Senior Pastor’s Devotional
Day 56 Movement Control Order – “Strategic Psalm 91 Watch”
“Though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.”
Proverbs 24:16 (NIV)
How come failure destroys some people, yet can make others stronger? The secret is – they allow failure to become their teacher, and turn their defeats into learning experiences.
We need to humbly ask God to help us that every challenge and obstacle will not be perceived as a stumbling block but instead be a stepping stone for something better to come.
You will not be able to do this by yourself! To achieve this positively, our mindset must be renewed by the Word of God – and not just using “positive thinking” concepts.
Some people just rely on ‘positive thinking’ but it is not reliable because it is incomplete. Take for instance, the concept of “success”. The world says, “Believe in yourself and go for it!” Their goals are focused on wealth, fame or status but the fact is – many people have all these but yet are sad and empty.
The Words of God says, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all this things will be added to you.” Matt. 6:33. His powerful Words can help us to look at things differently and it is proven in time that His Words truly has the ability to rescue, revive and ‘reengineer’ us to abundant living!
Spend time with His Word! Spend time with His Presence! You are not wasting time but a time worth investing and at the end – you will truly be successful!
You may falter but you will rise again!
