Sometimes you just feel defeated. Deflated.
It’s easier to just keel over and surrender to the relentless kicks in the guts rather than raising another fist to keep up the fight.
But then comes that bright light of Hope over the horizon. It is the promise of God – reminding us that:
No matter how many times you fall
No matter how many times you fail
No matter how many times you get kicked to the floor
You will never be defeated!
The songwriter declared of God:
“From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me, but they have never defeated me.
My back is covered with cuts, as if a farmer had plowed long furrows.
But the Lord is good; he has cut me free from the ropes of the ungodly.”
Psalms 129:2-4 (NLT)
Even after seasons of pain and anguish that cut so deep that it looks like your back has been plowed over by a farmers machinery, you will nonetheless remain undefeated.
Despite the apparent carnage, you can be confident that God is good. He is the one who has the ultimate say.
He will cut you free from the ropes of sin and slavery, from the bonds of fear and anxiety, and the roads of despair and defeat.
You will come out victorious as you trust in Him!
If you find yourself on the ground, lift up your eyes and put your hope and trust in Him once again.
Receive the truth that although you may have lost a few battles, you will NEVER be defeated!
