"In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us."-” Psalm 62:7-8
AT THE END OF THIS WORK WEEK, IN THIS WEAK ECONOMY, COULD IT BE THAT YOUR JOB CAREER IS YOUR GREATEST CONCERN. IT SEEMS TO BE A DEAD END STREET, OR PERHAPS YOU'VE EVEN LOST YOUR JOB.
LUCILLE BALL WAS SENT PACKING FROM DRAMA SCHOOL WITH A DISMISSAL LETTER THAT READ "YOU'RE WASTING YOUR TIME." MICHAEL JORDAN BROKE DOWN CRYING IN HIS ROOM AFTER BEING CUT FROM HIS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL TEAM. WALT DISNEY WAS FIRED FROM A NEWSPAPER FOR FAILING TO EXHIBIT "IMAGINATION" AND "ORIGINAL IDEAS." TALK ABOUT DEFYING THE ODDS!
WE HAVE EXAMPLES IN SCRIPTURE OF THOSE WHO TOLD THEMSELVES THAT THEY WERE FAILURES; SUCH AS, MOSES AND GIDEON. HOWEVER, GOD PROVED TO THEM OTHERWISE.
BUT IF THE PROBLEM IS, YOU HAVE MADE SHIPWRECK OF YOUR FAITH; WE HAVE OTHER EXAMPLES IN SCRIPTURE OF THOSE WHO SPIRITUALLY FAILED; SUCH AS, PETER AND DAVID. ALL THESE WERE GIVEN SECOND CHANCES, BY A MERCIFUL AND GRACIOUS GOD.
WHEN YOU FAIL, DON'T BE SO QUICK TO COUNT YOURSELF OUT...GOD'S NOT FINISHED WITH YOU YET!
"Be strong, all of you who put your hope in the Lord. Never give up." Psalm 31:24
