Wisdom For The Day Devotional 17 January 2024 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – It Can Be Done
TOPIC: It Can Be Done (TREM Devotional 17 January 2024)
“And David longed, and said, Oh that one would give me a drink of the water of the well of Bethlehem, which is by the gate! And the three mighty men brake through the host of the Philistines and drew water out of the well of Bethlehem, that was by the gate, and took it, and brought it to David:…” 2 Samuel 23:15-16 (KJV)
It is time to stop the excuses! It is time to stop explaining the failures. If you think that the challenge is that you are in the midst of giants! So, what? David was in the midst of giants, and he killed the giants.
Look around you! The things you said cannot be done; someone else is doing it. That tells me that it can be done. The question is: Are you hungry? Where is your hunger? Where is your thirst for great and mighty things?
David, the king, was hungry. However, what he was hungry for seemed impossible to achieve. There was water everywhere, but his hunger was targeted at the real thing. “I am hungry! I want to drink! But not just any type of water. I want the water from the well of Bethlehem”. Watch what happens next. He did not call any person’s name. He did not ask for any person’s help. But the three mighty men responded to his hunger, broke through the host of the Philistines, drew water out of the well of Bethlehem, and brought it to David.
Who told you it cannot be done? Who lied to you? It is not about location; it is about the vessel. It can be done. It begins with an intense hunger. How hungry are you for the next dimension? How hungry are you for the manifestation of God’s power in your life? David was hungry for something that was not common. Men responded to his hunger, and what seemed impossible was accomplished. Men that matter will respond to your hunger. Men will hazard their lives to help you when you have a serious hunger.
2 Samuel 23:1-17
