I love martial arts. I studied for a few years myself and I’ll always remember one of the quotes from Bruce Lee my sensei told me, ““I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” If you were to have ‘one kick’ as a Christian, my belief is that it should be prayer. Master this one discipline and the devil himself will fear you, or at least your connection to the Spirit of God living inside you.
This Sunday we talked about the Lord’s model of prayer. You now have clear instruction on how to use the model Jesus gave us to take our prayer lives to the next level. The question now is if you’re going to practice that model or continue in the same patterns as before?
We’ve all heard the motto “practice makes perfect.” Is that what you want for your life or are you satisfied with simply mediocre? There is so much more available to us as believers if we would simply draw in to the presence of God and truly submit to His leadership.
My hope and prayer for you is:
“17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might” Ephesians 1:17-19
