Wisdom For The Day Devotional 1 August 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – God Will Fix It For You
TOPIC: God Will Fix It For You (TREM Devotional 1 August 2022)
“…For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8 (KJV)
Child of God, I want to remind you that there is nothing the devil can pull against your life that will intimidate God. In fact, ever before he pulls anything, God has already gone ahead, to wait for him at the end. When man fell, God spoke in Genesis 3:15 that the seed of the woman was going to bruise the head of the devil and the devil will bruise his heels. Of course, that was prophetic. The word became human and began to work. God was working behind the scene.
When the devil pulled off the stunt, he was wondering how God was going to come out of the dilemma. Do you know that sin is a ‘’dilemma’’? It is a dilemma in the sense that, God loves man, yet He hates sin and the soul that sins shall die. So how will God destroy man that He loves? Now if man will not be destroyed, how would God judge the sin that man has committed? That was a dilemma.
God loves man but hates sin. But the man that God loves has touched sin. So how will God separate the two? The entire human race has been infested by the sin nature. The book of Roman 5:12 tells us that: wherefore as by one man, Adam, sin entered into the world and death by sin and so death passed upon all men; for that, all have sinned. So, through Adam, every human being born on the face of this earth became a sinner because all you needed to be a sinner is to be born. Once you are born, you entered into the sin track.
So, here was God faced with this dilemma. As a Master Strategist, God had an answer to it. Beloved, I want you to understand that there is no type of dilemma you can be in that God has not got an answer for. No matter what the devil has figured out concerning you, you are coming out with victory. His plans against you will not succeed. His wicked stunts against your life will not stand.
