SCRIPTURE: And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. Genesis 32:24
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: There is no possibility without responsibility; there is no success without secrets.
It has been confirmed that God is a Lifter and Shifter of human lives and destinies (Romans 1:17, Proverbs 4:18, 2 Corinthians 3:18); God has lifted me as a person and is still lifting me; and He has shifted us as a church and is still lifting us and would continue to lift us.
However, it is important to know that supernatural lifts and shifts happen for those who meet the demands. There is no possibility without responsibility; there is no success without secrets. There are demands for experiencing lifts and shifts of life. It is only those who meet these demands that experience a lift and shift in life.
Now, the question is, what do we do to experience a lift and shift of our life and destiny to the next level?
i. Desperation (Genesis 32:26)
Desperation breaks existence in stagnation and in the status quo; desperation brings elevation.
ii. Supplication (Genesis 32:26)
Supplication is key to lifting and shifting; desperation leads to supplication and intercession.
This refers to the revelation of the Word. When your word comes, your lift comes (Psalm 105:17-20).
You need sensitivity to Divine timing and signals in order to experience a lift and shift in life. God is not only the God of purpose but also the God of seasons and timing (Ecclesiastes 3:1).
v. Divine Encounter (Genesis 32:27)
Divine encounter is a destiny up-lifter. Divine encounter is a doorway to life’s turnaround. When God meets you, things change.
Beloved, my counsel is, combine desperation, supplication, revelation, sensitivity with divine encounter and you will surely experience drastic lift and shift of life and destiny.
Remember this: There is no possibility without responsibility; there is no success without secrets.
1. Go through today’s message again thoroughly and thoughtfully.
2. Make up your mind to meet the demands of supernatural lift and shift in order to be lifted in life.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the grace for desperation, supplication and diligent study of Your Word. Help me Lord, to be sensitive to divine timing and signals in order to experience a lift and shift in life and destiny, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
