Scripture Reading: 2 Kings 9: 1-13


“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)

Our Focal Scripture captures that moment when one of the sons of the prophets anointed Jehu as king of Israel. This was one accomplishment that no other trainee prophet ever accomplished in scriptures. Kings were usually anointed by major prophets, but in this instance, which was an exception, a new king was anointed by a trainee prophet. A trainee prophet accomplished what no other trainee prophet accomplished.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: you will accomplish what no other person around you has accomplished. You will create new records that no other person has created. You will hit targets that people around you have never been able to hit. You will rise to heights that people from your background are yet to rise to. You will do exploits that are hitherto not known amongst your peers and contemporaries.

The name of this particular trainee prophet was not known, but his exploit was known. His name was not known, but what he accomplished rang a bell. Hear me as I hear the Lord: you may not even be known, but you will accomplish what will ring a bell in your generation. You may not have the appearance of one who deserves to accomplish great tasks, but through you, the Lord will cause mighty works to be made manifest.

Hear me as I hear the Lord: you will be counted amongst the first to ever occupy certain positions, soon. It will be said of you that you made huge profits that no one had ever made in your line of business. It will be said of you that you gained access to major doors and gates that people around you have never crossed. It will be said of you that you were the first to do major, uncommon exploits. Your accomplishments will be unprecedented.

Welcome to your new season of unprecedented exploits. Welcome to that new season where you will be the first to hit novel targets.


My accomplishments shall be unprecedented, in Jesus’ name!
