“Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the LORD opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha”. (2 Kings 6:17- NIV)
Prayer is a powerful force. Prostrating ourselves before Jehovah is the best way to get positive results from Him. Once we allow our Spirit to bend toward the acceptable journey to know Yeshua - then we will start to live according, to the scripture, that said; “you are not far from the Kingdom of God” (Mk 12:34).
We are consumed with our “get it now” version of prayer. We rarely really wait for a response from Messiah Yeshua; hence, a prayer that is looming in our hearts is never fully answered by God. I am included in this scenario. What I have found is, we can all have the correct solution to our prayers if we just are still and quiet before Almighty God. Being still is so easily stated, but very difficult to accomplish in our mortal bodies. This is a practice that takes time, prayer, silence, and consistent yearning to accomplish.
We have too many distractions and in-fighting with our Spirit to do or think about life’s chaos. Being quiet and listening to the Holy Spirit speak to us takes time and tenacity, which we all have none? And yes, the excuses come forth like a wave of water - “we have to do this and that” neglecting the ultimate goal which is silence. Consequently, arriving once again back at square one with all of the sorrow, frustrations, disappointments, abandonment, discouragement, unfulfilled goals, and heartache.
