This morning, I felt the Lord directing me to encourage you in your struggles. It was like He said to tell you that you may be down, but take heart . . . encourage yourself in His Word.
Are you feeling down or out? Well… get ready cause You’re Coming Up.
My fine wife, Bev, and I understand being down. We’ve been there several times. Working together like we do, we’ve both lost our jobs at the same time . . . more than once! We could have been down for the count . . . BUT God.
That’s right, no matter how far you’ve been down or what evil has come against you . . .God is well able to bring you up and out.
Proverbs 24: 15,16 in the Message Bible warns anyone who comes against His own:
“Don't interfere with good people's lives; don't try to get the best of them. No matter how many times you trip them up, God-loyal people don't stay down long; Soon they're up on their feet, while the wicked end up flat on their faces.”
When it seems there is no hope. . .He is your hope.
Fortunately, that’s all you need.
Psalm 31:24 in the King James Version says:
“Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.”
