PRAYING FROM HEAVEN
Brothers allow me to show you what our Lord Jesus
would teach you about your prayer life.
Jesus gave unto you and I a great gift when he taught
us how we should pray. Yes we all have read and heard the Lords prayer that he
gave unto his disciples when they asked him to teach them to pray.
But we born again children of God should have grown
past that simple prayer that he gave his disciples. Please recall Jesus telling
them that they could not understand some things at that point in their
Jesus was speaking to men of God who followed him
through most of his three years of ministering unto the world. But they were
yet unsaved and the Holy Spirit of God had not yet come upon them.
Remember that Jesus told them on the day of Pentecost,
as he was about to ascend to Heaven, that they were to go to Jerusalem and wait
for the Holy Spirit to come upon them. They waited in Jerusalem some 40 days
before they received the baptism of the Spirit.
We on the other hand who believed upon the name of
Jesus and was born again do now have access to all the knowledge, wisdom, and
understanding of God. Jesus told us that he would abide in us and that we would
abide in Jesus in Heaven.
Brothers now does He live inside you and I and you and
I also live and abide inside Jesus in Heaven as he sits at the right hand of
God the Father.
As we read and meditate on the following scriptures
please see yourself with Jesus looking down on your on self as you go through
this life here on earth.
God has given to you and I the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge
of him. We have this wisdom and knowledge in us right now. This has been
revealed to our spirits at this time. We must learn how to use God's wisdom and
knowledge in our daily walk here on earth.
We must now know that we have inherited his
understanding as saints of God. Our spiritual eyes have been enlightened. Now
are we to see with our spiritual eyes our calling.
Brothers please remember that our spirit lives inside
our fleshly body. Our flesh has eyes and ears, but these are not the eyes that
you and I are to see with.
It is our spirit eyes that have been enlightened. We
are to use these eyes to see all that Jesus sees from Heaven. We must learn to
use these eyes to walk through this life.
By using our spirit eyes we can avoid the pitfalls and
trappings of this evil world. Our flesh eyes can not see these. Looking down
from Heaven we can know what lies ahead of us in our walk.
Verse 19 above says that His exceeding great power has
been given to us-ward who believe. He will use that power that has been put
inside the spirit of every believer.
We are the church, Jesus is the head and you and I are
the body of Christ Jesus.
Brothers stop now and meditate on the fact that you
are to do all things through your spirit mind, eyes, ears, and body. Not your
fleshly body. Our fleshly mind is corrupt since the fall of Adam in the Garden.
You and I can not trust our fleshly mind for it is still carnal.
It is only our spirit mind that has been born again
and been given all power to see and know what God and Jesus knows. His
knowledge, His wisdom, and His understanding of ALL things.
Brothers we have power through the Holy Spirit to
tread on serpents and scorpions as we walk through this life. Over all the
power of the enemy and nothing can hurt us when we use and walk in the
exceeding power that is ours.
spiritually blessed in heavenly places in Christ because we abide there with
him, even though we are also here inside this fleshly body.
We were raised up together with Christ Jesus to sit
with him in heavenly places. We sit with him now. We can look down from heaven
and see with our spirit eyes what we have need to pray for. Praise God!
Brothers we are to serve God on this earth and by
being in service to him now we are furnishing our heavenly home in heaven. We
must always be heavenly minded not earthly minded.
Carnally minded is to be fleshly minded and this is
death. But spiritually minded is life and peace. Do you see who we are to be,
spirit not flesh.
We are to think only on these things.
Faith is what we walk in. The word of God is to
always be inside us. The word of God is in our mouth, and in our heart. Do you
recall that his Holy Word tells us in the bible that what is in our hearts is
spoken from our mouth.
Brothers all power is ours. We have the power to see
and know everything that lies ahead in the path that we are on. We are in Jesus
in Heaven looking down on our life here on earth. It is only by using this
power and the sight God has given us that we can avoid the enemy at ever turn.
We do not have to be tempted by the things of this
earth if we are walking in the spirit and not in the flesh.
God bless you my brothers. Pray in the spirit from
heaven for your needs, because your spirit knows what you have need of because
God's very on Holy Spirit is teaching us all things.
