Wisdom For The Day Devotional 10 May 2024 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Focus On What God Has Perfected

TOPIC: Focus On What God Has Perfected (TREM Devotional 10 May 2024)

“Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” Jeremiah 1:4-5 (KJV)


When you understand what had been done on your behalf, there is no way you are going to end a failure.

According to the scriptures, everything about Jeremiah had been perfected before he was born. So, Jeremiah, you may be a small boy, people may have written you off, and things around you may not be saying so, but listen you are a Prophet to the nations. And the same applies to you. God is not a respecter of persons.

The problem with a lot of people who say they are believers is that they are looking at the present circumstances and the conditions they are in, and not what God has perfected in eternity. God said to Jeremiah: “Before I formed thee…” It was settled before Jeremiah was conceived in his mother’s womb. Therefore, as far as Heaven’s record is concerned, even though it did not look like it, Jeremiah was already a Prophet to the nations. All he needed to do was to receive it.

Then Jeremiah replied: “…Ah, Lord God! Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.” Jeremiah 1:6 (NKJV). That is what we always say. How can that be? I came from a humble background! I am not educated! I am not like the other people! God responded to Jeremiah and said: “…Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ For you shall go to all to whom I send you, And whatever I command you, you shall speak.” Jeremiah 1:7 (NKJV). What an assurance!

Stop worrying about how it will happen. Your part is to believe and receive it. God’s Word can never fail. “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” Mark 13:31 (NKJV). You are not going to end a disappointment. It will rain again in your life.

Jeremiah 1:1-19
