TOPIC: BOUNCE BACK FROM CANCER!
PSALM 51: 1-19;
Armstrong had become a top swimmer and a triathlete during his teenage
years. Within a year or so, he had competed in the Junior World
Championships in Moscow. Sadly, on October 2, 1996, Lance was dealt a
crushing blow when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. The cancer
had also spread to his lung and his brain. Bit don’t forget that in
1999, the world wit witnessed the greatest comeback in sports history
as Lance Armstrong won the Tour de France, the most grueling sporting
event in the world, a three-week bicycle race of more than 2,200 miles
through the most rugged mountains in France, Italy and Spain. Yes, a man
diagnosed to die by doctors bounced back through determination/hope to
affect his generation for good! Note that no matter how your past or
present has been, or his discouraged you are, you can still bounce back
to your dreams! Even if you are spiritually dry/backsliding, make today
your comeback date! Hear Thomas Carlyle: “Permanence, Perseverance and
Persistence in spite of all obstacles, discouragements and
impossibilities: It is this, that in all things distinguishes the strong
soul from the weak.” Every setback is a set up for a comeback! God
wants to bring you out better than you were before! The devil would tell
you that it is too late, that God has forgotten you because he fears a
comeback! Resist him! Return to the church again! David bounced back!
Elisha and Job bounced back! I, Dr Chris, bounced back and you too must
bounce back! Lance has established the Armstrong Foundation, an
organization devoted to helping people to survive cancer. Hold on to
God. You will laugh because this is your year of uncommon evidence! I
see restoration! I see whatever you have lost coming back into your
hands in your EVIDENCE PACKAGE! It is never too late to be what you
might have been. And whether the devil likes it or not, you will bounce
back to heights unprecedented. Your past setback was God digging your
root deeper because when the root is deep, there is no need to fear the
