A Fresh Revelation of God By Bishop Keith Butler
“And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform” (Rom. 4:21).
Spending time with God keeps our eyes on His plan for our life.
Abraham tried to get God to accept and bless what was natural law—Ishmael. But eventually, something different happened to Abraham. He obviously got to thinking about what God said—that God was going to give him a son supernaturally through his wife Sarah—until it became fresh revelation to Abraham.
You need fresh revelation. I don’t care if you’ve been around the word of faith for 19 years; you need fresh revelation. And you don’t have to wait on a preacher to get it. You can get in the Word of God yourself. A preacher might come along and confirm your revelation, but you can get a fresh revelation for yourself.
Well, Abraham finally got it. And when he did, he changed from being that man who said, “Lord, accept my Ishmael,” to the man we read about in Romans, Chapter 4. Boy did Abraham change! Something happened to him. He got the revelation. There is One who isn’t bound by what you normally see happen, and the revelation of that One changed Abraham’s life.
Likewise the ministry of Jesus started with a woman who had a fresh revelation from God. Mary had a child without a man. That angel came to Mary and said, “Mary, you are highly favored among women. The Lord is with you,” and told her the story of what would happen. Mary accepted it in faith.
What do you think would happen to you once you get a fresh revelation? You’ll get your eyes off of “him,” get your eyes off of “her,” get your eyes off of “them,” and get your eyes on the Word of God. You’ll have a fresh revelation and, like Abraham, your life will change. That revelation will cause the promise to come to pass.
Scripture Reference: Psalm 25:4-5
