BEFORE THE END
“And as they were going down to the end of the city, Samuel said to Saul… stand thou still a while, that I may shew thee the word of God.”
(1 Samuel 9: 27)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
As Saul and Samuel approached the end of the city, Samuel unveiled the word of the Lord to Saul. They were close to the end of the city, and Samuel unveiled the good news of Saul’s elevation. Before the end of the city, Saul enjoyed a spectacular manifestation. Before the end, Saul stepped into a new level.
Friend, hear God’s word of grace: before the end, you will be distinguished. There will be no end until you step into your divinely ordained manifestation. No chapter will be closed until you step into the splendour and glory that God designed for you. No opportunity will end until you make the most of it. Before the year ends, you will step into your next level; before any process is concluded, God will cause it to work in your favour.
There will be no conclusion until you are favoured; there will be no end until you are given your rightful place; there will be no decision until a decision is taken in your favour; there will be no end until you receive your portion; nothing will end except God has turned it around to work for your good.
What looked like the end of the road for Saul was a new beginning in the journey of Kingship. God says, when it seems that you have come to the end of the road, a new journey will begin and it will work in your favour.
God is the author and the finisher of our faith. Until He says it is finished, no man can close your chapter. Get set: before it ends, you will smile again.
Psalm 90 vs. 14 sums it up: “O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.”
Pray With Me: Lord, no chapter in 2016 will be closed until I step into my Exceeding Expansion, in Jesus’ name!
