"Admit to your faults one another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." (James 5:16)
When we consecrate ourselves in praise to the Lord God, when we are in that delicious prayer before our Father, we must be very careful and paying close attention to the blessing that God wants to give us through our prayer. At this moment, we feel that God did come.
King Solomon was consecrating a temple, he made a very blessed prayer. In verse 22 of First Kings says: "And Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the congregation of Israel; and extended their hands to the heavens. "(1 Kings 8:22) Then the king blesses all the people of Israel. "It happened, therefore, that after Solomon to do the Lord this prayer and this prayer, on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven, he arose from before the altar of the LORD. And stood upright, and blessed the whole congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying, "(1 Kings 8: 54,55).
When you come into the presence of God in consecration, you should pray directed by the Holy Spirit, who learned about that understanding of God through His word. Because when we pray, the Lord God speaks to us, as He did Solomon. When King Solomon finished praying lifted his hands toward the congregation of Israel, and blessed them.
"Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that said; not failed one word of all his good promise, which he spake by his servant Moses. "(1 Kings 8:56) Understand well. If the Lord God has honored His servant Moses in such a way that none of His words fell from that handed him the more honor the Lord of all the words that gave us written in the Holy Bible, exactly those that He quickens and your heart that did take notice.
When you understand that this blessing written in the Holy Bible is his pray to God about it. But if the blessing does not come, ask the Lord, ask Him to show what is disturbing to be blessed. Sin may be, sometimes not, perhaps lack of understanding of the Word, or sometimes God wants to show you something, but hangs on you a spiritual distraction. "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." (Hosea 4: 6)
My dear beloved, we must understand that we have the right and duty as sons and daughters of God, to take possession of the blessings secured by Jesus on Calvary's cross, blessing those paid the price of blood. "Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows bore; and we esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed "(Isaiah 53: 4,5). Nobody would pay that much for so little. Do not you think?
Then, in a single sentence, with determination, truly believing in the word of God seriously, without fear or hesitation, tell the devil, "Devil, get your dirty paws off my life, take all that is yours and beat a hasty retreat in the name of the LORD JESUS. "Our Savior Jesus Christ has assured us that authority over darkness. "And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name shall they cast out devils." (Mark 16:17)
King Solomon was opening the understanding of its people. "The LORD our God be with us as he was with our fathers; not forsake us, and lead us not. Inclining our hearts to you, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers. And let these my words, that I prayed before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant and the cause of his people Israel, each on his day . "(1 Kings 8: 57-59) Solomon did not withdraw his prayer.
Beloved, do not remove your prayer. Prayed the prayer of faith, do not back up his words, believe. "Admit to your faults one another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." (James 5:16) Your words will be before the LORD.
"For all the peoples of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and there is none else." (1 Kings 8:60) His success is a testament to your family, friends and many others who hear about the power of God .
"And all thy heart is with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and keep his commandments, as at this day." (1 Kings 8:61) Have a whole heart before God, otherwise he, you do not will walk in the statutes and commandments of God, that which is already established by God and the revealed.
The revelation of God comes in three ways: Through a statement of fact; A promise; And a reprimand. "I rebuke and chasten those I love, be zealous therefore, and repent." (Revelation 3:19)
Declaration: The cure is a statement of fact, for the LORD JESUS already took our pain, our infirmities and our sins on Calvary's cross.
Promise: When the Word of God reaches you and opens your understanding and you understand what the Lord wants to make you a blessing. You must pray and seek what God did understand and become reality in your life. This is a commandment of GOD!
Reprimand: A lot of people do not like to be scolded, but reproof is one of the most beautiful things that God makes with their children. When we are away in the ways of the Lord, when we are being contaminated by sin and it seems that there's no way, for His mercy, our God rebukes us. Sometimes mildly, others very hard.
The rebuke of God is something that we must not overlook, for us to walk with our complete, perfect and whole heart before God. "And all thy heart is with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and keep his commandments, as at this day." (I Kings 8:61) With the perfect heart, you will cry for the promise, will take possession of the statement and will bow before the rebuke of God.
Never insurja when God tells you that a practice is wrong. When it comes to his understanding that the word condemns such practices, you should say: "O Lord GOD, forgive me, here this former practitioner of that such a mistake. From now only want to walk with you. "By doing so, you will please God, and when the Lord is pleased with our attitudes, He strengthens us. "I told them, Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those who have nothing prepared him: for this day is holy to our Lord, so be not grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength. "(Nehemiah 8:10)
Beloved, if the Lord has rebuked say to Him: "Lord God thank you, I will walk in his rebuke." Obey the Lord and obey His Word, in so doing, you will find true happiness that both sought. Amen.
