TREM Devotional 20 November 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Whose Report Do You Believe?
TOPIC: Whose Report Do You Believe?
“Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed”? Isaiah 53:1 KJV
A lady went for a mammogram test and they found two lumps in her breast. As a believer, she chose not to worry; even her sister was surprised at her faith. On her next appointment for biopsy, she got to the hospital and while others were fretting about themselves, she ministered to them, telling them not to worry, that God would intervene. She still had her own challenge, but she was rejoicing in the Lord and in the power of His might. When it was her turn, they checked but they didn’t see anything. The doctor said there must have been a mistake. So they called the doctor that had checked her before, yet they didn’t see anything. The two lumps were gone! This lady expected good things to happen to her and it happened just like that.
You also can receive your healing supernaturally; just believe the report of God. “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5 KJV).
Most of the things that kill people are what they hear. For instance, you may see somebody who has been walking about before and everything is fine, travelling to different places and doing things normally; then he decides to do a medical checkup and the doctor says, “there is something we are seeing, and it is deadly.” In one week, when you see that same person, you will notice that he would have changed completely because of what he heard. That tells you how powerful words are. So, you must be careful what you listen to. What the doctor said may be a fact but that is not the truth. The truth is that by His stripes, you were healed. He took your infirmities and bore your sickness. So, why do you have more faith in the doctor’s report than in what Jesus said? Beloved, God’s report is superior to any doctor’s report.
