TREM Devotional 24 November 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – You Are Born Into Greatness
TOPIC: You Are Born Into Greatness
“Being born again, not of corruptible seed but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.” – 1 Peter 1:23 KJV
God is not an unrighteous God neither is He partial. The scripture says: “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with Him” (Acts 10:34-35 KJV). It is not the will of God that one will succeed and another will fail. As a matter of fact, if you are a child of God, you are already successful. By virtue of your new birth, you are born into achievement and greatness.
Do you know that when a Prince is born into a royal family, he does not have to think whether he is royalty or not, because he was born that way? Similarly, as a believer, you do not begin to wonder if you are royalty or not. No! You already are! So, you just know that you are and then start to act like it. The same thing applies to us God’s children. It is abnormal if you begin to doubt your royal heritage or that you own everything your Father has. The onus is on you to really know your identity and the things that accrue to you by virtue of your birthright. Little wonder Apostle Paul prayed thus: “The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power” (Ephesians 1:18-19 KJV).
God’s people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Ignorance is your greatest enemy- the ignorance of who you truly are! The book of Proverbs 19:2 says: “Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good…” That is why whenever opportunity presents itself for you to receive knowledge or receive revelation, you do not joke with it.
