It’s Not Over

Posted on - in Encouragement

And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and named him Seth, for God has appointed another seed for me instead of Abel, whom Cain killed.

Genesis 4:25

It’s said, “That it’s not over until the fat lady sings.” But nothing could be farther from the truth. We serve a God of again, a God of second chances. If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off, pray and try again. It is our God who has the final say and decision. What we have to remember is that our help does not come from man, but God who made heaven and earth. All of the saints achieved greatness and the desires of their hearts because of Who they knew and Who they were with. As it is written, “For all things are possible with God.” So we can not do it from amongst ourselves, or rely on anyone else. We have all received some form of help from a family member or a friend at some point, but let it be known it was only the urging by the Lord inside of their hearts.

If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off, pray and try again.

Where do you want to be, what do you want to see, and what do you dream of? What if God was the one asking you these questions in that whisper, as He has been doing since the beginning? We have to be perfectly aligned with Him for us to know it’s not over. We have to see what He sees, go where He sends us, speak His words and do not be afraid on our path and second chances. It’s not over, don’t give up. Keep praying, keep persisting, have faith and working towards your dreams and heart desires.

The key is never going at it alone, even if you have a bunch of friends encouraging and supporting you around. We are nothing, and can do nothing, without Jesus in our boats. Trying to reach our destination without Him will only leave us in the storm getting nowhere. As it is written, “Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea, got into the boat and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was already dark, and Jesus had not come to them. Then the sea arose because a great wind was blowing. So when they had rowed about three or four miles they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near the boat; and they were afraid. But He said to them, It is I, do not be afraid. Then they willingly received Him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land where they were going.”

There are so many nuggets in that verse above, but I will say this: “On the road to where we want to be, there will be darkness and rough seas; but if we trust and wait on Jesus, we will get there. Do not give up on your dreams, it’s not over.”
