We must be willing to pray, believe God and risk the challenges that go hand in hand with great victories. If
we add it all up, our gains have been greater than our losses. Getting to the place of
turnaround will require that we stop playing it safe. We need an unrestrained connection with
God in order to win!
1. Pave our path with prayer: Unchecked and unchallenged, disappointment will terrorize and cripple
It hurts when it feels as if God doesn’t hear us, but we can’t use getting our way as a measure of His
love. Like me, maybe some of your prayers haven’t been scriptural or perhaps there is a greater
role you need to play in birthing your change. For instance, praying for financial blessings but
refusing to make a budget is a sure sign that you aren’t sold out to getting your prayer answered.
You have to do the painful part and He’ll do the God part.
When all is said and done, we must never forget that we pray from a limited perspective. It is only
through connection with God that we can pray from a place that is beyond our finite understanding.
So purpose to create a dynamic prayer life. Find the ways to maintain communication and
connection with God. We may not all be prayer warriors, but we are all called to pray His will into
the earth. The other day, I heard a minister say that in the times we don’t know what to pray, we
should pray for wisdom. When we don’t have the energy to pray, ask for strength. When all is said
and done, pray to get and stay connected.
2. Remember each day’s new mercies: We can’t allow the “Nos” of yesterday to determine
what we are willing to ask for today and tomorrow. God is committed to bringing and sustaining us
in the fulfillment of His purposes for our lives
Regardless of how many times we’ve previously gone to the well of His mercy, there will be an
untouched and endless supply the next morning. His mercy is not subject to the wear and tear of
life. It won’t break down after 90,000 miles. Like His love, it endures!
