Streams of Joy Devotional today : WHEN SERVANTS OVERTAKE


“…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: 27)

That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.

In our Focal Scripture, Samuel instructed Saul to tell his servant to pass on ahead of them. Servants moved behind their masters in Old Testament times; but by Samuel’s instruction, the servant was meant to overtake both Saul and Samuel. Samuel’s instruction created an awkward scenario where a servant was ahead of his master.

Saul’s servant passed on ahead of them because Samuel wanted to show God’s Word to Saul. When a less qualified servant moved ahead of Saul, it was because something greater was about to be unveiled in Saul’s life. Saul’s servant overtook him so that God could unveil Saul’s kingship.

Friend, when the ‘servants’ of this world move ahead of you in life, always remember that there is something new that God wants to show you. When people who are not as qualified as you begin to move ahead of you, don’t despair, there is something new in your life that God is about to unveil. When it seems that your subordinates are fast becoming your superiors, don’t lose your confidence; God is at work in you.

They overtook you so that your next level of greatness can be made manifest. They overtook you so that God will show you to your generation. They overtook you so that you can step into a new, higher level; they overtook you so that something special and supernatural can be made manifest in you. They overtook you so that you can step into your season of Exceeding Expansion.

Don’t lose sleep on account of the servants who are currently ahead of you. If God be for you, there will be a showing that the servants won’t be part of.

Pray With Me: Lord, when servants overtake me, show me a new thing, in Jesus’ name!
