“…Samuel said to Saul, Bid the Servant pass on before us, (and he passed on) but stand thou still a while, that I may shew thee the Word of God”. (1 Samuel 9 vs 27). That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional Today.
In Today’s Focal Scripture, Samuel instructed Saul to allow his servant to move ahead of them. Ordinarily, servants are meant to stand behind their masters especially in the Jewish mileu. It seemed a bit out of place for the Servant to go ahead of the Master, but that was what Samuel instructed the servant to do. Literally, the servant took some steps ahead of Saul. For a moment, Saul was behind his servant. It seemed that as far as that Journey was concerned, Saul’s servant had ‘overtaken’ him.
Notice carefully, the reason why Saul’s servant was asked to move ahead was for Samuel to find a most personal and solemn opportunity to show Saul the Word of God concerning his Kingship. Saul’s delay was because royalty beckoned.
Friend, have you ever come to that point in life where it seems that ‘servants’ have gone ahead of you? Have you come to that point where people who are less intelligent and less competent have all moved ahead of you? Do you think that your juniors and subordinates have “overtaken” you in the race of destiny. Do you feel that your mates and contemporaries are doing much better than you?
Beloved, hear God’s Word to you: When it seems you’ve been overtaken, God is about to show forth something glorious about your life. Your delay is just Divine preparation for your Unrivalled throne. Don’t despair, they were allowed to pass you so that you alone can have a huge moment with Divinity; and they will be shocked that the same place they passed and neglected had become your goldmine!
Its not a Delay; Its only a Divine Preparation for Unrivalled Royalty!
Pray with me, “Lord, I believe that its not a delay,its a preparation for Unrivalled Royalty”.
Have a Lovely Thursday!
This November, You will BLOSSOM BEYOND BORDERS in Jesus name!
