Speed Of The Spirit

No More Delays

Scripture Reading: Judges 16: 1-25


“And Elisha the prophet called one of the children of the prophets, and said unto him, Gird up thy loins, and take this box of oil in thine hand, and go to Ramothgilead:” (2 Kings 9: 1)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of that moment when Elisha sent one of the sons of the prophets to go to Ramothgilead to anoint Jehu. God had previously mandated Elijah to anoint Jehu as king, but Elijah didn’t. Towards the end of Elisha’s life time, he sent one of the sons of the prophets to anoint Jehu. Jehu’s elevation to kingship appeared stalled for several years, but in our Focal Scripture, it was reactivated and became a reality.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every delayed prophecy of your life is becoming your reality in this season. Every divine manifestation that has lingered for years is becoming your reality now. Every word of the Lord that has taken ages to manifest is manifesting soon. Every prayer you have made in time past that had no results/answers, the answers are coming forth right away. Your delayed elevation is coming forth soon.

Jehu was meant to be have been anointed by Elijah within the same period that he anointed Elisha, but Elisha took his place while Jehu was delayed. It may appear that others have gone ahead whilst you are delayed, but in this season, you are rising to your rightful place in destiny. You are taking your place on the throne. You are becoming all that God promised that you will become. The gates of your new season are open.

Hear me as I hear the Lord: your rising will no longer be delayed. Your greatness will no longer be postponed. Your congratulations will not be put off. Your celebration will not wait till another year. If God has said it, then it is coming to pass sooner than later. If God has said it, it will become your reality, and no demon of hell can stop it. It may have been delayed in time past but in this season, it will not more be delayed.

Welcome to your season of becoming. The time of your congratulations is now. Your rising will not be delayed.


The time of my congratulations is now; my rising will not be delayed, in Jesus’ name!
