TREM Daily Devotional 26 April 2019 by Dr. Mike Okonkwo
Topic: No One Can Take Your Seat
Scripture: “Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.” 1 Samuel 16:13. KJV
Message: Saul tried many times to destroy David. He insisted that David would not be on the throne. He used every available opportunity, but he could not stop him. For every attempt he made, God created a way of escape for David. In the name that is above every name, you will escape from your enemies. Their plans against your life will never succeed.
All the traps that they have laid against you, you are coming out of them. Whosoever digs a pit for you shall fall into it and whoever rolls a stone against you, it shall be rolled back against him. For every evil they have sown against you, they would reap a hundredfold. The enemy will not cut your life short. Every promise God has made shall be accomplished. Your life will glorify God!
TREM Daily Devotional 26 April 2019 – No One Can Take Your Seat
God made sure that at the appointed time, David sat on the throne. Beloved, in Christ you are pleasing to God. And when your life pleases God, He makes even your enemies be at peace with you. He will even use those that you least expected. You know what happened? God was orchestrating things in the life of David. Right in the bedroom of Saul, God raised up a Jonathan. Now if you read it so fast you may miss the whole point. Who was Jonathan? The heir apparent! In other words, he was next in line to Saul from the human standpoint.
Beloved, the Bible says, promotion cometh not from the east, west, or south but from God. He is the Judge; He sets down one and lifts up another. You don’t promote yourself! Saul said to his son Jonathan: “Is something wrong with you? You are the heir apparent!” Jonathan said, “I have enough sense to know that God’s hand is upon David, I don’t want to occupy the seat a is not my own.” No one will occupy your seat.
