TREM Devotional 13 May 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – You Have Every Reason To Celebrate
TOPIC: You Have Every Reason To Celebrate (TREM Devotional 13 May 2021)
“Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say rejoice.” Philippians 4:4 KJV
Beloved, it is possible that you may have had expectations that seem to have been delayed. But I challenge you to rejoice all the same, because God is waiting on the wings to touch you in a special way. Settle it in your heart that you too will celebrate and there is nothing the devil can do about it. Understand that God expects you to celebrate on a daily basis, whether you see the miracles or not. The scripture says: “Rejoice in the Lord always.”
The truth is that we have several reasons to celebrate but often, we don’t seem to realize it. The greatest reason any believer must celebrate is the fact that the Creator of the universe dwells in you. Unfortunately, we miss out on this point. We want to celebrate only when we have taken delivery of that new car, house or job. There is nothing wrong in celebrating new things but have you ever realized that you are a living testimony? That you are special to God? Think about it! He by-passed millions on the earth just to zero in on you and make you His child. That alone should make you celebrate.
Habakkuk 3:17-18 says: ‘’although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines, the labour of the olive shall fail… yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation’’ (KJV). When you truly meditate on this scripture, you will suddenly realize that it is God alone who upholds all things by the Word of His power. God is still the creator of the universe. Nothing can change who He is. Do you realize that if the fig tree does not blossom today, it will certainly blossom tomorrow? In other words, God is still God in-spite of changing times and seasons. Indeed, you may not have that miracle yet, but the fact remains that you are alive and well and the Greater one lives in you. That is enough reason to celebrate.
