Often we may think that a majority or minority influence is decided only in numbers. That maybe true in the secular world but in the kingdom we are always a majority because of christ within us. We have been given power, privilege and position. As we learn to function in God’s presence we begin to realize the power and reality of the kingdom of God is within us. Rest reveals the devils defeat, and we can function from this place of strength regardless of all that is against you. In Micah 4:9 gives 3 perspective questions, Why do you cry aloud? Is there not a King within thee? and has your counselor perished? The Holy spirit would ask these questions of us. We don’t cry as those who have no hope! We have the king of Kings within! When we take our eyes off of God our counselor, we begin to lose our rest. Prayer reconnect us to the realities of God. Prayer is the catalyst for everything in our life. Prayer releases the King with-in and He always speaks a life transforming word and revives dry bones.
The apostle Paul’s prayer was asking for strength to speak as a child of the King! In Ephesians 6:19 “And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel“. Intimidation or insecurity robs from the manifestation of God. People need to know about the treasure that LIVES within you! The internal warfare that wells up can be met with – “Lord give me utterance to reveal your mysteries”. God promises in Psalms 81.10 if we open our mouth wide HE will fill it!
Turtles are an interesting example – in danger they hide away in their shell till everything calms down. This is a great defensive tool, but for the believer we can’t shut down when the pressure comes. Don’t be hijacked by self consciousness and analysis, second guessing in hesitation. God has prepared a word in season for all those who are weary today! In Mathew 18:19 “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. Fellowship with Christ and lean on him and He will give you a word that will release His kingdom on earth. Release joy, healing, peace, rest, wisdom and love – agree with Christ in your heart and see the nature of God be manifested and experienced personally. You are needed were you are, don’t lose sight that with God nothing is impossible; 1John 4:4 “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world”.
