Wisdom For The Day Devotional 7 December 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Anchor Your Life In The Word
TOPIC: Anchor Your Life In The Word (TREM Devotional 7 December 2022)
“Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power…” Hebrews 1:3 (KJV)
Everything is held up by the Word of God. If the word is taken out, everything will dematerialize and will fall apart. That’s how important the word is. So, I challenge you today, if there is anything you should anchor your life on, it is the word. Our warfare today is the warfare of sticking to the word- the promise.
Our warfare is the warfare of standing on God’s word. No matter what comes against us, no matter what bombards us, no matter the pressure we are under, no matter how hopeless the situation is, the warfare is to stand and know that God hastens his word to perform it. To stand on the word is to believe the word no matter how impossible it looks. Just believe in the word. Stop acting as if you are the one to bring the word to pass. The onus lies on Him who spoke the word to bring it to pass; the onus is not on you. Your part is to stand on the word. If you stand, it will be fulfilled.
Ephesians 6:10-11 Paul writing to the church at Ephesus said, be strong in the Lord, and the power of his might, put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Then he went further to say, having done all, to stand! Just stand on the word and you will experience the power of God. You have been well equipped by God for every situation. Your loins are fortified by truth, you have the breastplate of righteousness, your feet are shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, you have the shield of faith, you have the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God. In addition to that, you must always pray with all prayers and supplications in the Spirit. You have all those things in place and all you need to do is stand and watch with all perseverance and supplications for all saints. With this, you can never fail.
2 Corinthians 10:3-6; Ephesians 6:10-19

I am the temple of God and the Spirit of God dwells in me. Therefore I choose not to defile my body because God dwells in me. I am blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. I have been chosen before the foundation of the world to be holy without blame before Him in love. I am a beloved child of God, having received redemption through His blood and even the forgiveness of sins by the riches of His grace. (1Corinth 3:16, Eph1:3-4, Colo1:14)
I am more than a conqueror for greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. I am the light of the world and the salt of the earth. The Lord crowns my years with His goodness and my path drips with fatness. The Lord is my Light and my Salvation; therefore I shall not fear. The Lord is the strength of my life. I shall not be afraid. (Rom 8:37, 1Joh 4:4, Math 5: 13-15, Ps 65:11, Ps 27:1)
Every day and in every way I am getting better: spiritually, physically, financially, mentally, morally, and in all my endeavours.
I am called for a purpose. I will fulfill this purpose and I will arrive at God’s ordained destiny for my life. Nothing will cut me short. I will make a formidable impact in my world for the Kingdom.
IT IS MY WEEK OF ACCELERATION!
