Testing The Limits of God

LISTEN/READ

Genesis chapter seven, beginning at verse 11: “In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.”

A day that few believed would come had suddenly come. There is a point of evil behavior among people that God will no longer overlook. The resistance of men towards truth causes them to believe that they can behave any way and call any evil good while somehow being immune to the consequences of those who went before them.

This is the peril of our time. As a society, we’re unwittingly testing the limits of God. I remind you that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. It is time to think about these things.

It’s time to pray.

He Will Give Us New Desires

LISTEN/READ

Psalm 37:4: “”Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”” There are godly desires when you delight yourself in God that He will grant to you, but He will also give you new desires. I’ve experienced this. I’ve delighted myself in God over the years and He’s given me new desires that I didn’t originally have.

When the Holy Spirit comes and takes up residence in our hearts, the Bible says He gives us a new heart, new mind, new Spirit, new life, new hope, and new future. We begin to have a desire to do what is pleasing in the sight of God.

God is asking us to delight ourselves in Him and He will give us new desires, individually, for each of our hearts. Then He alone will fulfill them. It’s time for you and me to delight ourselves in the Lord.

It’s time to pray.

Then He Closed The Book

LISTEN/READ

Luke 4:17-21: “And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.’ Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, ‘Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.’”

My friend, the book of your pain and sorrow can be closed today. I want you to think very, very deeply about this.

As you’re thinking, remember, it’s time to pray.

Pray for Your Sons and Daughters

LISTEN/READ

I want to challenge you today and encourage you to rise and fight against every enemy. Take spiritual authority. Pray for your sons. Pray for your daughters. Fight for your family members who are lost without Christ. Fight for those who are dear to you and maybe are lost through inattention. Maybe at one time, you did not fight for them because you had no real relationship with God.

Now, in Christ, you have the right to pray and to believe for them. You have the right to get your sons and daughters back. You’ve now been given spiritual authority to stand and fight on their behalf. It’s time to fight for them.

Join us. There are people from over 200 countries gathering together every Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. EST online at itstimetopray.org. We are believing in God, and incredible victories are happening in families. Sons and daughters are coming back home. You can read it in the section on answered prayer.

It’s time to pray.

For a Whole Day God Stopped the Universe

LISTEN/READ

Joshua 10:12-14: “Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel: ‘Sun, stand still over Gibeon; and Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.’ So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the people had revenge upon their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. And there has been no day like that, before it or after it, that the Lord heeded the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel.”

Joshua asked God to give him time to finish the fight. For a whole day, God stopped the universe. In the same manner, we understand that He is willing and able to answer our prayers.

It’s time to pray.

Will We?

LISTEN/READ

Luke 16:26: “And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.”

This passage of scripture speaks of the eternal separation that will happen at the end of time between those who know Christ and those who don’t. As the man in this story did, I wonder how many voices in eternal loss are crying out for you and me to warn their families of what awaits them without a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.

Knowing today that these voices are real, will we speak to those who are still lost, but can be saved? Will we pray that their hearts are opened to the truth and the mercy of God? Will we?

It’s time to pray.

God Turned Back Time

LISTEN/READ

2 Kings 20:8-11: “And Hezekiah said to Isaiah, ‘What is the sign that the Lord will heal me, and that I shall go up to the house of the Lord the third day?’ Then Isaiah said, ‘This is the sign to you from the Lord, that the Lord will do the thing which He has spoken: shall the shadow go forward ten degrees or go backward ten degrees?’ And Hezekiah answered, ‘It is an easy thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees; no, but let the shadow go backward ten degrees.’ So Isaiah the prophet cried out to the Lord, and He brought the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down on the sundial of Ahaz.”

God turned time back sovereignly, showing us that He can stop the very laws of nature. When we pray, we serve an almighty God that hears our cry.

It’s time to pray.

We Should

LISTEN/READ

Luke chapter 21, beginning at verse 25: “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.”

In these verses, Jesus speaks of a time coming to this world that may be sooner than most of us would like. Buildings will collapse. Fortunes will be lost. The future will have no bright horizon.

