TREM Devotional 11 May 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – All Things Are Working For Your Good
TOPIC: All Things Are Working For Your Good (TREM Devotional 11 May 2021)
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 KJV
As we climax the age, you will notice an unprecedented increase in the activities of the enemy. Today, when you watch television, read the newspapers or even surf the internet, it appears that evil is on the increase and there is no end to it. You will also notice that things that were hitherto considered forbidden to be spoken about openly are now being advertised. The devil has literarily gone on rampage. Things are unfolding at a very fast rate to the point that you will begin to ask yourself: What is God doing?
Like I have taught severally, the events in the world today have not come to our God as a shock. In fact, the things that are happening in your own life are not strange to Him either. God does not react; He is not bereft of ideas or wondering how to bail you out. No! All things, including your current situation is working together for your good. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” (Jeremiah 29:11 KJV). If I put Romans 8:28 in my own words, I will say: “All things are working together for your glory.”
Apostle Paul said: “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal’’ (2 Corinthians 4:17-18 KJV). What you are going through now will give way to glory. The Message translation says they are “small potatoes compared to the coming good times!”
Beloved, God’s Word is not void of power. The truth is that there is a glory that God has prepared for you.
2 Corinthians 4: 16-18
