The Light Daily Devotional – Get Up and Try Again
Focus: Get Up and Try Again
WORD FOR TODAY
There is no crime in starting or trying again when you hit the bottom of life. Sometimes, the downfall of a man is a blessing in disguise!
“And he said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, And naked shall I return there. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; Blessed be the name of the LORD.”(Job 1:21 NKJV)
As you proceed in destiny be ever mindful of the fact that you came naked and that whatever you have is a gift from God. In the case of Job, he did not allow what befell him to affect him; rather, he worshiped God the giver of life and all things.
Sometimes, God in a bid to remind us humans of our limitations and the need to absolutely put our trust in Him and how powerless the strength we think we have in various aspects of life is; allows us to hit the bottom of life. Hence, when you find yourself down in any aspect of life, it is a call to focus on God and trust Him for your life.
A man who thinks he is too big to start again can never rise beyond his fall. Never give up at any point in your life but rather brush away your tears, smile away your pains and trust God to help you to rise again. Even if you are sick it is not appropriate to think about death but a time to hold God’s hand based on His promise to rise again. At whatever stage you find yourself in life do not forget that the glory of the latter house shall be greater than the former!
+ 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: For every man walking according to God’s purpose, every fall paves the way for a fresh and glorious start!
Have an Outstanding Wednesday!
