And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed.
Yesterday we demystified the meaning of release and restoration, inorder to get a better understanding about its essence in the life of an individual (Click 👉 ACTIONS THAT GUARANTEE RELEASE AND RESTORATION (Pt 1)).
Release and restoration comes from no other, but God. It is the potency of the power of God, that guarantees release and restoration, hence for these two experiences to find expression in the life of a person, God must be present.
It is however important for us to come to terms with several actions that guarantee release, and restoration in the life of an individual;
1. AN ENCOUNTER WITH GOD
The presence of God carries power for liberation, which unsettles the status quo in the life of a person, by;
A. Connecting men and women back to their Source (God):
When the source of a thing is not discovered, its purpose is abused. There are many people today, who are living their lives outside their Source (God), hence the purpose of God for their lives, are never achieved, when they continue in that lane of life.
“When the source of a thing is not discovered, its purpose is abused”
Today, we see women sell their bodies for money, young men joining occultic groups, and all sort of vices to make money etc. The irony is that such people would never discover their purpose, because they are living outside their Source (God).
However, for God to cause a release and restoration in the life of a person, He redirects such a person back to Himself, because man cannot function effectively outside God. This is the reason, why a woman decides that she is going to become a prostitute, or a young man decides to become an armed robber, because they are functioning outside God, but ironically God has planned for such a woman to be a medical doctor, or the man to become an inventor.
Moses was born to be a leader who will lead the children of Israel out of Egypt, but he did not discover it yet, until he had an encounter with God. He was living, but the clarity of his purpose was not made known, until he met God (Exodus 3:11).
God started refining and redefining the path of Moses, by reminding him of his Source, as stated in Exodus 3:6;
“Moreover He said, “I am the God of your 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”.
This experience was a life changer, placing Moses as one of the greatest leaders, that ever walked through the earth. It is however important to note that, walking outside God is tantamount to working outside purpose, hence our submission to God should never be an option, if we desire to live a purposeful life.
“walking outside God, is tantamount to working outside purpose”.
Tommorow, we will be giving more examples on the effects of God’s encounter in the life of a person. Please keep a date with us.
God bless you.
