DEVOTIONAL “And the man of God said, Where fell it? And he shewed him the place. And he cut down a stick, and cast it in thither; and the iron did swim.”
(2 Kings 6: 6) That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today. When the sons of the prophets went to Jordan to cut down wood, one of them suffered the misfortune of losing his axe head. That trainee prophet suffered a setback and a disappointment; he faced a challenge that could scuttle his mission; he faced a huge embarrassment. When Elisha intervened, the axe head began to swim. The loss of the axe head attracted an uncommon miracle. The disappointment of the trainee prophet led to an uncommon manifestation of God’s power. That setback became a set up for a miracle. That misfortune ended in a miracle. Friend, every misfortune that comes your way will be a platform for your next miracle. Your disappointments will set the stage for blessings you didn't bargain for; your setbacks will set the stage for an uncommon manifestation of God’s power. Every embarrassment from the enemy will lead to Continuous Congratulations. Your story will not end in shame and disgrace; every disgrace the enemy plans for you will attract a miracle; every plan to bring you shame shall turn around and bring joy; every plan to disappoint you shall be God’s platform to take you to higher; for every negative experience, God will bring a positive compensation. Don’t let the enemy depress you on account of any misfortune. God is the script-writer of your life, and if He has started your story, He won’t let the enemy conclude it. Relax; that misfortune will become a miracle. Isaiah 61 vs. 7 sums it up: “For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.” Pray With Me: Lord, my misfortunes will be platforms for uncommon miracles, in Jesus’ name!
