Get Back Up-Monday Motivation

The steps of a man are established by the Lord,
    when he delights in his way;
24 though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,
    for the Lord upholds his hand.

Psalm 37:4 esv



When you slip God is not surprised. Nothing we do is a surprise to the Lord. When you sin God does hate your actions, but He does not love you any less. Sometimes we can get so disappointed in ourselves that we actually run further and further away from Jesus. But when we sin God is not waiting to beat you down. No, He wants to build you back up!

When you slip and stumble accept it for what it is. You have sinned. But now it’s over. Look back to see how you can avoid the same situation in the future, but move on. God knows that you are not perfect. That’s why you need Him. Confess your sins to the Lord, dust yourself off, and continue to walk with Him. Real discipleship is not displayed through perfection (which is impossible), but through resilience.
