God gives us the ground

  |  0 Comments

God gives us the ground in answer to the prayer of faith, but not the harvest. That must be worked for in co-operation with Him. Faith must be followed up by works, prayer works. Salvation is of grace, but it mustbe worked out (Phil 2:12) if it is to become ours. And the prayer of faith is just the same. It is given to us by free grace, but it will never be ours till we follow it up, work it out.

Passivity or call it by

  |  0 Comments

Passivity or call it by an uglier word, laziness is the cause of half my defeat. I need never be defeated as I know quite well. Victory all the rest of the day… When you are weak and feel unable to free yourself from the power of sin – just up and sing as song or shout a determined note of defiance against the enemy and then roll up your sleevs and do some good Lisu study. Lack of this spirit brings defeat. Moral:
Try to find God’s balance between prayer and work.

How often Christian leaders make

  |  0 Comments

How often Christian leaders make their own plans, work hard at them and then earnestly ask God’s blessing on them. How much better as Hudson Taylor felt, to wait on God to know His plans before commencing! Much Christian work seems to have teh stamp of the carnal on it. It may be “good” it may be successful outwardly – but teh Shekinah glory is not there.

By definite prayer I mean

  |  0 Comments

By definite prayer I mean prayer after the pattern of Matt 21:21-22; John 15:7 etc where a definite petition is offered up and definite faith exercised for its fulfilment. Now faith is exercised in the other kind of prayer also, when wepray for many and varied things without knowing the will of God in every case…

In general prayer I am limited by my ignorance. But this kind of payer is the duty of us all. (1 Tim 2:1-2) however vague it has to be…

But definite prayer is a very different matter. It is in a special sense “the prayer of faith”. A definited request is made in definite faith for a definite answer.
