In these days he went out to the mountain to pray, and all night he continued in prayer to God.
And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed.
Extended time alone in remote places with His Father was a part of Jesus’ life. Jesus prepared for ministry by 40 days alone in the desert (perhaps our seminaries and Bible colleges should offer desert time.) Jesus modeled a life of seeking God, alone, away from others.
Today’s message challenges you to do the same.
The dark times we live in are sifting many. The church is being pruned… some are walking away from God. Bible knowledge alone isn’t enough; truth that doesn’t hit the core of the heart rebounds to the mind where it can rot or fester into pride. We must equip God’s people to be the overcomers and warriors they’re called to be. We must go rogue and live God’s word with a sense of urgency.
To go rogue is to have an uncommon relationship with God; the only way to have this is to become a prayer warrior who seeks God consistently and understands how to walk with Him, hear from Him, rest with Him. The 30 Days of Prayer have been equipping you to live a life for eternity that will have impact.
Some of you are still wounded. Maybe “God help me” prayers are the best you can offer some days. Keep going after Him for His strength, wisdom, guidance, and healing. Remember to wait for His leading and don’t get too far ahead of Him.
If you take up today’s challenge to spend one or two days alone with the Lord, and if you set aside all distractions and go after Him with all of your heart, your relationship with Him will go to a higher level. Your hunger for God will intensify and you’ll have more clarity on the powerful blessing of prayer.
Our churches have been blowing it by not putting their people on their knees and training them to be prayer warriors. If your church isn’t equipped and challenging you to be a spiritual fighter, maybe it’s time to ask God if it’s time to look for another tribe. Every believer has more spiritual firepower than they realize. We’re praying to the Creator of the Universe! Do you understand the incredible power and wonder behind all of what prayer is?
It’s time to go rogue.
