Theme For Jerry Savelle Devotional 31st January 2020 – GOD HEARS YOUR PRAYERS
The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry. (Psalm 34:15 NKJV)
Because of your righteousness in Christ, you can stand in the presence of God as though your sin had never occurred. You can stand in the presence of God without a sense of fear, guilt, or inferiority. You can stand in the presence of God because you are righteous. Jesus made you righteous, and there isn’t anything Satan can do about it.
The Bible says, “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16 NKJV). The Amplified translation says the prayer “makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].” This is what happens to a righteous person when he or she prays—and you are that righteous person. God’s eyes are upon you, He hears you, and your prayers are powerful.
When you pray, heaven stands to attention. When you pray, all the angels are on alert. When you pray, God declares, “That’s one of mine. That one is righteous. Let the prayer be answered!”
Confession: Father, I believe all of heaven stands to attention when I pray. I boldly come before You in faith today, knowing you will answer my prayer.
