Your Enemy Knows Where To Hit

January 30

“I have no greater joy than to hear
that my children walk in truth.”

3rd John 1:4

When Satan wants to hurt you, one of his greatest delights is coming against your children. What could hurt more? I know VERY few Christians whose children are walking in the truth.

Do you make the time to pray for your children? Prayer is the greatest tool we have. Prayer works. Prayer changes things. But one of the greatest hindrances to prayer is the enemy’s suggestion, “Look how long you’ve prayed and nothing has happened.” That is a LIE!

“The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man
AVAILS MUCH.”

James 5:16

The believer needs to understand that most of the time, there is a long time between the prayer and the answer. Moses waited 40 years. Abraham was so discouraged by the length of time passing, that he really messed things up by trying to force the answer by doing it himself — and most of us know what a disaster that caused, even to this day.

Keep praying. Pray diligently. Fast and pray. Be aware that God is setting up the circumstances, the stories that will one day be a testimony if only you don’t give up. Many times when a believer prays, the very opposite seems to be happening. This is a Satanic plot to stop you from praying. He will do all he can to stop you. Don’t fall for it!

The answers WILL come, if you persist.

“And let us not grow weary while doing good,
for in due season we shall reap
IF WE DO NOT LOSE HEART.”

Galatians 6:9
