What I do when I’m in need

And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?

Luke 12:25

Whenever I find myself in serious need, or facing intense spiritual attack, instead of just engaging the enemy and rebuking, binding etc (which I do), I will purposefully pray for others for an extended period of time.

Why?

Very often intense attacks from the enemy are intended to not just hurt us, but to reduce our usefulness to the kingdom. When this happens, most of us unintentionally become so absorbed in our own problems that we become to some extent selfish or self-absorbed, even though our motive is often just trying to survive the attack.

However, even in that, we are deceived into abandoning our trust in God. Thus, I have found over the years that sometimes the best warfare is to forget my own problems and needs for a while and SERVE.

Do YOU have an urgent need today? Pick someone you know or know of. Pray for them. Fast for them. Encourage them. Be about your Father’s business, and trust Him to move on your behalf.

He will surely keep His promises.
