I’m sitting here at my table with my hands on my head. I’m pondering. I’m upset. I’m mad really. Mad at the devil because his schemes are deep and his is very successful at distracting people. I started a study the other day and it was talking about praying for the coming of the Lord. As I did I began to think of people who I knew that are unsaved. I can’t pray for God’s coming to be hastened if I am not willing to be more earnest about their salvation. It makes me wonder,…“what have I bound on earth lately?”
If I have the promise in Matthew 16:19 “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” I’m here mad at the devil but have I prayed that he be bound? Lord,…I pray for those who are taken in his lies. I pray that you break the chains that tie them to his deceits. Break them completely. Open our hearts to your truth and to the realization of the lies we have believed. Release you Spirit among us that we may know your goodness and truth. We are so accustomed to the lies of the enemy because he is the only one we listen to. Forgive us. Forgive us. Block the voice of the devil from us so that we may hear you clearly!
