TREM Devotional 4 June 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Get Past The Crossroad
TOPIC: Get Past The Crossroad
‘’ And it came to pass after a while that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land. And the word of the Lord came unto him, saying arise, get thee to Zarephath which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.’’ 1 Kings 17:7-9 KJV
Whenever you come to the crossroad of life, get ready because God is set to show you another dimension of Himself that you have never seen. When your brook dries up, get ready. When it looks like there is no way out, get ready because God is about to send you to Zarephath.
Crossroads of life are part of your pathway to greatness. A crossroad is a place where you make critical decisions. That critical decision may mean you may have to do something that does not make sense at all just for the sake of the Kingdom. That decision may mean going back to knock on certain doors that had hitherto closed up on you. It may mean you have to repeat a certain task, sit again for an examination, write a fresh business proposal, re-invent your business or find new ways of achieving your set goals. It is all about being resilient. It is all about commitment. It is all about refusing to throw in the towel.
Child of God, I challenge you to keep moving. When you are faced with a mountain and you are determined to go on irrespective of obstacles, the mountain will either give way or you would climb over the mountain; more so, you could either go under it or bore a hole through it. One thing is sure: you will get to the other side!
