"And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel."
When man committed the first sin, God was not left stranded. God had already put a plan in place before the beginning of time for man's redemption. Eph 1:3-5. God was not confused in the face of man's betrayal. God did not give up in the face of the mistake by His most precious creation. When the original plan did not work because of man's transgression God was not depressed.
This is a word for someone out there. Whatever God has said about you or whatever He has called you to do does not have to be cut short. Irrespective of where you are right now, the setbacks you may have suffered on the journey or the mistakes you have made so far, God's purpose for your life remains the same. As a child of God you can never lose hope. God still intends for you to be all that you were created to be. His plan for you has not changed.
As you face the rest of 2013 I want to encourage you to go back to what God has called you to do; go back to the places you may failed at in the past. We are made in the image and likeness of God. Gen 1:26. Just as God demonstrated in Gen 3:15, stay committed to the plan and walk with God into the fullness of His plans and purposes. God loves you and He will never leave you nor forsake you. Arise and be who you were called to be.
I look forward to hearing about your victories as you walk with God and go back to places of previous defeats.
