Just get up!
We all have the mud to tread. We all feel like we are treading water. Remember you will get through this. We all have problems and regardless of others and our circumstances we must get up and keep moving. When you feel so knocked down you just can’t get up that’s when God can do some of His greatest works in you. When your circumstances have tied your hands to such an extent you feel unable to do anything that’s when God moves.
You need hope, you need A promise, you need something to change. When the indescribable hole is swallowing you, there is hope. There is purpose and you can be free from such a burden. This isn’t Gods best for you. You are to live a life full of victory.
The relationship that failed, the job that didn’t work out, the let down pulled you down. Today is your day to get back up.
“For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.”
Proverbs 24:16 KJV
I totally get it, just when you finally get up, you end up falling right after you start walking. Sometimes we trip over our own feet, fall up the stairs. Just because of the little failures doesn’t mean we won’t stop. Don’t jump into a pity party.
MICAH 7:1-8 AMP
“Woe is me (judgment is coming)! For I am Like one who gathers the summer fruits, like one who gleans the vintage grapes. There is not a cluster of grapes to eat, No first-ripe fig which my appetite craves. The godly person [who is faithful and loyal to God] has perished from the earth, And there is no upright person [one with good character and moral integrity] among men. They all lie in wait to shed blood; Each hunts the other with a net. Concerning evil, both of their hands pursue it and do it diligently and thoroughly; The prince asks, also the judge, for a bribe, And a great man speaks the [evil] desire of his soul. So they twist the course of justice between them. The best of them is [injurious] like a briar; The most upright is [prickly] like a thorn hedge. The day of your watchmen [that is, the time predicted by the prophets] And your punishment comes; Now shall be their confusion. Do not trust in a neighbor [because of the moral corruption in the land]; Do not have confidence in a friend. Guard the doors of your mouth From her who lies in your bosom. For the son dishonors the father and treats him contemptuously, The daughter rises up [in hostility] against her mother, The daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law-- A man’s enemies are the men (members) of his own household.
Instead, be expectant. Stand boldly. Face your lions and march forward!
But as for me, I will look expectantly for the LORD and with confidence in Him I will keep watch; I will wait [with confident expectation] for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me. Do not rejoice over me [amid my tragedies], O my enemy! Though I fall, I will rise; Though I sit in the darkness [of distress], the LORD is a light for me.”
MICAH 7:1-8 AMP
Sometimes it’s easier to get up than others. You will be delivered from the fear of failure so you can get up.
1. You will get through this
2. We all have problems
3. Regardless of others and our circumstances we get up.
“David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the Lord his God. Then David said to Abiathar the priest, the son of Ahimelek, “Bring me the ephod.” Abiathar brought it to him, and David inquired of the Lord, “Shall I pursue this raiding party? Will I overtake them?” “Pursue them,” he answered. “You will certainly overtake them and succeed in the rescue.””
1 Samuel 30:6-8 NIV
With Gods guidance and direction David prevailed with not one captive harmed. This is for you. Go to God for direction. Then get up, you have work to do.
I speak blessings and favor over you, go forward, you will triumph!
