Get over it !!!

In everything give thanks.
1 Thessalonians 5:18

Consider Moses, the lawgiver and liberator to whom God gave the Ten Commandments. His name is still known all over the earth 4,000 years after his death. But remember, this same Moses was a murderer. He was listed in Egypt as “Public Enemy Number One”. He was a fugitive from justice who fled to the wilderness where he lived as a shepherd for 40 years. Yet with the chisel of adversity God was shaping Moses to stand in Pharaoh’s majestic palace and announce, “Let my people go!” A nation was born because this man refused to stop struggling to achieve his divine destiny.

Don’t be paralysed by your past. If God used Moses, He’ll use you. Everyone goes through adversity. The phrase to remember when things go wrong is: “Get over it!” Have you been hurt? Get over it! Have you been betrayed? Get over it! Have you failed? Get over it! Paul writes, “In everything give thanks.” In reversal, give thanks. In heartache, give thanks. In poverty and in prosperity, give thanks. God is greater than the criticism you’re getting. He’s greater than the giants you’re facing. He’s greater than the mountain you’re climbing. He’s greater than the burdens you’re carrying. Look at the Bible record of men and women who chose to focus on the silver lining, not the dark cloud. These people didn’t curse the darkness, they shone a light and scattered it. They chose the right attitude, an attitude of faith.

Come on, stop hiding from success because you’re afraid to fail. Failure means you’re a learner, not a loser. Stop fearing risk! Take God’s hand, step out and fulfil His purpose for your life.
