It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, Satan will jump out on you and catch you unaware with certain situations.
Whatever your weakness, know that Satan will come and present to you the perfect scene to play your weakness out.
You’ll probably fall. You’ll probably fall into the trap and once you realise that you’ve fallen short, you will then (hopefully) get up.
We all fall short (Romans 3:23).
Don’t believe that only you do because I guarantee that the brother you sat behind and the sister you spoke to fall short too.
We all aim to be Christ- like in our everyday but the truth is, we all fall short.
Whether you held onto unforgiveness for a second too long or judged somebody, or whether you got angry rather than displaying calmness to telling one of those ‘silly’ ‘white lies’, we all fall short at some point but the important thing to do is to call on God and get back up from the fall.
Getting up is what separates us from the world.
Getting up and calling on the Lord in the midst of it all is what makes us His and Him ours. It’s what makes our relationship with Him so special.
You make a mistake time and time again and see if man will forgive you seventy times seven (Matthew 18:22). See if man will accept your cry for help. See if man will forgive you and not hold it against you.
We have to call to the Lord when we fall short.Proverbs 28:13 tells us that “People who conceal their sins will not prosper, but if they confess and turn from them, they will receive mercy.”
God KNOWS that we are “infected and impure with sin” (Isaiah 64:6) ever since man’s fall (Adam and Eve in Genesis). Continuing from Isaiah 64:6, it says that “Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind”.
If we let those same sins sweep us away we would remain fallen into death and then Satan would have won. We need to call on God as soon as we realise what we’ve done. He will forgive if you come to Him.
Hebrews 4:16 – Boldly go to the throne of grace.
1 Peter 5:7 – Cast your burdens unto the Lord.
Matthew 11:28 – The Lord doesn’t want you to be heavy laden so whenever you fall short, call on Him.
He won’t turn you away and He certainly won’t hold your fall against you (Acts 3:19) because “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” (Isaiah 1:18).
Let us bless His holy name.
He is worthy of all the praise.
Jehovah Rapha, heal me each time I fall. Strengthen me and grant me Your wisdom.
Though I fall short, I remain fixed on the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14).
Brother, sister… PLEASE. Remember to call on the Lord the next time you fall short.
He is there for you.
