Has the devil ever had you down for the count with only seconds to spare and you mustered up the strength & courage to get back up, to keep moving forward? If so, why not dub yourself "the comeback kid". Shoot everyone else in the boxing industry has a nickname. Floyd Mayweather went from "pretty boy" to "money" in his career & Manny Pacquiao is "pac-man".
Regardless of the hand you were dealt in life I believe that each of you has it within you to go the distance. To go toe to toe with the greatest enemy on the earth. Why do I believe this you might ask? Because the God that is in you is much greater than him. And absolutely no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper you are more than a conquerer. Think I'm lying check it out.
1 John 4:4
"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
As it is written:
"For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered." No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The scriptures above give me life personally because they tell me that no matter how many times the enemy tries to knock me out I'm guaranteed victory. The key however, is to keep getting back up. The bible doesn't promise that fatigue won't set in, and that we won't get a few good uppercuts along the way. Trust me we're gonna have a few scrapes & scars when it's all said & done. But if we don't grow weary in well doing, if we faint not, we will reap a harvest in due season. Boom!!
"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."
There you have it, the enemy will deceive you by making you think that a few minor bruises means defeat. Nope not at all, so bring it on. That's the attitude you've got to have or else you'll never win. With God in your corner as your personal trainer how can you not succeed?
I smell a knock out coming your way, a heavy weight title for the kingdom is yours for the taking. The cool part is that you getting bragging rights here on Earth but then once you leave this place he will say well done thy good & faithful servant now come unto me. The real reward will be in Heaven. Now there you go "comeback kid" whatever you do, don't ever give up on God because God will never give up on you!
As you go forward in your daily journey I extend love & peace to each of you. I pray that you find your "it" and that you OWN IT. That the chains of this world be broken off of you & that you walk in the light that God intended you to walk in.
With dedication & servitude
