MOVING GOD’S SOVEREIGN HAND

“Your humble words and heartfelt persistent prayers can move the hand of Creator. Therefore, get praying!”

James 5:16(b)
The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]. (AMP BIBLE)

I’ve often heard it asked, why doesn’t God prevent devastations like the Covid-19 pandemic or earthquakes or even wars? Why doesn’t he intervene in the ways of man? Well, the truth is, he does, or more specifically, he has intervened. God has given his Church the authority and great privilege of prayer.

Prayer is a mystery to me. I will never know how my simple seemingly insignificant words in private can move the hand of the Creator, yet they can. James writes (as seen in the Amplified Bible) that the payers of a righteous person are dynamic and can have tremendous power. “Ah, but I’m not righteous,” I hear you say. Indeed you in yourself and I in myself are not righteous. In fact, Isaiah says our attempts at righteousness are like filthy rags in God’s sight. True. However, listen to what the Bible says God did through the work of Jesus at Calvary: God made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. Get that? It is not your righteousness that qualifies your prayers, it is God’s own righteousness in you, through Christ, that causes your prayers to become dynamic and have tremendous power to accomplish much!

So, I say, as you abide in Jesus and have his words abide in you, ask the Father for anything in Christ’s name and he will do it for you. In Christ, you are the righteous man whose prayers accomplish much. Your humble words and heartfelt persistent prayers can move the hand of Creator. Therefore, get praying! With this authority and privilege, you can stand against devastations like the Covid-19 pandemic or earthquakes or even wars. Come on, child God, let’s pray without ceasing.

God-tracking is moving God’s sovereign hand to intervene, through prayer.

SO, DON’T GIVE UP, LOOK UP & PRAY
“O sovereign God, I praise you for the work of Jesus at Calvary. Thank you, O Lord Jesus, that you took my sin on the cross that I could be made righteous by God’s righteousness. Therefore, In Christ and by your righteousness, I pray for the end of the Covid-19 pandemic. In Christ and by your righteousness, I pray that you will intervene in the affairs of man and bring hope, peace and faith to the world. I pray that millions will be drawn to Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. And I pray that you will demonstrate your power to save, deliver and heal, not least of all, those who are in need within my own family. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen!”
