From Words To Evidence

21st August 2021

Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 10: 1-12


“3. Then shalt thou go on forward from thence, and thou shalt come to the plain of Tabor, and there shall meet thee three men going up to God to Bethel, one carrying three kids, and another carrying three loaves of bread, and another carrying a bottle of wine: 4. And they will salute thee, and give thee two loaves of bread; which thou shalt receive of their hands.” (1 Samuel 10: 3-4)

The men that Saul was to meet in our Focal Scripture were to salute him and give him loaves of bread. Saul had met men who simply had information about the recovered asses of his father. He had come in contact with men whose only contribution were mere words. Saul was to meet these three men in Tabor, who would give him what he did not buy for himself. Saul moved from receiving mere words to receiving evidence.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: you are moving from mere words to evidence. You are moving from prophecy to fulfillment of prophecy. You are moving from promises to tangible evidence. You are moving from ideas to results. You are moving from the place where all you have are expectations, to a place where your expectations will become your realities. You are rising above men with empty promises; God is sending you men who have what you need and are willing to give it to you.

Saul received the oil of kingship, and soon after, he began receiving gifts that were fitting for kings, freely, without begging for it. Hear me as I hear the Lord: in this season, God is sending you men who will give you what you need without you asking them for it. God is sending you helpers that will support you without you asking for their support. God is sending you men who have resources you need and are willing to give to you.

The season of meeting men who are empty handed, is over. The season of having to beg men endlessly before they give to you, is over. The season of meeting men who have nothing to offer, is over. God is strategically positioning the men you need on your pathway. You may not need to go looking for them, but they will come to you with what they have.

Get set to move from mere words to evidence. Get set to move from prophecy to fulfillment.


I move from words to evidence; I move from prophecy to fulfilment, in Jesus’ name!
