Spirit And Life Devotional: It’s Not By Ceremonies

Must read

[pull_quote_center]”Now when you arrive at that place, look there for Jehu the son of Jehoshaphat, the son of Nimshi, and go in and make him rise up from among his associates, and take him to an inner room.” II Kings 9:2 NKJV[/pull_quote_center]

The idea a lot of people have is that there’s got to be a kind of ceremony to signify that something great has occurred to them; they expect some kind of loud announcement; a spectacular sign; like a voice from heaven or something really amazing and out of this world: but God doesn’t always work that way!

Jehu was anointed in secret, in an inner room, without witnesses. Don’t disregard what God is doing in your life, or has done, just because it’s not happening as you expect it to; there’s no basis for comparison with someone else who you think has got the attention of everyone; don’t let people belittle your gifts, your purpose and your destiny just because they are uninformed about what happened in the secret place!

It’s time to arise and do exploits! The just shall live by faith and not by sight! “Look to Abraham your father, and to Sarah who bore you; for I called him alone, and blessed him and increased him.” It doesn’t matter if people do not appreciate you now; it doesn’t matter if they don’t perceive your greatness now; you just remain focused on Jesus; let Him order your steps every day; Jehu was not even anointed by Elisha himself or by some popular highly anointed man of God, they even referred to the guy that anointed him as a madman! But the moment that oil got on his head, it was done, Jehu was king and the anointing was as effective as at any other time! It’s your time to manifest! Arise! Shine! For your light is come and the glory of God is risen upon you!
