MEMORY VERSE: and when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him, Exodus 34:30

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Deut 28, Ps 119:25-48, Isa 55, Matt 3

What is a wonder? A wonder is someone or something that amaze people. A simpler definition of a wonder is anything that makes you wonder. One of the names of our Lord is Wonderful, Isaiah 9:6. Wonderful means full of wonders. Our God is full of wonders. Everything about Him is a wonder. He created the heavens and the earth. The heaven is a wonder and the earth is wonder too. It is cold in one part of the world and at the same time hot in another part of the world. It is morning in one part of the world, afternoon in another part and midnight in another part of the world all at the same time. God is indeed wonderful.
Everything the Lord does is a wonder. When He visits a fellow or a family, that fellow or family becomes a wonder. If you don’t believe check the story of Sarah, Genesis 18. It would be an understatement to say Sarah was barren because at the age of ninety her womb was stone dead. After the Lord visited her, Sarah became a wonder. For a ninety year old woman to nurse a child, that is a wonder! Everyone who saw Sarah knew the Lord had paid her a visit. If you see anyone boasting that He has received visitation from the Lord, they are probably prophesying. You don’t have to open your mouth before people will know that you have encountered the Most High God.

This was the case of Moses. Immediately He returned from the presence of God the whole nation knew that Moses had seen something no eye had ever seen. Exodus 34:30 says and when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him. Moses did not tell anyone what he saw, when people saw the skin on his face shining like the Sun, they put two and two together and came to the conclusion that Moses was in receipt of a visitation from the Bright and Morning Star. Only a visitation from God is needed to transform you and your situation around. How did Saul a sworn enemy of Jesus become a disciple of Christ? A divine visitation .The man who was going from synagogue to synagogue to arrest believers suddenly became an evangelist because the Jesus Christ visited him on his way to Damascus. Paul later became a wonder; demons saw aprons that had touched the skin of Paul and they began to run, Acts 19:12.

PRAYER POINTS: Father, please visit me today so that I will become a wonder in these generation.

Genesis 18:3 – and said “My Lord, if I have now found favour in Your sight, do not pass on by Your servant.

In Genesis 18:1-33 is a story we all know quite well. The Most High God with two angels visited family of Abraham. This visit marked the dawn of a new beginning in that family. On the day God visited the family of Abraham, five things happened. Firstly, He dealt with their enemy which was fruitlessness. Every time they tried at having children they met with frustration. Secondly, He dealt with their shame. Out of desperation, Sarah with Abraham arranged to have a child through Hagar (Sarah‘s maidservant). Immediately Hagar conceived, she began to despise Sarah because she was barren. By despising Sarah she was indirectly despising Abraham the husband. God took away the shame by giving Sarah a son. Thirdly, He fulfilled the promise of a son He had made to Abraham fourteen years earlier in Genesis 15:4. Fourthly, He gave Abraham an opportunity to make a request. Abraham’s request was that Sodom and Gomorrah be spared if ten good men were found in them and the Lord said done! Lastly, by the time God left, their joy was full.

When Jesus visited the world over 2000 years ago, He dealt with the enemy – sickness, fruitless efforts, death to mention a few. Secondly, He took away shame. All righteousness according to Isaiah 64:6 was as filthy rags before God, but when Jesus came He brought the garment of righteousness – Romans 13:14. Thirdly, He fulfilled the promise that was made in Isaiah 53:5 which says He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Fourthly, He gave an opportunity for everyone to make a request. Matthew 7:7 says ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. Lastly, by the time He left the joy of all those who received Him were full because they could now be addressed as sons and daughter of God. John 1:12 says but as many as received Him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. Jesus is still willing to visit us individually. He wants to deal with our enemies, take away our shame and reproach, fulfill His promises for our lives, give us an opportunity to make a request and by the time He leaves ensure that our joy is full. A point to note is Jesus is a gentleman; He does not gatecrash into people’s life or homes except when invited. When He is invited He only honours invitation of His friends. His friends are those who obey Him – John 15:14. You will never see His friends participating in internet fraud. His friends are pure, they never swear or curse. His friends are like Job, they have made covenant with their eyes not to lustfully look at any woman or man (Job 31:1).

KEY POINT: Before inviting Him, settle everything that could stand between you and Him or else He will not honour the invitation.
