James 5:16….. The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much….
If your dream doesn’t intimidate you then its insulting to God. Dream big well knowing that your Father in Heaven isn’t limited to anything.
It doesn’t matter what style you reach out to Him for the desires of your heart as along as its not with selfish intentions, He will hear your cry. He said ask and you will receive, knock and the door will open, seek and you will find and He has never changed His mind about His promise towards you.
Quit reasoning and justifying yourself just do you. Jacob lived off his sophistry until he met his match Laban. He decided to go back home when he realised he had had enough and besides there was no more race left in him to keep hiding and running from his brother. Fast forward, Jacob wrestled with an angel the entire night and he left with both a limp and a blessing. His persistance paid off.
Genesis 32: 26
The man said, “Let me go; it’s daybreak.”Jacob said, “I’m not letting you go ’til you bless me.”
Abraham whose faith everyone commends persistently “bargained” with Lord for the few righteous people left in sodom
Abraham approached [the Lord] and said, “Will You really sweep away the righteous with the wicked ? 24 Suppose there are fifty righteous [people] within the city; will You really sweep it away and not spare it for the sake of the fifty righteous who are in it? ……….
And his bargain deal went as low as 10 people and a handful of people were saved because he never gave up.
David danced in an undignified manner and his craziness paid off. He found favor before God.
Elijah prayed for rain and he had to check several times whether there was a sign and on the seventh time he saw a cloud the size of a hand. Many people would have stopped by the third or second time not Elijah, he pushed on til he got what he prayed for.
Do not wait for the man of God or any other middle man to. Approach Him as His child and with child like faith tell Him what your dealing with. He is a faithful God and He is able
