Wisdom For The Day Devotional 15 August 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – What You Believe Is What You Manifest
TOPIC: What You Believe Is What You Manifest (TREM Devotional 15 August 2022)
“Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” Isaiah 53:1 (NKJV)
Today, I have come to ask you: whose report do you believe? What you believe will determine what you say. And the Bible states very clearly that you shall have what you say. You see, it does not require faith to believe in defeat, failure, and lack. You don’t need faith to be afraid, because it is often in line with your experience. However, faith is required to believe in victory. You need faith to believe God for your healing and your provisions. The bible says, the just shall live by faith, and faith pleases God. We are called believers because we believe in God.
Whatever you believe is what will manifest. So, if you want to know what you believe, check through your life and find out what is manifesting, then you will know exactly what you believe. Our text reveals what it takes for the arm of the Lord to be revealed: Believe the report of the Lord! You cannot go on believing wrongly and expect good things to be made manifest. No! It does not work that way. I know that things might not be going right. I know there are difficulties and challenges facing you. But in the midst of all these, you must hold on to what God’s Word says concerning you, and never let go. Even in the face of contradictory evidence, you are who God says you are. You have what He says you have. You can do what He says you can do. Only believe!
Your part is not to know how it will happen. Your part is to believe what He says. He will figure out how to bring it to pass. Mary said I don’t know how this will happen, but be it unto me, according to your Word (Luke 1:38).
Choose to believe His Word! Stand on it and watch God perform His Word.
Hebrews 10:38-39; 11:6
