“Some men came, bringing to him a paralysed man, carried by four of them. Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralysed man, ‘Son, your sins are forgiven”.
One of the best decisions I will hail Dad and Mum for permanently is the choice of where to build our house- We are blessed. I am not even talking about the serenity of the environment.
One of the challenges in my town is water supply. But we had a neighbour and awesome family friend who dug as many wells as possible. He then connected pipes to his hospital and his home. Guess what? Our house benefited out of it.
The trips to the well reduced – we simply had to open our taps and the water flowed. We built a reservoir. Scarcity was over. As long as he pumped water, we had water!
God says to tell you that, “Your season of dryness is over. He will position you rightly. What others struggle to get, you will have it by favour”.
Listen, you will stop running after it. It will run after you.
But there is something important- Understand what it means to be rightly positioned. You must have friends in your life who are connected to the well.
Friends who when you pinch them, worship flows. Friends who drip with the oil of prayer. You cannot hang around a prayerful friend and live a playful life. When men who are drenched in fellowship hug you, the water does not spare you – no matter how small the quantity.
If you do not have folks in your life who ignites graceful words of prayer and faith in you, you better change address. Some things are not a matter of prayer point, they answer to proper positioning.
Friends can bring spiritual famine or whatever famine to an end in your life. When Paul and Silas worshipped in prison, the miracle was not a sole proprietorship, it was for as many as were associated with them there – it was publicly quoted.
Everyone must have at least 4 crazy friends who would not watch them dry up on the bed of prayerlessness. They will carry you till you hear, “Son, pick up your mat and walk”.
Stay connected to the well. That spell of dryness is broken.
My season of dryness is over. I am rightly positioned. What others struggle to get, I will have it by favour.
In the name of Jesus, I am connected to the wells that are vital to my destiny. Lord, deliver me from companies that are not beneficial to my destiny.
