But Zadok the priest, and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and Nathan the prophet, and Shimei, and Rei, and the mighty men which belonged to David, were not with Adonijah.” (1 Kings 1: 8)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today. Before Solomon became King, there were attempts by Adonijah to take the throne. There was a circumstance that arose to scuttle Solomon’s rise to royalty. There was a hurdle before Solomon’s kingship. Solomon was young, and was not in a position to speak for himself. He was not in a position to fight for the throne.
In our Focal Scripture, some men refused to join Adonijah, and they later supported Solomon’s rise to the throne. Nathan the Prophet spoke to David on behalf of Solomon (see 1 Kings 1: 24-27); he took Solomon’s matter personal, and Solomon eventually possessed the throne that God already destined for him. Destiny helpers aided Solomon’s elevation.
Friend, this year, God will send you destiny helpers who will help you to achieve all you need to achieve. God will send you men who will help you rise to the top; God will send you men who will speak for you in high places; God will send you men who will build bridges that will connect you to your next level; God will send you men who will help you when you can’t help yourself.
Solomon did not ask for help from Nathan, but Nathan willingly helped Solomon. God says, in this year, men will help you even when you haven’t asked for their help; men will assist you even when you haven’t sought their assistance; men will speak for you even when you haven’t asked them to speak for you; God will cause you to receive unsolicited help.
God already ordained that Solomon would be king, and He brought men to make Solomon’s kingship a reality. For every plan God has for you this year, He will send you destiny helpers to make it possible.
Pray With Me: Lord, send me destiny helpers, in Jesus’ name!
