When troubles come, as indeed they will, it is in prayer that we “get above” them and assert our sovereignty in the power of the risen Lord.
We use a familiar phrase which is very suggestive. We say, “Under the circumstances….” But why should we be UNDER them? Why shouldn’t we be ABOVE them? Why slaves and not masters? It is through prayer that we get our circumstances beneath our feet.
See Psalm 91:13; Luke 10:19; 1 Corinthians 9:27
