Surely, we will have some good days and some not so good days, the Bible promised it, in the Book of Job 14:1 ” Man that is born of a woman is of few days,and full of trouble, The bible speaks about it so we will not be caught of guard, so trouble does not take us out, so we want quit, so we can prepare for trouble. Its ok to have trouble, but do not let trouble have you, in others words do not let trouble , trouble you. We have to remind our selves that whatever God brings us to, He will bring us through. I like the song that says, I have had some good days, I have had some weary days, but when I look around my good days out weight my bad days and I want complain, yes life will knock you down, but I heard Les Brown say ” If I can look up I can get up. I have heard people say you can not keep a good man down but I say you can not keep a Godly man down, good or bad because some days you are not so good. You may knock me down and you may see me laying there on my back but I am standing up on the inside, it is not me but the The spirit that lives on the inside of me. I maybe on my sick bed, down but not out because I am still praising God. No money in the bank, down but not out because I still have joy because my joy is the Lord, no money but still have food on the table. Divorce, down but not out because God said I will never leave you nor forsake you. Jesus promised us that ” In the world we shall have tribulation” ( John 16:33) down but not out because He said” when you are weak God`s power is made perfect in you.” ( 2 Corinthians 12:9) you can be knocked down and still have joy, because you know you will get up if you decide to get up. Surely , God will deliver you from Trouble. ps. 91:1-3 ” Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, ” who is the fowler? The devil and he is always trying to fowl things up the plans God has for your life, your family, your health. But thank God, we have the promise, The Psalmist said our troubles will soon be cut off,and we will fly away, many are the afflictions of the righteous, but God delivereth him out of them all. You have to tell the devil:
you might give me a bruise,but I am not going to lose, I might be broke, but I am not going to choke, I might feel pain,but in the end there will be gain. we may be pressed on all sides,but we will not be crushed, no matter what you are going through, just remember, you are going through. Knock down but not out. We must have self talk:
Too Blessed To be Depressed. To Saved To be Enslaved, Too Alive not to Thrive, Too happy to be Sad, Too much fun to leave the son, Too inspired to get tired, Too much story not to chase gods glory, Too much testimony to believe that bologna. We have come to far to turn back now. Come here Job, did life knock you down? yes it did, but I am not out, look at me know, I got double for my trouble. Come here Joseph did your family knock you down? yes they did, but I am not out, look at me now, I am second in charge of the nation. You may have been knocked down by life, health problems , but look at you now, drug problems, but look at you now, bankrupt, but look at you now, dropped out of school but look at me know. The commercial on TV says ” help I have fallen but I can not get up, Jesus can get you up, no He has already got you up, because when Jesus was knocked out on a Friday, in a comma on Saturday, all day Saturday, they said he must be out, but early Sunday Mourning He got up with all power in His hands and when He got up we got up, now that stand up power is on the inside of us, so when the world knocks you down you can get up, because the world can not knock you out, get up put your gloves back on, you have your life ahead of you, the best is yet to come, quitters never win and winners never quit.
1 John 4:4 ” Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
