ODAAT – When in doubt pray

1 Thessalonians 5:17

Pray without ceasing.

Who on this earth has ever conquered death? Who on earth has ever overcome the grave? Who on earth has ever been able to withstand the evil one? Who on earth has ever been able to hold the gift of eternal life in their hands and to offer it to all who would want it?

Well, to all of these questions, we can say that there is no one on this earth who has been able to do any of these things except Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour – the perfect man in the eyes of God, without sin, and who gave His life for all of mankind. But not only did He lay His life down, but He took it up again and rose from the grave and is now seated at the right hand of the Father.

But this is not the end of the story. Rather, how amazing is it that if we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, the very spirit of Christ comes to abide in us and us in Him. We too are now risen with Christ and, in and through Him, are seated in heavenly places, right at the throne of Grace and Mercy.

So if God has graciously allowed us to be seated at the Father’s right hand in and through Jesus, if we have been made kings and priests through our saviour, let us then be more than conquerors in this life we have been ordained to live on this earth: a life which can bring forth much fruit to the glory of God; A life which now reflects that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us and who has won the victory on our behalf. 

Today, don’t cower or crumble under your circumstance trial or tribulation. Simply set your heart and mind on those things which are above and know this one thing; that which is not possible with man, is possible with God. Pray without ceasing, for the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: (1 Peter 3:12 )

Additional scriptures for reading:

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
