JANUARY 2022 IMPARTATION SERVICE/GRACE AND GLORY IN HIS PRESENCE – WEEK 3 – SUNDAY 16TH JANUARY 2022
ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): HABAKKUK 2:1
SERVICE OBJECTIVE(S): Understanding the right posture or position for Divine Direction
Divine direction is a vital necessity for the Christian life as a whole
WHY DIVINE DIRECTION IS A VITAL NECESSITY:
- Life itself is at the mercy of direction from God
- People can be victims of the wrong and disastrous relationships for lack of Divine direction
- People become victims of massive losses, in investments and other areas, for failing to hear from God
- Many are victims of chronic stagnation and delay for failing to hear God
- Many are victims of labour without reward and labour in frustration because of labouring in the wrong endeavour
THE RIGHT POSTURE FOR DIVINE DIRECTION
- Be desperate to know the Mind of God (Hos. 6:3; Hab. 2:1)
You can’t have insight where you don’t have interest
Desperation is key to direction
God will not bother you with what does not bother you
- Possess the quality of meekness (Ps. 25:9; Num. 12:3)
The meek is the only one qualified to be guided and to be taught
WHAT MEEKNESS REFERS TO:
2a. Ability to be taught; teachability
2b. Ability to be corrected
2c. Ability to make a U-turn when you have made a wrong turn
When you are married to your mistakes you continue to deliver regrets
Every time there is a mistake, where possible, there can be a retake
- Commit your steps to the Lord (Prov. 3:5-6; Ps. 37:5)
Don’t take important steps or make important moves without checking it out with the Lord
Not every good idea is a God idea; there are good ideas that are traps
If God knows that you don’t do anything without handing it over to Him, He will guide you
- Possess the attitude of enquiry (the capacity to ask questions) (Jer. 6:16; Matt. 7:7-8; Ps. 2:8; Prov. 20:5)
Answers are the products of questions; until questions are asked, answers are never accessed
Don’t be afraid to ask questions because God is looking for questions to answer!
Divine direction is the backbone of spiritual conquerors
THE IMPLICATIONS OF ASKING QUESTIONS:
4a. God loves to be asked (Ps. 2:8; Matt. 7:7)
4b. Asking is proof of human helplessness and dependence on God and God will never abandon the helpless
4c. Asking opens up the mind and heart to answers (Prov. 20:5)
EXAMPLES OF QUESTIONS TO ASK GOD:
i. Lord, is there something You are saying that I am not hearing?
ii. Lord, what is the mystery behind this struggle?
iii. Lord, what is the secret to move to the next level?
Ask revelation expectation questions
- Be charged with the Word of God (Eph. 5:26; Ps. 29:3)
The Word of God is the Companion of the Voice of God; the Voice of God is the Container of the Word of God
Whenever you are in touch with the Word of God, you are in touch with the Voice of God.
5a. The Word of God familiarizes a person with the Voice of God
5b. The Word of God connects you with the Person of God (John 1:1; 1 Cor. 14:10)
- Pray abundantly in the Spirit (2 Tim. 1:6; Rom. 8:14; 1 Cor. 14:2, 15)
6a. Praying in the Spirit primes or stirs the activity of the Holy Spirit (2 Tim. 1:6; Rom. 8:14)
Most times God will show you things one step at a time
Praying in the Spirit sharpens our spiritual sensitivity
6b. Praying in the Spirit helps you to tap into the frequency of mysteries (1 Cor. 14:2)
6c. Praying in the Spirit irrigates the spirit of man with information and understanding (1 Cor. 14:15)

Father, I receive the grace for consistency in doing the right thing; I receive that grace now, in Jesus’ Name! (Zech. 1:17; Gen. 8:22)
