TREM Devotional – Possess Your Inheritance Now

Bishop Mike Okonkwo

Wisdom For The Day Devotional 14 January 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Possess Your Inheritance Now

 

TOPIC: Possess Your Inheritance Now (TREM Devotional 14 January 2023)

“And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long are ye slack to go to possess the land, which the Lord God of your fathers hath given you?” Joshua 18:3 (KJV)

MESSAGE:

In our scripture for today, Joshua, in essence, was saying to the children of Israel: how long will you continue to wait? Why are you vacillating? Why are you sitting down and watching the enemy take what God has given to you? God has given you that land!

The same question goes to us today as the new creation and the born-again believers. How long will you continue to wait and sit down and allow the devil to eat your lunch? How long will you continue to allow him to tell you when to wake up and when to sleep? The land that God has given to you, when will you possess it? God is in the eternal now. He does not have tomorrow or next tomorrow or yesterday, it is always now!

God’s timing is now! We are the ones that live in time. God does not live in time; and as believers, we are not supposed to allow time to control us.

“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” (2 Peter 3:8 KJV)

God lives in eternity so there is no timing with Him. Everything He has said, promises, and words He has spoken over you are meant to happen now, not tomorrow. It is not meant to be postponed. It is now! You have arrived! You are not going to arrive.

In natural life, we are born to begin to do but when you are born again: you are born and you become. In the natural, when you are born, then you begin to do to become. In Christianity as soon as you are born again you become. You are not born to start to become. No! You have become.
