Verse Of The Day : Although a righteous person may fall seven times, he gets up again, but the wicked will be brought down by calamity. Proverbs 24:16.
Though of The Day : It is not possible to fall and remain down when the Almighty God is your support.
LISTEN : Sometimes we are hit by troubles and trials of life, but faith in God causes us to bounce back each time we fall. God stands by us because He promises to be with us (his children) in troubles. The Bible says,
“He that dwells in the secret place of the most High
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
He shall call upon me, and I will answer him:
I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him,
and honour him.”
God promises to be with us in troubles, and to deliver and honour us in the end. When we trust and obey Him, He fights our battles. Beloved, no matter what hits you, you can’t afford to remain down. The Bible says,
“Therefore, strengthen your tired arms and your
weak knees, and straighten the paths of your life,
so that your lameness may not become worse,
but instead may be healed.”
Beloved, you may be down for whatever reasons, but you can be up again on your feet if you put your trust in God (Romans 10:11). Faith in God lifts people from the dungeon to palace. Truly, no matter the pressures in your life, if you trust in God you can’t be pressed beyond remedy. So, determine to rise if you fall. Never forget that, it is not about how many times you fell, but how many times you got up and kept going. Beloved, get up and dust yourself off and keep going. Remember, it’s not over with you until God says so. Be wise!
What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Don’t be discouraged when you fall, rather, determine to rise again.
2. Always remind yourself that, trouble is just a stage in your life and not your destination.
3. When it appears like you are not going to overcome your troubles, be strong and act in faith.
4. No matter the crisis in your life, don’t give up; rather, determine to overcome your fears.
Prayer : Everlasting God, I thank you because you are with me always. Help me to rise if I fall, amen!
A Word Of Blessing : Today, I speak on your life. You will not be defeated. Receive help to rise when you fall, in Jesus ’ name, amen!
Reflection : He who trusts in God, no matter the pressures of life can never be crushed.
Quote : “No matter what hits you, you can’t afford to remain down. Faith in God lifts people from the dungeon to a palace.”
