The Lord’s ways are extremely clever: “The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes.” The Lord is willing to do this by acquiescing to our requests. I have seen this phenomena occur as a result of daily intersessions before the Lord. By this I mean the Lord impressed me to ask for the hearts of powerful people to be turned and cause a certain action to happen. In the next couple of days my family was amazed to see and hear that the very action occurred!
Of course all of this was done in secret and will remain so, partly because of our relationship with God. This is so precious, because if it becomes public it can literally disappear. But on the other side of the spectrum, once your eyes open to the reality and the power of the invisible kingdom that is moved by prayer, it opens the whole spectrum of possibilities that can occur in your life.
Now I want to take you deeper into God‘s ability and willingness to move large masses of a population into a certain direction. We see that this phenomenon occurred in the book of Acts, where the only action was 120 people praying in an upper room: “Now when this was noised abroad, a multitude came together.” This multitude was 3,000 people ~ and there was no Internet, newspaper, nor town crier!
It was the invisible kingdom in action. God tells us how detailed and all-encompassing this invisible kingdom is in Psalms, the 33rdchapter: “From high in the skies God looks around, He sees all Adam’s brood. From where He sits He overlooks all us earth-dwellers. He has shaped each person in turn; now He watches everything we do.”
Literally God is saying here, that from Heaven He can shape the heart of every man on earth. God answers our prayers when they are in alignment with the will of heaven. Let me clarify for you that the dynamic that I just described is completely invisible and is based on the structure of faith. Without faith there is literally no substance in what I just said. With faith generated in the truly pure human spirit, it is amazing what will occur in the earth today. God can completely move the heart of America!
For example, God is using pop music to retune the hearts of young people. Could the Disneyland amusement park actually be designed as a spiritual prayer park, an inspirational center? No wonder it’s called the happiest place on earth! Oh, but we haven’t even got to the wonders of Yosemite and the Grand Canyon. Wow! What an amazing plan God has. We just have to see it through the eyes of faith.
Of course, to experience the places I mentioned require you to visit them. But wait, it even gets more special. Have you taken time to really look at what He’s doing in your family, home, workplace, church, and everything you are involved in? Just take the time to open up your senses, suck it all in, watch it all, and see His hand move your heart to His pleasure ~ His ability to take you into the midst of His perfect plan for your life. You will suddenly discover the Lord’s Prayer coming to pass every day, His will being done ~ that you are experiencing heaven on earth!
