I woke up this morning with a line from a Toby Mac song stuck in my head: “We lose our way, we get back up again. It’s never too late to get back up again”
I was thinking that verse sums up what I want to see men and women do in their life each and every day. We will never be perfect with our thoughts, relationships, finances, career, and health. It’s good to improve because growth leads to maturity in Christ. No matter how much we improve, we will never reach a place of perfection.
That’s never the goal.
James 3:2 says: 2 We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.
Everyone get’s knocked down. It’s what you do next that matters. In every area of our life, we lose our way, but with the power of the Holy Spirit working in our live, we get back up again. This is what the Christian life is about. We have a God that is ALWAYS reaching out, reaching down and helping us back up again when we stumble.
Lamentations 3:22-24 in the Message paraphrase says:
22-24 God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out,
his merciful love couldn’t have dried up.
They’re created new every morning.
How great your faithfulness!
I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over).
He’s all I’ve got left.
God’s mercy is new every morning. His love for you never runs out. When we are unfaithful, He is faithful. So if you have fallen, i encourage you today to get back up again. It’s never too late to get back up again. God is there to dust you off, hug you and continue to walk with you on your journey of following Christ.
What’s steps are you going to take to get back up again today? Leave a comment below.
