Welcome to today’s devotional! Let me start by telling you the story of my classmate. He wanted to be a paediatrician (a specialist doctor who treats children). He went on to sit for the postgraduate qualifying exams! 22 times he wrote the exams and 22 times he failed!
He didn’t want to write the exams anymore but was encouraged by friends to try one more time. He did and passed at the 23rd attempt. Also, hear this: On Saturday, 24th September, 2011, Barack Obama, elected as the first African-American President, told an audience of 3,000 blacks in a darkened Washington Convention Centre in the wake of rising black unemployment to “put on their marching shoes and follow him in the battle for jobs and opportunities.”
He reportedly told the blacks to stop complaining. He said to them: “Shake it off; stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying. Just keep pressing on. The future rewards those who press on.” These are timely words of comfort and wisdom for any discouraged soul using today’s devotional No matter how 2022 has been, throwing in the towel (giving in and giving up) won’t get you to your DIVINE SURPRISE TESTIMONY, but if you press on despite your many battles, you will get there. Most times in life, we get things wrong before we eventually get them right. So, getting things wrong, or not being able to make it the first or second time, or even the third time does not mean you won’t make it at all.
As 2022 progresses, don’t look at the obstacles, don’t be like the 10 discouraged spies. Don’t give up on that exam, driving lessons/tests, marital search, investments, etc. Don’t you ever say, “I am not able.” Rather, like Joshua and Caleb, say to yourself, “I AM NOT A QUITTER! I am well able to overcome it and I shall get there at last.” Let the words of the American President ring in your ears and heart: “The future rewards those who press on.” Get up and fight/try one more time! Hold on and hold out! This is your year!
