It’s not a sin to fall, but a sin not to get back up!
Proverbs 24:16- “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.”
Joshua had lost the battle before the king of Ai. Joshua had fallen; the king chased his men and killed them. He was humiliated before everyone. What an amazing story from Sherry’s 6 a.m. post yesterday. You should read it again. “Joshua rent his clothes, and fell to the earth upon his face before the ark of the Lord… And the Lord said unto Joshua, get thee up!” Joshua 7:6 & 10
Years ago, Sherry and I had visited a woman preacher in the hospital. I knew she was a woman of God. She had gone to New York and gotten drunk with a man who seduced her. Then, she fell out of the bed, broke two bones, and she had other problems. She could hardly look at me when we visited her. She was so ashamed and discouraged. She started to cry… I told her, “get up out of the pigpen and serve the Lord! Go, defeat the enemy!!” She did just that! Today, she is doing great work for the Lord. The devil is on the run!
“It’s not a sin to fall, but it’s a sin, not to get back up!!” Jesus loves you… Bobby Burnette
