During this week of chain of chain prayer, the week of the 9th-13 January, as we seek God, it would be good to focus on the following  points among others as we seek God and strive for a closer walk with Jesus:

1. Strengthening our faith - Romans 10:17 states that 'faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.' We need to go deeper in God's Word and allow the Word to strengthen our faith.

2. Straightening our walk - It is by applying the Word of God to our lives that our spiritual walk would be straightened. Psalm 119:105 says 'Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. Also read Hebrews 12:12 and Isaiah 40:3-5

3. Stimulating our mind - What stimulates our minds? 1 Corinthians 2:13-16 reminds us that the Word of God transforms our minds. The natural man does not understand spiritual things for they are foolishness to him. It is he who is spiritual that can understand the mind of Christ, the ways of Christ and practices them. The heart of man is deceitful and desperately wicked - Jer. 17:9 but it is the mind circumcised by the Word of God - Jere 4:4 that can discern spiritual things. Phil.3:3 says 'we are the circumcision....'  Matthew 12:34 reminds us that out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. Phil. 2:5 says that we have the mind of Christ.

 

May God take us to a higher level in Him. Rom. 12:2 (Amp) says we should not allow the world around us to squeeze us into its own mould but that  we should be transformed by a renewing of our minds to that which is good and acceptable to Him.
