THE WORD FOR TODAY - ONE MORE TIME


Then Samson prayed to the LORD, "Sovereign LORD, remember me again. O God, please strengthen me just one more time..." 
-Judges 16:28 (NLT)

At times, it seems we have blown up every opportunity we have, we could have messed up on several occasions and the enemy is telling us that it is all over. Listen, it is not over until it is over, there is one more coming up. Samson was anointed by God and was mighty in God's hands, however, he was brought down by sin, the enemy found a loop hole in his life through which he penetrated and caused him to loose what God deposited in him. Nevertheless, Samson was able to bounce back. Our verse for today talks about his prayer to God for restoration, he acknowledged God as his Lord and King, and sought His face, our God is a merciful God, {2 Chronicles 30:9}, if we return to him and ask for His mercy He is able to forgive us and restore us. Note that Samson killed more Philistines when he died than when he lived, in fact it was Samson's choice to die, God did for him exactly what he asked, I believe if he only asked for God to restore him and not for him to die with the philistines he would have had it. He had a greater accomplishment after he remembered God and came back to Him. Like the father of the prodigal son, God will be waiting for us to come back to Him; He has a destiny and purpose for our lives. if you have missed it once and feel you can't get back up again, that is a lie of the enemy, you can bounce back, don't let the devil hold you back with guilt and condemnation, as long as you repent and turn to God, He can lift you up again. A song writer said 'we fall down, but we rise up, for a saint is just a sinner who fell down, but got up', the tragedy will be for you to fall and remain down, get up and bounce back. 
Have a brilliant week ahead and happy new month.
