Through it all, I continued to praise God and believe Him for deliverance. But even in doing this, I forgot to use my God given authority. One of the situations seemed minor compared to the others. My daughters phone had stopped charging. I had to charge my battery, give it to her, then charge her battery in my phone. All other functions on her phone worked.
We called to get it replaced through the insurance, but the deductible was more than what we could pay at this time due to all the other hits we took from other circumstances. In my own frustration, I began to feel defeated for a moment. Then the Holy Spirit told me to lay hands on her phone.
I laid hands on the phone and asked God to heal it. I commanded the frequencies and wiring to come into alignment with its original design. I declared that it would charge in Jesus’ name. I did this while it was in my daughter’s hands. When I completed the prayer, I told her to charge it. As soon as she connected the phone, it began to charge. The phone aligned with my prayer! Thank You Jesus!
Understand, I am not boasting in my ability to pray. We all have the authority to pray and speak to the things around us. God wants to perfect all things concerning us, but we usually don’t bring the “little” things to Him.
Psalm 138:8 (NKJV)
8 The Lord will perfect that which concerns me;
Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.
He wants us to pray about everything, not just what we consider major issues.
Philippians 4:6 (NKJV)
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
We are not only to pray, but we are to use our kingdom authority to bring things into order.
Job 22:28 (NKJV)
28 You will also declare a thing,
And it will be established for you;
So light will shine on your ways.
So today I want to encourage you that it is not over. Sometimes things are out of our ability to fix, but it is not the end. We have a God that is bigger than it all. Maybe the “big” issues are taking longer to come to order. What smaller things can you bring to God that will help lighten the load? Make a list of requests, pray, and speak life to those issues!
Father, we thank You for wanting to perfect all things concerning us. Forgive us for not trusting You in the “little” things by our lack of prayer. Help us establish the atmosphere by decreeing Your Word. Help us better understand our kingdom authority and use it to carry Your glory. Thank You for being our deliverer and bringing us order. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
