Scripture Reading: 1 KINGS 17: 1-16


“And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.” (1 Kings 17: 4)

In our Focal Scripture, God told Elijah that He had commanded the ravens to feed him in the brook where God would have him stay. One major distinctive feature of ravens is their speed. A raven is a fast bird. God needed to supply food to His servant, and He chose a bird that would come quickly. Elijah’s supply came with speed. His divine intervention came with speed. What Elijah needed was supplied speedily. His results came with speed.

Friend, I decree over your life: The Lord is sending you the ministry of ravens. In this season, your results will come speedily. Your elevation will come speedily. Your congratulations will come speedily. The new doors and gates that heaven is opening for you, will be opened speedily. The helpers you need will locate you speedily. The divine intervention you seek will come speedily. The matters of your life will be attended to speedily.

Because of the famine that Elijah proclaimed, there was need for him to be fed speedily. The situation was not such that needed any delays. Delays would have been harmful to him. Today, I pray for you: your results will not take time. Your expectations will not take time. Your good news will not take time. Your favour will not take time. The desires of your heart will not be delayed. The prayers you have made will receive speedy answers.

The chains of delay are broken over your life forever. The chains of stagnation are broken. The Lord is migrating your life from the slow lane to the fast lane. The Lord is fast-tracking your new season. The same things that were delayed in time past will come to you speedily. The same results that took time in time past will take grace in this season. In the same places where you were once delayed, receive the blessing of divine speed.

Your days of delay have ended. Your season of divine speed has just begun.


I break out of every chain of delay; I move with divine speed, in Jesus’ name!
