Jeremiah 33:3 “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
Acts 4:19-20 “But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”
In today’s America, Christians are on the defensive. We are getting bombarded by a progressive and secular culture that has taken the initiative while we cower in the corner. We let our adversaries move first while carefully countering them in weak and feeble ways. Unfortunately but predictably, this strategy has yielded ground at every encounter.
Christians in times past had no problem taking the offensive, come what may. Emboldened by prayer, they took the initiative and brought the battle directly to the enemy. After all, they could not but speak the things which they had seen and heard.
What is the first step of such boldness among Christians today? Prayer! We must call unto God, and He will answer us. He will shew us great and mighty things, which we knowest not. Along the way, He will embolden us to speak the things which we have seen and heard. Predictably, such a strategy will yield results and not ground.
PLEASE PRAY FOR POWERFUL INITIATIVE AMONG AMERICAN CHRISTIANS. We must call unto Him to see things that we cannot even fathom.
