November 20, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – YOUR PERSONAL REVELATION OF JESUS (1) – Matthew 16:18-19
It is very critical for you to understand the subject of today if you are going to prevail as a Christian in the journey and situations of life. What is your personal revelation of Jesus? The revelation of God that we personally have is the secret of our victory. This is not what someone else says or knows about Jesus but your personal revelation of Jesus. Do you have a personal revelation of Him? You must be clear about this.
The rock that the Lord Jesus referred to in our text is revelation-based knowledge not sense-based knowledge. This was the difference between Elisha and the sons of the prophet. All of them had access to the information that Elijah would be taken away but only Elisha knew beyond that. He had revelation beyond the general information that when Elijah is taken, there will be a vacancy in the prophetic and somebody will have to step in and he pursued that until he got the double portion of Elijah’s spirit. It is only those who wait for the revelation beyond the information whose lives are changed.
Our quietness and confidence is a product of the revelation we carry inside, not the situations we find ourselves in. The young man that was with Elisha cried unto him in 2 Kings 6 when the King of Assyria sent soldiers to Dothan where the prophet was. He said, “Alas, my master! How shall we do?” Elisha prayed and his eyes were opened; and when he saw the chariots of fire and horses, he remained quiet. God wants your revelation to change. Your situation may not change but when your revelation changes, your solution begins.
PRAYER: I receive a personal revelation of Jesus over my present situation in Jesus name. Amen!
