Scripture Reading: 1 KINGS 1: 32-49


“The king also said unto them, Take with you the servants of your lord, and cause Solomon my son to ride upon mine own mule, and bring him down to Gihon:” (1 Kings 1: 33)

In our Focal Scripture, in order that Solomon would be anointed as king in Gihon, David ordered that Solomon be made to ride on his mule. One significant fact about mules, according to animal scientists, is that they have better balance than horses. Mules are simply more surefooted. So, mules are not only speedy; they also have balance in their movement, which protects the person being carried. So the mule has speed with stability.

Friend, go and announce to those who imagine that you only have speed: you do not only have speed, but that speed will come with stability. You will not only move fast, but you will not miss your steps. You will move fast in destiny without falling off a cliff. You will move fast without losing your place. You will move fast without going down. You will rise fast without falling. You will enjoy the blessing of speed with stability.

Solomon was about to be anointed as king, and David commanded that he be given a movement with speed and stability. He was going to enter into his new season with speed and stability. Hear me as I hear the Lord: you are entering your new season with speed and stability. You are arriving your higher levels with speed and stability. It will never be said that you fell on your way to the thrones and crowns God destined for you.

I pray for you: it will never be said that you were moving fast in destiny and suddenly fell in the course of your advancement. It will never be said that your journey to the top ended on the way. It will never be said that your rising and advancement was followed by a fall. Your movement will not be unstable. As God causes you to rise, you will rise and remain risen. The divine speed that God releases to you will not cause a fall.

Welcome to that season where your speed will be with stability. Welcome to that season where you will not fall as you move.


I have speed with stability; I will not fall, in Jesus’ name!
