Remember His Faithfulness by Bishop Mike Okonkwo
Topic: Remember His Faithfulness
Dearly Beloved, it is such a joy to welcome you to the fifth month in the year of Above Only, the month of May. It is my prayer that all God has packaged for you in this month will be made manifest. You will enjoy His goodness, favor, mercy, wisdom everyday of this month in the name of Jesus. The goodness of God is not dependent on any external circumstances, but on the truth that God is good and does only good. You know in this world, it’s so easy to become overwhelmed with challenges, it’s easy to focus on all the problems, the things that are not working, I mean the problems of this nation is enough, but I want to encourage you to meditate on God’s faithfulness. Remember how God came through for you, irrespective of the odds that were stacked against you. Remember the miracles, the healing, the provision, the deliverance, remember.
“Remember his marvelous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgements of his mouth;” (Psalms 105:5 KJV)
The Psalmist encourages us to remember the goodness of God and His marvelous works, the things He did in the past, because in remembering do we find the strength to keep on going no matter what. When we cast our minds and think back to that situation we thought would be the end of it all, and see how God delivered us, then we are strengthened in our faith knowing that God never fails, and He will always come through for us.

The Israelites in Exodus 17 complained and murmured because they were thirsty, and didn’t have water. They let their thirst control them, rather than reminding themselves that the God who parted the Red Sea, provided them with a steady supply of Manna and Quail, will come through for them. They let their thirst take the front seat in their minds and their entire being, forgetting the faithfulness and the Almightiness of God. They started to ask “…Is the Lord among us, or not?” (Exodus 17:7 KJV)
Unfortunately, the Israelites are not alone in their quests. Some believers are still asking the same questions today, forgetting all that God did for them. Even if you say God has done nothing for you, which is impossible, get into the scriptures and meditate on God’s faithfulness, His goodness, His awesomeness and I guarantee you that strength will rise up within you.
Beloved, this is still your year of Above Only, irrespective of what you are faced with, God’s Word is everlasting and it must come to pass. You will surely testify, your expectations will never be cut short. This is your season. I bless you in Jesus’ name, Amen.
As a ministry, our focus for this month is Leadership. The theme is “Leadership That Gets Results”. All our services are geared towards this theme and so you do not want to miss it. It has been specially packaged for you, to enable you remain Above Only in all spheres of your life. Endeavor to be there on Tuesdays and Sundays.
