Down Is Not Your Destiny

Apr 22, 2022

Today's Scripture

Micah 7:7–8, TLB
As for me, I look to the Lord for his help; I wait for God to save me; he will hear me. Do not rejoice against me, O my enemy, for though I fall, I will rise again!

Today's Word

When we're in difficult times, it's easy to feel like the prophet Micah. He gave a list of negative things that happened to him--bad breaks, lack, injustice, betrayal. It was very depressing. But in today's Scripture, he went on to say that he wasn't giving up. He may have been knocked down, but in the middle of the difficulty, he was speaking victory. He was saying, "This problem didn't come to stay; it came to pass. God being for me is more than the world being against me. I will arise."

Things may be coming against you, but know this: God didn't create you to be overcome; He created you to be an overcomer. Down is not your destiny, and defeat is not how your story ends. If you're going to come out of that challenge, you have to stop talking defeat. Quit giving it the power to keep you down. When you declare, "I will arise," forces of darkness tremble and angels go to work. Get ready to rise!

Prayer for Today

Father, thank You for the call to rise up in the midst of my difficulties, to get my hopes up, to start expecting things to change in my favor. Thank You that You created me to be an overcomer and speak victory. I declare that I am looking to You, and I know that I will rise. In Jesus' Name, Amen
