Aren’t you glad that through His death and resurrection, Jesus took the keys from the enemy?
The Bible also says in Matthew 16:19 that He gives us the keys of the Kingdom
and that we have God’s power and authority when we pray!
We don’t serve a passive, wimpy God, but One with great might, power and authority.
Likewise, we don’t have to passively accept whatever the enemy throws our way.
I believe it’s a dangerous thing to live a “que sera sera” type of life, a “whatever will be, will be” existence.
I take this most seriously as I pray for my descendants.
I believe it’s my responsibility when I pray for them, to bind them to God’s will and purposes for their lives and to loose them from any plans of the enemy. I love to use the Word of God when I pray, because then I know I’m praying God’s will and not my own. One of the verses I pray aloud over my children and grandchildren is
Psalm 102:28 “Our children will dwell safely and continue and our descendants will thrive in Your Presence.”
Do you use scripture passages in prayer? If so, I’d love you to share one in a comment.
