The Call Of Distinction

3rd August 2022

Scripture Reading: 2 Kings 9: 1-13

Focus

“And he arose, and went into the house; and he poured the oil on his head, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I have anointed thee king over the people of the LORD, even over Israel.” (2 Kings 9: 6)

It is instructive to observe that the trainee prophet who anointed Jehu was not the only trainee prophet in Israel. There were other trainee prophets who had received a call to join the school of the prophets. Notice that receiving the general call to join the school of the prophets, this particular trainee prophet also got a call that no one else got. He got a call to go and anoint a king. He got a call to the place of distinction.

Friend, I pray for you: may you receive that call that will put you in the place of distinction. May you receive that call that will position you ahead of your contemporaries. May you receive that opportunity that will cause you to excel more than people around you. May you receive that call that will position you in the place of relevance. May you receive that call that will cause you to be distinguished ahead of your peers.

Hear me as I hear the Lord: in this season, God is causing you to receive that call that will reward you with ten years’ results in one day. You will receive that call that will give you uncommon results that even your superiors have never received. You will get that opportunity that will open mega doors and gates you do not qualify for. You will receive that opportunity that will make you the envy of your contemporaries.

Did you realize that nothing was mentioned as a qualification that led Elisha to send that trainee prophet to go and anoint a king? So it was not ability; it was all a case of favour and divine sovereignty. Hear me as I hear the Lord: may you receive the kind of favour that will give you what has not been given to people around you. May you receive favours that will shorten your journey to the top. May you receive favour for distinction.

Again, I pray for you: may you not be a spectator as others are called into greatness and relevance. May you be the one to be distinguished as others watch.

Declaration

I receive favour that will distinguish me; I receive that call that will place me ahead, in Jesus’ name!
