Walking in God’s Authority
Luke 18:1 established the importance of prayer: “Then Jesus told His disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up”. I Thessalonians 5:17 confirmed: “Pray without ceasing.” Additionally, Ephesians 6:18 elaborates on these the same point: “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.” Every waking moment is to be lived in an awareness that God is with us and that He is actively involved and engaged in our thoughts and actions. When our thoughts turn to worry, fear, discouragement, and anger, we are to consciously and quickly turn every thought into prayer and every prayer into thanksgiving.
Prayerfulness is an essential part of Christian living and it flows out of humility and dependence on God. In order to walk in God’s authority every believer must continually be in the presence of God, constantly breathing in His truths and depending on His strength, grace, and mercy
