Wisdom For The Day Devotional 15 September 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – With God Nothing Is Impossible
TOPIC: With God Nothing Is Impossible (TREM Devotional 15 September 2023)
“Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?” Genesis 17:17 (KJV)
When God said He was going to bless Abraham, he laughed at God. In Genesis chapter 18, when the angels came to his house to bless him, Sarah was eavesdropping behind closed doors and she laughed also. When you look at that account there was no reason why God should bless them because they had broken every law. They broke the law of faith! They doubted God, and they have no respect for God. Up until this time Abraham has only known God as the creator. That was all he knew. It was natural for Abraham to look at himself and his wife and say it’s not possible, let’s make another plan. But God was merciful. The mercy of God will overrule on your behalf.
You are important in the agenda of God. You are here for a purpose. The purpose of God concerning you will be accomplished. As humans, it is easy to think that we have come to the end of the road. But each time we come to the end of the road, we have the opportunity to experience God in another dimension.
Don’t doubt! Don’t begin to reason how it will come to pass. God is still God. Leave it to the Almighty God. He said to Abraham you have known me as God that put things in place but there is another name which you have not known me. When Abraham caught the revelation of God as the Almighty, that was when he stopped doubting.
God said to Abraham, I called you, you didn’t call yourself. You were doing your thing when I showed up in your life. I will show you another revelation of me. There are no impossibilities with me. Your part is to believe and hold on to every promise.
Genesis 17:15-22; 18:1-15; Luke 1:37
