You can start again

‘Though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again.’
Proverbs 24:16 NIV
1. On the night of Dec 9, 1914, Edison Industries was destroyed by fire. The loss exceeded $2 million, along with the majority of Thomas Edison’s work. He was insured only for $238 because the buildings were constructed of concrete, which was thought to make a building fireproof.
2. At 67yrs of age, the great inventor watched his life’s work go up in flames. The next morning after firefighters had finally brought the inferno under control, he surveyed his charred dreams & crushed hopes. As he looked at the scene, he said, ‘There is great value in disaster
3. All our mistakes are burned up. Thank God we can start anew.’ 3 weeks after the fire, Edison produced one of his greatest inventions: the first phonograph. Try to imagine the world of music and entertainment without it! The Bible says, ‘For though the righteous fall 7 times,..
4. they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.’ With God on your side you can begin again because the power to do it resides within you. It’s the same power that raised Christ from the dead (see Romans 8:11). Paul prayed for believers at Ephesus:
5. 'That out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being’ (Ephesians 3:16 NIV 2011 Edition). Where is your strength? ‘In your inner being.’
6. He continues: ‘Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us’ (Ephesians 3:20 NIV 2011 Edition). So the word for you today is – you can start again.

This is your morning dew. For your loss you will get more and for your tears you will laugh at last. Regardless of what the enemy thinks, you will succeed in Jesus Name Amen 🙏
