“And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them,
and shalt be turned into another man.”
(1 Samuel 10: 6)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
As Saul was on the way to becoming the first king of Israel, one major prerequisite
he needed was for him to become another man. Saul was not about to sit on the throne
without major changes; he embraced change before he embraced the throne; he changed
before his position changed. Something in Saul changed before his level changed.
Friend, as you expect change in your status/circumstances, God expects you to change
from within; make positive changes in your character/behaviour before your next
level manifests; God expects your attitudes to change for the better as you desire
your portion this year; He expects your understanding to improve as you get set to
enjoy a glorious year.
As your next level beckons, let prayerlessness give way to prayerfulness, let
inconsistency give way to consistency, let incompetence give way to competence, let
laxity and procrastination give way to prompt service, let your imperfections give
way for perfection, and let your weaknesses be exchanged with strength.
The Saul who became king was Saul who became another man; it wasn’t the old version
of Saul that sat on the throne; it was his new version. Your next level wants a
better version of you; if you remain the same, you might be so close to your next
level without getting into it.
Become another man, be a better version of yourself, even where you have done well,
still improve and God will cause you to sit on your throne.
Romans 12 vs. 2 says: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by
the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and
perfect, will of God.”
Pray With Me: Lord, help me to become a better person, in Jesus’ name!
