MFM Daily Devotional 9 August 2022  MESSAGE

God is the author of turning point in the life of man. We learnt this in the life of Abraham yesterday. Similarly, when the whole world fell into the captivity of satan and sin, God orchestrated a turning point by giving His only begotten Son, Jesus, to die for man’s redemption. A turning point refers to a junction, location or time when change occurs. A turning point could be positive or negative.

But as a child of God whose hope and confidence is in God, may you experience a positive turnaround, in the name of Jesus. A turning point is often birthed by a divine encounter. There are several instances of turning points in the Bible. There was divine turning point when God commanded light to appear and it did (Genesis 1:3).

The miraculous deliverance of Israel from Egypt was a turning point in the history of the Israelites. When a sinner is converted and becomes a saint, it is a turning point encounter. Paul’s conversion on the road to Damascus was a major turning point in his life (Acts 9). When the sick experience divine healing and are made whole, it is divine turning point. The man that Jesus healed at the Pool of Bethesda after 38 years of infirmity (John 5: 5-8) and the demoniac of Gadara who Jesus restored (Mark 5:25-28) are beneficiaries of divine turning point.

There is also turning point when sorrow turns to joy as in the case of Jabez (1 Chronicles 4:9-10), when lack becomes plenty (2 Kings 4: 1-7), when failure becomes success (Luke 5:4-6) and when a “nobody” becomes prominent as in the story of Joseph; and when a destiny is restored and aligned for fulfilment as was the case of Jacob at Peniel. You will agree with me that divine turning point is desirable. I pray that you will experience it today, in the name of Jesus.

Beloved, to qualify for a turning point encounter, you need to do the following: (1) Give your life to Jesus Christ (2) Love, study and live by the word of God (3) Be a worshipper and be prayerful (4) Be obedient to God. Peter obeyed Jesus in John 5:4-6 and the woman of Zarephath obeyed Elijah. (5) Be a sacrificial giver (6) Live a holy lifestyle. (7) Have faith in God.
