“6. …he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the LORD’S anointed is before him.
7. But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him…” (1 Samuel 16: 6-7)
When Samuel saw Eliab, he proclaimed that Eliab was the Lord’s anointed. Samuel saw the physical attributes of Eliab, and he began to prophesy that Eliab was the man that God had chosen. Samuel was in an error that had the potential to deny David of what God had packaged for him. Samuel was on the verge of diverting what was meant for David.
As Samuel ruminated on the wrong choice he was about to make, God interrupted him and told him not to anoint Eliab. God interrupted the diversion of what was meant for David. God saw that David’s portion was about to be given to another, and He halted Samuel; God ensured that David’s portion was protected in David’s absence.
Friend, God will interrupt men in order to favour you. Every Eliab that wants to take your portion, today, I decree divine interruption; every word that is favouring the Eliabs of this world, may such words be interrupted; every policy that has arisen to allot your portion to another, I truncate it by the word of the Lord; I speak against every diversion of your divine inheritance.
Eliab had the right looks and right qualifications, but had the wrong heart and was not the chosen one. Eliab looked good enough to hoodwink Samuel, but God was on hand to interrupt his rising. It doesn’t matter if your ‘Eliab’ is more qualified than you or better positioned than you; God will stop them from taking your place.
Today, get in the place of prayer and command every word that is favouring the ‘Eliabs’ of this world to be interrupted. Ask God to truncate every plan or policy that will empower men to take your place.
Psalm 16: 5 says: “The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.”
*Declare With Me: No ‘Eliab’ will take my place; there shall be no diversion of my portion, in Jesus’ name! Amen.
