“but sought the God of his father and walked in his commandments, and not according to the practices of Israel. Therefore the Lord established the kingdom in his hand. And all Judah brought tribute to Jehoshaphat, and he had great riches and honour.”
The world is hungry for justice and righteousness in the chaos and turmoil it daily witnesses.
The world observes and reads us as Christians right now if we are carrying the kingdom Spirit in our lives because it is spiritually perceived as a light in the darkness.
While the world is increasingly fearful of lack and propelled into hoarding we offer the words of generosity and provision that God promises and therefore bring hope and peace.
Our word is always better as it comes from the heart of God and is heard and recognised by the spirit within others and it uplifts.
Believing in God as our provider we know that as we pour out He will pour in.
He wants us to go out and be catapulted wide and far in communities where heaven and earth can agree and demonstrate the kingdom that will honour and bring Glory to Jesus the king.
Now is a time of releasing the brakes and going to establish the kingdom like the disciples at Pentecost. On fire, proclaiming boldly, speaking out the gospel.
Evoke life, hope and challenge others into expansive knowledge of truth. What we carry is what everyone wants.
We can raise up expectation from poverty stricken, small minded survival mode.
We must not miss our moment of visitation by being passive. Small prayers, small expectations get small answers.
God’s desire is for us to thrive and flourish. It happens when we come together.
Two or three and I am in your midst. Therefore pray dangerous prayers that He may stretch out His hand and manifest Himself dynamically.
“For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.””
We have to take every opportunity for global praying in the big picture for nations knowing that big prayers answered will be answered in us also.
Jesus modelled and even prayed for the belief of those in the future not just the now.
““I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word,”
God responds to prayer and moves. He pours out blessing when we are available and willing to be His conduit and outbreaks of power bring Spiritual riches and light.
The illustration shows our prayers as conduits for God to pour out His blessing into His kingdom and for us to emanate light that pushes back the darkness.
Three Scriptures that come to mind:
“but sought the God of his father and walked in his commandments, and not according to the practices of Israel. Therefore the Lord established the kingdom in his hand. And all Judah brought tribute to Jehoshaphat, and he had great riches and honour.” 2 Chronicles 17:4-5 ESV
“For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” Matthew 18:20 ESV
““I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word,”. John 17:20 ESV
