He said, “O Lord, the God of my master Abraham, please grant me success today, and show lovingkindness to my master Abraham. Behold, I am standing by the spring, and the daughters of the men of the city are coming out to draw water;
now may it be that the girl to whom I say, ‘Please let down your jar so that I may drink,’ and who answers, ‘Drink, and I will water your camels also’—may she be the one whom You have appointed for Your servant Isaac; and by this I will know that You have shown lovingkindness to my master.
Before he had finished praying behold, Rebekah came out with her jar on her shoulder.
Now when she had finished giving him a drink, she said, “I will draw also for your camels until they have finished drinking.”
Meanwhile, the man was gazing at her in silence, to know whether the Lord had made his journey successful or not.
and said, “Whose daughter are you?  She said to him, “I am the daughter of Bethuel, the son of Milcah, whom she bore to Nahor.”
26 Then the man bowed low and worshiped the Lord.
27 He said, “Blessed be the Lord, the God of my master Abraham, who has not forsaken His lovingkindness and His truth toward my master; as for me, the Lord has guided me in the way to the house of my master’s brothers.”
Genesis 44:17-27

When I committed my life to Jesus, I used my great desire to encourage and empower others; I did not know it was even a calling, or a grace. My desire was to build people from the oppression and depression they were trapped in. So I fell in love with the word of God because it gave me a resource, and my faith became a tool, because I believed God. In a short time, I grew an immense desire to free people from suffering, simply because I am really sensible to suffering. God has enlarged my vision now where I still desire to encourage and empower people (not only Christians) but God has given me revelation and discernment to see people’s potential and lead them to their purpose.

Divine connections are relationships that God has pre-ordained for us. And yes there are some from God, and some which come from Satan to distract us from his perfect will.

God’s intentions are for these relationships to direct us to our destiny and prosper us. When God wants to prosper us, He sends the right people into our lives.

God has blessed me with many who have poured into my life, and I have learned from an early age to absorb from others, especially people who I admire. And I have given myself away to others without them even asking. It is because I know who I am, but I have very harshly learned that people do not value who is in their life or why- they simply use others.

But God is not like people, he does not toss us like the carton of orange juice we throw away after we are done. People use us and when they are done, they leave us. For example, some people use others for companionship, for fun, for money, for comfort, and other selfish reasons.

I am grateful for spiritual leaders, those who lift me in prayer and watch for my soul, and others who I absorb wisdom and skills from. Since we are on the subject, stay planted in the church where God placed you, until He moves you, do not move. You might lose your blessing.

I yearn for purpose. To live out my calling. And I have been struggling with loneliness for a few months now, and until recently God revealed to me why. I feel like I am trapped inside of a girl who is no longer the same, and I need people with my mind to speak to and to work with. I have a million problems but I am not downtrodden by them, I am overwhelmed by my desire to fulfill my purpose in this life.

The Lord impregnated me with a dream, a dream I ran from for years but in 2015 I finally told God yes. When God revealed this to me, i quickly understood why I feel out of place, bored and uninterested in those around me- my interest is in the dream God placed in my heart. And from the looks of it, until God blesses me with relationships I will be on this journey with Holy Spirit, just Him and I, against the world.

Let’s pray:

Jehovah Jireh, my provider! God! I cry out to you, please send me, bring me, place, connect, link me up with people who are designed to grow with me, in this next stage of my life. Those associates, partnerships and friendships, who will be assets to my life, and not liabilities or empty vessels with no return. I pray for those who are in such a place as me, and I pray that you help us and instruct us to be of mutual help to each other, may we be the people who you have called us to be. May we know who our comrades and companions are, and may we know who to build cohorts with. Teach us the path to instruction for the sake of our destinies, in Jesus name, I pray, Amen.
