TOPIC: ENCOUNTERS – PATHWAY TO THE BLESSING
Scripture: Exodus 3: 3. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 4. 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.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! We have examined so far, salvation, obedience, principles and covenants as pathway to the blessing. One more pathway to the blessing is the pathway of divine encounters!
What is Encounter?
Encounter is a supernatural experience that brings reality to us. Encounters bring conviction!
No man doubt what he can see or hear. Infact many still doubt the reality of God today because their lives lack encounters:
1 John 1: 1. That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
Encounters are powerful avenues for receiving the blessing! This is because no encounter leaves you the same way it met you.
Encounter could come through hearing the word of God, it could be through dreams, trance or angelic encounter. To tell you how important encounter is, the devil has also given encounter to so many personw who wake up to do some abnormal things.
However, we must be very careful about encounters because many have been deceived by their encounter with demonic being that present itself as an angel of God. The rule therefore is every encounter must be subjected to scriptural scrutiny for relevance and interpretation.
How does encounter become a pathway to the blessing?
1. It is encounter that delivers your assignment!
Exodus 3: 3. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 4. 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.
Moses was a shepherd taking care of his father in-law’s flocks when he had his own encounter!
That same day his assignment changed from leading flocks to leading human. That same day, Moses the wanderers became Moses the wonder!
Beloved, you are not meant to do everything everybody is doing! Rather there is an assignment for your life! It is your assignment that delivers your consignment. Your greatness is hidden in your assignment. If the world must mind you then you must mind your assignment.
Your strength, riches and honour are inherent in your assignment. Your assignment means where Divinity has assigned for you on earth and it can only be discovered in the place of encounter.
2. Your Encounter is what births vision! Vision for living is the unveiling of God’s purpose for man on earth! And it is easy to catch it in the place of encounter!
Your vision for life determines if you will be blessed or not! No man becomes richer than his vision. How wealthy you turn out to be is tied to the discovery and the pursuit of your vision.
How do you get Divine encounter?
1. Hunger and thirst for the living God;
*Psalm 42: 1. As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. 2. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
Most encounters in the scriptures are direct response to the cry and yearning of a soul that is longing and thirsty after God.
Remember this; Heaven is real and hell is real! The decision to spend eternity with God is yours to make, make hay while the sun shines!
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Father take me to the place of encounter with you in the name of Jesus.
