TOPIC: GRACE AND PRAYER(2)
TEXT: Matt 17:2
“And he was changed in form before them; and his face was shining like the sun, and his clothing became white as light”
Grace restores the effectiveness of prayer.
When one prays under the power of God’s Grace, instant miracles happen. Our text also shows the transformation power that is revealed under such an atmosphere.
Until grace came, they all prayed to an unknown God, repeated words unknown to them and followed religious routines. But when grace came, he opened the door and gave access to divinity to all(Heb 10:20).
We can now have direct intercourse with divinity and produce giants on the earth!
“There were men of great strength and size on the earth in those days; and after that, when the sons of God had connection with the daughters of men, they gave birth to children these were the great men of old days, the men of great name”
While I am not doing a theological examination of the above text,one obvious truth here is that when the divine meets the earthly in effective communion, men of strength will be produced!
This is how grace fulfils her boast of bringing all men to stature and fullness of strength because the curtain of divinity will be opened to all(Ephesians 4:11-13)
Grace does not cancel prayer but rather restores its effectiveness.
Jesus prayed all night many times.We do not deserve such direct access to the father,that is why it is grace. But any who under use such access will be dwarf against the provision of grace.
Why won’t you make full use of access that grace provided and become the giants you are ordained to be in Christ.
Thank you Father for the uncommon access to kingdom treasures through effective prayer,I lay hold of this by grace in the name of Jesus!
