Wisdom For The Day Devotional 1 October 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – God Will Remember You
TOPIC: God Will Remember You (TREM Devotional 1 October 2023)
“And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters assuaged;” Genesis 8:1(KJV)
Noah had just been through a flood that shook the entire world. Noah was left there in the ark as though that was the end. But the Bible declares that God remembered Noah. He remembered him and caused him to land in a safe place. I declare by the mandate of heaven that you will get to your divine destination.
In the book of Genesis 30, the scripture tells us that while Leah was having many babies, Rachel’s womb was shut because Leah was hated. For the 46hatred, God opened Leah’s womb and Rachel remained without a child for a long time. At a point in time, Rachel cried out to Jacob and said: give me a child or I die, and Jacob said am I God that gives children.
Indeed, there are things that only God can give. You may have long-standing desires. And there are things you may have prayed about, even fasted and cried severally, asking for divine intervention. I want to tell you; your answer has come. Jacob said I can’t give a child, but I know of a God that can. That same God will visit you. The Bible says in Genesis 30:22; “And God remembered Rachel”. If God can remember Rachel of the old covenant how much more, you in the new covenant? God will surely remember you.
Hannah was another example. In 1 Samuel chapter one, Peninnah had babies but Hannah had none. She was just there worshiping God from year to year. It looked as if that was how her story was going to end. But God remembered her and changed her story. And the beautiful thing about God remembering something is that when He eventually shows up, what He gives is always super. What He gave Hannah was super! What God is doing always supersedes whatever anyone may have got. Your story will not end in shame. God will remember you.
