TOPIC: HOW DIVINE ENCOUNTER GIVE VISION
Scripture: Genesis 15: 5. And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter !
Previously, we consider encounters as the pathway to the blessing. Today, We shall be looking at how encounter gives vision.
How did encounter bring Abraham vision?
Our anchor scripture reveals an encounter that happened between God and Abraham. In this encounter, we saw God bringing Abraham to the point of catching a vision:
Genesis 15: 5. And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
God has to help Abraham see a promised future in his mind’s eye! By bringing him out of his house and ask him to look towards the sky and see if he could number the stars.
At the end of this encounter Abraham had enough vision never to doubt God again because what you can see you don’t doubt.
Why did God bring Abraham to the point of capturing a picture from the star?
1. To solidify his conviction
2. To give a picture for living
3. To change his mind set and give him better way of thinking because God answers your thoughts.
Now, your thought is a product of the pictures your mind have been able to capture over time. Mathematically, I can say( PxT=Y), where P is picture, T is time and Y is thought.
So, therefore, give attention to what gives you pictures over a period of time because they determine the results of your life.
Do you know that what you don’t picture you can’t capture. What you can not see you can not seize. What you don’t visualize you don’t actualize what you don’t perceive you can’t receive.
Beloved, every encounter should give you a better vision for life and destinies.
So any time we had encounter with God expect a vision to be born. We can have our encounter through the following:
1. Intimacy with God on the altar of prayer! As you pray expect encounters.
2. Through the Prophetic word:
1 Timothy 1: 18. This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;
When prophecy is given to you, it is to paint a picture of what God is about to do. If you get this picture, what to do is to war with it until it find literal expression in your life.
3. Through the written word:
The scripture could give us the vision for life as we encounter God through the pages of the scriptures! It is the only authentic source of unfailing picture.
Even your medical report might be showing facts based on science analysis. But the word of God superced laboratory results. Let the word give you the right picture for life, that is where correct vision is born.
Isaiah 1: 1. The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. –
Isaiah saw the word of God in a picture format and it was called vision! You too can see a picture of what God is about to do in this year base on the scripture and the prohecy that has gone ahead of you.
How to get pictures from the word?
It takes meditation upon the word! Deep pondering on the word to catch the pictures from the letter of the word:
Joshua 1: 8. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
In conclusion, God will respond to the pictures of your mind (vision)!
That is what your mind has been able to capture over time that has form thought. And the place to get this picture is from prayer altar, the word of God and the prohecy over your head.
Remember this; Heaven is real and hell is real! Don’t joke with your eternal soul. Give your heart to Jesus today.
