TREM Daily Devotional 26 March 2019 by Dr. Mike Okonkwo
Topic: Stick with the Process until it Manifests
Scripture: “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23 (NKJV)
I will liken the above scripture to planting a seed in the ground. After planting, you keep nurturing the seed and ensure that it is adequately exposed to sunlight. You water the seed and you do all that you know to do just to ensure that the seed grows into a plant. You don’t go and uproot the seed simply because the next day or week after planting you haven’t seen the corn tree; No! You stick with the process until it manifests. The same thing goes for the Word of God. You must stick with the process until you see the manifestation. And the Word of God guarantees you that there will be a manifestation.
What happens to most of us is that we give up too easily. We stand for a little bit, and when things don’t seem to go like we expected, we conclude that it is not working. ‘May be God didn’t really mean what He said.’ Settle this in your heart once and for all that GOD CANNOT LIE! It is not in His character to do so! Every promise He has made is guaranteed by Christ’s eternal sacrifice on the cross. And the sacrifice cannot be violated.
Child of God, don’t fall for the lies of the devil. It is your responsibility to cast down every imagination and every thought that tries to exalt itself above the knowledge of God. Don’t give it any room to take root and grow in your life; instead, counter it with the Word of God. God attaches a great deal of importance to His Word. He does not pull punches. He says what He means and He means what He says. All that we are expected to do is to lay hold on them, and keep standing until we see the promise fulfilled.
