THE GOD OF A THOUSAND CHANCES
“Today is the day I will pray at every turn,” I have vowed more mornings than I can count. To me, this means to pray whenever I stop doing one thing and turn to another. But then I forget mid-morning, mid-afternoon, or after supper; and give up for that day, to start over again the next. Often, I have felt so defeated that several days went by before making that vow one more time.
Then one morning, in front of the fireplace downstairs, He spoke from my spirit into my mind, “I am the God of a thousand chances. When you fall, I will pick you up.” With that word, I realized I could start over again at any point of time in the day. I didn’t have to wait until the next morning.
How is it with you, my friends? Is there something you desire to do to honor the Lord, only to fall short time after time? Remember, He is the God of a thousand chances who will pick you up a thousand times. And when He does, dust yourself off and continue on in humility and determination.
