"For a righteous man falls seven times and rises again; but the wicked will fall into harm." Proverbs 24:16
Read: Luke 22:31–34
We are all capable of making mistakes, it is a part of life. When we make a mistake, though, we must have the courage to recognize it and resolve not to make the same error again (Proverb 28:13). When a child first learns to walk, he or she will stand up, take a few steps, and then fall down. Despite these failures, you'll see that he or she continues to attempt. The youngster will attempt to walk repeatedly, and over time, he or she will not only walk, but also run, leap, and jump, all without falling to the ground. Make sure you don't make the same mistake twice.
Can you imagine that some people gave up the race completely and decided to die there because they made a mistake in their trust in Christ? What a pity! Some people are unable to forgive themselves for renouncing Jesus at a critical juncture in their faith, or for succumbing to a sin that they have been preaching against their entire lives. These individuals should take a lesson from Apostle Peter, who denied Christ three times. He had to be reminded by the Lord that the battle was far from ended. Later, Peter led the other disciples in defending their faith in Christ and spreading the gospel throughout the world.
"Do not rejoice against me, O my adversary: when I fall, I will rise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light." Micah 7:8
The fact that you stumbled and fell does not indicate the enemy has won the battle for your life, according to this passage. He hasn't done any of these things. There's also a chance of a comeback, according to the article. In Jesus' Name, you will rise from your stumbling block. Your ascension will be even more imposing! You may argue that your case is bad because you've failed so many times that you've decided it's best to give up. You're completely wrong! The righteous man can fall seven times and still rise, according to Proverbs 24:16.
To fall seven times merely means that you may reach a point where you will experience what most people refer to as the final or ultimate fall. Even so, if you're a Christian, the Lord says you shouldn't lose hope. Make a new effort to reconcile with the Lord, admitting your weaknesses to Him and asking for His assistance. He will help you get back on your feet and then sustain you. So, you're still laying on the ground? Get up! Falling and rising in your Christian faith does not indicate that you are a failure; rather, it indicates that you are still in the babyhood stage of growth and need to trust Jesus Christ more.
