Today, we will consider two kinds of divine separation namely, forced separation and chosen separation. God usually orchestrates forced separation while chosen separation may be initiated by a discerning believer. You need to embrace these two separations for a complete experience with God. Forced separation often arises because many believers are insensitive to the move of God for a separation; they end up being forced apart from each other for God’s higher purpose.
 
The early church was situated at Jerusalem, breaking bread from house to house, they were enjoying favour. If they continued like that, they would have become assimilated into the culture of the day. God saw the danger in their settling down in Jerusalem and He told them to go into all the world, beginning at Jerusalem, Samaria and to the uttermost parts of the earth; but they were settled at Jerusalem. They were at ease and had no impetus to move nor were their hearts attuned to any instruction to move. God arranged a forced separation from Jerusalem through persecution and they were scattered abroad and went everywhere preaching the gospel (Acts 8:4).
 
In Joseph’s case, a forced separation was required to take him to the place his destiny and dream will be fulfilled. No one will get to his divine destination without separating from some people and things; if you do not hear God, He may need to force you. 
 
 
PRAYER: Lord, I embrace the divine separation crucial for my destiny. I refuse to be complacent or deaf. Holy Spirit please lead me on in Jesus’ name. Amen!
