Morning Prayer Summary for Friday, May 18, 2018

Pastor Ray shared…

I’m going to read from a book by Andrew Wommack entitled, “Don’t Limit God.” I like something he said. I reminded me of something a day or two ago. He was talking about what we imagine, based on Proverbs 23:7, as a man thinks in his heart. I’ll just read a couple pages.

Don’t Limit God

We have to change the way think. We need to study the Word and imagine the truths God has given us, until they paint a picture on the inside of us—until we see ourselves healthy, righteous, and full of peace and joy. We can never see anything happen on the outside unless we see it happen on the inside first.

Many of you are praying for big things to happen—restoration of your marriage, healing in your body, or prosperity in your finances. You are praying for these things, but you can’t see them—and it’s frustrating. But if you’ll just meditate on the Word and allow it to paint a picture on the inside of you, it will come to pass. As a man thinks in his heart, so is he (Pro. 23:7).

Paul said, “We walk by faith, not by sight (2 Cor. 5:7). As a Christian, your imagination should paint such a real picture that you live by what the Word says more than you live by what you can see with your physical eyes. You can do that. You have God almighty living on the inside of you.

Are you picturing what God’s Word says about you? Can you see yourself healed? Can you see yourself prosperous? Can you see yourself doing the miracles Jesus did? If not, you need to meditate on the Word of God until you can see yourself doing these things. You need to change the way you see yourself. You need to see yourself as God sees you. You need to take the limits off and engage your imagination in order to see God’s will for your life come to pass.

Seeing on the Inside

Before I saw anything happen on the outside, I had to see them happen on the inside. Jesus said, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father” (John 14:12). I began the process of seeing things on the inside by meditating on every scripture where Jesus healed somebody or raised somebody from the dead. Then I closed my Bible, shut my eyes, and saw myself raising Lazarus from the dead. I saw myself raising Jairus’ daughter from the dead. Everything Jesus did, I saw myself do. I pictured what it would look like when Jesus said, “Take ye away the stone” (John 11:39). I was engaging my imagination.

I began believing it was possible to see people raised from the dead after reading what Jesus said in the Gospel of John. This inspired me to believe that God would do miracles through me. I thought about all of the miracles Jesus performed and said, “Father, can I raise someone from the dead?” I meditated on this so much that I raised a dozen people from the dead every night in my dreams. I had dreams about going into morgues and emptying them out. After about six months, I actually saw a person raised from the dead with my physical eyes, but then ten or fifteen years went by before I saw this happen again. One day, I again felt inspired by God to start imagining people being raised from the dead, and pretty soon, I was dreaming about it again.

Then, one night I got a phone call that my own son had died. He had been dead for four-and-a-half hours when I received the call. I just started thanking God for His goodness and magnifying Him above the circumstances. By the time I arrived at the hospital, my son had come back to life—but it wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t been meditating on and imagining God’s “raising-from-the-dead” power!

Before you can see something happen on the outside, you have to see it on the inside. It has to become so real to you that you see yourself doing it. You won’t see the miracle power of God if you are defeated, discouraged, or depressed in your imagination. Stop limiting God with your imagination. Resurrect your imagination, and start using it in a positive way.

Pastor Ray continued…

In the days that we’re living, it would be easy to imagine things not going right if we pay attention to all the negativity that is around us that is being spoken every single day. 14/7 negativity. That’s why we have to stick with the Word, right? Pastor Mac spends time every day imagining what he would do with a billion dollars, or whatever. He imagines seeing how he would use it for the ministry. Each one of use need to work on imaging the prayers we pray in the chapel really truly have an effect worldwide. If we’re lined up with the Word, we can see it in our hearts. Our faith goes along with that. I never feel like it’s a waste of time. Brother Hagin used to say, as long as I’m praying in the spirit, I know that when I’m finished praying, God’s will would be accomplished.

Do we see the stadium filled? Let’s close our eyes and imagine the stadium filled and the overflow filled. Let’s see souls coming to the Lord. Out of 66 thousand seats, there’s got to be a lot of people that will get in that do not know the Lord. We declare it shall come to pass. What needs to be done spiritually speaking, it shall be done.
