Our prayer life is built on promises……God’s promises to us and our promises to Him. He shows us all through His Word that He is a promise keeper. Galatians 3:14
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
We are now heading toward December 25th at warp speed. I hope that you have been busy giving gifts to the Savior already. I am into planning the week from December 6th to December 12th. We don’t have much time left but there are still so many gifts that we can give Him.
When our prayer life is good with God, we have a peace that passes all understanding. That’s not to say that everything is wonderful, but there is a sweet peace that comes over us that only can come from God regardless of our circumstances.
What priority is your prayer life in your average day? Give yourself an honest answer if the highest priority was 1 and the lowest was 10. Did you give yourself a number? Good, we are ready to start.
Now that we know that prayer is a personal conversation between us and the Lord, I want to remind you that prayer is also Praise. Praise to our heavenly Father for who He is.
Prayer is a conversation between you and God. It is from your heart to His heart and in order for it to qualify as communication, it must have all the components of the communication cycle.
Do you ever have a spiritual “Pity Party” and think that you are the only one who is doing anything worthwhile for the Lord? Elijah had a good party in I Kings 19:10:
10. And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
Calling all Vessels
Are you fulfilled or is your vessel partially empty? Are you spiritually, emotionally and physically full or on the empty side? Are you looking for something to help fill empty spaces in your life? If you are looking, then this might be your life-changing day!
Once you are sure that you are a born again believer in Jesus Christ, the next step that you need to take is to look at our target.
Who is your legacy going to? Whose life do you want to impact?
We are trying to identify what our legacy will look like. What does it look like now and what we want it to look like?
I guess we each need to examine ourselves, our attitudes, our temperaments, our hobbies, our traditions, our history, our habits and most importantly, our faith to see what our legacy looks like now.
