What if …

What if the fall you’ve taken wasn’t meant to punish you but to position you? What if the fall wasn’t meant to punish you but place you in a position to be chosen? What if the fall that crippled you, is also the thing that changes you? What if the thing that hurts you, turns out to be the very thing that hides you until God honors you? What if the mistake that caused jail time, was the thing God is going to use to bless you? What if the bad decisions that ruined your credit and put you in a desolate place is the very place, you’ll hear God calling your name to be used?

Sometimes, it’s in the low place when we seek God and it’s in our desolate place where you can’t produce a harvest, that causes us to hold to God’s unchanging hand. Sometimes, it takes us falling into a sunken place that makes us try God again. Sometimes, we may have to experience Lo-debar before we believe God can provide.

Just thought I'd share this for somebody who's experiencing a dark, dry, desolate season of your life. You think God has forgotten you, but what if like Mephibosheth, in Second Samuel 9, the king is about to bless you because the low place is what kept you alive?

Destiny Nugget

The only reason the devil is bringing up your past is to make you abort the purposed potential God has given you for this present time.

Yes, you’ve made mistakes.
Yes, you’re making mistakes.
Yes, you’ve sinned.
Yes, you’re in sin.
Yes, you’re not perfect.
Yes, you’ll mess up.

However, God knows you (flaws and all) and He trust you. Why not trust Him with you by saying yes.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you,” says the Lord. “I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes. I will gather you out of the nations where I sent you and will bring you home again to your own land.”” — Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11-14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Devotional Nugget: Don’t judge the process

Don’t ever judge the progress of spiritual promotion by the process because the pain will leave you pondering if it’s worth it.

Instead, focus on the promiser (God) who has the power to promote you because of your potential even after you’ve failed the evaluation.
