Establishing The Rule Of God Through Prayer – Seeds Of Destiny Devotional, 10th May 2023 By Pastor Paul Enenche
SCRIPTURE: Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: One benefit of prayer is the establishment of the Rule and Reign of God on earth.
The Scripture admonishes us to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). And you know, one thing you do without ceasing is breathing. This implies that we are expected to pray as we breathe. Prayer should be our spiritual breath.
Now, one benefit of prayer is the establishment of the Rule and Reign of God on earth (Matthew 6:10).
What then will the establishment of the Rule and Reign of God achieve at the place of prayer?
1. It is the establishment of the climate and condition of heaven on earth.
Prayer establishes the climate or condition of heaven on earth. Prayer can make a person’s life to be like heaven on earth. Deuteronomy 11:20-21 says;
And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates: That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.
Heaven-on-earth experience for a person, family, and nation can happen through the altar of prayer.
2. It is the fulfilment of the purpose of God in the earth.
At the place of prayer, we establish the Rule of God on earth. Also, at the place of prayer, we fulfil God’s Purpose on the earth.
At the place of prayer, we make God do what He wants to do the way He wants to do it.
Psalm 89:34 says;
My covenant will I not break nor alter the things that have gone out of my lip.
It is at the place of prayer that Psalm 89:34 happens in your life. The place of prayer is where what God has purposed is enforced to happen.
My counsel is, ensure your prayer life is on fire.
Remember this: One benefit of prayer is the establishment of the Rule and Reign of God on earth.
1. Refuse to live a prayerless life.
2. Always ask God for the grace and discipline to maintain constant prayer fire.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for Your Word to me today. I ask for the grace to establish Your Rule and Reign on earth by prayer, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
