Yesterday, I told you that unless your prayer is covered by scripture, you will not receive. The Bible says he who does not work should not eat. Have you seen a preacher asking God to follow his preaching with signs while all he does is share testimonies and traditions? There is no amount of fasting and praying that can get signs to follow such. The Bible says in Jeremiah 1:12 that God is watching His WORD not the preacher. God confirms the Word and not your opinion. Acts 14:3 says God gave witness to the WORD OF HIS GRACE by signs and wonders not to Paul and Barnabas.
The amount of the correct knowledge of God you have when you pray determines the level of your breakthrough. Romans 10:17 says faith comes by hearing the Word of God. This means that for you to have faith when you pray, you need to stock your spirit with the word. The Word of God gives birth to faith in God. Ephesians 5:27 says the way by which the Lord Jesus purifies His church is through the washing of water by the Word. The word of God is the thing that purifies your heart. This clearly shows the importance of the Word.
Earlier, I had told you that two major things cause prayer breakdowns, namely ignorance and wrong thinking. Ignorance gives birth to all kinds of wrong prayers while accurate knowledge of the Word removes ignorance. Deep and constant meditation on the Word will cause your mind to become renewed to the truths of the New Testament. A renewed mind is the best aid to faith and prayer. It takes time and effort to do this, but if you pay the price you will enjoy the rewards.
PRAYER: Lord, open my eyes to where my Word is! I receive divine sensitivity and the wisdom to wage war correctly with the Word in Jesus’ name. Amen!
