DAY 23 – EVEN GOD STARTED OVER

 

Beloved,

As much as we would want things to go perfect in our world, there are times where things fall apart, it just doesn’t go the way it was planned. The Relationship, the job, the finances, the ministry, the Marriage and the friendships, sometimes things just go left.  What do you do? Where do you go? Who do you turn to? How do you feel after such a let down? Well, let’s see how God handled His own disappointment. In the Book of Genesis 6:6, God said “and it repented the Lord the He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.” verse 17 said “and behold, I even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heavens; and everything that is in the earth shall die.” So you see, God was bothered at what He created, He was not happy with what we call “life” so to speak. He was so angry that He wiped out all mankind (save one family). Just think about it, The God who is perfect, The God who makes no mistakes, The God of Heaven and Earth, Started over. How can He being so Perfect and Omniscient make a decision to start over and He’s God? We as imperfect Human beings miss the mark so many times. We make poor choices, we error, but we too must make the choice to “start over.” No matter how it ended, no matter what you lost, no matter when it happened, just like God saved Noah….He also Saved you. You didn’t die in all of this. Hurt, yes, disappointed, yes, discouraged, yes, but not dead. Which means God’s hands is still on you. There is a great purpose for you. You are still on God’s mind. What happened did not change your destiny, it only altered your journey.  That situation should have taken you out, but God said start over. You should have lost your mind, but God said Start Over. You might feel like it’s too late, but God said Start Over. By His Grace you can do it. Look for new days, new vision , new life.There’s light inside of you, although everything around you seems dark.  There’s strength inside of you, even though the walls have fallen apart. Let me encourage you, “Start Over.” I know it’s not as easy as it sounds, but start begins by starting. Start first in your mind, then feel it in your heart and let it take you from there. Make a “One Step Start”, into a new day. God will show you how. Re-build, Re-live, you’ve been Revived. You will look up as Noah did and see “Life” coming into your Ark. Maybe 1 by 1 or 2 by 2,  It will be something you never seen before. Don’t be surprised, God was in it this whole time and If the Potter can start over just think about what He’s using to start over.
