Scripture Reading: 1 SAMUEL 16: 1-14


“And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.” (1 Samuel 16: 12)

Prior to our Focal Scripture, Samuel had demanded that Jesse and his sons should be sanctified before showing up for the ‘sacrifice’ (see vs. 5). Sanctification amongst the Jews was a tedious process that involved being sprinkled with hyssop, placing one’s hands on an animal to confess sins, sacrifice of animals, etc. So Jesse and his sons went through the process of sanctification. They were subjected to a process.

Notice that when David showed up, the process of sanctification was not required of him. David showed up, and was immediately anointed as king. David did not go through what others went through. Processes were waived for David to take his portion. Processes were waived for David to emerge as king. Processes were waived to make David’s rising easier and faster. Processes were waived when it was David’s time and turn.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: processes will be waived for your sake. Processes will be waived for your rising. Processes will be waived for you to possess your portion. Processes will be removed for your sake. Processes will be waived for you to ascend to your next level. Processes will be waived for your congratulations. Processes will be waived to fast-track your next level. Processes that delay others will be waived for you.

David already lost some time given that Samuel had spent some time mourning over God’s rejection of Saul. David had also lost time because it would have taken a while to move from the bush to the location of his anointing as king. Because of the time you have lost, heaven will cause your rising to be hastened and fast-tracked. Processes around your expectations will be waived. Processes stalling your emergence will be waived.

God is in a hurry to fulfill His word concerning you. It may have been a long process for others, but the same processes that delayed others will be waived for you.



Processes will be waived for me; my emergence will not be delayed, in Jesus’ name!
