TREM’s Daily 14 August 2017 Devotional by Dr. Mike Okonkwo - You Belong To An Unshakable Kingdom
Topic: You Belong To An Unshakable Kingdom — Monday August 14, 2017.
“Do you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God.” Hebrews 12:28 (MSG)
All over the world, nations are seeking answers to unending questions. Even the economies that seemed stable at some point, are having to reevaluate themselves. The world is in a state of turmoil. And there seem to be more questions than answers. However, in all of this, the Bible tells us that the unshakable kingdom is ours. Therefore, our attitude in this should be one of sincere gratitude and worship to God, who has given us the victory. While the world is running helter-skelter, looking for some form of stability, we are standing firmly upon a rock that can never be shaken. Yes the seas may rage, as they already are, but we know the One who rules over the raging sea; He stills the waves when they arise, and by this, I am assured, that whatever storm is raging in your life, shall be silenced in Jesus name.
Don’t put up with the lie of the enemy that the situation will drown you. No, you will, without fail, rise above it. The enemy specialises in creating illusions. He uses the circumstances in your lives to paint a false image of a God who is backed to the wall. But may I submit to you that your God is not backed to the wall, and He is not in trouble. He is the Almighty. 1 John 4:17 clearly tells us that as He is, so are we in this world. Therefore, we have also seated above in Christ, far above whatever situations and circumstances we encounter.
You will certainly testify. When men say there is a casting down, you shall say there is a lifting up. God will come through for you. You shall not be disappointed. You shall not see shame. Every mountain before you shall be made plain. And your valleys shall be filled. Be conscious of the fact that you belong to a kingdom that can NEVER be shaken.
