Often our prayers appear to only hit the ceiling and we wonder why the Lord does not answer. Jesus taught the most powerful prayer ever prayed and He directed it to the Kingdom lifestyle. The problem that many Christians fail to realise is that unless we totally surrender to the Lordship of Jesus, we cannot expect to walk in the victory He has promised every child of God.
In the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus promised us four things that encompass all our needs. We could have our daily needs met. Forgiveness was not an option, but a commandment of the Father. The Holy Spirit would lead us away from all temptation and we could experience deliverance from evil and the evil one.
The problem is that we cannot live with one foot in the Kingdom of God and the other in the world. In John 10:25, trusting and relying on the Lord are the two power-filled words that grant us entrance into the realm of the Kingdom and victory over all of life’s problems.
John 10:28-30 reads, “And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.”
Strive to activate the Kingdom lifestyle in every word and action and you will have success to overcome in this life. It is a God guarantee.
