PLEASE, NEVER MIND!
You have rededicated your life to Jesus and decided to be committed to Him in
prayer, Bible reading and godly living. You want to pray but when you start praying
or reading your Bible you feel empty, dried, drained and wandering about; your
mind is not in the prayer. So what are you going to do? The answer is, do not mind
how you feel when you want to pray or while you are praying. The feeling is the attack of the devil to discourage from praying and to stop you.
So, continue praying, even if your mind is not there; keeping talking to God, singing
and saying something even when you feel empty, God understands.
Whenever you want to pray or read your Bible and you feel dry, empty, wandering
about or sleepy, it is satanic strategy to stop you, so you must not be ignorant of
his devices; do not stop, but continue, no matter how you feel or what you think. It’s when you stop that Satan wins you and destroys your spiritual strength, but if you
continue, God will renew your strength and you will grow stronger.
You may feel as if God is not listen to you, as if you should stop the prayer and pray
when you feel strong, or when you feel better in the spirit; but such suggestions are
from Satan. There is no better time to pray than when you don’t feel like praying, it
is because the devil knows your prayer will destroy his plan and purpose against your spiritual life, ministry, brethren, and family; he knows your prayer will open
heaven of power, grace and blessings of God on you at that very hour, so he will do
all to discourage you. But you must not be foolish to allow Satan to distract or
discourage you from praying when you ought to.
Christian life is not by feeling, but it is by faith even when you don’t feel it; it’s by
force even when you feel like sleeping or you feel weak, you must force yourself; Christian life is fighting, not a fun or a frivolous life, and your prayer life must be
fervent every day, not fluctuating. Never mind the feeling and never give up the
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in
the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” 1
PLEASE, NEVER MIND!
