CAN YOU TRY AGAIN❓
“…Seven times Elijah said, ‘Go back'” (1 Kings 18:43, NIV).
TEXT:1 Kings 18:41-46
Lieut.Col. Odimegwu Ojukwu’s army was once defeated and scattered by a powerful enemy whose strength and resolve had been badly underestimated. Ojukwu himself had managed to escape into an old deserted Bunka while the enemy troops scouted the country side in search for him. His troops were either hiding or running.
Desperate and defeated, Odimegwu lay with his face In the dirt of that old Bunka floor watching an Ant attempt to carry a single kernel of corn over a perpendicular wall. The kernel was much larger than the Ant and so it was quiet a struggle. Sixty-nine times the Ant attempted to carry it up the wall. The Lieut. Col. counted each attempt. Sixty-nine times the Ant fell back with his oversized load. On the seventieth trial, the tenacious Ant managed to push the grain of corn over the top.
This demonstration of strength and persistence and final victory in the face of overwhelming obstacles so excited col.Odimegwu that he leaped to his feet with a shout. Quickly he left his hiding place, recognised the forces he could mobilise and went into the battle again. This time he was triumphant, putting his enemies to fight, until the War ended up in “No Victor No Vanquish”,
Many times in life we tend to give up after a few failed attempts. But God’s Word is encouraging us that we need not easily give up. Is it not surprising that Elijah had to keep praying for the rain God had promised to send? He continued to pray and kept checking up for the sign until he got it. Keep pressing forward, there is a sound of abundance. But if you TRY and fail, please TRY Again until victory is assured.
Don’t give up; Winners never Quit and Quitters never Win.
Lord, help me to develop a never giving up spirit.
