TREM Devotional 28 May 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – It Is Not Your Lot
TOPIC: It Is Not Your Lot
‘’Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge in every place.’’ 2 Corinthians 2:14 KJV
Today, I see Christians who just accept the challenges of their life as their lot and rather than grow restless and break off the yoke, they sit contentedly in that position and just give lame excuses saying: ‘’oh that is my lot.’’ Beloved, poverty is not your lot, childlessness is not your lot, and sickness is not your lot. You can break free from it today, but only when you become restless.
This is the time to push the table aside and let the devil know that you are not going to take ‘no’ for an answer. The devil is a liar, he never gives up easily, but you have all that it takes to bring him to submission. All you need to do is enforce the victory of the cross. When Jesus rose up, He declared: ‘’all authority in heaven and on earth has been given unto me, go therefore…’’ In other words, go in the strength of the authority that has been delegated to you. You have the name of Jesus, you have the blood and you have the Word. You have everything that you need to enforce the defeat of the devil.
The scripture reminds us that God would always bring us to the place of triumph or victory in all our battles of life and also make known or advertise the presence and knowledge of Christ in every place. In other words, the victories we receive through Christ makes Him known wherever the story is being told.
I encourage you therefore to arise, get fed up and walk into liberty. Take the bull by the horn today. Stop complaining and go to war with the various prophecies that have gone ahead of you. God wants you to rise above that contrary circumstance. You have what it takes to give the devil a black eye. I expect to see you at the top for no power is strong enough to withstand you.
