Many years ago, my spiritual father was preaching in the city of Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State, Nigeria. I was in the congregation. There was no way he would know I was there. It was a church with a heavy protocol system.

I succeeded in catching his attention before he left the auditorium. He was surprised to see me. He held me by the hand and every door that opened for him opened for me also. No one could stop me.

A believer who refuses to connect to all of Heaven’s power resources by praying will be the one that will be stranded on earth.

In teaching us what is now called the Lord’s prayer, Jesus made it clear that there is a will of heaven that can be enforced on earth by men who are willing to pray.

For instance, there had been no access to the king for 30 days and you cannot go to the king without an invitation. If you do, you will be killed. Esther had to take a risk. But she first summoned the nation of Israel to prayers:

“All the king’s advisers and the people in the king’s provinces know that no one approaches the king in the throne room without being summoned. By law, that person must be put to death. Only if the king holds out the golden sceptre to him will he live. I, myself, have not been summoned to enter the king’s presence for 30 days now.” “Assemble all the Jews in Susa. Fast for me: Do not eat or drink at all for three entire days. My servants and I will also fast. After that, I will go to the king, even if it is against a royal decree. If I die, I die.”
Esther 4:11‭, ‬16 GW

Esther approached the king by faith. What raised the King’s sceptre? Do you think it was the beauty of Esther? I doubt it! That beauty did not work for thirty days. It was the force of prayer backing up that decision.

There will be doors that will remain shut if we do not know how to connect to our source.

The Apostle John made us know that greater is he that is in us than he that is in the world.

Smith Wigglesworth said, ‘I am a thousand times bigger on the inside than I am on the outside’.

When everything around you seems to make you feel small, stay calm. It is making a demand on what is within you. Press in to prayer. Connect with heaven’s unlimited resource. There are angels on standby. There is the anointing. There is the grace of the Lord. You cannot be stranded.

There is love in sharing
