TREM Devotional 2 January 2022 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Your Case Is Different
TOPIC: Your Case Is Different
“Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.” Isaiah 66:8 (KJV)
One thing you must settle in your spirit this year is that your case is different. The fact that it has never happened before does not mean it cannot happen to you. God is set to break records. He is set to do incredible things in quick succession in your life.
In our text today, the question was asked: “who hath heard such a thing?” Hmmm… yes no one may have heard or experienced it before, but that does not mean it is impossible because you have God who specializes in breaking records on your side.
As I write this, I remember the story of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Imagine if she had told the Angel, “Forget it this will never happen” would Jesus have still been born? Yes, because no one can stop the plan of salvation, but Mary would have lost the opportunity of being the vessel through whom the Messiah will come.
This year, I challenge you like Mary to learn to say to the Lord “Be it unto me, according to your word”. You do not have to understand it to experience it. The world does not have to have recorded precedence for it to happen. If God has said it, your only assignment is to believe and to obey. This calls for sensitivity. Learn to live by the proceeding word of God. Take instructions daily, indeed minute by minute from Him. Let the Holy Spirit be your partner in this journey. Walk every step with Him and you will see the impossible become possible in your life.
I am a firm believer that this year is pregnant with testimonies for you. You will not miss it In Jesus’ name. I will hear your testimonies. Don’t forget to send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will bless somebody.
