Scripture For Today:
1 Peter 3:7
“Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.”
Using Your Prayers Like A Sniper Uses a Bullet pt 3
We have been talking these past few days about “Using your prayers like a sniper uses a bullet.”
I want you to notice a common element in everything I’ve been sharing with you about getting your prayers answered and answered quickly… YOUR WORDS.
For almost the past month or month and a half, I’ve been focusing on YOUR WORDS. And your words need to match GOD’s WORD.
If you are saying things other than what is in God’s Word, you are walking in unbelief – not Faith. If you are not walking in Faith, then you cannot tell the devil to do anything – because he KNOWS you don’t believe what you are saying!
If you are walking by Faith and not by sight, then you are walking IN Faith. You are confessing what the Word says. You are denying the “facts” you see in the natural and aligning your words with what the Word says the end result will be.
Have you ever had an argument with someone and you are trying to lay out the “facts” to them, but they don’t want to hear it? What usually happens?
You throw up your hands and walk away. Right?
Now, picture the devil arguing with you about receiving your prayers as being answered. You are not accepting his “facts.” You are denying his “facts.” He is trying to convince you these facts are the truth concerning your situation.
But when you have SCRIPTURE to stand on, you can remind him what the Word of God says!
You start quoting the TRUTH and not the “facts.” You start telling HIM what the end result is going to be. You start FIRING OFF your prayers like that and I can guarantee that he will not stay around you but will FLEE.
That’s what the Word says, right? Resist the devil and he will flee.
Well, you can’t resist him with YOUR words! Your words are firing blanks at the enemy! He will sit there all day and tell you what a fool you are. And eventually, you’ll start to believe it!
But, when you start using the Word of God and start firing off scripture after scripture that SAYS what you are believing… those Words are like bullets being fired directly at the devil or demon.
What does the Word say in Ephesians 6:10-17?
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
When you take a stand like that, I guarantee you the devil will flee. Guaranteed!
We’ll take it up there again tomorrow because I want to show you something from these verses that will bless you immensely. Amen!
