THE POWER OF REVELATION November 27 Thursday
”And God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water” Gen.21:19
We live in very interesting times. They are as interesting as they are challenging. Therefore, if we must win today with the rate of evil pervading all over the society, then we must rush for light. It must be our passion, it is not something we will handle casually because if you don’t run towards light, you will be stranded and that is not the will of God for your life. It is not His plan that you should live a stranded life. Often times, the reason Christians run into problems is because they don’t have the light. Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”. He did not say it is because of the devil or because of satanic activities but because of lack of knowledge. When you don’t know, you will be a cheap victim in the hands of the devil.
In Isaiah 5:13, 14, the Lord said, ”Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure:…”
Did you see that? They have gone into captivity because they don’t have knowledge. In other words the bondage continues as long as there is no light. So the bondage in your life continues as long as you have no knowledge. As long as one walks in ignorance, there is no way you can navigate your way through life. In Genesis 21:14-20, the bible tells the story of Hagar and her son, Ishmael whose water supply was exhausted in the wilderness and they were about to die because of thirst. The bible says in verse 19, ‘and God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water” Now, the well was there all the while but she did not see it, sometimes, God will need to open your eyes to see opportunities around you.
My prayer for you is that God will open your eyes to see the opportunities around you. God will open your eyes to see the well of water so you do not die of thirst. God will open your eyes to see the hidden riches in secret places in Jesus’ name.
