Today’s Devotional – January 4th

.

.

.

.

The Endless Phone Call!

.

.

.

. 

.

Have you noticed that the daily prayer section of these daily devotionals, quihttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SignaturPrincess.jpgte often end with “…”.

.

Yes, the prayer each day quite often simply ends with three dots, signifying that they continue on.

.

The reason for this is because the Bible says… “Pray Without Ceasing” 1st Thessalonians 5:17.

.

And so, as we go about our day, we must be, “continuing instant in prayer;” Romans 12:12.

.

In other words, our prayer never really ends!

THE ENDLESS PHONE CALL

.

One person put the prayer-life of a Christian in a very interesting context.

.

He said that prayer is like two teenagers who spend hours on the phone each day, to the point that there is silence for a while until somebody says something. And then they talk for a while longer. And then they are silent again for a while.

.

And this analogy of two teenagers talking on the phone for hours makes a lot of sense! After all, we love our Lord. And there is no greater privilege and pleasure than to talk with Him throughout our day. And so it is like we never hang up! We might even set the phone down, and then come back to it to talk some more!

.

Another person said it like this: “Pray till you’re not even aware that you’re praying!” Have you ever done this?

.

Have you prayed so much, while you go about your daily duties, to the point that you, at times, are not even conscious that you’re praying?

OUR COMMUNION MAY GROW SUPERNATURALLY

.

Now it is impossible to say just how our prayer-life will change as our relationship will grow in the coming times, just ahead.

As the Church rises higher and higher in these last moments on earth, our prayer-life may climb to supernatural heights, beyond what we now understand! And so, to “pray without ceasing” may be fulfilled in ways we just cannot comprehend at this present hour.

.

But for now, this analogy about two teenagers having a seemingly endless phone call makes a whole lot of sense!

OUR PRAYERS NOT AS TWO TEENS TALKING!

.

Needless to say, the content of our prayers is where this comparison ends!

.

That is, the things we say in prayer, are vastly different than this analogy of two teens talking!

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Starry_Night_at_La_Silla.jpg

No, our prayers are composed of pleadings for spiritual strength and help! And prayers of praise and thanksgiving! And prayers for help for our family, friends, and for the Church of God!

.

And so, the prayers of a Christian go far beyond the mundane conversations between humans!

.

Listen… “Be careful (worried) for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Philippians 4:6

.

And like this photo, when the Christian gets lost in prayer, crying out to the Lord, he or she might eventually feel closed-in with God, even as having entered into God’s very Throne Room in the Heavenlies!

.

Listen… “…the King hath brought me into His chambers: we will be glad and rejoice in Thee,” Song of Songs 1:4

THE HOLY-GHOST-RIDER CONSTELLATION

 

.

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;” Rev. 2:7, 11, 17, 29, 3:6, 13, 22

.

As you can easily see, this horse has some very big ears. Of course, this presents a very big concept. And since this Rider represents the Holy Spirit, it is obvious that He is leaning close, as if to whisper His words in the horse’s ears.

.

And so what is He (The Spirit) whispering in this horses ears? Well, primarily the messages to the 7 churches, found in Revelation Ch.’s, 2 & 3.

.

But not everyone has ears to hear. Listen to Ezekiel… “Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.” Ezek. 12:2. Yes, the rebellion amongst God’s professing people was great, and they had all but closed their ears from hearing truth.

.

Well it’s the very same problem in the New Testament. Listen to Jesus… “If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.” Mark 7:16.

.

So this Rider whispering into this Horse’s ears is a heavenly picture of this concept… “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;” Rev. 2:7, 11, 17, 29, 3:6, 13, 22.

Holy-Ghost-Rider Constellation.

Now the great lesson to be learned, is that there are certain truths, which those who are rebellious in God’s house, will not be able to hear. And these messages to the 7 churches are those very types of messages, that many “Christians” just do not like to hear.

.

And so, what is the bottom line. Well, it would be a very good idea, for each and every one of us to humble ourselves before God, and plead with Him to give us spiritual ears to hear these deeper truths which God is trying to tell us.