2 Peter 3:11 says, in part: “Since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be?” I suggest, as Christians, that if we care for the people of this world, that we are a people of prayer. We can ask God to give them life, light, and a future in Heaven. We should.

It’s time to pray.

Be Used for the Glory of God

LISTEN/READ

I want you to know that the Devil himself fears believers because he knows that when we escape his grasp, then we go after his kingdom.

We start to tell him, “You’re not going to take the promises of God from us. You’re not getting our joy. You’re not having our hope. You’re not taking away our calling, and you’re not taking the power of God from us. We’re going to grab hold of you, and we’re going to pull you down by the power of God’s Holy Spirit within us.”

When we win those secret battles, then we will have the power to stand in public and be used for the glory of God. I want to encourage you to come out with us on Tuesday night to the Times Square Church prayer meeting at itstimetopray.org, at 7:00 p.m. EST. People from over 200 countries are joining us. We’re praying live together, and believing in God for glory and victory in this generation. If ever there was a time to pray, it’s now.

It’s time to pray.

Rise Up and Be Victorious Again

LISTEN/READ

All we can do at times is believe our mediocre interpretations of God’s greatness. God has to override our thoughts and present Himself to us.

In Psalm 119, David is saying, “”If you enlarge my heart, I will run after you.”” I’m asking God that He gives everyone an enlarged heart, so we can begin to believe in Him for every situation we might be facing—difficulties and struggles in our homes and in our families.

I believe this is the hour for God’s church to rise and be victorious again. I’m asking the Lord to give us an expanded view of who He is, and that we can understand the largeness of His heart towards us. At times, we have such mediocre faith, and I want you and I to be lifted to a place where we actually believe God. In that belief, we stand up and begin to walk with Christ.

It’s time to pray.

His Mercy Endures Forever

LISTEN/READ

Psalm 107:1: “Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.”

I encourage you today to read this Psalm in its entirety. You will find it refreshing how merciful God really is. Though we are inclined to withhold from certain people, God doesn’t. People are lost, empty, and rebellious against the truth that they already know. They’re sinful to the point of losing life and loving money more than God.

Yet, when they cry out to Him, He comes to their aid. He satisfies their longing, breaks their chains, sets them free, calms their hearts, and gives them a new song of gladness. Maybe it’s time for you to experience His mercy today. Don’t be too ashamed to cry out for help.

It’s time to pray.

Because of Your Life

LISTEN/READ

Today, I’m believing in God to not only get you through your current situation but to get you through in victory. That because of your life, others will come into victory with Jesus Christ as well.

You might not know it, but God looks at you as a mighty warrior for His Kingdom. You’re not just an addict or a depressed person. You’re not just somebody that’s lost a lot of things in life. You are called to rule and reign with Christ. You’re called to live for Him and bring glory to His name while on this earth.

You’ve been given spiritual authority and power to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy. Today, step out in faith and know that God is with you. He has empowered you. He will provide for your every need. Stand up and know today that victory is yours. Remember to get this victory, for you and me.

It’s time to pray.

The Fork In The Road

LISTEN/READ

Proverbs 3:5-6: “”Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge him and he shall direct your paths.””

There’s a famous saying by the former baseball icon, Yogi Berra: “When you come to the fork in the road, take it.”” The truth is that some people try to live that way. They try to trust in God while, at the same time, trying to figure out their way into or out of a situation.

The result is almost always a divided heart and confusion, often with an escalating lack of confidence in God. God has His GPS, let Him recalculate your route today and watch your victory start to come into view.

It’s time to pray.

Invitation to Pray

LISTEN/READ

I’d like to invite you to be part of our worldwide prayer meeting that happens every Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. EST at itstimetopray.org. It’s our Times Square Church meeting. People are coming in from all over the world—up to 211 countries—and they’re coming in with prayer requests for deliverance, victory, strength in their times of weakness, and all kinds of things. I’m telling you God is answering prayer.

There’s something supernatural about this meeting. It’s the most unique meeting. We have communion together at the end of sharing God’s Word, and it’s one of the few places that I know of in the world, if not the only, where we can share at the Lord’s table together after praying together for an hour and a half.

I encourage you to come out and be part of this prayer meeting. It is time to pray because Christ is coming soon and you need the strength of God now to make it true.

