Preserving life! They will be as still as a stone!

Hello, all Royal Prayer Guards! 

Welcome to another opportunity to give honor to God and demonstrate the responsibility of praying for others. 

Many of us as believers in Christ travel many times to many places. We would all agree that safety is in our prayers.

As we travel we need to remember who we are in Christ. Believers are the salt of the earth.

Matthew 5:13
"You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.

The Bible says believers are the salt of the earth. Think about that for a moment. Salt is a preservative; therefore, everywhere we go preserves everyone and everything around us no matter where we go. However, do we believe it? 

Also, as we travel we need to remember we are more than one thing in Christ. Believers are the light of the world.

Matthew 5:14
You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

So, no matter where we go there is light not darkness. People around us will receive some of the benefits of the light in us.

The main emphasis of this focus!

This is a powerful truth! All our enemies are still as a stone no matter where we go!

Exodus 15:16
Fear and dread will fall on them; By the greatness of Your arm They will be as still as a stone, Till Your people pass over, O LORD, Till the people pass over Whom You have purchased.

I believe God that fear and dread will fall on all our enemies in Jesus' name Amen!

I also believe God to cause all our enemies to be still as a stone no matter where my family goes in Jesus' name Amen!

However, who are our real enemies?

Ephesians 6:12
For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Opportunity for application:

1. Be the salt! Maintain effectiveness. (Matthew 5:13)

2. Be the light! Love your brothers and sisters in the Lord. (1 John 2:9-11)

3. Do what Jesus did. Use your delegated authority in the spirit realm. (John 14:12)

4. Realize who lives in us. Be mindful of this truth throughout the day. (Colossians 3:2) 

5. Ask Jesus into your life today. Make the decision. 
(Deuteronomy 30:19-20, 2 Corinthians 6:2, Acts 17:30, John 3:3, Romans 10:9-10)

6. Believe that all our enemies are still as a stone. Speak it out loud as a confession of faith.
(Exodus 15:16, Hebrews 4:14)

7. Understand who we are against. This decreases strife. (Ephesians 6:12, James 3:16, Proverbs 10:12)

Lastly, here is an excellent demonstration of Jesus preserving life!

Jesus is in the boat.

Jesus was in a boat and other little boats were also with Him.

Those little boats experienced a great calm because of Jesus and what He did. People will experience a great calm around us as we do what Jesus did.

Realize that if anyone received Jesus as their Lord and Savior, He is in their life. Ask Jesus to come into your life or boat today. Click here.

Mark 4:36-41
36 Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. 

37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 
38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?" 

39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm

40 But He said to them, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?" 

41 And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, "Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!"

John 17:18 
Just as You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
