TEXT: Jeremiah 29:11-12
KEY VERSE: Jeremiah 33:3 “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not”
Can you see God's promises for you? Can you see God's promises for us? Can you see God's promises for the prayer warriors? “ 'I know the thoughts…,' but these thoughts will not materialize automatically; I know what I want you to become, but it cannot happen just like that; I know what I want you to do: greater works, but it will not happen automatically.
If you want it to happen, 'then shall ye call upon Me, and ye shall go and pray unto Me.'” “Ye shall go” means a positive action; well directed action; prepared action. “Then shall ye call upon Me and shall go and pray unto Me and I will hearken unto you. When that happens, then My thoughts shall be unveiled practically in your life. My thoughts shall be unveiled practically in your home, in your ministry, and among you.”
This scripture assures us that when we pray for one another we shall be healed. We shall be healed from backsliding, from sicknesses, from poverty and from anything afflicting our lives. Some people are afflicted by terminal ailment and are at the verge of death. That protracted ailment has gulped a lot of money and there seems to be no hope of recovery. God is saying, “Pray and I will heal you.
God has thoughts of peace concerning His children. Peace stands for everything good – righteousness, prosperity, victory; advancement, establishment. What were the angels saying in their rejoicing for Christ's birth? They said, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men” (Luke 2:14).
They summed up the virtues of the Gospel, the blessings of the Gospel of Peace.
So, God said it is His thought to give you strength, advancement, victory, establishment, prosperity, power, healing, miracles. These will come to pass “When ye call upon Me; when ye go to pray to Me.” When we rise up to the duty of prayer, the things which God has been planning will begin to manifest. If you wish to know great and mighty things meet with God in prayer.
Satan planned his strategies and has set up his agents for his work against you and the Church. God will reveal these to you through prayers. God says, “Ask of me, I will open your eyes to see individuals, personalities and strategies set up by Satan that will surprise you. I will open your eyes, give you revelations and dreams concerning the future; I will guide you with my eye and direct you so you will know how to conduct yourself.”
Thought for the day: When we pray for one another we shall be healed.
Song for the day: Somebody touched me (2x), Somebody touched my soul.....
Bible reading for the day: Zechariah 7-9; Revelation 19.