It’s time to pray.

We Are Built on the Rock

LISTEN/READ

Today, we need to recognize that we are the temple of God, that God has chosen to dwell on the earth in us and express His glory through us. You and I are part of a temple that will not be overcome by the storms of life.

We’re built on the rock, which is Christ Jesus. We’re not built on the sand. We are built on the truth of God’s Word, and we’re built on the faithfulness of God through past generations. Jesus Christ said that He is building His church and the gates of Hell will not prevail against it.

You need to know today that no one will triumph over you. This is a great promise of God. As frail as you may think you are, as flawed as you think your life is, when you put yourself on His foundation, the foundation of trusting in God, you will not be overcome. God is always faithful. Trust Him.

It’s time to pray.

They Will Not Laugh For Long

LISTEN/READ

2 Corinthians 10:4-5: “”For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.””

On July 4th, 1776, the Congress of the newly formed United States formally voted for independence. They were essentially casting their ballots for the freedom of worship and freedom from repressive, controlling human government.

Today, we must ask ourselves if we’re willing to stand for what many of them died to give us. Today, we have the weapon of prayer—a force much more powerful than we could ever realize. Though the godless will mock what they see as a weakness, they will not laugh for long. No, sir, they will not last for long.

It’s time to pray.

Have You Considered?

LISTEN/READ

You and I live in a church age where people have lost all confidence in God. They’ve lost heart. They feel so down, dry, and useless. They don’t feel like they can contribute anything. So many can’t even get up out of the dust, let alone contribute anything to the Kingdom of God. They can’t stand at any measure against this onslaught of evil that’s come against society in our generation.

Today, have you considered that you’re the vessel that God wants to pick up and use again? Have you considered that He can take your voice, He can begin to speak through you, and do things that you never thought were possible in your lifetime?

You and I are never finished in the Kingdom of God. Even when we feel like we’re too old to fight, we can still encourage someone who’s still in the battle. There’s no restriction by age, young or old, in the Kingdom of God. Allow God to lift you and use you for His glory.

It’s time to pray.

Some Can Still Be Saved

LISTEN/READ

Revelation 20:12: “And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.”

What a terrible moment awaits those who lived the lives that God had given them here on this earth while at the same time pushing away the knowledge of who He is and what He had done for them through Jesus Christ. The terror of that moment cannot be described. Having loved darkness, it would now be their eternal home. For the first time, they would have seen the love of God and realized how absolutely foolish they had been to forsake it.

Some can still be saved from that moment. That’s why, for their sake, it’s time to pray.

I’m So Grateful

LISTEN/READ

I’m just so grateful for the reports that are coming in online. Reports of people who have decided to believe God, and are already beginning to see the fruit of their faith in God’s power and His goodness.

We have to recognize that we don’t fight this battle in our own might or our own power, but we fight it by the victory of Jesus Christ and by the indwelling power of God’s Holy Spirit. We have to lean upon God and His victory, upon His strength, upon His Word and His calling on each of our lives. We need to lean upon everything God has given to us to win this incredible victory in our generation.

I am so thankful for the people from 211 countries that join us every Tuesday night at 7:00 PM, Eastern Time. We are praying together, we are believing God in Times Square Church’s Worldwide Prayer Meeting. You can access it on itstimetopray.org. People are getting incredible victories, and they’re getting strengthened.

Join us, because it’s time to pray.

Have You Forgotten What God Can Do?

LISTEN/READ

There are so many who cannot see how God is able to use them. They don’t see themselves as being of any value to the Kingdom of God. So many people have bought a lie about God. It’s not a lie about yourself, it’s a lie about God.

You might actually be all the things that you think you are, but you have forgotten who God is. You have forgotten what God can do. You’ve forgotten that He’s not glorified by your strength. He’s not glorified by the majesty of our voices or how much we know. He’s glorified when a simple, weak, ordinary vessel like you and me says, “Here I am, Lord, send me. Here’s my life for Your glory.”

Suddenly, the hand of God picks us up and we find ourselves doing things we never thought we could do. The mercy and the life that God is willing to give us is absolutely amazing.

It’s time for you and me to pray.
