Memorise: “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (Jn 10:10)
Read: Genesis 18:1- 2
|There are two kinds of divine encounter: when someone meets with God and when God Himself comes visiting. The latter offers greater benefits for the visited.
When God visits an individual, that fellow cannot remain the same. Usually, such divine visits are attracted during critical periods in the life of the fellow visited.
According to our reading, God visited Abraham when the hope of becoming a father was lost.
After 25 years of waiting, God’s promise to him looked like a fairy tale. Has God promised you something and it seems He might have forgotten it? The Lord has not forgotten you.
He will visit you and every pending promise He has made will be fulfilled in Jesus’ Name.
“To whom God would make known what is the richest of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Col 1:27).
When God visits you, lost hope will be restored. Have you lost hope of making it in life, finding a marriage partner, finding a good job, etc.?
Your hope is being restored now. In Genesis 19:1, destruction was imminent on the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Their residents were about to be roasted alive by a landmark inferno that no national fire service could put out.
Just before the fiery judgement, Lot had visitors from the Heavenly planet and he and his immediate family were rescued.
His destruction had turned into a testimony! Every destructive plot against you and your family shall become a testimony.
The One visiting is the One who promised in John 10:10 that His visit delivers life, yes, abundant life. His visit makes the great greater, and turns curses into blessings. All you need is just a visit!
In 1 Kings 17:8-16, a widow was facing her worst nightmare: she had a meal left for herself and her son. Death was mockingly starring at her.
Then came a visitor sent by God.He made her an offer and she accepted it. Death was disappointed and put to shame. The woman lived better than she ever lived.
This season, the Lord will visit you. Prepare for His visit. Get rid of every sin in your life. Obey Him completely. Be prayerful and sensitive to His call.
You will experience a divine encounter that will fill your container of joy.
