If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he
also will deny us. 2 Timothy 2:12

Read: Matthew 15:22-28
22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same
coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord,
thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a

23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came
and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after

24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost
sheep of the house of Israel.

25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the
children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.

27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs
which fall from their masters’ table.

28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is
thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter
was made whole from that very hour.

Have you compared yourself with many other believers around
you and it seems that what you are going through is very
different from their own experiences, and you are beginning to
ask God why me? I congratulate you, because you are in for a
special testimony. What you are going through is evidence
that you are a child of destiny and the devil is all out to
truncate it knowing what you are to become. How do you
think Joseph felt when he was thrown into the pit by his own
brothers? He was sold to the Egyptians before finally landing
in the house of Potiphar, where everything was committed into
his hand. I am sure he would have been consoled by this and
would have thanked God that he was finally in a safe place.
Little did he know that there was a new devil in that house in
the person of Mrs Potiphar. For every new level in the life of a
child of God, there is always a new devil, this is why I always
remind my children not to rest on their success, and because
that is the time the devil will come and knock you out. He
watches for your unguarded hour. When you see the devil
fighting you at all corners, you should know you are special to
God. My prayer is that Satan will never win the battle over you
in Jesus’ Name.
“When thou passeth through the waters, I will be with thee;
and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when
thou walkest through the fire, thou shall not be burned;
neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” Isaiah 43:2
In this assurance you should rejoice that despite the numerous
tests and trials you are going through and the ones you will
still go through, God is with you. The level of suffering you go
through will also determine the level of glory you will attain in
God if you don’t give in. The extent you are prepared to go
through for Christ is also the extent to which you will reign
with Him.
“But he knoweth the way that I take; when he hath tried me, I
shall come forth as gold”
Job 23:10
To a user of this devotional, I decree in the Name that is
above all names; there will be a glorious testimony from your
present trials in Jesus’ Name. Continue to look unto Jesus,
the Alpha and the Omega and do not allow the devil knock
you down. Believe that your tomorrow will be alright and don’t
let the present situation nullify the permanent promises of God
for your life.

Key Point:
You are not a victim but a victor in Christ Jesus.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Joshua 7:8-29 and Job 34:31-35:8

Good morning! How was your night?

“The extent you are prepared to go
through for Christ is also the extent to which you will reign
with Him.”
