Wisdom For The Day Devotional 17 September 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Wait For The Process
TOPIC: Wait For The Process (TREM Devotional 17 September 2023)
“David was thirty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years.” 2 Samuel 5:4 (KJV)
Wisdom For The Day MESSAGE:
David became anointed but Saul will not allow him to sit on the throne. Have you been there? The time of the anointing is not the time for the sitting. David didn’t sit until he was thirty. Abraham was promised a child but had to wait for twenty-five years to receive the promise. You may be anointed today but it may take long for the product to come out. It is a process! But many people don’t wait for that process.
Has God made a promise, and has He assured you? Yes! But it is in the process of time. In the early days of this commission, when there was no form that anyone will desire, there were many things God said about us as a ministry that I found very difficult to believe. That is the truth. But what did we do? I decided to do what I could faithfully. Whatever my hands found to do I did it faithfully, serving God with all my heart. Then I saw him unfolding His plans step by step. God will only tell you where you are going but he won’t tell you the challenges. If He tells you the challenges you will run away.
David was anointed but Saul will not allow him. If God has anointed you, and there is a Saul that is trying to stop you. Let him have the throne. It is just a matter of time; before he will come down. Every Saul in your life is coming down. He is an illegal occupier of your throne. He is a usurper of authority. When you notice any Saul that is hindering what God has ordained, all you need do is just stay clear. After all, you didn’t ordain yourself nor did you anoint yourself. It was God who decided to choose you. He saw you in your weakness and shortcomings and called you. He paid the price for your redemption. He will ensure that every Saul in your life is dethroned.
2 Samuel 5:1-10
