By Bishop David Oyedepo
Welcome to your regular column. Last week, I told you that your root in the supernatural guarantees you Godâ€™s presence always. This week, I want to teach on how you can connect to the noiseless realm of the miraculous.
A miracle is the answer to all the challenges of life. God canâ€™t intervene in a matter without result. God is not a joker! He always says what He means, and means what He says! He does not speak empty words! Not every place is the place; there are chosen places. So, God has appointed and chosen places. Godâ€™s Word says: “Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own…neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more…” (II Samuel 7:10). That appointed place is the place of establishment of destiny.
Godâ€™s Word says: “The preparations of the heart in manâ€™s, and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord.” (Proverbs 16:1). It is the preparation of your heart that connects you with divine intervention. That woman with the issue of blood said within her heart: “If I may but touch the hem of His garment, I shall be made whole.” (Matthew 9:21). Another woman was Hannah. She prayed, her mouth moved but her words were not heard (I Samuel 1:9-13). She said: â€œI was pouring my soul unto God.â€ They connected to the noiseless realm of the miraculous in their hearts for their miracles! Besides, they were at their divinely appointed places for their miracles!
The noiseless realm of the miraculous is triggered by the goings-on in your heart. God still has appointed places. There are places divinely appointed for every personâ€™s breakthrough. Many would have died several times, but are still alive and blazing the trail, just because they found themselves in Godâ€™s appointed place, where the wicked have no power to afflict them. You cannot be afflicted, disappointed, and humiliated in your appointed place, because your appointed place is your place of destiny.
While operating in the supernatural, itâ€™s important to know that God has places set apart, where His miracle river flows. The Bible gives us an instance of one of such places called the pool of Bethesda. All the sick people gathered there. An angel came once in a while and stirred the water. Whosoever stepped into it first was healed (John 5). God appointed the pool for the healing of the afflicted and for the deliverance of the captives!
If you have been wondering where the answer is, Iâ€™m glad to let you know that the answer is with Christ. There are miracle-emitting places on the earth today, and thank God, the Faith Tabernacle at Canaan Land is one of such divinely appointed places! Itâ€™s one thing to be present in the body; itâ€™s another thing to be present in the Spirit. Itâ€™s one thing to be activity-driven; itâ€™s another thing to be connectivity proven. Itâ€™s one thing to be around; itâ€™s another thing to be in tune. Itâ€™s one thing to be in church; itâ€™s another thing to be in touch.
Just get connected to the appointed place and Godâ€™s appointed blessings will flow into you without sweat. For instance, Isaac was where God told him to stay for one year, connected to the command of God. There, he prospered, waxed strong, became great, and the Philistines envied him (Genesis 28:16-17)! Whatever God tells you to do, be consistent in doing it. Connect to the flow of God. With your renewed connectivity, God will change your story.
Friend, do you want to be connected to the noiseless realm of the miraculous? You must first be connected to God. You get connected to God by confessing your sins and accepting Jesus as the Lord and Saviour of your life and your family. When you are truly connected this way, you gain access to the miraculous. That is what being born again is all about.
You can be connected right now, if you are set, as you say this prayer: “Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I am a sinner. I cannot help myself. Forgive me my sins. Cleanse me with Your precious blood. Deliver me from sin and Satan, to serve the living God. Today, Lord Jesus, I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Thank You Jesus for saving me! Now I know I am born again!”
Bro. Jang Domani from Abuja testified that after reading my message serialized in Sunday Vanguard of April 12, 2009 titled, Actualizing your glorious destiny, he started enjoying diverse turn-arounds in his job. These turn-arounds did not fall on his laps just like that! His obedience to all I said that should be done in that message was what provoked his diverse turn-arounds! Because of the undeniable proof he had through that message, he said he has joined the Winnerâ€™s Chapel in Abuja.
Our ministry is preparing for SHILOH 2009, an annual gathering of the Winnersâ€™ family worldwide, which will take place at Faith Tabernacle, Canaan Land, Idiroko Road, Ota from December 8-12, 2009. At this event entitled, Hour of restoration, many destinies will be raised to higher levels! Be there!
Every exploit in life is a product of knowledge. For further reading, you can get my booksâ€”Operating in the supernatural, Releasing the supernatural and Walking in the miraculous.
