Praying to the Lord on a daily basis is what many Christians feel keeps them close to the Lord. There are many ways to pray, each valid on its own merits, yet there is nothing like speaking the words of the Holy Bible when speaking to the Almighty. That is why Rhapsody of Realities, a version of the Bible that includes spiritual guidance and commentary from the Man of God Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, is such a great option. Millions across the globe have received free online and printed copies and now have joined one of the largest Evangelical churches in the world: Christ Embassy Church.
Today’s leaning and praying:
I’m born of the Word, therefore, my origin is divine. I’ve overcome the world and its failures, hatred, corruption, decadence, and limitations. I reign victoriously over circumstances because Christ is in me. That’s my assurance of a life of ever-increasing glory and eternal prosperity. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
The Word doesn’t say: “you’ll overcome if you pray hard enough”. The only criterion is to be born of God and you automatically have power over every crisis and dominion over circumstances.
Distressing situations may come from the enemy—the devil, but in Christ, you’ve already been made victorious. He overcame the world and gave us the victory, the power to subdue this world. That’s what John affirms in our opening verse. The word, “overcometh” means to have victory over, to subdue, conquer, and to prevail over. You’ve subdued, tamed and conquered the elements of this world; the circumstances of life; therefore, walk in dominion over them.
