Down, But Not Out
Be like the man who said, “l’m never down; I’m either up or I’m getting up!” Strengthen the things that remain, and go on. You’re in the ring with a formidable opponent who wants to “take you out!” He knows that God has a special plan for your life. But he doesn’t have the power to “take out” the man or the woman who prays and stays close to God. Make a commitment to stand in God’s strength regardless of what you’re facing, or how hard you’ve been hit. Give him a clear message with fire in your eyes. Tell him you’re not “throwing in the towel.”
Jeremiah29:11say's For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Now with this promise from God how can we ever say that we are defeated? You may have been to hell’s door and back for yourself and your family, but you’re going to win. Tell the devil you have been created in the image of his worst nightmare! You’re a resurrected man or woman! I want to challenge you today get in the game. If you feel that you have been knocked down get up, and if you see someone that is down the ground with you help them up to.
If you read on in verses 12 and 13 we have amazing promise from God 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. 13 You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. All we have to do is cry out to Him. He has already won the victory that you are seeking!
