In our Focal Scripture, Samuel told Saul about the two men that he would meet by (beside) Rachel’s sepulcher. Rachel was the mother of Benjamin. She died at the birth of Benjamin. So her sepulcher was a reminder of past pain for Saul who was of the tribe of Benjamin. Notice that at that sepulcher, Saul was to get the information that his father’s asses had been found. At the place of his pain, the good news was waiting for him.
Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: in the places where you faced pain in the past, good news shall be waiting for you. Your places of rejection shall become places where you will be accepted and celebrated. Your places of disappointment will become places of your lifting; the places of your ridicule will become places of your enthronement; the places of your reduction will be places for your increase and multiplication.
The last time that Rachel’s sepulcher was mentioned, it was for a funeral of a woman who had barely been delivered of her second son. This time, for Saul, it was for the good news of the recovery of his father’s asses. The cycle of bad news was reversed and converted for good news. Get set: there shall be a conversion of your downtimes into celebration times. Your good news is coming from your ‘sepulchres’.
God is making a divine exchange in the matters of your life. For shame, you shall have joy; for mourning, you shall have celebration; for reduction, you shall have increase; for stagnation, you shall have divine speed; for access denied, you shall have access granted; for bad health in the past, you shall have divine health; for losses in time past, there shall be gains you did not work for; for every sepulcher, good news awaits you.
God is too big to fail you; God is too big to merely humour you with His promises. If there be a sepulchre from your past, it shall become signposts for good news.
