Daily Devotional – 11/16/15 “Yet I’m still saved!”

I heard the song on the radio by Donald Lawrence titled, “Yet I’m still saved” and it went all through me. See, it doesn’t matter what you go through, you should be coming out saying yet I’m still saved. Yes I know the enemy has been showing out lately but proclaim, yet I’m still saved. Ok, the doctor has given you upsetting news, declare yet I’m still saved. You’re up this morning preparing for another procedure, another round of chemo, another dialysis treatment but say with me, yet I’m still saved. Yea, you probably checked your bank account this morning knowing good and well you got paid on Friday even though it doesn’t look like it but shout with me, yet I’m still saved. You may be trying to overcome the addiction but it seems easier said than done, say yet I’m still saved. Folk in the congregation acting up but declare, yet I’m still saved. This world were living in is in a disastrous state but announce so that they know, yet I’m still saved.

Beloved, whatever situation or circumstance you go through you should still come out saved. It doesn’t matter that folk have drug your name through the mud, come out still saved. It doesn’t matter that you got pregnant out-of-wedlock, go through it yet come out still saved. I get it; you’ve made your share of mistakes but come out still saved. Stop paying attention to the naysayers, stop dwelling on the fact that you’ve fallen down, stop staying in the pit of misery, stop throwing in the towel every time it gets hard; fight and come out still saved. Yes, the enemy may be camped outside your house with picket signs; he may show up at your worship place on Sunday, he may try to ruin bible study and choir rehearsal or he may be causing all kinds of hell in your family; come out still saved. Why? Because when you come out still saved, you can repent for the sins you’ve committed and be forgiven. When you come out still saved, you’ll still have the protection and covering of God. When you come out still saved, you can understand that even though I’ve fallen, you can get back up. If you decree that no matter what you face yet I am still saved, you’ll start to believe it and then walk in it. No matter what it looks like, say yet I’m still saved. Pain in my body, I’m still saved. Marriage in trouble yet I’m still saved. Job laid you off, yet I’m still saved. Temporarily out of funds, yet I’m still saved. Saved folk acting worse than the unsaved, yet I’m still saved! Go in saved and come out declaring yet I’m still saved!

–“Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong (1 Corinthians 16:13).”
