PRAYER AS AN IDOL
One thing we believers ignore is that, the devil doesn’t use the same strategy to lure us, it takes true aligning with the HOLY SPIRIT to maintain our victory over the devil.
For every promise that was declared to us in the WORD, a counterfeit is created by the devil…. It takes the mind of GOD to think like CHRIST and discern the right thing…
Some of us as children, had our hearts corrupted innocently by some of our churches at home….
A wrong doctrine about prayer was in-corporated into us unknowingly, because of the results we thought prayer in itself could bring…
We were even taught to sing this popular song
Prayer is the key…. Prayer is the key…. Prayer is the master key… JESUS started with Prayer… and ended with Prayer….Prayer is the ‘MASTER KEY’
JESUS CHRIST IS THE MASTER KEY, THE WORD OF GOD, THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND LIFE
This ideology made us think prayer could solve all, so some of us followed the footsteps of our parents and began to sow more into the system of prayer rather, than STUDY OF THE WORD….
We focused less on LOVING PEOPLE, yet we prayed more and more, we neglected the fact that our lives should be like that of CHRIST, yet we prayed more.
We believed a prayerful Christian gains all and can’t ever lose.
This ideology was wrong, unfortunately, we have Churches that were built on the false doctrine of Prayer, so they have prayer vigils on almost every Friday and on most days of the week, yet they never get RESULTS, you never see changes and improvement in their lives….
Beloved, when you start praying more than you study the WORD, you are making PRAYER and idol….
When you pray so much, but, you don’t take conscious efforts to practice being like CHRIST, and building your MIND in HIM, you make Prayer an idol.
PRAYER ISN’T THE FOUNDATION OF CHRISTIANITY, CHRIST IS….
So, Strike a BALANCE!
TAKE QUALITY TIME TO STUDY WITH THE WORD, AND THEN PRAY, AND MAKE EXTREME EFFORTS TO PRACTICE IT, THAT’S WHAT MAKES YOU BE LIKE CHRIST.
STOP ASKING FOR GRACE TO GIVE, AND START GIVING FROM THE LITTLE YOU HAVE…
STOP ASKING FOR STRENGTH TO PREACH THE GOSPEL, AND GO OUT UN-ASHAMEDLY TO DECLARE IT…
STOP ASKING FOR POWER, AND DESIRE UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORD….
- DECLARE THESE WORDS
I am made to shine…
I am made to flourish…
I am manifesting the WORD
My life is achieving a BALANCE
I have the mind of CHRIST
Therefore, I am THINKING RIGHT
My day is blessed
And the GLORY OF GOD COVERS ME ALL MY LIFE
