From Battle To Kingship

Scripture Reading: 2 King 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)

At the moment when Elisha sent one of the sons of the prophets to go and anoint Jehu, there was a battle between Israel and some invaders. It was not by coincidence that Jehu was in the midst of his fellow captains when the son of the prophet arrived to anoint him. Jehu came to Ramothgilead to fight a battle, but it became the place of his anointing as king. The place of his attack became the place of his coronation.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: in the same places where you have been attacked, you are about to be crowned. Your place of attack is becoming a place of your promotion. The places where you faced opposition shall soon become the places where you will reign over those who opposed you. The place where men fought against you shall become a place where mega victories will manifest in your favour.

Hear me as I hear the Lord: every place of attack is turning to an object of laughter and celebration; every place of attack is becoming a place for your advancement; every place of battle is becoming a platform for your promotion; every place where men conspired against you shall become a place where you will be enthroned; every place where you suffered loss shall become a place for mega gains; God is turning your place of battles around.

The men who came against Israel in Ramothgilead did not know that they simply invited Jehu the captain to the place of his coronation. They thought they came to fight, but they simply transported the next king of Israel to the place of his anointing as King. Hear me as I hear the Lord: if they have gathered to fight against you, their gathering shall be for your lifting. Their gathering against you shall be a preparation for coronation.

Get ready to be crowned in the same places where men came against you. Get set to have your places of battle become places of coronation.

Declaration

My places of battle are becoming places of coronation, in Jesus’ name!
