God’s Specific Word to You

by | Nov 11, 2011 | Purpose & Identity

When Solomon had finished building the temple of the Lord…the Lord appeared to him a second time.…the Lord said to him… —1 Kings 9:1-3

God doesn’t always pay a second visit to those to whom He has spoken before. He doesn’t have to; He doesn’t need to. What is it like when He does?

It will be very real, just as real as the first time. When God speaks a second time in the manner I refer—when He came to Jonah, to Abraham, to Solomon, and as when He came to Jacob, it would have been a very real experience.

It confirms what God said the first time. Sometimes a person needs to hear the same thing again. When God came to Abraham the second time, He said the same thing as before.

What does it mean then when you are one of those to whom God comes a second time and when He speaks powerfully again?

It means four things:

1. God cares a lot.

2. He wasn’t speaking aimlessly the first time.

3. You are special. You are earmarked for something special.

4. He wants you to believe what He said the first time and never forget it.

So when God speaks a second time, it’s because you especially need to hear Him speak to get you through what lies ahead. I can tell you this: if you want God to speak to you a second time—if that’s what you need—that’s what you will get.
