”Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
We need to live our lives in such a way that we become less independent on our own solutions and become more dependent upon God for solutions through prayer.
Truth be known, we back away from dependence on God, we are not living by faith. We are not depending on Him but on our own strength.
We need to be willing to attempt things big enough that unless God steps in, we are sure to fail.
Faith is like jumping out of an airplane at fifteen thousand feet or walking on a tightrope between two mountains. If God doesn’t catch you or guide your every move, you will fall and crash.
But how do you know unless you jump or walk on that tightrope? This is the kind of faith and dependence He is looking for in our lives. This is the kind of faith and dependence that can only be found in our commitment to pray, asking God for His plan, giving us His eyes, taking freely His wisdom and discernment that the power of God could be unleashed from our own independent hearts and reckoning that unless we live and walk and interact with our families, our friends, our co-workers in a way of dependency on God we will never see the fullness of God’s power to help our families and help our friends, set free those that are being held in bondage, to give sight to the blind, to heal the lame, to soften hardened hearts, to bring home the prodigals.
We need to deactivate our faith in our own abilities and commit our faith to God and ask Him to fill us with the Holy Spirit afresh, to teach us to know His ways, that through obedience to God, He can move in and around our lives with His power to move the mountains that deactivate our faith and keep us from coming to God in prayer.
Seek God in prayer to help you open doors in the form a prayer group, and commit yourself to let faith and prayer be alive in your life.
