Theophany

Question: “What is a theophany?

Answer: A theophany is a manifestation of God in the Bible that is tangible to the human senses. In its most restrictive sense, it is a visible appearance of God in the Old Testament period, often, but not always, in human form.  Read more:http://www.gotquestions.org/theophany-Christophany.html#ixzz33CA1BGVC

Priscilla in One in a Million shared several accounts of God manifesting himself through circumstances and His people to encourage others along their journey.  If you are reading the book, you’ll remember the $500 miracle, the flowers at just the right time, and how the Israelites were led by day and by night with a visual presence of the Lord in the wilderness.

God is present.  He is with you constantly and visibly.

After reading this chapter, I was amazed at the morning I had.  It was one of those mornings in which “everything happened at once” and you questioned your sanity.

At work a series of events took place in which a Holy God set up a divine appointment for me to be encouraged.  A friend of Victoria’s ended up in a meeting with me over the phone, and at the end of the meeting she spoke a word of encouragement and blessing into my life.  The timing was perfect, and I had not recognized her voice over the conference call, but she recognized my name and voice.

Not a coincidence.

In fact, we can become so cynical we miss the God moments.  We don’t recognize them or choose to be apathetic. In our Woman of Worth Mentoring Ministries Bible Study we talked about our future based on Proverbs 31.  Do we fear our future?  What worries us?  We all shared our areas of worry and concern.  It’s in those moments that God will show up and be faithful–always, and in His time–perfect timing.

In moments of great struggle or confusion, remember Him and all He has done for you!

Psalm 63:6-8

When I remember You upon my bed and meditate on You in the night watches. For You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings will I rejoice. My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me.

What new thing can you see in your life that God is doing?  Take notice of His presence and remember all He has done for you.
