Unfortunately, we all have times in our lives when everything that could go wrong, will. We call this rock bottom. The encouraging thing about rock bottom is “the rock.”

Matt 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

If you find yourself at rock bottom, that means it is time to rebuild. God wants you to build your life. Begin building on the Word of God. Everything that has been said or done to you is cancelled in the name of Jesus! What does the Bible say about you? Build on that! Learn his promises so your foundation is sure. It may take a while to rebuild, but as long as you have a promise you have a future. (I used to hear my Elder say) When you reach rock bottom, you have a choice to get up or stay down. Your down time is the opportunity to pray and draw closer to Jesus. This is not a time to be depressed. We let the wrong feelings dictate our response in situations. So, hold your head up and walk with a smile. Rock bottom just means God is building you from the bottom up. He is building on the rock and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. You are victorious. Believe that!

Be encouraged,
