For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again…………..Proverbs 24 vs 16
That a man fails is not a news, that he fails again and again is the news, and that he fails out is a life tragedy.
Many men fall, and instead of getting back up and continuing with life’s journey, they stay down, thinking life will never get better. But that should not be the case , especially for the believer in Christ Jesus.
Today’s lesson states clearly that a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again.
The Message Translation says: No matter how many times you trip them up, God-loyal people don’t stay down long; Soon they’re up on their feet.
So is there anywhere you’ve experienced a fall in your life, and you feel that’s all there is to life, please don’t stay down there.
In your bible study, prayer life, finance, business, health, etc., know that you were not made to dig dirt like chickens, but to soar the sky like the eagles.
Therefore, determine today to rise again; ask the Lord to help you, and you shall see yourself soaring higher and higher.
Food For Thought: Champions are known to rise after a fall, so don’t stay down, rise again.
