Morning Prayer Summary for Friday, September 6, 2019

Rob led group in worship…

All eyes are on Him. Thank You, Lord. You’re so good.

♪ Thank You for the blood… thank You for the blood… thank You for the blood, Jesus Christ… ♪

Pastor Ray shared…

Rob, would you sing about the blood a little longer? There is a resting in knowing there is victory in the blood. It’s not something we can force or that we can make happen. But there is victory, power, healing, prosperity of every kind in the blood of Jesus. It made me turn more toward Him and the Spirit brings comfort. He is the comforter.

Before you start singing, I wanted to share this. Wednesday in the prayer meeting, Dave shared some things that he saw years ago.  I’m going to have him share about it a little bit. It’s about how everything is going to be all right. This morning I went in the bathroom to get a Kleenex and looked in the mirror and I heard, “Everything is going to be all right.” So when we sat here and Rob was talking to us about the presence of God and resting in Him, I heard in my spirit, “The reason I told you ‘everything is going to be all right’ is because EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT.” It’s seems like a small deal, but really it’s a big deal.

Right after that, I had a phone call about something that needed to be all right. I was able to minister that to the person calling.  The Holy Spirit knows what to do, when to do it, who to do it. And for us, who to give it to. So let’s magnify His blood a little more, then maybe, Dave, if you would share your testimony. It gave a great picture for our future that everything is going to be all right.

Thank You for the blood… for the power that is in the blood for the hour that we live … every care has to go… every touch of fear has to go… through the blood, we know it will be all right…

Dave shared…

Several years ago, I was in school at Rhema. At the end of my first year, I was trying to determine what I should do? Should I stay in Tulsa, wait for the next year or go home and work. What do I need to do? One night while praying, the Lord spoke to me. I was just worshiping the Lord. I prayed, “Lord, I need to know what is going to happen because I need to make decisions… to do this or that.” I had a sense of urgency because next week I have to go or I have to stay or get a job. As I worshiped the Lord, He gave me a vision. It was a spiritual vision, but it happened instantaneously. He took me back in my life to when I was sitting on a park bench at the age of seven. I saw myself sitting on that bench doing the same exact thing. At seven years old, I was asking the Lord “What am I going to do? What will I be? What’s my life going to be?” I’m contemplating that. I remember it clearly. He started taking me through my life, all the events and all the things that I had up to that point in my life. It happened as quick as I could snap my fingers. But in my spirit, I knew it as if it happened over again. It’s like I lived it all over again. Each event. And I was cognizant of every event. Then the Lord said, “I had you here. I had you here. I had you here. I heard you here. I heard you here.” Every one of those events that He showed me, He assured me that He heard me and that He had me. Then after He said that to me, He said, “And I’ll have you in the future.” The scripture that came to me for that was in Phil. 1:6, “I thank my God every time I remember you in my prayers and for all of you I always pray for you with joy because your partnership in the Gospel from the first day until now. Being confident of this that He who has begun a good work in your will carry it out to completion until the day of Christ.”  In the Living translation, it says “I am certain that God who began a good work with you will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” In other words, He’s got you covered for as long as you’re here.

That is the thing that He left me that night with, is that He didn’t say, “You’re going to do this, you’re going to do this. Go buy a plane ticket and go here and this will happen.” He didn’t say any of that. All He said, “Everything is going to be okay.” That’s all He said. And it’s strategic in His comment because you have to think about faith. The Bible says without faith you can’t please God. Yet, scripturally, He gave me that word. Hindsight is 20/20 and I can look back and say, “Yeah, I get why you told me that.” But in that moment,  I had peace within me that everything was going to be okay. And I wasn’t going to goof it up. He didn’t say “Don’t do this. Oh by the way, I’ll help you but don’t do this.” That’s important for somebody here because sometimes you think that you’re going to screw it up. That’s the thing you’re most worried about because you want to serve the Lord and do the right thing.

What I’m trying to get over to you is this. Having that desire is the most important thing in your life because all you have to do is have that desire and grace fills in the rest. You don’t need to know everything. You hear people say, “Be careful what you pray for, you may get it.” Well, there is some truth in that. You don’t know how to pray as you ought. We don’t know everything and we’re trying to figure it out. “Just tell me what to do and I’ll do it.” We’re like that. We’re limited in our understanding. But He’s not limited.

