WATCHING IN PERSEVERANCE 1



“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints

Ephesians 6:18 (KJV)



While looking at praying all prayer and supplication, Paul pauses momentarily to address the attitude every believer should have as we pray.

Remember, Paul was still talking about the items needed to withstand the schemes of the rulers of darkness.

To enforce your victory in Christ, you must not seek for a holiday. Though we entered our rest in Christ, we fight the fight of faith in rest.

There is a designated time for a holiday. We confront the forces of darkness while we are at rest.

The adversary though defeated and rendered powerless, is still deploying and projecting his deceptive scheme. Believers must have the attitude that puts them ahead of the strategies of the evil one.

We must be WATCHFUL and exercise PERSEVERANCE.

You cannot enforce your victory when you go into slumber. You must remain alert with your eyes open. Don’t be ignorant of the schemes of the enemy.

To be watchful enables you to persevere. The more you are alert to see the plots of the enemy the more you remain firm and constant in prayer.

Most believers go on vacation because they are ignorant of the schemes of the devil.

He is a defeated enemy who never accepts defeat (though he knows he cannot win). You must be watchful to put him in his place.

It takes perseverance to do anything or accomplish any great feat in life.

Jesus instructed His disciples to “watch and pray…”

You are a good soldier on the battlefield, therefore, stay alert in prayer.
You don’t also have to get tired to pray. You may have many genuine reasons to be lackadaisical or reasons not to pray, but you must persevere.

This is war!

And you cannot stay out of touch with the Lord. You must earnestly stay in prayer.

To be sincere, prayer isn’t always easy. But the secret is that, the more you stay consistent in prayer, the easier it gets.

When you stay out of prayer for a while, it will always be a struggle to get into the habit of prayer. You must be determined to be prayerful. You have to make a choice that you shall press on in prayer.

You don’t become effective in prayer by only reading on prayer. You can be reading this episode of Machaira with Apostle Bennie, and still not be praying. You may know the benefits of prayer and still not be praying.

The only way to be prayerful is to continue in prayer daily.

And also don’t make prayer the last option of what to do to get results. Prayer must always be your first strategy.

You also don’t have to rush through prayer. To get the best of prayer, stay long in prayer and be consistent with it daily.

PERSEVERE IN PRAYER!

Selah!

DIG DEEPER
(1 Thessalonians 5:17; Acts 1:4; Colossians 4:2,12; Mark 13:33; Luke 18:1; Colossians 1:9; Colossians 2:7)
 
WE PRAY
We pray that we shall not lack the ability and discipline to stay resolute, watchful and devoted in prayer.
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2024
Psalm 105 – 108
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– I have the grace to persevere in prayer in the midst of opposition.
– I refuse to stagger, I pray.
 
– I endure to the end, I pray.
 
– I don’t fret nor faint, I pray.
 
– Through perseverance in prayer, I maintain an undisturbed composure.

Thank you Lord Jesus!!

We'd love to connect with you!

No wonder Jesus told his disciples to pray without ceasing.
We must be watchful to put the adversary in his place or he will take over our place and make us slaves.
I refuse to be enslaved by the adversary.I have the grace to watch and pray consistently.
Oh I take my place in the Kingdom.
In the name of Jesus
