Dual Realities?

As some of you know (because I’ve posted it on Facebook), I am loving a new devotional book I got about a month ago – Jesus Calling by Sarah Young, and here is why.
 
This morning I read this...
Living in God's Presence means living in two realms simultaneously; the visible world and unseen, eternal reality. God has equipped us to stay conscious of Him while walking along dusty, earthbound paths.
Doesn’t that just make you stop and think about the reality that we are in this world, but not of it? That what we cannot see is far more real than what we can see?
Prayer is a vital part of this equation. We whisper a prayer here and may think that not much is happening, but in the spiritual realm prayer is the catalyst that initiates miracles!
All heaven springs into action and all hell cowers at the power unleashed by prayer. Let’s hit our knees and shake things up a little!

Pick one thing that you really want to see God do in your life or the life of someone you love. Spend this week in concentrated prayer for that one thing and let's see what happens. Feel free to post here what you're praying for and we'll pray with you about it.
 
And do yourself a favor - pick up a copy of Jesus Calling - Enjoying Peace in His Presence

Hi Jan ~ I too love that little devotional. It always applies. I love how you said,

"All heaven springs into action and all hell cowers at the power unleashed by prayer. Let’s hit our knees and shake things up a little!"

I'm with you. Let's put satan on the run!

Blessings . . . Chelle

You're right Chelle...it always applies. God certainly annointed Sarah Young to write that book!

I head up the prayer team about my church, so I like to remind myself and our team about the power of prayer...and I like to keep the devil on the run!

Thanks for dropping by.
