TOPIC: How to Get Divine Attention
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Exodus 3:1-7
3 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.
2 And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.
4 And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
5 And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.
6 Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.
7 And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;
The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous and His ears are open to their cry.

MFM Daily Devotional 29 December 2023 MESSAGE
Every child of God will enjoy divine attention if he aligns himself to the kingdom of God and its purposes. The truth is that if you are kingdom-focussed and God’s purposes are represented in your desire, passion and pursuit, His attention will be on you.
The Bible says that the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous and His ears are ever open to their cry. God’s word also says that the eyes of the Lord run to and fro the world to show Himself mighty on behalf of those who love Him. That is divine attention.
The following are some of the important steps you should take to get divine attention:
First, you must be born again. New birth is the greatest key to getting divine attention. When you give your life to Christ and become God’s child and a citizen of heaven. His attention will always be on you.
Second, you must die to self and be His kingdom builder. Those who are sold out to God and are committed to the promotion of His kingdom agenda or projects are candidates of His divine attention. Such people are dead to self and have given their all to Christ. Hence, they become the apple of His eye and object of His love and attention.
Third, you must be righteous. Bible characters who lived consistently righteous lifestyle, despite the challenges they had, enjoyed divine attention throughout their lives: Job, Daniel, David and the apostles. If you want to enjoy divine attention, be righteous.
Fourth, you must demonstrate uncommon faith. Believers who consistently serve God with unwavering faith get His attention. He rewards those who diligently and faithfully serve Him with His love and attention.
He keeps His eyes on such believers perpetually, Fifth, you can win divine attention by engaging in purposeful and sustained fasting and prayer. When there was a plot to exterminate Queen Esther and the entire Jewish population, fasting and prayer was the key that got the Jews divine attention and deliverance. Beloved. I pray that you will be a candidate of divine intervention from today, in the name of Jesus.
