Have you ever been beaten down to the ground to the extent of being helpless, at the point of giving up and all you want to do is just give up. When you have just reached this point you are did courage, you are de-motivated, even your confidence is shaken and you can lose faith in everything.
Look at 2 Corinthians 4 vs 8-9
says, “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed, we are perplexed but not in despair, Persecuted but not forsaken cast down but not destroyed”.
I live in a country where there is hyper- inflation, levels of unemployment are shocking, prices are sky rocketing, citizens have lost hope in the local currency, we can’t even keep money in banks. We have been struck down to the ground but we are not destroyed. Our transport system is struggling because of the high fuel prices and proper roads, our healthy sector is suffering because the doctors are on strike for lack of basic drugs and good working conditions.
There is a lot of stress management and mental health management needed in our citizens. A lot of people are living from hand to mouth. A lot of people are leaving the country seeking for greener pastures. People are just doing anything, everything just to survive and earn a dollar. Yes we are struck down but we are not destroyed
Have you ever been struck down? Have you ever not looked forward to go through a day because you felt struck down? Think of it in your life, in that moment or season when you felt helpless and when life beats you from left right and centre. When you woke up and ask God questions why me, and tell him how you need a break through, when everything was not working like it should be talk of your career, work, school, relationship .as much as you are struck down refuse to be destroyed be hopeful, be cheerful, be inspired and be ignited. In every situation it is important that you find and understand your competitive advantage.
Ponder Points- Struck down but not destroyed
What is your Competitive Advantage?
If it is up to you then DO IT!!!
