Don't Give Up

Donnie McClurkin's song "We Fall Down, But We Get Up" was on my heart today.

Moreover, the lyrics to the song were on my heart.

Far too often, we forget about Jesus and condemn ourselves. From the big mistakes to the small ones, many of us are ready to throw ourselves into an emotional and mental prison, forsaking any blessing that God wants to send us.

...But God...

No matter how short we fall in the glory of God we must keep in mind that God knows us. He knew us before we were even born. He knew there was nothing in the natural that we could do to get ourselves into right standing with Him. However, this knowledge didn't diminish or hinder His intense love for us. Jesus is evidence of this.
Despite our shortcomings, God sent His Son on our behalf to become the balance we needed so that we could receive the eternal promise. Through Jesus we are given the Grace to receive the Spirit of Adoption whereby we receive full access to the promises of God.
We will fall down. There is no avoiding this. However, God's mercy has no limits and because of the manner in which He loves us, we are given the Grace to get back up, dust ourselves off, and continue moving forward.
Hold on. Don't give up.
May you be blessed, encouraged, and prosperous.
