“For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again."

*DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, please help me to be more like Jesus each day. Help me to be kind to others, to care about others, to share the hope of the Gospel with others. I love Jesus and my greatest desire is to be more like my Savior each day. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!!!

“For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again, But the wicked shall fall by calamity.” Proverbs 24:16

Today's Devotional is a powerful word about something we all do every day, fail God. Even though it is the goal of every follower of Christ to live our lives perfectly as He did, the Bible tells us that we all sin and fall short of God's glory. It also says that if we say we don't sin we are a liar.

So accepting the fact that we all fail God at times, I want to focus today on how we respond when we fail. Listen to me closely, you will never be able to live this life victoriously until you learn the proper response when you fail God.

The most important thing you can do when you fail is to accept responsibility for your actions. We are masters at blaming others when we fail. As I share with you often, man has not really changed since the Garden of Eden. When Adam failed, he blamed Eve. When Eve was confronted with her failure by God, she blamed the serpent.

Admitting you were wrong, accepting responsibility for what you did is the most important thing you can do when you fail. When you take responsibility for your failure, you become sorry for letting God down and go to Him with a broken and contrite heart asking for forgiveness.

None of us are immune from sin. That is why God gives us His special promise in 1 John 1:9. It tells us if we will confess our sins, He will forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. We must trust His Word, know He has forgiven us, and move on to fulfill our purpose of serving and glorifying God with our lives.

You see, we are no good to God when we allow our sin to strangle us, to paralyze us. The enemy loves to use our sin against us, to hold it over our head. But the Bible says that when God forgives us, He not only forgives, but forgets. If God forgets, then we need to as well so that we can move forward and live victorious, productive lives for the Kingdom.

Jesus tells us in John 8:44 that satan is a liar, that he is the father of lies. When he speaks

Dear politically correct, godless, liberals who are genuinely offended at the sight of the Christ child in a manger, I have GREAT news for you! The next time you see Him, he won't be in a manger! Sadly, if you can't handle His first appearance, you're REALLY not going to like His second appearance.

Stop, Drop, and Roll won't work in Hell.

Why do black Democratic congresspersons seem so unhappy with record low black unemployment? Because it might mean unemployment for them. And their lives as political parasites will have been meaningless wastes.

bob>I wonder if Peter had this in mind when he spoke to Yeshua....

Matt 18:21

21Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother who sins against me? Up to seven times?”
