October 2 - Prayer That Changes Things pt 4

Scripture For Today:


2 Kings 6:17

“And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”

Prayer That Changes Things pt 4

When I was first born again….I could ask my pastor to pray for me or other people of faith…and receive my healing or whatever it was I was needing…but there came a time when those prayers did not work anymore…which signaled it was time for me to grow up spiritually and begin praying for myself.  Our families are the same way…you cannot expect momma to pray for you and you have been saved 20 years…you cannot continue to pray for you kids and they have been grown and on their own for 20 years…you CAN and SHOULD pray for them….I’m not saying don’t do that…but what I am saying is there comes a time when they will have to stand on their own two feet, spiritually speaking!  Amen!  Just like in the natural…there comes a time when a baby will begin to walk on its own….you want it to happen…if a 15 year old is still trying to crawl around the house and refusing to walk…you would say something is wrong…amen!  

Now, when baby first starts to take its first steps…it will fall down and you should be right there to catch it and make sure it is not hurt…it will fall down…it will bump into things…it will wobble all over the place…but after just a few days…it realizes how to get things to operate together – and then it is off to the races! Amen!

It is the same way spiritually…when you first find yourself in the situation where the prayers of others are not working like they used to…that is your key that the Lord is telling you it is time for YOU to take authority over this situation and learn to fend for yourself a little bit…you will fall, bump into things…get bruised a little bit here and there…but when you come out on top…and you will with Jesus on your side…there will quickly come a “learning” that NOW – the devil cannot operate in your life in that area anymore!!!  Then it is off to the races as far as you learning how to operate in your faith is concerned!  Amen!  You will become a Spiritual Track Star!  Amen!  SO – having done all to stand (in God’s armor and His Power, His Might and His Authority) – STAND!

“How long do I have to stand, brother Bob?”  FOREVER!  “Whaaaat?  Forever?”  YES – the Word of God is forever, isn’t it?  When you finally make the decision that no matter what – you are not giving up and you are not giving in…you are going to stand until you get your breakthrough or not get it…but you will not back down…when your faith reaches that point of maturity…you will find you do not have to stand very long…amen!

But if you are just going to “try” to stand…or you are going to “try” tithing…or you are going to “try” seed time and harvest, sowing and reaping…or you  are going to “try” fasting….it will never work…

So, make the decision and just DO IT!  I sound like a Nike commercial…but that is where they got it from…make the decision – and DO IT!  And you will WIN every time.

Bob Thibodeau

Pastor Robert Thibodeau has been in online ministry since starting his own podcast in mid-2009. Within about six months, he was offered a slot on nationwide Christian AM radio. His broadcast was heard in four major markets for one year.

He then started what today is called, "Evangelism Radio" and went live 24/7 beginning on October 4, 2010 and continues to this day. Now with over 50 broadcasters submitting programming on a weekly basis, Evangelism Radio has listeners in over 160 nations and all 50 states. It was also ranked by Shoutcast.com as #1 in the world in the Christian Talk genre on many occasions.

In late 2017, Pastor Bob began an interview style podcast called "The Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast." On this podcast, Pastor Bob interviews Christians from various walks of life on how they use their Faith to achieve success. Authors, recording artists, business CEO's, non-profit leaders and pastors and ministers frequent the show and provide amazing insight to build your faith. In only 3 years time, The KCR Podcast has published almost 900 episodes and Pastor Bob conducted over 700 interviews!

In early 2018, in response to the lack of any Christian themed podcast hosting platform in the market place, Pastor Bob coordinated with the iconic Mark Asquith and his team, with the result being "FaithCasters.net." A "Christian podcast hosting and marketing company created by Christians for Christians."

Due to the immense success Pastor Bob has achieved in the online ministry world, he is often asked by others "How to start a podcast." Not wanting to refer Christian brothers and sisters back into the world for help in establishing a Christian themed podcast, he started to develop the "Podcast-Training" platform offered through our ministry. He conducts training on a weekly basis to assist others in the development of their own personal podcast as well as ministry related podcasts that can air on Evangelism Radio.

Now, he has placed all of this information under one website location, "Podcasters for Christ." This makes it easier for other Christians to find the services they need in one spot rather than having to visit several different websites.
