Breaking Into Refreshing & Joy

Different situations and seasons require different types of prayer. In prayer sometimes we kneel, lay down in more receptive position or stand depending on what is needed. It is always good to rest and soak in the Presence of God everyday. There are other times we need to stand in prayer, stir up our spirit and activate our hearts. We need to incorporate all these types of prayer in seeking God. Standing in prayer is helpful to awaken your senses, stirring up your heart in the Presence of God.
Mark 11:25
?And whenever you stand praying??
No Heavy Yokes
This can include taking authority over darkness that would try to oppress. Have you ever felt like there is just a heaviness upon your back that is like a heavy yoke? Jesus said that the yoke He gives us is easy and His burden is light. (Matt. 11:30) Like it or not we are in a war and there are times that we need use the weapons that God has given to us in prayer not allowing the enemy to weigh us down. Greater is the One inside of us than he that is in the world. He has given us the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. (Isaiah 61:3) Through our praise, engagement in worship and exaltation of the Name of Jesus we can conquer anything that comes our way.
James 5:16
?The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.?
Break the Invisible Barrier
Don?t settle down into a rut, but rather stir your heart to pursue God knocking away every obstacle that might try to hinder. Thanks to what Jesus has done through the power of His cross we have the victory. There is power in His Name and in His blood. Did you know that God wants to pour refreshing out on your life? His waters never cease. He wants to release a new sound in your spirit. Sometimes we just need to take the sword of the Lord and pop open that invisible barrier through decreeing what God says coming into alignment with His heart. When we do the glory Presence of God will come rushing in on our heads with refreshment. God wants His people refreshed and blessed. We need to take what is rightfully ours rather than settling for a passive mindset. God wants to bring us into a place of gladness.?God?s news is good news and it only gets better as we go.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5
?For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.?
Stand Your Ground
Keep the faith. Stand your ground. Use your weapons, for they are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. His victory is our victory and we have all the reasons in the world to rejoice! Maintain that victory through the cycles of worship, prayer and taking your authority in Christ. Jesus paid the highest price that we could live in joy, faith and freedom.
