TOPIC: There Is An Opening For You (TREM Devotional 23 November 2022)

“And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him”. Mark 7:32 (KJV)

Wisdom For The Day MESSAGE:

The year 2020 was one of the most traumatic periods in human history. For a couple of months, nations of the world were completely shut down and this continued in several countries in 2021. Airports, schools, and churches were shut down. Government offices and businesses were shut down. There was a complete lockdown of the system. I came to tell you that your life can’t be locked down. You can still prosper amid all the adverse conditions and that after every lockdown there will always be an opening. So don’t shut yourself down. Rather open yourself up for what God is doing in your life.

God has not designed that our lives will be under lockdown by the adversary. The devil does not have that capacity to put us down. When God steps into the situation, He opens it up for blessings. Our text tells us that a man was brought to Jesus that was both deaf and dumb. Life has been shut down for him. The eyes and ears are key sensory organs, and he has lost the use of both. If your ability to see and speak becomes impaired, you can’t achieve much in life. Some of us have been under the lockdown of the enemy for so long, put under lock and keys by the enemy in diverse manners, and you are wondering if you will ever come out of this situation. No matter what it is the enemy has used to shut down your life, there will be an opening. You cannot remain in that situation.

The word of God is coming to you to encourage you and to challenge you never to tolerate the lie of the devil. Your life cannot be locked down because of the colourful future and colourful destiny that God Himself has ordained for your life. Our text tells us that they brought this man to Jesus, that’s the beginning of victory. The beginning of opening for anyone is to know there is no other place to go other than to Jesus, and because you have come to Jesus, you cannot be under lockdown.

The Lord has opened the heavens, the storehouse of His bounty, to send rain on my land in this new month and to bless my home and all the works of my hands and I will lend unto many nations, and I will not borrow (Deu 28: 12,).

I know that all things work together for my good because I love God, and because I am called according to His purpose. In everything I give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning me (Rom. 8:28; 1 Thess. 5:18). The Lord has assured me that He will never leave me nor forsake me, so that I can boldly say, The Lord is my helper; and I shall not be afraid. (Hebrews 13:5-6)

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.
