It can be no truer that, “you don’t war with (mere) words, but The Word”. There is absolutely nothing like a prayer warrior who only prays with mere words. Trust me, he is only in for a major exercise rather than results. You aren’t praying if you aren’t praying The Word.
The Bible says, “Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly....” (Col. 3:16).
Whatever it is that you desire, it is not enough to lock up yourself night and day ‘praying’ mere words. Reason is simple, The Word is His will. And His word says, “And this is the confidence we have in Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us”. As Christians, it’s time to stop making God seem as a liar and untrue to those who are without.
I think that it is only logic to do something the right way. If we have the right way to getting results, its only wisdom to do it.
Now, I will say that, the word you have stuffed in you will not only help you pray aright but help during trying times. I will paint a simple scenario as per this. I had so many scriptures as regards a particular need I had, and so one day, while I was having my bath, I started to feel discouraged and almost completely down within a very short while. Barely 5 minutes after, a scripture sprung in my heart and immediately, my hope was revitalized.
I was baffled and it kept me wondering all day. What if I had nothing in my heart? What if I didn’t have that scripture in me? I would have gradually wallowed in discouragement till depression took over. God forbid.
Sis, what do you have in you? What you have in you is your weapon and note, it can never be taken away from you. It is your rescue. Stay with the word and have ‘it’ in you.
The WORD is your ONLY hope. Even if people give you hope and encouragement, what happens when they are gone? You are only left with what is inside you.
Have an amazing week loaded with testimonies for you!
Lots of love,
