Experiencing Christ

Prayer Being Joining Our Will to God’s

Matt. 18:18  Truly I say to you, Whatever you bind on the earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on the earth shall have been loosed in heaven.  John 7:17  If anyone resolves to do His will, he will know concerning the teaching, whether it is of God or whether I speak from Myself.

We know that God created man for the purpose that man would become one with Him to destroy Satan and his works. Man has a free will, and God’s intention is that man would will to join his will to God to oppose the will of Satan. This is the purpose of creation; it is also the purpose of redemption.
The life of the Lord Jesus demonstrates this. Although we do not know the reason, we know that God would not act independently. If God’s people would not sympathize with Him, if they would not subject their wills, and if they would not express their oneness with God in their prayer, God would
rather delay and sit back, than do anything alone. God has shown great honor to His people to allow them to work with Him. Although He is omnipotent, He loves to be restricted by His children. Although He is zealous for His own will, He would rather allow Satan’s evil plots to run rampant, if His people neglect His will and do not sympathize with Him or work with Him. Oh! If God’s children will not be as cold as they are now, and if they will be willing to stop themselves, to submit to God’s will, to care for God’s glory, and to keep His word more, God’s eternal purpose concerning what He intends to accomplish in this age will be fulfilled much sooner. The church also would not be in so much confusion, sinners would not be so stubborn, the Lord Jesus would return sooner, the kingdom of heaven would descend sooner, Satan and his hosts would be cast into the abyss sooner, and the knowledge of Jehovah would spread over the earth sooner. It is because believers care too much for themselves and do not work with God that so many enemies and so much lawlessness remain unbound, and so many sinners and so much grace are not loosed. Oh, heaven has been too restricted by men on earth!
