I have been reflecting on prayer this week and have been reminded that when we speak and pray the scriptures we are coming into agreement with God. Through this aligning and agreeing His power is released to answer our prayers.
Praying the scriptures will increase your spiritual growth. You actually learn what God says about certain situations. Prayer puts the situation from being in my control and in my hands into His. It releases the situation to Him. Some days I need to release my infertility and future to God more than once a day. It is so easy to become focused on the obstacles, to the point that its blinding and hard to see anything else. But I find that talking it all through with God changes my perspective and releases it back to Him. Again.
I believe that Gods word has authority and when we speak it out over situations, circumstances and obstacles, victory has to come. Knowing this renews my hope, increases my faith and causes me to once again be in awe of my big, powerful, victorious and gracious God. This is a God who gives us practical keys to unlock His power in our everyday lives.
Some of the scriptures I have found/been given to pray over my infertility are:
He settles the childless woman in her home as a happy mother of children.
Praise the Lord.
Worship the Lord your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you, and none will miscarry or be barren in your land. I will give you a full life span.
God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over it.”
For no word from God will ever fail.
Yes and Amen!
