“The power made available in the place of prayers is greater than the man that prayed”
- Understanding your divine authority in the place of prayers.
“Authority is not just power but authority is a KNOWING and then living by what you know”
Though authority means power but what is the essence of authority when you don’t have an understanding of it. Unless understanding comes we have not yet entered into authority just like a child can not be given authority unless he come of age, that means to have acquired some measures of understanding, maturity or knowing and when we have come into knowing then we move to right use of authority that’s why Paul prayed that the eyes of your understanding being enlightened. For when eyes is enlightened what comes up is a KNOWING and where authority lies is in the place of knowing.
Ephesians 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
1:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; THAT YE MAY KNOW what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
When the eyes is opened then authority to access the power of prayers is gained. We can’t come into authority without a knowing, so we see a man Elijah who knew the effect of prayers even to a point where he held the sound of abundance of rain and he told Ahab to go and eat but he went to pray
1 Kings 18:41 And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, EAT AND DRINK; for there is a sound of abundance of rain.
18:42 So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he CAST HIMSELF DOWN UPON THE EARTH, AND PUT HIS FACE BETWEEN HIS KNEES,
This was the same man that was found that there will be no rain for three and half years and there was no rain and then came back to cause the rain to begin to fall.
James 5:17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he PRAYED EARNESTLY that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
5:18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.
This we found that he said in
1 Kings 17:1 And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.
Now note this he never said according to the word of the Lord but according to his word
…As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, BUT ACCORDING TO MY WORD.
His words has carried so much power that by uttering his word in the place of authority of what he knows rain ceased from falling for that time and then he uttered words again and things came back to normal. We also saw how he disgraced the prophets of baals and showing off the Lord before them. Now, this is it, unless we have come into fellowship of prayer our words may not be mixed with the words of the Lord. For there are some folks that talk like some people by reason of fellowship much more as we fellowship with God in the place of prayers we shall talk like the Lord. God’s people are God’s mouth piece on the earth.
