1 Kings 19:9 -- 21

Ecclesiastes 12:12-14 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
13: Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14: For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Psalm 119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

I have fallen and I canít get up.
I have fallen and I donít want to get up.
I have fallen and I like the mud.
Or, hear the call, try again. Press on.

I ponder if we understand what our assignment before God is?
THE ADVERSITIES THAT COME ALONG TO BURY US USUALLY HAVE THE POTENTIAL SOLUTION WITHIN THEM. THE VERY REAL POTENTIAL IS THAT WE CAN MAKE IT, THIS WILL BENEFIT US!

GET OVER IT and GET UP and GO AGAIN.

Each believer has several general tasks and several specific tasks that Jesus has assigned to our duty.

Some of these are delegated authority, some direct.
Some opportunities missed might return, but some opportunities missed may never return.

Can we say honestly, we our doing our complete duty?
We can never do our duty, until we identify what it is!
The more effort we give, the better the understanding will develop.

Notice how fleeting the state of man is ---
yesterday in embryo;
today opportunity;
tomorrow regret and unfinished deeds?
GET OVER IT and GET UP and GO AGAIN.

So for what ever time we have, we should know our assignment and exercise all effort to accomplish our purpose.

Live life with a plan, be obedient to that plan -- invest all your efforts with joy, and when the day comes to depart life, -- you can smile.

As an olive is a bloom on the tree, then a fruit hanging, developing, and then ripping.
We must see that the olive has matured through seasons.
It will be crushed and become a drop of olive oil.
All of this is a process of time.

We must recognize the season that grew the little olive, the tree that matured it, and the process of time that the Father has planned.
GET OVER IT and GET UP and GO AGAIN.

Why not see this in our walk?
We can develop wrongful, invalid conclusions and values about our assignments by the teachings of society, by the daily menial life at home, by our goals for materialism and business, and by entertainment and emotions that make us feel good.

The control and manipulation attitudes and spirits try to reign in subtle ways.
The "feel good" mentality that has invaded the camp of God will never stand the TEST OF TIME.

Pain, bitterness, hurt, and being offended are parts of this process.
We must develop a strategy to overcome, we are VICTORS not victims.

Joseph illustrates the plan of God may lead through long valleys that we can never understand, until
