Speed Of The Spirit

The Speed Lane

3rd January 2021

Scripture Reading: Mark 7: 31-37


“And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain.”

In our Focal Scripture, following Jesus’ proclamation of Ephphatha, the ears of the deaf man were opened straightway. The word ‘straightway’ as used in that scripture conveys a sense of immediacy. So it was a miracle that happened immediately. The divine release that came the way of that deaf and dumb fellow came without delays. It was a divine intervention that came with speed, with no measure of delays.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: in this New Year, your life is transited from the slow lane to the speed lane. Your ephphatha experience shall come with divine speed. Your ephphatha experience shall break the power of delays and stagnation. Yours shall be a year where everything will happen fast and happen at the same time. Yours shall be called a movement laced with speedy achievements. It’s your new season of speed unlimited.

This year, the power of delay is broken over your life. Your advancement shall not be delayed. Your elevation shall not be delayed. Your miracles shall not be delayed. Your fruitfulness shall not be delayed. Your open gates shall not be delayed. Your opportunities shall not be delayed. Your helpers shall not be delayed. Your divine provision shall not be delayed. Your fulfillment of prophecy shall not be delayed.

Jesus showed up, and it didn’t matter how long dumbness and deafness had lasted; the solution came immediately. Jesus declared ephphatha, and a long standing case of negativity gave way immediately. As you embrace God’s decree of ephphatha, long standing negativities will bow, stubborn issues will give way, and every satanic siege shall be broken into pieces.

Get set: every delay and stagnation is broken. Your gates are open. Your life is transited to a realm of divine speed.


I am transited from the slow lane to the speed lane in destiny, in Jesus’ name!
