If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses?
JEREMIAH 12: 5
Before you can be a privileged confidante and adviser fully participating in the big conversation of heaven, you must first learn to do battle in the trenches of your own personal life and the world it touches. Before you can pray for the building of a five-thousand-seat church, you must first learn to successfully pray to cover your rent or mortgage. You will never know how to win your city for Jesus until you know how to pray your neighbors and your family into the kingdom. You will never hear the strategies of heaven for your nation until you know how to hear the plans and purposes of heaven for your own life.
Father, all I need is faith the size of a mustard seed. With that much faith I can tell mountains to move. So I stand in faith today, believing that You will meet every need and respond to every care. I bring everything that concerns me to You, knowing that nothing is too small. The same God who saved me can save my loved ones, and You can also change cities and nations. My faith is rising, even today, as I depend completely on You. In Jesus name, amen.
