SCRIPTURE READING: 2 KINGS 9: 1-13
FOCUS: “And when he came, behold, the captains of the host were sitting; and he said, I have an errand to thee, O captain. And Jehu said, Unto which of all us? And he said, To thee, O captain.” (2 Kings 9: 5)
MEMORY VERSE: “The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.” (Psalm 16: 5)
It is instructive to observe that when the trainee prophet that was sent by Elisha came to the place where Jehu was, there were several captains seated. Jehu was not the only captain in the room. He was not the only warrior in the room. There were men like him who had the same qualifications he had, but in the end, he was anointed as king. There were several men who were deemed qualified, but Jehu’s name was on the kingship.
Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: your kingship will have your name on it. Your congratulations will have your name on it. Your doors and gates will have your name on them. Your opportunities will come with your name on them. Your crown will have your name on it; your throne will have your name on it. Your breakthrough will have your name on it. Your elevation will have your name on it. Your blessings will have your name on them.
Jehu did not need to compete with anyone for his throne, because it had his name on it. Despite the fact that others were as qualified, his portion was reserved for him. Hear me as I hear the Lord: no man will be able to compete for your place. No man will take your place; no man will take your portion; your portion will not be diverted to another; no matter how stiff the competition is, you will not lose your place to another man.
If Jesus has made provision for your kingship and royalty, no man can take it away. No man shall take your place. No man will possess your portion. No man will take over the territory that has your name on it. No man will take over the signs and wonders that have your name on it. Nobody will possess what the Lord designed for you to possess. No man, no matter how qualified, will cause you to become a stranger and a byword.
The days of losing your portion to others, is over. Henceforth, no man shall take your place.
