Unexpected Thrones

Fruitful Turbulence

1st October 2020

Scripture Reading: John 5: 1-11


“For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.” (John 5: 4)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of that Angel that came to the pool of Bethesda at certain seasons to trouble the waters, and anyone who first went into the water was made whole. The Angel caused ‘trouble’ in the waters, and that ‘trouble’ worked out healing in the life of anyone who stepped into the water. It was a case of turbulence that birthed newness; it was a case of turbulence that birthed good news.

Friend, as the last quarter of 2020 begins, hear me as I hear the Lord: every turbulence around you will work out for your good. Every trouble you have had to deal with will birth a new season of good news in your life. Every negativity you did not bargain for that is currently happening around you will open new doors of greatness and divine visitation in your life. Every storm in your waters will be a harbinger of your next testimony.

At a time when an undiscerning person would have seen mere turbulence in the waters, those who understood that there was an angel behind the scenes took advantage of the moment and broke out of their troubles. Let the eyes of your understanding be opened to see the finger of God in the midst of the storms around you. Let the eyes of your spirit man be opened to see the gates that are unlocked for you in the midst of crisis.

Get set: every turbulent circumstance is bringing cleansing to your life. Every economic turbulence in your nation or city is birthing a new wave of increase and advancement for you. Every turbulent policy will carry you to the top. Every turbulence you are currently facing in your family, marriage, ministry, career, business, etc will lift you to higher realms in destiny.

The same God that caused a troubling of waters to become the end of bad news and the beginning of good news shall cause every trouble around you to mark the beginning of good news that will blow your mind.


Every turbulence around me shall birth a new season of good news, in Jesus’ name!
