i have been reminded over and over this week that the store houses of heaven are full to the brim. ready to be poured out on those who ask.
just waiting .
i have been reminded over and over this week that God does not force His will or His blessings upon us, He wants us and needs us to ask. (you receive not, because you ask not)
i have been reminded over and over this week that prayer enables heavenly beings to act on our behalf, against darkness. how many times have i had the opportunity to ask God to send angels to fight for me or another (something they love to do on God's behalf ) and failed to do so?
i have been reminded over and over this week that just because an answer does not come immediately does not mean that it is not on its way. the story of Daniel anyone? it took, what? three weeks for Michael to break through the heavenly battle to get to Daniel? what if Daniel had stopped praying and waiting for God to answer after one week?
i have been thinking about these things ( and many more) this week. i have been reminded, reaffirmed and flat out told about the importance of being faithful in prayer.
God is ready, His warriors are ready, the storehouses of heaven are ready!
if i would just seek Him. ask Him. trust Him.
there are battles to be fought and battles to be won.
all of heaven is waiting to act. waiting to be sent. ready to answer the prayers of God's people.
"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you." Matthew 7:7
"Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you." 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2
"I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.
