Falling and Rising

Today I read a wonderful verse from the book of Proverbs. Verse 16 of chapter 21 says this:

“for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.”

With that passage in mind, know that we will fall. Notice that is says “for though the righteous fall…” Not “if the righteous will fall…” This is because we are being told clearly that we are not perfect. Even us who believe and are saved are not perfect. We need to constantly be picking ourselves up when we fall, not if we fall!

Dont be discouraged by your mistakes. Be encouraged not to make them again. Dont turn away from God’s grace when you’re down. Run to it. Remember to pick yourself up when you fall. Thats what the righteous do!

Thanks for reading and may God bless you!
