The stage reveals what has been prepared and gets the show going to everyone’s pleasure. Back stage is the place where it all comes together. I am talking about the dynamics of putting up a great presentation before an audience. Walking into an elevator gives you a first class experience without bogging you down with the mechanics of how it works behind the scene. Yet without the backstage mechanics nothing gets done.
The spirit realm is the backstage for spiritual elevation. It all starts in the spirit realm where we attain the victory in the Lord. Prayer, prophecy, the word of God and spiritual gifts are all vital components to the awesome behind the scene situation which positions us for victory. So before you walk on to the stage, make sure you have prepared for victory behind the scene.
SCRIPTURE READING: 1 TIMOTHY 4:14-16
Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all. Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Dear God, I believe you’re working behind the scenes. May I carry the understanding that my place is to prepare for what is coming. Today I give myself entirely to your word, I meditate on it so that my progress may be evident to all in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
