TREM Devotional 7 June 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – God Is For You
TOPIC: God Is For You
“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” – Romans 8:31 KJV
One of the things you must settle in your heart is that the God of all Grace is for you, irrespective of the challenges you may be facing. Your clear understanding of this fact should guide your attitude on a daily basis. Even if you think the world is throwing lemons at you, with the right attitude, you will make lemonades out of it and make a profit. Your situation is as bad or as good as you see it. Like the popular phrase: “half full or half empty,” it all depends on you. If you see the glass as half full, you will see opportunities all around you. But if you see it as half empty, you will see lack and hunger all around you.
Stop crying and wailing like someone without hope. When you read the account of David and the raid of the Amalekites in 1 Samuel chapter 30, can you imagine what would have happened if all David did was sit and wail? No matter how much God wanted to restore all that David lost, it could never have happened because God would not have been able to help him. Yes, David lamented, but more importantly, he sought the face of God. He knew that even in the difficult times, God was still for him!
Child of God, settle it deep within your spirit that God is for you. Make it a daily confession until you become one with it. Never let the devil steal this truth from your spirit. Be fully persuaded that He is for you and no one can be against you because the greater One lives in you. One with God is a majority. No matter the wind, your anchor is firmly on the solid rock and nothing can move you. There is a bright future ahead of you! God’s thoughts towards you are thoughts of peace. He will take you to your expected end. This year, you will pursue, overtake and recover all.
