LIKE A DREAM CHAMPION? 
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye

Memorise: “When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like then that dream” Psalm 126:1
Read: Psalm 126:1-4
Bible in one year:  Psalm 37-39
Action point: Ask that as many as are in various bondages, such as prostitution, alcohol, sodomy, drug addiction, masturbation, serial killing etc, be liberated by the blood of Jesus

Sometimes, when the King of glory pays you a visit, things will happen so fast that you may think that you are dreaming. When Peter had such a visit, he thought he was dreaming. After the angel led him out of the prison and finally vanished, that was when he realised it was no dream (Acts 12:1-11). A brother who never believed he could own a car in his life time received a great shocker one day when a relative bought him a car and asked somebody to deliver it to him. He asked: ‘Is this for me?’ The one who brought it said Yes’. The man simply turned around and began to walk away. He thought he was dreaming. Psalm 126:1-3 says when God visited His people who were in captivity, their deliverance came like a dream. Then those who were full of sorrow became filled with might and laughter. The truth is: after waiting for long to receive a particular blessing, when the blessing is to come, it will be in a hurry, especially if there is a divine visitation influencing it. In the name of Jesus, your blessing shall come to you like a dream. That good desire that has been denied you for so long will be delivered to you this season. Your blessings are going to locate you in a hurry. However, you may want to ask: How can I initiate a divine visitation? This can be done through prayer. Acts 12:5 says before Peter’s divine visitation, the church prayed without ceasing. Don’t give up on your prayers! Be persistent until God shows up. Also, high praises in the midst of that unpleasant situation can attract God’s visitation as was the experience with Paul and Silas (Acts 16:25-26). In addition, you can attract God’s visit when you give what nobody else has given, It could be money, time, dedication, etc. This was how Solomon attracted a divine visitation (2 Chronicles 1:6-12). Moreover, you can attract God’s visit by honouring God in different ways, particularly with your first fruits. God says He will honour those who honour Him (1 Samuel 230). Are you prepared to honour Him? Go ahead and provoke God’s divine visitation today!
