Wisdom For The Day Devotional 25 August 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – God Will Show Up For You
TOPIC: God Will Show Up For You (TREM Devotional 25 August 2022)
“The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: But the just shall come out of trouble.” Proverbs 12:13 (KJV)
As long as you are in the will of God; serving God diligently and you are doing all you know to do, you are a prime target of the devil. The scripture says in Psalm 34:19 “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.” I don’t care about how many afflictions you are encountering, one assurance I can give to you is that you will be delivered. You will not die in that affliction. You are going to stand tall. And you are coming out bigger, stronger, and better.
The book of Job chapter 14:1 declares: “Man that is born of a woman, is of few days, and full of trouble.” The Bible did not say that the trouble of man is few or little but full. The book of 2 Timothy 3:12 says: “Yea, all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” The Bible didn’t say all who are God-haters but it establishes the fact that those who will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
There are things they will suffer! There are challenges they will go through! There are bridges they will cross! There are floods that they will go through! And there is fire they will go through. So we must be very careful never to put God in a box. We must leave God in His exclusive class because He is God and you are not. He moves even amid chaos. He knows how to show up in crisis. So, don’t be afraid! God will show up for you in times of crisis.
He showed up right from creation. “In the beginning, God created heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” (Genesis 1:1-3 KJV).
In times of challenges, when you cannot trace God, put your trust in Him. He will come through for you.
He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Job 5:7, 2 Timothy 3:11-12
