Get Up and Start Over

Are you feeling “down” today? Are you discouraged because of your experience yesterday? In an unguarded moment, did you stumble and fall by yielding to sin? There is something worse than falling down – it is staying down. The wicked fall and shall not rise, but with a God’s child, it is not so. Though we do sometimes fall, we will not be content until we are restored. We shall not sin, but too often we do. Admit your failings. Don’t worry over them, but confess them.

Before Jesus died for us, He knew that we would continue to struggle with sin, so He made provision for our daily cleansing. Make a fresh start each day by taking time to confess your sins, to admit your weakness, and to ask God for his strength to do what He wants you to do. As you depend on the Lord’s grace and strength, you will soon know what victory really is!

Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the LORD upholds him. -PSALM 37:24
