Prayer Changes Things Scripture And Devotions On Prayer.
PRAYER CHANGES THINGS SCRIPTURE AND DEVOTIONS ON PRAYER. 1. When God says He’s going to open the windows of heaven in your life, that doesn’t mean He’s going to do a minor thing, He is going to send a flood of His goodness. He’s going to do something major to where you step back and say, “Wow, I never saw that coming.” All you can say is that it was the goodness of God. 2. It’s one thing when we pray, when we stand against the forces of darkness, that’s good, but when you’re under the open windows of heaven the Creator of the universe says, He will rise up and rebuke the devoured for your sake. 3. We may never understand why bad things happen, but God wouldn’t have allowed it if it wasn’t going to somehow work for your good. Nothing that’s happened to you can keep you from your destiny. The only thing that can stop you is you. 4. Are you ready to give up on what you’re believing for because all you’ve heard is no? Well, it’s time to get ready because yes is coming! No matter who has said no or how many times a door has closed, God has already set a date to bring His promises to pass in your life. But there is one thing God needs from you, and that is your yes. Second Corinthians 1 says, “God’s yes and our yes together make a sure thing.” 5. If you’re going to stay encouraged, if you’re going to enjoy your life, you can't allow the negative to get into your spirit. You only have so much emotional energy each day—use it on things that matter. 6. We all face situations that look like they’ll never work out. Every voice says it’s not going to happen. But just because you don’t see anything happening doesn’t mean God is not working. Behind the scenes, He’s arranging things in your favor. If you’ll stay in faith, at the right time, it will all come together. 7. What God has in store for you is going to boggle your mind. The places He’s going to take you, the people you’re going to influence, the dreams you’re going to accomplish…they’re going to be bigger than you’ve ever imagined! Learn to stand on God’s promises. 8. If you will make somebody else’s day, God will always make your day. If you’ll bring a smile to someone else’s face, God will bring a smile to your face. The most rewarding way to live is not asking, “What can you do for me?” but asking,“What can I do for you?” 9. As long as you have breath, your story is still being written. You may be in a difficult scene right now, something you don’t understand, a setback, but you have to remind yourself, that’s not how your story ends. You have an expected end. The Creator of the universe, the Most High God has already planned it for good and not harm. 10.You haven’t laughed your best laugh. You haven’t dreamed your best dream. You haven’t danced your best dance. You haven’t sung your best song. Your time is around in the name of Jesus. Amen @JoelOsteen
