ROLE OF RESPONSIBILITY IN THE PLACE OF PRAYER
Text – MATTHEW 26:36-38
There are many prayer warriors but a few prayer champions. I pray that you shall become a prayer champion in Jesus’ name. From Matthew 26 verse 36-38, you will notice two instructions; Jesus said to the rest of the disciple, “Sit here while I go and pray.” To the three He said, “Stay here and watch with Me.” In our relationships with God, there are levels of responsibilities and revelations. The dealings of God with and in our lives will be determined by the responsibilities that He commits into our care. The Bible says, “To whom much is given, much is required (Luke. 12:48).” It is not every believer or every person that the Lord can say, “Watch with Me” to. There are some people that He will say, “You tarry here while I go and pray yonder” to. He didn’t even require them not to sleep or to pray. However, for those He wanted to play a crucial role in the drama that was about to unfold (the greatest battle that heaven and hell had ever fought over the human race was about being fought at that time), He required the three of them to tarry and watch with Him. I want you to know that you can build up your life and your walk with God to the point that God can make you a deciding factor in your city, in your nation, in your country, in your generation, in your church and in your family. You can be the deciding factor by a well-developed, sound and solid spiritual walk with God.
PRAYER: Holy Spirit, bring me into a closer level of relationship and responsibility with the Father as I walk with Him in Jesus’ name. Amen!
