Ephesians 6:18 “With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the SPIRIT, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints…”
HIS “Choice” Vessels!
A soulful petition from one amongst many with countless, in tandem, their prayers — uplifting.
Yet this heart’s expression exceeded most others. In fact, standing separate, it’s zeal stood — alone.
As time passed unhindered the faces surrounding transformed themselves often; some came and some left.
Still this interceding, relentless prayer warrior continued unfazed: even pressing in more!
Though the scenery changed with no other — surrendered; Though none seemed as focused, GOD drew two such vessels…
…uniting them with this bent soul — now outpoured! So sewed HE their strands as one cord — even seamless!
In that instant, as pow’r from on High filled this trio, their Union was shaken — surpassing each core.
Then! As eyes slowly opened and tears fell unhindered, each partner of prayer cried, “I have felt the LORD!”
This “chosen” connection then not by their searching…but rather — through Forfeit of all such routines!
There! The FATHER of Lights bound each strand self- rejecting…and gave them a taste of what Heaven shall be!
As HIServant demanding my own intercessions be equally separate yet equally bound,
Devotional: Matthew 18:19-20
“Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by MY FATHER WHO is in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in MY NAME, I am there in their midst.”
Overview: Praying zealously while GOD watches for those pressing in hard. Then 3 people (with great angst) press in deeper and are collectively bound together…with a heavenly experience as they expectantly waited on HIS touch!
NOTE: This is not about a better or less than scenario. It’s mostly aknee jerk routine… comment when someone asks for prayer and another person says or types, “Will do!” Or “Praying!”
I do it myself so this is pointed to me — most of all.
But this encouraging “indictment” should remind us all of the intent of prayer and the source from which it must be uplifted to JESUS!
The title of this devotion is “HIS “Choice” vessels. To clarify based on what I’ve already shared, this is those who CHOSE to press in deepest.
Those who decided to intercede with all their soul whether they knew the individual in need of prayer closely or at all.
Beloved, THAT’s the choice we must carefully make in haste…till GOD sees another who — in like manner — is being completely outpoured to the glory of GOD.
Therefore, oh Listener! Be emptied without drawing attention to oneself and await that “plugging in” moment when GOD ignites you!
Amen and amen!
