Wisdom For The Day Devotional 13 January 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – You Are Already Blessed
TOPIC: You Are Already Blessed (TREM Devotional 13 January 2023)
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:28 (KJV)
Wisdom For The Day MESSAGE:
According to our text, God blessed man. Adam had not asked for anything. But God blessed him. To be blessed in this context means you are empowered to succeed. You are empowered to make it. You are empowered to overcome, and you are empowered to subdue any challenge. The first thing Adam heard when his eyes were open was that he was blessed. The next thing God said to man was “Be fruitful”. In other words, God was saying to them “be productive”.
Every child of God has all that it takes to be fruitful. You are already productive as far as heaven is concerned. Don’t let the devil lie to you. There is a dominion mandate over your life. Unfortunately, some don’t know it and they are still struggling. What does this imply? Wherever you see anything contrary to what God has spoken, dominate it, subdue it, and put it down. It is not supposed to control you or determine how you live your life. You are in charge.
Thank God that we are dealing with God and not man. It is a man that will write you off when you fail. Some people feel it is their responsibility to begin to tell you all your faults and all the mistakes you have made. But that is not God. God speaks to your strength. When He sees something dirty, He begins to pump what is good inside it. That is what confession does to you. You confess what is good although you don’t look like it.
Philemon 1:6 encourages you to acknowledge the good which is in you in Christ Jesus, not the bad. There is no bad in you because you are in Christ. This is critical because these are the times when everything that is around you is negative. And if you are not careful and you are not in the word of God, you will be spewing out death from your mouth. Acknowledge the good in you always.
Proverbs 18:20-21; Ephesians 1:3-10
