A PEEP INTO THE FUTURE
“And he had two wives; the name of the one was Hannah…”
(1 Samuel 1: 2)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
Hannah lived in the dispensation of the law, when grace was yet to be poured out in its fullness. ‘Hannah’ means ‘Grace’. She lived under the law, but her name was ‘Grace’. She was a peep into God’s agenda for the future. If one wanted to know what God was planning, one only needed to look into Hannah’s life.
Hannah became a representation of the future that others were yet to see; she was a representation of the next level that others were still praying for and anticipating. Before others got a taste of grace, Hannah already began to enjoy grace; she got it ahead of others; the future of others was her present reality.
Friend, hear God’s prophetic word: you will get your portion ahead of others; before others get to the peak, you will get there; before others hit their target, you would have hit yours; you will get your next level before others get theirs; you will rise higher ahead of others; what others dream about will become your reality; what others hope for in their tomorrow will meet you in your today.
Hannah’s experience of grace was a case of early satisfaction. She didn’t wait for what others waited for. God says, others may wait for long, but you won’t have to wait for so long; others may have their hopes and expectations delayed, but yours will come early; for others, it may be a future, but for you, it shall be your present experience.
Ask God to grant you the grace to be a peep into the future that others are expecting. Ask God to cause the future of others to be your present reality.
Psalm 90 vs. 14 says: “O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.”
Pray With Me: Lord, may my life be a peep into the future that others are expecting, in Jesus’ name!
