When You Are Waiting For God’s Direction Remember to PRAY WITHOUT CEASING!

in my walk with God there have been periods of my life where God has allowed me to face certain challenges that I could do nothing about except to pray about it and wait on God in hindsight I could see that certain problems God permitted in my life actually brought me closer to him because they pushed me to seek him they pushed me to get on my knees and dear friend I'd like to tell you that at one point or another you will encounter a situation where you are powerless putting your hands on a situation won't work calling on the resources of friends or acquaintances won't work and it's when you're in a time like this where you should simply pray it sounds so simple but yet we find this to be so difficult to do we should have an attitude whereby if you come across a situation that's threatening and you've done all that you possibly can you pray and you don't just stop there but to put it in biblical terms you praying without ceasing you continue steadfastly in prayer I encourage you to pray through the situation you're in don't get tired don't be weary but continue steadfastly in prayer the Bible in Matthew 5 verse 45 so that you may be sons of your father who is in heaven for he makes his son rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust this verse is telling us that the Lord is kind to All by bringing the sunrise to warm and rainfall to refresh whether a person does what is good or evil now I would like to start by telling you to cherish those good times those moments of sunshine cherish them but remember to stay faithful to the Lord and equally when that season of rain comes in your life it may be unpleasant it may be difficult but remember God remember to stay faithful and I'm sure we can all relate to the statement that life can be bittersweet it has those moments where the Lord gives you that breakthrough those moments where you are blessed with the right thing at just the right time but at times life will also hand you some bitter moments some tough things that will bring you to your knees in tears and in pain now I don't know about you but I would rather have Jesus through the good and the bad I would rather have Jesus Christ through the sunshine and the rain I would rather have Jesus all the time than to only go seeking for him when I need a miracle or when I need to be rescued as believers I encourage you not to treat God as though he is a fire escape he's not there for your convenience he's not there to be accessed in emergencies only no we need to strive to always always be in fellowship with the Lord regardless of whether we are in a season of peace or Warfare as a child of God you should always be found to be a person of Prayer you should always be walking by faith and not by sight you should be led by the spirit and not by the flesh and you should most definitely be found wearing the full armor of God always I say this because Ephesians 6 verse 13. it says therefore take up the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day and having done all to stand firm take note how the Bible says in the evil day not if but in the evil day the devil will almost certainly attack you with an evil day at some point in your life Dr Tony Evans described this particular day by saying the evil day is when all hell breaks loose on you this is a day when your faith is tested a day when what's in you will be exposed the evil day is when you're under spiritual attack it's not a bad day at work it's not someone upsetting you but it's a real targeted spiritual attack and this day will bring out what's within you is it faith or is it fear is it God's word or is it your own wisdom you will find out and this day will bring out what's within you is it Faith or fear is it God's word or your own wisdom you will find out on that day saints of God abide in the presence of the Lord always don't dabble and gamble with your life or your Eternal destiny the devil is out there so we need to remain in Christ we need to always be in Christ now in Exodus 17 the Bible presents us with a powerful lesson on prayer in verses 9 to 13 we are told so Moses said to Joshua use for us men and go out and fight with amalek tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand so Joshua did as Moses told them and fought with amalek while Moses Aaron and her went up to the top of the hill whenever Moses held up his hand Israel prevailed and whenever he lowered his hand amalek prevail but Moses's hands grew weary so they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it while Aaron and her held up his hands one on one side and the other on the other side so his hands were steady until the going down of the Sun and Joshua overwhelmed amalek and his people with the sword there are several lessons to be learned from this passage of scripture Moses went to pray away from the battle to a quiet place he didn't start praying from the front line but he backed off some distance and goes up to a hill to pray and this is the perspective that a child of God needs to have we have to fight our battles in private no need for an audience or Spectators no distractions it's simply them in their prayer closet and that's enough a prayer closet allowing intimacy with God it becomes your war room God acts in response to prayer each time Moses lowered down his hands the amalekites began to win and I believe this was God's way of teaching us that some of the battles we face as children of God are one and lost by prayer or a lack of it so dear friend I encourage you to pray through the situation you're in don't get tired don't be weary but continue steadfastly in prayer [Music]
