TREM Devotional – In Christ, You Have Access To Power

Bishop Mike Okonkwo

Wisdom For The Day Devotional 19 May 2024 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – In Christ, You Have Access To Power

TOPIC: In Christ, You Have Access To Power (TREM Devotional 19 May 2024)

“And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ when he raised him from the dead and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 1:19-20 (KJV)

MESSAGE:

I can stay on the “In Him” realities for the entire year. There is so much to unpack in it. But I want to encourage you to take time to meditate on it until you get it. I am not talking about head knowledge; I am talking about a knowing in your spirit and beginning to walk in it.

The immeasurable great power of God, as the Passion Translation puts it, has been made available to you in Christ. As this power works through you, your life becomes an advertisement. When the world sees you, they will see God. This power was released when God raised Christ from the dead and exalted him to the place of the highest honour and supreme authority in the heavenly realm.

“And he alone is the leader and source of everything needed in the church. God has put everything beneath the authority of Jesus Christ and has given him the highest rank above all others.” Ephesians 1:22 (TPT).

Christ is the source of everything you need because God has put everything beneath His authority and has given Him the highest rank above all others. So, where do you come in? He is the Head, and the Church is His body. And the Church is being filled with His fulness. Christ, who has the highest authority and the highest power, now demonstrates this power and authority through our lives.

So, you are a carrier of power. You are dangerously loaded. Every power is at your disposal. You are not ordinary. Darkness is nothing but the absence of light. When light appears, darkness must flee. You are the light because of Christ in you. Darkness cannot withstand you. Nothing you are suffering from that has not been fully paid for. It was fully paid for so that you can have it. Now, you have become unstoppable because of Him.

Seeds Of Destiny Devotional – Preservation By The Knowledge Of God’s Word

Seeds Of Destiny Devotional

Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 19 May 2024 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche: Preservation By The Knowledge Of God’s Word

TOPIC: Preservation By The Knowledge Of God’s Word (Seeds Of Destiny 19 May 2024)

SCRIPTURE: And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: In life, your preservation or safety is tied to what you know from the Word of God.

MESSAGE:

I heard a story some years ago where there was a terrible turbulence in the air during a flight. The turbulence occurred during a flight from America to Australia. Everyone on board the flight was trembling in fear.

However, there was a man who sat all alone by himself in the aircraft and crossed his legs unperturbed. He was even whistling joyfully as he sat.

Every other person got confused at his action, and so someone asked him, “Everyone in the aircraft is afraid and shaking because of the turbulence, but you are calmly seated and whistling. Why are you not afraid?”

The man said, “If you know what I know, you won’t be shaking.”

The most interesting thing was that this man was not even a Christian.

The man continued, “At the corner of this aircraft, there is a man seated there. His name is Billy Graham. He is also a passenger in this aircraft. Since he is here, this aircraft cannot crash.”

That was the secret the man knew. He did not use his own faith because he was not a believer. He was trusting God to deliver him on the basis of another person’s faith.
In life, your preservation or safety is tied to your knowledge of the Word of God. Success in life is a product of what you know. And in the same manner, failure in life is a product of what you do not know. This is the reason why ignorance is a potent weapon of the devil. What you know is what you can show. The dignity of your life and destiny is tied to what you know.

Therefore, make up your mind to go for knowledge – the knowledge of God, the knowledge of His Word, and the knowledge of who you are.

Remember this: In life, your preservation or safety is tied to what you know from the Word of God.

ASSIGNMENTS:

  1. Make up your mind to go for the light of knowledge and refuse to live in the darkness of ignorance.
  2. Spend time with God’s Word to know Him and His Purpose for your life.

PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You deliver me from the bondage of ignorance. I receive the grace to spend time with Your Word to gain knowledge and understanding, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: THE BLESSING OF DEDICATION.

QUOTE: Scripture’s assignment is to increase your knowledge in various realms of God. Culled from the book, “MAKING FULL PROOF OF MINISTRY” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Psalm 31-33

AMAZING FACT: Your bone stops growing in length after you hit puberty.

PROPHETIC WORD (DECLARATION): Receive the Baptism of the Spirt of Wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God this day in Jesus’ Name.

