For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
So then death worketh in us, but life in you.
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
– 2 Corinthians 4:6-18
The spiritual world is far bigger than the physical world. The physical world comprises only about thirty percent of the world. If as much as seventy percent of what makes up the world is invisible, it follows that anyone who can only exert influence on the physical world is greatly limited.
As a Christian, you connect the invisible spiritual realm through the Holy Spirit that is in you. The Holy Spirit is not only in you, But He is also an integral part of everything that is in creation. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.” Where Jesus is, the Holy Spirit is there also.
Because Jesus in whose name you pray is connected to everything, nothing is too far away for you to reach through prayer; nothing is too strong for you to break through prayer.; no problem is too complex for you to solve through prayer.
Any time you switch from your normal life into praising God, worshipping Him, interceding or making supplications, know that you have moved from the normal physical world into the spiritual world. Can you increase the frequency and duration of your prayers every day? If you do, you will be increasing the duration of time you spend in the spirit realm. If you remain steadfast in doing this, you will soon experience firsthand that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much (James 5:16).
- Worship God and pray that His Kingdom will come in your environment.
- Destroy every veil or covering that obstruct your communication and fellowship with God.
CONFESSION: I am in this world, but I am not of this world. I am influential here and even more so in the spiritual world.
