Wisdom For The Day Devotional 13 August 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Don’t Give In To The Enemy

TOPIC: Don’t Give In To The Enemy (TREM Devotional 13 August 2023)

“But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.” Genesis 4:7 (NLT)


The book of Genesis 4:1-2, tells us that Adam knew his wife and they were blessed with Cain first and then Abel. Cain was a tiller of the land and God wanted him to enjoy grace. But he said no, I will come by my work. While Abel said I am not going to work but I will come by the blood of the lamb. I believe that will usher me into your presence. And the bible was very clear; it said the Lord was pleased with the sacrifice of Abel.

When Cain discovered that God had respect for the choice of Abel’s sacrifice, his face was wroth. And God said to him why is your face wroth? In other words, why are you angry? If you do well, I will accept you. God was saying to Cain, I have not rejected you! I am only challenging you to do well. There is nothing special about Abel. The only thing is that Abel did well, and I want you to copy what he did rather than getting offended.

But Cain would not listen. He gave in to the enemy. He allowed the enemy to take him over. He thought that by killing his brother, that will give him a place. There is a space for you and a space for everyone. Your husband’s space or your brother’s space is his own. Everyone has a place. So, he killed Abel. And when he did, he thought that was it. But God said you are joking. Abel’s blood began to cry out. There is a place you put yourself in God that even in death you will still be speaking. Abel began to speak out of the ground. Thank God there is a blood that speaks better things than the blood of Abel. The precious blood of the Lamb of God; Jesus Christ, that is speaking for you.

Genesis 4:1-15; Hebrew 11:4, 12:24
