Seek the Welfare!

Jeremiah 29:7But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile and pray to the Lord on its behalf for in its welfare, you will find your welfare.”– Jeremiah 29:7

This is clear Word from God to people who feel, 'hey, this is darkness, gloom, doom, may be you feel I don't fit in here’, but God speaks directly to you today, wherever you are stuck, trapped, don't try to escape or get a divorce- that is not the remedy, God wants you to pray for their welfare and He goes on to say, " in its welfare, you will find your welfare.” God is quite clear that our deliverance depends on our prayer for the people around us. Anybody listening???

Detaching yourself is not God's way at all, be in the battle and pray for victory.  Daniel did not run away from Babylon because of its atrocities and idolatry, he stayed there and prayed 3 times for them . Are you listening???? May be you are the only one saved, then this place of exile is prayer ground. Kneel down and pray for the hard hearted lost souls in your family. As per the above scripture, you are accountable for their souls.

Let me now broaden our border and look how we impact our society.  As we look at the New Testament days, we are all in exile, and looking forward for the Heavenly city,  therefore, instead of cursing and mocking the city where we live, we have a great responsibility to pray for the city meticulously. Now listen! The book of Esther says, ‘the city of Sushan was in confusion.” (Esther 3:15) Mordecai wore sackcloth and fasted against the evil, demonic forces that was coming against the people of God. He knew this could be broken only through fasting and on his knees. Let me tell you friends, certain things cannot be amended, rectified or set right through arguments, quarrel and reasoning – you got to fast and pray. Amen. Hear me say this today, you got to fast and pray. It is a spiritual discipline. Back while I worked in a bank, I taught my colleagues to fast and pray and many experienced miracles and breakthrough.

When Esther and her maids joined Mordecai and the people of God in fasting, amazing things happened. We are starting 21 days fasting from November 7 to November 27, you can join too.

We need to get the names of all the local streets in our community and pray , instead of grumbling about the bad behavior of leaders, we have to get the names of leaders and pray. Are you part of an intercessory prayer group who pray for nations, leaders and missionaries, if not join right away.
