Defining moments define men and women. The reason we are talking about David today is because he recognized his defining moment. David battling the bear was not his defining moment, it was his training. David confronting the lion was not his defining moment, it was his training, but David confronting Goliath was a defining moment. Will you be ready for your defining moment when it comes? Will you also be in the form and shape to take advantage of your defining moment?
Your defining moment will be associated with an event, sometimes with some personalities and sometimes with a set of circumstances. It could even be a task, an opportunity or prophetic utterances that will key you into your defining moment. For example, the defining moment of Rahab the harlot came when two spies came and they needed a place to hide in Jericho.
There are some things God sovereignty chooses for us without our opinion and there is nothing we can do about that. Your destiny is your discovery and you must identify the events that are associated with your defining moments. You must understand that certain events don't just happen by chance. God always gives you an opportunity to do something or sow a seed that will carry weight in heaven. On the day that you need a divine provocation to do something for you, there will be something to hold on to.
Train yourself to recognize events, activities and requests that are not normal. Great offers of God always come in different packages. The next level of God for you could come as you are running errands for the anointed but the attitude and passion with which you do the act will determine whether you connect to your moment or not. Sometimes, the job that will connect you to the head of your organization could be a very simple “innocent-looking” job. You must cultivate the habit of doing small things in a great way. Train yourself to do simple things in a perfect way because you never can tell where it would lead you to.This was the attitude of Joseph that took him to the throne.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive a sensitivity to connect to my divine moment. I pray for a connection mind set to see the doing of the Lord and respond accurately to the Lord’s demand in Jesus’ name. Amen.
