Are You Willing To Pay The Price?

Most Christians want to receive revelation from God. But they are not willing to pay the price. They are not willing to follow Christ’s example in prayer. Others do not feel they are worthy, or it is possible to receive revelation from God. Still others do not know what they must do to receive revelation.

The Father desires to pour revelation knowledge through you. As one of his sons or daughters, he desires for you to come to Him as Jesus did to receive revelation and direction. Jesus said, “The Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.” – John 5:19 (NIV)

If Jesus recognized that he could do nothing except what the Father revealed to him in prayer, how much more must we recognize that we can not and should not do anything without waiting upon God in prayer to receive the revelation and direction we need in the circumstances we face. The reason why many Christians are living in defeat is because they are still relying upon their own strength and their own understanding. They are using carnal weapons instead of the mighty weapons of prayer and fasting.

To become the same powerful, spiritual warrior as Jesus, and live in the same dimension of revelation, you must use the same weapon Jesus used… prayer!

You must strip yourself of all self righteousness and spiritual pride. You must come to a place in your life where you are willing to say as Jesus said, “By myself I can do nothing”. You must come to a place in your life where you are no longer relying upon your own strength or upon your own understanding. You must be willing to forsake your way of doing things and develop a day-to-day dependence upon Christ, where you are willing to spend time alone with Him… even if it means getting up at 2 or 3 in the morning,  or spending all night in prayer if necessary. You must be willing to wait before Him in his presence seeking his direction in the battles you are facing… seeking to know his will, seeking to know the things you should say and do… seeking to receive a clearer understanding of his Word.

As you come to know, rely and totally depend upon Christ in prayer as Jesus did in the Father, you are going to be able to face your circumstances from the same powerful position of knowing as Jesus.

You will be able to face every circumstance, every trial, every testing knowing that you will not be defeated… that every victory is yours… that as a Son of the Living God, He has given you all power and authority over the enemy! You will be able to look at family situations, financial problems, physical and mental problems knowing that God has not left you alone… that as you use your weapons of prayer and fasting all the hosts of heaven will join you in combat! You will be able to take the victories you have won in prayer for your body, for your finances, for your family, for every need!

I love you my Jesus,
Amen
