Getting back up

I was talking to a guy once and he told me something about knife fighting. He said, "You will get cut." There’s no way around it. You will get cut. You must mentally prepare yourself so when you get cut, you don’t react negatively, but you control yourself.

I’m not entirely sure if that info is true, and I surely pray I never personally find out, but we can learn much from that idea. It’s kinda like the Christian life. No matter what you do, you will fall. You will fail. Every Christian has. Proverbs 24:16 says, "For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again:" It doesn’t say may fall, it says he falls. He will fall.

You will fall, that is decided. You now have to decide what you will do after you fall. I challenge you, decide to get up as soon as you fall. You don’t have to spend any more time in your failure. Rise again, Get up, and get up immediately.

You will fall, but you can decide how fast you get up. If you are struggling with a sin, I challenge you, don’t spend time in guilt. As soon as you recognize your fall, repent! Get right with God, and get right back to running your race for Him!
