Memorise:
He raiseth up the poor out of the
dust, and lifteth the needy out of
the dunghill;
Psalm 113:7
Read: Numbers 11:24-29
24 And Moses went out, and told
the people the words of the LORD,
and gathered the seventy men of
the elders of the people, and set
them round about the tabernacle.
25 And the LORD came down in a
cloud, and spake unto him, and
took of the spirit that was upon
him, and gave it unto the seventy
elders: and it came to pass, that,
when the spirit rested upon them,
they prophesied, and did not
cease.
26 But there remained two of the
men in the camp, the name of the
one was Eldad, and the name of
the other Medad: and the spirit
rested upon them; and they were
of them that were written, but
went not out unto the tabernacle:
and they prophesied in the camp.
27 And there ran a young man,
and told Moses, and said, Eldad
and Medad do prophesy in the
camp.
28 And Joshua the son of Nun, the
servant of Moses, one of his young
men, answered and said, My lord
Moses, forbid them.
29 And Moses said unto him,
Enviest thou for my sake? would
God that all the LORD’S people
were prophets, and that the LORD
would put his spirit upon them!

Message
Do you know that prayer gives
specific directions for your
blessings to locate you? This it
does in addition to compelling
your unwilling helpers and making
things happen for you in situations
of despair. People lose their
blessings when their desired
packages do not meet them where
God expects them to be. This story
was told of some women who had
been trusting God for the fruit of
the womb. When God decided to
answer them, an angel was sent by
God to bring them their babies. On
arrival at the church, the angel
began to give each of them their
babies. But on that day, a
particular sister who was one of
them failed to show up in church.
The angel looked for her
everywhere within the church but
could not find her, so the angel
returned with her baby. The truth
is: distance is not a limitation in
the spiritual realm. It is also not
as if the angel could not search for
her wherever she was on the face
of the earth. It is just that certain
blessings are meant to locate you
at a particular place.
God has specific places where
specific blessings would be
delivered to you. The day God
chooses to mention the cases of
some people in order to put an
end to a nagging problem, they
would give reasons for not
attending a meeting like our
monthly Holy Ghost service. In
receiving your blessing, you must
be at the right place at the right
time. In Acts 9:10-18, because
Saul prayed, his helper was given
specific details regarding where to
deliver his help. His blessing was
directed by prayer and so it could
not but locate him. Sometimes
some blessings come with no
names attached. This means that
anyone who can first key into it
becomes its owner. However, when
you pray, even when there are
blessings with no names attached,
your name will be attached to it
and it will surely locate you. If you
know how to pray, your location
may not be too important as your
blessing will definitely locate you
where you are. Eldad and Medad
must have been praying a lot for
their blessing to have reached
them even outside the tabernacle
(Numbers 11:24-29).
Key Point:
Prayer is a bridge that connects
your blessing to your location.
