I remember those days while growing up, we would attempt some weight lifting exercise. Then after a day or two, we would start checking our muscles. Most times, we would feel disappointed that nothing is showing. What we failed to realise is that growth does not happen in a day, it happens daily.
“Successful people do daily, what others do occasionally. They do by commitment what others do by convenience.” This is perhaps another profound statement that has impacted me greatly. What we would become ultimately is a function of what we do daily. This is what The Daily Life Secret is about; it is staying committed to daily life of progress.
Prayers are avenues to build your spiritual muscles. It is a daily training that every believer must get involved in. You are as built as your prayer life. Your spiritual strength is directly proportional to your daily life of prayer. Truly, “seven prayerless days make one weak.” Just like you don’t visit a gym once in a while and expect your muscle to be built, you don’t pray when you feel like and wonder while you are weak.
But you, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost” (Jude 1:20). That is what happens when we pray, particularly in tongues; there is a building up. One of the secrets to a glorious destiny is to learn to build up. While some are building superstructures (edifices) through prayers, others are building mud houses. The difference will show in later years.
Prayer is an investment into the future, and it must be daily. It is a building. It is superior to physical exercise as it secures the future (1 Timothy 4:7-8). If athletes get results from their daily builds, we would get something better from daily prayers. This is our work as New Testament priests; we are being built up a spiritual house as we offer spiritual sacrifices pleasing to God (1 Peter 2:5).
From today, make a special commitment to a daily life of prayers. No matter what happens, prayers must not be reduced but increased (Acts 6:4). Gists can reduce. Social media engagement can go down. Sleep, food etc can reduce. But not prayer. This is a time to go deeper, wider, higher and faster in prayers. And the way to do that is daily. Make daily investments of prayers into your future today. You will reap what you sow (Galatians 6:7-8). Amen!
