Topic: The Power Of Divine Encounter – from Seeds of Destiny Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche “Dunamis International Gospel Centre” | Date: Thursday, 12 July 2018.
SCRIPTURE: After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. Revelation 4:1-2.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It takes an encounter to counter the works of darkness and count on earth.
It has been confirmed throughout scriptures that Divine encounter is behind the making of men and women of relevance on earth. No wonder, the lives of people who are of little or no impact on earth are characterised by lack of Divine encounters. This is why God delights in giving His children Divine encounters so they can avoid inconsequential existence.
From our anchor Scripture, a door was opened unto John and he experienced deep encounters and Divine visitations. When this door opens, there would be strange encounters and Divine visitations; things that people would find difficult to understand would begin to happen. Deep encounters, mysterious revelations and manifestations, open angelic encounters, third heaven encounters, etc. are what we see when God opens the door of Divine encounter.
In addition to that, prayer time and night time would be absolutely filled with Divine visitations and angelic encounters; the spiritual realm becomes real. It is important to know that there is another world apart from this world. There are happenings in the realm of the spirit that are not visible to the physical eyes. Divine encounters make the spiritual realm real.
One encounter can counter the agenda of the enemy. Moses had an encounter and the death sentence that was hanging on his life for forty years was countered. Pharaoh was looking for him to kill but when Moses encountered God, he was no longer killable by Pharaoh. He was the one who eventually killed Pharaoh; Pharaoh pursued him into the Red Sea and that was the end of Pharaoh.
Beloved, it takes an encounter to counter the works of darkness and count on earth.
Ask God passionately to give you an encounter that will transform your life and destiny forever.
Remember this: It takes an encounter to counter the works of darkness and count on earth.
