How to Ignite the Move of God in Trying Times

Chaos happens to all of us. Know that God is in total control and be poised for Him to move in your circumstances. The Bible tells us that before there was light, the Spirit of God hovered over the Earth. Thus, when God said, “Let there be light,” there was light. Similarly, when you speak His Word into a chaotic situation, you will see His power change your circumstances.

When you ignite a move of God, three things will occur:

1. You will activate your divine destiny.

Abraham ignited his divine destiny by listening to and following the Word of God.

The LORD had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” (Genesis 12:1-3)

Moses ignited his divine destiny in the burning bush experience because he decided to obey God. God used Moses’ staff to do many miracles. In the same way, God can use what you have to carry out His purpose for your life.

Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the LORD appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. (Exodus 3:1-2)

When you fail to listen to God’s voice, you will struggle. As we have seen, two laws are constantly at work in our bodies, the law of the Spirit and the other the law of the flesh. The law we abide by will determine the course of our lives.

“Then say to Pharaoh, ‘This is what the LORD says: Israel is my firstborn son, and I told you, “Let my son go, so he may worship me.” But you refused to let him go; so I will kill your firstborn son.’” (Exodus 4:22-23)

2. There will be deliverance.

You and I cannot be set free unless God gives us the breakthrough. Moses followed God’s instruction and told Pharaoh to let His people go. As we know, the Israelites were delivered from Egypt.

“‘You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites.” (Exodus 19:4-6)

As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet: “A voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him. Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill made low. The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth. And all people will see God’s salvation.’” (Luke 3:4-6)

3. There will be a reformation.

We need to speak God’s Word before reformation can take place. What you see and hear will influence your opinions. Be watchful so that you filter out things that are not from God. See and hear His truth, for you are created for His good purposes.

Ears that hear and eyes that see— the LORD has made them both. (Psalm 20:12)
