How God Works

 

As you read my book, A Journey to Victorious Praying, you will be able to note the answer to the following question:  When God wants to do something, what does He do to bring it about?  The Bible is clear about how God works.  When He wants to do something, He puts a prayer concern on someone’s heart.  As that person responds in prayer to what God has put on their heart, the work of God is set in motion.  We saw this principle in a previous illusion to Isaiah 62:6-7, “You who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourself and give Him no rest until He establishes and make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.”  You can also observe this principle in Matthew 9:36-38.  We observe Jesus – God in the flesh –desiring something to happen as He feels compassion for the multitude.  We next see Him placing this prayer concern on the hearts of His disciples by asking them to look at the ripeness of the harvest fields.  The next instruction is for the disciples to respond to this concern and pray “Lord, send out laborers into the harvest.”  As I read Operation World, which is a prayer manual for the nations, this is my continual prayer.  Why not join me in prayer this week that our great God would thrust out laborers into the harvest and send His encouragement and aid to those who are currently laboring?  Let’s pray this together in response to our temptation.  God bless you.
