                   WILD AT HEART 

Napoleon was once asked, “What is the greatest want of the French nation? He hesitated for a moment then said with greatest impression,  “ The greatest want of the French nation is mothers.” God designed men to be dangerous. Simply look at the dreams of every boy: To be a hero, to be a warrior, to live a life of adventures and risk…

 

Sadly most men abandon those dreams and desires- aided by a Christianity that feels like nothing more than pressure to be a nice guy…

 

God gives men permission to be what God designed them to be- Dangerous, passionate, Alive and free…

 

Has the light gone out of your eyes? Are you hiding pain? Has the spring gone out of your steps? Where has the flame gone? Are you asking “will I ever live again?” It is time for men to pray. It is time to go to war as men and princes of God. Let’s wage war on the enemy…

 

We need to pound him through prayer, until you get that what he has taken from you. Let’s be real with each other and with God. Gentlemen its time to be WILD AT HEART…

 THE EFFECTS OF PRAYER

The Palmist prayed, “Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.” (Psalms 17:5)  

Prayer gives you the power to walk with God, for it is His strength that keeps your footsteps sure and secure…

 

The word of God tells us that as we wait upon the Lord, He renews out strength; “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and shall walk and not faint.”(Isaiah 40:31)

 

As we wait upon the Lord and seek Him continually, this promise becomes ours. Our strength will be renewed to defeat the enemy. We will mount up with wings as eagles, for the majestic bird stands upon the rock and mounts up when the wind currents are at full strength. Only those who wait upon the Lord are able to discern the currents of the Spirit and surrender to those-winds.

 

And the promise continues: they shall run and not be weary. Running is redeeming the time. It is impossible to redeem time without prayer. It is impossible to regain all that is lost without prayer, for Joel 2:25 tells us, “And I will restore that which the locust hath eaten.” Restoration and recovery are the result of prayer. This my prayer for you, as the Evangelist Dwight L Moody, once said, “A Christian on his knees will see more than a philosopher on his tip toes”
