Wisdom For The Day Devotional 30 January 2024 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – No Hindrance Can Stop You
TOPIC: No Hindrance Can Stop You (TREM Devotional 30 January 2024)
“And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.” Matthew 28:2 (KJV)
In Christ, you are designed to live victorious in every area of life. A victorious life is not a challenge-free life; rather, it is a life above, even amid the storm. In other words, even when the enemy is bombarding you left, right, and centre, your head will still be lifted up because you know who you are; and more importantly, you know the end result.
The death of Jesus Christ was not the end of the whole operations of God for our total redemption. If Jesus only died, then our salvation would not have been complete. If Christ had not risen from the dead, then forget it; believers would have had no hope.
Jesus had to rise! It was part of God’s package. Jesus had to rise from the dead. He said He was going to rise. And everything was done to prevent Him from rising. They were not satisfied by sealing the tomb with a huge stone; they went a step further to keep watch over it. They intended to use everything they could muster to stop Christ from rising from the dead.
But on the day of resurrection, an angel came from heaven and dismantled everything that was put in place to prevent His resurrection. The angel rolled back the stone from the door and sat upon it. The soldiers that were stationed at the tomb were paralyzed with fear. “…God released him from the horrors of death and raised him back to life, for death could not keep him in its grip.” Acts 2:24 (NLT)
Christ is risen! Therefore, that condition is coming to an end! That obstacle will not stop you. As long as Satan could not stop the resurrection of Jesus, no power will stop you. No hindrance will stop you! Whatever has been harassing you will bow before you.
