TOPIC: Secret of Divine Encounter
TODAY: Tuesday 25 April, 2017
SCRIPTURE: And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod. And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it. Exodus 4:2-3.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God cannot do great things in the life of a person who is full of his own abilities.
One of the secrets of impactful existence is Divine encounter. Divine encounter makes a person’s life to count. Without Divine encounter in a person’s life, it is difficult for him/her to become great in life. Divine encounter counters every work of the enemy in a person’s life.
Now, what are the keys to experiencing Divine encounter?
1. Willingness to surrender personal strength or ability.
God cannot do great things in the life of a person who is full of his/her own abilities. The angel of the LORD touched Jacob’s thigh (hamstring muscle) which is one of the most powerful muscles in the body and weakened him. When God saw his willingness to surrender his personal strength, God gave him an encounter.
2. Willingness to surrender personal steps and strategies.
Moses tried at first to deliver the children of Israel by using physical energy but he failed until he encountered God and God gave him a change of strategy.
Beloved, if you are going to encounter God, you must allow Heaven to give you strategies and steps. If you are ready for God to change your approaches and steps, then you are ready for Divine Encounter.
Remember this: God cannot do great things in the life of a person who is full of his/her own abilities.
1. Go through the study again.
2. Surrender your strength, skills, qualification, etc. and allow God to have His way in your life.
