Third Teaching Title: Prompt Response: A Requirement for maximising Encounter with God
Ministering: Pastor David Ibiyeomie
Prompt means to make something happen on time.
Response means reaction to something.
Prompt response means timely adherence to God’s instructions.
When things are not working, check where you are disobeying.
Life becomes sweet when you become swift in obedience.
God will always treasure those who take pleasure in swift obedience.
You become exceptional when you are intentional in obeying instructions.
Anytime you respond to God’s leading, He gives you a deep revelation.
When you ask God for a miracle, He gives you instructions. It is your prompt response to the instructions that will determine your encounter.
Anytime you respond to God, He shows you a deep revelation – Gen. 22:13
When things are not working, always check where you have gotten it wrong.
