Called Into Relevance

15th October 2020

Scripture Reading: 2 Kings 9: 1-13

Focus

“And Elisha the prophet called one of the children of the prophets, and said unto him, Gird up thy loins, and take this box of oil in thine hand, and go to Ramothgilead:” (2 Kings 9: 1)

In our Focal Scripture, Elisha called one of the sons of the prophets to go up to Ramoth Gilead and anoint Jehu as king. The word ‘called’ as used in that scripture comes from the Hebrew word ‘qara’; one of the meanings of ‘qara’ is ‘to become famous’. So it was one call that made a man famous. It was one call that distinguished the destiny of a man. It was one call that positioned that son of the prophet for greatness.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: you are about to receive that call that will make you relevant. You are receiving one unique opportunity with your name on it, and you will become famous instantly. God will cause you to come in contact with that announcement that will usher you into high places; God will cause you to be seen by that helper than will make your life easier than ever; you are receiving a unique call for greatness.

There would have been other sons of the prophets under Elisha, but this particular one in our Focal Scripture was chosen and preferred. There were possible rivals, but he was chosen and preferred. Hear me as I hear the Lord: you will receive that call that will cause you to be chosen and preferred. You will receive that call that will cause the spotlight to come on you. You will be chosen and preferred for high places.

That son of the prophet was called once, and the box of oil he was given to him to perform higher roles not meant for his cadre. Hear me as I hear the Lord: from one call, you shall have all you need; from one call, the results you have waited for shall come running towards you; one opportunity shall be enough to announce you; one client shall be enough to turn your story around; one show of favour will be enough to reposition you higher.

Get set to receive that one call that will usher you into relevance. Receive that one opportunity that will push you out of obscurity and into undeniable visibility.

Declaration

I receive that call that will make me relevant, in Jesus’ name!
