Topic: Signs Will Follow You Not The Other Way Around – TREM’s Daily Devotional by Dr. Mike Okonkwo “Date: Thursday, 01 March 2018.
Scripture: “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues.” Mark 16:17.
One of the strategies of the enemy is to keep the believer ignorant. For as long as you are ignorant, the devil will make a mess of you, he will literally make a mince-meat of you. Today, there are many believers who are developing itchy ears and going from place to place in search of miracles. Beloved, you are not to look for miracles, rather miracles are to follow you because you are a believer. The Bible rightly says “…And these signs shall follow them that believe …”. Are you a believer? Then the signs should follow you; not that you follow the signs. That is an anomaly. Don’t be carried away by the lying wonders prevalent in our world today, they are all nothing, but the signs of the end time. Don’t be moved by them.
Today, I am disturbed at the number of believers led by dreams. How can a believer have a dream that has nothing to do with the Bible, and he will believe the dream? Next thing is that he starts to run helter-skelter. The dream has nothing to do with the Bible but they tell you it happened to this person and it happened to that person. Yes, it happened to the person because he or she opened the door for the enemy. Don’t be distracted and swayed like a leaf in the wind.
Like Daniel, it is time to know your God. God is your Father, He longs for a close fellowship with you and the more you know Him, the more you can wield the power at your disposal. Interestingly, the devil you are afraid of is very much afraid of you. When you appear, demons tremble, but you embolden them when you do not know your right. Stop following miracles, it is time for miracles to follow you.
