| don’t give up | 🌸

The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked. (Proverbs 24:16 NLT)
Sometimes we read stories of people in the Bible and are amazed at how God used them, not realizing that God can use us in the same way. Moses, Noah, Elijah and Paul were all ordinary men. they didn’t have special talents or qualifications to offer God. Moses had a stuttering problem; Elijah became discouraged and Paul spent the first part of his life murdering Gods people. every Christian has faults and shortcomings yet God still wants to use you, he knows your weaknesses and where you struggle yet he has designed a perfect will for your life that he wants to accomplish through you. one thing that sets apart the people God using the Bible times was that they allowed God to work in their lives. they obeyed his commands and followed his will. yes, they made mistakes and sinned but they got back up and continued to follow the Lord. If you have fallen or continue to sin in some area of your life, don’t get discouraged. no one is perfect and even the most spiritual of Christians struggle with sin and temptation. rather than getting upset or discouraged ask God for forgiveness, get back up, and continue following God!
