1 John 5:14-15
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him,
that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask,
we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
Feasting on My Word not only sets the course for your daily life, it also guarantees answers to your petitions when prayed in accordance to My will. What is My will? It is My Word and the more of it you digest, the more effectual your prayers become.
In the spirit realm, My declared Word shifts, shakes, and transitions everything to which it is sent. A forceful power releases into the atmosphere sending catastrophic missiles into the enemy's second heaven domain bringing irreparable damage.
It is no wonder that Satan hates Word based prayer and declaration. Do not be ignorant of his cunning devices as he instigates situations and circumstances in your life to keep you from your times with Me. He recognizes the power that comes forth when you come away and yield to My Spirit.
Busyness and distractions are his weapons of choice used to keep you from prayer and My Word. Before you are even aware of it, an apathetic attitude slithers into your midst stealing your prayer life and Word time. Be alert in the Spirit, discern his strategies, and render them powerless before they gain a foothold in your life.
Take the sword of the Spirit, which is My Word, and decapitate the enemy's head declaring him defeated and stripped of power. Lift up My Word declaring it over your life, family, job, school, church, and yourself.
I hear you when you pray and declare My Word. Be bold and confident knowing that what you ask for, you receive!
Father, what a promise...to receive my petitions if they are in accordance to Your will! I begin right now! Through the blood of Jesus, I come boldly into the throne of grace. I ask for wisdom because Your Word says, "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him." I ask for the wisdom to live each day victoriously and effectually for my Kingdom call. It is so awesome to know that the God of the universe, the creator of all things hears me when I pray and blesses me with His answers!