DCLM Daily Manna – The High Price Of Pride

Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

DCLM Daily Manna 19 May 2024 Devotional By Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — “The High Price Of Pride”

TOPIC: “The High Price Of Pride” (DCLM Daily Manna 19 May 2024)

KEY VERSE: “Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes… Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts” (Isaiah 3:16,17).

TEXT: Isaiah 3:3-26 (KJV)

3 The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator.

4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.

5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable.

6 When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand:

7 In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be an healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people.

8 For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of his glory.

9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

10 Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

11 Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

13 The Lord standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people.

14 The Lord will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for ye have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses.

15 What mean ye that ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? saith the Lord God of hosts.

16 Moreover the Lord saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:

17 Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their secret parts.

18 In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon,

19 The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers,

20 The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings,

21 The rings, and nose jewels,

22 The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins,

23 The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails.

24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty.

25 Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war.

26 And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground.

MESSAGE:

Man’s pride always brings him down. James Tillis, a former heavyweight fighter, learned that quickly, too. On his first day in Chicago, Illinois, he proudly declared, after setting his two cardboard suitcases down in front of Sears Tower, “I’m going to conquer Chicago”. However, he was defeated in a fifteen-round bout where he not only lost the world title but also saw his pride bruised.

Pride also played a role in the downfall of Judah. Today’s text is a prophecy about the calamities that would result from Babylonian invasion and their captivity. This distress would come upon Judah because of their backsliding and profanity. The daughters of Zion were particularly singled out for their pride and worldliness, which would bring them into such a humiliation that would contrast sharply with their former fine state.

God promised to take away all the props that fuelled their pride. Haughtiness and a proud disposition attract God’s wrath and judgment. While it is not sinful to desire something that will make life convenient for us, it is ungodly to make a god out of those things God has graciously permitted us to have. Houses, good jobs, well-paying careers, homes filled with healthy children and bank accounts enriched to make life easy for us are in order if used for the glory of God.

God should have our highest affection. We must, therefore, make Him, not ourselves, the centre of attraction in our lives.

We simply incur wrath and judgment upon ourselves when we get carried away by pride, self-centredness and profanity. If you have been caught in the web of pride, today, you can humbly repent and penitently seek the Lord for forgiveness.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
When pride leads, expect a fall.

For your goodness towards me
Your loving kindness that I see
And your faithfulness each day
Is why I’m standing here to say
For your grace that carried me
How your mercy speaks for me
Your favour covers me
Supplies my every need

For holding me so strong
Keeping me safe all year long
My going out and coming in
Ensuring that I win
Through every high and every lows
You’re always in control
You turned my life around
Oh what a joy that I have found

If I have ten thousand tongues
It will never be enough
For everything that you have done
Your favour and your love
Glory belongs to you
That is why I wanna say
Thank you Lord

TREM Devotional – Christ Did It All For Your Benefit

Bishop Mike Okonkwo

Wisdom For The Day Devotional 17 May 2024 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Christ Did It All For Your Benefit

TOPIC: Christ Did It All For Your Benefit (TREM Devotional 17 May 2024)

“Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:” 2 Timothy 2:8 (KJV)

MESSAGE:

If the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ become only a historical fact to you, then your faith is in vain. Jesus came to die for your sins. He died and rose again triumphantly over hell and the grave. But if it is just a historical fact and not a spiritual reality to you, then you will struggle to appropriate the benefits.

To ensure that you are put on a pedestal of permanent victory in every area of your life, the resurrection must be viewed not only as something that really took place but as a spiritual reality.

I have been on this for a few days because if you get it, your Christian experience will enjoy a complete turnaround. What most believers have is head knowledge, but I need it to sink into your spirit. Jesus did not commit sin, but He became sin that you might become the righteousness of God. He died and rose again so you can become partakers of the Divine nature. He became poor so that you will no longer be stranded in life. His back was lacerated, and His body was broken so that you can receive total wholeness. He did it all for your benefit.

The greatest honour that you can do for this great sacrifice is to experience and enjoy all the good things He has released to us. It will be an abuse and an insult not to experience the benefits. It must be a reality in your life. In other words, if the enemy has attacked you with sickness, you must stand in the brutality of your righteousness and say to the enemy: “You cannot stop me! I reject sickness in my body! I reject this growth! I reject this diabetes! It has been carried by Jesus on the cross of Calvary. By His stripes, I am healed.”

