Henry Ford’s earlier businesses failed and he was broke five times before he founded the successful Ford Motor Company. Soichiro Honda was turned down by Toyota Motor Corporation for a job and he went on starting his own business to the company we now know as the multi-billion dollar Honda Motor. Alexander Graham Bell was ridiculed by a banker in Iowa when he referred to Bell’s innovation – the telephone as a toy. Talk about missing investment opportunities.
It is up for us to believe that we have everything every winner in the history had plus God. Our God is the God of Abraham, the God of Elijah, the God who parted the Red Sea and the God who crushed the wall of Jericho.
Stop looking at the past and start looking ahead. Don’t count your failures, celebrate the fact that you survived and made it this far. In spite what you have been through, you are still standing. God has graced you all these times for a reason and you too can rise and come out on the top like all the winners. Lift up your face, those who trust in the Lord shall not be shamed. Be assured that HE will enable you to stand firm and be a winner.
Then you will lift up your face without shame; you will stand firm and without fear.
