TOPIC: Victory In Spite Of The Adversity (TREM Devotional 17 December 2022)

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (KJV)

Wisdom For The Day MESSAGE:

I’m so excited and confident that the plans and purpose of God concerning you would surely come to pass irrespective of the challenges. But you must guard against fainting and all forms of weariness. Depression and suicidal tendencies have suddenly become a big issue in Nigeria and all over the world, and this comes from fainting and poor response to the realities that we now face. We must confront life with a dominion mindset that is how God created us. We have a dominion mandate over every creation on the earth. Even more so, by the reason of the finished work of Christ, we are now one with Christ, is the joyful confident expectation that things will always work out for your good (Colossians 1:27).

Why does the bible say that if you faint in the days of adversity, your strength is small? (Proverbs 24:10) Adversity is the part and parcel of life. Life will come with challenges, difficulties, times of distress, times of frustrations, times of no hope, and nowhere to turn. They are all part and parcel of life, and when they show up, it does not mean that it’s all over. The bible says you should be of good cheer because Christ has won you the victory. You must know that there is a devil at loose on planet earth and he intends to stop you and to take you out. But you have all that it takes to prevail over every adversity. It actually depends on you. It’s your choice on what you make out of Christ.

We are in the most complex situation that humanity has ever experienced. Many are getting overwhelmed on daily basis by the things that they are facing. But I stand now by the authority of heaven speaking into your life, the devil will not destroy your vision, he will not destroy your dream, he will not abort God’s divine agenda concerning your life in the name of Jesus.

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He is my keeper, the shade upon my right hand. The sun will not smite me by day; neither will the moon by night. The Lord will keep me from all evil, He will keep my life. The Lord will keep my going out and my coming in from this time forth and forever. The Lord girds me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like hinds feet and sets me upon high places. He teaches my hands to war so that a bow of steel is broken by my arms. (Psalm 18:32-34, Ps. 23:1, Ps 121:5-8)

The Lord will cause my eyes to see the hidden riches in secret places; I will be sought after. This is my season of recovery; everything the locust, the cankerworm, the palmer worm has eaten shall all be restored unto me. I will pursue, overtake and recover all (Is. 45:3, Joel 2:25; 1 Sam 30:8)

Every day and in every way I am getting better: spiritually, physically, financially, mentally, morally, and in all my endeavours.

I am called for a purpose. I will fulfill this purpose and I will arrive at God’s ordained destiny for my life. Nothing will cut me short. I will make a formidable impact in my world for the Kingdom.
