TOPIC: THE PHOENIX! JUST AFTER THAT MISTAKE
BASIC SCRIPTURE: COLOSSIANS 4: 1- 12. THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR(2020) – READ YOURS TODAY CLICK HERE
Welcome to another devotional encounter with He who will wrap up the heavens and the earth as vestures (Hebrews 1: 12)! It was Janet Fitch who wrote: The phoenix must burn to emerge. In Ancient Greek stories, a PHOENIX is a long-lived bird that regenerates or is otherwise “born again.” It is a bird associated with the sun! A PHOENDX obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. Ancient legend paints a picture of a magical bird, radiant and shining, which lives for several hundred years before it dies by bursting into flames. It is then reborn from the ashes, to start a new, long life. Daily Manna April 2020 Day 22 – THE PHOENIX! JUST AFTER THAT MISTAKE

So powerful is the symbolism that it is an image that is still used commonly today in popular culture and folklore stories. The legendary PHOENIX is a large, grand bird, much like an eagle or peacock. It is brilliantly coloured in red, purple, and yellow, as it is associated with the rising sun and fire. So, Janet Fitch was only reminding us that the PHOENIX had to BURN to be re-born! So, the process of passing through the FIRE is what transforms the bird from one level of glory to another Your passing through your fire of ERRORS or heat of MISTAKES FAILURE is what creates another YOU; a bigger, wiser and better YOU! JUST REFUSE TO CONDEMN YOURSELF or allow DEPRESSION! Hear Lance Amstrong: “Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever. So true! The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing! C.S. Lewis opined: “Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.” Failures and mistakes are detours! NOT DEAD ENDS! Ask Apostle John Mark.

John Mark abandoned Paul and became backshadden from the rigours and pain of missionary work! But years later, when Paul was sitting in prison awaiting trial, he wrote a Ietter to the church at Colossae, informing them that John Mark was with him and had been a great comfort, but he also told them that they were to welcome John Mark if he showed up. This kid that had sorely disappointed Paul had now become a man who brought him comfort. That is rising from failure (Col. 4:10-11)! Indeed, in life, failure should be your teacher and not your cemetery! Learn, laugh at your mistakes, and move on! Your best days are ahead!
