Something Bigger

Something Bigger

9th January 2020

Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 10: 1-7


“Then Samuel took a vial of oil, and poured it upon his head, and kissed him, and said, Is it not because the LORD hath anointed thee to be captain over his inheritance?” (1 Samuel 10: 1)

Saul went in search of his father’s asses when he met Samuel and was taken through a journey that took him to the throne. He was searching for what was missing when a bigger offer came his way. He was searching for his father’s possessions when he came face to face with a new position he never bargained for. What he was looking for was small, but he found something bigger.

Friend, you may have made up your mind on what your expectations are for 2020, but hear me as I hear the Lord: something bigger is coming your way. Your portion shall be bigger than you planned for; your portion shall exceed your expectations; you shall gain what you never even bargained for; you shall have resources that will exceed your expectations; you shall meet bigger things you never imagined would come your way.

This year, you shall have bigger opportunities; you shall have bigger helpers of destiny; you shall have bigger open doors; you shall have bigger testimonies; you shall have bigger exploits; you shall have bigger divine encounters; you shall have bigger achievements; your level shall be higher than whatever you bargained for; your results shall be way beyond your calculations; you shall end up with more than you expected.

Saul was doing what was normal, and what he didn’t bargain for came to him. This year, it will be said that you were doing what you should do when something bigger and better came your way. You would be on your normal routine, and greatness that is not in your plans will come your way. You would be at your duty post, doing your best and your bit, when greatness you didn’t plan for will locate you and push you higher.

When Jehovah is involved, your package turns out bigger and better than you ever imagined. Get set for something bigger and better.


In 2020, something bigger is coming my way, in Jesus’ name!
