Wisdom For The Day Devotional 29 October 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Remove The Stronghold Of Failure
TOPIC: Remove The Stronghold Of Failure (TREM Devotional 29 October 2023)
“And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham’s sake.” Genesis 26:24 (KJV)
By the reason of the perfect sacrifice of Jesus, you cannot lose. Head or tail, you are already a winner. There are no two ways about it. You must, therefore, remove the stronghold of negativity. Remove the strongholds of failure. Take failure out of your vocabulary. You don’t have it in you!
Stop saying it can’t work. It has to work because of who you are in Christ. When we talk about grace, what do you think grace is about? Grace is unmerited, unearned, and undeserved. In other words, God becomes partial on your behalf. He gives you preferential treatment. You must have it! Have the mentality that even if it doesn’t work for anyone, it must work for you. You may not be able to explain it, but it has to work because of who you are and because of who you are linked to. You are linked to Jesus even as Isaac was linked to Abraham. Isaac was blessed because of Abraham. So also, you are blessed because of Jesus.
According to the scriptures, Isaac sowed in the land and prospered. Go and sow in your land! Go and invest in that land! It will prosper because of Jesus. Don’t neglect that land. God has called that land fruitful. There may be famine, but God has called the land fruitful. And God’s Word cannot be set aside.
In Christ, you are blessed! That means you are empowered. You have been empowered to succeed. You have been empowered to go forward. There is no room for stagnation in your life. You have been empowered to make progress. Your tap will keep flowing. You will grow and become great. That is God’s intention for you. You will be bigger, better, and stronger because of Jesus. Nothing will be able to stop you. No power will take what belongs to you.
Genesis: 26: 12-29
