Children of God sometimes down is the way up. You maybe wondering what in the world I am talking about. However I believe if Joseph who was Jacob beloved son could testify he would tell you that down is the way up. You remember Joseph who was sold into slavery by his very own blood and then thrown into jail unjustly. I surmise to you that Joseph was down, but God elevated Joseph from the jail to second in command in all of Egypt. So I believe he would tell you that down is the way up!
Children of God sometimes down is the way up. If Jesus the Christ were to testify I believe he would tell that down is the way up. Jesus the Christ who being in the form of God thought it not robbery being equal to God but made himself of no reputation, took upon the form of a servant, and being made in the likeness of men, and being found in the fashion of man, he humbled himself and became obedient unto to death even unto the cross. And as resulted of his obedience God has exalted him and has given him a name above all names that at the name of Jesus the Christ every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord. I submit to you that down is the way up!
You may be down right down child of God but I submit to you that sometimes down is the way up. Therefore don't lose heart doing your down season because you to shall see the goodness of the LORD in the land of living if you keep the faith!!
