“…I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.” Philippians 3:13
One night I went to sleep feeling very discouraged. When I woke up the next morning, the Lord lead me to step outside for a talk with Him. I looked out at the sunrise, heard the chirping sound of the birds, and the wind blowing in the trees. Then God spoke to my heart, “Has the earth stopped?” I said, “No.” “Has the sun stopped shining?” He said. I replied, “No.” Then the Lord said to me, “So it is with life. Life goes on. The world doesn’t come to an end, My daughter, just because someone disagrees with you. The world doesn’t come to an end just because someone abandons you or chooses to no longer support you. The world doesn’t stop just because you made a mistake. Life goes on.”
God wants to teach us how to move forward, and how to bounce back. You can’t remain stuck in yesterday. No matter what has happened in your life, know that everything is alright in Christ. If God has orchestrated His creation to continue to go on throughout the ages, He can help you continue to go on as well. He is most faithful. Your world hasn’t come to an end no matter what the devil is saying. Take a look outside my dear. The sun is still shining. The birds are still chirping. The wind is still blowing in the trees. So if that is the case, there is still hope for you. Continue to shine for His glory. Continue to move forward through Christ. Continue to show how faithful your God is.
Prayer: My Lord, thank you for encouraging my heart. Thank you for helping me see how life goes on. My world doesn’t come to an end just because of the situations I face. Keep teaching me Lord how to move forward from disappointment and how to walk in newness of life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Amen and Amen! Surely thank God He does not allow the world to come to an end just because someone decides to act devilishly towards us. Master Jesus is in control! Amen!!!
It is indeed a truism that life goes on. This message reminds me of the passing on of my dearest dad. In spite of the pain and loneliness that i felt, i realised that people were going about their normal life. I could prevent myself from eg. taking a bath just because a “part of me was no more. Somtimes when very great celebrities pass on, life seem to momentdrily come to a stand still; but in reality, life moves on. Whoever is in the night season of her life, be encouraged the sun will shine again. Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. No matter what the devil does, he can’t prevent the breaking of dawn. Jehovah has our backs!!!
Thanks k.k…good words♡
Sorry about the errors. I meant i couldn’t prevent myself from not eg. bathing just because my dear dad was no more. Similarly, the passing on of a celebrity does not cause the world to stop ; though momentarily, it appears so.
Thank you Father for the wisdom you give to your children you are truly truly so awesome that my mind cannot fully grasp your holiness you are my Savior Jesus Christ
I love this morning’s devotional as I love them all they are so wonderful I love reading the comments they’re so encouraging as you know from my previous comments I have stated what I’ve gone through with my husband but God has never failed me I also had stated that I had got a 30 day notice from my landlord and one day about a week and a half before August was over I sat in my car after church and I prayed for God to help me find a place I saw on an apartment on a app and a phone number for a place I jotted it down when I went back to see the apartment again it was no longer on the app so I was like mind boggled then I called the number it said go straight to the unit I was a little scared but I went straight to the unit I looked it over it was really nice it’s like two and a half blocks away from my church that night I did the application online which I don’t even know how to do anything online and I had my friend do it just to find out the next day that all her information was erased so I had to then do it by myself upload my personal documents which I did I called the next day on Tuesday the Holy Spirit prompted me to call and the owner said she got plenty of applications but since I was the only one who called she was going to show it to me and she showed it to me I liked it she liked me and I got my apartment so God is so good and he lets me know every day that the world does not end just because I’m going through struggles as I’ve told so many people in my life he answers every single one of my prayers and he surely does he really truly does he is so faithful he is so awesome he is my best friend and people look at me like what’s going on when I’m going through trials and testing as well we will go through them and we will go through them even more if we take ourselves out of the will of God or if we want to work on our own free will and my husband decided with his own free will to leave me and I can’t change him all I can do is pray for him and I’m not going to blame my heavenly father for it because I know there’s times when I’ve taken myself out of the will of God and things don’t go my way but yet he is still faithful he is still loving me he comforts me in every way he sustains me he is my refuge and my strength and my redeemer and I just wanted to share my praise report with you my sisters from all over the world thank you Much love in Christ DHR💖🙏💪💃
