TOPIC: A KNOCK DOWN IS NOT A KNOCK OUT!
BASIC SCRIPTURE: MARK 14: 66-72
Many years ago, when I was passing through turbulent times because someone I loved left my life, I chose to commit suicide (which led to the discovery of this ODM vision)! I felt l was the biggest failure and God could never use me! At that time, some of my friends deserted me! Some mocked and laughed! Some even said: “IT IS FINISHED with him. But one morning, the Holy Spirit told me to ask a carpenter to do a giant billboard at the entrance of the ministry office. The wordings on that giant billboard were: A KNOCK DOWN IS NOT A KNOCK OUT!STAND UP AND KEEP GOING AGAIN! And I obeyed! That was the beginning of my internal healing process. Indeed, “all things work together for good for those who love the LORD and who have been called according to His purpose? (Rom. 8: 28B).
This should give us hope that no matter what we may have done, our adventure isn’t Over. God is at work reclaiming our story. The rest is history and those who mocked me then, are today in shock at what has become of this little man who wanted to commit suicide because he felt he was a failure, Thank you LORD Jesus!No matter how 2020 has been, always remember that there are tomorrows on their way worth the struggles of today, Just as Peter bounced back after failing the LORD seriously (today’s scripture), your cock shall crow again and a new day 18 coming for you! Never give up, because the LORD told me clearly that 2021 is a year of OPEN REWARD for those that have waited for Him. Never give up because your best testimonies, prayers, fasting and walk with God are just ahead! Delay is not denial and a knock down is not a knock out because your story is still being written! Keep moving!
PRAYER POINTS: Take any song of praise as led.
