Topic: Speed 2 [Friday March 3, 2017]
“Seven years old was Jehoash when he began to reign” (2 Kings 11:21).
Group 4: No, I didn’t make a mistake and my counting skill remains very good. I deliberately jumped to the fourth because I will be focusing more on the third. The fourth is a very rare group. Less than one percent of the world population is in this group. They get their major breakthrough before or by eighteen years of age. That is, in the morning of their lives. Jehoash is a good example. He became the king over the greatest kingdom on earth then at age seven.
The sad thing about Jehoash, however, is that he blew his opportunity. Some people get their breakthrough early enough but lose it in the evening. Young people, don’t you know God can make you great early in life? Even at age eleven, God can start with you.
The altar of God will produce people who will get major breakthroughs in the morning of their lives. You will not raise children that will give you shame. The Lord will give you Abigails for children. (Abigail means joy of the father, and by extension, of the parents.)
Group 3: In this group are the people who record at the least a major achievement between the afternoon and evening seasons of their lives. In the book of Isaiah, it is written, “A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time.”
To hasten means to speed up. God understands times and seasons. God will give you speed so that your afternoon and evening will not pass without notice. God will give speed to your destiny.
WORD OF WISDOM: Age has nothing to do with rulership.
PRAYER/CONFESSION: Father, give speed to my destiny, in Jesus name. O LORD, give me Abigails for children. Whatever I have now, I will not lose at my night season in Jesus name. Amen!
