TREM Devotional 1 January 2022 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Welcome To Your Year Of Acceleration
TOPIC: Welcome To Your Year Of Acceleration
“Before she travailed, she brought forth; Before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.” – Isaiah 66:7 (KJV)
Congratulations, you made it into the new year. The year 2022 is our year of acceleration.
One thing I do not want you to do is to “commonise” the word for the year. Please don’t. Don’t take it as just another cliché and go around as if God has not spoken. Child of God, the word will not profit you if it is not mixed with faith (Heb. 4:2). It is not about God, it is about you. If you just can believe, all things are possible to him that believes (Mark 9:23).
When God talks about acceleration, it is beyond speed. You are not just going to gain speed, but you will achieve it within a very short time. What does that tell you? It tells you that restoration is here for you. The years the locust, the cankerworm, the palmerworm have eaten will all be fully restored in Jesus’ name (Joel 2:25).
This acceleration is not specific to a certain area of your life; it is a blank cheque. In what area are you trusting God for acceleration? No matter the area, no matter how long the situation has persisted, God is set to give you a turnaround this year. It is not about the global economic climate; it is simply about the word of God. The word of God has, inherent, the capacity to produce. The table has been laid for you, so eat to your satisfaction without any form of apology.
Whatever you plan to do this year, start it now. Do not wait till February or March. Every month is packed with goodness for you; make up your mind to have it all and it is possible. Pray as if it all depends on God but roll up your sleeves and work as if it all depends on you. Remember, faith without works is dead.
As you progress this year, don’t forget to share your testimony. Let me know the good things God is doing in your life, they will bless somebody. I look forward to hearing your incredible testimonies.
