Topic: You Will Always Bounce Back [TREM Devotional 26 November 2019]
“For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.” – Proverbs 24:16 KJV
God’s plan concerning you cannot be aborted. Aren’t you glad that He always has a backup? No matter where you are, no matter the condition you are going through, there is a backup. There is nothing like total failure for a child of God. The righteous falls seven times and will always rise up. There is a bounce-back mechanism inside every one of us. If you are a believer, never accept ‘no’ for an answer. It can never be fatal for you. It is not over until you win because you have been born into the Kingdom. And in the Kingdom, you are a winner! Glory to God.
Don’t wait until you see the results before you declare the verdict. The verdict has been declared. ‘Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place’ (2 Corinthians 2:14). Are you faced with any battle? You are coming out. Your story will never end in shame. It will never end in disgrace. So, they thought they have heard the last of you? Tell them you are about to attain greater heights.
What an exciting thing to know that it is not over with you! You may not have food on your table yet; you may not have that husband yet; that baby may not have come yet; you may not have built a house yet and the landlord is embarrassing you. It is just for a season. “…Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning”(Psalm 30:5).
The night season will not last forever. The clouds will still clear for you. God makes all things beautiful in His time (Ecclesiastes 3:11). God, the Master-craftsman, is at work behind the scene. You may not have seen everything that is happening; but get ready, the scaffold is about to be removed. The painting is about to be finished and you are going to stand out a beautiful specimen of the Kingdom of God.
