No, it doesn’t matter how many times you have failed and fallen; I will always be there to pick you up. Didn’t I say that if a righteous man falls seven times, he shall rise up again? My word is true. Failing or falling is part of the process of growing and succeeding. Therefore, instead of letting those stumbling blocks get you down; see those mistakes pushing you closer to reaching your destiny. What matters to Me is for you to get up and try again.
No longer look at your failures of the past. Instead, look at this day; this day that I have given you. It’s a fresh start, a new page that’s just turned. This day is your chance to start writing a new chapter in your life. How the story begins is up to you? Will you start your new day as a victim, allowing life to just happen to you? Or, will you rise up victorious with Me and cause a change to happen in your life through My name? It’s your choice; you can choose to rise up regardless of how many times you have fallen, or you can allow the strongholds of the enemy to keep you bound, and held captive in your past.
Now, rise up the eighth time, the twentieth time, or the one-hundredth time. Have you forgotten how many times you’ve failed? That’s OK; just a long as you REMEMBER to get back up again. Rise up and move on. Start over, and let’s write a new chapter in your life. It was a long road, but it is a “done road.” I can help you write the story of a lifetime; all you have to do is choose to rise in faith.
Every day is filled with brand new mercies; don’t take them for granted. See each day as an opportunity for you to write a new page in your life. Why not stop for a few moments now and write the first few lines of your new day. Go ahead, turn the page. Let go of all that is behind you and start afresh. No matter what has happened in the past; it’s over, it can’t hurt you anymore. Do not worry about the future, you are covered under My protection, and I have made provision for you. I have it all in My hand. Turn the page; today is the start of something new.
Whatever God has promised you, whether its healing, money, jobs, property, or ministry, it’s yours, but you must let go of the past and go forth and possess it. Let go of the burdens, the worries, the pain, let go and move on. Let go of the past and seek the Lord. Forget the mistakes and pain and ask the Lord for His divine directions for this coming year. Follow wherever He leads, then get ready for an exceeding abundantly NEW YEAR. It’s time to turn the page.
Read and Meditate on His Word:
Pro. 24:16 For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again:
Lam. 3:21-23 This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
2 Cor. 4:9 We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.
Php 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
