” and I will pray the father, and he shall give you another comforter, but he may abide with you forever; even the spirit of Truth; from the world cannot receive, because it see if him not, neither know with him: but you know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you” — John 14:16-17
In the beginning God said, “Let there be light…” The Holy Spirit moved to bring about what God the Father envisioned and desired. Jesus Christ and God’s Spirit brought it pass.
Similarly, we can see the power of God at work when Jesus was raised from the dead. God’s power was clearly evident as He was raised up.
Think of the Holy Spirit as the One who brings about what the Word says. And what is amazing, is that that self same Spirit lives inside of your Born Again spirit. He is working within every Believer right now.
He is also the One who is teaching you how to pray and helping you in every area of life.
When you pray in the Name of Jesus, the Holy Spirit responds to bring what has been spoken in faith and in alignment to God’s Word to pass. He desires that your faithful prayers are answered.
The Spirit of God is so important that Jesus even told His disciples to wait until they had received Him before they went out to minister. In other words, they need the Holy Spirit to fulfill what Jesus had asked them to do. The very moment you pray in faith based on the Bible, He gets to work!
Align Your Life With His Word
When the Church is praying in faith, the words you use release God’s Spirit to go to work for you. On the other hand, if you speak in unbelief, those faithless words can hurt Him. Yes, the Bible says God’s Spirit can be saddened.
To put it another way, death and life are in the power of your tongue as it says in the Book of Proverbs. This is a clear reminder to watch your mouth. Be careful what words you use. Death can be released and that is imperative that we all take note of that.
When we pray or speak using words that are void of faith, it limits God in our lives. The Holy Spirit is somewhat tied up and unable to move as He would want to.
Therefore be sure to choose life when you pray. Prayer based on God’s Word works miracles in your life. In fact, what comes out of your mouth dictates where your life goes. That is powerful!
Despite what you may be facing, good or bad, your words can maintain or change the atmosphere.
Praying The Word Of God
Prayer that is based upon the Bible works. God’s Word is His will for you and the Church. If you can find several scriptures that align with one another and are relevant to the New Testament, you’re agreeing with the Lord. This releases the Holy Spirit to act within your life.
All Believers have received the measure of faith according to Romans 12:3. It is a gift from God. So when we pray using the Word of God, this makes tremendous power available.
God’s Word is filled with wisdom to win the battles of life. In fact, the Bible says that your faith is like a shield. It’s part of your spiritual armor. So when you face situations in life, speak His Word.
Yes, you can release your faith using your mouth. Your words create a shield against the attacks of the enemy. You can build a wall of protection by speaking and praying in faith based on the Word of God.
