Topic: Our Hope Is In God [TREM Devotional 20 January 2019]
“I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.”Psalm 16:8 KJV
Today, everywhere you turn, nothing gives hope at all. The newspaper doesn’t give hope. The television and the billboards don’t give hope either. But as children of God, our hope is in the Lord. That is why we can never be moved. Somebody said: “I don’t know why the devil is after me.” The promises of God that you have is the reason the devil is trying to stop you. If he doesn’t see anything good in you, would he want to stop you? No, he wouldn’t. But he cannot succeed because God is at your right hand. No matter the contradiction or the giants before you, put your hope in God.
The twelve spies that went to spy the Promised Land saw giants. But they first saw grapes. And they began to wonder: “Why are giants there?” The giants were there for the big grapes too! What they were looking for is what the giants were also looking for. They saw how good the land was and the big grapes and decided to settle there. But the good news is that before God sent you to get the grapes; He had already equipped you to get there. So, you don’t have to be overwhelmed by the giants. Stop looking at the giants, you are a grape eater. Get them out of the way because you have authority over them.
Whatever is a deficit in your life, from this moment forward, let it come to an end in the name of Jesus. I release abundance into your life. I release surplus into your life. I declare by the authority and mandate from heaven that your star will shine. The days of waiting on other peoples’ testimony are over. I declare that no matter what the devil thinks he has done, it is your turn to testify. The delay and postponement that have been packaged for you are over.
