Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
James 4:7

If we don’t spend enough time reading and studying our Bibles, we’ll find ourselves praying ineffective prayers. All we’ll be able to do is wring our hands and say things like “Oh, God, stop the terrorists! Save us! Help us!”

I’m not going to say that such prayers don’t make any difference, but they certainly don’t pack the spiritual power that’s needed in times like these.

If we’ll really dig into the Word, however, we’ll find we have a powerful case to set before the Lord. If we spend time reading and praying over scriptures like Psalms chapter 83 and Matthew 24:14, we can step over into the spirit and begin to be led by Him. Then He’ll quicken those scriptures in our hearts, and we’ll wield them not just with our own natural strength but with divine power and authority.

As the Spirit leads, we can loose the very words and commands of God. We’ll find ourselves saying things like this:

“Devil, I oppose you in the name of Jesus! You’ve come against the people of God—Jews and Christians alike—and I say you are put to shame. I say your forces are confounded and confused. You are like the chaff in the wind. Your attempt to capture the nations and shut out the Gospel will come to nothing because Jesus said this Gospel will be preached to ALL the nations. I stand on those words. I say the words of Jesus will come to pass. I resist your every attempt to terrify and destroy this nation, and the Bible says that if I resist you, you must flee!”

When you move over into the realm of the spirit and start praying prayers like that, you’ll sense the difference. You’ll know you’re getting something done!
