Wisdom For The Day Devotional 18 May 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo: There Are Things That Are Freely Given To You
TOPIC: There Are Things That Are Freely Given To You (TREM Devotional 18 May 2023)
“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:12 (KJV)
When you discover the wealth hidden in the word of God, you will just go to bed, and your prayer language will change, knowing you can have it all. God’s Kingdom is ruled by principles. The principles in God’s word work first in you before they work for you. In other words, what you do flows from who you are. Knowing who you are is much more important than what you do. That is why you were given the Bible. The Bible was given so you can see that there are principles that God wants you as His child to see. For instance, despite the recession, He wants you to see the wealth that He has lined up for you as His child.
As a believer, you can either choose to go through life by trial and error, taking whatever comes your way, or you can choose to discover and receive all that God has packaged for you. Settle it therefore in your heart that God did not call you to seek Him in vain. He intends that you will see the fulfilment of the desires of your heart. He says in the book of Revelation 3:8b, “Behold I have set before thee an open door and no man can shut it.” In other words, no amount of satanic manipulation will be able to stop you on your way to getting all that God has put in place for you this season.
Another thing that is lined up for you as a child of God is His glory. There is glory in store for you. There is a glory that is coming upon your life that nothing can stop. When you talk about glory, you are talking about magnificence, splendour, beauty, grandeur, brilliance, and wealth. When the glory of God comes upon a man, every area of his life is affected.
1 Corinthians 2:7-12; Ephesians 1:18-20; Colossians 1.27
