TOPIC- DIVINE ENCOUNTER FOR A LIFT AND SHIFT
(FROM THE JANUARY 2019 EDITION OF THE SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)
SCRIPTURE: And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. Genesis 32:28.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It takes an encounter to count in your generation; and it takes an encounter to counter the agenda of the devil around your life.
It has been established that Divine possibility is a function of human responsibility. When man meets God’s requirements, he sees a breakthrough in life. One reason why many people remain at the same spot is refusal or failure to meet the demands for lift and shift in life.
Previously, we saw four demands for supernatural lift and shift as desperation, supplication, revelation and sensitivity. Today, we shall see yet another demand for a lift and shift in life, and that is DIVINE ENCOUNTER.
Divine Encounter is a destiny up-lifter. Divine encounter is a doorway to life’s turnaround. When God meets you, things change. Abraham encountered God and his life changed (Genesis 12:1-5). It takes an encounter to count in your generation; and it takes an encounter to counter the agenda of the devil around your life. One encounter changed the destiny of Jacob from being Jacob, a person to becoming Israel, a nation (Genesis 32:28); one encounter with God lifted Moses (Exodus 3:1-12).
Beloved, we are in the season of Divine encounter and God shall encounter you in Jesus’ Name.
Now, how do you get a Divine Encounter?
i. Desire it (Psalm 63:1-2).
You can desire an encounter. Ask God to do something new in your life.
ii. Reposition your life for Divine encounter. (Revelation 1:10). John was in the spirit and he had an encounter with the Lord.
Beloved, I prophesy the grace to be in the spirit in order to experience Divine encounter in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: It takes an encounter to count in your generation; and it takes an encounter to counter the agenda of the devil around your life.
1. Ask God for an encounter that will change your level.
2. Make up your mind to continue to remain in the spirit.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You visit me; I ask for the grace to be in the spirit always in order to have a life-changing encounter with You, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
