Good Morning Warrior!
It’s The Lord’s Day, Hallelujah!
Word for the Day:
(2 Kings 19)
“Because You Prayed I Have Heard You.”
Text: 2 Kings 19:20
“Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, “Thus says the LORD God of Israel: Because you have prayed to Me against Sennacherib king of Assyria, I have heard.’”
Aaah this comforting words: “Because You Prayed I Have Heard You,” are on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
King Hezekiah, faced with imminent invasion by Assyria, goes into the House of God and spreads out his situation to God in Prayer - and God Heard His Prayer!
Oh Wow! What a thrilling encouragement this must have been for Hezekiah! And the words that follow this are even more thrilling; God will dissolve Sennacherib’s threat, kill 185,000 soldiers overnight with one battle angel, and lead Sennacherib back to where he came from - to be murdered by his own sons.
All this happened “Because Hezekiah Prayed To God!”
Listen up Warrior! When You Pray God Hears and God Acts On Your Behalf, Right Away!
Jeremiah himself records this Truth:
“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’”(Jer.33:3).
Aaaah yes, God sure did show Hezekiah some “great and mighty things that he did not know!”
Even Before You Call He Will Answer, and while you are speaking He is listening:
“It shall come to pass
That before they call, I will answer;
And while they are still speaking, I will hear.”(Isa.65:24).
Yes, we can pray confidently knowing that as we pray our Commander is Listening and sending you and I help from the Sanctuary:
“May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble;
May the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
May He send you help from the sanctuary,
And strengthen you out of Zion;
May He remember all your offerings,
And accept your burnt sacrifice.
May He grant you according to your heart’s desire,
And fulfill all your purpose.” (Psa.20:1-4).
We can pray confidently knowing that God is listening to our prayer for a lost soul, and He is sending us “help from the sanctuary,” to rescue this soul.
Don’t be discouraged by “knocking” prayer that requires weeks, months, and sometimes years to see the results.
Daniel’s Prayer was heard immediately on the first day, yet his battle angel had to fight the Prince of Persia for 21 days to get to Daniel with the answer. (Dan.10:12).
Pray Without Ceasing Warrior, because God is listening and working in ways you cannot see.
“Even when it seems He’s not working -
HE’s STILL WORKING!!
HE NEVER STOPS WORKING -
When we Never Stop Praying!
Listen up Warrior! Souls are waiting to be saved. Job said it this way:
“Oh, that one might plead for a man with God,
As a man pleads for his neighbor!” (Job 16:21).
Hear the Voice of Your Commander this Morning:
“Because You Have Prayed To Me I Have Heard You!”
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
