It's not over!

It does not matter what the enemy is working against you, or what you’re struggling with, the bible says:

Isa 54:17 No weapon that is formed against you shall be able to prosper.

The bible did not say that Satan would not form weapons against you, or that he would not launch them at you, or that they would not touch you.

But what the bible does say is: It shall not prosper, it shall not accomplish its intended purpose.

As a matter of fact: The bible teaches us that all things, work together for good to them who love the Lord and are the called according to his purpose. Ro 8:28

It doesn’t matter who you are or how spiritual you are, at some point life is going to deal you a blow.  Unexpected, undesired situations and problems that catch you off guard, and send your life reeling.

The good news is, that even though we all will at some point encounter these unexpected unplanned for attacks, problems, and circumstances.

We have the promise:

2Co 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in every place.

And Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony.

I want to talk to somebody today who has been knocked down, life has thrown you an unexpected curve, divorce, sickness, A financial disaster, your child is on drugs, your company down sized and they let you go.  Your dreams have been crushed.

It can be a thousand different things, but the bottom line is: you didn’t expect it and it hurt, it threw your life into a tail spin.

It knocked you off your feet, but this is the biggest mistake the devil made, because when a Christian is knocked off their feet they fall to their knees, and when they fall to their knees they touch heaven, and when they touch heaven hell trembles.

You may have lost a round but you’re still in the fight!

I cannot say that I will never be knocked down
I cannot say that I will never be caught off guard
I cannot say that I will never be troubled or perplexed or even forsaken,

But I can say: I’m going to make it.

I can say: Nothing shall separate me from the Love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I can say: 2im 1:12 I know whom I have believed and I am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I’ve committed unto him against that day.

I can say: Ro 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

I can say: Ro 8:37-38 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

You may have lost a round, you may have had the breath knocked out of you, you may have a black eye, and a busted lip and a bloody nose.

But the best is yet to come:

Your set back, is just a setup, for a comeback.

And ye are of God little children and have overcome them for greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. 1Jn 4:4
