Topic: The Power of Prayer and the Word [Seeds of Destiny 5 March 2019 Devotional]
SCRIPTURE: But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word. Acts 6:4.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The combination of prayer and the Word releases power to live an outstanding Christian life.
Dedication to God is evidently expressed through the devotional lifestyle of prayer and the study of the Word. The degree of your dedication to God is directly proportional to the health of your prayer and Word life. To the child of God, the ministry of Prayer and the Word of God is likened to the two legs of a person. In the realm of the spirit, one of your legs as a Christian must stand on prayer while the second leg must stand on the Word of God.
Now, what is the power of prayer and the word?
The power of Prayer and the Word of God is likened to the combination of dynamite and detonator; the kind of explosion you see physically when a dynamite and detonator are combined is what a person experiences in the spiritual realm when prayer is offered abundantly and the word of God is studied voraciously.
To throw more light, the practice of prayer and the Word is also likened to the combination of weapon and ammunition. When you combine the ministry of prayer and the Word of God effectively, the effect in the realm of the spirit is as powerful as the combination of weapon and ammunition that releases bullets, explosives and missiles and can dislodge and destroy the power of darkness. So, the practice of prayer and the study of the Word must be combined together in order for you to be an outstanding Christian, a kingdom star as well as a terror to the kingdom of darkness.
Beloved, the combination of prayer and the word releases power to live an outstanding Christian life.
Remember this: The combination of prayer and the word releases power to live an outstanding Christian life.
