        (06/01/2000) not breaking the hedge
Hello prayer warriors,

1. Prayer note: not breaking the hedge

[Ecclesiastes 10:8]
He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso
breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.

There is a hedge of protection round about us and I
believe that God protects us. But there are also
dangers all around and as active participants in our
lives, we need to protect that hedge and not break it.

How do we break that hedge?

[Galatians 6:7-8]
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for
whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the
flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the
Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

We need to sow into our lives things of the Spirit,
because of the Spirit, we shall reap everlasting life.
If we sow things of the flesh into our lives, we reap
destruction. I just heard a message on this verse last
week and the speaker emphasized the words: "Do not be

Many times, we deceive ourselves and maybe we think we
can deceive God by going on with some of our ways. But
God is not deceived and neither should we go on
deceiving ourselves. We reap what we sow.

One of the things also about praying for healing is
that we need to walk in the ways of God. I remember
hearing a message about this pastor who visited
another church and made an altar call for people who
need healing. The first night, a woman came out for
healing and God healed her. The next night, the woman
came out for healing again because her sickness has
returned. The pastor prayed for her again and again
she was healed. The third night, she came out for
healing again and the pastor asked an elder in the
local church to bring the woman's husband who was next
to her so that he could talk to the husband. The elder
said that the man was not her husband and the woman
has been living in adultery with this man.

We should not be deceived. God desires to heal us and
to give us abundant life, but we need to walk in it.
I'm not saying that people do not get healed because
they have sinned (there are many reasons, sometimes it
is waiting on God's timing or for other reasons)
. I am
saying that we need to understand the spiritual laws
and not deceive ourselves. Repent of our sins and come
before God and seek His ways. There lies the keys to
abundant and everlasting life.
