Importance Of Divine Connection

1 Kings 19:19(KJV)

So he departed thence, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth: and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him.

In 1 Kings 19, Elijah has a life-changing encounter with God on Mount Horeb, where he receives a significant mission to anoint Elisha as his successor for the position of Israel’s chief prophet. Afterward, he travels from Mount Horeb to Abel Meholah, where Elisha lives. With unwavering bravery, he drapes his robe over Elisha, signifying his divine calling to become a prophet and to walk in the footsteps of Elijah. Elisha responds courageously by bidding farewell to his parents, burning his farm equipment, slaughtering two oxen, and celebrating a going-away party before following Elijah. God divinely connected Elisha to Elijah, and that changed Elisha’s life forever. There are specific people whom God has positioned to cross our paths at every stage of our lives to make our journey smooth. God places people strategically in our lives to help bring to pass a promise or a future event that is pre-ordained. It is commonly referred to as divine appointments or divine connections. Throughout the Bible, God uses these connections, for example, Ruth and Naomi, David and Jonathan, and Paul and Timothy, to bring people into their destiny. Joseph’s life changed after he met the cupbearer in prison. He interpreted the cupbearer’s dream, which led to him interpreting Pharaoh’s dreams and becoming Egypt’s prime minister.

A divine connection is a supernatural act of God whereby He links up two or more people together to fulfill their destinies. They are God-breathed relationships that seemingly come out of nowhere and have the potential to impact our lives. In other words, they are vital to fulfilling the call of God in our lives. These connections encourage, support, celebrate, promote, empower, and pray for and with us. Psalm 37:23 says, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.” Divine connections are priceless because God uses these relationships to direct us to our destinies, thereby bringing us an increase. We will see His guidance with those who connect us when the Spirit of God moves and leads. We must recognize divine connections because they rarely come packaged as expected. The fulfillment of God’s purpose for our lives and the fulfillment of God’s destiny He has planned for us will significantly depend on divinely connecting with certain people and ministries. God has and will continue to bless us with divine connections. The question is, will we recognize them? Ecclesiastes 9:11 says, “I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.”

Beloved, the opportunity to meet the right people to advance your career or to fulfill your dreams will come together for your good. God has already prearranged your times of increase, promotion, and blessings. He created you with a purpose, for a purpose, and to be successful! God has marked moments already laid out that will come across your path. Never worry or be depressed about not winning right now, but continue to look up to God for His blessings for your life because the fastest runner does not always win the race nor the battle with the strong. I pray for you today that God will give you divine connections that will confound everyone who hears about it in Jesus’ Name. To be divinely connected, add virtue and brotherly kindness to your faith because faith without work is dead. Renew your relationship with the Lord and let holiness become your watchword. Endeavor to please Him in all your ways, and then you will experience divine connection. Today, open your eyes of faith and see the good things God has in store for your future. Thank Him for what He is doing and continue to do.

O Lord, thank You for the divine connections in my life. Connect me divinely in Jesus’ Name.
