Apostle Grace Lubega
Genesis 21:17-19(KJV); And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is. Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation. And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.
Hagar found herself in an extremely distressing situation. She and her son had been thrown out of the place they called home, the desert sun was mercilessly beating down on their heads and they had run out of water. To Hagar, it looked like the end for her and her son Ishmael.
However, the story takes an interesting turn when God opens her eyes to show her a well of water. It was there all along except she had not seen it.
How often do some people give up, throw in the towel and quit the faith because they feel they are at rope’s end yet their breakthrough is right in front of them?
Fear, pain and suffering have ways of clouding people’s visions that they fail to see past their present circumstances to the solutions God has placed before them.
God wants you to rise above the affliction in your body, the state of your finances or of your family and see. Your answer is not far!
Your deliverance is not years away; it is not hidden in formulas of what you must do to move God, it is right before you!
In Isaiah 59:1, the Bible says, “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear.”
This means that divine intervention is always near; supernatural manifestation is never far; God’s hand is not shortened!

PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this word. My eyes are opened to see the wells before me, wells of healing, of financial breakthrough, of ministry growth and of every area of my life in need of Your hand. I look past the trials of the moment to the answer right before my eyes. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
