RCCG Open Heaven 28 December 2022 MESSAGE
The divine love of God makes Him set a person up for uncommon miracles. Solomon offered a thousand burnt offerings in one day; this moved God to ask him for what he wanted and he said, “Give me wisdom”. God responded to his request by saying, “I will give you wisdom and add every other thing you didn’t ask for”. I spent some time studying Solomon because of his wisdom and prosperity. I had to ask myself “This was a young man who knew he was not wise, because that must have been why he asked for wisdom; how come he thought of giving God a thousand burnt offerings?” I then got a revelation from the Lord – it was a divine set-up. It is God who inspired Solomon to do something nobody had ever done before so that He, in turn, could do for him what He had never done for anyone before.
In (2 Samuel 12:24-25), the Bible says that when Solomon was born, God Himself called him Jedidiah, meaning Beloved of the Lord. When God loves you, from time to time, He will set you up for an uncommon miracle. He will inspire you to do something that will sound stupid to everybody else so that He can give you what nobody else can get.
One day, when my Father-in-the-Lord was still alive, he told all the Church workers that there was an urgent need in the Church that had to be met early that week, so he asked us all to go and close our accounts, then bring all the money to the Church. My wife and I went to the bank the next day, closed our accounts, then brought the money to Church. The next Sunday, my Father-in-the Lord announced to all workers that the need had been met, then asked ‘Wait a minute; how many of you closed your accounts?” Only my wife and I raised our hands. When I realised that we were the only ones who closed our accounts, I started to think, “I hope I have not added madness to my own Christianity?” Just then I heard the Lord speak to me, “Son, you are not mad, I have made you do something that nobody else will do, so that when I take you to where I am taking you to, nobody can complain”.
Is the Lord inspiring you to do something seemingly crazy for Him? Do it so that you don’t miss the opportunity to get an uncommon miracle.
Father, when You set me up for an uncommon miracle, please Lord, don’t let me fail You.

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
