Ephesians 6:10,18 NLT A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.
In the Christian life we battle against rulers and authorities (the powerful evil forces of fallen angels headed by the devil), who is a vicious fighter. As we see in God’s Word, we must be strong in the Lord and in His mightier power. We continue to pray in the Spirit of God at all times and on every occasion. We must stay alert and be persistent in ur prayers for all believers everywhere.
God has given His people a vision to do His perfect will and with His Spirit, He helps us to see the vision He has given to us: Habakkuk 2:3 NLT The vision is for future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.
God gives us a vision, and we must be determined we will do our part within it. Our expectations must come from God, and at His appointed time He will bring His plan to pass. It may take a number of years for this vision to be born on earth, but we must remember what God has said He will do. Maybe it’s because God is doing things in other people’s lives, which may need to be dealt with first before our vision may come to pass. He may be delivering or strengthening each one of us, preparing us for what maybe ahead. I am sure that God is preparing us to cope with the task He is about to give to us. We must trust Him and have confidence in Him, but it will be in His way and on His time scale. He will never let us down, and we know He never will.
Father, help us to keep our eyes focused upon You at all times. This is a time where we need to call out to You, to help us to be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. We must pray in the Spirit at all times and all occasions. We need to stay alert and be persistent in prayer for all believers everywhere. Help us to keep on the path of Your commandments, and wait for the vision You have prepared for our lives, to come to pass at Your appointed time. May the honour, glory, praise, joy, of the Lord Jesus Christ, be Yours now and forever more. Amen
