Wisdom For The Day Devotional 23 April 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo: Take On The Mind Of Christ
TOPIC: Take On The Mind Of Christ (TREM Devotional 23 April 2023)
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” Philippians 2:5 (KJV)
It is far better to know the ways of God than to know only the acts of God. Most Christians today only know the acts of God, that is the reason why once they encounter a little trial here, they begin to dodge service. They start saying, “Lord, I never knew it would be this way”. And someone who was on fire is suddenly no longer around. That is why Paul admonished every believer to be strong in the Lord. It is not about how the Lord is strong in you, because without controversy, He is strong, but how are you strong in the Lord?
The book of Ephesians 6:10 (KJV)says: “Be strong in the Lord….”. Not in yourself. That’s the secret of dominion. Be strong inside Him. Disappear and take on His mind. Take on His strength, His wisdom, His ability, and everything that He has given to you.
You cannot afford to strike a compromise with the devil. God is asking you to lose your mind and take on His mind. What does it mean to ‘lose’ your mind? According to diagnosis, your doctor tells you that your tubes are blocked, that you would never have a baby, or that you only have one tube. The diagnosis is correct medically speaking. But you know that if you walk like that as a Christian you will never have a child. So you declare: According to Exodus 23:26, there shall be no barren amid God’s people. The Bible says the barren shall keep house and be a joyful mother of children.
You must learn how to align your mind with the ‘diagnosis’ of Heaven. That is where you belong! You should ‘lose’ your mind because the human mind is failing. I am not trying to put down knowledge, but we are having more confusion than we bargained for in this era. Browse the internet, read the papers and watch the news. As soon as they found the solution to a problem, another will emerge.
The answer to our problems is not in human expertise. It is in the authoritative and unbreakable Word of God.
