“For though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again, but the wicked are brought down by calamity.” Proverbs 24:16 (NIV)
My walk with God is not always easy. No true walk with God ever is, all we have to do is look in our Bible. However, I have to say that while today’s Devotion had a request to it, I look at this passage today in a different way. To me, it tells me that, while I fall often, while I find things hard, I am a true follower because every time I fall, I get right back up. I continue to look up, even if once in a while Satan’s influence starts to creep in and pull me down, and I know that somewhere down the line, things will be brighter. God has given me my place—though I’m not totally sure I’ve found it or am fulfilling it—and things should end how they are supposed to.
