Hello Ladies, I pray that you are blessed and found favorable in the sight of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
As you know, the Lord is keeping me in the Book of Proverbs. I have fallen in love with that book over again. As I give the scriptures, I pray that you find the time out of your busy schedules and read the entire scripture.
(Proverbs 24:16), For though a righteous man/woman falls seven times, he/she rises again, but the wicked are brought down by calamity.
We have all heard that verse over and over again at some point in our spiritual journey. Here's my food for thought. If that man/woman is so righteous how is it that he/she keeps falling? Why is it that he/she falls seven times? That's a great question. Here is God's answer to you.
Even though a righteous man/woman falls seven times he/she has wisdom and the knowledge to know that not only do they need to get back up but that the God in them is what is sustaining them each time they fall. Even though you have fallen seven or even seventy times, if you have a relationship with God; He will always pick you back up. What makes you righteous is not how many times you didn't fall but how much you've learned each time that the Lord picks you back up.
Your faith, your relationship and constant communication is what makes you righteous in the sight of the Lord. It doesn't matter what the world sees, because we have a way of damning people to hell real quick; it's what the Lord knows to be true about you.
Just as sure as the devil is going to and from the heavens accusing you; believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is sitting on the right hand of God the Father pleading your cause. Visualize the Lord shaking His finger at the devil saying, "No, you can not have her, she's going through something right now, but she will rise up again with the strength that I gave her". PRAISE GOD!
Heavenly Father, I thank You for the strength that you give me to get back up again. And Father I pray that even if I can't see Your hand, that I trust Your plan, in Jesus name, Amen!
