Topic: Wait For The Process [TREM Devotional 25 April 2019]
“David was thirty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years.” 2 Samuel 5:4 KJV
David became anointed but Saul would not allow him to sit on the throne. Have you been there? The time of the anointing is not the time for the sitting. David did not sit on the throne until he was thirty. You may be anointed today but it may take longer for the product to come out. It is a process! But many people don’t wait for that process.
Has God made a promise to you? Yes! But it is in the process of time. In the early days of this commission when it had no beauty that anyone should desire it, there were many things God said about the ministry of TREM that I even found very difficult to believe then. But what did we do? We decided to do what we could faithfully. Whatever our hands found to do, we did it faithfully, serving God with all our hearts. Then, we began to see God unfold His plans step by step. And every step by a miracle. You see, God will only tell you where you are going. He won’t tell you the challenges; because if He told you the challenges, you would run away.
David was anointed but Saul would not allow him to sit on the throne. If God has anointed you and there is a ‘Saul’ that is trying to stop you, let him have the throne. It is just a matter of time, he will surely come down. I decree that every ‘Saul’ in your life is coming down. He is an illegal occupier of your throne and a usurper of authority. Therefore, he must come down. When you notice any ‘Saul’ that is hindering what God has ordained, all you need do is to just stay clear. After all, you did not ordain yourself nor did you anoint yourself. It is God who decided to choose you. He saw you in your weakness and shortcomings and called you. He paid the price! And so, if He has paid the price for your redemption, get ready; because He will ensure that every ‘Saul’ in your life is dethroned.
