Wisdom For The Day Devotional 24 August 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Make The Most Of Your Covenant
TOPIC: Make The Most Of Your Covenant (TREM Devotional 24 August 2023)
“But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.” Hebrew 8:6 (KJV)
Wisdom For The Day MESSAGE:
You may be saved and on your way to heaven but as long as you don’t know your covenant rights here on planet earth, you are going to be useless. Your life as a child of God will not be fulfilled and you will not be joyful. You may end up discouraged, frustrated, confused, and intimidated. Where you should really have exercise authority, you’ll discover that you cannot. Why? Because you don’t know your rights! So the devil strives to ensure that we are blind to our covenant rights and what is available to us.
May I declare to you today that whatever God has done or is doing or will ever do is not because of what you have done? It is because of what He has done! It is because of Him and not you. If He hadn’t paid the supreme price for our redemption you won’t have been saved. I always say to people who say “well I found the Lord”, you didn’t find Him. He found you! You were lost, doing your thing and He decided to save you. God decided to take on human flesh for one singular purpose: to save you. He brought you out of the powers of darkness and translated you into the kingdom of His dear Son.
Beloved, if you don’t understand what has been made available to you, you will be feeling inadequate; you will be feeling like a failure, and your Christianity will not be fulfilled. God did not intend that Christianity should be a struggle. He said in Mathew 11:28 “Come to me all ye that labour and a heavy laden and I will give you rest”. Christianity should give you rest. The burden of the devil is heavy, and his yoke is not easy. But the yoke that God gives to you is easy. God intends for you to have an easy life even amid a storm.
