(The Faith Forum Series – Batch 3)
I’m tired of being told I can’t, I wouldn’t or that I’m not good enough.
In my veins lie the resurrection power of God, the same power through which, after Jesus had been buffeted, beaten and crucified, he rose again on the third day!
That is how I , KNOW, that as down as I may get in life, I SHALL rise again. That is how I KNOW, that all that the Lord has planned and willed for my life WILL come to pass, despite how much time has passed, how many mistakes I have made, what people have said and the lies that that wicked devil has tried to make me believe. He only tries to make me believe something when I am the opposite and when God has purposed otherwise.
Since I was a child, the devil has relentlessly tried to make me believe that I am a nobody, he has lined people up to laugh at me and has sent all manner of oppression and abuse my way …BUT GOD!
My story is not yet over and it ends well because it ends in VICTORY!
I am more than enough through Jesus Christ. After all the insults, the humiliation, the disrespect, the oppression, the belittling and the abuse, by the grace of God I SHALL RISE AGAIN and I SHALL SOAR!
I am convinced that that evil one would never have sent so many people in my life to try to suppress me, if God didn’t plan for me to soar.
I believe Isaiah 40:31 when it states “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
Currently, I am being provoked severely almost on a daily basis, by diabolical people occupying high positions at my present work place where I am serving on a two year contract. It feels like such a prison sentence that I have joked that when I leave, I will need someone from that dreadful place, to sign my release papers. I have never felt this way about any other place in which I have been employed in the past.
When God delivers me from this latest onslaught of attack (such as which I have never experienced in all of my years of working experience), one day I will look back and give Him praise. This will be because despite all that those wicked persons did to try to destroy my spirit, it will be found that I am STILL beautiful (and one day God’s gonna send someone to see it), I am STILL a success, I am STILL rising and God will STILL be glorified in my ascent.
Thank you Jesus.
- “The Lord liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted…He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man. Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the heathen and sing praises unto thy name.” (Psalm 18:46, 48)
