Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“The Ultimate Goal of Every Prayer”
Text: 2 Kings 19:19
“Now therefore, O LORD our God, I pray, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You are the LORD God, You alone.”
The reminder of The Ultimate Goal of Every Prayer,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. What is this Ultimate Goal? “That All the Kingdoms of the Earth, may know that You are the LORD God, You Alone!
Yes, king Hezekiah asked God to save Israel from the hand of Sennacherib - but the greater goal, the Ultimate Goal of Hezekiah’s Prayer was “that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that God IS The LORD God, and God Alone! Oooh Rah!
As a new believer our Ultimate Goal in prayer was Salvation - we just wanted to get saved and know Jesus as our Lord and Savior. However as we grow up in Him, our Ultimate Goal in Prayer changes from our immediate need to God’s Demonstration of His Glory and Power. Our need is the Platform for God to clearly show everyone, “all the kingdoms of the earth,” that He Is The LORD God, and Him Alone!
The seasoned Warrior prays:
not just for their financial need to be satisfied -
but that God will demonstrate “for everyone to see and know,” that He Alone is Yahweh Jireh “God Who Provides,” for me.
Not just for healing my body -
but that God will demonstrate”for everyone to see and know,” that He Alone is Yahweh Rapha “God Who heals me of all my diseases.”
Not just for peace in the midst of turmoil and chaos -
But that God will demonstrate that He Alone is Yahweh Shalom “God of Peace,” Who gives me peace that is beyond all understanding (Phil.4:7).
Not just for any spiritual, financial, physical, or emotional need -
but that God will demonstrate that He Alone is El Shaddai “all Sufficient One,” “Who meets all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”(Phil.4:19).
In other words, All our needs are met when our Ultimate Goal is that Everyone would see and know that Our God and Commander IS The LORD God, and Him Alone!
Seek this First in your Prayer, and whatever else you need will be met with “more than enough.” Like Jesus said in His Sermon on the Mount:
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”(Mat.6:33).
