Divine Surprises

Text: Isaiah 64:1-5

Verse 3-For when you did awesome  things that we did not expect, you came down, and the mountains trembled  before you.

*Divine surprises occur when God does the unexpected; when He does things that you were not looking for

*when God does exceedingly abundantly above your expectation; exceeding what you have asked for or imagined-Eph 3:20

*When he does things that according to 1 Sam3:11 will make the ear of the hearer to tingle (astonishing things)

*When  He fills your life with undeniable wonders and amazement

*Divine surprises comes when God remembers a group of people or a person

* Comes as a result of God flooding your life with His awesome presence

*Causes the name of the Lord to be known and acknowledged in your life as in the case of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego- Daniel 3:28-29 Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel  and rescued  his servants! They trusted  in him and defied the king’s command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.    Therefore I decree  that the people of any nation or language who say anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego be cut into pieces and their houses be turned into piles of rubble,  for no other god can save  in this way.”

*Causes all your enemies to bow before your God

*Divine surprise is two edged. When God acts on behalf of the ones He loves then it is a pleasant surprise but for His enemies in the lives of those He loves, it will become an unpleasant surprise

*This year of undeniable wonder  is your season of pleasant surprises if only you can pray by faith, He will exceed every human expectations in your life including your own expectation of your self
