Memorise: And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and saw him, and said unto Him, Zacchaeus make haste and come down; for today I must abide at thy house. Luke 19:5
Read: Acts 10:1-6, (KJV)
1 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band,
Bible in one year: 1st John 5 – Jude 1, Psalm 31:1-8
There is no one that cannot command the attention of Heaven. Those who believe that people in great positions or people in affluence are far from God will be surprised to know that there are many wealthy people doing great things for the Lord, and there are people in great positions who are using their influence to add positive value to their environment. The example of Zacchaeus reveals that it is possible to remain faithful to God regardless of the amount of wealth at a person’s disposal. Righteous, rich people are great instruments in the hands of God because they use their wealth and God given positions to expand His Kingdom. Also, the example of Cornelius reveals to us that God is a God of plan and purpose. He was very influential in his days; nevertheless, he was a devoted man who was obedient to the will of God. He was very generous to those around him. He had a very good reputation but he was not saved. Hence, God had a plan for him in order that he might be saved. God wanted to prove a point to the Jews through his life that there is no one that is beyond redemption. This week, your prayers will command the attention of Heaven in Jesus’ name. The moment he got a revelation of what he needed to do, he complied fully without delay and he got the attention of Heaven.
Open Heavens 8 August 2016: - Heavenly attention
“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory”
When God visits you, you will begin to know the meaning of true riches, despite the fact that people had always known you to be wealthy; your new level of wealth will dwarf the former. He will bring you to a greater level of wealth where you begin to flourish in all things. He makes the great grater and he turns all curses to blessings.
There is a day of visitation and every child of God is destined for such a time when the Heavens will be at attention in order to bless someone. Today is your day in Jesus’ name. This is your day of remembrance, and all that you have been trusting God for shall be delivered in Jesus’ name. All you need to do is allow Jesus to come into your life. Allow the plan and purpose that God has for you to come to pass and that can only be possible when you surrender to Jesus and make Him your personal Lord and Saviour.
(8 August 2016 open heavens)
Father, please pay attention to me today in Jesus’ name.
