Topic: Have The Right Perspective [TREM Devotional 7 September 2020]

Click HERE for Previous MESSAGES by Bishop Mike Okonkwo

“And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” Genesis 1:2 KJV

I feel constrained to share with you on the importance of having the right perspective at all times, more especially in the midst of challenges and difficulties. It is vitally important that we learn to see how Jesus sees, because having the right perspective will go a long way in determining how you come out of every situation. The bible paints a very clear picture for us so we can truly understand the state of things at the time. It says the earth had no form and no shape. It was totally desolate, void and completely empty.

The message translation tells us that “the earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness”. And yet, the Spirit of God was moving. This tells me that the worst difficulty cannot stop the move of the Spirit. The Spirit of God is always moving in spite of the problems and challenges we encounter. But the question is where is your attention? Where is your focus? Is your focus on the chaos, darkness and difficulty or is it on Jesus?

Philippians 2:9-10 states “Wherefore God hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;”(KJV). That is your God! Everything bows at the mention of His name. He is the Almighty and He is not limited by anything or any situation. Chaos cannot stop your God! Out of that chaos, God called forth light and light came forth. When your focus is on God despite the difficulty and challenge, you will have the holy audacity to call forth your expectations and watch it manifest.

Whatever the enemy has declared impossible in your life shall be turned around. Everything that is dead in you is coming alive. Creative miracles shall take place in your life. Whatever the enemy has fashioned against you shall not stand. I curse every sickness and every disease in your body in Jesus name.
