So we can learn to get up.
1 Peter 5:10 ESV
And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
Why does the mother eagle push her young out of the nest?
This is the process she uses to teach her young to fly.
We as humans learn many things in life the same way.
Like gold is tried by fire, we too must be tried by life.
In life the pottery clay maker molds, God is molding us in this process called life, so that we will become what he imaged us to be.
Like painters who paint a picture, before he gets started he has an image in his mind and now he starts to paint knowing the outcome.
God has a picture of you in his mind of you before you were born.
He knows through life’s issues and circumstances you will make choices that will mold your every step on the way to that picture that God has of you.
There are many trials and tests in life that are meant only to get you to that beautiful picture God has in his mind.
Yes, we all have felled at many of the tests that were allowed by God for us to go through.
James 1:12 ESV
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
Falling is part of the test.
Falling is part of learning to get up.
Falling is part of success and succeeding in life.
Falling will make you better.
Falling will make you into the man or the woman you are to become.
God allowing you to fall will shape you into the vision you now see.
You must learn to get up.
Soon you will learn not to fall again.
Getting up builds assurance,
Assurance that God knows what he is doing to allow you to go through it and not destroying you.
Power is the strength you will continue to build up inside you.
Because getting up is hard.
Faith is what God is trying to get to you.
It will keep you believing in him and his purpose and plans for your life.
Endurance is sure to follow.
It builds a hard to stop attitude in you
Wisdom which is worth more than gold.
Your success in everything you do will be determined by the knowledge you obtained from being tried and tested like Gold in the fire.
Now that you know the reason why we fall down
What will you do?
I hope you will get up
Soon you will learn not to ever fall again.
2 Peter 1:10 NLT
So, dear brothers and sisters, work hard to prove that you really are among those God has called and chosen. Do these things, and you will never fall away.
