Scripture Reading: Micah 7:8
Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.
Reflection: The prophet Micah makes a discovery and announces it publicly through his prophetic voice. The discovery provides an information that gladdens the heart of the righteous and grieves that of the wicked. Much as the wicked will love to see the righteous fall and remain in that state, the information from Micah maintains that the righteous has, as a matter of fact, been designed by God to always stage a come back to glory. He captures it with the words ‘though he falls, yet shall he rise again’. This is corroborated by the writer of Proverbs with the words ‘ For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again’ -Prov 24:16. Don’t ever accept to remain in a fallen state, thinking that you can no longer make it. Remember, as a righteous person, you have been embedded in your spirit by God with what it takes to always come out of any fallen state, difficulties, calamities etc. You just can’t remain in a fallen state!
Prayer: Oh Lord, let what you have placed in me that makes it impossible for me to remain in any fallen state or predicament be activated.
Confession: I have not been designed to remain in any fallen state. My enemies cannot rejoice over me. If I happen to fail or fall, I will rise again.
