LEARN FROM FURY
Ecclesiastes 9:4 – But whoever is among the living has hope; a live dog is better than a dead lion. (NET)
The story of the reigning heavyweight boxing champion shows that there is hope for the living. Five years ago, Tyson Fury got addicted to cocaine, alcohol and weighed over 300 pounds. He lost his mind, battled depression and contemplated suicide. However, in 2018, Fury returned to the boxing ring, and despite mockingly written off, he has not lost a single fight to date. After winning his last bout, the tall boxer gave Jesus the glory while proclaiming Him as the only true God.
David’s experience in 1 Samuel 30:6-8 also comes to mind because he was in distress after the Amalekites raided his town. But, he inquired of the Lord and pursued the enemies until he recovered all. I decree in the mighty name of Jesus, your lost crown is restored in multiples.
Beloved, have you been suppressed by life, immorality, addictions, and everything that negates God’s principles? There is hope for you because God preserved your life to save and beautify it. If you come to Him, He will accept you, give you a new beginning like Tyson Fury and restore your losses as of David (2 Corinthians 5:17). As seen in our Bible reading, the living is better than the dead because life brings hope. Therefore, never give up! What is coming is far glorious than the past. Hold on and work hard (prayer and diligence-Job 14:7-9).
Hymn: Jesus Saves – Priscilla J. Owens (1882)
1. Father, if I am sinking. Please, rescue, rebuild and awake the giant in me.
1. Praise God as led till you have inner peace.
2. Father, where necessary, please encourage me not to give up!
3. Lord Jesus, please rewrite my story (mention).
A DOWNFALL IS NOT A PERMANENT SITE. ARISE!
