SEEDS OF DESTINY

TOPIC: KEYS TO DIVINE ENCOUNTER
SCRIPTURE: And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. Exodus 3:4
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: There are lives that are tied to your life. When you sink, they sink; when you shine, they shine.
We had established in our previous study that it takes an encounter with God to count in life. An encounter with God adds value to a person’s life.
Abraham was a generational failure that became a generational success, just by one encounter (Genesis 12:1-5). At the age of 75 years, he was still in his father’s house, childless, and with no results, but he had one encounter that turned everything around.
Having seen the necessity of Divine encounter, it is important, therefore, to look at the keys to Divine encounter. What are the keys or secrets to Divine encounter?
1. Passion for God.
When you have passion for God, having encounters with Him is guaranteed in your life (Exodus 3:3).
2. Passion for people (Acts 7:25).
A heart for people is a secret of encounter with God. God gave Moses an encounter because a generation was sinking and Moses had a passion for their deliverance. There are lives that are tied to your life. When you sink, they sink; when you shine, they shine. God shall give you the encounter that will make you profitable to those people in Jesus’ Name.
3. Hatred for oppression.
If you hate seeing people mistreated, manhandled, you can become a candidate for Divine encounter (Exodus 2:11-12).
4. Passion to serve (Exodus 2:16-21).
No one wanted to serve like Moses. He served the daughters of the priest of Midian free of charge with no ulterior motive.
Beloved, the making of meaning is superior to the making of money. If you would love God passionately, love people, hate oppression and serve wholeheartedly, then get ready for an encounter with the Almighty God.
Remember this: There are lives that are tied to your life. When you sink, they sink; when you shine, they shine.
1. Go through the outlined keys to Divine encounter again.
2. Engage these keys and make demands on God for a Divine encounter.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to love You and people passionately, hate oppression and serve my generation according to You will, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
