Gods reputation.

I remember I was lying on my bed praying, when I suddenly had the revelation that God cared what I thought of Him.  I could hardly comprehend this!

I was always concerned about what God thought of me, but finding out that He cared about what I thought of Him overwhelmed me with love.

Only after this did I begin to notice how important it was to God that people knew Him for who he really is. I began to see that some of the great men in scripture would pray that God would remember his promises to Israel and that He should consider what the enemies of Israel would say about Him if he forgot His promises. God always answered because He really does care what we think about Him.

I was reading the book of Isaiah yesterday, chapter 62 and was struck by verses 6 and 7 that say “You, who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves; give Him no rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth”

Reading this verse it is evident that God is saying that we should remind Him of his promises and give Him no rest until he establishes the promise He has made! It feels disrespectful to even think this way about our Father, but this is in His word and He wants us to do this.

Jesus says something similar in a parable on prayer in Luke: 11, verses 5 to 10.  We are again encouraged to persist in prayer, to keep asking and knocking.

I our breakthrough our healing our victory is right before us. If it’s promised in the Word of God and we cry out to God for the fulfilment of the promise, God has staked His reputation on the fact that He will hear our prayer and if we fulfil our side of the bargain He will fulfil His.

I can’t help thinking that the more fervent we are in demanding the fulfilment of promise, the more we will see miracles happen.

It’s what God is looking for.

Pray for the peace of Israel.

I had a fantastic evening praying  for Israel with a group of Christian friends tonight. This group runs at the home of a lovely couple from my church, Chris and Karen.

While we were praying, I was reminded about the many times over the past fifty years that Israels enemies have attacked her and how the world has looked on expecting sure defeat and perhaps even extinction for the Jewish people because they have been so outnumbered and outgunned,only for the whole world to look on in astonishment as Israel has overcame her enemies, time and time again.

Not many people are aware that American military strategists, who study military campaigns to see if they can learn lessons for American forces, have stopped studying Israels wars. They have concluded that the wars involving Israel make no military sense.

I firmly believe the reason for this is because Israel and the Jewish people, had a promise from God that when they were returned to their land, that He would protect them from their enemies.

The thing about this is, Christians also have the promise that when we are attacked from our enemy, God will lead us to victory.

God does not fight for us, but rather He fights along side us until we have learned to defeat our enemy.  We don’t have to worry if we seem to be in jaws of defeat and extinction, God does not change His mind about His promise just because we are in a dark place.

He fulfils His promise because He does not lie and if He says he will do something, we can rely on Him to do it.

Shalom.
