The God of “Turn-Around”
You are welcome into God’s presence in Jesus’ name! This week, I want to share with you “The God of “Turn-Around”
|Related Scriptures:||Psalm 126:1-6; 1 Samuel 3:21; Ezekiel 37; Luke 5; Mark 8:24:25; 1 Samuel 2:1-10; Mark 5:16; Psalm 107:20; Psalm 74:9-10; 2 Kings 6; Psalm 30:5; and Psalm 107: 17-20.|
Our God is “A God of “Turn-Around.” As we read the passages in Psalm 126:1-6 and 1 Samuel 3:21, we read the word “again” at least three times as the passages make reference to God’s mighty acts and His marvelous visitations. The word “again” simply means “repetition”. Throughout the Bible, God proved Himself as a God of “Turn-Around” many times over as he performed mighty acts of deliverance, healing, restoration and miracles. The God of “Turn-Around” visited Sarah, in old age, as He promised. In addition, He visited Blind Bartimaeus and turned things around for him. If you are in a situation today where you feel that nothing makes sense, all the doors are closed and your friends have abandoned you, don’t worry because God is going to turn things around for you! Our God of “Turn-Around” is the Ancient of Days, He is the Alpha and the Omega and He is capable of turning any situation around for you. When He turns things around, your mouth will be full of laughter!
What does “Turn-Around” Mean?
As was the case with Blind Bartimaeus, God visited him and perfected his sight. So, in this case “Turn-Around” means “a second visitation” and a “touch of perfection”. In the cases of “broken homes” and “disappointments of the past”, God can still move in your favor. He can turn things around and make things better for you! He has the Keys of David, He turned things around for Moses and the Israelites in the Red Sea and He is still “The God of Turn-Around” today! Why is He “The God of Turn-Around”?…because he can do and undo! He can make a way out of no way and He can make the crooked places straight. When He turns things around, peace becomes a palace and He can reverse the irreversible. He reversed the law for Esther to see the king and He reversed Hezekiah’s death sentence into a life sentence of an additional fifteen years! Moreover, if God can stop the moon and the sun for Joshua, He can turn things around for us because we are under His grace.
What is necessary in order to have a “Turn-Around?”
First, you need a divine visitation such as the one that Abraham had experienced. That is how he became the father of many nations. You need divine visitations like those of Mary and Martha who were faithful to believe God’s word. The next thing that you need is a word from the Lord. Ezekiel received a word from the Lord and it changed is outlook on dry situations. God told him to “Prophesy to the dry bones!” So, a word from the Lord can move you in the right direction as you begin to declare it and prophesy to the dry situations. Next, in order for you to experience a “Turn-Around”, you need a prophet. What is a prophet? A prophet is a messenger of “Good News” who is sent as an agent of change. If you listen to and obey God’s “true prophets” you can have a “Turn-Around” in your situation.
What do you need to bring forth your “Turn-Around?”
In order to bring forth a “Turn-Around” in your situation, you need to exercise your “own faith”, you need the place of God’s favor and you need to understand the “role of sowing a seed”. You need to encourage yourself in the Lord, mediate on His word and believe that the impossible is possible. Exercise your faith to the point which you believe that you have already received your desired results and wait expectantly for the physical manifestations of them. Continue to worship and praise the Lord for His blessings in your life. Praise Him for who He is…He is the Alpha and the Omega, The Ancient of Days, The Lord of Lord and the King of Kings. To provoke the God of Turn-Around to move in your favor, you must also understand the importance of sowing a seed into His Kingdom. Sometimes it is necessary for you to sow a sacrificial seed for a particular breakthrough and expect a bountiful harvest. Last, you must be mindful of any sin in your life during the time of “Turn-Around” If there is any habit or act of un-confessed sin in your life, you must be careful to repent so that it will not block your “Turn-Around Blessing”. If you follow these principles, you will see that your God of second chances is certainly a “Turn-Around God” of signs, wonders and miracles. He is capable of turning around any situation and He has more than a billion ways to do it. So, get ready for your divine visitation and your word from God. Listen to his prophets and be blessed as your “God of Turn-Around” brings forth a touch of perfection in your situation today!
