Special Divine Encounter (Day 3)
Bible Text: Daniel 6:1-5
1) Humanly speaking when you are comparing things, we always talk about good, better and best. God has something better than best, it is excellence.
Daniel had an excellent Spirit upon him.
To be excellent requires special favour from the Most High God.
2) After they threw Daniel to the den of lions, the king returned to the palace and began to fast and pray. The King interceded for Daniel.
No matter how great you are, you need somebody to intercede for you.
Everybody needs someone to pray for him or her.
Don’t rely on human beings to pray for you. Read more

Bible Text: Acts 2:1-8
The first thing you need to know is that Holy spirit is God. Some get confused when we say there is only one God but at the same time we say there is God the Father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit.
The truth is that there is only one God but He manifests Himself in 3 different ways. How is this possible you? Consider this scenario: Pastor Adeboye is a Son, a husband and a father but he is still one person despite the 3 personalities. The way he acts with his mum will be different from how he behaves with his wife and also different from how he acts with his children.
There is one God and he manifests in 3 ways. The way God operates as God the father is different from how He operates as God the son and it’s also different from the way he operates as God the Holy Spirit.
It is hard to describe God the Holy Spirit but He can be described as a mighty rushing wind, fire, oil or a mighty river.
The Holy Spirit as Wind;
In Exodus 14:21-28 When Moses lifted his hand towards the red sea, the bible says there was a mighty rushing wind from the east that parted the red sea. Read more
Text: Esther 5:1-3
“Now it came to pass on the third day, that Esther put on her royal apparel, and stood in the inner court of the king’s house, over against the king’s house: and the king sat upon his royal throne in the royal house, over against the gate of the house. And it was so, when the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, that she obtained favour in his sight: and the king held out to Esther the golden sceptre that was in his hand. So Esther drew near, and touched the top of the sceptre. Then said the king unto her, What wilt thou, queen Esther? and what is thy request? it shall be even given thee to the half of the kingdom.”
The first thing we notice from the text is that the King saw Esther where she was standing at the inner court of the palace. No matter where you are, when the time for God to favour you comes, that favour will locate you. In Genesis 18:1-5, favour located Abraham at home in the plain of Mamre. In 1samuel 16, David was in the farm looking after his father’s sheep and favour located him there. In Mark 3:1-5, the man with the withered hand was in the synagogue, a place of worship when favour located him. In Mark 5:1-15, favour located the mad man of Gadara at the grave yard. Whether you are at home, in the office, market place or church, the favour of the almighty God will locate you tonight in Jesus name. You will obtain favour in the sight of the King of kings tonight in Jesus name. Amen! Read more
