TREM Devotional - Your Recovery Is Guaranteed

Wisdom For The Day Devotional 8 September 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Your Recovery Is Guaranteed

TOPIC: Your Recovery Is Guaranteed (TREM Devotional 8 September 2023)

“And David enquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? Shall I pursue after this troop? Shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.” 1 Samuel 30:8 (KJV)


You have nothing to fear! Your victory is guaranteed because Jesus settled it all at the Cross. I believe with all my heart that you will recover all. All we are called to do is to enforce the victory that Christ already wrought on our behalf. This is the reason I’m confident that this year will not end without your testimony. It is a new day. Open doors are coming to you. You are going to step into positions you never thought of.

The above scripture is a story we are familiar with. It should fill us with hope and expectation. David found himself in an unfamiliar situation. He was used to experiencing victory, and being the one who destroyed the enemies, but not this time. I don’t think that he would have ever imagined that such a thing would happen to him. But there it was, staring him in the face. The Amalekites had ravaged Ziklag, taking away their families and belongings. It was completely devastating, to the point where David’s men began to talk about stoning him, and you won’t blame them.

You may have suffered setbacks. Maybe you are in an unfamiliar territory, with no help in sight. I have good news for you! Your recovery is guaranteed! However, you must change your posture. Switch from hopelessness to encouragement. That was the beginning of David’s miracle. David encouraged himself in the Lord. Though it was not stated, I can imagine that he began to remind himself of the great and mighty victories God had granted him. And rather than remain discouraged, his soul was lifted.

Beloved, appreciate God for past victories. Gratitude provokes worship, and worship gives God the license to flex His muscles on your behalf. Remind yourself of the bigness of your God and watch mountains level before you.

1 Samuel 30:1-8

Morning – Proverbs 3-5; Evening – 2 Corinthians 1
