Wisdom For The Day Devotional 1 April 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – God Loves You
TOPIC: God Loves You (TREM Devotional 1 April 2022)
“And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?” Genesis 3:9 KJV
Adam and Eve “….heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.”(Genesis 3:8 KJV). And God called out to Adam. Where art thou? In essence, God was saying: “Adam, where are you? I am hungry for fellowship! I love you so much! I cannot do without fellowshipping with you! I love you so much that I need you around me! I love you much! Let’s hang out”.
And Adam said: “… I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.” (Genesis 3:10 KJV). Notice that Adam heard God’s voice. It wasn’t a case of I didn’t hear you. Adam heard God’s voice and he was afraid. There are still many people who are afraid of God today because they still don’t understand the everlasting love of God for them. “…I was afraid because I was naked, and I hid myself’. Stop hiding! This is the time to come out! Those of you who are hiding from God, those of you who are rejecting God and are not ready to acknowledge Him for who He is, it is time to embrace His love.
God loves you in spite of your mess. Yes, you spat in His face, but He still loves. His love for you is unconditional and unmerited. It doesn’t matter what you have done wrong, God still loves you. That is what makes Him who He is. We are not talking about the love of man! We are not talking about a love of a husband or the love of an earthly father. No! We are talking about the love of God. We are talking of the agape love: God’s kind of love.
It is a love that loves you despite your wrong doings. This God’s love is favorably disposed to dispense only good. Despite your mess, God is favorably disposed to give you good because He loves you. Adam messed up! God knew that Adam messed up, yet He reached out to him. That’s God ‘s love on display.

My God enlarges the steps under me so that my feet will not slip I have pursued mine enemies and overtaken them. I refused to turn till they are all consumed. The Lord will hear me in the day of trouble. The God of Jacob will defend me. He will send me help from His Sanctuary and strengthen me from Zion. He will remember all my offerings. (Psalm 18:36-37, Psalm 20:1-3)
There is no lack, for my God supplies all of my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus The Lord has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant and Abraham’s blessings are mine. Some trust in chariots and horses but I will remember the name of the Lord God. They are brought down and fallen but I am risen and stand upright. (Philippians 4:19, Psalms 35:27; Galatians 3:14, Psalm 20:7-8)
Every day and in every way I am getting better: spiritually, physically, financially, mentally, morally, and in all my endeavours.
I am called for a purpose. I will fulfill this purpose and I will arrive at God’s ordained destiny for my life. Nothing will cut me short. I will make a formidable impact in my world for the Kingdom.
