"His power at work in us who believe. This power in us is the same as the mighty strength which He used when He raised Christ from death...." - Ephesians 1:20
You have resurrection power attached to your prayer life! You can look to things that are absolutely dead and pray forth eternal LIFE! The same power in us is the same potency God demonstrated when He raised Jesus out of the grave.
"And John bore witness, "I saw the Spirit descend as a dove from heaven, and it remained on him." - Mark 1:10
Being a person on whom the Holy Spirit can remain has a cost. (Cost in this context has nothing to do with works. It is passion for Him and a reverence for His presence where every move we make has Him in mind.)
"Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." - Hebrews 11:1
We've been trained to think that reality is what we can see. Actually, though, the person who is not living in faith is the one who is not living in reality.
The life of grace far surpasses mere mental belief in the truths of God -- it frees my spirit to fly powerfully above all things.
I shut the door on all the distractions of this life, the cares of this world, the busyness of my daily affairs and anything else that would keep me from pressing into God.
Since I am committed to prayer, I refuse to give up in the middle of battle and am determined to receive my reward.
"He who breaks through has gone up before them; they will break through and pass the gate and go out by it. Then their king will pass on before them, the Lord at their head." - Micah 2:13
Our standard is Jesus, and because of this, there is always going to be the need for breakthrough in regards to our being like Him, manifesting His works, and walking in His stature. Life is about breaking through to a better, higher and deeper place with God, to see more of God's activity in the earth.
It is a time to press in for more, to ignite the fires of intercession and grab hold of communion, devotion, pursuit, and expectation that will foster the glory of God in your life. Be intentional about your approach, set aside time to seek the Lord for His breakthroughs for you. God wants you to go higher, make things better and bring an increase in His activity in your life more than ever!