The positive proof that you have the victory is not that he died, but that He resurrected. If He did not rise on the third day, you cannot claim that you are justified. What He did on the cross was for your sins. But your redemption is in the fact that He rose. That is the gospel!

Seeds Of Destiny Devotional – The Necessity Of Vision

Seeds Of Destiny Devotional

Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 17 May 2024 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche: The Necessity Of Vision

TOPIC: The Necessity Of Vision (Seeds Of Destiny 17 May 2024)

SCRIPTURE: And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. Genesis 13:14-15

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If God will give it, man must see it. If God will do it, man must see it.

MESSAGE:

It has been made abundantly clear that the most reasonable way to begin anything in life is to begin with God.

Genesis 1:1 says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
Now, after God, the next most reasonable way to begin a thing in life is to have a vision. Vision is a critical necessity for the beginning of meaningful things in life and destiny.

Why then is vision necessary?
Let me give you one necessity of vision:
Divine Function happens at the frequency of human vision.
You see, what man sees determines what God gives.

According to our anchor Scripture, Divine Function happens at the frequency of human vision (Genesis 13:14-15)

So, if God will give it, man must see it. If God will do it, man must see it.
In the journey of vision, one should start from spiritual visions before progressing to material visions.

For example, before you can say you want to build a house for yourself, you should first think of what to do for the kingdom of God (Mat.6:33).

You must seek first the kingdom of God and its righteousness before you talk about doing other things for yourself.
Beloved, the questions to ask are: what do you want to become in God? What do you want to achieve in life in your walk with God? What do you want God to do with you? Make up your mind to seek God and His Kingdom first.

Remember this: If God will give it, man must see it. If God will do it, man must see it.

ASSIGNMENT:

  1. Refuse to live without vision. Ask God to both give and rekindle your vision for living.
  2. Place kingdom vision above other visions of life.

PRAYER: Thank You Lord for showing me the necessity of vision. I receive the grace to both conceive and pursue kingdom vision and place it above other visions of life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: The Way of Vision (Part 1).

QUOTE: A vision is what is ahead of you that keeps you going. Culled from “15 Kingdom Strategies For Survival’’ by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Psalm 25-27

AMAZING FACT: Elephants can understand human-like emotions such as feeling a loss, grieving and even crying.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Receive clarity of vision for this fifth month in Jesus’ Name.

DCLM Daily Manna – Who Is Your Mentor?

Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

DCLM Daily Manna 17 May 2024 Devotional by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — “Who Is Your Mentor?”

TOPIC: “Who Is Your Mentor?” (DCLM Daily Manna 17 May 2024)

KEY VERSE: “Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you” (Philippians 4:9).

TEXT: Philippians 4:9-13 (KJV)

9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.

11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

MESSAGE:

The late Warren G. Bennis, an American scholar and authority in leadership studies, had this to say about exemplary leadership: “Excellence is a better teacher than mediocrity. The lessons of the ordinary are everywhere. Truly profound and original insights are to be found only in studying the exemplary”.

Apostle Paul modelled excellence in his leadership and his exemplary lifestyle obviously impacted those he mentored. A case in point is what we read in the text about the Philippian Christians. It was the cradle of a Christian assembly founded by Apostle Paul about two decades after Christ’s death and resurrection. Following Paul’s mentorship, the Philippian congregation, despite their small number and poverty, supported his evangelistic work and sent relief to saints at Jerusalem during a period of famine. They showed commitment to the promotion of the gospel through their selfless giving.

Christian mentees roundly bred by a Spirit-filled leader should respond admirably to the teachings of their mentor as demonstrated by the Philippian church. The ideal mentoring is to have the learners and their tutor be on the same page from the beginning. Also, the Christian mentor, like Paul, must not fail to “declare all the counsel of God” while the learners must not fail to absorb all that is imparted.

Every Christian, old and young, must seek to receive guidance from mentors the way the Philippians did in the First Century.

But we need to follow only those with proven biblical probity. We must weigh them on the scale of scriptural integrity. Above all, we must see Jesus Christ, the Author and Finisher of our faith, as our ultimate Mentor.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
If your spiritual mentor does not mirror Christ, drop the mirror and keep looking unto Jesus.

