Building a House of Prayer pt4

 Isaiah 56:7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. (KJV)

The Provision of Prayer
Supernaturally ­ Matthew 21:22
Unlimited ­ John 15:15-­17
Promised ­ Matthew 18:18-­20
Potential ­ John 1:11-­13
Lovingly ­ John 3:16­-20
Yours ­ Romans 8:28­-30

            As we pray God faithfully makes provision for us. This series on prayer would not be complete if we neglected to build a covering over our house of prayer. Purpose was our foundation in REST. We gave the house of prayer walls in the process to STAND. We cut in doors and windows to MOVE with passion in our prayers.

            Our Father in Heaven has promised us a Supernaturally Unlimited supply to meet the needs of our lives and ministry.  Simply “love one another” and ask God for whatever is needed (Matthew 21:22 & John 15:15-17). In my early years of ministry, I worked with Pastor James Ward. This man had great faith and took God at His Word. The church was extremely small but in spite of that fact, we had WHATEVER was needed through prayer. Time after time God supplied. His promises are TRUE.

Philippians 4:19-20 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 20 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen. (KJV)

            God has made promises concerning you. They go beyond material possessions. Your life has potential. It is lovingly offered by God Himself. And the best part is it is exclusively yours. Jesus will reveal God’s plan for your life to you. He will tell us God’s plan. He has called us friends – Not slaves. If we will seek God’s will and not dogmatically hold on to our own understanding, God will work miracles among us. That is our potential!

            Everything God does is done in love. He offered us salvation in love. He provides for us in love. Love is yours through Christ and His love will change the world through you and me.

Romans 8:28­-30 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. (KJV)

            The roof on the house of prayer is God’s provision for us through His supernatural SUPPLY. It covers everything we need and more than we can ask or even think. Nothing can limit God’s ability to reach us, so this roof does not block God’s accessibility – It shields our inability – It protects the Supernaturally Unlimited Promised Potential Lovingly Yours!
