Scripture For Today:
1 Corinthians 11:5
“But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is the same as having her head shaved.”
Using Your Prayers Like A Sniper Uses a Bullet pt 5
We have been talking these past few days about “Using your prayers like a sniper uses a bullet.”
Yesterday, I left off with a description of the “armor of God” and how it applies to YOU being Spiritually prepared to engage and destroy the enemy…
The point I wanted to make, but we just ran out of time yesterday, is this…
YOUR WORDS MATTER.
But your words ONLY matter when they are lined up with God’s Word ON the matter.
You cannot say one thing and mean another.
You cannot claim one thing and then deny it in the next breath.
You need to be “the same, coming and going out!”
You cannot claim one thing in church and something else when you’re confronted with the world. It will not work
For example, if you have a pain in your back that is stopping you from doing things you want to do – you can do two things…
1. You can claim the promises in the Word concerning healing. Concerning taking authority over your body and keeping it under subjection. Concerning claiming that Jesus bore your pain on that cross so you don’t have to. Concerning taking authority over the pain and COMMANDING (not requesting – commanding) that pain leave your body because it does not have your permission to be there!
2. You can claim all of that and then walk outside and someone sees you and asks, “How ya’ doing brother (or sister)?” And you go talking about your bad back!
You just negated the whole thing! You just told that person, the devil, the angels and Jesus Himself that you did not believe the prayer and words you spoke!
The devil just turns to Jesus and says, “I told you so…”
And there is nothing Jesus can do… you gave the devil authority over that situation with your negative words!
“Well, what should I say brother Bob? The pain is real and I’m hurting bad…?”
You lay hold of the word of God. You start quoting scripture at that pain, the devil behind the pain and at the devil himself!
Something along the lines of, “I tell you one thing – this pain that has been in my back is gone in the name of Jesus. I’m not moved by what I see or what I feel. I’m only moved by God’s Holy Word and in His Word it says, “By His Stripes, I was healed.” So if I was healed that means I’m healed now. Praise God! I give no devil, no demon and no spirit of pain ANY authority to be in my body! My body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost and pain has no right to be there. I declare, in the Name of Jesus, that HIS WORD is true, not the lies of the devil. Praise God! I AM healed, in Jesus Mighty Name. In fact, I’m so healed right now, I want to lay hands on YOU and impart some of this anointing that’s on me to YOU – praise God! I’ve gotten a double portion because I know in my heart that I AM HEALED and now I’m putting ACTION with my Faith and I’ll pray for you or anyone else that needs healing…Glory to God!”
You get to doing things like that – no demon from hell will want to be anywhere around you. Amen! Praise GOD!
Ok, I’m out of time. I pray you got something out of this series. That is what I meant by “Using your prayers like a sniper uses a bullet!” Amen!
