Wow… Time flies! Week after week goes by, and I am still amazed at the power, presence, and promises of God active in my life. Yesterday at church we had close to record setting attendance. More importantly than that we talked about Steps to Answered prayer. It is humbling to see people surrendering their lives, and situations to the Lord on Sunday mornings. We were in Isaiah 38:1-8. One of the things we talked about was the beauty of shedding tears and believing that God is going to move on our behalf. If God can extend Hezekiah’s life 15 years, and raise Jesus from the grave, I am confident that God can and will move on our behalf as well. My prayer is that we all are encouraged by 1 Peter 5:6-7 where it says:
“6Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”
As you read this, my hope is that you will sense the presence of God where ever you are and whatever you are in. The King of kings, Lord of lords, Prince of peace Jesus Christ is awaiting our prayer request.
Practical Steps for Answered Prayer this week:
1) Get in Position- Find a place, corner, or someplace where you can communicate with God
2) Pray- make a list of things you want to lay at the Master’s feet. Things you want to release, and be released from. Take this time write down people’s names whom you are praying for.
3) Believe- Believe that God is able and willing to move on your behalf.
DUCC is moving STEP by STEP to a new realm in Christ Jesus, but I have a secret for you: You are moving too!
Living in Answered Prayer,
Pastor Chris Johnson
