BEAT THE GOAL KEEPER
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
📆 Thursday, 17th August, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
“For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again…”
🔹 🔹 🔹
Defeat is like the goalkeeper in a football match put in place to stop you from hitting your goals.After you have gotten past the attackers (discouragement) and dribbled the defenders (distractions), there is always the trap of defeat that lays wait for the man who sets out to achieve a set goal. Much after he has crossed the ‘t’s and dotted the ‘i’s, he may still find himself denied of the much sought-after result. What then should he do? Well, of course, giving up is not an option.
Our scriptural text today is a perfect response when defeat comes calling: get up and refuse to be tagged a failure. Even if you are denied seven times, that is not a stamp of failure. Re-strategize; go again and again until you beat the final obstacle.
There is always a way around a mountain; therefore, do not be intimidated by its size, but find your way around it. Never let your mistakes or negative report give you a defeat mentality. Seek counsel from the Word of God, get wisdom, speak your victory, and confidently step forward to take what is yours! Halleluyah!

Let’s pray for Paraguay 🇵🇾…
The Roman Catholic Church has long dominated the spiritual and political life of Paraguay. Although it admirably opposes corruption and immorality, there is also much superstitious traditionalism. Paraguay has never had a true spiritual awakening, and just a few have a living relationship with Christ.
🙏🏼We are praying for spiritual awakening in the churches.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Father, strengthen me not to give up in Jesus name.
🔹 PRAYER OF REDEDICATION
Dear Father, I thank you for your mercies over me since the year began. I am grateful for your ever-abiding Presence in me and with me and I declare that my confidence is not in my own ability but in your Word. Help me to walk in faith throughout this month and to show forth your praises in all that I do. I consecrate my whole body, soul and spirit to you today. Let your Name be glorified in me in Jesus Name. Amen.
