“For the lovers of God may suffer adversity and stumble seven times, but they will continue to rise over and over again. But the unrighteous are brought down by just one calamity and will never be able to rise again. Never gloat when your enemy meets disaster, and don’t be quick to rejoice if he falls. For the Lord, who sees your heart, will be displeased with you and will pity your foe.”
Proverbs 24:16-18 (TPT)
Have you missed the mark you set for yourself in this brand New Year?.
Did you just do something foolish, and you feel like giving up?
Are you feeling helpless that habit you thought you overcame knocked you down again?
A righteous person may fall seven times, but he gets up again.
Even if good people fall seven times, they will get back up.
The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again.
Don’t stay down and defeated.
“Friends” around you who could have helped are now mocking.
Don’t let their comments and gossips continually make you feel ashamed.
Apostle Peter did not totally quit.
Yes, he felt like quitting.
He momentarily went back to his fishing lifestyle.
God did not give up on him, and Jesus appeared to him again.
God has not given up and will not give up on you too.
You have remained strong and consistent.
You have achieved this so far by Grace.
“We urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with everyone.”
1 Thessalonians 5:14
You are not Superhuman.
His Grace has helped you to walk supernaturally and overcome.
God sees your heart, and HE knows all your moves !!!
“Strengthen those who are discouraged. Energize those who feel defeated. Say to the anxious and fearful, “Be strong and never afraid. Look, here comes your God! He is breaking through to give you victory! He comes to avenge your enemies. With divine retribution, he comes to save you!” Isaiah 35:3-4 (TPT)
