How useful is it to gather moments before a new calendar year? How can I really secure divine help for the future? Many people have lost faith in the concept of watch night service because they do not receive answers.
There are many people who subscribe to prophecy but are very lazy. Prophecy does not work for a lazy man. For instance, when God spoke to Moses, Moses was patient to get more instructions and divine strategies and he acted on them. Prophecies always come with instructions. If it is something you need to do, there will be clear instructions.
What is the formula to secure divine help? One factor is purpose. Nothing secures divine help like purpose! As simple as it may sound, this is everything. Some unbelievers seem to have supernatural abilities and live with ease compared to believers. For instance, Pharaoh and Nebuchadnezzar had dreams of what will happen in the future.
The moment your life is aligned with purpose, no matter who you are, you’ll enjoy the help of God. Cyrus, the pagan king was an example. In Isaiah 45, God assured Cyrus that he will help him. This was because Cyrus was aligned with his will.
In 2 Chronicles 36:22-23, we understand why Cyrus enjoyed the mercies of God. Cyrus’ heart was stirred and he freed the children of Israel to go build God a temple for God.
When you come to a point in life, where the spirit of God can no longer stir you, you’re out of purpose. When Cyrus aligned with God’s will, God made sure he could not be stopped. It should not be all about your plan; purpose is the principle of divine help.
