Proverbs 24:16 – For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
There are times when you fail (and fall) so bad that you want to give up. You’re embarrassed, frustrated, guilt-ridden, and mad at yourself. Unlike the world that gives up on you when you fail, God gives you another opportunity to get it right. He gives you another chance to start over. He gives you a chance to rise and stand again.
God wants you to get back in the game.
You can overcome, but you will never know unless you get up.
Repent and rise! If you fall again, repent and rise again. Don’t give up. Keep your eyes on God and allow Him to help you to remain standing.
God has not given up in you. He is giving you another opportunity to overcome because He loves you.
Rise! Get back in the game!
