Beloved, are you ready for war? Hahahaha. Someone is shocked at the mention of “war”, wait until you read the main message of the day.
We are at war with the opposite kingdom. Yes at war. Our Lord Jesus fought and won the battle for us therefore we are at peace with God but at great war with kingdom of darkness.
That’s why Satan will want to inflict sickness, poverty, confusion, discrimination among children of God. But for them that are wise they fight with the sword of the Word- that is reading and praying.
So in today’s prayer session we will be considering ways on how to spend time with God so as to be better equip when satan will advance into your camp with war.
If you are ready, let’s discover more:
Practical Suggestions On How To Spend Time With God
Intimate fellowship with Christ was the purpose of both creation and the cross: “God… has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord… ” (1 Corinthians 1:9b) Here are a few suggestions on how to cultivate that intimacy:
- Make the time regular — preferably in the morning:
Set a goal of 5 days a week, minimum. Solitude and silence should grace the time. If you are new at it, start with 10 minutes. The time will pass surprisingly quickly and soon you will find yourself expanding it to more.
- Have a specific place where you can be alone:
- Include in your time:
Confession of sin
Petition (asking God for answers)
Intercession (prayers for others) – Make a list of people
- Read and meditate over Scripture:
Set up an ordered sequence. I find I get more when I take a slow, measured, and in depth approach, rather than race through a specified number of chapters a day. Begin by meditating from a Psalm and a portion of a Proverb. As your appetite (and allotted time) expands, you may also want to add a segment from the New Testament. Once this pattern is well established, you may then want to add a portion from the Old Testament.
Write down what you are gleaning from the Scriptures. I find using different colored pens to circle and underline principles and key words or ideas is helpful.
With appropriate passages ask, “What does this text teach me about Jesus?” Write it down.
Write out a prayer that relates to the passage. Also, jot down specific answers to prayer.
Record applications you are making from your time of prayer and meditation on the Scriptures.
QUESTION: If you are not consistent in your time alone with God, are you willing to begin now by taking the necessary time and effort to develop constancy in this critical area of your life? why we must we do that? let discover the “why” below:
“Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels.” Revelation 12:7
War always will rage between the two great sovereignties until one or other be crushed. Peace between good and evil is an impossibility; the very pretence of it would, in fact, be the triumph of the powers of darkness. Michael will always fight; his holy soul is vexed with sin, and will not endure it. Jesus will always be the dragon’s foe, and that not in a quiet sense, but actively, vigorously, with full determination to exterminate evil.
All His servants, whether angels in heaven or messengers on earth, will and must fight; they are born to be warriors—at the cross they enter into covenant never to make truce with evil; they are a warlike company, firm in defence and fierce in attack. The duty of every soldier in the army of the Lord is daily, with all his heart, and soul, and strength, to fight against the dragon.
The dragon and his angels will not decline the affray; they are incessant in their onslaughts, sparing no weapon, fair or foul. We are foolish to expect to serve God without opposition: the more zealous we are, the more sure are we to be assailed by the myrmidons of hell. The church may become slothful, but not so her great antagonist; his restless spirit never suffers the war to pause; he hates the woman’s seed, and would fain devour the church if he could. The servants of Satan partake much of the old dragon’s energy, and are usually an active race. War rages all around, and to dream of peace is dangerous and futile.
Glory be to God, we know the end of the war. The great dragon shall be cast out and for ever destroyed, while Jesus and they who are with Him shall receive the crown. Let us sharpen our swords to-night, and pray the Holy Spirit to nerve our arms for the conflict. Never battle so important, never crown so glorious. Every man to his post, ye warriors of the cross, and may the Lord tread Satan under your feet shortly!
Beloved, thanks be to God because the end of the war is to our favour. Yes! to our favour. That is why we must up and doing in prayers, in acts of goodness, in righteous living and what have you. Beloved let us make sure that the fire on our coal is ever on and be charging daily with prayer.
May God answer us when we call and be gracious to us now and forever.
Beloved, pray on. Remember it will a foolhardily of us to expect peace between the two kingdom- of God and Satan. So always be in the Spirit to uncover their plans. Praise the Lord forever.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
