Day 7: Prayer Power

Read Matthew 7

The Lord continues His counsel of variety of issues of life. These involve some of the most delicate and vital duties of the Christian life. On judging others, he does not support the idea of looking unfavorably on the character and actions of others, which leads to the pronouncing of rash, unjust, and unlovely judgments upon them. He was laying a principle of divine administration. Unkind judgment of others will be judicially returned upon ourselves, in the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ.

He give more instructions for prayer.

Ask . . . seek . . . knock: We see a progressive intensity, going from ask to seek to knock. Jesus tells us to have intensity and passion in prayer. Ask and it will be given to you: God promises an answer to the one who diligently seeks Him. In verse 9-11 the Lord vividly illustrates the giving nature of God.

He further teaches on how to know the False prophets; He challenges every disciple to take heed to his own salvation; God’s demand that we be doers of the word, not merely hearers.

Outline:

    • Appropriate Judgment (7:1-27)
    • Do Not Judge Others (7:1-6)
    • Good Gifts Guaranteed (7:7-12)
    • The Narrow Way (7:13-14)
    • Discern by Fruits, Not Gifts (7:15-23)
    • Obeying Jesus’ Words (7:24-27)
    •  Jesus’ Hearers Recognize His Authority (7:28-29)

Prayer:

  1.  pray that you will not be judgmental of other but have the right attitude towards others.
  2.  Pry for strength and discipline in your prayer devotion
  3.  Pry for strength and to be a doer of God’s word

Meditation:  

“Satan trembles when he sees the weakest Christian on his knees.”

– William Cowper
