Have you ever been in a situation where you literally said under your breath, “God how I wish you would come right now”. These are the type of prayers people do often in their life, not knowing that God is listening to those specific prayers. Throughout History we have seem God do the unlimited, beyond what we could dare asked or think and this specifically I called a suddenly of God. In the World, we live in today people are tired, restless, overburdened but these synthons are exactly the breathing ground for us to get desperate for God and desire His suddenly in our lives.
9 but just as it is written [in Scripture],
“Things which the eye has not seen and the ear has not heard,
And which have not entered the heart of man,
All that God has prepared for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, who obey Him, and who gratefully recognize the benefits that He has bestowed].”
1 Corinthians 2:9 AMP
Paul, declared these words in a season where things seemed to not be working for him. Situations in the believer’s life was hard and persecution was in the back of their minds. Pressure from the culture was coming his way but during his tiredness, restless, and unknown future. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit he writes 1 Cor. 2:9; For no eye and no ear has herd the things that God has prepared for those who loved Him...
Do you love Him (Jesus)? Then rest assured that He is working even when we can’t see Him working. The spirit of God inside of you is a powerful agent that helps you intercede in time of need. With this knowledge, we can understand that there are two main Spirits in operation in our lives. The spirit of the world; is when your flesh begins to make plans, the spirit behind gossip and all kinds of evil desires tempting you daily. At the same time, we possess the Spirit of God inside of us, which means we have an advantage in the midst of our disadvantage. The spirit of God is able to let you know what kind of attacks the devil is bringing against you.
How do I know God’s suddenly is for me today?
The suddenly of God is not a foreign concept, in the bible we will look at some key characters to explain and give us insight into how does God’s suddenly work in our lives today.
32 Of the tribe of Issachar, men who understood the times, with knowledge of what course Israel should take, two hundred chiefs; and all their relatives were at their command;
How was it possible for 12 tribes to know about God but only the Sons of Issachar according to the Bible in that point of time knew how to get insight in which course their community needed to take. Because they knew the times these men had knowledge of the course of action, maybe your reading this today and you don’t know which course you ought to take with your home, your kids, your job, your ministry and business. But I can tell you with all sincerity, is God’s spirit that will guide you in these times you are living in. How is it possible with all the resources, teachings, preaching’s, prophetic words that have been spoken in the 21stCentury Church and many in the Church still can’t discern what God is up to today. What is God’s heart for the hour? Sadly, some in the body of Christ are clueless as to what the answer is and what course are we to take.
“Everyone is so focus on the wilderness they are going through, that they are missing the cloud of God guiding them ahead to deliverance.”
Abraham knew nothing of what God was about to do through him. We find him in the land of UR serving his father. But God knew his heart and that he was moldable to be use by God!SuddenlyGod calls him...
The Lord said to Abram: Go out from your land, your relatives, and your father’s house
to the land that I will show you. 2 I will make you into a great nation, I will bless you, I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.3 I will bless those who bless you,
I will curse those who treat you with contempt, and all the peopleson earth
will be blessedthrough you.
One man in the land out of everyone on the earth who was available as a soldier in the Army of the Lord to be able to discern the times and respond to God and know which course to take. Radical Obedience was necessary for Abraham to experience the suddenly of God in his life. When I say the suddenly of God, I am talking about of an intervention from God in your situation, where God is going to come through for you and you won’t even understand how it happened but you will burst into joy because your God came through for you.
Mosesexperience the suddenly of God, he was in the desert running from pharaoh under persecution afraid for His life! And as he was serving his father in-law faithfully God appear to him in the middle of nowhere.
Meanwhile, Moses was shepherding the flock of his father-in-law Jethro,[a] the priest of Midian. He led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb,[b] the mountain of God.2 Then the Angel of the Lordappeared to him in a flame of fire within a bush. As Moses looked, he saw that the bush was on fire but was not consumed.
Faithfulness in the kingdom of God is what God is looking for in these times! There is a whole lot of people who claim allegiance to the Lamb of God but when He doesn’t give them what they want. They quit the calling, they start complaining and murmuring but, Moses faithfully doing his small task according to human wisdom experience God’s Suddenly. But what was the reason God’s suddenly coming upon him? It was for the deliverance of His people.
The suddenly of God is to give you purpose, God is in control of your timing, therefore it is in the suddenly of God that you will discover your purpose. Do you feel like you’re running but have no destination? I declare over your life you are about to experience a suddenly like never-before that will dictate the next 25 years of your life!
If this is your status today that you are dealing with a situation that is beyond your comprehension, you’re going through a wilderness? God says hold on for your suddenly is already at hand!
The Greatest suddenly that has ever occurred in history was when our savior came into the world. In that time, the oppression from the outside was so strong people were being decapitated, crucified, and everyone was living in panic. But praise God at the appointed time the Suddenly of God show up...
28 And the angel came to her and said, “Rejoice, favored woman! The Lord is with you.”[i] 29 But she was deeply troubled by this statement, wondering what kind of greeting this could be. 30 Then the angel told her: Do not be afraid, Mary,
for you have found favor with God.31 Now listen: You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will call His name Jesus.
The Son of God came suddenly and not many were expecting him. Only two people the Bible mentions that were aware of who this child was. Simeon in Luke 1:25-26 and Anna the Prophetess in Luke 2:29-32. How was it possible there were not more? Because these two were hungry for God’s spirit to show them what was God up to in that moment. Through the Spirit, fasting, and prayer they prepared themselves to hear and know the timing of God.
The devil hates the suddenly of God over your life. Because he has a bad taste from it.
8 None of the rulers of this age recognized and understood this wisdom; for if they had Known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory;
Had the Devil known the ministries you are about to take part of, he wouldn’t had tormented you with discouragement. Had the Devil known the deliverance that is about to take place in your City, He wouldn’t had lie about your identity in Christ. Had the Devil known the Godly family you will be, he wouldn’t had tried to make your marriage divorce. Had the Devil known your kids would serve God as the scriptures declared as for me and my house we shall serve the Lord, he wouldn’t had messed with your children’s testimony. Had the Devil known your sickness would turn to a testimony of God’s healing power, he wouldn’t had messed with your health. Had the Devil known your finances were going to help finance the kingdom of God, he wouldn’t had intervened in your finances because God will continue to provide for all your needs. Had the Devil known this year will be the year of commitment to the Lord and His kingdom, he would of thought twice in coming to attack you.
How can you experience God’s suddenly? Continue serving God in your small assignment however that may look like. Continue being faithful to God’s call in your life and the people he has giving you to minister to. Lastly one the most important partner with the Holy Spirit and watch how God’s suddenly will overtake and bring deliverance into your life.