Here’s the second point to that. I didn’t talk to Pastor Ray and he didn’t tell me to “share this.” I was sitting here and heard it the first time he said it. Last night, I was working on the house and the Lord did this to me again. I was listening to brother Hagin and my spirit did the same thing. It went back to a couple events that had happened to me in the past. Again, instantaneously. And peace came over me. And the same thing happened last night. The point in bringing that up is this. You don’t need to be frustrated with the world you live in. Because everything will be okay. And because of your heart’s desire to serve the Lord and to do His will, He’s going to make it so that you know.

Brother Hagin said something once that blessed me. It helped me for the rest of my life because I use it as something as a guide tool for me. He said, “Many people look at life and a lot of young ministers don’t want to miss God. So a lot of young ministers ask me, ‘How do I know it’s God’s will?’” Isn’t that a good question? How do I know that I’m hearing from heaven? How do I know that’s God’s will. Here’s an assurance for you. God does not leave it up to you to do that. Brother Hagin said, “God will make it so that you know that you know that you know.” That’s His responsibility. It’s His responsibility to get you to understand what’s right and what’s wrong. You’re not the revelator. He is. You’re not the teacher. He is. You’re not the one responsible for understanding when you open the scripture. It’s His responsibility to interpret that scripture to you and give you revelation. So you don’t have to live in the world of anxiety, thinking “I don’t know.” All you need to know is that He knows. And that’s it. He knows. And if He knows, He’ll let you know. And if I need to know, He’ll let me know. So relax. If you don’t know, it’s because you don’t need to know. Trust Me in life. It’s on a need-to-know basis.

Because when you go down the path of life, there are challenges that come up. They do. And that’s going to happen. But the Bible says that the Lord delivers us out of them all. But how intimidating is it to know, if you knew everything and the Lord told you everything and He says “Next week, you’re going to have an accident.” Do you want to know that? Would it be better that you didn’t know it? Yes! It’s better that you don’t know that. It’s better that all you know is that it’s all going to be okay. That’s all you need to know. And at the end, guess what? You get in an accident, but it didn’t hurt you. It didn’t bother you in any way. The insurance covered everything. You walked away and came out with a new car! So why did you need to know that.

All I’m saying is this: He cares enough for us to speak into our lives to allow us to hear from heaven when we need to know. And it’s His responsibility to do that. Not yours. So if it’s His responsibility, relax. Just do what Rob was doing. Just, “Lord, it’s under the blood. Thank You for the blood. Thank You for Your grace. Thank You for peace. That You love me. And that’s all I need to know. Because right now, I’m okay with that. You’re in the driver’s seat. You got this under control. And I put it in Your hands. Everything is going to be all right.”

Got that? When we live in that world, that’s a stress-free world. That’s no anxiety. That’s no fear. It’s absent in your life. When fear and anxiety are absent from your life, and all of a sudden, you realize the pain you had, you don’t have it anymore. All of a sudden, that challenge that you had, “I haven’t thought about that in a week. Shouldn’t I be thinking about that?” NO! No! You shouldn’t be thinking about that. That’s right. “I got it.” That’s what the Lord is saying: “I got this load. And I got your mind off your challenge long enough so that you can enter into My rest and My peace and enter into the promise that I promised you.” And no weapon formed against you can prosper. Any tongue that rises against you, He condemns that. You are His beloved. Though a thousand will fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, it will not come near you. And you will rejoice because it is not coming near you, and you walk away, fulfilled and full of peace in the joy of the Lord. That is your lot.

Last night, when this happened to me, I wasn’t asking Him for anything. I was just listening and brother Keith started playing on the piano. As he started playing, BAM! I went back into time. And you know what? I’m telling you this, God will do that for you. He will do that to you to calm you, to get you in a place of faith. And all that He requires from you is to let go. Let it go!

Pastor Ray shared…

Today I heard about this 18-year old man driving down the freeway in Los Angeles. His car stopped running. He pulled over and was so upset. He called his mother weeping.

He called his mother crying that his car stopped on the freeway!

His mother encouraged him. He turned it around because he realized he didn’t have an accident. The car didn’t blow up. It wasn’t on fire. It wasn’t a terrible thing. Things sometimes happen causing your car to stop. He did what he needed to do. He called a tow truck and towed it away for repairs. And everything worked out right.

I wrote a list of things not to do.

Stop focusing on all the ways that it won’t work out! It’s easy to focus on the worst possible outcome. But we don’t want to do that. Wednesday evening, I was meeting with the prayer leaders and Pastor Fulu was in there. He started praying in other tongues. I kept hearing him say, “Forget about it,” in his tongues. Then he asked if there were some people in the room that were having a hard time staying in the joy of the Lord. “Raise your hand.” Then they raised their hands and he prayed over them. There was a word about “The past is over, so you might as well forget about it. It’s over. It’s done. It’s finished. It’s a new day.” And if we keep our confession right concerning how things are going to work out, they’ll work out. They’ll line up with what we say.

