Their Efforts, Your Results

25th March 2019

Scripture Reading: 1 Samuel 1: 1-28


“And this man went up out of his city yearly to worship and to sacrifice unto the LORD of hosts in Shiloh. And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the priests of the LORD, were there.” (1 Samuel 1: 3)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of those annual trips that Elkanah undertook to Shiloh. It was on one of those trips that Hannah prayed and Eli spoke prophetically into her life and she got a miracle. Hannah participated in a trip that was at the instance of Elkanah, and she got a major result out of that trip in a matter of time. One man made the arrangements for the trip, but another got mega results out of it. Elkanah’s trips favoured Hannah.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: another man’s trip will favour you. You will reap from the efforts of others; you will get results from the arrangements that others made; you will hit your targets whilst riding on the wings of people who made all the efforts; you will be a major beneficiary of the ideas, visions, patronage, investments, etc that others made; others shall labour but you will enjoy the harvest and the favours.

In this season, get set: people you do not know will come up with ideas, policies, arrangements, suggestions, recommendations, etc that will work in your favour. They may not know how their efforts will work for you, and they really do not need to know: God will make it work for your good. God will cause men who are simply fulfilling their own agenda to take steps that will position you to fulfill your own destiny and assignment.

When Jehovah is involved, the efforts of others simply oil the wheels of your own successes and progress. When God is on your side, He uses men to help you accomplish your goals and hit your targets. When God takes charge of your destiny, He uses the efforts of other men as resources for your own results. When God is for you, others will labour but you will have the harvest.

Ask God to position men whose efforts will bring you results; ask God to strategically position men whose finances will flow in your direction; ask God to raise men who will oil the wheels of your successes and progress.


Men shall make efforts that will give me results, in Jesus’ name!
