Wisdom For The Day Devotional 6 December 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Put Your Ear At The Mouth Of God


TOPIC: Put Your Ear At The Mouth Of God (TREM Devotional 6 December 2022)

“Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise”. John 5:19 (KJV)


Beloved, if you want to prosper and continue to prosper in whatsoever you are doing, you have to get into the Word. The bible says blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful, But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in his law does he meditate day and night (Psalm 1:1-2). When he does that and when he receives the word he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that bringeth forth fruit in its season. Its leaves also shall not wither, whatsoever he doeth it shall prosper.

If you want to prosper in your business, in ministry, in your marital life, or in whatever area you want to prosper, get addicted to the word. The Bible says in John 6:33 “for my word is spirit and life”. In other words, God is saying, life is in the word and not man’s opinion, not in what people are saying around you, not the word you read on billboards or in what social media is saying, but what God says. So, this is the time to put our ears in the mouth of God. The other day they asked Jesus what is the secret of your success? He said I’ve learnt to put my ears in the mouth of God. John 5:17, “Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work”. In other words, I cannot on myself do anything. If you want to prosper, come and get into the word!

The psalmist said, “one thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life to behold the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple” (Psalm 27:4). Look at that! He says that’s my desire. Once I go there and put ears in His mouth and receive instruction, I know that everything changes because the entrance of God’s word gives light and gives understanding to the simple.

I am the temple of God and the Spirit of God dwells in me. Therefore I choose not to defile my body because God dwells in me. I am blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. I have been chosen before the foundation of the world to be holy without blame before Him in love. I am a beloved child of God, having received redemption through His blood and even the forgiveness of sins by the riches of His grace. (1Corinth 3:16, Eph1:3-4, Colo1:14)

I am more than a conqueror for greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. I am the light of the world and the salt of the earth. The Lord crowns my years with His goodness and my path drips with fatness. The Lord is my Light and my Salvation; therefore I shall not fear. The Lord is the strength of my life. I shall not be afraid. (Rom 8:37, 1Joh 4:4, Math 5: 13-15, Ps 65:11, Ps 27:1)

Every day and in every way I am getting better: spiritually, physically, financially, mentally, morally, and in all my endeavours.

I am called for a purpose. I will fulfill this purpose and I will arrive at God’s ordained destiny for my life. Nothing will cut me short. I will make a formidable impact in my world for the Kingdom.
