Instead of praying we have been decreeing and declaring, commanding and not demanding. It is obvious the decreeing, declaring and commanding is unreliable – no, I’m being kind – a genuine theatrical flop. I have heard ’em putting an end to Satan’s power!!!
Do you know how many times I have heard a believer – on being asked to pray – pronounce life a veritable paradise, free of challenge, deny the adversity that elicits growth? I dare say too many times. It it is a mind that rejects growth, that preaches victory and success to people who are MORE THAN CONQUERORS that invents this kind of routine. They are time-wasters in my opinion, but God has a more precise definition for that type.
Remember the word that I said to you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.John 15:20
