BREAKTHROUGH PRAYER

May 10, 2016

Tuesday

 

Psalm 66:18-20

 

 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me: But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer. Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.

 

 

LESSON

 

God will not listen to the prayer of a person who nurses sin in his or her heart. God hears every prayer, of course, because He knows all, but He will not hear the prayer of such a person in the sense of answering it, under normal circumstances. The psalm closes with the psalmist’s personal benediction to God for granting his petition and bestowing His loyal love. When God’s people are in need they should purify their hearts and pray. When they do, He will answer and bless them. This should cause other people to honor and praise God.

Subtle sin hinders our prayer as surely as the blatant ones. It does not have to be blatant. It does not have to be an outward action. It does not have to be anything anyone else knows about. If we regard iniquity in our hearts the Lord will not listen. Don’t quit on the edge of your miracle, one more step can put you in the middle of your promised blessing.
