Wisdom For The Day Devotional 13 April 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo: You Have The Real Thing
TOPIC: You Have The Real Thing (TREM Devotional 13 April 2023)
“For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:3-4 (KJV)
If ordinary promissory notes made the saints of old to succeed, it’s an aberration for us who have the real thing not to do exploits. Do you know why we are failing? We lack revelation. What we need is illumination. We need our eyes to be opened to what has been done. When you have light, some of the prayers you are praying, you won’t be praying them any longer.
Why are you doing small things? Your life is too precious to be wasted on small things. God did not tell you to pity Him. Small things are products of small mindsets. It is not about location. Even if you are put in Buckingham Palace, you won’t see the big pillars if you have a small mind.
How can you have Christ in you, and you have grasshopper’s vision? Can you imagine Jesus making a small plan? You will no longer do small things. The reason you are doing small things is that you think it is you who do them. Go and enlarge your vision. Cancel the plan you have and make a bigger plan.
Beloved, it is possible to accomplish great things. “… If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” (Mark 9:23 NKJV). I have seen it work. If you take the first step, God will not fail to take the second one. It is time to raise your vision! It is time to dream big! Christ in you, the hope of glory. Christ in you does not fail! Christ in you does not have any sickness. Christ does not have barrenness; therefore, you are not barren. Can you delay Christ from anything He wants to achieve? Certainly not! There shall be no delay in any area of your life. Christ, the game changer is in you. Therefore, you will see quick manifestations. The world will hear your voice.
Romans 5:1-11, 17-21
