CHEERFUL COVENANT DEVOTIONAL.
DATE: MONDAY, 13TH JULY 2020.
WORD FOR THOUGHT: INTIMACY WITH GOD BIRTH RESULT.
TOPIC: THE POWER OF INTIMACY.
TEXT: DANIEL 11:32 He shall flatter those who violate the covenant, but the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action. (ESV).
Knowing God deeply is a very important aspect of our walk with God. It is an error to say you know God and yet have no intimacy with Him. Intimacy with God is far beyond playing religion. We have seen church people and yet they do not know the God they claim to be worshiping.
Intimacy is the key for a remarkable exploit. The miracle that mose did at the red sea was because of the intimacy he had with God. For forty days he was on the mount of intimacy, alone with God. You too can record a remarkable exploit in your generation by coming into intimacy with God
The more intimate you become, with God, the more acquitted He becomes in manifesting himself in you.
Intimacy with God brings exchange of weakness to strength. At the place of intimacy with the divinity weakness dies, fear vanished as vapour, you conquer the hunger for sin.
Intimacy with divinity powers you against principalities. Lasting victory comes as a result of intimacy with God.
David was able to defeat the principality called Goliath, the champion of Gath. He ridiculed the armies of Isreal and shouted them into hiding for forty days. Beloved lack of intimacy with God will generate fear mockery and shame, while intimacy with God propels the manifestation of the power of God in you.
The apostles were powered to heal the sick, raised the dead and manifested signs and wonders through the instrumentality of their intimacy with the Holy Spirit. Willful submission to the Holy spirit through having an unwavering intimacy with Him is the foundation for doing exploit. He accurately powers you in doing the unimaginable and becoming who you were divinely created to be.
Intimacy with God is the force that brings about impregnation of divine visions and the realization of divine mandate here on earth for the fulfilment of destiny. At this place of intimacy, God speaks expressly to you in clarity of his will concerning your destiny. People go through hurdles of life because they do lack clarity of their purpose in life. I have never seen anyone who becomes the will of God for his/her life; I mean what God wants you to do here without firstly discovering and unravelling God’s ultimate plan.
Beloved, the truth hidden from you today must definitely give birth to errors in your life tomorrow.
The first thing God has called us to as believers is to have intimacy with Him. Intimacy is the result of entering into fellowship with God. It must come through brokenness. How broken you are reveals the degree of desperation in your heart. If you desire it you will have it.
# LORD JESUS IGNITE THE FIRE OF INTIMACY WITH YOU IN ME.
# I RECEIVE GRACE TO GO THROUGH THE PROCESS.
#BY THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD, I RECEIVE VISIONS AND SOLUTION TO SOLVE THE PUZZLES IN MY LIFE AND THAT OF MY GENERATION.
# I RECEIVE GRACE AND MERCY TO GO THROUGH TODAY IJN, AMEN.
