|Memorise: “For the LORD of hosts hath purposed and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?” (Is 14:27)
Read: Deuteronomy 32:37-41
|When a need is presented to the wrong person, it is misplaced. It may never be met. One reason some Christians have not obtained their requests from their husbands, parents, relatives or friends, is because they asked a man instead of God. You may need to repent and return to God with the request or it may never be met.Another lesson from 2 Kings 5:3-7 is that the devil may delay a blessing but may not be able to prevent it. When Satan observed that the ‘but’ in Naaman’s life was about to disappear, he moved to confuse the king so that there could be a misplaced request. If God had not intervened, instead of healing, there would have been another war between Israel and Syria. Today, harmless requests cause war in homes and relationships. Satan specializes in diverting requests.
In Daniel 10:12-14, immediately Daniel prayed, the answer was released. But Satan decided to double cross the angel, which led to a delay of 21 days. God had to send another angel before the answer could reach Daniel. All your delayed prayers shall be released to you this season in Jesus’ Name.
Seeking help from well placed individuals, friends and relatives may appear good but they are misplaced requests. If you go to commercial prophets for special prayers, you are only delaying your miracles. Give your life to Jesus and have direct access to Him. Kings, presidents and governors may be powerful, but they are limited. They, like the Isreali king, cannot heal the sick. He was shocked when he received the letter from his Syrian counterpart. Our God is the only One who cannot be limited. He can kill and give life (Deut 32:39).
Four boys once argued over whose father was the greatest. One said his father was, being the president. The second said since his father was the president’s doctor, he could restrict the movement of the president. The third boy boasted that his father was greater than the father of the other two because he was their juju priest. The fourth boy argued that his father was the greatest because He could kill and make alive.
The other three laughed at him thinking he was referring to his earthly father. But he said he was referring to Jesus Christ. He is the King that can grant all requests. Who is your father?
