TREM Devotional 19 May 2018 By Dr. Mike Okonkwo – God Is For You
Topic: God Is For You [Saturday May 19, 2018]
“How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!” – Psalms 139:17-18 NLT
As a child of God, one of the things you must settle in your heart is that irrespective of the challenges you may be faced with, God is for you. Never ever give into the lies of the enemy, know that he will always tell you otherwise. The entire Bible reveals the love that God has for His children, and you must believe it.
Irrespective of the difficulties or challenges you may be faced with, or mistakes you have made, God is still for you. The Bible tells us that His thoughts towards us are thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give us a hope and a future (Jer. 29:11). Our text above also tells us that His thoughts towards us are so precious, and they cannot be numbered. Oh, how amazing it is to know that God Almighty is thinking good towards you! Yes, you may have blown it, but that does not in any way change His thoughts towards you. While He does not want you to miss it, when you do, His arms are open wide to receive you. So never run from God, no matter what happens, rather run to Him.
Child of God, you must believe it and appropriate it in your life. Wake up every day knowing that God is for you, and so no matter what you are faced with, you are coming out on top. The devil does not know what to do with an individual that knows his/her right. He is powerless when it comes to this person because he knows that no matter the darts he throws at him/her, the individual will still stand.
Go out today with this confidence and see God fight your battles for you. I bless you today in Jesus’ name.
