Topic: God Will Help You Through The Storm [TREM 8 October 2018 Daily Devotional]
When God says He will help, that is heavy. Sometimes, you look at yourself and one of the things the devil does is to make you feel inadequate. Do you think that God doesn’t know that you are inadequate? You are telling Him what He already knows about you. Remember that He says: “You are mine”! Think of it! You messed up, yet He says you are mine. You still belong to Him. He chose to be your Redeemer. You didn’t choose Him. He chose you.
You see, the life of a believer is a life of victory. It is from victory to victory. No defeat. The fact that, you are on the floor does not mean you are defeated. No, you cannot be defeated. Why? There is a bounce back mechanism that God put inside you. You are going to bounce back! No matter what, the redeemed of the Lord will always bounce back. There is nothing like fatal failure for the redeemed because of our strong Redeemer. The redeemed of the Lord always comes back. There is nothing like he is lost in oblivion. No! He will always return. People may say: “Let me see what becomes of you”! But suddenly they will see you coming back in glory.
This is why God says to you today: “Fear not…. when thou passeth through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee…” That means you won’t drown. You may not know how to swim, but somehow the sustaining hands of God will keep you through that storm, through that pain and through that agony. You will float in the waters of life. The fire of affliction will not consume you. If He brought Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego out; He is bringing you out too. You will bounce back in Jesus Name.
