MEMORISE : Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest
believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? JOHN 11 : 40.
READ : MATTHEW 15 : 22 – 28.
22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto
him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is
grievously vexed with a devil.
23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him,
saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.
24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house
25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to
cast it to dogs.
27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their
28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto
thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

If you know how to move God, there will never be anything that you will not be
able to get done on earth. This is the main reason why it is necessary for every
one of us to get closer to God. Apostle Paul in Philippians 3 : 10 said :
“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his
sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;”
He craved to know more of God despite the current depth of his knowledge. Just
like Paul, every one of us needs to continue in our thirst for more of Him. If you
want God to always move in your life and situation, there are a few things you
can do. If these things are not done, you may be compelled to wait longer than
expected before miracles can be activated in your life. In Genesis 18 : 1 – 5,
Abraham had a divine visitation. Some strangers came close to his tent but they
did not seek to go inside, even though they were on assignment to bless and
transform his life forever. Thank God Abraham was sensitive enough to realise he
must do something in order to get something. Abraham showed good hospitality to
the visitors. He never knew that by so doing, he was already preparing heaven to
move on his behalf. This is why those who give good offerings only once in a while
are only denying themselves the miracles that God has promised them. That you
gave quality praise yesterday is not enough to deny God praise today. You must
constantly do things that will activate the miracles that God has prepared for you.
In the life of a child of God, there are two possible kinds of divine encounter:
going to God to meet with Him and God Himself coming on a visit. Either of these
encounters has the potential of activating a miracle. When a person meets with
God, his life cannot remain the same. The problems of yester years vanish and the
mourning of yesterday is turned to laughter. However, when God Himself comes
visiting, the miracles received are always record-breaking. I believe there is a
reader of this devotional, who will receive a visit from God in Jesus’ Name. When
God comes visiting, He brings lots of miracles, signs and wonders to the visited.
Usually, such visits are activated when there is something critical that needs to
be done in the life of the visited. Abraham was visited by God at the time when the
hope of having a child of covenant was lost. Is that what your case looks like
today? Have you waited all these years and your name has become a synonym for
barrenness? Have you been tagged as that woman who has no husband or that man
without a job? Today, God will visit you. Every pending promise will be fulfilled.
Every secret tear will be wiped away. Your hope is being restored right now in
Jesus’ Name. I see all your trials becoming a great testimony.
PRAYER POINT :
Father, let me receive an uncommon visit from you that will turn my life around.
