THE COURAGE TO GO AGAIN
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
📆 Sunday, 13th August, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
“Then David arose from the earth, and washed, and anointed himself, and changed his apparel, and came into the house of the LORD, and worshipped:”
🔹 🔹 🔹
Often times after a (perceived) failure, many believers simply refuse to give themselves a second chance as a result of loss of confidence in self; what we sometimes call low self-esteem.
David’s first attempt to bring the Ark of the Covenant into Jerusalem ended in a disaster (2Sam. 6). The death of Uzzah could be attributed to David’s failure to heed the Lord’s prescriptions regarding how the Ark should be transported. For this, Uzzah died, yet David after a protracted season of remorse and fear returned to bring the Ark into Jerusalem in the proper and prescribed manner. This is instructive.
What mistake in your past are you yet to forgive yourself for? Though the consequences of your actions may have been grave, if you have sought and received the Lord’s forgiveness on the matter, it is time to move on with your life. Get up from the mire of guilt and low self-esteem. A forgiven man has the grace to step out and win where he has once failed! Halleluyah!

🌏 CHRISTIAN MISSION FOCUS
Let’s pray for Papua New Guinea 🇵🇬…
Though Christianity is the largest religion, effective discipling is the most urgent and prevalent need in this nation. Nominalism, pollution of Christianity with spiritism and occult are sadly widespread.
🙏🏼We are praying for the churches in the nation that the spirit of wisdom and revelation will rest upon them, that the eyes of their spirit will be enlightened.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Father, thank you for courage to move on, I refuse to be set back in life 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.
