2 Timothy 1:7 (ESV)
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
Do you need strength to walk through God’s open door for your life? Here are some powerful prayer approaches to take when opposition arises!
First, in prayer, rely on God for your future. This will increase your faith in God and circumvent the words and attitudes of opposition that come your way.
Second, in prayer, accept God’s word by faith, and walk in His direction with confidence and courage. There is nothing like the Word of God to overcome all doubt and opposition.
Third, in prayer, do not be intimidated with fear when inundated with difficulties. He will bring you through every opposition by His wisdom and power.
Finally, in prayer, allow the Holy Spirit’s voice to be heard over the voice of failure. In God’s economy setbacks are springboards and stepping-stones to take you to the other side of the storm. The devil uses failure to condemn, but when you hear God speaking to your heart, you will overcome the devil’s opposition.
Keep it simple. Pray, believe, and obey. How much theology do you need to give half your sandwich to a hungry man? How much Hebrew do you need to be able to read the Word of God? Yet to bestow grace and mercy to a brother or sister in need is to obey the supernatural order of God. There is nothing mysterious about the supernatural; it simply allows people to do things they would not be able to do in their own strength. This is an invitation to the supernatural life that only God can provide.
Dear Lord, thank You for the strength that You give to us. Help us to go our and do the things You want us to do. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
