Good Morning Ladies!
Have you ever felt like you are in the boxing ring of life? Some of you may be saying that you are there right now. I want to encourage your heart today that you win. If you believe this you have to find a way within yourself to keep getting back up. I know it’s hard every time you think you are putting one foot forward and making some progress then something comes and takes you back down again.
Many of us have put forth great effort to make changes in our lives and it seems like stuff fall out of the sky to tell us that…nope that is just not going to happen. It seems as though every time you do something to move forward in the direction the Lord has given you there is another uppercut, another sucker punch, another jab to our heart.
My friend today you have to be more determined than ever that you are already victorious and you have to find a way to keep going. You may roll your eyes and say, “Well that is easy to say but how?” You do it by continuing to move and not backing down. When you get the bad news, when there is a setback, when there is a trial in the middle of what seemed like a good place it is not time to crawl under the covers and hide and say, “No more, I can’t do this, I have had enough and I am done!” NOPE, that is not what you do. Furthermore, you don’t sit still and allow the negative thoughts to flood your mind and heart because we know the word tells us that as a man thinks so is he (Ps 23:7).
There is good news! When you get knocked down you will be more determined than ever to pull those covers off of you and with God’s grace you will go and do the very thing that the enemy is trying to keep you from accomplishing. That means it’s time to get up and write another page or two in that book, go pay on another bill (ooooh Satan don’t like that!), go and do good or pray for someone who is giving you pure hades, confess the Word of God to launch a counterattack, praise God like crazy, start interceding, go and bless someone with a word or financially no matter how small and go and do one thing for the vision God has given you. But whatever you don’t stay down and don’t hide. Hide God’s Word in your heart and know that you are already a winner baby! Things come so that you may throw away your confidence in everything the Lord has spoken to you. It will NOT be SO!!
Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise – Hebrews 10:35-36
Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. – 1 Corinthians 16:13
The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. – Psalm 34:18
