If you fall, get up. Feet and legs are made for walking! Even a wheelchair bound individual- rise up and shine.
Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall, I will arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD will be a light to me.
The downfall of a man is not the end of his life. The bend on a road isn’t automatically the end of the road. Your fall is not the end of your journey. Your fall in business, the ministry and Christian life is not the end. You will rise and shine again. Failure is the other side of the success coin. It is part of success. To rise again, note these valuable nuggets.
One, discover your mistakes. Micah 7:8 confesses, when I fall, …when I sit in darkness. Discover from the height, and why, you have fallen, and repent. There is no man without mistakes. You see a man who claims he has never fallen before, then you see that man who has never tried any good venture. The great King David fell, but quickly repented, and God restored him.
Two, recharge yourself (cf. Prov 24:16). You still have the hope of rising again. Repackage yourself and your strategy, in preparation for a relaunch. Add the necessary ‘extra’ to ‘ordinary’ to become extraordinary. Take the bull by the horn. Take a bold step to start again. Never be afraid to restart. Even if you fail, that is part of your achievements. Learn from your past mistakes as you start afresh. Never you fear failure; fear is opposite of faith, and a sin against God.
In conclusion, your downfall is not your end. You can rise and shine at the mountain top, if you choose to do the right things in God. Follow God’s leading.
