Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light. Because I have sinned against him, I will bear the LORD's wrath, until he pleads my case and establishes my right. He will bring me out into the light; I will see his righteousness. Micah 7:8-9
Maybe sin has knocked you for a loop. Maybe it has wrestled you to the ground and pinned your back to the mat. You don't have to stay down. Today's passage is a bold reminder that it's time to get up, stand straight, and by God's grace, move forward.
For all who have been knocked down, read the verses again and then make these courageous statements with Micah.
Father, thank You for not giving up on me. Thank You for picking me up when I fall. Thank You for forgiveness. Thank You for restoration. Thank You for Jesus who paid the penalty for all my sin. Help me live in righteousness. In Jesus' name. Amen.
