Apostle Grace Lubega
Luke 19:44 (KJV); And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
In the previous devotions, we understood the nature of kairos and what it means to us as children of God. It is in kairos that we discern spiritual matters; it is the realm of opportunity and the realm in which we wait on God.
What we also need to understand is that kairos defines our spiritual experiences because they happen in kairos moments and not in chronos.
As a child of God, you should never underestimate the power of divine experiences because these experiences are our equipment as servants of the Most High God.
Leonard Ravenhill, an evangelist and author once said, “a man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument.”
The more a man understands kairos, the better positioned he is for spiritual experiences; the deeper he is launched into these experiences, the better equipped he is for service unto God.
In our theme scripture, the Bible speaks of those that did not know the kairos of their visitation. When a man does not sense kairos, he misses out on fundamental spiritual experiences; when he does, he will lack critical graces that should work in him in his service to God.
Understand spiritual time because it positions us for the experiences we need which ultimately strengthen us in our service to the Most High God.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The more a man understands kairos, the better positioned he is for spiritual experiences; the deeper he is launched into these experiences, the better equipped he is for service unto God.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this word. I thank You because You found me worthy to serve and to be a minister of the gospel. You have equipped me through experiences, by the things I see, hear, touch and taste. I move from experience to experience and as I do, I grow in strength, grace and ability, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
