rev·e·la·tion ˌ revəˈlāSH(ə)n/ noun
a surprising and previously unknown fact, especially one that is made known in a dramatic way.
the divine or supernatural disclosure to humans of something relating to human existence or the world.
Oprah Winfrey has popularized "Aha! Moments." There is a whole section of her website that is dedicated to these moments. If you are unfamiliar with "Aha! Moments," they are considered a moment of insight or discovery. I would refer them to revelations. Have you ever experienced a revelation about your life or a loved one? Did God reveal something to you? Do you ever just have a gut feeling about something? It's revelation. I knew that I was going to marry my husband within months of dating him. I listened to the voice. I didn't say anything or move on that notion. I waited patiently for that word to manifest. It did three years later. Be patient. Pay attention. Listen closely. Trust your instincts. Trust the revelation.
