“And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them…”
(1 Samuel 10: 6)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
Before Saul was unveiled as King, Prophet Samuel announced that Saul would prophesy with the prophets. Saul was to prophesy when his kingship was yet to be made known to Israel. He needed to prophesy when his next level was yet to manifest; he prophesied when there was no throne yet.
To prophesy is to speak the mind of God; to prophesy is to say what God is saying or what God said. So, Saul spoke mind of God before his kingship was made manifest by God. He spoke God’s word, he said what God was saying, and his kingship eventually became an outstanding reality.
Friend, as you run your race this year, do yourself a favour: prophesy. Speak the mind of God; speak God’s word. Say what God is saying; say what God has said; speak words that are in line with God’s intention concerning you; search the scriptures and find words concerning you, and when you find them, speak them. Don’t just speak what you see at the moment; speak what you want to see; speak the future; speak life.
Everyone in Israel was not prophesying when Saul had to prophesy. Those prophesying may have been in the minority, but Saul prophesied. You might find yourself in the minority if you are speaking the mind of God, but don’t let it deter you. Everyone around you may be speaking about the hopelessness that abounds, but don’t let that stop you.
Saul may have been in the minority whilst speaking the mind of God, but in a matter of time, he reigned over the majority that did not speak God’s mind. If you keep speaking the mind of God, soon, you will reign over those who are not speaking it.
Pray With Me: Lord, I choose to speak Your word all year long, in Jesus’ name!
