stop the advancement of darkness and is delighted, but because we don’t always ‘see’ the battle, we can get discouraged and think our prayers don’t enter the battleground.
He just wanted to let us know, when we pray as His children- in the Lords name, we truly are entering the fight that is pushing back evil that is trying to destroy our children and our nation(s).
John 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
1 Peter 5:8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
Don’t give up, don’t stop praying…He is saying our proclamations in prayer are spiritual weapons that are truly accomplishing great things-powers are being pushed back…and lives are being eternally saved.
2 Corinthians 10:4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
He wanted to add one more strategy point. Remember, we are seated with Christ Eph. 2:6, so we can visualize we are looking down at our world with the Lord. We would probably agree, most would be unaware of the battle going on around them… and when one is in a battle with an enemy they cannot see, it could be discouraging-to say the least. Now, look down, and you see groups of people praying in one accord, pushing back the darkness and evil. The greater the army, the greater victory you have and the quicker you see real progress. You actually start to see results when whole groups of people pray as an army-progress in made…and in most instances…we see the results of our fight.
The spiritual snowball begins to take place. We begin to see the spiritual battles around us are being won…and the fire –revelation in our hearts is now set at high octane… The Lords glory burning within us.
Love it when life is not that complicated and problems are resolved by workable solutions. Let’s keep praying, not just for solutions to our problems, but for the army of God to join together- the only way to truly bring in the Kingdom of God, His heavenly victory.
