Memorize: When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Psalms 126:1
Devotional Reading: Psalm 126:1-4
Turning point is a point when things turn around, usually for the better. Turning point is a period “when the LORD step into a situation” it doesn’t come always, you don’t see it every time, until it is needed. From our memorize of today the people living in Zion have been living in captivity and oppression for so long, they have suffered affliction, i am sure some have lost hope, some probably have died, while some must have said there is no God. But the bible says when it was time for God to swing into action, what they thought couldn’t change experienced a 360 degree turning point in a moment, they couldn’t believe it themselves, they thought they were dreaming. I am praying for someone reading this devotional, whatever situation is oppressing you, my God will step in Now and turn things around for you positively in the name of Jesus. It does not matter how long or how bad the situation has been, God will give you triumph in this month.
Turning point could mean different things to different people depending on the circumstance. When someone that has been jobless for years gets a new job, it is a turning point. When someone that has been called barren, now called mummy it is a turning point. When someone that has been living in a rented apartment miraculously build a house and moved in, it is a turning point. When a nation that has been capsulated with all forms of war’s or epidemics suddenly experience peace or healing, it is a turning point. When a couple that has been separated or divorced got back together, it is a turning point. Whatever your case may be, I pray God will turn things around for you in Jesus name.
Everyone desires to move forward and can move forward. In Luke 5:1-10 there was the story of some men who was frustrated in their trained profession, they labored all night with all their experience of catching fish, but they caught nothing, they were tired and gave up. They were washing their net when the master of turning point got into their boat, He told them “launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught” at first one of them was saying, “master we have toiled all the night, and have got nothing, nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net” bible told us that they caught so much fishes that their net was breaking, even the boat was sinking. What a great turning point in the lives of these fishermen, such will be your testimony this month in Jesus name. I have experienced turning point in my life, family, business and ministry on a number of occassions, so I know what it means and i know it is possible.
Blind Bartimeus had a turning point.The woman with the issue of blood, Paul the Apostle, Elizabeth the wife of the priest, even the land of Samaria, each one had a turning point.You too will have a turning point and the nation of Nigeria will have a turning point in the name of Jesus.Your time has come, your season has come, it wont be long and you will share your testimony to the glory of God, IJMN Amen.
Prayer point; Father, please give me a positive turn around in my life in Jesus name.
Key Dose: When all hope is gone, and efforts of man failed, JESUS never fail.
