Thrones And Crowns

It Is Reserved

Scripture Reading: Mark 4: 35-41

Focus

“And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.” (Mark 4: 36)

When Jesus told His disciples that it was time to pass over to the other side, the next thing He did was to send the multitude away. So He spoke to His disciples about the journey to the other side while the multitude was still available. Notice that Jesus was not going to lose focus because a multitude was hanging around. He was not going to give the multitude information that was meant for disciples. Despite the multitude, what was meant for the disciples remained for them.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: no matter the multitude that shows up when it is time to cross over to the other side, you will still be chosen to cross over. No matter the multitude that shows up to compete for your portion, your portion will remain reserved for you. No matter the multitude that shows up to compete for your clients, opportunities, space, miracles, testimonies, etc., you will still have that which the Lord has for you.

I decree unto you: whatsoever the Lord has designed for you will remain for you. Your portion will not be diverted. Your portion will not be given to the multitude. Your portion will not be hijacked or stolen. Your job will not be given to another. No matter how many people that are looking for what you are looking for, you will not lose your portion. There may be multitudes, but the Lord still knows you by name.

Notice that there were disciples, and despite the multitude, Jesus considered them first and treated their matter differently. When you are a disciple, your matters will be treated differently. Your walk with God qualifies you for favours and mercies that others may not receive. Your walk with God will position you ahead of your rivals and competitors. Your walk with God will position you for special considerations that will place you ahead of others.

Don’t lose sleep because there is a multitude waiting to board the same ship that is meant for you. If God be for you, your seat in the ‘ship’ will be reserved.

Declaration

We might me many, but my matters will be treated with favour and mercy, in Jesus’ name!
