Take a break for spiritual empowerment! That is what every believer should do occasionally. When God wanted to help David to defeat his oppositions, He told him to “sit down at His right hand until He makes his enemies his footstool”.
Sometimes, we just need to sit next to God until we receive enough power to continue our journey in life. Jacob did not know how to confront his brother, Esau; he was afraid that his brother would kill him. But the Bible tells us that he wrestled with an angel, and he particularly told the angel that “he would not let him go unless he blessed him”. It was that blessing that gave him courage to face Esau.
If you do not take a break for spiritual empowerment, then it will not be long before challenges overpowers you. I have often said that “the reason why challenges are too close to some people is because they are too far from God”. Spiritual empowerment keeps you close to God. That is probably why Jesus occasionally separated time to pray.
Bishop David Oyedepo has often mentioned how he separated time to deal with spiritual matters. And each of those times, he returned with a major breakthrough. Personally, I have created time to attend Shiloh, which commences on the 5th of December 2017. Power is what you need to continue and finish anything you’ve started. But to get power, you need to creat time for it.
Therefore, plan your leave period towards that set date. God has certainly prepared something for you @ Shiloh 2017.
God bless you, I love you, and don’t forget to share!
