I failed, but…

Proverbs 24:16For 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!

Rise Again

Failing is never easy. We want to live a righteous and holy life for God, then we do something that bring us into sin. We feel horrible, unworthy, and far from the love of our Father in Heaven. It seems that we’ll never be able to make it back to where we need to be, let alone where we were before we fell.

Proverbs 24:16For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

Solomon wrote to his son about the difference of a just man and the wicked. The difference is where they will end up. A just man may fall several times, but in each instance he rises again to his ‘position’ of being just. The wicked may have been standing, but will fall (go into) mischief. The just man will return to his position of being just. The wicked will go into mischief and remain.

The Lord will help you live for Him. Keep walking toward Him…

Don’t open your mouth when:

1. In the heat of anger- Proverbs 14:17, [He that is] soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated.

2. When you don’t have all the facts- Proverbs 18:13, He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.

3. When you haven’t verified the story- Deuteronomy 17:6, At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; [but] at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.

A New Thought

Many people want to live a better life. They can visualize themselves as a loving parent, a faithful friend, and committed to serving the Lord with all their heart. However, what they see in reality is far from what they imagine in their mind.

What’s going wrong?! How can I get my life on the right track?!

There may be a number of things you must specifically accomplish to live the life the Lord desires for you to live. However, they cannot begin without a new way of thinking.

Lifelong Learners

Proverbs 23:12Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.

After years of public school (college, etc.), the last thing many people want to do is read and study. As disciples of Jesus Christ, you’ll learn that a lifetime of learning will be extremely beneficial in remaining faithful and committed in your walk with Him.

Reading, meditation, and study are just a few ways you can grow in knowledge, understanding, and find success in the Lord (Joshua 1:8; Psalm 119:104 ; Proverbs 24:3-4).

You might not need to attend Seminary or some other formal training, but you can:

1. read/meditate on/study the Bible

2. read Christian books, magazines, etc.

3. attend conferences and seminars

4. volunteer in a church department of education (i.e. Sunday School)

Fully Justified

1. There are times when people lie on you, talk bad about you, mistreat you, and use you to their advantage. It’s times like these when you want to fight back, speak your mind (or at least give them a piece of it), defend yourself, and avenge the wrong done to you. Even though many know that vengeance is the Lord’s and He’ll repay (Deuteronomy 32:35; Romans 12:19), the feeling of self-vindication doesn’t seem to go away.

2. There are times when you want to see the other person or group pay for what they did! You want them to know that you were the WRONG PERSON to mess with and to think twice before doing it again! You want to see them squirm and beg for your mercy and forgiveness (Proverbs 24:17-18).
