“For a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again, but the wicked shall fall by calamity.” Proverbs 24:16, NKJV.
For a just man, falling is not final. Who are the just? It is those whose sins have been taken away through Jesus. You may have fallen down, but you are just. You get back up. You rise.
A just man will never stay down because he is reminded that God is with him. He knows goodness and mercy follow him all the days of his life, and God’s mighty hand will always help him up. If you’ve fallen, rise from your place and take your seat as being seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Set your heart to receive God’s abundant grace and know that His plan is always intact. He has a plan already prepared for your comeback and your ultimate victory.
You are God’s man, and you are needed in these times. Your wife needs you. Your children need you. Turn away from any condemnation, shame, or regret. Let the joy of the Lord be your strength. Let it empower you to rise!
Confession: I choose to not wallow in a mistake but rise with joy and the knowledge of God’s acceptance of me. I serve a merciful and faithful God. Since He’s not condemning me, I will not either. I get back up! I am the just, and I am who God says I am. I rise from every circumstance. I am needed in these times. God’s plan for me will never change, and surely I have restoration ahead. I will never quit on the LORD because He never quit on me. I will praise Him! I rise!
