MOUNT PRESSURE ON THE DEVIL!

Be Unceasing In Prayer [Praying Perseveringly] (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

The Spirit’s admonition through the Apostle Paul above is for us to be constant and persistent in prayer. Romans 12:12 tells us: “Rejoice {and} exult in hope; be steadfast and patient in suffering {and} tribulation; be constant in prayer.”
Many times, Satan seeks to influence and manipulate people, situations, circumstances, government, agencies etc., just to get to us. But we must learn to thwart his efforts. Every time you pray, you actually mount pressure on the adversary, therefore be unceasing and importunate in prayer.
Too often, many wait until trouble strikes before they pray. The Bible says in James 4:7, “…Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” That means be on the offensive against the devil; mount pressure against him. Counter his advances ever before he makes more trouble.
2 Corinthians 2:11 says we’re no ignorant of Satan’s devices. Therefore, when you pray, pray like one who knows the stratagems of satan. With authoritative words, rebuke unbelief, fear, and discouragement from your life and God’s people. Speak in tougues and break Satan’s dominion over those with whom you engage man who makes a decision. Don’t spend your time watching merely television or video 24 hours a day. Those you’re watching have put there best into what you’re watching.
Yesterday may be gone, but you have today; make it count. You may not be able to change yesterday but you can plan today to change tomorrow. You can do something about tomorrow and to do something about tomorrow,you’ve got to do it today. So make the most of your time. Remember, there’s no extra time; therefore whatever you do now, do it the best way, the first time.
