You Will Rise Again
Micah 7:8 NKJV "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."
Someone said that the downfall of a man is not the end of his life: so true, especially when you are a child of God! For a righteous man may fall seven times but he will rise again! I like the ERV; it says, "Good people might fall again and again, but they always get up." I have a good word for you today, you will rise again! Hallelujah!
There's something in you that cannot keep you on the ground! It gets you up every time you fall; it's the power of the Holy Ghost! Just when they think it's over, suddenly you bounce back and it's as if you never fell! Remember Samson? He fell, and they even had a party to celebrate his fall, they thought that by cutting his hair, Samson was a goner; forgetting that sooner or later, a man's hair will surely grow again! Right there on the ground, his hair began to grow again, and he accomplished in that final hour of his life, more than he did for many years before he fell!
Maybe you just lost your job, a business, or a very important opportunity; just maybe you lost an election; the enemy thinks he has just won a victory; no he hasn't! People may be laughing at you now, calling you all sorts of names, cheer up brother, cheer up sister, you will rise again, and you will have the last laugh! It doesn't matter how many times you've fallen before now, you are not a loser, you are not a failure, it is not over yet! You may have been knocked down several times, maybe the final whistle has even been blown; it still doesn't mean that it is over; it will never be over until you win! Rise up! Try again! Apply again! Fight again! You are destined to succeed! I see you not just rising, I see you soaring higher and higher! So shall it be, in Jesus name.