TREM Devotional – Jesus Did It

Bishop Mike Okonkwo

Wisdom For The Day Devotional 16 May 2024 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Jesus Did It

TOPIC: Jesus Did It (TREM Devotional 16 May 2024)

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” – Romans 3:23-24 (KJV)

MESSAGE:

God has made provision for us to be forgiven by faith in the sacred blood of Jesus. This happened to demonstrate God’s justice. Jesus came like we read yesterday and took on the form of a man. He paid the supreme price – the death on the cross on our behalf.

Before Jesus came, sin was covered with the sacrifice of animals. But now with His own blood, once and for all, everything about sin had been eradicated.

When the season of tolerance came to an end, there was only one possible way for God to give away his righteousness. Through the perfect sacrifice of Christ. It cannot be earned! Not to be deserved, and not to be merited. You can only receive the gift of righteousness through faith in the perfect sacrifice of Christ.

We were all sinners! We all became sinners by the sin of Adam. So, all you need to become a sinner is to be born. Once you are born, you are a sinner because you have the seed of sin inside you. Just like you have the DNA of your parents when you were born. However, Jesus, through His perfect sacrifice released us from the guilt of sin and the accusation of the law.

“Where, then, is there room for boasting? Do our works bring God’s acceptance? Not at all! It was not our works of keeping the law but our faith in his finished work that made us right with God. So our conclusion is this: God’s wonderful declaration that we are righteous in his eyes can only come when we put our faith in Christ, and not in keeping the law.” Romans 3:27-28 (TPT).

It is our faith in Christ that makes us right before God. There is no room for boasting because nothing can earn us right standing before God except faith in Jesus. He did it!

By reason of what Jesus accomplished on your behalf, you will be fulfilled! Only good things will come from your camp. And you will not be small.

Seeds Of Destiny Devotional – The Worthless Sacrifice

Seeds Of Destiny Devotional

Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 16 May 2024 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche: The Worthless Sacrifice

TOPIC: The Worthless Sacrifice (Seeds Of Destiny 16 May 2024)

SCRIPTURE: The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord: but the prayer of the upright is his delight. Proverbs 15:8.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A sinful lifestyle makes a great sacrifice worthless.

MESSAGE:

The Scripture makes it clear in our anchor text above that the sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord.

During one of our beginning-of-the-year fast many years ago, the whole church was joyfully involved in the 21-day fast to seek the Face of the Lord regarding the rest of the year. We were all fasting and coming to church daily in the evening to pray corporately. In the course of the fast, God honoured His Word and glorified Himself. There were a lot of testimonies of what God did in the lives of His people during the fast.

However, there was a young man who also participated in the fast while at the same time living with a young lady he was not married to.

What a contradiction! What a waste of sacrifice!

Two of them would fast in the day and participate in the prayer in the church in the evening, yet they would go home to continue in immorality.

And the pathetic thing is that the young man refused to change from that lifestyle.

That lifestyle was an attack on their offerings and sacrifice. It was an attack on their consecration.

Beloved, a filthy or sinful lifestyle is an attack on your spiritual exercises and sacrifices; a sinful lifestyle makes a great sacrifice worthless.

In Zechariah 3, Joshua the high priest was going to make sacrifices before God, but he was resisted by satan because of his filthy garment.

You know, a major assignment of a priest is offering of sacrifices. But here was Joshua being resisted by satan because of his filthy garment. And God was not going to collect polluted bread from his compromised hands.

So, anytime your garment is filthy, your sacrifices are not acceptable to God. When you fast with a filthy garment on, your fasting will produce no result.

Your fasting, giving, offering, etc. are abominable to God and unprofitable to your life and destiny when your garment is filthy. What you put in the offering basket, no matter how huge, is a waste when your garment is filthy.

Remember this: A sinful lifestyle makes a great sacrifice worthless.

ASSIGNMENTS:

  1. Refuse to make your labour and sacrifice for the Kingdom a worthless one.
  2. Strive first for Divine acceptance before you offer sacrifice and offerings to God.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to present myself and my body a holy and acceptable offering to You always. I ask that You accept both myself and my sacrifices Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
