The Place Was Shaken (2 of 5)
Introduction: We are exploring Acts 4:30-31 with the theme "Shaken." It is a great idea to begin a new season with prayer and fasting, since it sets you on a path to supernatural living for the rest of that season. Prayer is a powerful force that puts the wings of God's supernatural power into our spirit. Isaiah 40:31 says, "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their stamina, even when things go wrong. They can fly over problems like an eagle mounting up with wings. They shall run and not be weary of the journey. They shall walk and not faint" (Damazio). God can help you. God is there for you. God responds to prayer and fasting. God can shake your place!
Powerful prayer with fasting creates the possibility that our "place" will encounter the dynamic power of a fresh touch of the Holy Spirit, releasing something supernatural and wonderful with a new freedom. Our place then becomes a shaken place - a new place.
