Proverbs 24:16, “The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked.”
The godly may fall but they don’t stay down. The old saying goes, “You can’t keep a good man down.” It is the same with the man or woman of God. When we stumble along the way or we face hard times, we must remember that God’s grace pulls us up. His hands reaches down to us, all we must do is receive His helping hand.
The ungodly don’t have the same hope as the saint of God. The ungodly’s attention is focused on the situation at hand. The godly have their eyes on the prize, on the finish line and they see the trials and failures as mere hurdles.
Don’t get down because of your temporary circumstances. Keep your eyes on Jesus. Dust yourself off and journey on.
