There are times in our lives when we get knocked down. We do not stay down, we get back up. Jesus will lift us up when we get knocked down, He will never leave us there. Sometimes we get knocked down in our spirit, when we are on our jobs, and sometimes just by life itself. As Jesus carried His cross on His back, He fell going up that long dusty road to be crucified, but He got back up every time. He did not let that stop Him from doing what He knew He was destined to do for us. He never complained along the way; He embraced it. He was obedient.
This is what the Scripture says in Second Corinthians 4:7-9-But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed-
Getting knocked down does not make us weak, it makes us stronger. We get up and we keep on going no matter what the situation may be. We never give up on our hopes and our dreams, because Jesus will never give up on us. He wants us to have the desires of our hearts. We need to go to Him even when we fall, not just when we are standing and nothing is going wrong. We all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God according to Romans 3:23. We serve a forgiving God, and when we fall, or get knocked down, He picks us up and set our feet on a plain path. It is the straight and narrow path that leads to eternal life.
Matthew 7:13-14: The Narrow Way “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. “Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Yes, we get knocked down, but we are on our journey to a better place. We are on our way to our home not built by mans hands. All praises be to our God, and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who was and is and is to come! Amen!