Another thing is don’t try to control the way it works out. Just have faith that it will work out but don’t try to make it happen the way you see it happening. If we did that all the time, I wouldn’t be here. Years ago, I moved to Minneapolis from Iowa. I wasn’t even born again yet. But I had it in my heart to go to Minneapolis. God has done that over our lives. Our favorite book is “How to Be led by the Spirit.” If we’re led by the Spirit, we’ll be in the right place at the right time.

One other thing. Keep an open mind. Don’t just believe it’s going to work out. But take some action.  Know that it will work out but just do what He tells you to do. Be led by the Spirit and do what He says to do. And it’ll be all right.

This goes along with what Dave was saying. Luke 18, in The Message this is titled, “The persistent widow.” She came to the judge and would not stop until he gave into her.  The last two verses say “The master said after he explained it all, what happened, do you hear what that judge corrupt as he is, is saying?” In other words, he gave in. He took care of the widow because she wouldn’t be still. He went on to say, “So what makes you think that God won’t step in and work justice for His chosen people who continue to cry out for help. It’s not just whining. Won’t he stick up for them? I assure you He will. He will not drag His feet but how much of that kind of persistent faith will the Son of man find on the earth when He returns. That’s the whole deal.

Stay in faith. Amen?

Rob, start playing again. Let’s go back to that place where we’re resting in Him. I know He’s speaking to us.

Rob leads group in worship…


Lord, you know those names… those people… as we pray and stir ourselves up, we can without a doubt say It will work out right for you, for you, for you, for them, for those… You’re turning it around… You’re moving on our behalf… restored and made whole… restored and made new… the right key… moving it out… moving it away…

Word came…

The spirit of God in you, the Greater One, the work of the Holy Spirit in you to bring to you that which is needed. Every hour of every day He works within you, to bring good. To bring to pass those things which you desire in your heart, those things that you dream of, those things that I’ve spoken to your heart, the things that I’ve brought you through, the victories, the excitements, living in a place of joy and victory, joy unspeakable and full of glory. Right inside of you. And as you tap into Him and take His hand and flow, hear the music, hear the sounds of victory. A sound of victory. Inside you, there is a sound of victory. There’s a sound of deliverance inside your heart. There’s a possibility with in you. Sing for your possibilities. Sing for the victory. And as we sing and link with Him, we shall see with our own eyes the victory in this realm that You call real. In this realm that you call real, you shall see the manifested grace of God. You will see it with your eyes and you will hear it with your ears and you will walk in the fullness of this grace. His grace. His grace. His grace.

Thank You, Lord.

Dave shared…

So yesterday when the Holy Spirit spoke to me, He said that the connection He made with me at that moment, it was important that I put that inside of me and hold onto it. That I would take it into the future, that I would hold fast to it and remember. King David mentioned before his big battle with Goliath… he made a comment about what God had done for him in the past. And he was trying to communicate to those around him how God had given him the lion and the bear. And in that revelation that he received, he looked to Goliath and said, “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he defies the armies of God?” And he said that out of his spirit. He said that out of that which he held onto. The lion and the bear. He made the connection between the two. It propelled him into one of the greatest miracles in the Bible. We know the history.

But what God wants us to see is this: when we are down and out, when we feel hopeless or discouraged and like God forgot us… that there is a spirit of grace within you that is willing to grab your hand and take you to that place. He’s willing to fellowship with you and show you your lion and bear. He’s willing to show you everything He has done for you… your salvation, your deliverance, your provision, the grace, all sufficiency in all things… He’s willing to fellowship with you with that. And the reason He does that is because of your future. He doesn’t want you lying down. He wants you to rejoice because He’s a greater God than you lying down. If He is a great God, then you should be on your feet rejoicing. Pressing into the future with excitement, knowing this that I’ve been given the lion and I’ve been given the bear and I will have Goliath. Glory to God! When you get that in you, devil, get out of the way! You can’t be stopped. That’s faith! And the Spirit of faith is the one that gives you that seed of faith. So when the Holy Spirit comes a knocking, and says, “Do you remember?” You say, “Yes, Lord.” You become the “amen” corner. Yes, Lord, I got that one. I remember that. … Then you start pressing into the future. He’ll get the spring back in your step. He will make you not care about all your circumstances.
