  • Don't lay in wait, wicked man, against the habitation of the righteous. Don't destroy his resting-place: For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises up again; But the wicked are overthrown by calamity. Proverbs 24:15'16 WEB.

    Your journey ends when you will no longer get up and try. Many times in my life, I began to feel that I had let God down, made the wrong decision, and possibly wrecked His plan for my life. Then when I finally fell on my face before God, repented, and poured out my heart to the Lord in prayer, He would respond: "Ok, now pull yourself together and let's get back to work."

    God didn't dwell on my past sins or guilt. I just repented and was soon moving forward again. He knows that our life is but a breath here, and He wants to make the most of it. We can't change the past. We can only learn from it and try to do better next time. So when you stumble, say you're sorry, repent, turn away from the bad, and move forward with your life.

    When I feel like I have lost my way and don't know where to turn, I go into a room, shut the door, and lay on my face in prayer until His presence comes. It may take a few minutes or a couple of hours, but eventually, a Rhema (spoken) word comes, bringing new direction and a fresh vision. For a word from God changes everything.

    There is no replacement for spending quiet time in prayer and listening. He told us, "My sheep hear My voice" (John 10:27). I know there is never enough time, but everyone has twenty-four hours in their day, and we spend it on what we think is important. Give God a couple of them, and you will not regret it. Try Facetime. You might like it.

    God has such a beautiful plan for your life, but we all stumble along the way. All of us do. When we do, God waits patiently for us to get back up. If you are down today, know that God is waiting for you to take His hand again. When you do, He will pull you back up to your feet and begin to restore the hope in your life.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please draw me to You. Ignite a desire inside of me to seek Your face like never before. Please cover me with Your presence and peace, and give me a fresh vision today. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

I praise God and yes, I trust in Him, accepting that only because of His mercy, anything happens. Todays devotional reminded me of my favorite poem and I wanted to share it. I hope no one takes it wrong.

How Did You Die?
by
Edmund Vance Cooke


Next  

Did you tackle that trouble that came your way
With a resolute heart and cheerful?
Or hide your face from the light of day
With a craven soul and fearful?
Oh, a trouble's a ton, or a trouble's an ounce,
Or a trouble is what you make it,
And it isn't the fact that you're hurt that counts,
But only how did you take it?
You are beaten to earth? Well, well, what's that?
Come up with a smiling face.
It's nothing against you to fall down flat,
But to lie there -- that's disgrace.
The harder you're thrown, why the higher you bounce;
Be proud of your blackened eye!
It isn't the fact that you're licked that counts,
It's how did you fight -- and why?
And though you be done to the death, what then?
If you battled the best you could,
If you played your part in the world of men,
Why, the Critic will call it good.
Death comes with a crawl, or comes with a pounce,
And whether he's slow or spry,
It isn't the fact that you're dead that counts,
But only how did you die?

Amen and Amen!!! There is so much to learn and improve upon! One thing is "patience", patience to wait on the Lord, patience to be able to really listen to hear His voice! I'm slowly learning that "he who waits upon the Lord will truly be strengthened" because He loves us so much and is so patient with us, He is our loving Heavenly Father!!, Thank you my Lord and God, my Heavenly Father!!!

I am getting caught up on these! I read a lot of devotionals, but yours are some of my favorites! I have had a hard time praying in my life because I felt like other people had worse problems and mine were mostly my own fault, and when I'd try to pray for others, I'd get overwhelmed. My pastor told me about the little girl who was saying her ABCs with her hands held as in prayer. Her dad asked her what she was doing, and she said, "I don't know what to say, so I'm just giving God the letters because he already knows." And I think of a little kid crawling into their parent's lap and just sitting there absorbing the love.
