    Higher Everyday Devotional By Pastor W.F Kumuyi THURSDAY, MAY 3, 2017- RISE UP AGAIN

    RISE UP AGAIN


    BIBLE TEXT:PROVERBS 24:16
    For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief" (Proverbs 24:16).


    The just man acts with fairness and is not partial; he is morally right in his actions. God called Noah a just and perfect man and Lot also was just and righteous (Genesis 6:9, 2Peter 2:7). However the just man may fall but unlike the wicked, he will rise again.

    Noah and Lot had their low points and it was due to wine. The just may also fall into difficulties and afflictions. "Though God permits the hand of violence sometimes to spoil his tent, temptations to assail his mind, and afflictions to press down his body, he constantly emerges; and every time he passes through the furnace, he comes out brighter and more refined," said Adam Clarke.

    As a user of this devotional, do not remain lying on the ground if you have fallen, unless you are not yet a "˜just man' therefore you must give your life to Christ now. Is your fall a problem of sin, poor examination performance, sickness or disharmony in the family? Do not give up, it is time to rise again. God will strengthen and help you (Isaiah 41:10).

    Challenge: "Fear thou not" is a watchword for true heroes.

    Prayer: O God, turn my stumbling blocks into stepping stones!

    Quote: Do not give up, it is time to rise again

    Bible Reading in one Year: Psalm 37:23-25; Micah 7:8-9
