TREM Devotional 25 October 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Find Yourself In The Book
TOPIC: Find Yourself In The Book
“And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written:” Luke 4:17 (KJV)
The secret of power is to have a vibrant and intact relationship with God. It must not be a onetime shot. You must put your ears in His mouth. If you do not discover this, you can fast and pray all you want, but power will not flow. Your Father needs you around every time. The reason for manipulation is that people are too much in a hurry; they don’t want to wait. You ought to sit at the Master’s feet and let Him share with you the secret of victory.
The other day Jesus went home to his country, Nazareth as his custom was and they gave him the book to read. He opened to what was documented about him in Isaiah 61 and read: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised”(Luke 4:18 KJV). After reading, He closed the book and sat down. That seat had been waiting for the man whose documentary was in the book to come and sit there. The documented word is what made Him effective.
Do you know that some people’s seats are empty! Do you want people to be drawn to you? Then find yourself in the book and become the book. It was the same thing with John the Baptist. They asked him, “are you the Christ? Are you one of the prophets?” He said, “no” and quoted from Isaiah 40:3. He said: “I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias” (John 1:23 KJV).
The scripture says people left the city and went to look for him in the wilderness. He found himself in the book. Find yourself in the book.
