He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
By David Wilkerson
The Spirit has been making it clear to me that all my praying is totally in vain unless I pray in faith. I can weep, fast, intercede, agonize and travail in prayer, yet make no impact with the Lord at all — unless I am doing it all with simple, childlike faith.
The Word says, “Let not that man [the doubter] suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord” (James 1:7).
The Lord commands us to trust Him. Yet, often we have so little confidence in Him, so little faith in His willingness and desire to answer our heart-cry. When we get to heaven, we will be amazed to discover all the blessings, peace and power we had at our disposal but did not appropriate because of our weak faith.
I challenge you to increase your faith. Ask the Lord to flood your soul with confidence in His willingness to over-answer your sincere prayers.
Do you want an increase in faith? When you go to prayer again, use the following Scriptures to reason with the Lord. He will not deny His own Word.
“He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler” (Psalm 91:4).
Hold on by faith! He will answer you.
