Divine encounter is supposed to be either an open door that ushers you into a realm or brings you to somewhere that makes things begin to happen for you. The physical things that happen to us in the place of encounter are the least of the operations of God. If you don’t give it a thought and go back to it, it will slip away! Paul did not remain at his place of encounter; he moved on from there and went on to become an apostle. (Acts 13:2)
When people get into challenges, they begin to look for the familiar – what had worked before! There is more to your life and destiny than what you have seen and heard. No matter who you are, if there is no personal identification with an anointed: identifying with their pain and burden, you have drawn a line to how well your destiny will happen. You must strive to add your labour and sweat to that of an anointed.
Don’t be part of the people in a congregation that are not known by name. These people that live in the peripheral, always don’t go on to fulfill destiny for their lives. Don’t be a face in the crowd; do not be in the general zone. Don’t be lost in the crowd. Don’t stop your work in Church till you get to the point that you become a direct yoke-fellow of the apostle.
There are some general reasons why women don’t labour with apostles. Notwithstanding in every major move of God, women have played major roles. Women are not to use domestic duties to limit themselves from serving the anointed. When you allow gender to limit you after an encounter, you will find yourself coming back to the point of encounter. Move from positional service, to personal service to God. There is always that dimension of your life that you need to focus on as service to the anointed. The emotional dimension of your life can be affected by your emotions. Your emotions which is always based on how things are around you, altering the way you feel, must not be allowed to alter the way you feel about and around God.
Prayer: Lord, I receive grace to move on from my point of encounter to fulfill my assignment and do the work of my destiny in Jesus name. Amen.
