Angels strengthening you in prayer to birth your promise.
October 17, 2017
Coming out, He went to the Mount of Olives, as He was accustomed, and His disciples also followed Him. 40 When He came to the place, He said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.”
41 And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, 42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” 43 Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. 44 And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.[e]
45 When He rose up from prayer, and had come to His disciples, He found them sleeping from sorrow. 46 Then He said to them, “Why do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation.”
There is so much in these few verse!! First you see that Jesus prayed often and in this time, the disciples followed him. There in itself is a message. Jesus prayed often. As His disciples we are to follow in his footsteps. This is where Jesus got his power and strength.
Secondly Jesus warned that they should pray lest they fall into temptation. You see, the disciple must have been burdened too because he said they fell asleep with sorrow. So the temptation is when you are birthing something, you will feel the sorrow of it. But the goal here is not to let yourself fall asleep in prayerlessness but see it through to birthing it in prayer. It may cost you some sleep. Jesus had to, we must too.
Thirdly is, Jesus was strengthen by a angel after His intercession. I believe Jesus will do the same with you too. We have angelic help to help us birth what God is wanting. So don’t give up in the travail and burden of the Lord. Press and push through in prayer. There are angels waiting to strengthen you through the pushing. You are not alone. You will succeed!, As you have all heavens assistance, and backing you.
So stay fervent in prayer always. Jesus endured and was resurrected. So will be, the calling and purpose for your life. You will glorify God as you persist in prayer and press in until you see His kingdom come.
