There Is Hope For You
“For there is hope for a tree, if it is cut down, that it will sprout again, and that its tender shoots will not cease. Though its root may grow old in the earth, and its stump may die in the ground, yet at the scent of water it will bud and bring forth branches like a plant." Job 14:7-9 NKJV
I've met people who were once successful, whose businesses were doing so well until for certain reasons, they lost everything; and then after a while they bounced back. The downfall of a man is not the end of his life! As long as there is life, and as long as there is a God Who answers prayers, and with Whom nothing is impossible, there is always hope of recovery!
You know how strong and great Samson was, and you know about all the exploits he did: but Samson lost his strength after he told Delilah his secret. The Philistines removed his eyes, and they made him a grinder in the prison. From grace to grass! But the Bible says that the hair of his head began to grow again! Then Samson called to the Lord, “O Lord God, remember me, I pray! Strengthen me, I pray, just this once, O God, that I may with one blow take vengeance on the Philistines for my two eyes!” God heard him, and we are told the dead that he killed at his death were more than he killed in his lifetime.
Hear me, the last has not been heard of you! Greater success awaits you! Your achievements of the past are nothing compared to what God can still do through you! Get up! Dust yourself! Look up! Forget the past! You are not a loser! Start again! It's never over until you win! You will rise again in Jesus name! Amen!
