TREM Devotional - Take Back Lost Territories

Wisdom For The Day Devotional 29 August 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Take Back Lost Territories

TOPIC: Take Back Lost Territories (TREM Devotional 29 August 2023)

“So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.”1 Samuel 17:50 (KJV)


David confronted Goliath and obtained victory. Don’t forget that though David was not a trained soldier, he had enough audacity and courage to confront Goliath. All the ‘mighty men of war’ were terrified by the arsenals of Goliath and could only stand by and tolerate the insults, shame, and embarrassment. Just like David, I come to challenge you to take back the lost territories and cities in your life. You cannot afford to sit back and remain ordinary. The world out there wants to change and influence you, but you are the one that is supposed to bring about positive change in your world. You cannot run away or join them in doing evil. I urge you to arise and confront your confrontations.

Another vivid example of being able to take territories, cities, and gates can be seen in the story of Daniel. He along with other three Hebrew boys were taken into captivity in Babylon as slaves. If you read your book of Daniel closely, you will discover that these same slave boys turned out to be people of great influence even in a foreign land. Daniel though a slave has so much influence on the kings of his time and he got promoted to a position where he could decide what happened in the land. Don’t forget that Daniel did not just get promoted overnight. He built the right foundation. He was a man of integrity, hard work, and excellence.

Today, we live in an era where every person is in a hurry to make it big. Like Daniel, you must be patient and ready to engage in hard work and refuse to just idle around. You must imbibe a culture of excellence and integrity. Let me assure you that the territories of music, arts, entertainment, media, politics, finance, and business are all waiting for you. This generation is waiting for you. You will shock your world. This is your defining moment.

1 Samuel 17:20-58; Daniel 2:47-49; 6:1-3

Morning – Psalms 126-128
Evening – 1 Corinthians 10:19-33
