ODM Daily 7 January 2020
TOPIC: I AM UNDER CONSTRUCTION; BORN TO BREAK RECORDS
BASIC SCRIPTURE: 1 SAMUEL 17: 21-37
Your struggle does not define you! Your reaction to that struggle will. Whether faced with a life-altering disease, decision, or situation, how you react exposes hidden personality traits of the CHAMPION within In this New Year 2020, ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE A PROJECT IN GOD’S HANDS AND YOU ARE STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION! No matter what happens, always declare to yourself daily: “GOD HAS NOT FINISHED WITH ME! I CANNOT FAIL” Note that there was a CHAMPION in DAVID that was not discovered till Goliath showed up! Face the challenges of life with strength and courage! Most people give up just when they’re about to achieve entry into their ELEVATION LAND.
They quit at the last mile of the race! Yes! They give up at the last minute of the game, one foot from a winning touchdown! That was what happened to DAVID’s brothers and all the war Generals of ISRAEL! They ran from Goliath! They gave up just a few minutes to their ELEVATION! Refuse to join that group this year! Do you know that any of them would have been the NEW WORLD CHAMPION on that day? But the trophy went to DAVID! Always declare: “THERE IS A CHAMPION IN ME. IT SHALL BE DISCOVERED THIS YEAR. I SHALL NOT QUIT TRUSTING THIS GOD!” William Ward noted. Adversity causes some men to break, others to break records Yea! ALWAYS DECLARE: “I was born to be a RECORD BREAKER!” Oh, your new name is RECORD BREAKER! No wonder Satchel Paige cautioned: “Never let your head hang down.
Never give up and sit down and grieve. Find another way.” Hear Pat Riley: “There are only two options regarding commitment. You’re either IN or you’re OUT! There is no such thing as life in-between.” Oh, I love that! Then Jack Dempsey quipped: “A champion is someone who gets up when he can’t.” Even when all the ODDS are against you, determine to GET UP and KEEP GOING! “Gold medals aren’t really made of gold. They’re made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.” (Dan Gable). That is why even when the trophy carries dust at last, MEMORIES of how you ENDURED, last forever!
Congratulations in advance for this year! I see you DANCING at the top! (Wow! Why don’t you share this inspiration with others by giving them a copy of this great devotional? Give out at least 20 copies this week)! This Saturday, 11th January is the beginning of the 21-day fasting programme. Begin to cut down on your food intake! 2020 is your ELEVATION PARTY!
