Topic: Destiny Door Closer [Thursday February 16, 2017]
Scripture: The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16.
Thought For The Day: Nothing closes the door to breakthroughs in life like sin.
Today, many people pray without result because they do not pray according to Divine Guidelines
What kind of prayer attracts answers and results from heaven?
It is the prayer offered with a pure heart. According to our anchor scripture, it is the prayer of a righteous man that availeth much. A clear conscience is the assurance of answered prayer.
Sin hinders access to God. Just as you cannot request anything from someone whose telephone line you cannot access, you cannot request anything from God when you cannot access Him. Nothing closes the door to breakthroughs of life like sin. Anything that defiles your conscience denies you access to receiving from Heaven.
Ask God to reveal to you whatever is in your life that is hindering you from having access to Him.
Sin closes doors. Nothing closes the door to every breakthrough of life like sin. After Adam and Eve sinned, they were chased out of the Garden of Eden and the cherubim closed the door (Genesis 3:24).
The moment they sinned against God, their access to the Garden was blocked and denied; they were driven from the Presence of the Lord.
Receive the grace to live a sin-free life in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Nothing closes the door to breakthroughs in life like sin.
1. Search your life and repent from any sin that can hinder your access to God’s Presence.
2. Make up your mind to live a sin-free life.
