“The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked.” Proverbs 24:16 NLT
We would be foolish to believe that we will not have trials and difficulties in this life. God in His wisdom has allowed for them, not to be defeated, but for us to overcome. And when we do, to be that much stronger.
The message for us is clear from many perspectives.
“It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.” – Vince Lombardi
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill
“Everyone falls down. Getting back up is how you learn how to walk.” – Walt Disney
From the Bible:
“No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” – Philippians 3:13-14 NLT
God has created you for a purpose, this week persevere in what He has called you to.
