The earnest-heartfelt prayers of the righteous, moves heaven. And when heaven moves—hell trembles. The enemy knows he can’t stand up to the power of the Almighty; therefore, his strategy is to come after us. Our challenge is to keep our faith in God.
The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working] (James 5:16b, AMP).
We shouldn’t let hell’s tremors frighten us.
There are times when life can throw us in sudden turmoil. However, we shouldn’t be frightened because our loving Father is monitoring the whole situation. There’s not a move hell can make that heaven doesn’t know about. That should give us all the comfort and assurance we need.
The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry (Psalms 34:15).
God knows how much weight we can take, and when the burden gets too heavy, He will make a move (see Corinthians 10:13). We might not think we can endure, but if the Holy Spirit allows it, His mercy will sustain us if we put our trust in Him. It’s the enemy’s mission to deceive us into believing we’re alone and no one cares. We don’t ever want to sit around and let those depressing thoughts occupy and take root in our minds. Instead, we should run to the Comforter (see John 14:26). Keep in mind, just because we can’t see anything happening, we know by faith there’s always movement in heaven.
I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears (Psalm 34:4).
In John 16:33b it says, In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
God has equipped us to be conquerors (see Ephesians 6:10-18). All we have to do is be obedient to His Word, and let Him fight our battles.
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness (Isaiah 41:10).
When heaven moves, hell trembles!
