DELEGATION - THE PRAYER CONNECTION

March 26:2019

Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.
Genesis 2:15 (NKJV)

`

Scriptures have shown us that God operates by divine principles which are based on His word.  His principle that applies in the area of prayer is the principle of delegation. Our scripture verse reveals that God has given mankind the responsibility of safeguarding and managing the earth and its resources. He delegated this authority to Adam before the fall and He reinstated it to believers after He redeemed mankind from his fallen state through the sacrifice on the cross (Genesis 1:26; Matthew 28:18-19).

In management, delegation is about assigning to someone else the responsibility for outcomes (results) along with the authority to do what is needed to produce the desired results. It is about entrusting someone else to do specific activities because the person is qualified to do the job. God, the greatest leader, has entrusted us with responsibilities in our different fields of endeavour, and so, He trusts and expects us, His children, to fulfil the assignments He has given to us.

You see, when God delegates responsibility, He respects His delegation and to a large extent won’t interfere with the responsibilities of His delegated authorities until permitted or invited to do so.  He is the God of integrity. We saw earlier that He has reinstated all authority on earth to believers, which means that He cannot intervene in our affairs without our permission and cooperation. The principal way we give God permission to intervene in our situations is through prayer – giving God earthly permission to manifest His will on the earth and in our lives.

Beloved, as you embark on your daily endeavours, remember that there are a lot of things that are not known to your mind, but are known to God. Man has limited physical sight, but everything is uncovered in the sight of God – past, present and future. He wants to orchestrate people, things and situations to work in your favour. Don’t carry on in life alone; God wants to help you. Get His help by seeking His face every day. Pray in your understanding and pray in tongues.  God will surely make a way for you.
