WHEN HISTORY SPEAKS
“When thou art departed from me to day, then thou shalt find two men by Rachel’s sepulchre in the border of Benjamin at Zelzah; and they will say unto thee, The asses which thou wentest to seek are found…”
(1 Samuel 10: 2)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
In our Focal Scripture, Samuel informed Saul about two men he would meet at Rachel’s sepulcher. Rachel was part of the history in Israel. She belonged to the past; she was a past history that was dead and forgotten; she was a history that had been buried and confined to the memory of Israel.
The men at Rachel’s sepulcher had good news of the recovery of the asses belonging to Saul’s father. The place of Rachel’s death became a landmark for good news. The dead and forgotten history represented by Rachel spoke in Saul’s favour. At Rachel’s sepulcher, instead of death, Saul found life. Saul’s history spoke in his favour.
Friend, hear God’s prophetic word: your history will speak for you. Something from your past is about to become a platform for good news in your life. Your past and forgotten efforts are about to bring you unexpected results; your past relationships are about to become harbingers of uncommon miracles and open doors. Things you may have forgotten in your past will soon arise and open a new, positive chapter in your life.
Things may have gone wrong in your past, but God is about to turn it around for good. The places that gave you pain will give you joy; the places where you were rejected will soon become places where you will be celebrated; the places in your past that remind you of how things went wrong are about to become landmarks for ceaseless celebrations.
Psalm 126: 1 says: “When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.”
Pray With Me: Lord, cause my past and my history to speak for me, in Jesus’ name!
