Prayer Summary for April 30


The following excerpt is taken from The Power of Your Words by Don Gossett and E. W. Kenyon:

The Right Confession

Jesus said, “For I spake not from myself; but the Father that sent me, he hath given me a commandment, what I should speak” John 12:49.
Every healing that Jesus performed was wrought through His Father’s Word. Every Word that He spoke was the Father’s Word.
Jesus knew who He was; He knew his place; He knew His work.
He was always positive in His message. He knew the words that He spoke were His Father’s Words.
He took His place as a Son. He acted His part.
He continually confessed His Sonship.
Jesus always confessed what He was.
He said, “I am the Good Shepherd. I am the Bread of Life. I am the water of Life. God is My Father. I am the Light of the Word.”
In John 5:19–30, Jesus makes ten statements about Himself.
They are really confessions, and every one of them links Him up with Deity.
He was speaking His Father’s own Word.
John 7:29 “I know Him; because I am from Him, and He sent me.”
He not only confessed what He was, but He also fearlessly confessed what man would be after he became a New Creation.
John 15:5 “I am the vine, ye are the branches.”
John 7:38–39 “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, from within him shall flow rivers of living water. But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believed on him were to receive: for the Spirit was not yet given; because Jesus was not yet glorified.”
What a confession that was and how real it became on the Day of Pentecost!
John 8:54 “If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing: it is my Father that glorifieth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God; and ye have not known him: but I know Him; and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be like unto you, a liar; but I know him, and keep his word.”
John 17:5 “And now Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.”
That was a remarkable testimony.
John 17:26 “And I made known unto them thy name, and will make it known.”
Jesus knew the new name that God was to receive.
John 17:6 “I manifested thy name unto the men whom thou gavest me out of the world.”
I have conviction that the new name which Jesus speaks of here is “Father.”
No one had ever called Him “Father” before.
John 9:35–36 “Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and finding him, he said, Dost thou believe on him?”
Jesus then confessed who He really was.
In the 37th verse Jesus said to the man who had been blind, “Thou has both seen him, and he it is that speaketh with thee.”
Jesus openly declared that He was the Son of God.
In John 4:26 we have another startling confession.

He was talking with the woman of Samaria and He confessed that He was the Messiah, the Son of God.

Jesus Knew Who He Was

Nearly every miracle that Jesus performed was performed with the Father’s words in Jesus’ lips.
Jesus revealed the will of the Father.
John 4:34, “My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to accomplish his work.”
John 5:30 “I seek not mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.”
John 6:38 “I am come down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.”
John 8:29 “For I do always the things that are pleasing to him.”
What a picture of the Master! He had no personal ambitions, no personal ends to achieve. He was simply doing the will of His Father, unveiling the Father until He could say, “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father” (John 14:9).
The less worldly ambitions we have, the less worldly desires, the more fully the Father will unveil himself to us.
His Words in our lips will perform the same prodigies that His Words performed in Jesus’ lips.
Self-seeking limits one.
The selfish man is a limited man.
He who lives in the Word and lets the Word live in him, he who practices the Word and acts upon it, is the one who reveals the Father.
When we act upon the Word of God, we unveil the Father.
