TREM Daily Devotional 21 January 2019 by Dr. Mike Okonkwo
Topic: Refuse to be Static
Scripture: “The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon”.Psalm 92:12 KJV
Message: In whatever area you find yourself, it is not the will of God for you to be static. His desire is for you to continue to grow and make progress. One of the greatest enemies of progress is satisfaction. You get satisfied when you have what you wanted to achieve. But what happens next is that there are no more dreams or fresh ideas, and then you start dying. Watch all those who have been told to retire, when they retired they stopped doing anything and before you know it, they started ageing fast. Yes, an organization can have retirement age; it doesn’t mean you should retire from productivity. You can still do much more with your life.
TREM Daily Devotional 21 January 2019 – Refuse to be Static
You must continue to deliberately and consciously find out new ways. Polish and improve on your gift. Work on what God has given to you. Find out the best way you can do it better than you have been doing it. I am not just talking about a church situation. I am talking about your business, career and your family. Find out the new things you can do that can stir up the motivation. God is a progressive God and He tells us how best we can fit into the present-day situation. Don’t ever be satisfied. Don’t ever say, I have got it all together or that is how it must be done and nothing else changes. The only thing that is constant is change. If you don’t believe me, go and get your old picture and then look at yourself and see if nothing has changed.
So, I charge you today to go look at how you can improve on your productivity. Find out how you can improve on whatever you are doing. Improve on your job, your business, your academics and the way your family is run. I declare the blessing of God over all that you are involved in.
