*Power to prevail 2*
After describing the meaning of power to prevail. The next thing to note is how to obtain that power, how do you obtain this power I am talking about. After all said and done if you do not know how to obtain this power its a wasted effort indeed. Stay put and read carefully the words of this message.
*How to obtain the power to prevail.*
1.) Through prayers… You must have heard this many times but its still good you hear it again. Everything in heaven respond to prayers made here on earth. The efficient prayer of a righteous man availeth much. When Jesus prayed and His countenance changed that is Him getting in contact with power. While Jacob was wrestling that was a form of prayer. And he prevailed and got power through it. Every one in the Bible who ever walked in power where all people of prayers. They more you pray, they more you interact with the Spirit who gives power. Praying with the Word of God and praying in the spirit generates a lot of power. For you to obtain power you have to pray to God, nothing comes from God when you don’t ask it of Him, so, invade you need power pray for it and you will receive it, having all other spiritual parameters intact you will receive it.
2.) Through desperation… A desperate spirit was one thing Jacob had, because of his desperation he got both blessing and power. He never asked for power but he got that through desperation. God saw through his desperation that if he was giving power he will manage it well. Desperation is key to receiving anything from God. It is very important. When you are desperate God knows that you are serious. A desperate heart will do all what is needful to get what he needs and God loves such people. Jacob might not have known this man he fought with, but something in him said he should not let him go, even when he didn’t know him. Desperation will make you go the extra mile in order to achieve your dreams and your aspiration in this case power to prevail. Desperation changes everything, desperation leads to expectation and expectations to answers.
3.) Through fasting… Fasting remains a major source of power. If you must obtain power you must know how to fast, it is a perquisite for power. Check any powerful man of God or any person powerful spiritually they know how to fast and they have a regular fasting schedule. To fast is to fasting your spirit, when you start feeling light then the spirit starts feeling heavy. Fasting is a mystery but it works. When you fast you tell the Holy Spirit that you though a man can do without food for some time and you are proven the word of God to be true which says man shall not live by bread alone. Fasting opens you into the spirit realm and grants you access into spiritual revelations. Have it occurred to you that the man Jacob wrestled might have been a spirit and that of all certainty Jacob was on a fast because food will be the last thing on his mind when he is in a cross road with death. So it is possible he has been translated into the realm of the spirit to have seen and wrestled that man. Fasting is a powerful tool, it grants us supernatural power to do powerful things in the realm of the spirit.
4.) Through the word of God… Now Jacob life was transformed through the Word of God that came from God via the man he wrestled. The Word of God is the container of power, if only you can locate that particular word that is meant for you then your life won’t remain the same. If only you can get God to speak into your life like He spoke into Jacob’s life. The Word of God was what created the universe. Except you didn’t hear it clearly but if you did congrats because your life will never remain the same.
