TREM Daily Devotional 26 October 2018 by Dr. Mike Okonkwo
Topic: There is no Fear in Love
Today’s scripture declares that “Perfect love casteth out fear”. That means, when you understand this love, you are not afraid. The devil can do you nothing. Remember, they will surely gather. That is their own ministry but God has told us, not by Me. So, they shall be scattered for your sake. You know believers have been made to believe that God is at war with the devil. No! God is not! The last time I checked, He is sitting down and laughing at the devil.
He’s sitting down irrespective of what the devil is doing because he, the devil is a defeated foe. No witchcraft can destroy you. No enchantment or incantation can destroy you. Nothing will stop your miracles. The love of God will cause you to succeed where others have failed. Because of God’s love, you will scale through that hurdle. God wants us to know that we have been raised to sit together in His class. That is where we are. The Head and the body cannot be separated.
TREM Daily Devotional 26 October 2018 – There is no Fear in Love
The problem with the church is that we have refused to sit down. We are standing and our standing is a sign of anxiety. I don’t know what the devil will do. The Psalmist saw it years before Christ came. He says, “The LORD said to my Lord, sit down until I make your enemies your footstool.” In other words, when you sit down, I will handle them the way they should be handled. He says: Rest in what I have done. I have already done it. Just rest! When you do, you will discover that they will have no other choice but to fall. So, the church needs to sit in the promises that God has made available to us. Don’t be afraid! Perfect love casts away fears.
