Accelerate through Prayer
Your season (time) determines what you do. Although Elijah told Ahab to eat and drink, he knew that as a prophet, it was time for him to pray. 1st Kings 18:41-42.
Jesus asked “Could you not tarry with me for 1 hr? Matt 26:40. Although, sleeping in not a bad thing, the disciples did not understand that it was time to pray and not sleep.
At times, it is easier to seek short term respite from your issues. Luke 22:45. Prayer is the right response to the issues of life.
If you respond immediately and appropriately you will be delivered without loss. Jesus prayed that Peter did not fall away. He responded immediately & appropriately to the devil’s attack so Peter was saved. Jerusalem did not know her day of visitation because she did not position herself properly (no word from God in 400 years due to spiritual decline) so they were unable to recognize the Messiah.
The kingdom is accessed by those who are tenacious.
Life will give you what you fight for and not what you deserve Matt 11:12.
There are 2 forces that influence men: the world or Kingdom of God (God’s realm, rule & agenda per time).
Wherever you find yourself, you should consider if it is God’s agenda. If so, recognise God’s goodness and thank Him. If it’s not God’s agenda, then it is the world’s agenda. You therefore need to enforce and establish God’s agenda.
This is done by prayer and then replicated by faith in practical terms. Prayer is a journey that leads to rest which is manifestation.
Stages in a prayer journey are burden, travail and then warfare.
