GETTING CONNECTED TO THE RIGHT PLACE

We have heard of many natural disasters breaking through the peace and harmony of man of recent. Did anyone remember Hurricane Rita that broke out across the southern coasts of USA, hitting some of the coaster cities of Texas and Louisiana States and a large part of the Bahamas? That was in September of 2005. When the Hurricane Rita landed on the ground of those coaster cities, ravaging the land and clearing all the houses and buildings along its paths, precisely on 24th September, 2005, my wife and I witnessed it.

We were in Houston, Texas at the time for some foreign ministrations and we were among those massive crowd of people evacuating from Houston to the city of Dallas. The only regret I had since then was that, when we were being rushed out of the house we were hosted, I was only able to take our passports and other traveling documents and few clothes as we were made to hurry out of Missouri City in Houston. We forgot to take along with us our photo or video camera. We would have recorded how the whole thing looked like the exodus of Israelites from Egypt.

A servant of God, some years ago, in one of the cities somewhere in the Middle East, had been told by God to evacuate his city as a great natural disaster fell on the whole land. It was a sudden draught. Everything became dry and there was no rain. the farms dried up and there was no food. The United Nations Food Bank failed to respond to the cry of the people, the World Food Aid also were attending to many other places and had overlooked the city of this Servant of God. Food and water had failed.
Over one of the nights, this old man heard God speaking to his ears to leave the city and walk away to a particular place he would describe to him. the man woke up in the morning and left the city, walking away from the city on foot till he came to the base of a mountain far away from the city.

Amazingly, he saw a small river flowing down from the side of the high mountain. Very close to the spring, on the side of the mountain was a small cool shelter which had a flat rock overshadowing it. As he saw these amazing sights, he heard another voice again, telling him: “this is where I have prepared for you to stay for now”. He was astounded. He looked at the shelter of rock and saw a flat stone on the corner, a natural bed. Amazing. He sat down to assimilate all these fantastic sceneries.

Then, he went up and walked into the spring of water and deeper his hand into fresh cold water flowing down from inside a crack of the mountain. He drank to his fullest and then, soak his dehydrated body in the cold pool of water. He stayed in the pool for more than 20 minutes before something else caught his attention: He began to see a flock of black birds, about twenty or thirty of them, flapping their wings and landing at his shelter; on their long sharp beaks were some big white stuff he could not understand as he looked at them from inside the pool of water. Then, about nine or ten of them were carrying something else in their beaks: some brown cube-shaped stuff.

They dropped the stuffs on the stony bed and began to play around the place: making different types of sweet sounds and hopping about the place.

The completely astonished man of God came out of the pool, his eyes fixed on these strange birds. As he moved closer to them, he saw they were playful with him. He moved to the stuffs they had dropped. A closer look baffled him the more. BREAD AND ROASTED MEAT. Yeh! It dawned on him that the Lord had directed him to where He would feed him while the famine lasted. Are you familiar with that story?

1 Kings 17:5-6 KJV
[5] So he went and did according unto the word of the Lord : for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.
[6] And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.
At one of the December Drama Minsters’ Power Night, one of the Grace the Lord said we should pray for was Abundant Grace for Divine Directions:

ABILITY TO BE WHERE THE LORD WANT US TO BE AT THE TIME HE WANTS US TO BE THERE.
NOT AN HOUR BEFORE NOT AN HOUR AFTER.
Divine ability to make the right contact and connections to the right people, to sustain you and your ministry in the times that we are.
WHEN YOU ARE CONNECTED TO THE RIGHT PLACE, YOU WILL NOT FEEL THE HEAT AND FLAMES OTHERS ARE FEELING.
WHEN YOU ARE CONNECTED TO THE RIGHT PLACE, YOU WILL NOT BE PARTAKER WITH GENERAL TROUBLES AND TRAVAILS.
THIS WAS WHAT ELIJAH DID.

Elijah did according to the word of the Lord, so he experienced Divine Connections:
1 Kings 17:5-6 KJV
[5] So he went and did according unto the word of the Lord : for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.
[6] And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.

When you are connected to the Right Place;
When you are where the Lord wants you to be at the proper time He wants you to be there, no procrastination, no lingering, no doubting;
You will walk into Miracles, Divine Connections and Provisions from time to time.

May the Lord train our ears to hear His instructions and directions, and may the Lord strengthen our heart to obey all of His Instructions all the time.
In Genesis 22, when the Lord commanded Abraham to go and sacrifice his Son; He specifically told him to go to the land of Moriah to the mountain that He would show him. And ABRAHAM went to the land of Moriah, he got there the third day and the Lord showed him the Mountain He wanted him to do the sacrifice. ABRAHAM went up to the mountain. That was where he heard the Lord’s voices. That was where the Angel spoke with him. That was where the Lord renewed His covenant with him. And that was where he passed the test and the Lord showed him a substitute ram caught in a ticket prepared for the sacrifice.

NOW THINK OF THIS:
Then, if ABRAHAM had gone to another mountain apart from the exact place the Lord showed him, he would not have heard from God, because God had gone to where He told him to wait for him.

If he had gone the wrong way, he would miss the Substitute Ram for the Alternative Offering which the Lord had prepared ahead of his coming to the mountain.

ABRAHAM GOT ALL THOSE BLESSINGS OF A RENEWED COVENANT, BECAUSE HE WAS AT THE RIGHT PLACE.

LIKEWISE YOU, IF YOU DO ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD THAT HE WILL COMMAND YOU FROM TIME TO TIME, YOU WILL ENJOY DIVINE DIRECTIONS, AND DIVINE CONNECTIONS CONNECTING YOU TO THE RIGHT DIVERSE MIRACLES.

Jesus loves you, accept Him today, tomorrow might be too late.
