Wisdom For The Day Devotional 13 May 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo: Cling To The Word
TOPIC: Cling To The Word (TREM Devotional 13 May 2023)
“But the seed in the good earth- these are the good-hearts who seize the word and hold on no matter what, sticking with it until there’s a harvest” Luke 8:15 (MSG)
From the parable of the sower, we saw that it was the same seed (the word) that was planted but different results because of the type of soil which is the heart. The result you will produce is determined by what you do with the word you hear. Many don’t spend time to think or meditate on the word of God they hear. It just falls on them and then it goes. The Bible says the word should not depart from your mouth. When the Word of prosperity comes to you, meditate on it. Speak it to yourself day and night. Then you will observe to do what is written. And then you make your way to prosperity and have good success. God is saying that the issue is not the word but what you do with the word.
So, the variable is your heart. The word is constant. It is not subject to change. The Bible tells us that the word of God is incorruptible. In other words, it cannot be destroyed, and it cannot perish. It is errorless, infallible, and impregnable. It is bound to produce. But your heart must receive it. No matter the situation you face, don’t give in to thinking that it is too strong for you. No, you serve the God who is more than enough. Don’t believe your environment is above the word and don’t be a double-minded fellow. We have a guarantee that the word will produce. Be fully persuaded about it. Stand on it and watch God honour His word.
The number one thing that will help you to be fully persuaded is to open your mouth and begin to speak it into yourself. The Bible says in Romans 4:17 that God calls those things that are not as though they were. The things that be not, call them as though they are. That is the key. Call it! It may look stupid and silly but call it. Give voice to your faith.
