Topic: Provoking Positive Change
Bible Reading: Number 13-16
Text: “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” Ephesians 3 :20.
Change is one event that is constant in life. Change denotes movement from one state to another. There are two categories of change, positive and negative. Change in life is constant, certain and inevitable. Sometimes, change in a certain direction can be provoked, prolonged, shortened, averted or delayed.
In Matthew 15 :21 – 28; we are told of how a particular woman experienced positive change. She was a Canaanite woman with a daughter grievously vexed with a devil. She desired a positive change-recovery and wholeness for her daughter. Her expectation was almost dashed until she provoked positive change. From this story, we can learn a few lessons. The first thing to note is that she cried for mercy. She told the Lord how things were with her. She did not pretend like some people do.
In 2 Kings 2 :19 – 22; the inhabitants of Jericho provoked positive change from the Most High when they confronted Elisha with their situation of hopelessness. Again, when faced with discouragement and apparent delay, the Canaanite woman persisted in worshipping the Lord. True worship will provoke positive change (John 4 :23).
Child of God, do you want to provoke positive change? Make up your mind to worship God in spirit and truth. Matthew 15 :7 – 9; presents a category of people who are hypocritical in worship. These are the people whose hearts are far from God. But if you can worship God from your heart and exercise faith in Him, you will provoke that change you desire because God seeks such people to display His awesome works in their life.
I see you provoking that change you desire.
Prayer: My Father! My Father! As I begin to pray, release upon me the anointing that provokes positive change, in Jesus name.
