Wisdom For The Day Devotional 20 October 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Righteousness Speaks
TOPIC: Righteousness Speaks (TREM Devotional 20 October 2022)
“But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)” Romans 10:6 (KJV)
The Bible declares righteousness speaks. This simply means that righteousness is not dumb. Righteousness speaks. Righteousness makes declarations. The devil will do everything possible to keep your mouth shut. But you must never allow your voice to be silenced. “For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words, thou shalt be condemned.” (Matthew 12:37 KJV).
What are you saying? Make your declarations known. The book of Philemon 1:6 says: “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.” (Philemon 1:6 KJV)
Acknowledge the good things in you. Wake up in the morning and begin to acknowledge the good things in you. Wake up in the morning and begin to make declarations. As you are going to the bathroom, begin to make declarations. As you are dressing up, make declarations. As you are in your car, make declarations. And continue to make declarations! That is prayer! That is how to exercise dominion.
Use your mouth to declare thus: “I’m not a loser. I speak the blessing of dominion over my life. I speak the blessing of possession, increase, creativity, concepts, and ideas over my life. I have a sharp mind. I have the mind of Christ. I have knowledge of witty inventions. I am anointed. I am God’s ambassador. I am anointed by God to work the works of God. I am God’s powerhouse and I can never fail. I am a terror to the devil. There is a power at work in me that makes the ruler of darkness to tremble. Whatsoever I shall prosper. God is the glory and the lifter up of my head. All of my help comes from the Lord. Evil bows before me. The wicked bows at my gate. No weapon formed against me shall prosper”
This is how you are called to function because you have been made righteous in Christ
