Topic: You Are Not A Failure [TREM Devotional 13 January 2019]
“And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” Psalm 1:3 KJV
God ordained it ever before you were born that whatever you lay your hands on must succeed. So how dare you accept defeat? Beloved, you are not a failure. Even if you once failed, get up again and keep going. Yes, the enemy would do his work because that is his job. If he doesn’t do his job, then he is no longer the enemy. The Bible says ‘the thief cometh not but to steal, kill and destroy, but I am come that you may have life and have it abundantly.’
The Bible says that the barren shall keep house and be the joyful mother of children. So, don’t factor on the doctor’s report; rather, factor on God’s report. You must begin to factor on who you are in Christ. How dare you join the rest to say that you are cursed? Who would say that you are cursed when God has blessed you? ‘You are blessed’ means anywhere you go even if that place was cursed; because of you, things will begin to change. The Word of God says “if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away and all things have become new”. You are a brand-new species of being that has not existed before.
What the devil has against you is your ignorance. You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. Meditate on the Word. Eat the Word and digest it. The Word of the Lord says many are the afflictions of the righteous. Therefore, when affliction begins to come, and they are many; just know how it will end. The Lord will deliver you from them all. That means you are coming out! There is nothing the devil can do about it. Let him bring his best shot, you are coming out. Others may not, but you are coming out.
