Wisdom For The Day Devotional 26 November 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Get Ready For The Cyrus Anointing
TOPIC: Get Ready For The Cyrus Anointing (TREM Devotional 26 November 2023)
“That saith of Cyrus, he is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.” Isaiah 44:28 (KJV)
God knows how to use your enemies to bless you. This is visible throughout the scriptures. Cyrus was a heathen king, yet God spoke to him. He went to Cyrus and said, I know you don’t like them, but I have raised you to bless them. In other words, Cyrus you don’t have a choice but to bless them. Cyrus, I know you are a bad man, but I will use you. There is an assignment I want you to do in the house of that redeemed family of God. You may not like them, but you will do it because the hearts of kings are in my hands. That is not all. Cyrus, you shall perform all my pleasure.
We are in the days of new things; God will do new things in your life. Your God knows how to take your situation and turn it around. There is nothing like fatal failure for you. The book of Isaiah 49:7 says, “Thus saith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the LORD that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee.” God says, though you are despised and disregarded; whether they like it or not, you will be celebrated.
“Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered? But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered…” (Isaiah 49:24-25 KJV)
You committed the offense. You messed up. You are responsible for your predicament. You are a lawful captive. But God says, even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered. The Cyrus anointing is not about what you did. It is about God saving you.
Isaiah 44:28; 45:1-10; 49:7-26
