The Light Daily Devotional – Get Up and Try Again 2
Focus: Get up and try again 2
WORD FOR TODAY
When you fail in any aspect of life, don’t give up and remain defeated; instead, encourage yourself and find strength in God to try again. All men who failed and continue to fail were men who failed to find strength in God to rise above their limitations!
“Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; When I fall, I will arise; When I sit in darkness, The LORD will be a light to me.” Micah 7:8 NKJV
When you fall or fail in any aspect of life, don’t think it’s strange; it will only be strange if you fail to get up despite God’s gift of life to you. The fact that you are still alive indicates that God is not done with you. Even if everything around you is against your rising, take solace in the word of God and put it to the test.
Nobody gave the paralytic man in Mark 2:1-12 a chance of survival, but the effort put in by those around him helped him get back on his feet. Life’s challenges will be numerous; victory over one will usher us into another. We must brace ourselves and face every issue head on. It is in this, that we can move from victory to victory.
The race set before you at this time is to not let anything stand in your way of having the life God desires for you. The fact that you continue to fall into sin does not preclude you from pleasing God; get up and try again by allowing God to live his life in you.
+ Will you rise again? Will you shine again?
Prayer: Lord! Strengthen me to rise above all limitations; glorify your name in my life in Jesus’s name. Amen
Main Emphasis: Each time you fail to rise from your fall or failure you allow your enemies to mock you; get up and try again!
Have a Blessed Thursday!
